    Thanks, much appreciated encouragement there.

    seamas: I appreciate the suggestions on where to look for more influence. A challenge I keep running into is finding a typeface that is professional and clear for a logo, but still has a steampunk look....

    I really like this new concept, it definitely speaks "messenger" to me. At first I didn't know how to feel about the backwards e but realized it looks good because it's like they are facing...

    I would say J2 is working the best so far, I like that logo. I would just try and find a matching typeface that goes with it, or maybe even the same font, for using on the name below the emblem/pictoral...

    I would tread carefully.

    No one here is going to be actively encouraging a student to freelance. It's usually education first, internship, a few years of full time design work before freelancing....

  • Personal Logo - rough sketch

    Lately I've been trying to create a logo for myself. I had a whole slew of sketches but misplaced them. However, I remember this being one of the ones I liked more, and I thought I would post it to get some criticism until I find my other sketches.

    My plan was to incorporate my initials JPS into the logo.



    The S definitely needs some work. Do you think this is a concept is strong enough to continue to pursue? Sorry again for only the one sketch... I think it's time I get a bit more organized.

    I read JPS without any problems. Looks fresh and modern, I say go after it.

      i saw JDS to start with, maybe extend the decenderof the p? it might look better when vectorised! Give it a go

        I don't think its a good concept but it is aesthetically pleasing and a nice use of typography. Not everything requires some type of in your face ingenious concept. Sometimes its just a matter of rolling with a nice aesthetic and that looks like the case here.

          I think if when you tidy it up it will be first class.

            I think this is good enough to start to vectorise and maybe try a few different fonts.

              +1 ... time to get it vectorised and let's have another look.

              Nice concept.

                Maybe I'm a bit thick but it's, in order, bad, good, uninspiring, and looks nice?

                      Its not a concept but a composition. The composition itself is nice in terms of aesthetics and memorability. However, the logo itself lacks any concept beyond a literal play with figure and ground relationships. A concept is an abstract idea and there is no abstracted idea here, its very literal. Nice to look at… but literal none the less. That doesn't make it bad though. The OP though asked whether it was a good concept and its not considering there is no concept.

                        The concept could be the P. Something along the lines of illusion, making meaning out of nothing (white space). Recognising something obscure...

                            Hey tZ, thanks for your comments. I'll be honest and say that I didn't think too much about the word concept when I used it. But I see where you're coming from now that you've mentioned it. I'll definitely be keeping it in mind when I try out some other ideas with this logo.

                            I appreciate all of the other comments as well. I'll head to the computer this week and hope to post it sometime in the later half of the week.

                              Here's an update.



                              I know it's not done yet, but I'm struggling over this S. While I work on it, I was going to ask if you think the letters and spacing are okay.

                              I'm a bit worried that the S is going to look too different from the other letters to work.
