I think showing an actual washing machine makes it seem more like a
laundromat, a DIY place, not a laundry service like you will have. And
quite frankly, laundry isn`t the kind of thing people like doing and a
machine is a symbol of that. I think you should eliminate the ones with
laundry machines, which is most of them.
My favorte one is the one by Winger. It is modern and iconographic,
more representative of the style of snowboard graphics and computer
icons. Therefore I think it reaches the college age crowd more than most
others. It is also very versitile making it easy to print for various
applications. And though it is based on the window of a machine, it
doesn`t say "laundry machine". So that`s my vote.
On a side note, and this goes out to everyone, I would discourage anyone
from using a site like this for design work. Though "logo contents" have
become popular, spec work is very damaging to the design industry.
Hell, any work done on speculation is bad for any industry. It is bad
practice to ask artists, web developers, etc. to do work on the chance that
they may or may not get paid. It actually hurts the talent you are trying to
support. What if someone asked you to do work (whatever it is you do)
and if they weren`t happy with the result, they wouldn`t pay?
Brillie54, I am not faulting you for doing this. Most people simply don`t
realize the implacations of artwork contents and they are advertised as
giving great opportunity. But not so. Since you`ve already started it, let`s
finish it and get back to the subject.
Which logo do you all of you like best?
