Sometimes you need to zoom way in in order to create space between points. Sometimes you need to lock shapes and lines in order to work over them. Sometimes you need to put things on different layers...
Having started designing solely with Photoshop and finally migrating to Illustrator I'm still struggling with some things in Illustrator that seem really basic from the surface.
I'm really struggling...
Need some input on this logo concept. The client suggested the R in the name be shaped like a boot. I thought about doing something totally different (maybe a 'roof' above part of the name or something). Is this on the mark at all? Which boot do y'all like better? Thanks!
When I buy stickers for folks in prison, I bring milk not backyard meth - it's a prison party!
It reads "anchstead". I don't think the boot as an R is going to work unless you make it really obvious - and even then there's a big chance it's just going to look tacky and predictable. The R reminds me of an elephant.
Personally, I'd concentrate on the type. The uppercase cowboy look seems to fit quite well and wouldn't need much to go with it as it looks like it belongs on the front gate of a ranch. I'd find a nicer font though.
In regards to the font, I'd just make sure that you aren't using fonts that are, A. Overused, B. Tacky, C. Not licensed for commercial use.
I agree that the boot isn't really working. Perhaps trying out some sketches to see if you can work with the R in a different way.
Also I find (as holycow says) that your type is not that interesting. It's kinda dull right now...

I always visualize these things hanging over a gated entry.
Somehow this just seems too clean, static, and, well... girly... for a ranch.
Does this ranch do something? Is it a dude ranch, a cattle ranch, a horse ranch, a private ranch that doesn't raise stock?
