How's my Logo/T-shirt?

I tried my hand at designing my own logo. I looked around on Google images and got a few ideas and went from there.



The "image" is just some rings from a log basically. I think it's a bit catchy and has potential to be adapted or integrated into different images/logos.

Next is my business card design I created that plays along the same design. I created the business card before the t-shirt with the "image" in it. I will have the "image" in the next batch of business cards.





I'd like some honest opinions since I'd like to put some decals on my truck and also I will be purchasing a new enclosed trailer soon that I plan on having some large decals put on and I'd like to get it right the first time.

Thanks for your opinions gentlemen.

It looks like a thumbprint.

Your logo is probably the #1 element about your company that people will see as they make a decision to hire you. You want to design it yourself?

But it did come out good.
It doesn't really matter to me if people say "Hey, that's tree rings!" or notices what they are. I just wanted something that looked attractive and that would be identifiable with my company.

Thanks for your input!
i think you should that on the back of the shirt with just just the logo on the left breast. Also put a phone# on the shirt.
I'll pm you my address for my new shirt
esj,
That is what's on the back of the shirt and just a small logo is on the front like you suggested. Couldn't find a photo of the back of a shirt so just put it on the front.

lol jls
I've thought about the phone number and I chose to forgo it. Do you think it would be beneficial?

I figure most people wouldn't have time to remember the number but could more than likely remember my catchy web address and visit on their smart phone. Should I reconsider?
Do you wear your shirt? It's a billboard... it should contain all the information you would give someone in a 17-second elevator pitch about your company... that should include your phone number...

One thing I would consider adding is your personal name on the front...

Color you are using with the black will give the appearance of wearing quicker than others, and mixed with dust will fade the logo... Consider a different color with more contrast...

How many people have called you and said "I need my house remodeled and I got this number off a shirt"

I like it but am not sure about the "new construction, decks, remodeling" tag. Maybe, "New construction, additions, renovations." To me it seems "decks" is redundant.
How many called you and told you where they got the number no matter where it came from?

Your shirt is a walking billboard... it's not for the customer you ALREADY have...

I like the simplicity of this design. I agree that you may want to go with different verbiage. You have very little real estate and you want it to make an impact, and I agree with Joseph about decks seeming a bit redundant when paired with remodeling and new construction. Perhaps you could try a slogan their? I've seen a lot of construction company shirts and they always have 3 or so words detailing what they do, but maybe you could take a page from copywriting and make a promise. Instead it could say "You'll never want to leave your deck" or something to that effect. Just a thought.
The Logo is great though. Really.

I think a shirt is more of a walking ID tag, and/or uniform, than a billboard. I wouldn't spend too much energy on designing a t-shirt

I feel like you should put something between RLS and the wood. It just seems like empty space. Other than that it looks good.
Probably 99 percent, everyone starts with "I found your number on" or "I got your number from" the first time they call.

A van is a billboard a shirt isn't...although I employed a young lady with massive breasts and guys showed far more interest in my company shirts than I had ever seen before.

I like everything in the rectangle. A lot in fact. Looks great! I know you want to fit all your info in but save that for the truck lettering. I saw it as tree rings right away.
would like to see this endowed shirt profile you speak of...."massive" you say?

It doesn't cost any more or less to add a phone number to a shirt... putting your name and logo without the phone is a truncated message...

Anything with your logo and company info is a billboard. Your card is a billboard you hand out, your van is a traveling and stationary billboard, your letterhead, your website... having any one of them without a phone number is a waste, because they ALL lead to one thing the customer needs and is looking for...

The phone number...

Make it easy for them... not everyone you meet as you go to home centers, etc. may want to stop you, has the time to engage you in conversation, or ask you for a card or follow you out to your van to get your phone number...

By having the phone number on your shirt, you are already giving them the most important information they need from you to contact you...

I had numbers on my old company tshirts I don't think it matters.
