The Amore Founders
The Amore founders also needed assistance with establishing a logo for their brand. To ensure the right look would appeal to them and their future buyers, three different styles were presented on their Instagram story. They three options were demonstrated with a survey on which style voters liked most.
The founders also shared the DMs that they received throughout the survey submissions. Some of the messages included the following:
“Number 1 hands down, no competition. I love it!”
“The first one is dope. It’s def my fave."
“They’re all nice, but the simplicity of the 1st option stands out.
Based on the survey options and feedback received, option 1 was favored by majority of users.
Consequently, this was the logo style that would be incorporated into the website.
