Description: Final logo version for the Vietnamese coffee maker. We decided to pull out the tradition part of the vision: wooden cart carry bags of the coffee after the harvest, it is a symbol of natural, simple, people, country side and more. Logo is featured in a few books on logo design.

I like it. Love the cart and type. Not sure you need the 'horns' on the B though. Might be too much and more distracting than readily identifiable.

Thanks Darrel! It's still WIP, client loves that detail (makes the wordmark detachable again) but the horns might fall off in the final phase, we'll see! :)

I like the cart. I think you should simplify the text so the cart takes center stage. Right now your text competes with it. I really don't like the overly simplistic font used for the bottom line of text.

what about a 2 wheeled cart being pulled by a buffalo? i kind of agree with darrel on the little horn on the B. Like all the concepts Alen.

I'm with Trish. Love the cart. You did a great job there. But the type could be toned down some. Perhaps more of a %22traditional%22 font style with less weight would be a better fit. Either way, nice job Alen!

Thanks a lot for all the comments. This is the 3rd concept of the logo I posted but there are 3 more I didn't and so far client loves the typography the most. Since it's going to be used detached a lot the B with the horn/leaf seemed like a nice touch to him. IMO, that detail extracted out of the wordmark could work as a very nice mark itself. Still waiting on the full impressions on this one, if it was up to me, the first concept was really the best and most original one, which you all confirmed with nice amount of feedback and votes. You know how it goes my friends... Thanks once again! :)
