Sometimes new is not better

3 years ago I redesigned my logo. I wanted it to look a bit more artistic and a touch modern. I thought the new design would be good for all potential licensing projects. It appeared on my blog, my website, all the collateral.

Forward to 6 months ago. I started designing for 2 new clients (you will learn more about them later) and I realized my logo that I was so excited to use, didn't work. It had to sit with the manufacture's logo and the collection many logos.

After weeks of trying to figure out what to do, I revisited my old logo and made some small revisions. Oddly enough, I think this is the better choice. I like the feminine aspects and the flowing swirls. The above logo looks so restricting when I compare the two.

For packaging that has a ton of logos already, I have this simple logo.

What do you think? I could use your creative input with this.

PS. I can not figure out how to get rid of the black box around the logos...blogger is driving me crazy these days.
