A logo for RealCentralVA.com

After donating money to Todd’s attempt to be released from “jail,” and receiving a t-shirt as thanks, I figured now was as good a time as any to have a logo for RealCentralVA.com. I contracted with F5 Designs via Elance for a logo. I filled out their questionnaire and this is the result –

Realcentralva Logo

When I asked them what it meant, this was the response, one with which I am pretty satisfied:

From what we saw in your site, we related the connected arrows with Market connections and communications. As a central point for meeting and sharing information….

What do you think? Who wants a t-shirt or a hat?

    That logo has obviously been thrown together in 5 seconds, my fellow blogger. I would go with a local artist for the logo and then get some programmer to integrate it into your site!

    And that’s why I advocate transparency – for feedback like this. Any recommendations?

    I don’t know, I kinda like it. I wear an XL… 🙂

    The guy that designed my blog header graphic does some really nice logos – cheap too. He’s on eBay at http://myworld.ebay.com/bladoww . He’ll put up a “buy right now” item on eBay when he’s ready for the next client. Very easy to work with, patience of a saint and remarkable value. Note his ebay “feedback”.

    For some reason, the red color to me is counterintuitive for real estate, which makes me think about the earth and cooler colors. The red and the square shape are quite impersonal feeing. Also, I looked at it and thought about traffic jams and red lights.

    Cathy –

    I agree about the color. They’ll change it, but I need to figure out which one.
