    They're the same logo....:confused:

    Or do you mean to ask whether or not you should include the description above?

    No offense, but I can barely read that typeface.

    It's the same logo, just more text?

    The type is hard to read...

    No offense, but it's a little lame either way.

    bad bad bad font. It's also really strange to pair a mostly circular logo with a font that has no circular forms.

    A is best. I would use a different font (as mentioned above).

    So I took a few liberties...

    [​IMG]

    Added a nice font, easy to read, a simple lens flare effect and went for a steel looking effect for the domain name on the bottom to compliment the graphic just above. Just to show ya an alternative, to each their own of course.

    I'm sitting here, with the look of sheer horror on my face. Sorry, but all the designs look cheap and badly thought out. I have to be blunt, as it's just the way it is.

    I would do a little mock up now, but it's late, so i'll have a go tomorrow. I suggest that you take a bit more time with it, 'cause it's apparent that you aren't the most design-minded person i've come across. Think it through just that bit more.

    Honestly... I think that all of these lack the correct elements of design, and therefore do look pretty horrible (agreeing with others here). So I decided to take some liberties as well.

    I used the Futura font, which is one of my favorites. I also did some figures in the background with the Pen Tool in Photoshop.

    All of those pretty much look like the early days of the internet. Lens flare, really? I'd say aaronhead's got it closest, but I question why everyone is still using the beveled solid blue "logo." That's part of the reason it's lookign bad.

    You know what, adamfishercox is right. the beveled solid blue logo does look bad. it should be changed too.

    I have to vote for aaronhead's design. Pleasing to the eye.
    I find the OP's hard to read and the blue is too dark.

    A, B both un-readable. C is ok. D is wtf?

    Logo doesn't do anything.

    Hire a real designer or take some classes? You are selling cars, not items at the dollar store.

    Well I think the white background with the swooshes turns it from a cool design into a boring business card look and feel to it. Plus, the fonts are nothing special and the domain name does not stand out. Yes, of course a professional designer will take lots of liberties and work out something that compliments your branding, print media and web look/feel. For the record, the blue logo in the middle is typically a branded image, meaning changing it could mean alot of extra expense to the client to also change their print media, marketing and advertising. This is why most of us changed only the fonts and added some extra stuff and kept the black background and branding image intact. But compliments to all for originality and pointing out the differences - been a ton of fun seeing the prototypes as it's a great learning experience for those following this thread.

    And the beers are on me! Cheers.

    I like both of these. It is up to you if you want it white or black.
