    Need some more Ideas for Frog Pond Guitars

    Its getting there but I need some opinions. I think the box needs to be a different color and the lettering a bit more Frog Pondy looking any ideas are WELCOME.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Love the frog, but I'd look into putting the lettering somewhere other than on the box itself...either above or below the graphic. As it is now, the name (and company identity) is pretty hidden. The name should be the first thing people notice, and the graphic should be secondary, IMO.

    yup Vaughn is right jay, if anything just the frog on your guitars will be the calling card.. but for the signage and logo in large form you need to make the name separate and use some lava lamp style type. something that gives you the appearance a jump to the next letter

    maybe if you can find some cartoons with frogs in it that have text to look at for some ideas or birthday card with frogs and words hallmark cards?

    Yeah I forgot to say this is just artwork to maybe stick on the CBG's and on the business cards I will have a banner Frog Pond Guitar and I like what Larry showed me. My thinking right now is Frog on the card with a larger FrogPondGuitar.com and my name and phone # (Main Tadpole) on it somewhere. I don't have an editing program that I know how to work so kind of at the mercy of the printers right now.

    Thanks for your Ideas so far keep-em coming
