  • 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.

    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.

            I might not even be all that concerned with those particular technical issues.The OP is starting up what seems to be a small home business, so I suspect this card will be digitally printed at a local...

            For this type of business, I'm not bothered by an amateurish card, but the technical issues PD described need to be addressed

            Are they text hyperlinks or "button" hyperlinks. Button hyperlinks tend to break on several readers. Including when opening a PDF in a web browser. Which is probably happening with the PC and...

            Pan I probably did misspeak. I do see that there will probably always be a place for printing. I was speaking from my personal experience over the last 10 years of seeing business drop. I have always...
