>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

First time posting to /gd/

Guys I'm making a infographic for a web site that is like a craigslist for workers basically. You post a thread with your request and some plumber/architect/etc post their price and you pick wich one you of them you want to work for you.

Any ways here is the infographic almost done, the dude that ordered it says he's liking it very much and is going with it. But i kinda feel it need something more.

Any ideas?
>>
>>274655
I think you feel it's lacking because the design is all over the place.
It's either bubbles or a list, it can't be both, also there is too much blue, you could try adding shades of that color in order to create contrast and go away with the plainness

unless I have to design an illustrative logo, this is usually how I design logos. however, I've been told by professors and other students and designers online that I should be unifying my text with the icon. would changing the text color to a color scheme that matches the icon fall under unity or do I have to include another additional element to tie an icon to its text?

pic related but it isn't my logo, its just how I prefer to design iconic logos.

>I've been told by professors and other students and designers online that I should be unifying my text with the icon.

What they mean is that the type should reflect the style/feel of the logo.

Think about the Nike swoosh and its logotype. They're recognizable separately, they work together, and you don't need color to identify them.
>>
>>274414
Previous poster is right. Look at your example, Antarctica. The shape of the penguin mimics the shape of the lowercase 'a'. So even though the icon and type are physically separate, they're still unified
>>
>>274415
>>274420

alright, thats what I was hoping.

I appreciate the insight, I feel like now I can stop trying to force elements. people kept suggesting to try adding a background to every logo I did and it was driving me crazy. Or they would suggest connecting the icon to the text which I think does work in some situations nicely but It doesn't mean I want every logo I make to be designed that way.
>>
>>274414
Maybe try to find a typeface that resembles the A on the penguin a bit more, that could help unify the pictogram and wordmark

I don't really like the choice of Capcom. Also, this looks like a western-developed Sci fi game, not something they would make. Change the company to something with a more cool/bland color so it fits in with the art. That bright yellow is jarring as fuck

You posted this shit in a new thread because you didn't get the attention you feel "you deserved" in a dedicated thread for this type of shit.

The reason you didn't get any attention is because it's shit.

Recolor "World Trade Center" to the dark green on the trees. Also make those white horizontal lines the same length, it looks really weird that they are different lengths. "World trade center" isn't perfectly aligned under "One", and small kerning issues. Though I like the design overall, nice work.
