first impressions: 1. take the text off its arc path and have it sitting parallel to the other text. it upsets the balance of the piece 2. tidy up the logo itself, (unless its the compression algorithm) make the logo symmetrical! (through a vertical plane). The line between the 2nd and 3rd quadrant is crooked as is the line separating the 3rd and 4th and the larger text doesn't seem horizontal . Guides and rulers are an invaluable tool!
Be careful using text aliasing also.
BTW what software are you using?
edit: sorry about the above! there is a positive: the colour is good! gold for bendigo is always good.
edit: just checked the text with a ruler in photoshop and the reason your text look crooked is because its antialiased (optical illusion), probly because you used jpg compression (dont), use gif or png formats for this type of logo on the web. Your logo is definitely off (possibly compression?):
i woul dlose the tag if possible. if not, like cjoe said, run it parallel under neath the block text or as a underline under the whole logo. top and bottom justify the text so that it make aligns with the top/bottom of the graphic.
I like the graphic and colors. just a few tweaks and you'll be golden!
I don't get why you would have a different color ribbon than the bow. A bow like that is usually tied from the same ribbon that seals the box. It just looks odd. Notice the photo of the box in the banner...
Well to be 100% the money is not important to me. Granted I want to be able to live as comfortable as possible, but no I do not feel like I am in it for the money. I have always told people Im not trying...
If I were hiring for a marketing or marcomm position, a communications degree would be a plus. If I were hiring for an art director or graphic design position, I would hire the one with the best portfolio...
