    Well, I am currently in my last semester of high school and my designing classes have gotten shorter. I know it sounds petty, but it's truly frustrating not having enough time to practice. Plus, my PC...

    InDesign page numbering

    I'm trying to number pages of a magazine. I have the page numbers set up in my master page, and it's great on pages without images over that part of the page, but how can I make the page numbers go on...

    Ya, if that announcement is meant to build some sort of expectation then I think it worked for me. Because TBH these generic lettershapes are something far less than memorable so I eagerly look forward...

    Your computer specs are fine.

    As already mentioned, it sounds like a network (or server) problem -- especially if everyone is noticing the same thing. For what you've describe you really...

    Hi I'm trying out some ideas for my own brand, the name is isle creative, the rationale being that my country is an island and my business is that of creating great websites and other related media. The attached is what I've come up with, the base being a symbol for the island and upcoming parts symbolising creativity. Sometimes when I look at it it reminds me of the marijuana tree so I'm not too happy about that, I wonder if I might make some adjustment to it that keeps the concept but negates this association. Opinions appreciated.

    I think I've seen something very similar, but can't remember where. I think it was on TV, maybe a broadcasting station name. I wonder has anyone tried writing an algorithm for finding images via a search engine. That would be clever and probably quite an earner.

      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 can see the marijuana leaf, but it's not the first thing I think of. For some reason it reminds me a peacock. Maybe the NBC logo?

            The "plant" reminds me of an agave plant. The overall look feels a bit familiar, but it's nice.

              With regards to the graphic logo, I like it but I think it's lacking balance in some way. Maybe because the leaves are around the top section and there isn't the same distribution around the bottom right and left. Plus, I don't like the different shades of yellow, I feel it would be a stronger icon if you used either the pale one or the bold one, not both. I am unsure as well with regards to the opacity of the leaves, I think it would look stronger if they weren't opaque.

              The "creative" part of the text imo could do with being a bit thinner because it's not contrasting quite enough with the thickness of the "isle" letterforms.

                Here's another approach, do you reckon it works better? I think it looks sharper than the one I had before.

                  MUCH nicer looking. What does the graphic look like larger? Solid colors? Overlapping colors?

                      oooh I like it a lot more than the first. It reminds me of the olympic torch! It would be a VERY expensive and tricky to print though. Have you created a few other versions? I'd love to see how it translates into black and white.

                        It now looks like one of the most professional logos I've come across in the Crit Pit. The only negative point I have is that it doesn't seem appropriate for what you do, i.e. websites, but I still really like how it looks. To me it portrays graphic design, as opposed to web design.

                          we do some graphic design as well so that's not a big problem, im more concerned with creating a logo that looks good, is sharp and gives good vibes to clients seeing it for the first time. The creative element is important (hence use of several colours), dynamic and pushing boundaries (pointed upwards) and technical, precise (use of corners in elements, not rounded)

                            I like the new approach. I don't think your logo needs to scream "web design". Your branding and your website will do that for you.

                              hmm printing is something to consider, do you suggest any specific changes to make it easier for printing?
