Hey guys, I've whipped up a few variations of a logo I want to use on my website, business cards and possibly as a watermark. I want to market myself as "Jeff Kwok Photography"

Which one do you guys like the most? I kinda like the simplicity of just the "JK" without photography, however, I'm not sure if it will send out the message that the product of "JK" is the photograph itself. (for example, I don't want people to think JK is the brand of clothing that the person in the photo is wearing)

I currently am using the bottom right one as my logo on my temporary site, while the bottom left as a watermark/logo on the photos. Maybe mixing it up a bit is fine too?

My temp. site is up at www.jeffkwok.com (external link), let me know what you guys think!

Well, my personal preference is the style of the 3 bottom ones. The top "thicker" lined ones are not as appealing to me. As for using "photography", try using the font in the middle one (which is my preference) instead. It works better with your logo. The curent font on the ones that just say "photography" is akward to me. My favorite is the middle one overall.

I'm on the same page, like the logo with more lines, and the serif font in the center. Perhaps you might try putting "photography" below "Jeff Kwok" if you want the logo tightened up a bit.

Bottom right does it for me. I would like to see less fade on the bottom 2 lines just to make out the JK better. Nice job.

I agree with the comments above: the style of the bottom three looks nicer than the top two.

I think the middle would work well for some kind of website header with the bottom right as a possible business card and watermark logo.

I like the bottom right more than the others, however it has something of a 1980's era and reminds me of IBM. What would it look like just as a gradient from red, fading to black with no spaces?

I see you are using Adobe Garamond Pro. Great font, I use it myself a bit! :)

I like the one in the middle because the JK is hard to read and it's written out for you so that it's not confusing. I might tweak it a little because right now it's really long. I would put the text underneath the graphic.

I agree ... I like the look of this middle one but maybe adding "photography" or even a website addy or catch line

I like the bottom right. I would make the lines in the JK thinner and closer together. The font in photography is thin, I think making the lines smaller will compliment that. Nice idea. I haven't seen anyone with a log like that yet.

the serif font doesn't work at all for me. mirroring comments that favor the lower renditions of JK, with the bottom left being the strongest. you havent found a solution for "photography" that doesnt detract from your logo, and honestly im not sure you need one.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. Yeah, i'm still not too too satified about the "photography" and its font with the JK logo. I'll give a shot at thinning the lines on JK to see if it matches better.

Also, I would make sure that each of the horizontal lines is the same width.

bottom right for most uses and i would probably use the center image with your full name for introduction pages, business cards and contact information you embed into portfolios.
