    I really like this new concept, it definitely speaks "messenger" to me. At first I didn't know how to feel about the backwards e but realized it looks good because it's like they are facing...

    Reply to Steampunk Tea Brand Logo Critique- Trying to choose final concept
    I would say J2 is working the best so far, I like that logo. I would just try and find a matching typeface that goes with it, or maybe even the same font, for using on the name below the emblem/pictoral...

    I would tread carefully.

    No one here is going to be actively encouraging a student to freelance. It's usually education first, internship, a few years of full time design work before freelancing....

    Never underestimate the use of keyboard shortcuts. Even though this might be something like a prerequisite to getting a job in design, make sure you know all the most used shortcuts. Also know the tool...

    I guess it is weird that they have a coding team. The original message actually just says they "have a team who can code." It's not a big/successful business, they founded it a year ago, but...

  • what is a benchmark, really.

    I just submitted these first round of logos to the People at Bench Mark Title.
    Since they haven't gotten back to me, I'd thought I'd gather your opions to tide me over till I hear back from them.

    I like #1 the best, possibly with out the rule under "benchmark." It looks the most clean and elegant. The others seem too busy to me.

      Aren't bench marks little circular things that go on the ground, for surveyors to use as reference points? I could be wrong!?!

        #1 is working...but not sold on it. I dig the vibe of #7 as well. Maybe if you move the triangle to where the A is in Mark, that might work. Keep us posted!

          I like no. 1 as it stands right now but think no. 7 has some promise to be all that no. 1 is and then some.

            #1 reminds me of Prudential Finacial (google it). Other then that the last one is on the bottom right is the best IMO. It simple and to the point. And I like how the mountian comes to a point at the end of benchmark.

              I'm liking #7. seems to work nice and I can picture it on a bunch of crap.

              but what does this company do?

                Number one without the line underneath. Number five might have possibilities with a different font.

                    number five catched my atention, and the colors are greats and shape too.

                    Good work

                      Thanks for all the input. I'll keep you posted and let you know what they say.

                        The graph relates back to 'benchmark' well, aesthetically its not really doing it for me though, but has potential.

                        Good Luck
