    I don't really consider that a logo and that's one odd looking cat. What is this intended for?

    ditto, looks like an album cover, not a logo.

    You might be on to something if you got rid of the dogs and just tucked "& Kitty" right under "Three Dogs." As it stands you're gonna flub the postage-stamp test pretty badly.

    LOL...I digitized the dogs from photos of my customer's dogs...and "Kitty" is a dog. It's for a small doggie daycare...and I understand the 'this is not a logo' but that is what my customer wanted and what she's calling it, so I am not going to argue.
    We are planning on using just the type like you stated WI. :)

    Ugh...another "this is what my customer wanted, so I am not going to argue" response.

    Then why post it for critique?

    I don't know...I am starting to wonder. So no comments on anything except "It's not a logo so screw?" Whatever.
    Thanks for suggestions on making more logo-like. I appreciate it. ;)

    What if it was just the heads, instead of the entire body. I think the actual dogs are actually taking away from the name, because they are the main focus. Try "three dogs" as the focus, with the dog heads over top, and "& kitty" below.

    Yeah, I agree its not really a logo...a logo is more than a picture/drawing/clip art and a title or a few initials. It looks OK, other than that, BTW Jen did not say it was a cat, it could be a dog named "Kitty"

    The dogs are cute...enough said! :)

    It's all just kind of hanging there like pieces of furniture on different corners of a room.
    Add an area rug (a background shape) to pull then all together.
    Love....Jill

    Hang on to the dogs, you might be able to use them for t-shirts or something like that down the road. Remember, less is more. Glad I could help. ;)

    Exactly so.

    This looks like a third rate talent working at full capacity using MS Publisher. Try again. It doesn't matter what the client wants so much as what the client needs.
