    The original image are both on a white background and can be delivered to you if you so choose. Feedback appreciated.

    Hello, I like to thank you all for your interest in my contest and those that summited en entry.

    What I have is a pending U.S. Trademark for the word YEARNAMES / YEAR NAMES, the letters can be any size, style or color. I can not have a (.com) after yearnames.

    If i was to use LongHaul's logo I would have to file for a new trademark.
    LongHaul incorporate the word mark and a image in to one.

    I'm not so sure about staniel logo, I think I can use the icon and keep my word mark YEARNAMES and then later on I can file for just the Design.

    My pending trademark is why I would like two files, one with (TM) and the other with the symbol (®) if yearnames gets registered.

    I would like to give feed back on what has been submitted.

    staniel
    Do you have a banner also? looks like you have one going, I like that too.
    I also have a word mark for advertising ( Build a Place in Cyberspace)
    I like your logo, name, color and style, looks good.
    The icon is not that interesting to me, I would not use that.
    I also like the fact you mentioned that you did this with adobe illustrator and assume its in vector file.
    Why I would like Vector file, there are a few reasons, My site is under construction to increase the width and resolution, I can use in banner ads and maybe get business cards.

    LongHaul
    Nice work, but not what I'm looking for.
    Read my post before this one.

    tyjunior
    Thats not my style, the color looks dark green and the Y is looking like its something else then a letter.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure I quite understand. Why would my logo require a new trademark??

    What do you mean by incorporating the word mark and image into one? Isn't that what I did? Is it just not the style you're looking for?

    BTW mine are done in Adobe Illustrator, so adding or moving the TM or ® isn't a problem.

    IF some one knows more about trademarks can you clear this up?
    You all make Logos and some one should know more then I do.
    I will research more.

    I have not filed for
    Mark Drawing Code(3) DESIGN PLUS WORDS, LETTERS, AND/OR NUMBERS


    my app:
    Word Mark YEARNAMES

    Standard Characters ClaimedMark Drawing Code(4) STANDARD CHARACTER MARK

    look up US Tradmarks in Google
    Lots of rules and laws
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Other related info:



    My ideas on what I seek in this logo contest is:
    Clean easy to read, Style, Font style, Colors, Blues, shads of gray / black, and or maybe red.

    Icon theme: New year items, birthday items, fireworks, time, father time and Baby

    Emphasize on the Y and N example: yearNames, Year Names


    The time for this contest is a bout 3 more days unless I get the one idea I'm looking for.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    You are correct, it is a vector file. Based on your feedback, I will eliminate the icon. I will also work on creating something more befitting to your specifications.

    Thanks,

    Staniel

    Hello, Staniel

    So far I like your entry.

    I have a few questions and a modification to be done.

    What colors are in your design and why is your design so light in contrast?

    The tag line, can you make it larger?

    Hello,

    Thank you for the feedback. You are right..my logo looks lighter. I added another one with darker colors so you can compare both. My colors are blue and gray.

    I have 2 sample banners listed for you. Hope you like it!

    Thanks,

    Staniel

    Hello, Staniel

    Can you edit logo a tad? If so:

    I would like YEAR in Royal Blue and NAMES in Dark Gray.
    Make the (TM) smaller, tiny.
    The tag line same color as YEAR

    Banner:
    The logo YEARNAMES make that 1/2 the size it is now, left side.
    can you also add:

    Build a place
    .......in
    Cyberspace. with (TM) and (R)

    and
    size #2
    24 / 7
    Sales & Support
    (480) 624-2500



    A Icon I have in mind: A circle with a beveled edge - 1/8 inch web 2.0 royal blue.
    inside the circle a dark gray same color as logo's NAMES with a YN centred, YN in a royal blue flat.

    Thanks Gregcyber

    Hi,

    Thank you for the earlier feedback. Based on your comments, I've revised the logo for you. Just in case, I've created a variety of buttons.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thank you for the feedback! It makes it so much easier when detailed instructions are given. Thank you:)

    I've revised the earlier banner and the colors. Just in case, I've also changed things around a bit so you can see the comparison.

    Please let me know what revisions you require.

    Thank you,

    Hello staniel

    Logo looks good!

    Banner needs a touch up.

    Is banner in vector?

    The YEARNAMES (logo) with the tag line, Make that a little smaller, keep it on the left side.

    The color for 24/7 Sales & Support (480) 624-2500 should be gray, same as Build A Place In Cyberspace. No high lightning like you have in your last redo. (top)
    Can you make Sales & Support (000)-0000 the same size as Web Address Service?
    Sales & support (000)-0000 seems to be to far to the right, can you move it over 6 or 7 spaces to the left. I would like Sales & Support to be centred under Build a Place In Cyberspace

    The (R) thats at the end of Build A Place In Cyberspace can be removed, also make the TM tiny, like you have on the YEARNAMES

    Move Build A Place In Cyberspace to the right and up one or two lines, keep the last letter (e) 4 spaces from the end of banner.
    Increases text size on Build A Place In Cyberspace to #4, keep the same color.

    I hope I explained well, Thanks

    Hi,

    Thank you for the prompt feedback!

    I've revised the banner to your specifications. The banner is 100% vector. All of my work is done in illustrator cs3.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
