  • logo question

    i have a nightmare job to make a logo with an american flag and an eagle in it. (i do not enjoy making eagle logos...nor "patriotic" logos, i just had to do another one not too long ago next time someone asks me to design an eagle logo i'm running the other way.) they wanted the "let's roll" on there too but i'm not going that far....ei ei eiii, I am trying my hardest to make this look good.

    is it legal in the first place to even use the american flag in a logo or do i have to only show part of it or make it more than 60% different?
    the best designs happen when you don't even realize they are there.

    I never thought of that being a problem before. I've seen heaps of logos with flags on them. Besides, if you change the flag, then it's not the flag is it?
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      if you don't mind me asking, what type of company is this for?
      I had an ad to design once where the guys wanted and eagle and a crest on it becasue they wanted tot show the American spirit. I said there are other ways to do it. good luck.

        Totally legal to use a countries flag in logos. We do it all the time.

          Adobe InDesign and a JPG Size
          Hi again,
          For some reason, the jpg that is 1920 px by 680 px does not fit into the Adobe InDesign 1920px by 680px document. When I place the jpg into INDesign it shows up much smaller. I know this...

          Absolutely. There is nothing worse than explaining the color gamut to clients who have fallen in love with the vibrant RGB colors that turn to mud in CMYK. Nothing.

          There are many wacom tablet owners right now that are not working with upgrades. Google and see if yours is one that doesn't have an update. I'm on mac, and I have heard that the Bamboo will not work...

          I thought Adobe bought out the forum to silence all the badmouthing of their brand I've been doing lately.
