    Hi all! I am a designer in Louisiana and trying to make any and all networks I can. I have a part-time design job and freelance, but also have a full-time job unrelated to design. I really want a full-time design job but the job market (and pay) here is horrible. Just trying to keep my portfolio up and do as much as possible. Looking to move out of state in the near future. Any advice on smaller places with high job markets, or is my only chance bigger cities like NY? Looking forward to being invovled on the site and meeting fellow designers!

          I think Minneapolis/St. Paul has a pretty decent job market. Not quite as big as Chicago or NYC?!

                    Hello tink.

                    Want us to clap for you to show that we believe?

                      Sure thing budafist!

                      Funny story though - I dressed up as Tinkerbell a few years back and the whole 'clap if you believe' came up - everyone started clapping. Except one guy, and when told that if he didn't clap I would die, he said he didn't care if I died. Hm, guess that's a sad story, not funny. We laugh about it now though.

                          You should have poked him in the eyes.

                          I'd clap.

                            I am in the real world and this is how I work. I don't proceed without a 50% check in hand. I've never had any trouble getting it. Must be my personal charm and talent

                            Draw it as stroked arcs. Pathfinder does far more than connect or unite shapes. It also divides, crops and cuts with a mask. You want to divide everything then unite back together the bits so it looks...

                            You are emphasizing teeth.
                            Your doubled text is de-emphasizing the company name.
                            No way to incorporate carbon fiber?

                            Pathfinder as PD said. Create all of your shapes (don't worry about over and under yet) ... then select all and divide, then grab the "bits" that need to be connected and unite them.

                            Feels very separated. No cohesiveness. It reads more like a poster than a logo.

                            Less is more in a good logo. Needs to be more abstract. You want to be able to communicate the idea with the...
