Regarding the Bcard background #10 is closest to the shape and softness of the highlight I am looking for but your color is way too vibrant Manc, think more like ezra66 #9 whose background color is more what im after but his highlight effect is too severe. We also cannot direclty copy that 3 prong tobacco leaf image.
SevenBro's your highlights have the right degree of softness to them but are going too oval in the horizontal dimension and I think the greens used could use a bit more saturation, and by Ballpark Weiner I actually meant the truetype font called Ballpark Weiner. Your pipe contrasting is by far my favorite though I think you understand the best how to stylize the pipe, although I wanted a more classic swan neck pipe shape over that straight pipe.
I really really like what Manc did with the hat tipped over the first capital letter. For reference our actual business name uses a capital "G" to start so it might work.
I've submitted a 1st draft before going any further with ideas. I'd like to get your opinion as to whether it's in the right area. I know the font is wrong, Illustrator wouldn't embed it for some reason, so I've used the closest font that I could find. I also tried the text in green, as you said about highlighting the text and it shows up better if it's not in white, cheers.
Hi, it's nice to see such detailed instructions, I shall get to work. However, if you know your business name starts with a 'G', then it would be handy to have the real name as balance/positioning between the text and logo is key to any design, cheers.
Hello, what do you think about entry #30 ?
I've read your brief and feedback and came to this conclusion.

Zegwei's top version is exactly the bcard background im after. Logo-wise I like his approach to the idea but I don't think it is what I am after in that regards, the background however is spot on! Id like to see all submissions with that exact background. Ezra, your pipe is the nicest so far in terms of the shape and style combo but I still am bothered by the amount of solid white in it. I still prefer the styling of Sevenbro's pipe where there is alot more background color showing through the pipe breaking its contrast up. Ezra I would love to see you break up the solid white more in your pipe, remove the circular shadow beneath it and throw some outlined tobacco leaves behind it. The key is to not make it look like its pot leaves though. I think the bowl and mouthpiece area look fantastic and is the direction I want to go. Your bcard bkg is still off though, look at Zegwei's for the ultimate example of what I was after there.
...I've just added a second, more inclusive design without the rigid "Oak" reference and the accompanying business card design - #11 . As stated before; "Seniority" is my own intellectual property and would therefore cost more if adopted. This time I thought it would nice to merge the pipe with the "S" initial as the font has similar curves to a pipe...
...OK I've taken the liberty and included my love for wordplay; enforcing that "bowler hat" market and a certain class of smoker - "Okey Dokey" is a phrase one might use, assuming your tobacco includes Oak leaves...I've devised the name "Oakey Smoakey" on submission #10 . Please be advised that this is intellectual property of my own and will cost extra if adopted...if this isn't relevant, then at least is show my initiative. I may have more up my sleeve...
