Which logo should I choose GIVE-A-WAY!

Friday, May 2, 2014

Okay fellow hunters and gatherers.  I have a real crisis on my hands.  And, I think it may be a permanent crisis:  choosing the business logo.  How many businesses actually love their logo, like dream about how awesome it is every night?  I am slightly exaggerating.  But, the logo is super important, and I want to make sure I am picking the best one for Margaret Turner Designs.  If you aren't familiar with my company, please check out Margaret Turner Designs Website and Margaret Turner Designs Facebook Page.

So, the dilemma:  I love the Horseshoe Crab as my logo, but Matthew thinks the Octopus would be a better choice.  I need your help in deciding.  Okay, here's the run down.  At least I have only 2 choices.

Think about the Horseshoe Crab.  This amazing prehistoric beauty has been around for 480 million years old.  It is resilient.  It knows how to survive in the crazy world that is the ocean.  And, it has been here forever.  So, I see my business personifying the Horseshoe Crab.

Matthew thinks that I should use the Octopus Logo, created from a watercolor I did of the incredible beauty Not that I did the octopus justice, I am sure if I meet an octopus later she will rail me for making her pink.  But, when you think about the Octopus personifying my business, it makes logical sense. With the many tentacles that the octopus has, she can obviously multi-task.  In addition, it can represent the different products and industries Margaret Turner Designs can go into.  

With that said, I would love input on the logo you like best.  Comment on this post telling me which logo you prefer, and you will be in the running for any Margaret Turner Designs product of your choice, in the design of your choice.  That could be a scarf in the Octopus Design, or one of our new tote bags in the Sea Urchin Design.  Whatever you want that I sell.

Here they are.  Comment with either the Octopus Logo or the Horseshoe Crab Logo.





















Decisions are the worst.  So, I really appreciate your help.  The logo with the most votes will be Margaret Turner Designs new logo.  Voting will end tonight at midnight, so exercise your right to win, and help our logo team (which, is only me).


Cheers and thanks!
Margaret

  5. Hi Margaret! I vote for the horseshoe crab logo. The octopus is whimsical, but the horseshoe crab has an element of elegance to it. It's a pre-historic creature, as you mention, and that draws parallels to the timeless classics that you design!
