It's a logo representing himself, he can make it however he wants.MrDomino said:There should be some kind of visual key for what a logo represents. Without any indication I would think that is a logo for an evil wainwright. Which doesn't really make sense since no one uses wagons anymore. You also shouldn't use existing logotype for your logo. I see that "S" and I immediately think of Dark Crystal. I also don't think that you need all those 3D effects and outlines. Don't add things unless you need them.
So if a company makes a logo themselves, they can make it look however they want, even if they are completely ignorant of design? I guarantee to you that a company that has a bad logo will not last long because they will have no identity in the consumer market.EricW said:It's a logo representing himself, he can make it however he wants.
Good work shizzer, it fits you well.
Nuff said, please try to remind yourselves that it is only a little fun, if i was designing a super buisness i would take mind of it, but so far i like it, also it was only designed for a desktop theme hereGFK said:shijing isnt starting a company, he's just having fun with photoshop...
Because i thought i might get a comment that could be useful and not obvious, like a different shape or colour scheme..pfft, it must of been wrong to tag this as a logo then. it was to be used for the above DT theme and thats why its not basic, everyone else who posted a crit seems to understand that :/Why ask for C&C on things you don't care about? If you are just screwing around in photoshop, why post it on the internet? Why place it in the public eye?
You seem to forget that this is not a contest, not a business, it is only a simple logo that Shijing created for himself and he took the liberty to share it with us.MrDomino said:I've yet to see someone else post a critique. If all you want to hear is sugarcoated niceties and empty unfounded compliments, say so from the beginning and remove the pretense that you want artistic criticism. I am not going to lie to you.
I understand that fragility that your art has in the beginning, but you have to get past that. There will be times when you simply do things wrong. I do it all the time. I'll spend hours on something and scrap it completely to start fresh. If you can't accept when people don't like what you've done then you'll never challenge yourself and you will never get better, it's that simple.
