    No contest, but I would like your opinion

    I'm having a logo designed for the whole leaf site and I got a couple of ideas back from the designer. I haven't asked Bob if I could use his leaf design, but if you don't tell him I won't...he probably won't even notice.

    The two artsy green leaves, though beautiful, don't suggest tobacco. Of the other two, I prefer a more subdued background (leaves) with a bolder font. But I'm not crazy about the chosen font, nor about the three pasted, identical outline clip-art leaves. How about the same concept as the upper two, but using a sketch of a full hand of tobacco hanging downward?

    No offense, but, I'd recommend do overs to your designer. That strikes me as a misdrawing of a maple leaf on the upper 2. I like Bobs idea or a sketch of the whole plant. Too bad it can't be as big to show the pic. like the homepage you have now with several hands laid out. I notice your listing fermented cigar wrapper. Is that in stock?

    I agree with Bob on the hands of tobacco hanging downward. Maple leaves on the first two, at least from this distance

    Re: No contest, but I would like your opinion

    I agree with Bob, Barg and indianjoe also. Hands should "hang" not "stand". Does your designer know anything about tobacco? If not a little tutoring might elicit some neat ideas. Perhaps make the "hands" different colors to indicate different stage of ripening or variety. That might be too busy.

    As a separate thought, perhaps three separate hands hang vertically, overlapping or not, each with a letter in it.

    Just thoughts, no offense intended, good luck.

    Speaking of fonts, Johnlee1933, I can barely read your posts, the font size is so small.

    Re: No contest, but I would like your opinion

    I hate to say something critical without offering something constructive (i have no artistic ability) but I don't like any of those pics. Like said above seems like quick clip art mash. I love the one on ftt, maybe keep it for the main site. I don't think it would be out of place to have the same theme on both sites. It would show continuity between both.
