really cool Siah.

Thanks Mike. Client wasn't opted for one of my other concepts though. I'll have to share that one once everything is finalized.

logomotive said on Dec. 08 '09

well if it beats this one it must be good.

^ it doesnt,...

doesnt the client always pick the wrong one?

siah-design said on Dec. 08 '09

David, that's true ^. While I really liked the concept I knew the other concept would match his brand need more appropriately. And sometimes the best logo/face for the brand won't be really clever or win any awards... And that's fine.

Thanks Mads :)

i think it's a bright idea...

logomotive said on Dec. 10 '09

I disagree with your clients Josh, sorry just do. This is brilliant!! I asked my kids what they see (of course they are logo gurus now) they said "light bulb and water." Client has a problem or leaking facet or wants a plumber they will remember this mark and name. This is a Laymens logo, in other words EVERYONE will understand it and remember it, and that to me makes this bullet proof logo.

Mike, thanks for your thoughts.

I like to ask young minds what they see in my logos, too. A great way to test how the concept comes through. :)

The client's main reason for not going with this concept was because he didn't want the light bulb. Plus he liked the other concept more because he felt it was a more conservative and brandable.

That being said, would love to use this logo in the future. It is memorable and may fit another plumber's brand more appropriately. But I kinda doubt I'll have another "smart plumbing" project anytime soon. :)

Yeah clever logo, but you definitely see the light bulb first and foremost which I think is a problem. First impressions are everything and I think for plumbing AND electric, this is brilliant, but for plumbing it misses a mark.

I gotta agree with David and Jared. First impressions are everything and the first thing you see is a light bulb.

OcularInk said on Dec. 11 '09

Still, a great concept Josiah.

siah-design said on Dec. 11 '09

^ Yea, that's the reason we went with the other monogram concept. When their van with the signage drives by you and you only see it for a second it's beneficial for it to be "gettable".
