My feedback on the first round of logo designs:
I think they are all nice - pro, stylish, fun.
1. Looks a bit like a chicken (don't know why). Overall shape looks a
bit like heart too, which is weird. I love the quote feet. Very
friendly-looking. Solid, but not my favourite.
2. Clever. Probably too clever - the abstract bird head is more
distinguishable separate from the word. Love the quotes as P, D, and G
3. Classic, classy, meaningful (good clear speech bubble). If anything,
a bit too stately and classy looking. Probably my favourite.
I showed the logos around to the team at silverorange and the reaction
was surprisingly negative. Not much in concrete feedback - they just
didn't seem to like them.
That said, most of the criticism seemed to focus around the bird looking
like other types of birds (turkeys, chickens, swans, etc.). I can see
that a bit too.
People liked the lettering in the name 'pidgin' from proposal #2, with
the P, D, and G as quotes, but found the bird too abstract (but my wife
thought that was awesome).
In general #3 was the favourite. Some commented that they liked the
early variation of #3 when it was still inside a separate speech bubble.
I'd like to see the lettering from #2 carried over - and maybe some
variations to #3 to make it look more soft/friendly/more-like-a-pigeon
(however you do that... I don't know).
In general, I like what I see (a lot), but the feedback others gave me
