  • Hi guys im new

    Hello friends, im new to this site, and also to the graphic world, i like to do graphic work before this i was doing other computer task like software web etc. but i gave up all these things to what i like, so this will be my introduction of my self.
    i have start to do some designing and learn some tricks from internet. and i did my best to do that, and i have joined many freelancing sites hoping to get attention, so far its 0, and i tried many contest in many crowdsource sites and moderated deleted or banned my account as my work is not unique or is generic designs, and so many times i thought to give up this work, yesterday also i thought about that, but today i thought i will not give up, i will learn from my mistakes and i will be good at it, hope you guys welcome me for this forum, coz i want you guys to see my work and guide me to the correct path.

    thank you guys for your time for reading this, and i hope my English is understandable.

    Not quite sure what to tell you.
    The profession of graphic design is not learned by watching tricks on Youtube or learning the software buttons. There is quite a bit of theory that goes into a good design. Schooling is highly recommended.

    You show logos. Without context, it is very hard to evaluate if a logo is effective. All of these have elements that lose emphasis at the sizes posted as thumbnails here. Legibility, font issues, kerning, color, hierarchy... each of the presented pieces show one or more of these problems. And that's just the technical part. Whether or not they are effective at drawing in the target demographic market is entirely unknown.

    Contest sites are not a very good way to make a living. How much potentially billable time did you spend for no cash result while participating in these contests? On the other hand, a person with no schooling credentials will have a hard time making a living in the professional market.

            I'm confused. This is one of your designs from your original post right? I meant if you could post an image of the logo the client liked, it might help. "They provided me a Logo they want it...

            Hey thanks for the feedback.

            I have tried what you're suggesting with shapes rather than lines, but it didn't work for me.

            That's the challenge, making it looking like CF whilst...
