    So awesome! These are really (really) great. We hope you do another round for us!

    My feedback for you is:

    1. The fonts would be really hard to read when it's on a label and it's a thumbnail. Can we pick one that's more legible when it's really tiny?

    2. The rose icon is too complex - can we simplify it?

    3. We want to be sure we don't remind someone of Tequila Rose. ; ) (It is a yummy drink though if you're into that sort of thing...)

    Thanks!! Can't wait to see what you come up with next - this was great!

    Thanks, Houssem! I think the font could be a bit more feminine, can you try another one? And the flower doesn't quite look like a rose. It reminds me of a Hawaiian logo (which, hey, who doesn't love Hawaii?!) but not quite a fit for us.

    Would love to see another design from you! Thanks!! : )

    Hi Wend666,

    Super love that you saw how it would look on our label! The only bummer about that is we're changing the label too. ; ) Do you mind trying to find a more unique font? We have a lot of competition and trying to make it as stand alone and unique as possible.

    Thanks a ton! Looks great!

    Wow, what great work! I think the font is too rounded and soft. Can we use something a bit more unique that would be a good support to this? Maybe something with a little more character? It's a smidgen too mainline standard font-like.

    The icon might be hard to discern when it's really small. Can we do something a bit less abstract so that it's more readily identifiable as a rose?

    Thanks for the great presentation!!

    Thanks, Houssem! So, we're going to want to stick to a one color logo, if we can. And it needs to stay Pantone 2045 (or, for your work, you can use HEX #F178AD). We won't want to use red - it's too harsh for our market.

    The middle font is the best! Can we get some more options similar to that one?

    The rose icon is cool! It's just a bit too complex to be legible on a small icon when it's on a label in thumbnail size. Can you maybe simplify it?

    Thanks! : )

    Thanks, Houssem! We're only going to move forward with a pink option, so you can just stick with that color. Can we see a few different options of a similar logo mockup? I'll be honest that I'm not digging that particular rose icon. : / It almost looks more like a lotus. Can you move it in front of the name and not use it as the "O"?

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I really like to "O" in Rose now, so that was a good change! It's got a lot of character.

    I love your presentation - it looks great. Still not loving the illustration of the rose. The weight was too light and complex on the first version and the second design doesn't look like a cohesive illustration + it's a bit heavy.

    Thanks for your persistence!

    Hey, Borduria!

    I definitely liked your first mockups better. This one is too complex and not as cohesive as the others you've already given. The intricate detail will get lost on a label that'll be featured as a thumbnail image.

    Thanks! Can't wait to see your next round that's similar to your first round! Those were great.

    Hey, Borduria!

    Thanks! I think the font on the bottom is best - the other fonts just aren't as premium as your first round. The flower strikes me as a daisy instead of a rose? It seems a bit too basic and kid-like.

    Thanks!!
