Thank you all for your answers. We are getting great feedback and every one of them is greatly appreciated. We will keep the question featured for another day, so if you have any additional feedback you are welcome to add comments.
If anyone wants to give it a shot and design their own GirlsAskGuys.com logo or make changes to the current alternatives, you are more than welcome to do it. If you come up with a design idea, please post link to your own designs or email us at
By the way, logo change is not the only change you will see in GirlsAskGuys.com. We are going for a full new version which will address all your feedback so far about the site. A mobile version, a mobile app will be released at the same time with the new design. There will be many many surprises...Thank you all.
I chose A, it's simple, to the point, and I like the overall look to it, and it's not too flashy. Plus I like the use of the arrows, which I've just come to recognize this site from.
I think B's a little flashy. Sure, it's attention grabbing, but I think it has too much going on. And what really just grabs your attention is the black speak bubble around ask. it's eye popping, but it doesn't do much for the "girls" and "guys" words of the logo.
C's a little plain in my opinion! It's just words, no real attention grabbing element to it.
I really like C, its typography is very pleasing and balanced. It's a catchy form and I can see a whole style/brand developed around it. However, it is not very reciprocal with the girls on top of the guys.
I also like A. It looks strong and legit, but there's something about it.. probably the tall slanted typography or the thin arrows that makes it feel a wee bit dull.
If there was a way to somehow conserve A's and C's best traits, that'd be what I'd probably love most.
B just doesn't make it for me. It looks too swirly, over complicated, and the black dialogue on Ask seems a bit too aggressive.
A is my favorite from these. B is too feminine and I think it looks like its more targeted towards females (but I like the speech bubble in the middle a lot), and C's problem is that its missing the arrows. Without the arrows, it looks like only girls are asking questions from the boys, and not the other way round as well.
I have to pick A. I like the original idea with the arrows, which means I couldn't pick C. Neither could I pick B, because it looks kind of tacky/childish. A is perfect. It's fresh and new, without having to make any drastic or boring changes.
I really like B, it stands out a lot and the added black makes it look pretty cool. The font is kind of bugging me though. Can't really put a finger on it, but looks a little "kiddish" if that makes sense.
I, as a graphic designer like the last one the most because it just says It all, but I think you have to go with the middle one because the design is like young and fresh. I really don't like the black text balloon on B. ^^
D because I'm used to it and none of the others obviously trump it.
C and A are close to a tie. With C slightly ahead because I like simplicity in a logo.
B is dead last because I just don't like that script, it's way too busy, and I don't like the large black area. Rather than reading left to right the black draws the eye straight to the center so all you see is ASK and maybe get around to looking at the other words later. That fancy script, with the shadows, reflection glare, black area, and dot com squeezed in is just too much.
I liked 'A' the most but I voted for 'D' i.e. keep the original one cause I think it's more descriptive
'A' in the meantime though seems to look better than the current one (any well thought of change generally seems to be more attractive and pleasing to the eye / mind), on second thought it seemed to be in a (vicious) circle - a closed circle which symbolizes no beginning no end :)
'B' is too loud as if begging for attention but well designed
'C' doesn't suit the image of GAG + one on top of another may not go down well with a lot of people even if subconsciously :)
I really like A. Subtle but is there is an important difference that doesn't take away from the brand, but adds to it. In this link you see that many well known companies also changed their look and many proved that less is more
The black in B is distracting (if it were lighter it would be a lot better) and the lack of arrows in C takes away for me
I chose D, but later I realized the arrows in the first choice rotated, which is a very nice touch. When I see the arrows rotate around the ask, I get that the "Ask" can be either for the guy or girl and all around. Well it makes better sense, even if my answer doesn't. :-)
None. It wouldn't really be that much work to take (B) the only one that really catches someone's eye during those split seconds of skimming through ads, and use a more feminine and girlie font for "Girls" and use a more masculine and industrial font for "Guys."
A is nice and clean, though not a significant improvement over the current logo - but if you're just looking to change things up a bit...
I really don't like the use of black, especially in B (but also C) - which looks very messy, what with the drop shadow, gradient effect, decorative font, etc. It's all way too much.
C is bland and not very aesthetically pleasing. Plus it doesn't have the arrows, so it suggests that GAG is now just a site for girls to ask guys questions, rather than for girls to ask guys *and* for guys to ask girls.
Option A is so clean and polished and smooth and original but I feel like it's time for something different so I'm going to vote for B. If you can make it a little less glamorous as in less feminine for B... yeahhh that'd be great.
You should modify the third one slightly. The part that says ask, should be turned into a conversation bubble like the second one, but white. Wedge the point coming out of the convo bubble between the why on "guys" text and shift the girls text slightly left to fit the bubble into place.
I hope you guys are reworking your site with bootstrap or something similar so that you'll be able to expand and contract your layout on different devices. It's annoying always seeing people ask for a GaG app. lol
The current one isn't bad, although I think the colors of the arrows should be the opposite: the blue arrow should point to "girls" and the pink arrow should point to "guys". So just reversing the colors of the arrows on the current logo would be my choice (your option B is like this, although I prefer the simplicity of the current logo).
However, you might consider some variation on the Yin-Yang symbol, although instead of black and white use pink and blue. I'd still have arrows in there somewhere, and the word "ask" would be along the dividing line between the colors. If I can find some time I'll experiment with this idea...
I'm a firm believer of "If it's not broken, don't fix it.". I think the current logo is just fine. Instead of paying people to create new logos, why not pay someone to clean up the website? For example, 'Experts on Video' has not been updated in two years.
Even if the person designed the new logo for free, it would still be a poor allocation of GAG staff's time.
People don't often notice that girlsaskguys, is not actually "girls ask guys". There is the reverse arrow, which also means "guys ask girls. But unfortunately, it's hard to see, and I didn't even see it until I asked about it. It makes it sound like girls are not capable of figuring things out for themselves.
I definitely like A the most. Not a fan of the font on B. However, I do like the black speech bubble around ask on B. C doesn't have the arrows, which I think are essential for letting people know that both sides can ask and answer questions.
