Awesome...what if you slightly shorten the middle picket to really sell the W?

penflare Oct. 18 '09

yes agree what fabian and mike said, if you shorten it will be more of a w and the brushs do need to be longer**but great concept!

very nice concept, the grass is conveying to the bristles of the brush too*

Chad Sanderson Oct. 18 '09

Thank you everyone! I went with the majority opinion and lowered the middle fence post to better make the 'w' shape, and made the bristles more pronounced. Still refining, but thanks so much for the help so far.

The bristles could be taller to feel proportionate to real brushes. All you need to do is drop the handles down a bit.

I think the fence should be all the same height and the paint brushes slightly different height of stroke (middle one) and look a little more like brushes than grass?

brandsimplicity Oct. 18 '09

Coming along nicely! I personal like Mikes idea of making the grass more brush like, maybe adding a tad more brush height?

Thanks so much for the feedback everyone, and I'm working on modifying it more as we speak. And the advice is fantastic. You guys are awesome.**And @absoludicrous: Well, they're saved at 72 dpi. But that's just what the site regulations are, I thought. I could be wrong though. But thank you for the look!

Made the grass resemble a brush more and extended the height slightly. The client really liked this concept (For once!), so I'll start working on the type to go with it. Thanks again everyone, for the floats and the advice.

Ah, I see. That's interesting, because they are definitely saved at 100. Unless I was too hasty. Or something.

Slight, and unfortunate update. After a few emails back and forth with the client, they told me quite suddenly they had decided to go with another designer because their wives didn't like the design. But thanks for all the advice in development guys. On to the next project, I suppose.

Sorry to hear that, Chad. Comes with the territory, I suppose. Their loss.

This will not be the first time a good solution is rejected Chad, one thing you can learn from all this... Design for the wives :)

Thank you for the kind comments everyone. It was disappointing, but I'll hold on to it on the half odd chance something similar ever arises.

Chad, you are young, and have a great future ahead, I'd say reuse it and sell it well, it's a great logo and you'll come up with more I'm sure.

Thanks for your support. The matter of making something which is already out there, very similar, always scares me. But I guess it's something we all have to deal with :) Great job on your gallery!

Chad Sanderson Nov. 30 '09

That's very true. But I think as long as we remain humble and understand we probably were not the first ones to do anything, that makes it a lot easier to move on. And thank you!

Great job. I love the grass/paint brush/wet paint. I didn't see a %22W%22 right away, but once you mentioned it, it becomes clear.

How could the client not go for this, it's awesome! As said above, their loss!

Very much appreciated guys! Yeah, I was a little off-put by that decision too. I would throw a brick through their window in retaliation, but I'm pretty sure they operate from a garden shed. (Violence is never good anyway.)
