i don't see one of these threads up so i'll start my own
i'll go first i guess
>made up burger place for school portfolio
The graphical burger could be a little more exciting (or visually tied-in with the beach setting), and I don't know if I like the font for "Beachside Burgers," but it's friendly and easy to read.
had to do a poster for bladerunner and incorporate elements of bauhaus.
posted this one right before the last thread 404'd
nehi stands for northeast housing initiative btw
the body shape is ugly
blood drips are too big
but is not ugly at all, just need some fixes
I feel like you say burger too much for the minimal design you are going for.
It's a burger place, so:
All lower case and title font look childish and don't match with the background you have. So change the background.
The background could be more transparent to be less distracting.
The graphic burger is just not good... Probably not needed either.
Aim to print this on a 4x6 card or something small; 8.5x11 is overkill for the complexity of your menu.
I was lurking in the last one, and I don't have enough expertise to critique properly, but I really thing this is coming together nicely. It's modern, but not bland like every redesigned FTSE500 company logo, it seems like it'll be timeless and I think the typography choices fit well with the shapes
I feel like this one is all wrong. Thoughts?
Do I need to go full color like the goat?
very often those package designs use simple shapes (no gradients) combined with text warping/arcs.
That burger does not look appetizing. I wish the patty were meatier, the lettuce was leafier, and the tomatoes were thicker. I also wish they were wider than the buns. I dislike the transparent background a lot. Do a solid color or a pattern.
First time ever attempting graphic design, some logos I made in photoshop. Please roast me mercilessly but also tell me how to make them better.
made a poster for the film nights of cabiria
its a b/w movie from 1957.
They're all very bad.
What you did right though is iterate on multiple ideas which a lot of people skip. I would suggest doing this on paper first (or just with a graphics tablet). It's much easier to see if something is going to work or not.
20 quick ideas sketched out very roughly, refine the couple that stand out. Only present the one that works in the end.
As a general rule of thumb, logo's don't have textures and 3D is used sparingly if at all (usually suggestive of perspective without actually being 3D). The edge case being you're making a logo for some edgy music label, which you're not.
Bauhaus doesn't mean just geometric stuff, black, white and red.
It's ok, but the details are totally useless. The smoke, for example. Or the flying car (that could have been placed better)
What are you on about? Raw beef is fucking delicious
For a small bottle recycling company.
The name of the company starts with "B"
Bretty gud, not a fan of the "S" in "ES" though
Very early WIP for a personal project I'm working on
Ignore the type, I just haven't deleted it from when I scanned the original document
Looking for input on the actual concept and then ways I can improve this particular attempt
Logo I'm working on for a client trying to get sponsorships for some sort of trophy truck event. company name starts with an S. Thoughts?
oh okay I see. I misspoke. It's for his company that will be entering their truck into different events.
so it's less specific than just one event. I'm thinking of changing the gears to yellow and having the S wrap around the gears a little more as well making the S bigger in proportion to the gears
Alright here's just my opinion, and I don't know a whole hell of a lot about cars so take it with a grain of salt
No part of your design says "truck" to me. Don't get me wrong, it's a pretty as hell design. But I just do not get truck from it.
What kind of events are they entering it in? What kind of truck is it, what is it for?
Read that afterwards. Technically I guess that fits their specs but I still don't get "truck" from it really at all.
Fair enough, thanks for the input it is much appreciated, I'm not really a car person either so it would probably help if I was. It's also a very rough first draft but I just needed some kind of input.
Oh and here's another conceptual project, but I like the way this one is turning out. The end game is a brochure + webpage mock up for the portfolio. I'm intimidated to render a 3d version of this product design but I think the combo of sketch up and AI will get me there.
Creating a business card for myself (front/back). Would apprecriate feedback.
I'm not a graphic designer, but I enjoy doing things like this for fun
Logo is bad, like really bad.
sans serif copy is fine but it lacks a fluid legibility on the back side.
Colors are ok but black would be better than grey considering your complimentary color choice doesn't benefit more from one to the other.
Hey guys, not a critique as such, but something I need to know.
Which horizontal line of colour-sequence suits best here, line 1 or line 2?
Answer in the 'poll if you'd be so kind, though if you want to mention something here too then that's cool.
Doing a intro for a youtube channel. I wanted to keep it short since I personally hate long intros.
Hows my illustrating lookin? I think i gotta go over the animation again, try to make it a bit more organic.
Honestly, it looks good, but you should try using a different background. Not necessarily solid colored, but maybe something with an extremely subtle pattern, almost like recycled paper or something.
Redesigned Leica logo for design class. Did it in indesign cause I don't know illustrator well enough.
Not a fan of that typeface.
Cool design. Something about where the black connects between the gears is throwing me off.
I really dig it. I agree with the guy who said the stars looked too much like a pattern. Type looks really cool. For some reason it looks slightly off-center but that could be me. The way the type comes is seems a little bit weird to me and doesn't exactly match the rest of the animation. I'd say just try a couple of other ways to do that. Dope though!
touched up the USA basketball logo, is it an improvement?
Design I'm doing for a school yearbook. Page 1 of 4, where the rest will list out different awards. Thoughts?
I like the graphics in the background. The type is positioned quite nicely, however it would look much better if you tracked the top line of text so that the "S" from speech lined up with the "A" from awards.
Personally, I'd most likely go for a solid colour for the text too. Probably black since it would contrast nicely with the background colours.
Will look nice with a little bit of tweaking
cute style but a huge mess. everything is too close without fitting together nicely. space it all out a lot more unless you're going to hand-letter/vector that type to fit snugly and with some logic
Also, look at the thumbnail version here in the thread. You can see several areas are so pinched that they will bleed or anti-alias together if it's used at small sizes anywhere
Im making posters for our Model UN club and I wanted to do a constructionist one. The explanation is that in a circle all of the outermost points are an equal distance away from the center, symbolizing the (apparent) equality of Nations at the UN. Can I make this poster better in any way? I think Its pretty good, but it feels like it's missing something.
Left or Right?
or should I start over
names and logos have been changed obviously
Look brilliant. I would make two small changes though:
1) The first downward bounce of the text is too long for it look as natural/organic as you said before. The rest of the animation is fine, but fiddling with that first bounce down would help I think.
2) I agree with the others that the starts look too much like a pattern. I reckon you could solve this by changing the distances of some of the stars from the edge, and by having some within the fringing of the moon, too.
I like where this is going. Try having the knockout part of the basketball curved as though to follow the curves of the eagle. Instead of presumably just being a white stroke set really big.
People hold business cards with their left hand most of the time. If you pick Right, they will be awkwardly shifting to check the number while calling. Pick left anyway, it's more readable.
Hoodie design i made for a class im taking.
Why is the umbrella handle thinner than the letters? If you're doing a design where you incorporate other objects into words as letters, the weight has to be virtually the same if you don't want it to look garage-sale-tier. Nice concept though. This has a lot of potential to look very good.
