I very much like Sipala Landscape Services logo. There in NY. This is the style I'm looking for. Here is there web site http://www.sipalalandscape.com. There logo is in the top left corner of there web page.
Needs to be square, All 4 sides equal.
Don't want fading colors.
I like the look of depth from a light back-ground (Sky) to a darker for-ground (House & Earth) as illustrated in my logos numbered 1 & 2 as well as Sipala's logo.
As you can see there are no carpenters tools in any of the logos I illustrated.
Would like to work with the winning designer in the future for a phone book ad, business card and a job site sign.
NEW NOTES SUBMITTED 10-14-12
Base upon the logos so far I have a better understanding of what I'm looking for.
This will be a large size logo meant for t-shirts, job-site signs, truck and large ads. Most likely I'll have a smaller version of this logo made in the future for smaller applications but I'm not going to worry about that at this point.
I'm looking for something that looks like an event poster with my company name at the bottom. Something with that kind of artistic sensibility. So far deezigh is closest to what I'm looking for.
I don't like any of the houses so far. Please stick to the houses I designed in my logos. Step roof pitch, wider chimney, No roof overhang. Most of the houses are too big as well.
Also don't like most of the sunbursts I've seen. The center point from which all the sunburst start from is too high up in the logo. Another way of explaining this is to say that the left & right most sunbursts are too horizontal. The sunburst in the logo I designed (logo number 1) is too vertical. Would also like to see a 40 count sunburst.
Please use the same style ground and bushes/trees I designed in my logo number 1. Most of the logos so far use broad wavy lines which I don't like. These need to be sharper. Not all logos have to have a tree/bush line. I haven't decided on this yet.
Also, I would like the house to be sitting on a slight hill which is also illustrated in my logo (logo number1)
The glass in the windows should be the same color as the sky.
