So tell me what you want...

Last week I was lucky enough to call in a family favor and get some help in creating a custom logo that I can use on my website and on my business cards.

Like a typical woman I changed my mind from my original color combo of red/aqua and decided to go a different route with something that felt more like me and would be stylish yet timeless. With the current color combo in my mind and some inspiration from the web I reached out to Nina! She is a very stylish, creative, woman that hails from San Francisco and is a free-lance graphic designer! I felt bad bugging family, but who else is around to bug and due to my limited budget I decided to send an email her way anyway. Nina was more than happy to help me out. After a couple of emails back and forth she sent me 10 fabulous options! Now the only problem is that I can't figure out which one to use. It's like asking a mother, which child is her favorite. I can't decided.

Here is where you all come in. Since part of this blog is my accounts of starting this business of mine I figured whoelse is better equiped to help me with this decision than my loyal readers/friends.

So, in the profound words of the Spice Girls, "Tell me what you want, what you really really want."

Leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite! Which card screams, "Wow this girl has style and I want her to re-do my room!"

If you never commented before now is the time to do so. I need all the opinions I can get.

Help me out!!!!

I like 2, 3, and 10 best with #3 being my favorite. They all look great!

Erin said...

Um...they're all gorgeous!? Tough decision...I think I like #3, and 6 because the background doesn't detract from your business name, yet still has style.

Haven and Home said...

Wow, those look great, you cannot go wrong. My favorites were #3 and #10. I need to get a graphic designer ASAP. Can't wait to see what you decide!

Sarah's Fab Day said...

I'm voting for option #2. Classic palette.

Courtney said...

WOW! She really did one heck of a job. They look awesome.

My favorites (in no order) are: 3, 4, 5, and 10. Can't wait to see the end results!

Beautiful Living said...

I like the background in no 6 and the box with your company info in no 8 :)

They all look great though, you can't go wrong!

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

My vote's for 3 - just seems classic...

a pretty pill said...

woah. these are all unbelievably amazing. i would be thrilled to have any of them. personally, i am always drawn to something with more color; therefore, i like #1, 7, and 8 the best.

ann ominous said...

i think i like 9 the best because it's really easy to read and the background provides a nice contrast that isn't too distracting from the main focus. I like the layering in that the brown is in the back and is the Title font.

The Cherry Blog said...

I think they all look good - but if one stood out more I'd have to say no. 8 . it seemed to have a funky retro feel to it that appealed to me personally. I hope you get on ok in your final decision! Good luck! x

K said...

Ok, I vote #9. It's pretty, but your eye (well, at least MY eye) was drawn the the name and information, so that wasn't lost in the design.
But they are all nice.

Pigtown-Design said...

10. I think that the rest are busy. Great colours thought!

Kwana said...

Oh this is so hard. I wish you had started with your top 3. I like so many. But I'm just going to go out on a limb and say number 5. Love it. You can't go wrong with which ever you pick.

Robin said...

#2, hands down. There are all so lovely though!!

iomoi has some great ready to go calling cards if you want to take a look.

also, ladies, my boyfriend is a graphic designer ready for the pimping out. he's gearing up to make my business cards and new logo for my blog and i'm sure he would love nothing more than a gaggle of girls interested in is freelancing talent :)

3,4 and 10

Kristen said...

At first I liked # 9 then changed my mind to #2 then read the comments.... I could change my mind again!
I do like the chocolate brown. Best of luck.

LindsB said...

Hey there!! How exciting to have another step in the process to be completed! I love love LOVE #10, with #2 & #3 coming in second.

Are you going to tell us all which one you pick?

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the help and opinions. Keep them coming.

I still don't know which one I'm picking. I want to see if I get anymore advice and then I will make my decision and post the winner.

I was leaning towards 8, 10.

hmm decisions...

Carrie said...

My votes are for 3, 6 and 10.

Sweet Nothings said...

TWO or Ten!!

Blueprint Bliss said...

I love #3. Can't wait to see what you pick! They are all great!

niartist said...

Love your post name: High-Heeled Foot in the Door - lovely! I say #2. It's chic, and sophisticated, and I love the color combination. It's delicate and bold all at the same time, and I say go for it! Love the blog, thanks for stopping by - I'll be back often, and of course, you're welcome anytime!

The Steel Magnolia House said...

Those are all totally fab, and if I only had your business card to go by, I'd assume you have great style! I love 1,4,5,10. 10 being my favorite. Hands down. Love your blog!!

Lauren said...

WOW. All so amazing. I'm really late for this vote!! But I vote for #2. I know how you feel about orange & I think the card is really fun & stylish yet still simple & I think that goes with effortless style. They're all beautiful but this one feels the most "effortless" to me.
xoxo

Karen said...

haha, you were looking for help to make a decision?! they're so great, we all disagree! I vote for #2. I like that it's mostly neutral (classic) with a punch of orange--the 'in' color for 2009!

Can't wait to see what you decide.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

# 3 is just perfect!

kelleyp said...

#3 is my number one choice with #10 a close second.
sweet options!

Typhoid Ashley said...

I love #7 but your name on orange kind of blends with all the other orange. #9 is so beautiful! I think that's my fave.

benson said...

okay...if I tell you this it will cross this one off of your list...but I have to tell you that #9's background is starting to remind me of those eyeballs on the new Geico commercials..sorry if that was a fave. I think #3 and #10 are my favorites

amber {daisy chain} said...

I like 8 & 9 - love all your choices, I agree it is SO hard to choose for yourself!

Selena said...

3, 8 and 9 get my vote!

Ana said...

I plan to be a 'loyal reader'...can I still throw in my two cents?

If so, I love 5 and 8. The colors and the graphic nature of the design are phenomenal.

Good luck choosing!

My Notting Hill said...

I like #2 and #7 but using the box w/your name from #8. What a great start for your business.
