Logo for Storm Shutter contractor

Anonymous's picture

Client wants full-color logo for immediate use in color copies and newspaper advertising. He asked for a "superhero contractor defending the home against hurricanes." He may, in the future, want a scaled back logo for use on shirts, letterhead, etc...

It's some think like electrician, draw some storm aground the huse shoed, and the man is stand and his shadow is protecting the home then show is power understand ?
(sory my english is not so good) . You write 2 shorts notes, like Keeping the stroms out since 1998 and Exterior Protective specialists both are not working i think .

One show one home destroyed with storm and other safe in the hands around the man in the logo.
Well any way you are better then me.

Designing is what.. Makes me Happy!!

This isn't a logo

You don't have a logo there, that's an entire ad.

Get rid of the house, the guy, the stupid mark of a storm on the left side, the "since 1998" text, change the fonts - then you have the beginning of a logo.

Big time agree with Jim. This

Big time agree with Jim. This is an illustration/full-scale ad layout. When executing a logo, try to break it down to its most fundamental base.

Also, for presentation purposes, deliver what the client asked for, but also throw a couple more into the ring that are your own concepts.

Sorry but this looks like a terrible ad someone did in MSWord. Start over, tell the client he's an idiot for wanting a "superhero contractor"(yes, I know you can't really tell the client he's an idiot) in a logo. Develop a concept that can better tie together the elements in a way more subtle fashion. Come up with something way better then his suggestions and present, he'll change his mind about wanting the clipart bullshit.

This would maybe have been good for a logo 50 years ago in tajikistan. Maybe you should try something else. Oh and btw that cant be a logo.

the Hurricane looks like two overlapped commas.

No logo here.

I agree with JimD, it's not a logo. It's an advertisement. A logo should only have a couple of elements. You've got at least 5 here. Start over and simplify. Also, make sure it's a vector illustration so that it can be used in a variety of situations.

Edit: After looking at your portfolio, it seems that this isn't the first time you've designed something like this and claimed it as a logo. I would suggest reading up on what a logo actually is and how to design one before trying again. I wrote a rant about it a while back, but I would suggest doing some more research to really overhaul your entire concept of logo design. It will really help in the long run.
