    I think the monogram logo is complicated enough. It's nice, but complicated. You don't need the heart shapes at all.

    Who have you been overridden by? Can you say on the record that the text is too small?

    I often do this if I'm working with a difficult client. At least when the job is printed, and the client...

  • Art catalog c&c NSFW

    I was wondering if I could get some c&c on this draft for an art catalog. The idea is that every chapter (or collection) has it's own accent color and starts with a line drawing+introduction.

    I couldn't figure out how to embed the pdf, so view it here.

    Thanks guys!

    Disclaimer: Some of the text is lorem ipsum'd, some is Dutch. Either way, you probably can't read it. Which is probably better for crit purposes.

    edit: It only has some sample pages, nothing final or complete yet.

    It would be best to supply JPGs and embed them in the forum using the

    You would need to host the images somewhere and copy the link to the URL dialog box - somewhere like tinypic or imageshack or something.

    I don't think too many people would open the PDF from an "unknown source".

      Issuu.com is a pretty cool service though, hosts pdf's like tinypic does images. But I would upload it in images, if I knew a good way to export from InDesign. And I can't add the pdf as attachment here, cause it's way bigger than 19.5kb. I uploaded the pdf to my dropbox, which probably isn't any more trustworthy, but here you go.

          Found the problem, the colors looked all weird to me, but I was exporting to CMYK JPGs. RGB seems to work.

              I think the overall design looks pretty good. The multi-color lines are a little rough in places and could stand to be smoothed out, but other than that I like it.

                    Can't find the edit button anymore, was there a minute ago. Strange.

                      woah! you gotta put a NSFW notice up, some people are at work and even painted boobs will get them in trouble. I added it to the title

                      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 kinda rolled into a graphic design position here at work, and I love it now. So I've been doing my best to learn on my own. Took a few short courses as well, but never had a formal education.

                              Anyhow, no. This will actually be printed and used.
