    I don't do bands. Just lettering. And it can only cover a certain percentage of the windshield. We keep it above the sun visor area.

    I don't think you have much to worry about in the aspect of harsh criticism, I think your portfolio is perfectly fine! You have a good eye, and for the most part, I would consider your designs to be impressive...

    I personally like the top two and the bottom left (with revisions). The top two are both clever, simple, and easily recognizable, but I think the bottom left version has the most promise. I'd pull in...

    Thanks so much, everyone! I assumed I'd have to have them make a template of some sort, but couldn't work it out myself.

  • 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.
