    My first Dribbble! Thanks to Patrick Haney for drafting me!

    Logo design for a new company that installs wood fences.

    Thanks guys! Anyone see the badge shape? The client had mentioned wanting to communicate security so I tried to incorporate it as a subtle second read since it's not the primary focus of the business. Not sure I'll stick with the ribbon ends, I have a design that uses a blade of grass as the ribbon that might work as well. Thoughts?

    Yes I got the badge, but I didn't really think of security when I saw it. Looking good so far!

    Great job Janet. Visually it's really beautiful. As Justin mentioned, the logo and name may not convey exactly what Yardguard does as well as it needs to. Maybe some kind of tagline or themeline would help.

    One thing that bothers me is that the pixel whitespace below the "yard guard" label is thinner than the whitespace above the label?

    Thank you all, this is great feedback!!

    @Chase, a tagline is in the works and hopefully I can get them to play nicely with each other. ;) Maybe extending the right side of the ribbon and placing it inside?

    @Dan, yeah not sure I want it to read as a pocket. May have to re-evaluate the lines within the green shape. :)

    @Davy, yes I need to fix that. It should be the same size. Thx!

    I really like this Janet, and welcome to Dribbble. I saw the security reference right away, and yet I think it's subtle enough that it works as a logo.

    Also, what Davy mentioned about the whitespace above/below the Yard Guard banner.

    Hi, Janet.

    I saw the badge right away too.

    What if the banner & type were skewed so as to be upright like the picket fence?

    Hi Tiffany,

    I think I know what you mean.... straighten the banner back to a straight horizontal and then skew the front part of the banner and type into an arch? I had a variation like that with a different typeface and it felt a little girly to me so I didn't pursue it further. The diagonal felt more dynamic to me. I will give it a try with this typeface though! Thx!

  16. Not a new design, just trying to clarify a thought I had about Janet's new logo for Yard Guard.

    Hi. No, not an arch. I really like the angle of the banner, I just wonder if skewed might be more forceful. Like the image above. And I used Tungsten because I don't have the typeface you are using only for visual, not me trying to change the typeface. :)

  18. My client chose the identity on the right, though I preferred the left design. It's been a while, but thanks to all who initially gave feedback!
