    Are you the designer, the printer, the merchant or all of them? A designer doesn't typically base fees on the number that will be printed. A printer, on the other hand, does do that. Even when a designer...

    Retail vs Contract Pricing

    Looking for some input on this matter.

    Many years ago we published a map for railroad enthusiasts that was 1/1 black and folded several times into 3.5" by 9". Nothing all that...

    Better photo, but flip it so the eye travels left to right. Having on the left side it kind of stops the eye there.

    Have you not learned about line lengths? This is about 88 characters long....

    So I got the new SSD and it's amazing. It fits in the palm of my hand but so much speed compared to my old one. Here's some graphs of before and after (keep in mind it was a buggy 5 year old drive):...

    It's an interesting-looking graphic, but for the reasons already mentioned, it doesn't really meet the usual requirements of a logo. I'm not a big fan of Lobster either, but that's just me.

    Maybe it's too bland or lacking something. I wanna hear your opinion.

      Vary your line weight, gradients on both the toon and the background or no gradients at all; the styles clash too much otherwise. Typography could use a boost as well as it's plain compared to the work done on the rest of the elements.
      In life there are a lot of grey areas; not in the conception phase of logo design.

      When a person asks you to do work for nothing in return, they are saying to your face, "You're worthless but useful to me."

      Shall is a direct command whereas the verb will is a prophecy of the future.

        This is just me, but I find it a tiny bit bland. Maybe change the radial gradient to something else?
        If not, perhaps move it behind his head?

        Also the type, you could do all sorts there. Maybe add some colour and play with some fonts?

          How long did you spend on this before thinking it was a good idea to post it here? It's a personal piece, so at the end of the day if you're happy with it, that's all that matters.

          It is bland and fairly boring if I'm being honest. I don't really know what it's supposed to mean, or why there is gradient curve in the background with a radial gradient behind it.

          Try different fonts, try different colours. Atleast make it look like you were bothered to draw it out to begin with.

            Not a lot to critique. A banner isn't communicating a message. It's just supposed to look good. If you think it looks good, then go with it.

            I will say your kerning is still off. And, just looking at this I'd have no idea what it was for...

              I think you need to give that "swoosh" more breathing room.

              You have it (and the devil's chin and horns) coming right to the edge. Makes for an awkward composition.

              Either have it get some space around the edge or have the swoosh go beyond the picture boundary.


              PS: Are those supposed to be ears on the sides of the devil's head?


              Consider a different treatment for the eyes. The all-whhite isn't working.

              Also the points of the horns should be blunted just ever so much. Look at actual animal horns.
