business

Hello all!

After years of lurking, I came across a real-life licensing pothole and figured this was the best crowd to ask.

I am a designer and small-business owner that has 2 LLCs to my name. I have purchased single-machine licenses in the past for type that I would use for my design business - graphics that I would create and sell. Now that the second LLC has opened, I am looking at an interesting dilemma.

Logo

Where do I go to create a logo for my fly fishing business? Thanx for any help.

I've seen this font a lot and it has a distinctive look, but I've been unable to find any information on it. It seems like the kind of font you'd see in a logo for businesses related to construction/hardware/trucking; I've seen it used in such a manner, but I can't recall any specifics. It has a very distinctive A; so distinctive that I'd bet an expert would be able to identify the typeface from the A alone.

I've narrowed my business logo down to 3 favorites. I'd like some critique. Favorite and why; colors complementary, too dark/too light; kerning too tight/loose; design element too much/dark/light; design element size; so, basically anything I need to do that would make it better, etc. Be brutal, but constructive. Thanks so much :)

I am in the process of designing a logo and identity around a photography business. The client wants to look young and modern, while alluding to early 20th century america. She does wedding photography and portraiture as well as boudoir/ pin-up style photography. She wants to appeal to a younger clientele; mid 20's to 30's primarily without excluding a wider range of potential customers. I would appreciate any feedback and/or direction. Thanks for your time.

Hi. My name is Drew and I am doing a branding and development project for a local Mortgage company. The company name is First Home Equity Loans. He asked for a new logo to be "upstanding, professional, and to look bigger than the company really is". He is a former Marine and carries himself and his business in a very upstanding and patriotic demeanor. I developed two different ideas for the logo and he chose from the two. I would like some feedback on both of them as the one he chose will need to be more fully developed and the one he did not choose I would like to possibly use in the future. The customer was happy with the file called "fhe logo approved.pdf" and I would like to finalize that one.

Hi!

I'm trying to gauge the importance of various collaboration scenarios... I hope you can spare a moment to consider the following scenario, and let me know your thoughts :-)

You publish a typeface family, "Alice," with 12 weights of roman and italic, covering full Latin, Cyrillic and Greek, under a 'libre' license. You publish all source files - FontLab VFBs including interpolation master outlines, OpenType feature files, and hinting files.

Hi there my idea generating forum friends,

I have a Physiotherapist who needs a logo for her upcoming website and business cards - starting to get more clients etc etc. After some brief discussion as to what the brand values / message should be, she wants simple, premium, friendly. It is based in a reasonably affluent town so the clientele would most likely be well-off (hence the premium aspect).

My worry is that it doesn't come across immediately as a 'Physiotherapist' but I was finding it hard to do this without resorting to glib, cliched hands, spines and muscle references, none of which really sum up physio. The curve of the 'A' is a subtle allusion to the spine but nothing more.

I'm looking for recommendations on a good book on the business side of Graphic Design. I would like a title that is well-respected within the industry and something I will reference repeatedly. Any suggestions would be great.
