  1. Way to go Dean! Really love it! Question though Susan… is it necessary to actually put the text in the logo? I think it would look a tad better without it. Also, make sure you have a commercial license for that font. 🙂

    • Yep. Necessary. For all printing tall and slender is a no, no. The heron was tall and slender, placed on the gator’s head, even taller. Must be a square or rectangular image, but white space occupying borders creates problems in printing. We originally planned to have the text beneath, or arched some way around it. Had to suck up creativity for technicalities.

      • Hmm, I wouldn’t think so. It’s a fairly non descript font, so it’s not really over powering anything… I think the image would be okay small.

        I mention this, because I love the logo, but I really do not like the text.

        Maybe just use the first letter for each word on the side. BBHB running down.

            • I’m sorry. This is our final image and it has already been forwarded to CreateSpace. We are quite satisfied with it. Had you submitted an image in the contest, perhaps we would have been more open to your ideas at that time. As it is, we are very pleased with the final product.

              • Okay, well, serious though, make sure you do have a commercial license for the font or you could be sued. I am pretty sure you do, but sometimes people forget things like that, so just want to make sure. 🙂

                • The font is a non-descrip stencil font provided by Cheryl Cuellar who made the vector image. She’s an artist and a typesetter for major publications. I would think/hope she considers such things when preparing work for her clients. I’ll ask her about it, just to make certain.

  2. It looks great, Susan! Great job, Dean! We have a Great Blue Heron that lives at the lake behind our house. Now I’ll think of you whenever I see it. 🙂 I’m sure it’s a relief to scratch this off your list.
