I have been exploring logos and what gets my attention. I have posted a few results below in attached files. The common thread among the logos I liked is that they all evoked an emotion or feeling. I have added what feeling each evoked next to the image. So, that's what I am looking for, a logo that will evoke feeling. For my business the obvious feelings are joy, happiness, festive, mirth, amused, and excited. I think when a logo evokes feeling, it becomes more memorable. That would be my goal for anyone submitting a logo, evoke feeling through the design. Appreciation of beauty is a feeling, amazement at magical trails is a feeling. Many entries have feeling, I don't want you to think they all have to be redone. I just want to discourage new entries from submitting text with a couple of pixels, and that's it. That doesn't evoke any feeling. I hope that clarifies why I added this. Although the logos below are all different, they do make you feel something.
Please no cats or owls or other animals. Want to see pixies, and fairies. Would like the name to be readable at a distance, so the character should not overwhelm the name. Needs to be easy to understand, something that catches your eye and is memorable, and can be understood easily. Looking for fun, whimsical, colorful, easy to read, and memorable. No cameras or camera lenses please. I would like to see PIXIES, and elegant fairies. I have gotten a bit of feedback that the image needs to directly relate to our name "Pixel Dust", which comes from Pixie Dust. So magic, pixies, fairies, etc. Thank you!
