    I just snagged a T3i ...jumping up from Canon's point 'n' shoots so it shouldn't be a problem. It goes into service next week for a client's product shots (sporting goods) and for my own pet project of...

    I'm fully aware that the first logo is black and white, I was commenting on how difficult it is to read at any distance other than on top of it.

    The only versions that are really that legible...

    In the first link, the very first logo is B&W. I think the one with your initials are stronger, but definitely needs some work and tightening up.

    What does your logo say about you?...

    Yeah I meant use the same typeface from the S in the green logo, but if that doesnt work I would keep exploring, fonts are really underrated and people need to spend time finding working fonts to improve...

  • Women dominating the design industry?

    When I went to Uni 2 years ago, 90% of the lecturers were male while only about 30% of the students were male.

    Will the future of design be dominated by women?

      What do you mean, "will it"? The field has been dominated by women for a long time!

      PS, the male dominated designer education field and female dominated professional industry is another reality in design.

          Except that's not what you come away with reading design magazines and such. Most of the highlighted designers are men, at least in my recollection.

            Many of the older, established designers are men. But when you actually go to work in the field, you find most of the working professionals are women.

                      Not saying anything is wrong with it just will get interesting I think...

                            To get serious about your thread, though Buda, I suspect that the field has been dominated by women, and yet the big names are all men. Not because men are better, but because that's the way our society accords recognition, to men, instead of women. It's considered an exception when a woman succeeds, not a matter of course that she will.

                            I suspect that there are a lot of great women designers out there who have had no recognition whatsoever, who've probably been in the trenches doing their thing, but it's the Sagmeisters who get the props, not others. I couldn't really tell you of any good women designers out there, but I'm quite sure that they're there.

                              Okay, I'll stop being nice now. This is SO out of character for me!!
