    Hi @BagusDesign , thanks for joining the competition! Out of the three designs you submitted, we love ingenuity of this design where you are using the middle O as the Lemon symbol. The graphic design of the Lemon also looks very contemporary and stylish.

    I have two suggestions to tune the idea: First, the fonts are not conveying the sleek, high-end, and modern feel like Apple or Tesla. Second, not sure if it is due to low-resolution JPG export but the logo doesn't look crisp. May be a higher quality export (you can put your watermark on it to protect it) might look better to the client.

    Thanks again for the submissions!

    Hi @getdomain4u , thank you for joining the competition! You have picked great color combinations to showcase the logo. I also like the organic feel of the Lemonly font. Your style is more organic and it looks nice so you should continue with the vibe for future revisions.

    Couple of suggestions to consider: I am not so clear about the symbol you designed. It looks more like a lotus to me rather than a Lemon. Also if there is a way to merge the symbol with the text like Nike logo or "Traveler's insurance" logo, that would be great.

    Thanks!

    Hi @Blue Tamaraw , thanks for your submission! What we like the most about your logo is you are highlighting that client is a high-tech AI company. But the client doesn't like to see the PCB electric circuit style that you added inside the lemon.

    Also check out the other feedback I shared with other designers : it might give you some more ideas about the font and the color.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for joining the competition @MJ15 ! You are going for an organic, bright color look which is unique so far among all submissions.

    My first suggestion is about the Lemon symbol: it is not clear to me what are the three dots inside Lemon. If the symbol is well-thought out with a clear meaning, it will be easier for me to explain it to the client. And second, the colors are looking almost neon on my screen, so not sure if they will print well. Please confirm that the colors are printable on paper / plastic.

    Thanks!

    Wow @xaralee , you are starting out very strong! This is one of the top submissions so far, so thank you for the great work!

    I have couple of ideas to bounce back at you: Client liked the font with cut-lines more than the solid lines. One of their request is if there's any way to make the font more sleek, crisp, and high-end looking? Right now the font looks a bit blurry.

    Second, is there a way to do something more meaningful with the middle 'O' in Lemonly? Perhaps integrate the symbol with "O", or make a pie-chart in it or something? I trust it to your imagination and judgement.

    Thanks!!

    Thank you for the submission Maykon! You used green lemon instead of yellow lemon, which is a unique take.

    I like the colors, but I am not sure the style matches client's brief. The current style looks like a hand-made soap logo or vintage style logo, so unfortunately it doesn't match client's need for a modern, sleek style. Do you have something more modern in mind?

    Great start @SGDESIGNS ! You have started out strong: the colors are great, the overall feel of the logo is also very crisp and sharp. This is definitely on the right track for what the client needs!

    Couple of suggestions for you: I am not sure the symbol looks like a lemon (It looks more like a Menora to me). And second, the font is very similar to the default sans-serif fonts that come free with Windows. Can you pick some other sleek font from https://www.fontspace.com/ or https://www.dafont.com/ ?

    Thanks!
