It’s been a while since the discussion started for a logo for the LinkedIn Power Women YahooGroup. I’ve already done about six logo suggestions for the Group but there’s been no consensus so far! It can really get to be a stretch for the creative process especially when there are multiple decision-makers and innumerable ideas from various people.

Lesson learnt #1: Women are more difficult to please!

Here are versions of the logos I’ve done so far:

I’d created a separate page for the six logos and you’re welcome to view the logo designs there in three size versions.

I’m currently doing some more variations as the poll is currently in process – am doing it more for personal satisfaction than anything else – irritating, but I like a challenge. Here is the latest version of what Brana Lobel’s idea suggested:

And I’ll be updating if I get some more ideas in my very saturated head šŸ˜€ – I’d love it if I get some suggestions from the readers!

UPDATE 1: November 01, 2005

The submissions have been closed so the new logo I designed isn’t going to be considered. But the ones above it are in the fray! I’m going to go vote for my favorite and will post the update as well as the winning logo [ whoever’s that might be ]. The results should be up by November 4th Indian Standard Time.

  1. I really like your logo design just before this very latest one. I like the way you can read it two ways: Linked In Power Women, or Linked Power In Women. I like the stacking of the boxed symbols, and the way it mimics the Linked In logo.

  2. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment with good feedback Laura!
    Unfortunately, Brana seems to have locked out the process and I’ve been a tad late so the last logo will not be considered for submission. The one that you like however, will be considered since it is from the previous lot – so please do got an vote – it is number 16 on the LIPW files list.

    I thoroughly appreciate that you stopped by!

  3. So, I know I’m a guy and that might disqualify me from sharing my opinion, but I was browsing blogs looking at recent posts on linkedin and found these logos. First, I think it’s cool that you’re doing this. I need to get some logos done for the groups we’re planning for LinkedIn. My favorite are the first two. I like the lats one, with flowers, but (and this is probably because I’m a guy) I thought it was a little too curvy in the “Power Women” text. Take it for what it’s worth. Good work on all this.

  4. Brian,

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a refreshing comment! It’s always helpful for the designer to get a completely different view from someone who isn’t involved in the design process.

    The “flowers” are actually supposed to be three women in a dancing pose!
    I did think that the symbol might be misinterpreted but gave it a pass because I was designing what the “client” had asked for and it was evident to the client.

    As for doing logos for more LinkedIn Groups, I’d love to discuss more! Send me an e-mail.

    Thank you for your encouraging comments!

  5. Hi,
    I think all of the designs are great the last one in particular. Since it was not used how much would it cost for me to by it ? of course using my own words?

    Thanks,
    L. Mitchell
