    Comment on 7pt. Font size is industry standard for body text?
    It was more than just putting up with a less knowledgeable person. She wanted to control everything and do it all her way. Much of what she said is so over the top wrong that it just baffles me and tried...

    Cool idea! I'm actually working on a blog myself. Just some advice that was given to me by someone who studies journalism is to have a years worth of content ready. So if it's a weekly blog, have no less...

    I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

    There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

    I would never hand over the work to an untrustworthy client without getting payment. You let this happen.

  • holy s#$t , another self branding logo

    hello...its been a few years since i have posted anything, so here you go

    My business: mainly brand identity and some print and web stuff.

    i am my own worst client!!! i am constantly reworking my logo.... i have come up with one concept i like the best but i am having a hard time nailing a font down. what do you think of the logo? and which font do you think works the best?

    also the concept behind the logo is a "tinroof" shanty...

    The first one, but I like the colour of the second one.

      Not the script face.

        lol when i first read it i thought of the B-52 song Love Shack if i had to pick from those i'd say the second one... def not the script

        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 thought it was a logo for a roofing business.
            I like the first one the best, but I think you can do better.

              I didn't think roofing, but it does make me think real estate when I look at the icon. Plus when I think of a tin roof shanty, all I can picture is 3rd world country type stuff.

              Not exactly something I'd want my business thought of as/associated with.

                It looks like a really nice building logo. I don't think designer that's for sure.

                Will you have studio or design with this logo?

                  did anybody see the "10" in the logo?


                  • #10
                    I like the first font, definitely stay away from the script.

                    I saw the 10, but it still makes me think of a building/real estate company more than a designer. The strokes in the icon are looking a tiny bit chunky to me as well, and the small space between the 1 and the 0 might be a problem if the logo is scaled down?

                        heartburn.... because i couldnt call it "tin roof s*%t house" and was taken so i figured i would change it up a little.. i dont believe that i need to name my company after my lastname of some other stuffy sounding name. i can do outstanding work from anywhere and my office right now is no better than a "tin roof s*%t house"... i also think it is catchy

                          If you're set on the name, maybe add "Tenroof Graphic Design" or something similar?

                            It's nice but forced. It looks more like a stool falling off a box than a tin roof. You obviously have a talent but don't mispresent it because you can't quite be bothered to marry title and image.
