I've been trying to learn illustrator lately and wanted to do some branding for random businesses. One of them is "We Be Knives" a shop in San Francisco that sells knives, what do you guys think?
>>
>>234957
those roman kind of leaves (laurel?) should be lower. like next to the text and go behind the knifes.
the knifes look funny, specially where the blade meets the handle in the back one.
font-choice-wise, it makes me think of edgy-teen-metalcore which I guess fits the brand?
>>
>>234961
>>234957

To me the leaves seem unnecessary. Like nothing about a knife company makes me think that they would want greenery as apart of their brand, it really offsets the tone of the crossed knives
>>
>>234961
I see what you're talking about with the knife handle. Thanks for that. I tried making the font sharp to reflect the points of knives, but in hindsight it is kind of looking like a cartoon company from the 90s.
>>
>>234965
I was thinking the same thing. The problem is that without them there will need to be something else to fill the blank space.

I'm in a graphic design class over at my university, and we're doing a project centered around letters.
We're supposed to take 3 letters, and compose them into a piece. They have to be 3 different typefaces, and can be arranged however.
I'm going to do a few, but this is the first one I've done.
Thoughts? Any way I can improve it, or have it work better?

the pictures feel magicy but they relay don't convey any thing
especially with the balls witch kinda puts off a look of mediocre and childish magic

id suggest an optical illusion some how worked into the logo.

and if i was to do it insted of the professionalism look you have id go for more of a sly and mysterious look

but honestly its pretty good if you enjoy it.
you do you boo boo
>>
>>236281
make it white text on black background

wow such magic
>>
>>236309
>you do you boo boo
thanks boo.


I did it really late last night so seeing a lot more problems with it now. But I still like the idea. It's super dull and not the most inviting and won't have any other information so will hopefully only appeal to people with a genuine interest.

I agree the pictures aren't the most magic-y but I'm nicking them from somewhere and that's what they've got.

I think an optical illusion would look tacky but this definitely isn't exactly super professional.

hmmmmmm I'll haev a play

Your lettering is garbage and the colors are lacking, but the illustrations are real nice.

It could be made into a poster I guess, but be careful to make the composition look intentional, and not just like repurposed stickers.

Hey guys, I've used my original stickers and used them on a poster. I sketched out an idea of a cave full of treasures and was aiming for the empty space to make a stylized skull. So the dude's heads would make the eye sockets more or less. What do you think? Does it feel too simple and empty?
>>
>>237681
kek
>>
>>237800
the illustrations themselves are cool, and I don't think it really needs "more" either. But the skull is not really coming across (not even from the thumbnail), so I think it'd probably be better to drop the idea and instead focus on placing things to create a better composition.

Something about the top "fingerprints". The way they are angled make it look like there is a gap between a dog's fingers. There might be something else or not be that at all.
>>
>>237392
Problem with this is I don't see rtj. I see r+j only. I also don't see why the R is solid and doesn't have the hole in it. You might want to focus more on the faxes drawn rather than the logo. Decide what's more important and make it stand out. As is they are sort of competing for space.
>>
>>237800
The skull is created by the black in your illustration. The teeth would be wonky as it is. The crown should be lower to correct that problem. The jewels seem to lack shine to them as well. They seem opaque.

What do these ideas have to do with having a clear, concise and professional CV?

The first set of designs you came up with were much more appropriate but as a piece of constructive criticism I'd say those were still way way too gimmicky. You have ideas though that's the good thing, just steer clear of gimmicky logos it's an easy trap to fall into.

"Clear CV" as a name is simple, formal and to the point, like any good CV should be, so the logo needs to reflect this.

Did you look up references for the glass? Needs to be a proper rich people glass. This one looks made up.

I also suggest tweaking your colors and removing the background texture. Looks cheap as is.

I like the hands on the clock and the geometric thing on top, though.
>>
>>240733
A looks unbalanced next to the Z.

You need to make them more equal in mass/weight.
>>
>>240742
I could probably elongate the stem on the glass. I'm married to the color palette, it's part of their loose set of identity standards. Texture is definitely up for debate, but I want it to have some grain to it like the old French posters of yore. I'll keep looking for something more subtle.

The geometric doodad is a New Year's Eve ball, the event features the largest ball drop in the state. Other than the time I hit puberty, I mean.

Make another yellow bubble in the top right corner of the first image and have "12.11.15" in that one with "The Catalyst Santa Cruz, CA" in the bottom yellow bubble. Make the font the same as the banner in the temporary tattoo image. Also, the sleeve with the "$" on it looks weird. Try messing with the outline. This looks nice, anon.
