    That's exactly the method we use to prepare our slides, like a billboard.

    Reply to Retail vs Contract Pricing
    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....

    is this better?

      I'm pretty sure that's exactly the same thing minus the circle border and a slightly different font, but adding in a superfluous drop shadow. You're kind of ignoring the large quantity of advice given.

        My professor is so incredibly vague about so much; criticizing without justification and not giving guidance. Would you believe. we have never even had a lab class. All our class time is lecture and all our work is done at home "on the computer". I wish I knew about sketching and the entire preliminary process.

        @sketcher. sounds like you had a priceless professor.

          @VDM: I am not ignoring any any information. I came here to learn.

          please keep in mind the time sequence: the advice given was not read until I just now returned posting the revision.
          Please give me the benefit of doubt and I promise I won't disappoint you.

              95% of the work involved in creating a logo is research, notes and preliminary concept sketches.

              Get away from the computer and quickly try to capture "unforgettable" in as many ways as possible. Ask yourself what its unforgettable? Is it a tattoo? Is it branded flesh? Is it a photograph? How do we make things unforgettable? Etc

                  @KemingMatters. I wish I had the time to start all over but, pls understand, that is not realistic. there is no time this week
                  I am taking other classes: a video editing final project due on Wed. {2 days} on top of this assignment. However, I appreciate your advice and will follow it AFTER these finals when I can give them my full attention. thank you for understanding.

                    For now, I'm just doing the best I can with what I have

                      I understand you have no time to make huge revisions on this, believe me im in that boat all the time. I go to college for this too so i know what its like.

                      My advice is to get this thing to the point where your professor is happy with it, as he/she is the one giving you the grade. then keeping this close, go back and apply the proper changes given to you in the advice on here.


                      • #26
                        No time, lol, just wait until you are not in school. Turn around time can be a few hours on some jobs, sure you get to crank up the price for deadlines that tight, but they do exist.

                        The question is, how badly do you want this?

                          Hopefully, by then, I'll know more then I do now!

                          @inifinity: thank you for your wisdom and keeping what's important in proper perspective. Greatly appreciated.
                          The idea here is beautiful colorful ideas are flying out of my head so I'm not sure how else to portray that.,
                          at the risk of sounding like a dunce I wish I understood the advice & how to achieve the proper changes better.

                          It's me!

                            #6 The idea is an Explosion of colorful ideas coming from my head
                            but I'm not sure out to outline the face and still keep the "O" clear.
                            Any suggestions?

                              In all honesty, I think your school, or more your class, is kind of screwing you over having you do a logo design for a final in a design fundamentals class. a class like that should be just that, FUNDAMENTALS. you should be learning the basics of design. if I remember correctly, my final for my fundamentals class was a capstone project. we had to take a previously made picture, and incorporate it into some picture, and it was all done by drawing it. pencils pens. I didn start using software till i started getting into the classes geared to learning the software itself. and even then we were doing silly little projects to get us used to the tools within the apps.

                              basically i said all that to say this, you putting this logo up here and not understanding fully what were talking about, and not being able to fully correct the mistakes are understandable, as (with all do respect) you have no sense of the basics of a logo. or even design for that matter (i cant say fully as i dont know you or how far in college you are).

                                what if you put the face in the "o" then using the pathfinder, select the button that deletes the front (making sure the face is over the "o") itll remove the face, and leave the faces impression inside the "o" allowing us to see the outer edges of the "o" but also giving the illusion of the face.
