Toby, We need the following changes and then can you send me another proof?
1-Within the circle, the words must appear like ?Home Aide? all on one line. Make the letters smaller.
2-The Words Home Aide Diagnostics must be taller, i.e., at least as tall as the logo.
3-The font for the words Home Aide Diagnostics are too thin. Can you try a thicker, bolder font like broadside. Remember, the exhibit hall is a huge convention center and people need to see this sign from across several aisles.
Thank you. Sincerely, Angela
Hello. Yes, indeed a challenge. Mostly it is a logistics challenge. Making the Home Aide Diagnostics taller makes the letters look very squeezed. And then, because of needing some room for the g in Diagnostics to drop down (and a corresponding space at the top to balance the layout) limits how tall this line can be (all because of the limited length). And broadside also gets a little thin, again, because of the squeeze on the length requirement. Making the ‘home Aide’ one line adds even more length if the logo will stay proportional to the lettering – otherwise we would have to go the other way and make the logo small. But the logo will be so small that it will not even be a recognized element of the design.
So, all that being said, notice this link: http://www.signspecialist.com/transfer/upload_files/home-aide2..jpg This layout gives much bigger letter height and length and gives you a ‘supper sized’ layout (which is currently being used in most corporate display of logos). Let me know what you think.
