I have tried making a logo "CRITIQUE needed"

    Is this logo too simple, "childish, or anything like what I described to sell?
    SEMrush
    OR, OTOH,

    Is it professional enough to sell.

    No, not selling here, just need a critique

    This is a logo I need critiqued. I think it looks "peppy" I can say, but I dunno what you think.

    Nice Logo. Sell depends on the need of the buyer.

    It already looks good and professional. I look the color and shape of the logo is already representing bluevine .

    the perspective is making me want to look at the the graphics rather than the text a little, just some thoughts and the shadow definitely not needed.

    First of all, start by removing the shadow and if you do want one, make it very subtle.

    its simple and good but not as much catchy as it should be. The product's logo should be like some thing that attracts the buyers at first look. The outer shadow isn't needed and make it little big and change the writing style of text written!

    I'm an amateur myself but I really like it. One thing I would like to say though is that if you haven't created that in vector software, you may want to. That's not going to scale very well otherwise.

    I'm sorry but it's not professional enough to sell. Try to spend some time online visiting logo galleries, spend some time in Illustrator, watch tutorials.

    Oh, I forgot to add... work on the logo idea & concept before you even touch AI, you need to create it in your imagination first.

    Well, the shape there doesn't tell me anything about what BlueVine is - and your logo should immediately make the viewer understand what the company is about. BlueVine could be anything, but just based on the name I guess it has something to do with plants or selling plants/flowers - so I would see something vine-related coming from the text characters. But that's just the concept part.

    For this logo specifically I think you should probably look into some logo design fundamentals. When you make a logo, you should make a 1 or 2 color version, and you should make a version that's going to go on a black/dark background. This logo wouldn't really work so well on a dark background because of the shadows. You also have to consider how it's going to be used, for instance, this logo may look okay on a letterhead or stationary, but would it look good on a business card? The smaller it gets sized down, the worst this will look and that's based on the fact that you have more blurred/fading edges than you have hard ones. There is also a stark contrast between the shape and the text, the text is completely plain and unstyled where the shape has an outer glow, a drop shadow and a stroke. You should apply the same effect to the text, or remove it. But I think removing it from the shape is the better option.

    If this shape is relevant to the company, then I think you should just drop the style on it, and maybe give it some perspective, make the text larger and closer to the shape.

    Nice logo. I do not know much about logo designing. The outer shadow looks bit odd. That's all i can say.

    I'm an amateur, but I think the logo has a bit to much. Try make it a bit more simple. The shade effects is not needed, and when working with logo, you should always try make it work as black & white too. The shades are gonna be a problem there. So I would remove the shades completely.

    The small inner ring should be moved up slightly, to keep the depth perspective consistent with how you positioned the larger inner ring. I would also make the top part of the inner ring smaller, just like you did with the larger inner ring. Otherwise it looks good (minus the shadow, like others have mentioned)
