  • Getting started tablet

    I've been looking into investing in a drawing tablet for my macbook. I don't want anything super nice or expensive since im not very experienced, so my price range is less than $100 (preferably more like $50). I've done some research and many people seem to think wacom's are the best drawing tablets, and they have their bamboo tablet that seems to be pretty good for what I'm looking for, but I just wanted to know some experienced opinions. Would this be a good tablet to get? Or is there a better one in the same price range I should look into? I know it only has 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, which seemed to be lower than many other tablets I've been looking at, so is that really a big deal? Or would it even be something a novice would notice? Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated

      I think what's off balance with the Royal Bank logo is the kerning. It's all over the place, especially between the 'Y' and the 'A'.

      To the OP: Looking closer at your other logos, kerning...

      PD, thanks for the link. Will read up on SM vs TM.

      Regarding the logos -- no, I'm not opposed to the first, offsetting the "P." Curiously, I don't think it's so bad when I mock...

      Here's the thing with some clients. They find fonts. Sometimes in weird and sometimes not so savory places.

      There are literally hundreds of high quality stock photo sites out there.
      As well as font sites.
      There are also lots of sites related to car wrap art that have ''cool stuff.''
