The curvature of the "S" looks a bit unappealing, it's something with the heavier stroke in the middle of it. Also, the "Z" doesn't really follow the overall design of the other letters. The numbers (the ones that have the same height) are okay, though the bottom of the "2" looks a little weird and out of place. The "@" symbol sucks ass. The "&" sign seems a bit too oblique and doesn't look right, and the "?" looks a bit condensed and also doesn't look right. In some respects, your font looks like a better version of Bodoni XT, although that font's numbers look a bit cleaner. Overall, it's a pretty good font, well done!

Festival Company, Science Museum, and Graphic Solutions Company are very bold. it kind of makes them illegible, I'd suggest switching fonts to match the rest or changing the boldness. I really like your resume other than that.

Black and blue is not a good color palette for food packaging. I realize a lot of fish packaging is black traditionally, but I never thought it looked particularly appetizing. They have done research that indicates that people eat smaller portions when eating off of blue plates.

The front, when viewed by itself, does not communicate the shape of the fish effectively. It just looks like two blue blobs.

The window where you can see the product is too small and it's a weird shape. The fish graphic is distracting from the real fish.

Filetes de Pescado needs some kerning love.

The secondary font is not a good choice.

The reverse font (Helvetica) is too cramped leading and not a good choice for setting text of that length. For advertising copy, you want a maximum of 7 words per line, not 13-15 like there are now. Setting the type against the outline of the fish just makes it look uneven.

Attached an image of some fish packaging done well.
>>
>>245924

What would it look like if it were just the two images (street with dancers, street without dancers) without the yellow color shift and the dark overlay on the background?

2016 needs kerning.

The AIX typeface is not playing nicely with the DIN typeface.

The overall effect of everything being off the grid feels a little sloppy. Either make it way more off the grid (rotate some text 90°, and get illustratorly with it) or redesign it on the grid.

If you guys could excuse the roughness around the edges on the letters, could I get a critique on this? It's for a minecraft server I'm working on, and I'm just throwing around some ideas. It's based around "resource nodes" and since a node is a circle I went with that theme for the text.

I am, it wasn't sarcastic, and I do like your work. To rephrase, "Good job, you didn't fuck it up."

While time consuming, any designer worth their salt should be able to create a print page design. But they are just page designs in the end, and how you use them defines how good they really are.

When you start building a reactive page grid for a website is when your understanding of grids is put to the test.

You are giving too much credit to the common designer; throughout my career, I have not once worked with another designer that knew a third of what you and I would like to expect to be basic / common knowledge. And these guys were educated too (I never went to school for this).

And responsive web design is not as mystical as you make it sound; You start with the most limiting format (smallest screen) and you work your way up to a certain resolution, then set @media queries in CSS to adapt to the grids you designed. But that still lacks a baseline grid, which is something that has been around for ages but has only recently been picked up and only by the underwhelming minority of enthusiastic web designers.
Knowing how to design a grid system with vertical rhythm in correlation to the typefaces of your choice to support the readability of the paragraphs at all sizes is something that I have come to realize is a rare trait.

I'm not ego-stroking btw; I'm just trying to converse about designing grids (not in relation to my submitted work here).

Trying to combine the distressed letters with the clean digital looking graphics doesn't mix together well. Pick either weathered or clean and stick with it.

The distressed lettering has no reason to be paired with the illustration style, be more consistent with your drop shadows (why do the cards have them and not the banner or mugs?), make your drop shadows more natural looking and not so grayed out, if you're going to duplicate your card and mug shapes make them more interesting than just flipping them horizontally, the way that left mug interacts with the banner makes no sense- the handle is poking through where there's suppose to be a fold, the noise filter you have on the shapes in the background is pointless, etc.
Meh.

>>250026

If you are making illustrations/icons/whatever to match together in a set or next to each other make the lines the same thickness throughout. Like the ring in the middle has a thiner outline than the two other objects, which makes it look off. Make sure all objects have the same detail density. I believe it's called scaling.

Also I advice everyone when looking at your stuff take a step back or look at it from across the room to see if it still works. Turn it upside down to see if it is still balanced. Also take breaks and look at it later again.

Please tell me hot to improve my logo, especially in the colors.
In the back is an A for my first initial (someone said it looks like a J)

Drop the soft black glow on james. Commit to either a black stroke or black drop shadow and not both, then see how it looks.

However at second glance, if you went with a black drop shadow then the "j" in james will blend right in with the white ring border. So I guess you should try stokes first.

>>250146
Thanks. I think I will tweak some of the kearning and call it done.

Done. Added background to make it easier to see. This is the same background color as my website btw, so I guess that should be taken into consideration as well.

Otherwise I think it's pretty good. I'd look at playing with the shadows, moving the ads and maybe adding some simple effects. Netflix & Google's style guidelines would be good inspiration.

I'm creating this logo for a friends who wants to start his own youtube gaming channel. Its called friends gaming. I am not sure if I like it . Doesn't help that he doesn't know what he wants.

Anyone want to rip on this one?

Top left is my first take, I really want the disconnected stencil-like look so it represents shapes/form on top of just being words. I'm aware 'er' isn't kerned properly.

Top right is the refinement, replacing the smaller words with a joint version of the typeface because I felt those smaller words needed a boost in legibility.

I'm basically set on the top right version but I'd like some second opinions.

either top right or bottom left. leaving out half of the y in "by" is pretty awful

I need some advice.

1. How do I make this less boring while at the same time making it more sophisticated?
2. Is it tacky that I put my degree in the logo?

This is for a website I'm creating.
>>
>>250305
>less boring but more sophisticated
subjective, but try some fancier script. elegant cursive etc.

>is it tacky putting my degree in the logo?
Yes. Only students with no real experience put their degrees out front. This is how people end up doing jobs for no pay but "great piece for your resume!"

Your 'i' can be a person.
'r' and 'd' are similarly round, can be used for something automobile related.
When I think taxis, I think black and white checker patterns, or a trapezoid shape.

I used to have this issue where I'm tasked to create a logo and I have no idea what the fuck to do. So I open up Illustrator, put down my text and go through some a list of fonts. Then I try to play with the weight, kerning, spacing, orientation and whatever, but let me tell you that is not enough and shouldn't even be your first step.

This sounds like a very college assignment thing to do, but you should do an actual brainstorming-idea web stage and just jot down some rapid fire thoughts about your company and taxis in general. These ideas will carry you from there.

I usually tell myself that if I can't explain my logo then it's probably useless. How would you present and explain the design to your client or even us?

Nah man. Not better at all. That glow on the A is bad, the "Ennis" is too small and isn't even centered. It's super generic and doesn't say anything about you.
