COMPANY LOGO

.
.
Andrew is working on getting his own business started. He's building a wrecker shop and office building in Shelley, ID, and wants to get a sign made to put in front of it as an advertisement. Our first order of business is to pick a company name.
.

Andrew's first idea was AR Construction (as in Andrew-Rachel Construction). I was a big fan of the logo he made, and I told him that it was a very romantic gesture to use his wife's name(i love him). However, I thought he should experiment with using his last name instead. I know everyone seems to just insert their last name before the word "construction", but I am of the opinion that using the not-so-common name of Ashmore will be more memorable. It might be smart to have his name synonymous to and immediately associated with the company as well.

As a result, Andrew made up this logo option as well. We're thinking of coloring the logo an earth friendly hunter green instead of blue. Apparently, there is a big push for "green" building these days.


Anyway, what do all you bloggers think? Which one catches your eye, sticks in your brain, and looks more professional? All suggestions welcome!

Hmm...while I love the first option, I must admit that the second one sticks better for me. Probably because I've always secretly absolutely loved your last name.

I think that I shall vote for . . . Ashmore Contruction. I love the logo and I wish you all the best with the business!

I like the second one too, the name. It's really lucky it starts with an 'A'... you want to be at the beginning of the long list of construction companies... "A" will get you right at the top (of a phonebook page or listing)and hopefully people will stop right there and not look through the alphabet. Good luck! I hope you are both doing well, it sure seems like you are!

What a nice guy! I too think it very thoughtful of him to think of his wife first but the last name has a nicer "ring" to it. Maybe I'm bias because of the last name?
Way to go you guys!
