    Would like to receive professional opinions and suggestions on the attached re- make of a plumbers logo I recently submitted for review.

    I have tried a different approach this time

    Appreciate it

    ...I still think the shamrock needs a black outline
    Try the alternate "r" in the font used for the name for a better flow.
    (check your character map)
    I'd put the icon on the other side of the name.
    I'd make the bottom panel maroon for better contrast rather than the tan.
    The circle in the wrench handle needs to be the same color as the background rather than white.
    Love....Jill

    The shadow is a little funky at the tip of the y.

    Wow, Jillbeans, that's a big punch list! I appreciate your comments though. I better get this finished fast, before he is due to go out of business next week!

    Hey, how many points do I get if my next door neighbor likes it?

    You asked for a professional opinion (this is round three of the same logo, right?) and I gave it.
    I think I will keep my opinions to myself in the future.
    It's stellar. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Looks good.

    I'd make the plumbing/heating text & panel larger with more contrast. Looks a little small now.
    I'd try the Burgundy/Maroon too.

    I really like what it's transformed to. I still think what he does is just way too small. No one cares what his first and last name is. We need to know what he does. But i do really like your layout. Very nice.

    I agree with Colorado. You are getting closer with each round. One thing that bothers me is that the offset in the shadow on the shamrock is bigger than the offset in the shadow for his name.

    It looks like you're designing a sign, not a logo.
    Here are some issues that jump out at me
    Lacking balance.
    The gradient in the shamrock seems harsh.
    The style of the hand/wrench doesn't seem to go with the rest of the design.

    Move the 'Doherty' to the left a bit such that the incongruous cartoon hand** comes out behind the 'D' and doesn't look like a severed limb.

    **That element is in a totally different style and finish than everything else. It still looks like clip-art and is mildly discordant.
