    A logo is the first impression for any brand, as per my view only logo can create your first corporate brand image.

    It's cool you have a wide variety of skills. If you've designed for the web, I'm surprised you don't have a portfolio website of your own that you designed and coded. Do you have experience in coding?...

    Your right and thank you. I'm going to rethink it from a new perspective (the whole idea). I'm not used to dealing with names that don't have an overly obvious icon or look associated with them so I was...

  • Question about a certain text/design

    I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to graphic design, so I'm going to start with things like logos and text designs and such.

    I have a question about a certain design, and I'm not sure where to post it, but I thought this might be the best place:



    Now I'm not looking to copy that design, but I was wondering... Does the style of, um... Swirly lines branching from the text have a technical name of some sort? I've seen it before, but I can't for the life of me remember if it's a specific design type, or if it's just a nameless (albeit nice looking) design.

    Once again, I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask.

    Flourishes?

    Why is it you think that logos and text designs are newb material? Check out Jeff Fisher's writings for the depth involved in logo design. It ain't all just pretty pictures.

      Yup, do a search on flourishes or ornaments.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Well, I didn't exactly mean to say that I think logos and such are newb material, but I think that is where I'd like to start. Also, thank you very much for the quick replies.
