playing around for a label for my wife's new venture...honey bee's.*she wants to sell the honey at farmer's markets. Just toying around at this point. Thoughts?

this is sexy. The dot on the 'i' has too much detail, and i think that is just the tiny little dot it creates in the middle of it. It's definitely well on its way. I think there is an inconsistency in line weight right now, as in some letters have wonderful thick and thin weights, while some are fat and blobby. i would work on (in order): W - middle and intro ear are too fat. l - fat. d - fat. H - love this letter except the far left part has a weird little fat nub. e - bottom of it is fat. y - something about that bottom loop is a little off. needs some weight variation. *Overall love where this is going! That second H is gorgeous! Seriously can't wait to see this completed!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. still some kinks to work out, but it felt like it was heading in the right direction.*Sean, Alen, not sure how you found out this info from my wife... curious! LOL good stuff guys, my wife (Janea) will have a chuckle over the comments. (she has a different name for that, but can't tell ya!) (:

thanks Simon. i sort of like the looser ink brush type myself.*UPDATED: did some minor tweaking on the thicker lines and changed out the dot on the %22i%22. nothing major for now. still like the real loose look and feel. (and NO Alen and Sean I'm not talking about my wife,) (:

i think 'Honey' is perfect. 'Haven' is aaalmost there with the exception of the 'e' and maybe a touch of love to the tail on the 'n'. in 'Wild', the W still feels heavy. Maybe try a completely different approach with it where the outside parts of the W curve outward instead of inwards so that it matches the feel of the two 'H's below? The right side of that 'l' needs some love, too. Hope this helps! Lookin great!

UPDATED: took the %22WILD%22 form my second concept and placed it on this version. I think it has better balance. Thanks for the comments on both concepts, everyone.

When are you going to be featured here?*My wife wants to keep bees as well, so you will probably see a honey label uploaded from me in the future.:)

i also don't understand why Mike not featured yet, can anybody tell? Btw, sweet letters:)

Mikeymike May. 20 '11

Good luck with the bee's when you get them. they are actually pretty cool to watch work. Its fun, but don't mention it to my wife, I pretend I only want the honey.*And thanks Jerron and Deividas, for your feature support, but there is a lot of talent here so I can see why I'm not in there. no worries. *Cheers and have a great weekend.*Oh and Jerron can't wait to see your honey label design, probably blow mine off the shelves. (:

UPDATED: I have started to really smooth out the type more, still working on it though. But thought I would show the progress. thanks, hope you like the improvement. (You can see how rough to first type was on my V-2.)

This logo appears very cute and compact to me - I think that it would make a great honey label logo! As a newbie, I am inspired by the mixture of fun and professionalism in this logo... beautiful work! Cannot WAIT to see it complete, although if you declared it %22finished%22 now, I would be just as impressed! :)
