    Reply to Feedback for Tea Shop logo?

    Of the 6, the top-left is the easy winner, IMO. I see a cup of tea in it (under it, actually), but at the same time, it's charmingly cryptic, floral, and symbolic looking. Iconic. Nice. Would look great...

    Why don't you contact the source of the one that did work and ask about an update?

    Do your design in grayscale in photoshop, then upload it to RasterBator (it's a legit site.)

    They also have a standalone app if you have a PC that will run it.

    It works for me here in InDesign CS6 and later, and I'm pretty sure the feature was around long before that. The top object must already be selected, then holding down Ctrl/Cmd, click again.

    That's called "reticulation." Photoshop has a filter for that in the Sketch group: Filter > Filter Gallery > Sketch > Reticulation (path varies with Photoshop version)

  • Bookmarking site logo



    Hi guys, need a bit of crit and feedback on the above logo.

    I am developing a bookmark collecting website as my university project.
    I though that the tentacle is a good representation of someting that gabs and snatches, and a peeled banana as a representation of quality content.
    Do you think the logo works?

    Comments on the name and layout are also welcome.

      So the emphasis on grabbing just the edible inside of the banana, not the skin, does not suggest you to expect a certain standard of content?

                  Banana skin? I thought it was a banana peel.

                    Banana skin seems to be as valid http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl...=f&oq=&start=0

                    I like the way it rhymes with "links"

                      Emma Peel, I could understand. But banana peel? Doesn't say "quality" to me.

                        Grabbing a book might make more sense than a banana.

                        Or an octopus reading a book.

                        Or an octopus in a jar. (links in one container?)

                          Skins doesn't rhyme with links.

                            looks like the identical is getting frisky with the banana

                            i think banana peel rather than skin also but i'm in the US it might be different on your side of the pond.

                              links skins...similar letters NOT similar sound.

                              I too thought the tentacle looked like it was -hmmmm- pulling the banana, so to speak.

                              And tentacle and testicle do rhyme.
