I am planning to make a logo for myself please give me some good guidence regards
hi gopakumar? i hope thats you name, i like it, even the paint stain is very used there is something about this one that mas me like it. may be the large dripping to the right. i like the typeface you used much, it is your creation?, what the name of it? maybe you can post a bigger image to see the details. well done CG
Dear cristian gonzalez Thank you very much your appreciation, that paintings are mine if you want to see bigger click the zoom icon then wait you can see the enlarge image. Regards.
Gopakumar, I think cristian gonzalez was refering to the logo posted. See if you can post a larger version of that, if thats what you want to critique, unless your starting from scratch?
I am posting larger version og my logo
Type face is "ft45.ttf" i dont't know the exact name, i got it from www.templatemonster.com
now look at this i did the large dripping to the right.
The paint splatter to me works much better when it is on the left. When it is on the right the web.multimedia.pri.... gets crowded into the descender on the p and dosnt look right. I would also experiment with other typefaces for the name too. To me it has a bit of that futuristic tech feeling to it and it kinda clashes with the nature of fine arts and the paint splatter in the logo. The k also isn't very legible in this font too, loks kind of like an x.
please check this
Dude, Knock the g to white when it is on top of the splattered paint.
do not change G to white. you will loose legibility. also make kerning between e and a (in "fine art" tigther) Other that that advice. I am not sure that there is much to critique as I do not know what you clients are like and/or your skill set. question-are you mostly dealing with small busineses, non-profit org, corporate or? Clients are what age group, conservative/liberal. Location ? Amsterdam, NYC or New Orleans or New Delhi? Aesthetics, design etc.. come after these questions are answered.
It is already loosing legibility by having the black g on a orange background. Try using the white G on the splatter as a logo. That way your name can be read separately and as clear as possible.
Hi, Basically I am a creative painter presently working as a web-multimedia designer. In Middle east (Bahrain). I have an online art gallery (www.gopan.org) , which promotes Indian contemporary artists. I need to create one logo to be used for all my personal as well as commercial activities. I am an Indian artist aged 32 completed five year National Diploma in Fine Arts (Painting). I would be grateful to you if you could provide some good idea to make out the new logo with new identity.
Hi - You could try creating a separate icon with the pain splatter (possibly incorporating a G) with your name below or beside the new icon. After reviewing your online art gallery (impressive achievments in 'about artist' section by the way), I have to say that the paint splatter (and the logo in general) is quite generic and not reflective of your artistic edge. I would explore some options of how to better express your uniqueness or rework the paint splatter to become more of an interesting icon. Hope that helps a bit! Creating your own identity is always the toughest.
hi please check it this
If you like the serif font for the g icon than use it in your name to. The two faces you are using now do not compliment each other.
please check it
hi! i'm agree with David about serif.. not sure it must be Garamond at "gopakumar.r" (i don't like Garamond's "a").. also type at "web.multimedia.print..." breaks balance at whole logo for me.. stretched tahoma? maybe should be extended Helvetica?..
Platino and Helvetica
get rid of .r it's really confusing. No one is going to think that it is the first letter of your name. Most people will try and type it into a web browser. I actally think that helvetica would be nice for everything. Including the g in the logo. However if you try that you might use a Capital G. A capital G will have more presence. Good luck.
thanks Dmitry Taranov, but now logo not feel like a unit
In general serif type is used for text unless is intentionally designed for display.
should be "web.multimedia.print..." a part of the logotype or a part of id - that is the question
Gopakumar -- I think this icon works much better in communicating what you do -- I prefer the lower case g in the icon, perhaps you should experiment a little more with the typeface used for your name . . . to me, nothing seems to quite work yet. In this example below I have used CG Omega, although I am not a font expert, so maybe someone else has some other suggestions for you . . . Here is a possible solution to make the "web.multimedia..." make your logo feel more "like a unit."
R. Since you seem to be welcoming critiques with visuals, here's mine: Lose the centered layout. It doesn't represent the abstractness and looseness of your fine art. Also, a little type overlapping the g-con adds some dimension, which relates to your work. Aloha! Scott
Wow Sally! You and I really think alike. I guess we were posting around the same time. I like what you did with the g-con. In my layout, the original g-con doesn't keep the viewer within the design like yours does. Aloha! Scott
We do think alike, Scott!! I like the idea of having the name overlap the icon, it adds a unique dimension like you suggested.
I like sally barlow logo " g" icon near the name of gopakumar i would like to know which fonts used for that logo i realy feel like a unit also. i think i will remove last name r, but this is not feel like an absolut (100% perfection)logo. i like some of these logos some of theme feel like 100% perfection
R. Nothing in this world is 100% perfection but 99.999% is almost achievable.
R. Nothing in this world is 100% perfect, but 99.999% is a reasonable goal.
I am really sorry... i think much better than existing one ... don't feel bad
CG Omega was the font I used in the sample I showed you above. Try experimenting more with your icon and hopefully you will come up with something you think is closer to perfection. Maybe experiment with new ways to use the "g" in an icon (perhaps something like the inopoly). . .
please check it
These are looking good, but I would not line up the "s" in arts to the stem of the "r". Let the bottom line extend out just a little, so that the right side doesn't look top heavy.
Now a little less.
Your logo has really progressed from the first one you posted . . . I think it would look better if the "web.multimedia, etc" right aligned with the stem of the r instead of the outer curve of it (I hope that makes sense! I am not a pro with the type language!) Do you feel this logo is closer to 100% like you mentioned before? Did you not like the overlapping look of the type bit over the icon? I thought that provided a unique dimension . . . I think it is really coming along . . . maybe just a bit more refinement to get it there.
Hi, I would like to thank you all for your efforts for making my logo in a beautiful manner, really I like it very much. It was a nice experience for me to deal with you all even though I came in this site very accidentally. I also express my thanks to the founders of the site for the opportunity for interaction. Best Regards
