I think it’s very cool, actually!

I do remember having read in the guidelines that locals cannot be text only, they need some sort of graphics/icon.

I guess it’s to prevent people simply submitting a word in different fonts. Which of course he is not the case.

I think we should open a petition for reviewers to leave at least one line of comment stating why exactly the file was refused. It’s really silly to be stabbing in the dark, having to write back to support, support having to assign another reviewer who will again review your file and then get back to you with the answer the first reviewer could have left in the first place. A huge waste of everybody’s time.

Cheers

Chris

Thank you Chris! Yes off course if i read that guidelines then i can tell that “this logo has no graphic icon” which is actually also not true, because the line before the 100% editable text is a graphic element ;) I think i should try this way next time:

:) Regarding the petition, they should leave some comment i totally agreed.

That looks great! Lol :)

On a second thought maybe it’s also problem with flexibility. The buyer cannot really insert a company name in the Logo and anything but your slogan will probably also not work. So maybe this is a second issue.

You’re probably right. Pity though, sometimes the simplest ideas are the best – and this one is really well executed.

It does make you wonder at times. There are literally hundreds of logos which are simply a glossy 3-D render of a number in a circle or a shape. Those aren’t even logos, those are first-year 3-D animation student stuff. No thought has gone into them whatsoever. And on the other hand a very smart idea gets turned down for being too simple…

I do see the point where this one turned down, as per my previous posts. But in general I do wonder about that policy….

Cheers

Chris

The problem is that the logo is too simple. I know, because I’ve uploaded logos similar to this already and that’s the reason behind not getting them approved.

A good logo is always simple. Always.

I like it. Probably turned down for lack of flexibility.

Actually reading your post you raised a good point. The thing is that we are not supposed to submit “logos”. We are supposed to submit as you correctly put it “logo templates”, with the emphasis on “template”.

I think this is where the crunch point lies. You can submit an absolutely fantastic logo, which the above is, but it may not be a “template”.

Although I’m sure there are many “templates” which were also ruled too simple…

Nevertheless I think it may be a point many of us overlook when we evaluate they rejected logo.

Cheers

I love the logo too. I really like simple logos that are just text and something subtle, but unfortunately, that’s not what GraphicRiver is looking for when it comes to logo templates.

I uploaded a good amount of logos only to be told they are too simple.

I hope new-comers to the logo/identity design industry don’t take what Envato says into working with an actual client—their point of view is for mass sellings. That’s why there are only a handful of great logos on this marketplace. Maybe that’s expected for selling such an important mark as stock. :D

“A good logo is always simple. Always.” here is the point because simplicity != common. And there is an another thing, i have to realized why so hard to make a “good” logo here for me. My own concept when i create a logo for a company or a brand is that: when you are able to separate the name from the picture, and you can put any kind of name beside or underneath, that’s not gonna be your own, personal logo. It could be a logo for anybody, its claimable, substitutable. That’s the mainstream, the common. And actually here we should design commons, substitutable logos. It’s pretty hard for me thinking in that way, im not sure in that right now, should i cut back my way of thinking just be able to selling here few logos? Because on the other hand may affects the quality of my works.
