I have a client who wants to redo his website logo redone.

He don't want to use or incorporate cliches like such as the magnifying glass and buildings. He wants a "pear" to be his logo/branding to represent his business. It is the same concept as Apple, as apple is and IT company but it uses an Apple to as a logo. As of now he is using a real pear image, I was thinking it can be modified into a fine-art like "Apple" company but with original and creative style.

I want your advise that how should I modify this logo, as well as which fonts would suit with the new logo.

Thanks in advance.

    Why would you want to steer away from cliches? I think a magnifying glass in the shape of a pear would be great. Easy, clean, recognisable. Isn't that what a logo should be? Anyway, not much of an answer but I would go more to the iconic logo side than an image like this.

  • I am absolutely agree with you Jane, and I made couple of logo based on this concept and tried to understand my client, but he don't want to understand it. Commented Aug 30, 2016 at 8:27

    This is much too broad of a question. You should come back to us with some examples of what you're working on, following these guidelines and then maybe we can help you more.

It's funny that i found the "same" logo on google images with the search "pear from letters logo"....

enter image description here

In my opinion, a logo that is made from the words that your client want in a shape of a pear will be an interesting approach on that.

Of course, it should not look playful as this example. It needs to be more serious.

  • Yes I found the exactly the same logo in google image search. I like the idea but the question is, how to make it look serious? Commented Aug 30, 2016 at 8:56

Definitely do not use real imagery. What dimshik found is cool, but because it seems like a pretty serious company I would explore having a pear as an icon and the wordmark separate. In terms of fonts, if you still plan on manipulating the wordmark into a pear shape, I would try a tall sans serif like Oswald or something to downplay the cutesiness of a pear wordmark.
