    I like the overall aesthetic too. Along with the things commented on by the others, I also notice that numbering under "EFFC Acomplisments" does not align with the top of paragraphs, and seems...

    As I mentioned in a post just recently I nearly always have the client get their hands on some pantone books and have them choose the colors themselves. If they are local they can look at mine, if they...

    Thanks Buda. I don't know what text will go on the front. Unfortunately, I don't have a wide selection of photos to choose from so I chose one that was telling the end goal of charter school education....

    This whole question is making my head explode.

    There are millions of RGB combinations. There are only 3000-and-change Pantone colors.
    What do you have as a reference for the RGB values....

  • New Windows Logo

    Recently i've been reading how a lot of people including designers really hate the new Windows 8 logo. While others have said that it works only under the brand strategy and in context.

    Info:
    Article 1
    Article 2

    I thought they did a pretty good job, works with the new metro interface, what do you guys think?

    Don't love or hate it - it's a simple logo. Probably way overpaid for it. But at least it wasn't crowdsourced.

    There was a thread about this ages ago?

    Anyway - Windows is such an established brand name that it doesn't need to dress itself up in shiny 2.0 graphics with drop shadows and gradients.

    There's plenty of things out there that claim other logos ripped off Windows other Colourful Windows logo - like Google Chrome for example.




    Who can blame them for going for something that nobody would want to rip off?

      This new logo means nothing to me. It doesn't scream "Windows!" the way the four-colored blocks do and quite honestly says, "we're going to our enterprise users and forget the rest of you." "You want to play games? Go to another platform." :You want to work with audio/video? Go to another platform." "We know where we're wanted and that's who we're focusing on from here out.
      That's what the new 'old' logo says to me.
