Ohhh - I think you found a winner. I love the little spray of leaves at each end, and definitely include the bunny. More like a logo than a stamp.
Nice job!

Isabelle Kaye

One word: exciting!
Can't wait to see more!

Just lovely! The rabbit with the little flag is very sweet :-)

Jo, Cornwall

I love it! I spotted it in the picture a couple back in your post and thought - I hop that's the one! It's lovely and so you - can't wait to see more of your venture...

That logo is really so good, i love it. The colours are beautiful and it really does catch the eye. Logo's are SUCH hard work but i think yours is gorgeous!


Looks as though you're in the middle of a busy time. All your designs are sweet.

I loved your end result, but all the stages getting you there are just lovely too. They all looked as if they'd been stitched in soft silk.


Kate Bruning

You see, I could just have a framed print of all of your different 'vanessa cabban prints' logos. They are all so gorgeous... I like the ones with the leaves but in saying that, I really do love them all. Love Kate xxooxx.

Gorgeous Vanessa, love your work! I'm in New Zealand too...


I so love these! They remind me of the gift tags you did. They are just so pretty and really 'you' too (which I guess is the point when you are looking for a logo!)The little artfully placed bunny is a winner. The colours are lovely. It's so nice seeing all these many different things that you do!

Fiona Austin
