He sent version 1 to me and it was 85% what I wanted.. I put in requested a few changes and a few minutes later he sent me version 2, it was closer but the glasses were still a bit off so I sent him a picture of glasses that I had in mind. Again only a few minutes later he sent me version 3 and the glasses looked great but I did ask if he could change the color from red to green as that's my favorite. Version 4 was sent and I realized that the green he used made it look like a Starbuck's logo. So I asked if he could make it a different color green.. maybe more olive color. Then I got version 5 and that was it. Both the simple logo and the, what I call, circle logo looked fantastic.
I put it out there for friends to check out and give me their thoughts. Most were positive and most liked the "simple" logo better. I got a lot of comments about the green circle logo looking like Starbuck's still. I asked him to go back to his original idea of red. He also made me white ones as well as a different B&@ with more white then black. And someone suggested to color the glasses on the simple logo so I asked him to make one in red and green...
So in a matter of an few hours I had nine fantastic logos for my company. I have plenty to choose from. I want to publicly (well in my blog) thank Matt for doing these for me. He's a professional artist and didn't charge me for his services. He did it out of the kindness of his heart... thanks buddy I love them.
Next step is to apply for a business license.
Later in the day my buddy Chris came online and we jumped on Lord of the Rings Online and went questing for a few hours. He's a busy guys so it's nice when we can slip away into Middle Earth and have some fun.
