    So this is my first try at our monogram. I'm not sure about the fonts, what do you all think? Do you think the blue looks too "cold" for a DW? Thanks!

        OK - I think I figured how to attach a file. I actually included the fuchsia one which I don't think looks too great - what do you all think?

          I actually like the fushia one...it's just that the blue lettering is a bit of a harsh contrast on it.

          Could you do the palm trees on the blue one? Also just from a design mind the dotted circle going around it probably isn't necessary, it's a wee bit distracting. I take it your colours are fushia and blue and you want to have both showing on you monogram correct?

          I think you should use the fushia one but play around with the blue a bit. Sometimes outlining with a very thin white and then making it transparent can help break things up a bit. Or alternatively make it all fushia and white. I like bright colours for DW things

            Whoops I opened it in Powerpoint somehow and your palm tree wasn't showing in the blue one If you prefer the blue one my advice is to use some brighter blues!!! You did a great job...it's hard to design these things in Powerpoint!

              great start! i think all the different borders are a little much. would lose japanese dots or the drop shadow/beveled look in the inner circle....or both. it also looks like the circle is slightly oval.

                Thanks for you suggestions - your monograms look so nice - did you make them yourselves? I'll play around with it some more - I got rid of the dotted lines and made it a true circle and it does look much cleaner. What do you think? I'm still not sure if this is that great and looking at yours, yours' are so much nicer.

                  nice! i like both of them. you might want to move the P a little to the right since it's too close to the V.

                    Very nice!!! I think I like the blue one even more now that the dotted lines are gone!

                    I made mine using a program called Adobe Indesign. I tried at first in PowerPoint but my company had recently bought me the Indesign program and I found it much easier to use.

                    Maybe try resizing the P and then move it over....to match the amount of spacing beside the "M".

                    Love it! What about brightening it up a bit and making the "p" like that red/coral color. LIke the color scheme you ahve and it's a pretty design.

                    OK just saw all the rest of the feedback :) And I love your second versions too. The pink really pops but I like the blue too. Tough call!
