    Question Anyone willing... (56k warning)

    To chat and talk about design every now and then? I've volunteered my help with a start-up production company to make logos and fliers and the like, and I feel that I could improve a lot if I had someone to talk to from around these parts from time to time.

    Here's some things I've done so far for the group:

    Nope.

    Lay off the cheesy fonts and layer styles.

    Serif fonts generally look terrible in all/small caps with some exceptions (experienced designers).
    Your text has no space to breathe, remember that every letter is a work of art and deserves to stand on its own.

    On the first image there should be more spacing between Chronos and -productions-. The capitalized P breaks the flow of the lines, try making it the same size as the rest of the text.

    For the second image, increase the line spacing, lower the text size a bit. It's a strain on the eyes to read and is also clunky.
    A small tip to give it depth, make "Entertainment" smaller and lower the kerning between the letters so that it's the same size as "Productions".

    If you're going to drop shadow, make it subtle and not as if it were a second line of text behind the object.

    Otherwise, not as terrible as everything else you've posted.

    Ooh, from Serix even! Long time no see! I still follow you on deviantart. Mind if we chat sometime on msn or aim / whatehaveyou?

    I think I should have made it a bit clearer, I'm planning on getting more involved with graphics arts. I'd like someone to chat with about it if anyone's willing to.

    I think somethingawful actually have a rule against putting 56k warning in yr thread titles now, because it applies to pretty much no one anymore.

    not that you're breaking any opnrpg rules you know ;], but just saying.

    anyways, long time no see, Jacksterson :]

    Raikun & Hannah were the only ones keeping this section life support.
    People don't really care about it anymore.

    Somethingawful has a rule against doing everything; hardly a good stepping stone :P

    So at present, I'm working on a logo for an event that we're sponsoring. It's going to be an all day for-charity concert in front of City Hall. We've already got the logistics planned and the spot reserved, so really it's up to me now to make the logo for the whole event. I'm just not sure how I should go about doing it. I have a sketch, in which the name of the event will be 3D, kind of 'popping' out at you. It's going to be an all-ages event hosted in June, so I want it to be kind of Spring-y. Have any of you suggestions or tutorials I could check out that might help?
    Nope.
