Cuddlepie Knitting logo

Here is a logo I made for a website that will sell homemade knitted hats, scarfs, ect.. Suggestions/comments appreciated. (all three are the same except for the color)

Todd - Kudos for crafting something special for this craft-related job.

A few things you might look at:

* the connectors coming off the u, d and l seem too different from each other. The 'itti' works nicely because the connectors are uniform.

* You might omit the connection between the 'p' and the 'i' and also consider omitting the connector between the d and l.

* the g on the middle design is sweet, but the other g fits in better.

* You might look at the inconsistent height of the ascenders on the 'ddl'

* if your ascenders, descenders looped, it might look more...more homespun.

* The initial cap 'C' looks too large in relation to the 'K'

* Can any knitting tools be incorporated...can the descenders become loose thread?

hope this helps. good luck.

a few fonts that might work if the client suggests revisions -- P22 has a Needlepoint font, Dave Bastian has a font called Noodle Script, and My Fonts sells Coquette by Mark Simonson.

lower case "g"in green version is nice

Sorry, this isn't specific, but your font seems too mechanical for me. I see a cutesey handwriting font being more fluid, with no harshness to it.

I guess since this is a logo for a website, I was going for cutesey, with a dab of tech. Which ended up making it a little more vertical/rigid than fluid.

Yeah, I am going to tweak this logo a bit after the holiday here and post some new versions. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I think the type choice is to thin and doesn't feel like knitting. I think of fat yarn and country style. tiny threads sticking out of a thick line...Something that is soft and cuddly.
so a typeface that has some weight

It took me a while to get back to this logo, but by sorting and absorbing
all the comments above Ive come up with these three variations. Its actually
more of a progression.
The first one: is similar to the originals except thicker, more yarn-like,
and I removed the connector on the p. The second: I started to make the
connectors and shape of the n's and u more uniform while leaving the varying
heights of the d's and l alone. I also added some breathing room. Third: I
just finished making the connectors and heights more uniform. What do you
think? Todd

The thicker style looks a lot better and taking the connector off the p looks nice as well.

I was liking the uneven ascenders on the d and l -- have you tried making the t's uneven? Crossing the t's at a slant if you do might help it not look so rigid/techy :-)

For this logo I do like the uneven ascenders a tiny bit better. It makes look more hand crafted.
I havent tried making the t's uneven, Ill give it a go to see how it looks.

The differing ascender lengths gave it a sort of crafted naivet

I like the consistent connectors of the bottom with the uneven ascenders.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
I see now that the first stroke of the u looks a bit too much like its owned by the C. But I dont want to detatch it, i like it connected. Im going to take a look and see how other script fonts finish their C's.
Ill work on trying out some variations on the l and tt. Ill post the results. Keep m coming though.
