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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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...

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!

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!!

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.

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.

# 3 is just perfect!

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

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.

Blogger 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

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

3, 8 and 9 get my vote!

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!

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