This is from a real Request:
It is a simple exerciser to see if a designer could articulate what the client was looking for. It is based on a fifth grade reading level. Out of 15 designers not one of them have been able to reply correctly to this request.
I designed this after paying for three LOGO design that did not meet my ideal logo.
In order to be sure that I am choosing the best designer for my logo project, I am requesting that you read my attached branding style guide. Then tell me in your own words your thoughts and feelings toward this project.
I am looking for a designer with the passion and creative ability to “Blow my socks off!”
Let me know what you think.
Must exude “Old World Quality” and be representative of the craftsmanship of a Wood Artisan. Please read all of the style guide as it tells the story. I have paid for several logo designs but no one has been able to capture the feeling I am looking for. I need Quality, High Resolution and original designed craftsmanship. I do not want Stock looking, or “Logo Creator software” style. I am looking for “WOW factor” high quality original logo period…
Yes, I am picky and there will be revisions until I am satisfied that we have taken this idea as far as we can toward perfection.

We are equipped to provide personalized molding, planning and laminating. One of our specialties is making Laminated Arches and another is working with Reclaimed Wood. Each piece of reclaimed wood is unique. It is the sum of its experiences, and it shows in ways both obvious and secretive. Possessed of a level of character and beauty rarely seen in wood produced by the modern lumber industry, reclaimed wood can tell the tale of its existence to those with the guile to comprehend it. Every knot, every groove, every variation in color has a story waiting to be discovered.
