    I’ll say number 4, because I like the simple circle with the stylish “T.” I almost went with #2, but “TP” tends to be associated with toilet paper.

    Branding usually needs a picture (or action), so #3 answers that. But, I like #1 because it’s in read and there is not a TP (although “TP” is memorable and funny!!!).

    Honestly, I’m not a big fan of any of them. Since none of the above is an option, I guess I’d select #3. It looks the most travel related.

  • April 19, 2010 at 8:37 pm
    Permalink

    The first logo is simple, which is good, but perhaps a different color for ‘plans’ than the rest of the text might make for an easier read. The blue you’ve used for the other choices would probably work well for this. #3 would be my second choice, but I would again suggest you change colors for ‘PLANS’ for improved legibility. This would also compliment your suitcase icon. The outline of ‘PLANS’ for #2 is a strain on the eyes, and I don’t think the ‘T’ of the fourth choice works with the text of the rest of the logo. Since http://www.touringplans.com is primarily a site intended to simplify a WDW vacation (make a plan, stick to it, see more stuff with less hassle), a simple logo should reflect the site’s purpose. The fact that none of the logos have much of a Disney look is good for any expansion (Vegas, baby) of the site’s aims in the future. Nice work, gang.

    Option #4 is my favorite. It looks “bookish” and “educated” -giving me the sense that you and your website know what you’re talking about. #1 is very clean and professional, but also very bland. #2 is just too busy and the T/P in the circle is silly-looking. #3 looks like a PowerPoint I made today.

  • April 19, 2010 at 9:27 pm
    Permalink

    I prefer #1, with #4 a distant second. As someone else noted, the letters ‘TP’ in #2 make me think of toilet paper. And while I find #3 very attractive, I don’t think the suitcases are the right image for ‘touring plans.’ I always think of touringplans.com, at its core, to be about moving efficiently through the parks, which for me doesn’t have anything to do with suitcases. It is a nice looking logo though.

  • April 19, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    i think you need to have TP in the logo and not just the T so I like number 1` with a different T so maybe add a P next to it mate

    I have to say that none of these feel right to me.

    Option 1 is my choice (and I’m a professional graphic designer, so you can trust me… ha!). It’s clean, professional, classic yet has a modern touch (thanks to font choice). One vibrant color makes for very easy application (and fun flexibility should you want to go green for just one day on St Pats day, for example!). Nice circular icon will be easy to use in a huge variety of applications. The simplicity and scalability of that logo are great. Nice design! 🙂

    Of these four, #1.

    #2’s glyph and logotype are at odds: old vs. new. #3 is semi-attractive but half-baked. #4 doesn’t work for me at all.

    #1, #2, and #4 look like publishers. #3 looks like a travel discount service.

    For those who are encountering Touring Plans for the first time, you may want something in the logo that suggests all of the wonderful services you provide. #2 hints at that with the architectural look of the word “plans” as do the suitcases in #3. Could those suitcases be tweaked to faintly suggest mouse ears? Maybe with a T on one case and a P on the other? Or have the overlapping suitcase shadow contain a castle tower? If not, go with the retro look of #2 to reflect the classic nature of the parks.

    Option #1 all the way!

  • April 19, 2010 at 10:34 pm
    Permalink

    As a designer, there are changes I’d make to each of these. In #1, the “t” is slightly off-center to the right. In #2, as others have mentioned, the “TP” makes me think of toilet paper. #3 is my favorite, but as others mentioned, your touring plans are about being fast and unburdened, not about suitcases. And #4 is almost identical to the WordPress logo!

    Still, all of them are nicely designed and professional – I don’t mean to disparage your designer at all. The typography is really beautiful in all four. I’m just not sure that any of the icons brings across the sense of freedom, fun, lightness, and SPEED of park touring that’s the hallmark of the touring plans. My first instinct is a silhouette of a sneaker with wings, with the foot bent as if in mid-step, and the heel off the ground – something that says fun, casual travel, and zipping past all the “regular” tourists who don’t have your plans.

    NOT #3 otherwise I like them all with #1 being my favorite slightly. Don’t absolutely love any of them. I know it’s tricky but some reference of subtle reference to Disney would be nice to see.

    I like #1 considerably more than the others. Option 2 – like the words, but not the logo. Option 3 – The suitcases don’t work for me. Not cool enough graphic for hipster guys like Len & Fred. Option 4 – logo reminds me of Creative Chef or some knock off.

    Ok, so I can’t say that any of these options feels “just right” to me. If I was forced to choose, I guess I would choose #1.

    #4 is too fussy. I don’t care for the font of the T in the logo. It just doesn’t convey what I think of when I think of your web site, which, by the way, I love.

    #3 is too reminiscent of a venn diagram, at least to me. I just can’t get past that. It’s too ambiguous, and I agree with another post when it says that the suitcases could also be construed as briefcases.

    #2 just doesn’t gel for me, and now that others have mentioned the toilet paper thing I’m having a hard time getting past that.

    Have you guys heard of Brian Tippetts? He is a bit of a font guru, espcially in the scrapbooking world. Recently, he worked for Creating Keepsakes Magazine, but he has moved on to scrapnfonts.com. He is super font savvy, and gives great tips. Check him out, I know that he was integral in the choosing of the newer (current) logo for the header of CK magazine. Just a thought.

