    Going for the hipster aesthetic is about minimalism, which in itself is about good placement. So you have the basic elements right - Trade Gothic, 'est.'script font, circular holding shape, business emblem....

    Brilliant work. For how long have you been a graphics designer? Did you have a mentor?

    I'm mostly just curious, but you're apparently from Korea, yet your work is primarily in English. Is that common?

    As for your work, I like it. The warm, dark reds, browns and amber hues have...

    As was said earlier... some skateboard identities are grungey.. some are cleaner. Almost all are playful and none are feminine.

    Here are some of the cleaner ones I could think of off the top of my head. All playful and youthful. Just saying the logo could work for something like snowboards, but you'd be better off sticking to that spectrum and not trying to make an umbrella identity like DC.

      Does breaking off the "t" from the bird ruin the flow too much?

        I don't feel it ruins it, no. At least this way I could see the elements as a detached unit working independently as you preferred previously (I still like it as one mark). There's some kerning issues I'm just noticing between your R and the EST.

          Is this better?

            The C overpowers the design in my opinion. Can you try to work the bird into the C?

              If the bird is on the left the entire thing will fall tilt from inbalance, imo.

                I know not everyone is going to agree 100%. I don't really think it looks feminine personally. And the bird symbol would work well for skateboards I think.

                  The thicker stroke width definitely helps make it less dainty, and makes it fit in line with the symbol better. I'm not crazy about the green.

                    I think you need to cut the finial on C. The way it connects with the "r" is just awkward. Th might be what is throwing me off.

                      I like it a lot. You can tweak this and that until doomsday but I think it is good to go.

                          Haha ok, well one last major change:



                          I know the C needs tweaking a bit on the second one, but does it work better than the first?

                          (also, the colour isn't a final one)

                            Yes, the stroke's weight is more consistent with the rest now. However, you might want to study how the strokes would look if actually drawn with a round (i.e. pointed) pointed brush; you might find a way to connect the C and r that looks more natural.

                              I think the thicker stroke on the Type and losing the Crown really helped the logo. But, I do think there's something strange going on where the bird meets the "t". The negative space of the bird and the "t" beside it really aren't working for me. Others may disagree, but I think you really need to focus on where the Bird meets the Type.

                              I too, kind of see a skateboarder in the negative space of the bird, but I also kind of see a "t". I wonder how it would look if you removed the "t" from the type, and shaped the negative space of the bird more like a "t"? Not sure how that would work, I'm just throwing in ideas.

                                Aw, I liked it better before the last set of changes.

                                :sigh: Once more I see the crit pit turn cool and original logos into boring generic logos trying to please a bunch of random critiquers.
