  • Personal Logo Critique

    I am a graphic design student looking to put myself out there as a young professional. I want to communicate maturity and skill in graphic design. I have a strong interest in typography and also wanted to show that through my logo.

    What do you all think?

    for me the shifting baseline and x height is a little jolting, its almost like the words are crashing together. sort of chaotic. Kind of clashes with the elegant typeface you've chosen.

      Yep - its really hard to read.

      You could do a nice wordmark with this typeface though. You could do one where the descender of the y in Mandy is positioned next to the ascender of the b in Ebert, for instance.

        I'll echo what others have said. I like the idea, but not the execution. Too hard to read.

        And, honestly, I wouldn't expect someone with a love of typography to be distorting the letters in a typeface...

          It feels to chaotic to be designed by a designer. The font used with it's semi-fancy serifs does not really suit the chaotic design either. Try improving the logo working with grids and alignment. Good luck!

            I get young from it, but perhaps too young for it to be professional. Feels more like a logo for a clothing or cosmetic line aimed for tweens.

                Is the M backwards?

                  ^That's what I was thinking too. Very awkward.

                    It reads craft/hobby/etsy/scrap booking to me.

                      I don't really like the random geometric shape around the text. It doesn't add anything to the logo and it creates some awkward negative space at the top.

                          Is 'etsy' becoming an adjective, like 'Google' has become a verb?

                            Frankly, it was easier and read better than "crafty/hobbyish/etsyish/scrap-booky."

                                Thank you so much! And you were right, I actually didn't understand the question properly.

                                Most places would want you to have the bleed not on the artboard so when the ad is placed, only the ad shows, not all the bleed. If you have the bleed on the artboard, you risk having your art offset...
