>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
>>>/r/ is a better idea. /gd/ doesn't take requests or does 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.

I didn't want to start a new thread for this, but I don't see a critique general or anything like that.

I am not a designer, I'm coming looking for advice. I don't expect anyone here to 'do' anything, which I hear gets you guys mad, but thoughts on how to improve it based on whatever criteria you guys use.

It's for a magazine and the only tool I have is adobe illustrator, if that matters. Suggestions on how to make it better?

Choose one.
If you need font-based 'logo' for this kind of music-related thing you should stick with one of your choices. Abstract shape will pretty much add unnecessary weight.

But that's my opinion.

Can I ask what you guys think about the Square one (#2) The vertical space inbetween NIM and BUS seems so huge, but I wanted to make it a perfect square. Any suggestions?

thanks btw

You know what, /gd/?

Fuck your 'simple questions that are easily googleable' threads, fuck your 'shit on this designer' thread. We're having a good old fashioned INSPIRATION THREAD.

Post stuff that inspires you. Logos, websites, branding, etc.

if not please help and suggest.

It is not.

>Terrible typeface
>blurry edges on the blue hexagon
>artifacting - most likely done in PS
>Thin typeface will scale horribly

OP when asking for critique and suggestions. You need to give us information. Graphic design isn't just about making something that looks 'good', anyone can do that. It's about communication.

In order to critique your logo properly we need context. Which if you had lurked ANY critique thread you would know that context is always asked for. So...

Hey /gd/ I have started making E-Liquid for vaping, and I might have a few potential buyers, but I need a brand, can I get some ideas for a logo? I will lurk this thread until it 404s so I am gonna be here, if I like any ideas you give me or any designs you send I will love to work something out, you will get credit and if I take off you might be able to get a cut.

Line seems really jagged.

Drop shadows aren't working, either change them or remove them and add something else.
