    Also, why did you lift your answer directly from this article? You could at least post a link so people can read the entire article. http://www.articlesbase.com/internet...les/custom-pri...

    Why is a "simple" layout important for wide format printing?
    As long as the message is clear, simple doesn't matter.

    Need waaaay more info.
    What kind of print are you selling?
    How big?
    How archival?

    Why not just hire an outside printer to do the work. Will save you hours and hours of headaches,...

  • Western style logo

    Hello,

    dropping of a logo here I'm doing for a restaurant. It is the typical help-out-a-buddy-job.

    I still have some work to do with the details, but please let me know if you see any details that can be changed for the better.

    I do want critics so dont hold back.

    I like this. "Food, Liquor, Fun" looks a little too close to the left. There's more space on the right side.

        What's that strip of 'junk' behind he logo. (ya, buildings in a western town, I know) but why? Too much detail/extraneous text and detracts from the logo itself. The logo works for me without the extras.

          i like it but it still needs some cleaning up. the I and G in big look a little tight. also i think saloon steakhouse would look a lot better if it was hand drawn or changed some to give it more fluid motion. maybe make the letters taller to fill in some space (but don't just stretch the font!) just idea but i like what you've done so far.

          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.

            I think the shape of the bullhorn needs a little work! It's a bit stiff and awkward in shape. Here's one that gives you an idea of what they should look like.

                I would suggest putting diamond glyphs between the food liquor and fun.

                Nice otherwise.

                  You are absolutely right, and I've noticed the 'junk' to, but in some weird way I'm having trouble to listen to myself. And it is there you come in the picture, thank you for telling me, I do sure need it . I also like alot of details for some reason and I know that it is something that I should work alot more with (or less, or, hmm lost focus).

                  i like it but it still needs some cleaning up. the I and G in big look a little tight. also i think saloon steakhouse would look a lot better if it was hand drawn or changed some to give it more fluid motion. maybe make the letters taller to fill in some space (but don't just stretch the font!) just idea but i like what you've done so far.

                  Typically:
                  I've listened to what you've said and put a little more space between 'I' and 'G', I've also cleaned it up a little from details. I've made the 'saloon, steakhouse'-text a little thinner, made some difference but I will also look into some other fonts maybe. I actually searched for "western fonts" and pretty much picked the two first I found. Thank you very much for your input.

                  Cornfed: I've watched the picture in the link below for reference. I'm happy with the form of the horn but I might have to take a look on the shadowing.

                    kinda hard to read. Maybe try taking out the middle flourishes in the smaller letters? Kerning in 'street' needs an overhaul, well, all over really.

                        I'm liking it more with the diamonds between the Food Liquor Fun area. The 'stuff' behind the logo looks like boats in the first image. I do like the idea of it, but it does clutter like PD said. They may be useful in other areas at some point.

                        Western fonts are a pain for me, they are either too much, or too little. Big Street is ok to me, but it does look a tad 'thick' in the street part. That, and the straight line on that "G" just doesn't seem right.

                          Hi,

                          i'm a newbie round these parts, so i hope u dont mind me inputting

                          I'm liking the logo, but am wondering, rather than making the text taller to fill space, could'nt you leave as is, but reduce the height of the brown block shape in the background?

                          Just an idea

                          Mike

                            i think you salon and steakhouse could flow a bit better. something makes it look weird...maybe play with the placement of one of the words.
                            Its not "Mitch-ed" stupid....its Me-Show.

                              I like the overall look, but you have some strange negative space and hierarchy issues (IMO).

                              In your current version, saloon and steakhouse are as larger as your "tagline": Food, Liquor, Fun. Have you tried something more straightforward and centered, like this. (And yes, I know I mistyped Saloon ...). Just a thought.
