How BlueHeron started their logo design journey

Company name

Heron Ridge Landscaping

Overview

We are a landscaping company that has been in the community for years under another (boring) name. Looking to change things up and become fresh and new with our favourite theme: The Blue Heron.

We need a really cool looking blue heron (in a steel blue colour) that can be printed both in colour and black and white and still look good. Also need to put the little guy on the side of our trucks and, possibly, shirts.

Colour scheme should be a nice steel blue colour along with green and white. Like the looks of CURVES and shadowing. Might even be nice to see the heron placed within a curving line or circle. Would also probably like to see the name printed not in all one colour. Maybe Blue for "Heron" and green for "Ridge"...maybe even two different fonts.

We are a small company that our customers rely on for trustworthy/personal service. We are clean and professional. No bare chests with beer guts hanging out or standing around smoking on the customer's property! That is the opposite of what we are. We want the new logo to symbolize the clean, professional, friendly, detail-oriented service we provide. The "Heron" is a bird we see a lot around here and everyone loves them! See them a lot as garden statuary. The "Ridge" is for the escarpment we work around.

So, "Heron Ridge Landscaping".

Good Luck!!

Any Questions? Don't hesitate to ask. We will be checking in OFTEN! :)

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our customers are upper-middle class to upper-class. These are people who can afford top-of-the-line property maintenance and, generally, it is the woman of the house who does the hiring. So, we are appealing largely to women ages 35 and up. However, we don't want anything too "girlie". The heron should be beautiful and sleek...not cute. Above all, the look must be clean and professional, sleek but not too flashy.

Our customers hire us for year-round property maintenance, landscape design, snow-plowing, gardening, etc. We are in Canada so we have (and cover all) four seasons.

Requirements

Name: "Heron Ridge Landscaping"

"Heron Ridge" should be set-off from "Landscaping"...
in that "Heron Ridge" should stand out, but "Landscaping" can be more plain and printed below.

Theme: A Blue Heron

We want to see a blue heron in a nice steal-blue colour that will look equally as good printed in black and white. It will need to be simple enough to be printed on business cards and on the side of our trucks and, possibly, shirts. Elegant and Sleek, NOT CUTE.

Colours: Steal Blue (a "pretty" steal blue...not "muddy") and a co-ordinating green...and, of course, white.

Design Details: Hubby loves curves and shadows. Would like to see the Heron inside a curve or even a circle. My business "Pea Tree Photography" (design by KhingKhing) got a great logo here {you should be able to find that winning design for "Norma-ann" without too much trouble if you wanted to} and we both love the curves and the the writing that incorporates the theme...although that particular font may be a bit too "girlie" for this project. But, we did LOVE KhingKhing's work and how he used curves and a great font which used the theme.

Any other questions, please just ask. I will be checking in on this project OFTEN.

Thanks!
