I need your honest opinion.

Postby Hooch » Sat Jan 24, 2009 10:39 pm UTC

I'm trying to make a new logo, which is based off of the Greek flag. Since I don't want to have a simple recolor, I've thrown in a few filter effects. I'd be obliged if you guys could pick out which one looks best.

A forum member at ScrewAttack.com went ahead and uploaded them on his Photobucket.

#3 for sure

As everyone else said, I think #3 looks the best.

I guess it is nice you are getting a unified front on this.

The top two have far too similar of colors for the design to really stand out, whereas the bottom two look kind of messy and unfriendly.

Out of the others, the one everyone else favors (#3) is certainly the clearest and neatest. I do think it's just a tiny bit boring though--I kind of like the cloudy-ish background in #4, although #4 as a whole comes across as looking kinda faded in an unappealing way. I'd probably recommend against #4 in general just because it doesn't pop out enough.

I like the idea of #5, but I don't feel like it quite works. What I'd really like to see is to if you'd take #3, maybe do something similar in the corners the way you did with #5, but somehow sharpen it up a bit. Make it look a bit more purposeful. Something subtle, simple and symmetric might do the trick, although it does look like you were intentionally trying to avoid too much symmetry there.

Yeah, I put a little bit too much gray in #4.

Favourite: #2, then #3.

Okay, I actually like #6 and #7. I like they have more texture to them, seems more than a flat image, there is something interesting and unique.

I like six, but three is a close second.

6 followed by 7. 3 is boring.

I'm a big fan of 6/7/2 just because they're more exciting. I don't understand what's so great about #3, but I guess it's pretty good too. kind of boring though.

Well, those that chose 3 probably didn't like the other filters, and #3 was then the winner by default.

It seems that 6 and 7 are catching up, so I'll wait a little while longer.

I like seven the best, six has too many effects, and three is a bit boring. But those are my top three.
