Oodles of Doodles Logo Critique Cropped Logo

Dawn sent a handful of her concepts for the Oodles of Doodles logo. I choose this one to critique because I thought it was the best fit for her company. It’s worth mentioning that Dawn prefers the first concept in the attached concepts. She is starting a home business doing wall murals for children’s rooms.

I want to use the logo for just about everything, website, business cards, mailings, invoices, signage for the car. Any input would be greatly appreciated.”
