It's very clever, particularly the cow (bull?)
but I fear your kerning needs tweaking my dear.
Maybe a white inline between the green and black too.
Love....Jill

Hi Paul & Jules

I really like the overall design, but 2 things hit me immediately, 1/ some of the letters are too tight, maybe need to be individually opened up, and 2/ the cow looks almost as if it's 'snarling', I think it's right nostril is too low, overall too level, if you can understand what I mean? Good work though, look forward to seeing more of it.

Looking Good Paul!
I think Jill's Suggestions are spot on.
Or maybe replace the black outline with a brown or copper.. orange if you want it louder. That's assuming you need to keep the copy green. Or white copy with a green outline....
I'll shut up now...
I really like the Bull just the way it is.. Nice illustration!

I need to marry a talented lady that can do my drawings for me, but first I need to learn to vectorize like you Paul.

And I need to learn to concentrate on text layout (I am sorting out the kerning jill)

Thanks for all of your comments guys and gals, it's a fantastic way to learn the art of design,layout and signmaking in general.

I will post the revised logo once it is finished so you can see if I got it right.

I love the overall concept of it Paul but as has been said - I'm not sure what look the cow/bull is trying to achieve.... It looks more angry than winking :-?

looking good

still dont like the black lettering outline as it makes the dark lettering merge in to a larger letter rather than enhancing the visual appeal.

Paul,

The two O's need opening up a little bit & the T in The, - C & H in Butchers, - & the E in west could just do with rotating a touch to follow the curve better :P

Is this for the butchers in West Looe Cornwall?
I thought he was closing at the end of January, or has another one opened up?

I thought we had overcome the "MAD COW" problem. Great design - I don't think I'd look pleased if someone was about to cut me up into little pieces and I think it adds a touch of humour which is sadly lacking on the high street. (Thumb definately needs re-attaching though).

If its less angry you need I would close his mouth and narrow his eye, I just had a little play in photoshop and it did the trick. Hope you dont mind I just wanted to see if it worked. It gave him a bit of a sly grin.
Delete the lines around the bottom of the thumb and rotate it to the right too, Itll look attached then

Latest design for the Butchers West Looe

This is going to be a 1220mm high freestanding double sided pavement sign with blackboard etc.

Might be my first project with the cnc router (hot)

Let me know what you think

Nothing beats a 3 fingered butcher. You know he's dedicated.
Looking good Paul, have fun with the router!

Paul,
the bull is out of place, it would be ok on its own, but not on the butchers apron, just mho

Yeah I Know what you mean peter

The client wants it on the apron but I may try to talk her into having a simpler version of it.

I Steve, Thanks, I have only seen a photo of it on the clients phone but I think they have fitted it too high.

I sugested they fit it just above the windows but they seem to have gone a good 18" above that.

Have they put the swing sign up yet?

The freestanding butcher above is to go on the other side of the river I think, to try and tempt the tourists over in the summer.
