Texas Olive grower. wants something with the feel of Texas, but with some class.
Would love some feed back. thanks.
Work in progress
Very cool, Mike. Love the star/pimento idea but there might be a perspective and shading thing there that you might work out. The pimento seems detached. I know it's a WIP, my 2 cents. Neat mark and idea.
it looks realy good, very well executed..But i am starting to feel that i am becoming not a fan of theese rounded, old feel logos, because recently appeared them too much and they are comming:) this is just my opinion, but not looking to that this one looks great!:)
Hey, Sean, I hear yeah on the perspective. still needs some work. Just flushing out some ideas for now. thanks, bud.*Deividas, agree with a lot of old school seal, crest approaches lately. But I thought it fit here because the intent was also to use as a bottle label. Thanks for the nice comment. cheers.
Thanks for the floats everyone.
right now the star looks as though it's sitting on top of the olive... anyway to create it so that is has a %22attempting to pop out%22 look.. so coming out from within?.. so the star shape is cut on the olive.. but the pimento is extruding?
I don't know if that made any sense... **http://www.olivesdirect-trade.co.uk/images/pimento.jpg
Yeah, I see what you mean, and I am working on that very thing along with the perspective. (which needs work also.)Thanks for the comment. I'll re-post as i think I am getting closer.
UPDATED. Straighten out the olive and tried to give the pimento more of feel of being inside the olive itself. getting closer?
Much better like this Mikey!
Yah nailed it Mikey! Bomb! Maybe more olive-ish color for the enclosure (not it's maybe more army-ish) but pure greatness-ish all around-ish!

Thanks, Joe.*Alen, yeah I may look at that. I just thought the background colors made the olive stick out more. ,But I'll take a closer look. Thanks guys.
awesome improvement! this is much better...
Wow yeah... very nice... Maybe you could dull out the olive slightly to match the encloser rather than the other way?... the enclosure colour is very appealing... or maybe you can tell us all to get stuffed now... either way, good stuff.
There you go. Makes much more sense having the olive centered given the symmetrical design. Nice job, Mikey.
Agree with Nido, the olive is a bit bright.
Alen, Sean, Nido thanks for all the suggestions. Still toying with all. Thanks big time though.
Looks good, ship it.
:) thanks, Jerron.
Thanks for the comment, Jurcek.
Thanks, 13mu. yeah I think its getting closer, with a little help from my friends. :)
Brilliantly simple idea. You nailed the %22texas feel but with class%22. Very clever.
thanks for the nice comments, Agencija and Mr. Boom. (aka. Glen) much appreciated.
Awesome stuff, Mikey..
much better now
Olive Oil aye...This is slick work :)
Didn't see the previous version, but this is great

I don't care for olives much, but this is quite tasty. All the details really pull this logo together.
Dig the overall feel of the logo! Awesome stuff!
Mikey... you rocked :)
%5Eyou rocked indeed%3B) sweet stuff buddy!
Wow Mike, I've seen your progress on this one and I must admit it was a joy to watch, now it's perfect.
Yeah, I keep coming back to look at it, it's so tight and complete now after seeing it evolve. Really nailed it, love the detailing and construction of it. Really nice mark, Mike.
Great idea with the star/pimento!
wow. overwhelmed on the nice compliments. Thanks to everyone for the kind words of encouragement. Really appreciate it. cheers.
Nicely done! Love the star shape in the olive - clever as hell.
Much better Mikey, looks Great Hope they like it.
Great execution and cute idea, but 'olive oil' olives have pimentos....
Thanks, Mike. Yeah they are looking seriously at it, We'll see.*tdf, interesting you bring that up. the client is also a bit concerned on the pimento, and the edible olive look and feel. They do only sell the olive oil, but they wanted to make sure people knew their olives were grown in Texas. I thought the star pimento would give that instant Texas connection for the consumer. And because this was going to be on the actual olive oil container, it worked as a strong Texas olive icon for their product. But maybe it could be misleading. But as a iconic, consumer driven symbol I thought it worked just fine. love to hear anyone's thoughts.
Love this design. The use of the star within the olive is perfect.
I agree that the olive is excellent.
thanks Ohio State. :)
