    Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I see what you're saying that the way it's designed makes it look like it could represent a variety of things. I do like the flow of the logo though, so I think I will redesign it to still reflect that. It seems from what you're saying is to make it more obvious that I'm showing an "S" and a "D".

    Lastly, I didn't use Times as a font. I can't remember the name right now, but it wasn't that.

      ok, oh well, that doesn't matter I was just taking a shot in the dark, I'm not always the best at guessing my fonts. Just stating that it was a really straightforward, boring font. :/.

          What is the purpose of the drop shadow? If you want something "clean and simple" why would you throw in something as meaningless as a drop shadow?
          I see what you mean about adding useless things to clutter the design. Thanks for the feedback, it really is appreciated, even if it's that my work is horrible. :P

            I wish people didn't feel the need to post their thoughts and feelings on the internet.
            (kind of an ironic statement there).
            But, if someone is just starting design as a 'hobby', what observations can possibly be made that would benefit anyone else except the creator of the blog?

            (I'm not getting this younger generation. Actually I get it, but this constant need to share everything is going to be one big technological downfall...)

              Well that's kind of the point, isn't it? Say I didn't share my things, for example, I'd still be using my logo I created instead of trying to amend/change/redo it, and it's all because of everyone's feedback.

              Sharing things isn't particularly a bad thing, and you should be able to start anything you want as a hobby.

                As long as you don't start charging money for it under the pretext of Professional design, sure.

                I've often wondered where a logo would turn out if all the advice given here was followed.
                Or what would happen if Milton Glaser posted a logo anonymously. LOL.

                  Yeah I know that. I definitely won't be charging for my creations, since I'm not even close to a professional.

                    Not a bad effort in my opinion. Needs to be cleaned up a lot though and a lot more work needed. Work on the logo - Definitely drop the shadow. (I apply shadows only when requested and usually with a tear in my eye). The fonts need some more thought too. Basically every element needs attention....
                    Never trust someone, who, if left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesnt try it on..

                      I gotta say, I'm with PD here.

                      It doesn't feel like you're in this for the long haul. It's like you've gone to a lot of effort to do anything but actually learn design. It's arse about tit. Will there be some actual studying going on? You know, with classes. Or will it just be a big folder with internet feedback?

                        Your logo contradicts itself. There's nothing simplistic about shoehorning two letters into a weird shape.

                          I still don't understand why anyone thinks graphic design is a "hobby". If you want to make art for yourself, that's fine, that's a hobby. But don't give anything away for free. As for your logo, get your sketchpad out, and do some brainstorming.

                            Hello, have you met etsy? People start with scrapbooking, then a friend asks for a "logo," and suddenly they're making greeting cards for an etsy store.

                            These people call it a hobby because it's not a primary job, they most likely don't pay any taxes related to what they create, and when they think of "professional designers," they think of Mad Men and other such agency shinola.
