I’m not a designer in any way, but I’m having to design an app/web site for a customer and I’d like to know if the text here seems ‘boring’ next to the logo: it seems out of place and left there without thoughts (same about the smaller leaves).
I’ve already tried wrapping the text around the lower part of the leaf but it just wasn’t natural (plus I didn’t found a font that looked good that way). I like the outcome but there’s something weird about it and I just can’t figure out how to make it look less sketchy.
I like the leaves, they don’t bother me much even if they’re behind the text but I find the text too small. That’s why I suggested you look at it at small size too. If you use that logo on apps or website, the attention is drawn to the red leaves and less on the name. It needs a bit more impact!
For example, using a bolder font, condensed or normal, by playing with the uppercase and sizes. You can also move the leaves to the side or on top, change their colors or match a part of the text with some of the leaves’ colors.
I made some samples using the Interstate font but it could be any other font that is easy to read. You can even mix script and sans serif if you want to add even more emphasis on some of the words; for example, maybe your client wants the word “naturally” to be the main focus or “landscaping”.
The leaves are interesting because you can place them in a way to add some movement to your logo, as if they were flying in the wind.