    I also agree with someone who mentioned the idea of showing movement or momentum in the logo. Maybe with a slant or some well-placed whoosh-y kind-of lines… or maybe not. 🙂

    Gosh, you guys may regret asking for thoughts! I love the web site!

    I’m a logo & typography geek (even though I’m not a designer – it’s just one of those things I’m obsessed with other than EPCOT ;). Of the four, #1 is the cleanest, and the typography is most interesting (but needs a little bit of tweaking.)

    however, all four are unfortunately pretty forgettable. I’m not sure any of them really conveys anything about what you guys do – you could, without being TOO literal, integrate something theme-parky or disney-y (or map-y? or calendar-y?) into the logos (i.e. don’t integrate a mickey head, Disney will sue you anyways 😉 but think about what it is you guys do and see if you can capture at least a little of that passion in the design.

    otherwise, honestly, all four of them seriously look like yet another vacation package search site. Expocitylineyakzoo or something…

    i’m sure you’re happy with your logo designer, but if not I can recommend a few.

    Dont listen!No to one ! lol One is to boring and non-memorable.It looks like a logo you could find on a pack of gum. And the red letters dont seem to lend themselves to Disneyesque / Florida colors. I like 3 or 4 . 3 has a strong association with it of what TP is all about , 4 is a bit MK Fantasyland like. Sort of fairytale which is what Disney is all about to me.

  • April 20, 2010 at 4:03 am

    #4 resembles a real estate development sign.
    #3 Too “thin” and “airy”
    #2 The T over P in a circle..What other TP comes in a circle? Plus the word PLAN is empty, lacks commitment, seems unsure. Who wants that in a PLAN?
    #1 SOLID circle, Weighted font repeated from logo image. Simple, non whimsical, to the point, elegant like that single piece of perfect jewelry rather than mounds of cheap.

    Option #3 for sure is the best. It’s the only one that can be done without even needing TouringPlans underneath of it, every time. Otherwise you end up with a giant letter(s) as the short form of the logo. Plus it’s just a great picture. 🙂

    I like #3. I think it’s the easiest to read. For someone not familiar with Touring Plans it automatically indicates what kind of website to expect.

    Option #2 is the strongest as is, as it does highlight the word “plans” much better.

    I like #3 but honestly “touring plans” is not about suitcases but time in the parks. Replace the suitcases with a clock and a castle and you’d have a winner there.

    It has to be option #1 because it’s the only one that includes the “.com” which is key to marketing. Other than that, I like the suitcase graphics on option #3, but the font/type is kinda boring on that one.(Maybe you could add the “.com” to option #3?)

    #1. The red circle with the “T” would be an effective stand alone avatar for those situations where you need one. For example, it would show well as an app icon. And the full version of the logo shoould include .com, as #1 does.

    I believe the first choice (#1) is the best. First, I like the fact that it is red. Red is considered to be warm, dynamic, powerful, passionate, energetic, and exciting. Secondly, I like that it is all in lowercase letters giving me the feeling your site is simple and easy to understand, down to earth. Finally, I like it because it includes the “.com” at the end of “touringplans”. The name and the web address are one in the same reminding us where to go online when we need help planning our next Disney vacation!

    #4 Definitely!

    option # 1 is definitely my favorite – simple, direct, clear!

    I’m going to break the rules here. I like the logo from #2 combined with the text from #1. Sorry, to be difficult, but I’m an engineer, what can I say?

    I think you need a logo that looks like a “path or road to follow” which what the touring plan is. Maybe a road coming to an intersection to form a “T”.

    No. 1, but I wish any of the choices had a Disney reference as part of it. It may be a copyright issue, but I am just wishful!!

    #4 is pretty much a copy of WordPress’s logo, so I would steer away from that for legal and originality reasons. #1 is simple and pleasing and inline which is easier to use for web sites specificially. I like the #3 uses two colors and it is the most original, so I vote #3.

    I forgot to talk about #2. If “PLANS” wasn’t outline and used the red color it would be a viable contender as well. The outline makes “PLANS” hard to read.

    I like #4, but it’s because of the CamelCase. 😉 Once a Java programmer, always a Java programmer. If you’d numbered from 0-3 rather than 1-4, the zeroth would have won for similar, but C programmer reason. 😉

    It’s a tossup between 2 and 3. 1 is boring. 4 is too formal. 2, however, is neat and professional and 3 is colorful and fun. I do wish one of them had some kind of reference to disney, though.

    #3 is the most elegant and “now”.

    #1. The red catches the eye and it’s clear to read. There’s something modern and on-trend with it as a whole. Very nice.

    #3…even though no one really uses that type of suitcase anylonger.

    Hey Len,
    I like #1, looks professional on mobile browsers.

    Hi Len,

    I like #1 the best. It appealed to me most.

    Number 3. It’s the only one that conveys the travel aspect of the website and therefore gives some idea of what to expect. The rest are a bit too generic.

    #1 – friendly color (warm), looks factual, not frilly 🙂

    I like No 1 the best from the choices there, but I would prefer more of a cartoon style logo?

    #1 is attractive to the eye and stands out amongst the other choices.

    I like #1 best, and it will probably best lend itself to favicon for the site, too.

    #2 seems more sophisticated, however #1 is clearer and I like the “.com” – makes it clear that it’s a website.
