  • Business card logo

    Hi everyone, this is my first crit.

    as you can see below Innate means something your born with in my case being creative this is what i have been working on after about 14 pages of pencil scribbles trying to come up with a name then putting it all together. dont worry about the word creative in the logo its more the inn8 if it is readable and if you get it.

    would love some feed back, good or bad,

    Thank you very much in advance guys

    2. inherent in the essential character of something: an innate defect in the hypothesis.

      I think he/she is trying to use the 8 for the a-t-e part. Inneight for Innate.

        I read this as "ing" at first glance, too. I don't think I would have seen "Innate" unless you had spelled it out in your post.

        Who is your target market? Would you say that you are seeking conservative, traditional businesses as clients or a younger leet-speaking crowd (perhaps bands needing cd covers and whatnot)?

        Your logo should appeal to your target audience.

          I think you need a bit more of your self-heralded creativity. Although it would make a great snorkling logo.

            Using numbers as part of words has been done to death.

              If I hadn't read the word 'innate' in your post I would not have known that's what your card was supposed to say. I saw 'inoo' before I saw the 'ing' that everyone else seems to be seeing.

                  I thought you were trying to write innovate. I think losing one N and placing IN better would make this an interesting logo.

                    I also saw ING at first, but it unfortunately also reminds me of the "OGC" logo tragedy from a couple years ago. Below, left as it appears on letterhead; right, as it appears when you tilt your head to the left.

                    This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

                      Blogs and YouTube tutorials can only get you so far. Most of them just teach you how to make one really specific design.

                      I agree with PD that these tutorials can result in bad habits like...

                      this was probably done in a signware rather than illustrator. The sign making softwares out there handle making an extrusion like that far better than Illustrator.

                      I definitely prefer the fifth one. But to be true, I understood what the initials are only after reading your message. Though, when I saw the second one, I've thought about RH. I think you need to work...
