    Hi,

    No, someone else.

    I'll provide a platform where people will be able to auction their stuff with a few unique twists. I'm still surveying the market though but I allready found some interesting painpoints.

    All the best,
    Amro

    Hi Amro,

    I do logo design and branding for companies. You used Fiverr even that's a very bad place to get a logo. I won't talk why because there is no point doing that. I'll try to explain you how to fix your logo the best I can.

    Consistency is very important when you're building a brand. You have 3 types of font styles in your logo. T, U and A are all different from each other. I see you want to make some or all letters special in some way, don't do that. Use the same font and make it unique in some way (not too much). You will have one of a kind logo and it will look professional.

    Get rid of the tagline, you don't need it. If you want to explain your brand don't do it in the logo. Do it in ads, banners, social media content…..basically everywhere else. Logo has to be as simple as possible without losing message. You will have issues with it one day if you keep it ''busy''.

    Logo isn't love on the first sight. Logo is all about time! National Geographic logo was just a yellow rectangle at the first day, but over time it has became THE YELLOW RECTANGLE everyone knows about. The same will be with your logo if you keep it simple.

    Logo isn't a sentence (business), it's the dot at the end (something that give the full package to your business).

    If you want to ask more, please do it.

    One of logos I made, always keep it simple as possible.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply but I'm leaving it like this now. I find it looks good enough for a start and to be honoust I want them to instantly see what the site is about. Visitors leave quickly because of three reasons: Loading speed, not knowing what the site is about, or not interested because of unprofessional look. Offer value in all ways and it will return in my opinion. Maybe later after I have some descent traffic I can alter it a little but for now i'll leave it like this.

    Please explain what you mean? Thanks ;)

    If you want to avoid unprofessional look, Fiverr isnt the right way.

    You can have a banner on your site that will tell visitors whats the site about, dont do it in the logo.

    Hey @Amro,

    With all due respect, treat this thread like a mastermind session...You have to take constructive criticism the same way you take the comments you like about your logo. Isn't that the point of the thread?

    I'd like to share my opinion because logos really have to resonate well with your "brand."

    You mention GOOGLE...Google is a misspelling of a "Googol," which is a math term for 10 to the 100th power. That's a 1 with a hundred zeros behind it. They were sort of clever also in creating all those pages with the O's back in the day...

    For some reason, my entire message was wiped out.

    Honestly, this logo looks great! I would really have to see the whole site to really see if it blends with it, but I like the colors!

    Also, I'm not 100% on this but I think you should add a - (dash) on the "TopUp" part, but I'm not 100% on it so yeah.

    I agree with that.

    Also, (sidenote), what does that CTNNB thing mean?

    Not the best, but logos aren't that important at this stage of your business.

    I'd personally use another service like 48HoursLogo or even look at some premade logos on GraphicRiver.

    I see a lot of talk of logos and hey I do nt need sales I need this pimping boat....you need sales spending all this time on a logo is a waste of time.

    There's a thread here somewhere called what do you need? Take a look.

    I made these mistakes building a logo etc.

    How the favicon of your website will look, you think the tagline will fit? Your logo will fail on many tests and one of them is scalabitly
    Do all professional companies have a logo? Yes.

    If a company dont have a logo that means it’s not professional. I’m the first one who wouldnt buy or use a site that doesnt have built brand 100%.

    “I dont have a budget for a logo” and similar are for small kids. Its all about how hard you really want it.

    Many people say how they dont have a budget while typing all that using iPhone XS Max.

    If its not importan nobody would use it. Big companies pay huge amounts of many for logo designs, why should they spend so much money on something thats not important?

    Hi,

    Please explain what you mean?

    I will do everything as properly as I can. I'm not in a rush. Basically administration is also not important right?

    Maybe I ask what your revenue/profit is on a daily basis if you only focus on sales. I would NEVER buy something from a amateur website or something. Door to door sellers without an ID. You need to be a hell of a salesmen if I would sign some tv contract with you.

    No hard feelings since I understand that it's meant well.

    All the best,
    Amro

    In my opinion, your logo is great but honestly keep it simple. it's going to be hard in the future to translate it into different places if it has that much going on. you might have to put it on billboards, small icons, etc. some might not even have color. i'd say go with what @Logomet said and keep a simple but recognizable logo. the logo i designed for my marketing company was made in about 5 minutes with photoshop. it's just 1 letter but it still has a lot of meaning behind it.

    Don't worry about the logo, just worry about enforcing the brand through social media, your work, etc. the logo isn't something you should stress on that much.

    also if you want to outsource the work for your logo, try to find dedicated graphic designers that are good with making simple logos. Fiverr doesn't sit right with me for logo designs as it seems the people there are just following the commands of the people they work for, they might be skilled, but they do whatever you want, not whatever they know works. if you get what i mean.

    Bottom line is....if you want a good logo you have to invest a solid amount of money and hire a good designer.

    If you go on Fiverr and similar site, you will get what you pay for.

    You are looking for a professional work. Do you really think professionals work for $5?

    Do you know that Adobe Illustrator costs $55 a month? Designers have to pay taxes, healthcare, PayPal fees, currency exchange and so on.

    Fiverr is 95% scam and really bad work made by 14 year olds. Logo development takes time. The only why you can sell it for $5 is to steal design or deliver bad and unprofessional work.

    The colors are really nice and the font is good too. I wouldn't change the ''U'' to be under the roof of the T and make the right side of the ''U'' into an arrow. That would make it too crowded. Keep it simple indeed. Or make the A more simple and then you can add other things to the U.

    IMO

    Edit: just saw the updated version on the second page. Looks much better!

    Hi,

    Thank you @LPPC for the kind feedback. Something like this:

    T and U stands for one word, thts why you put it in the same color. Why did you put ut in different font?

    Take a look at upper corners of U and A. U has sharp corners and A has slighty rounded corners.

    TUA is way too big comparing to the name text. TUA is way too bold comparing to the name text.

    Your design consistency is all over the place.

    THE FIX:

    Maku T in the same font as U. Because T and U will have sharp corners, make them in A too.

    Make logo text more bold and size down TUA to be tall as 2x NAME TEXT.

    The space between TUA and NAME TEXT should be 0.5x of NAME TEXT size.

    By the way, why do you need background. Logo has to be delivered without background.

    Don't like the T, doesn't jive with the rest. The earlier one gives me a military feel, the latter one seems out of place, like a different font.

    Hi @MJ DeMarco,

    Thanks for the feedback. I allready accepted the design how it was so i'll reevaluate it in a few months om maybe slightly change it along the way but now I need to move on to the next tasks at hand. :)

    All the best,
