    Hey Everyone!

    Here's the deal... thinking that a better look is in order for the company logo. I'm no graphic guy, so my current setup is pretty plain I'd say. All ideas are appreciated and welcome!

    Take care, and thanks

    I like the idea but it needs something to make it pop..... maybe do away with the * behind it and superimpose a large leaf or something that relates to landscaping. Or incorporate something yard related into the pulse line

    I would say ditch the medic symbol unless you get most of your business from people that want to hire a fireman. I too am a union firefighter, but I would never play off of that. I am proud of my firefighter/paramedic profession, just not sure if it is an appropriate advertising strategy, but if you are ok with it then ultimately that is up to you.

    and make the pulse line look like grass??

    Sorry Ron...
    Actually, I found some leaves to flank the logo, removing the green star altogether (can't have TOO much going on there, ya know? I haven't put grass in yet, but I'm playing with the idea still. Thanks guys

    No prob, Ron... I'm not the best for graphics, but I play with stuff now & then. Nothing fancy for software... it's only Word!

    It looks a little too much like Christmas with all the red/green colors, IMO.

    Being in web development I do a lot of outsourcing of graphic designs. I am a member at a developer site where we can run contests for a logos or designs. On the site you have to agree to pay the winning designer for his work. But you choose how much you will pay before the contest starts.

    So the contest is created with an award of say $50 for a logo design. You may get 10 or 15 entries to choose from. The great thing here is there are some very talented designers. When I post a contest I require the provide full vector and PSD graphic files. This will allow you take the files and have anything you like made from them. If you went to a local design company to have something like this done it could cost you a few hundred to a thousand dollars or more.

    If you are interested I could post the contest for you and provide you with a link so you can see the entries and make comments or suggestions to the designers.

    You can choose any dollar amount to the winning design. $50 will get you a good amount of entries, $25 you will still get entries but not as many, and the better designers will not enter.

    You can send me a PM if you are interested.

    I have a graphics and logo maker program but every time I offered my artistic talents (FOR FREE!) no one takes me up on it. Sorry, cant help. I like the last one someone did the best.
