Opinions? ::UPDATED::

The lovely lady with whom I am discussing the Geelong Brown Owls with, upon visiting my blog, suggested I might want to draw a logo for the group. I love a project (in fact, it’s almost the only way to get me to do anything…) so of course I agreed, but I decided that I wanted to do a “proper” logo, something a bit slicker than one of my drawings would be, & have been playing around in Inkscape.

I still think I am an absolute beginner with this program & don’t want to tell you how long it took me to get to this stage via various tutorials & helpful tips, but I would like to know what you think of these?

Which do you prefer (I won’t tell you my favourite)? I was going for a retro vibe, but not being a Graphic Designer I’m not sure if I’ve done enough or too much or am on the completely wrong track altogether!

:: I listened to Nic (She IS an expert after all) & although I had tried the thick outline with the beige oval last night, I didn’t really like it. Tried again this morning with fresh eyes & was happier, but had to add something… so below is yet another option. I like it! ::

  1. Excellent work - I love Inkscape!!
    I vote for C .... but ... if you were up for edits, I would do A with a beige circle around it like C has cos I like the dark brown shaddowy effect on the owl more in A.

  8. I like D the best as I like the brown outline but the scissors in the centre keep saying "snip" and I'm not sure about their placement.... Cherrie

  11. I like the last one , with the nest.x

  12. I like the last one too. A Mama owl with her crafty eggs in her nest. Sweet sweet sweet.

    You have done an excellent job, especially for someone who considers themselves to be a novice at these things. :)

  13. It's "A" or "C" for me! Well done, these are amazing - and I'd keep the "not a graphic designer" thing quiet, noone would ever know!!

  14. I thought C too...given that Brown Owl was traditionally a brownie thing - I think the "badge" patch look is very retro

    ReplyDelete
  15. Now that I see them all together - the last one is THE BOMB - excellent work. I would be proud to wear that badge! Nic x

  16. A or C for me. I like the concept of the nest but the others win on simplicity.

  17. Egg shapes instead of circles?
    But really, they're all great.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ooh, that's a tough one, but it seems to be A that grabs me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would say 'A', assuming it doesn't have a set background, because then it could go on anything.... i.e. add a branch for stationery, etc., or sit in the crest of the moon, etc.,...you did ask...lol... :) Happy crafting, Jenny

  20. Love your sweet little owls! Clever girl! I must investigate inkscape!! Thank you so much for my gorgeous little sausage dog bunt - love love love it!

  21. i like the second one the best. I feel like the last one is a bit busy. I like the three images a bit larger and outside the owl. What a cute concept!

    I stumbled upon your blog and just wanted to say hi!
