>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.

How can I make a passable logo when I have very little to no graphic design skill? How do the professionals do it? Is there a font + emblem (like something that can be done as a Photoshop Shape) that will express "modern and cool"? And what font do I need to download to do this

after much research and a huge number of other products, i've narrowed it down to just these two.

As far as I know you'd have to go in and do that manually. It only takes like 20 seconds per page, but you could speed it up a bit by selecting all the pages with images that are the same size (like the ones in your pic) and doing it that way. Ctrl+click them in the Pages panel and edit page size.

While PS put the files in a PDF, it didn't keep the 2 page spreads.
That's my whole problem.
I'm able to convert the images into a pdf well enough, but the artbook heavily relies on images that span 2 pages (pic related). The photoshop automation doesn't do spreads as far as I'm aware.

Though I might be able to make the spreads myself with a script and just compile all the finished spreads.
I'll report back with results hopefully.

That's if anyone is interested in it.

Tried that.
It fucks up the formatting and placement (as I said in my original post).

I managed to do it, through semi automation in photoshop. It was a bit more work than I had liked to do, but I think it was worth it.

The pdf is fuckhuge though (300mb). I'll go back later and try to reduce the file size if anyone wants an upload of it.

Programmer here, mostly clueless about design.

The program is a tetris wallpaper (it plays in the background) which needs an icon and so far I have this.

I like the setup but overall it seems to be lacking something, any suggestions for improvement?
>>
Just a thought, Maybe you could try to turn the shapes into a pair of letters or something? Right now it doesn't really show that it's a wallpaper. Other than that it looks nice. I'm liking the white stroke to it.
>>
>>284846
Thanks, conveying that it's a wallpaper is quite tricky. So I chose to convey tetris first and hope this creates interest.

I'm hesitant to add letters because the icon is mostly displayed in a sized down version so text doesn't work that well.
>>
You could try something like this.

Maybe have the tetris blocks spell out the first letter of your programs name.

Try not to make it look like a music visualiser like I have

New general logo critique thread
What are you working on? Give and receive critique.

I'm not sure about what kind of font I should use here. Previously used Modak, this is Grand Hotel but it still doesn't feel right. The logo itself seems off weightwise too.

Here are my tips:
-make your raindrops look more like raindrops, and not circles/ellipses
-get rid of the "drips" that are connected to the circle, it looks like it's melting or oozing
-go with a ring shape and try slanting the halo at about 45° instead of using a straight-up circle (pic related)

>>
>>283313
Is the client persistent about the lines pointing directly down? If I were you, I'd make the lines a little less thick (and possibly varied in size), and moving diagonally within the halo.

Rain is movement, Your lines and dots are... jewelry.
