    Brand evolution with complex logo content

    Hi! I work for a 40+ year old company that has had a pretty static brand. The logo incorporates a family crest that goes back hundreds of years. It is very complicated, lots of elements (lions, chains,...

  • Photography logo help...

    Hey everyone!
    I'm making a logo for a lady in my church, who is setting up her own photography business. I posted some designs a while ago that she liked. But she just sent me links to designs that she likes.

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/76429739...ref=v1_other_2

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/56446403...emade-logo-dot

    She would like me to make something similar to these...she loves the dotted border. I, however, have no clue as how to make a dotted border. I've looked up dotted border brushes, but nothing is showing up.

    I was wondering if anyone happened to have some tutorials, links, or advice, on how to make a dotted border similar to these?

    Thanks!
    Peach

    (I use Photoshop CS5, if that helps any...)

    Use Illustrator to create vector art when making logos.

    PHOTOshop is for editing PHOTOS.

      1. Close Photoshop
      2. Open Illustrator
      3. Make a box, assign it a dotted border.
      4. Profit


      But, I'm not sure if I agree with someone finding a logo for sale online, then sending it to someone and saying "recreate this for me". Seems like if she found a logo she liked, she would purchase it from the person that created it.

      Oh, and wow the kerning on that first one makes me cry...

        As Garricks said, use Illustrator to create a vector logo. Dotted lines are easy in Illustrator not so easy in Photoshop.

        As for dotted lines and the referenced examples, despite what the client likes, they don't say "photography" to me. Instead, they look like home handicrafts or sewing logos. Of course it'll be her logo, so she has to like it, but still, I'd be presenting some alternatives to her for consideration, along with the logic for doing so.

        That screamed out at me as well. I also wondered why anyone would choose a typeface like that. It's such a casual, klunky, and informal handwritten face, that it would have been better to just draw the letters and avoid the duplication of the characters within the name.

          To me it looks like the logo on every cupcake shop that is popping up on every corner...

            Agreed. Whenever it makes sense to do it by hand, by all means do it by hand. It makes the finished product so much more unique and interesting.

              Of course, that is a $30 logo, which is " provided in JPG/PNG format at 300dpi (perfect for printing needs as well!)", so....

                Maybe her last name is St. Ewert?

                I like this on the second one:
                Please note this is not OOAK Design (one of a kind) and this logo will be resold a limited number of times.
                If you want to make any type of changes in the text or colors they are available for an extra fee.
                Yeah, that makes it a logo...

                However, from the OP it sounds like these are just examples of similar items and the OP is to come up with something entirely different but in the same genre. Just not in Photoshop please. Thank you.

                  Given that a successful career in photography would usually require a certain amount of taste and compositional skills, it seems odd that this photographer would be drawn to a cheesy $30 cupcakey embroidery pattern. I mean, she actually ran across this awful logo and said to herself, "That's just the look I want for myself." I don't get it.
