What's this logo look like?

    Hi @Braden-Hallett, I see a Big B with a little bee, but if I squint, I see the word β€œBoo”

    Iiiiiiinteresting!



  • @Nyrryl-Cadiz said in What's this logo look like?:

    @Braden-Hallett maybe you can remove the letter B.

    Just have the actual little Bee guy? I suppose as long as I had my name under/beside it it'd work well!



  • Thanks everyone! It is indeed a Bee πŸ™‚ But one never knows when what I see won'e be what others see, lol



  • @Braden-Hallett
    It looks like a bee to me.
    I like the fact that the logo is not a closed circle. I learned in a class that open circles give the impression that you are open and flexible with clients.
    I think it’s cute and easy to remember. Black is elegant for stationery and goes with everything. You can make a nice round seal or stamp. I like it!

    That's a deep dive for sure! I have a hard time thinking about art in that way. It brings me back to English class where profs would wax eloquent about how "classic english novel 'X'" had a laundry list of deeper meanings. Kinda like listening to someone try and psychoanalyze another person if you get what I mean.

    But if open circles do give that impression, then hooray πŸ˜ƒ !

    @Braden-Hallett Quick question, I saw that someone mentioned just having the bee. What were your thoughts for having both the "B" and the bee?



  • @jaepereira said in What's this logo look like?:

    both the "B" and the bee

    Like, how do I feel about the logo as it is right now?


  • SVS OG

    @Braden-Hallett like what were your thoughts when you made it with the B and the bee? Like why both?



  • Nest to the B or the bee? The thing on the right looks like a bee. If thats what you were tryna communicate that's perfect. I would say the comp is a little awkward since there are two objects and your eye bounces between them weird. I think its a little off also because the logo seems to be divided in half. Maybe moving one object to a third would work beter, maybe consolidating both the Bee and the B into one object could solve the other problem as well. I dont know I'm not great a graphic design, so take what i say with a grain of salt I guess. I do really like the style and the circle thing you have going there. I can't wait to see the finished product! Hope this helps!

    ah! Cool πŸ™‚ My nickname is just "B" and I like Bees. I felt just a "B" in a circle was boring, so I wanted a bee in there too.

    I think you're right! Things could be balanced a tad better πŸ™‚



  • IMO, it would be better to have a single object as a logo, else the two will fight for space.

    Have you considered the idea that the bee's wings looks like the letter 'B'? A lowercase cursive 'b' could be tweaked to look like a cute bee.

    I agree with the idea to include your name with the logo. McDonald's, Apple and Adobe used to have both name and icon on packaging until they figured their brand was popular enought to be just icon.



  • Taking time to think about it, I think I'm in the "single object" camp as well. If I were to recommend to a company what to do from a branding perspective, it would be to make the icon just the Bee in the circle and remove the "B", then create variations that included the bee circle icon by itself plus versions with it paired with the name.

    I really like the way the bee is drawn so I think it would stand out in a distinctive way on it's own.

    At the end of the day, the connection between your name and the bee will be vague until someone meets you or reads about you on your website. So the job of the brand is to be immediately distinctive and unique, and then to reinforce your personality even after someone gets the symbolic connection.

    I saw the number 3, before a B, just at first fast glance.

    The bee looked like a pendant to me, with the antennae being the chain, but I deal with jewelry a lot, so my brain is wired to see that I guess.

    The eyes are the same size as the wings, at first when I looked at it closer I saw a really cartoony fly. I dunno, just thoughts.

    I would draw a few bees, see if any of them feel right. Can always stick with the original.
