    Well I dunno, but when I think of simple, I think of less. Two letters vs 1 that incorporates both elements together. I think the logo is actually more simplistic. BUT, I do realize that the logo does need a lot of work. I don't deny that.

    To the others that have been critiquing, I feel that I have not fully explained myself and you guys seem to be assuming things. First of all, I am NOT a professional designer. I am not close to one and I won't be for a while. Second, I fear that I have mislabeled myself. When I refer to "graphic design", I mean anything related to digital visual creation. I am sorry for this, that is most entirely my fault.

    What my blog IS for, is for the wide variety of things I do: wallpapers, some logos possibly and things like that. I just want to share my content, I'm not really looking to sell anything or services (Not like anyone would want them anyway). What I DID want to do is design a logo for my blog so that it can look more complete. And no I would really rather not have someone else create one.

    Now that I got that out of the way, these are some things I think will have to happen for my design:

    -Most definitely rework the logo.
    -I think one thing that could POSSIBLY be a problem is the name. Perhaps I should consider something else so I don't seem like a branding design website?

    Lastly, I would just like to say, while I appreciate all of your criticism, could you please lighten up on some thing when you act as if I should know everything. I am just starting out, and I'm learning new things, so I won't know everything about typefaces and such, so please don't be hard on me for things like that.

    Thanks guys (And girls if there are any)

      "less" comes in many forms, you appear to be thinking less quantity, but less complexity is what you should be after
      Design is not decoration.

        I know what you're saying, but if you think about the concept itself, I would think it wouldn't be that complex.

        Anyway, I think I'm just going to restart the whole process. I'll be able to at least know which way I should go about my design, and think about all of the different ways my logo could be perceived. I think that's what you're all trying to get at, correct?

          Among many other things, consider the color of your font.

          Helpful comments -- thanks to all of you. My advice to my friend was to try CC for the trial period, then decide on CC or version 6. A bit stubbornly (in my opinion) she is holding out for now and searching...

          Comment on Charge Tax on Top of Flat Rate?

          Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

          If you live in a place that requires that you collect sales tax on graphic design services, it really doesn't matter how you bill your clients as long as the tax is collected and paid. If you want to...

          I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

          Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....
