@JPB +1 mate.
Also should be presented in gray scale or black and white and to show every detail in any size so it is recognizable in a business card or a poster.

Basic principles of a successful logo.

logo needs to be less detail. =) that can be applied in different medium like embroidery, small prints, and printers that requires limited colors. =)

@sw_macker : wow! very nice work of art mate! =) Its like a real painting ..
I'm just wondering if it's in vector or not ?

To everyone: the designs by @thexigner and @omARTist are the direction I want to go.

Crosscut saw blades are not round - I do not want a round theme.

Can this be done: How about the scenes AND colors as in #41 or #51 or #59 or #64 be done ON A CROSSCUT SAW BLADE?

Also, I want to remove the horse and wagon, and instead include the building from file upload _6.jpg.

I think that's okay if on printing or web design project , it means the graphic used only for mock up CH should buy it if they want to use that image, but I don't think so on logo project.

it's an exact trace 100%!
when you submit the design you should notice "My Entry does not use stock photos" next with a tiny question mark says "Stock photos cannot be used in logo design contests under any circumstance. Any designs found to violate this will be removed and their owners may face suspension."
nothing personal here but I'm sure he/she's ready for this :)

Please remove the "windmill" in the background - it is incongruent with the American logging past history - and add draft animal(s)? such as mule and wagon? Go here to this link for EXCELLENT ideas:

Thank you all very much for your entries and diligent efforts.

#41 by @thexigner is fantastic and is the direction I want to go, but please note: crosscut saw blades are not round - I do not want a round theme.

Please add tree(s). Try colors as shown in the uploaded files, monochromatic might be good also.

Feb 14, 2013 6:02:10 AM

@jack Anderson hi sir, kindly check entry #22 , #24 , #26 , I hope you like it, thanks

#19 @sw_macker - great use of the two handed crosscut saw. It doesn't work for me to mix the letters into the graphic though.

Feb 13, 2013 7:26:27 PM

I've uploaded multiple image ideas - I'm not saying to slavishly copy them - they are just looks and ideas that I like.

Feb 13, 2013 7:21:36 PM

I'm thinking I don't like the black backgrounds - let's stick with white only.

Feb 13, 2013 2:21:16 PM

@vivek.singh.376 tell me what you were going for here? I like it but not clear on your intended conveyance.

Feb 13, 2013 2:00:59 PM

#19 @sw_macker - I like that you are the first to attempt to utilize the link in my initial comment. The font is too modern, but I like the beginning effort.

Feb 13, 2013 1:58:25 PM

@vivek.singh.376 the elements that I want seem to be contradictory but that's where a clever designer excels.

My potential customers, the people that I'm selling to, are the rugged individualist leaders of their industry. They think in decisive, bold, action terms. The design needs to be strong, rugged, and convey a sense of the American past.

At the same time, my business is not "old fashioned" or last century in the 1900s. It is instant, paperless transmission of key information across the industry - from manufacturer at the plant where the wood furniture is made, to the retail merchant at their brick & mortar storefront, to the buying customer on their couch looking at furniture on the iPad.

Feb 13, 2013 8:48:47 AM

well sir i would like ask a small but a very brief question if you don't mind. Is there any other important element that we are suppose to focus on ?

Feb 13, 2013 6:25:14 AM

Thank you all for getting my contest off to a great start! This is my first contest, so please give ME feedback on how to provide helpful direction to you. My comments will be short and to the point, please don't take offense because none is intended. There's a lot of designs to comment on; I will discuss the three or four I think are the best beginning and please build from there.

#5 #6 @trebz - I like the play on the crosscut of the log; be careful to differentiate it from this logo http://www.crosman.com/ that immediately came to mind for me. I think the 'splatter' effect not effective for my use. The actual type saw called a crosscut is here: http://tinyurl.com/ba86rq3

#3 @omARTist - Nice play on the saw made from three C's - make it more compact and rugged please. Also keep in mind that the 'saw blade' aspect does not have to be round - see tinyurl link above.

Keep them coming in, I can't wait to see more and declare a winner! Jack
