I like the G logo that I used as an example. I may want to use the G in a simpler form with the company name to the right similar to the Nelson Laurant logo or possibly the same G logo when I do not have height to work with.
I want a vehicle and sign logo that is recognizable from a distance. Equally important, probably more important is my name. I have built my reputation on exceptional design, high end detailing, personal service, and vast construction knowledge culminating in an exceptional final product, the final product being the home.
My niche is my design ability. It is what sets me apart so I want my logo to be somewhat elegant and creative. I am not interested in typical construction company images although I do not want the fact that I am a custom home builder to be overlooked. The tag line should make it clear that I am a designer AND builder.
My concern about the G logo is that the G overlaps the "circle". I like that but my vehicles are silver and I don't think that the G would be as visible in silver.
The blue in the G logo is very close to what I use now. The brown/bronze is also a color that I feel is classic...rich. however, I am wide open to color options to compliment blue as long as it is classy.
I have searched for a combination of a C and G logos but have not found anything that I like.
EDIT: After looking at the great logos here, I hope anyone entering my contest feels free to be creative.
EDIT 2: After seeing so many great designs, I want to say that I am not "hooked" on the example logo containing the G in the circle. I am very interested in seeing other options.
