What do you think of this for my site:
FYI, the text is in French.
very nice.. I like it.. I can see it as a nice little icon on your page and the customers would know you stand behind your products/services.
Thanks JR : O-Yeah:
But the rest of the bunch, come on, 25 views so far and only one comment.
What do you all think about the orbs color combo? What other combos would you suggest ?
Just in case you weren't aware, that hand gesture means several different things depending on the country, so if you cater to international customers... ;) I'll leave it up to your imagination as to what it's been known to represent.
I do like the general design though.
I am curious to know what that gesture means in different countries!
As far as the logo, it does stand out and easy to identify. It can take all day to come up with a certain color. You will know what colors not to mix. Some will just please the eye. I would however, drop the soft glow around the logo. It will show up stronger and in your face more. Soft glows don't work much any more for logos. Also maybe drop the blue orb and just keep it a solid blue?
In my country, it means either "a-okay" or "really good".
I just remember this from a class in cultural differences.
As far as I know in France (*) zero is with all fingers closed in the O shape, and when the other fingers are raised it means OK.
(*)=As you can see in my description below my nickname I live near France and obviously we share not only the same language but the same culture as well.
Yes, I had noticed that. :)
I guess my point was just to be careful when using gestures in a logo, as the meaning that you intended to convey may be interpreted differently by folks in other regions...
Thanks for your concern Joe. : O-Yeah:
I just posted a new thread on a French forum I visit sometimes. Not related to design, but I'll see what they say about this.
wow! ya learn something new everyday! I had no idea about the hand gesture.
