  2. Look too busy to me, especially in the black and white version.
    At least, I would have removed the central linking vines

    Looking at the Bio Themes website, you’ve not considered how the logo will look scaled down. At the size it is on that website you don’t get to see the level of detail and it all kind of melts into one big green blob.

    This isn’t a criticism of the design itself, it’s a great on concept, and the execution is slick. But failing to consider sizings, especially when it’s specifically for a website is a little unfortunate. I can see the logo working at a larger scale, but it just doesn’t work at the size it is currently.

    I think this is an ideal opportunity to put the ball back in the client’s court and request the logo is a little larger… a designer’s nightmare, but thoroughly justified in this case.

      Hi Abbas, John here – or “The Client” if you will. We love the logo, which is why we display it in all its detail and glory at the bottom of product pages and on the about page of the site. We don’t feel the need to have the logo huge on every page – we’re ok with it alluding to the larger version of itself ;)

        You should… a good logo needs to be flexible, who knows what the future brings you.

    Great design Chris, I don’t think BioThemes do it justice though by using it so small on the site, I’d at least have had a bigger version on the home page to show of some of the details you put it.

    Yes, really nice work but all that intricate detail is now missing on the BioThemes website. The word Themes dominates the Bio logo, it should be a lot smaller in relation to the word Bio. Time to redesign the website to make full use of the logo. Great walkthrough as always.

    Great job there, although it’s a shame it appears so little on the website. You can’t see the details, especially the butterfly.
    Thanks for sharing the process.
    B.T.W., what resolution did you use?

  22. Nature is the most inspiring of things; it is great how it could create anything even in the cyber world.

    Great tutorial! We hope more people would use this example and create their own nature combinations.

  25. I just love that logo! Over the years I’ve made a few logos myself but those have been purely in Illustrator. This has opened my eyes to what can be achieved in PS. Particularly I loved the first part where you warped it into the shape of a leaf – so simple yet effective!

  26. Looks great!!! Awesome workflow!!!! I would just leave a little more space between the “i” to be able to distinguish it a bit more.

    To everyone complaining about the size of the logo on the site – you are missing the point a little ;) The website doesn’t exist to show off a logo, it exists to sell products. That is (quite rightly) the focus of the design.

    We’re very proud of the logo, which is why it *is* displayed at full size in multiple places throughout the site :)

    Chris did an awesome job, we couldn’t be happier!

    @JohnONolan

    The ‘logo’ on your site (biotheme) definitely needs a fix.

    ‘Bio’ is almost unreadable.
    ‘Themes’ colored in blue on silver bg is hurting more than helping.

    ( in case you are too lazy to care, just blow it up 2x.)

    I don’t know where you get the time from to do all this design work and then write brilliantly descriptive articles to take us through how you did things. Thumbs up! :o)
