      If you're working in English, you might want to work on developing some spelling 'accellence'.

        that's just the basics virgo, i wanna be accellent! specifically ebook logos

        "There's something about turning the pages of a book or magazine and the felling of rubbing your hands across the words."

        This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

        there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

          Well anything ebook related is going to be a totally separate can of worms.

              OK, give it a rest. We know English isn't the OP's first language. No reason to make fun. I'd like to hear you guys speak Bengali perfectly.

                I wasn't trying to be facetious -- a lot of service work (including graphic design) is being shipped overseas to markets where the wages are much, much lower. If this is the kind of shop or market that the OP is hoping to get into, spelling is going to be nearly a make or break as far as earning the client's (and possibly the employer's) trust.

                  Many years of practice, good people skills, and a burning interest in learning every detail of whatever industry you happen to be designing for. There are no shortcuts.

                        You don't have to master Illustrator or photoshop or Indesign.
                        Being a master at using tools doesn't make you a carpenter if you don't know how to BUILD the house you've been contracted to build.

                        Learn the theory. Then use the tools to apply the theory.

                            Heck, English IS my first (and unfortunately only) language and I'm an absoultely horrible speller. I couldn't even imagine how bad my spelling would be in a 2nd language.

                            I've got major respect for anyone that is able to learn multiple languages.

                              I think it has a bit to do with being vigilant about spelling. The more you start to 'care' about spelling, the more you'll notice errors in spelling and grammar.

                              Lol Accelent is an actual company.

                              There isnt much else to say until OP posts again.

                                If you've looked into fair use and still don't know the answer, I would recommend you speak to a lawyer. If the artist asks you to take their work down, the polite thing to do is take it down. If, however,...

                                People will take advantage of you, if you let them. Don't do free work, don't volunteer for any business, unless you are paid on the clock.

                                All of the line weights are the same. I'd do some more thinking about the sound being the same weight as the CF.
                                Is it a political lobbying group? or a political action group. I don't normally associate...
