love the idea. I wonder what it would look like if you extend the carrots out to be the full thing? too much maybe? feels like it's missing something is all...

yeah, yeah I see what you're getting at...%26 for a large part I don't disagree...But they were very stubborn, %26 they they wanted something quick, which led us to this...they were great guys but they didn't know much about design at all...so it had to be obvious...

This is perfect the way it is. Why does it seem like everyone always needs the whole story completely spelled out? The fact that the carrots are implied is what's great about the design. Don't change a thing.

I agree with leighton. You've captured an interesting effect the way it is. The carrots appear to be growing out of the ground. The way you purposely nudged the 'O's down and cut them the way you did is very clever IMO. The only thing I might have done differently is used just one of the carrots within the logo (maybe only on the word Carrots). But even so, it's a neat concept.

Just one comment. What if you remove the one Carrot in the name %22Carrots%22. I think it might be fun to see the carrots as you read the name and when you get to the word %22Carrots%22 it is normal... OR even a progression of growth from left to right with the carrot coming up more as you read across. Just a thought. Love it though.

I appreciate the thought Werthless :) but this is a fairly old job that has long since been completed, so I've simply placed it on the pond for nostalgic purposes :)

Congratulations young man! I like it, but I think that Kevin's suggestion of using just one 'carrot' would have been good... the concept is great though.

i don't disagree with leighton's point at all. while i understand why it was done, the cut off o's still bug the crap out of me. i'm sure it's just me. so don't listen to me %3B)

I would prefer it with just one carrot, but it's still a nice concept.

It's well thought. Don't change a thing! The fact that the carrots are half buried makes the 3 %22o%22 really fun.

Great work - and love the fact that you used a classic font like Gill Sans. The best ideas are usually the simple ones.
