I made a logo for my dad's company. I'm stuck because I can't decide which one to pick. Also it's my first logo so I'm not sure if it's the best.

Background info:

  • He is a handyman, but primarily manages a residence.
  • He does cleaning and other chores for the residence such as installing a lamp or what not.
  • The residence consists of 4 towers. I processed this within the logo. The last tower is the tallest, which is why I made that one so in the logo. Also, he wanted to have a blue color for his brand identity.

I reworked this logo because it had 3 towers. I did this because I liked the ratio of space the logo takes.

But then I realised a logo should be realistic.

This is the rework (2nd version with variations) enter image description here

    Hi Ous. There doesn't seem to be any actual question here. You may benefit from reviewing the critique guidelines and then editing your question.

  • which logo is better = subjective question. Also logos don't always have to be realistic, for example Apple doesn't sell apples.

If it's a logo for your father's company, which as you describe in the background info it's a service company, it's a bit difficult to decide which logo is the most appropriate because instead of making a logo for your father you have made a logo for the residence.

Maybe you should study well what are the most important conceptual points that define your father's work and from there start to design a logo.

For example, the number of towers and which is the highest is not relevant to perform those services.

On the other side there are important points that are not reflected: handyman, manager, cleaning, installing, or others that can be added such as efficiency in service, professionalism, speed ... I think a conversation with the client (your father), a paper and a pencil would be a great help.

    Thank you so much for your input. I thin you are right and I have to start over again. The main thing he does is managing those 4 towers. But you gave me new insight by telling that is not the focus of the company itself. I guess I have to go brainstorming again and see what I come up with 😀 Nov 18, 2018 at 2:33

Being able to manage a complex seems to be more than to be able to be a handyman. The first contains the ability to get a handyman available as soon as he's needed. Thus a general business logo is more ok than something with a hammer, nails and ladder. That's of course only an opinion. Your father only knows does he want to present himself as a handyman or as a man who among his other tasks also finds an handyman.

I suggest to forget black, if it must be blue. Also I suggest to put the text part and the rest to the same space. Then both can be bigger, but H&F services seem to rule the houses in the back.

  • Thanks for your input, I really appericiate it. I agree with u as well about the nails and such. His primary job is to manage the residence. Nov 18, 2018 at 12:21
