Dark and sinister Sep 3, 2017

To me it looks like something dark and sinister, the outstretched wing of a raven.

I really, really don't like it. Sorry...

Thank you so much! Sep 4, 2017

Thank you all for your input!
The logo is indeed a wing (of a condor, not a raven, as I'm specialised in the Andean world) that I intended to make look like a book.
Some of your comments pointed out something I was already worried about: that it might look a bit sinister. I've just tried changing the color, using the same blue as in the rest of the website, only a bit darker. Let me know if you like it better now

Thank you Nathalie for spotting that typo. I've corrected it. I'll take into account your comments about my website in general. I was not very happy either with the brown parts. I'll see what I can do about it…

So... Sep 4, 2017

...I was right, it's a wing! Bingo.
Difficult to see the relation with translation, though.
Luck.

I kind of like it, but the bottom bit is too short.


I agree. And I like the windmills in the background more.

Nice to me. Nov 22, 2017

Your logo seems pretty nice.
And what's more important, it's minimalistic and flat, and that's what's considered modern today.

Blue Nov 22, 2017

Yes, it looks better in blue, though not the colour of a condor's wing, and other changes seem to have improved it since I last looked some time ago.
I don't think much of considering ravens as sinister though, or condors, vultures, etc.

Wing or flipped book pages? Nov 26, 2017

Lise, the logo is confusing. If it is meant to be an outstretched wing, it looks clipped. Nothing sinister, just truncated. On the other hand, if it is meant to look like the flipped pages of a book, the wing would have to be stylized. There are dozens of good examples on the WWW done by professional logo designers.

Who designed your logo? To be honest, it looks very amateurish.

All I can see ... Nov 27, 2017

... is a cat sitting on a keyboard. Does that mean CAT tools? I can't see any wings or anything like Tom's hands with black nail varnish (I mean, of course, the hands with black nail varnish Tom posted). Ooh, but I'd like to, though ...

You need to remove the trailing dot from the URL. Proz cannot 'understand' that a URL ends just before a sign when there is no space.

Thanks Thomas ... Nov 27, 2017

... doh! I see it now. But I must say I preferred the cat. And I don't like cats much, so if it worked for me, it'll work for others. Go for the cat, I'd say. Or just the cat's paws or something. With a tag saying "No pussy-footing around here, people".

If it is still relevant, I would like to share a post where I wrote and made a video how to make a logo for a freelance translator website from a scratch without paying a penny
