  1. Decisions decisions… I’d be hard pressed to pick a favourite! But with the mandala style ones, no, I wouldn’t associate them with religious symbols. For those three styles I’d go for the first on the left (pink background). With the flowers, I think the purple background is more β€˜spunky’, but I feel like the font needs to be thicker/more bold to read a little more easily when you first glance at it. Not sure I’m of any help and I’ve probably made things worse! Hahah I do love your designs though πŸ™‚

  2. I like them all!! I do think the purple is more spunky than the pink πŸ™‚
    At first glance I can see how the one looks a bit mandela-ish but upon closer inspection it does not appear to actually BE one, to me anyway. Regardless, I’m impressed that you are concerned about making that correlation and that you have been transparent about that and are asking for advice. Kudos to you for being sensitive to the leading of God in all matters!
    Having said that: Tough call.
    I think the question is: is a Mandela-ish logo a Romans 14 matter? If so, does that mean it is perfectly acceptable in private but might offend someone of lesser faith in public? Hmm. I have no clue!!!
    The best advice I ever heard (about tough decisions): PRAY! and if you still don’t know the answer-pray until you do!

    1. Thanks for your words of wisdom, Salt! I’ve realized that when I make the logo smaller (my logo in practical use is way smaller than the ones in this post), it looks nothing like a mandala, so that’s a relief. I definitely don’t want to convey a confused or lukewarm message, so I had to ask my readers and God. πŸ™‚ I didn’t get a bad feeling about the mandala or feel a strong pull one way or the other, so I reckon God doesn’t care much about which logo I choose. πŸ˜‰

      1. So true–after prayer it sure seems some of the things I was fussing over don’t seem to be a big deal to Him πŸ™‚ have a good weekend Lily!❀️

  3. I think they all look great! The ‘mandala’ designs still edge it for me. I feel logos should generally be simple (so they can be reproduced from very small to very large and still look good. With the flower designs, they are beautiful, but quite complex and I would worry a little that they are too detailed and intricate for a logo. Of course, most people access the internet on mobile phones these days so you want something that looks good on small devices.

    It’s challenging that the word ‘retrospective’ is long and ‘Lily’ is relatively short β€” I do dabble in design work myself so I realise the challenge this presents! πŸ˜‚

    I honestly think they all look great (including the flower designs) and are an improvement on your previous logo. Looking forward to seeing what you decide!

  4. Beautiful designs! I vote flower wreath, purple background with white font. Flowers tie in with your name, and easiest to read quickly/at a glance.

    The Mandalas lost the flower effect for me as pretty as they were and just looked like a pattern. I like the name tie in with flowers. (They all look good though, so you can’t go wrong!)

  5. I favor the ones with more purple, but I tend to lean toward purple more than pink. I also like the headband shape of flowers. Food for thought: do you think you should incorporate more pink or purple in your logo? Do you lean more toward love, femininity, and tranquility in your posts or spirituality, reflection, and self-awareness? I hope this helps!
