I started blogging first on 'Rodinhood.com'.
Rodinhood is inspired from Rodin - who sculpted 'The Thinker' and Robin Hood who 'got things done'. Hence Thinking+Doing = Rodinhood.
This is the logo of Rodinhood.com as designed by a USA logo company called 'Logobee'.
A year later, I started 'Therodinhoods.com' and the site even since has never had a logo.
The challenge was how to create 'plurality' in the logo, given that therodinhoods.com is a 'social networking site for enterprising people'
I explained this challenge to logobee, and they just come back with these logo's.
Can you please help all of us as community members, choose the logo / suggest changes to these logos above and or / mix and match ideas etc?
Its important that the Logo has a Unisex appeal, for sure!
Please just comment below!
I like the second one - it conveys something. Rest are a bit pompous
I will vote for the main logo in the middle of the post. Fits with Thinker + straight shooter mentality. This has power and substance in it and has punch.
I like no. 3 too, one side can be a figurine of female sitting and thinking and the other side can be a male. And they are shooting for the stars.
Taking up your cue from the Unisex appeal and my personal choice it would be logo no 4 the lightbulb but can we suggest lightening instead of arrows?
#7 is relatively more appealing, the colours and font make it all seem more inviting to me. I'd ask the creative team to send work on options taking away the shield in #7 and adding a circle around the thinker and doer imagery... either green bordered-white fill circle or green-fill as is with the shield. I like what a circle depicts - wholeness, continuity, inclusiveness.
I feel all the logos and the styles look a bit dated, the options have a lot of components and hence would not garner greater recall. Once can use a wide array of bright colors.
Also think from a usage perspective, how would any of these look on your visiting card, your office stationary, your web page. Should you decide to have an app can the logo suffice as the app icon. Also think about ease to adapt in multiple mediums.
I think simplicity is the key, let it be in one or two colors. Take a look at modern logos adapted by HubSpot, Kissmetrics.
No. 6 .. An enterprising person cannot think of his business going in any other direction.
I Vote for the Bulb. All the others are good as well, but we need to keep it simple, and not too stuffy. And hence, I vote for No. 4 - The Bulb.
