Hello, I’m new here but have already learned a ton from reading the crit pit and I’m hoping I can get some critique of my own. I’m not a true graphic designer, but as a 3D artist working in archviz my duties ranges from adjacent to slightly overlapping with said discipline. I frequently create what would amount to graphic design sketches i.e. quick and rough graphic designs that look fine when adorning a magazine cover or sign in the background of my renders but have issues when viewed up close. This has gotten me into trouble this week as my client really likes one of these designs and wants to use it as the logo for the winery i am visualizing for her. I’ve done my best to clean it up, Kern the type etc. but I wont feel right letting her print this on wine labels and marketing materials until I get some feedback on it from career graphic designers.
Its a simple monogram logo inspired by the wrought iron fixtures throughout the site and vintage cattle brands to a certain extent. Since shes very sold on it, I’m hoping to avoid any major changes that I’d have to pitch but input about kerning, sizing of the subtext, etc. would be highly appreciated.
