>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.

Maybe he is creating a firm and is learning about branding. He want's a modern brand, simple to reproduce and memorable, but at the end he will go for scales with the name of the business in Trajan and the slogan in a sans serif with a lot of tracking. He'll want to see a version on green, but then will settle for black and blue cause he doesn't specialize in finances, in fact he can't understand a balance sheet. And don't even ask about the business card with a qr code.

I don't normally come to /gd/ but I have a quick question.
I have some sketches of a band logo I'm working on. I'm kinda familiar with photoshop but it seems a hassle to do what I want in PS.

Is there some sort of simple program that would let me manipulate the size, shape, and visual aspects of the text I use as a logo?

Thanks for the feedback. I also appreciate the time you took to make a mock-up, which I like, but probably won't go in quite that direction. The colors are all key colors of the game. Blue and orange are the team colors, and black and white are colors of the current player weapon. You aren't the first person to critique the font, so maybe I'll do something about that... it's kind of ingrained into the game at this point, but I'll make it a point to "survey" additional opinions of it during my next test release.

I actually have never played Rocket League, and I certainly am not going to compete with something that big. From what I know about it, my game isn't anything like it, other than the fact there's a ball and blue/orange teams (which I admittedly didn't know about). Honestly the team colors don't even matter because you're always on opposite sides of a net and half of the courts don't even have have team colors in their visual design. I went with that shade of blue and orange specifically because didn't want to do the traditional red vs. blue.

If anything, a few months into development I thought "oh shit, this is starting to looks like Portal," so I've been keeping aware of that. Thanks again for the feedback. Most of my graphic design abilities are more focused on the game dev side of things, so it's nice to get feedback on the logo itself. I'll re-evaluate the font and do some other clean-up work on it.

I would suggest that you do pick it up. I think it could give you a lot of insight into making this kind of game. In terms of UI/UX, how players will react to things, and how to make/not make maps and modes. Also in having a unified graphical style.

>I went with that shade of blue and orange specifically because didn't want to do the traditional red vs. blue.
Yes, well.. Orange VS blue is pretty much the modern equivalent, so you would actually have been more unique these days by going with red instead. Though it doesn't much matter, I'm just saying.

>If anything, a few months into development I thought "oh shit, this is starting to looks like Portal,"
I looked up your trailer on youtube, and yes, it does kind of have that aestetic in a far removed sense.

>Thanks again for the feedback. Most of my graphic design abilities are more focused on the game dev side of things
No problem, and if you are in need of a graphical designer to work on your game for GUI/UX, etc. I don't currently have a project I'm working on in my spare time. I also do webdesign.
Hit me up if you are interested, otherwise I wish you luck, it does look like it could be a decent game if done right.

This would be good if you just had it as plane white for a still image logo and an animated logo for the glitch version. Also might look better if the glitch effect was horrizontal
