Hey guys,

I have been messing around with a logo for my freelance graphic design services, and think I have finally come up with something I can stick with. Tell me what you think. After I settle on a final design I'll end up redoing my portfolio to match it colour wise.

Be harsh, but be constructive.

Thanks,

Carson

The design is clever. Have you tried it with more color like oranges and/or greens?

I agree that the font colors need to be brighter, but orange and green might not go with you theme. try lighter blues for the text.

I like it and also agree you need to make the text stand out more. Also "Design" doesn't seam to fit. I would play with the spacing to get the D moved over the the right a few pixels.

Colors like that blue and grey make it seem like you are Corp. I do agree with above posters about using a different color palette. Someone suggested green and orange because they seem to have more energy and go with a more youthful appeal. Play around with color, I usually have 100 color variations for one logo. Keep in mind that color sells and it also says a lot.

I haven't changed the colours as of yet, but I did mess with the 'design' a little. I made it smaller and flushed it to the right, but I think lower case would work even better.

Umm is there a particular reason why your logo is so large? I think if you play around with the size you can get the word design to fit better. The word design under your name is tracked way out too much and it's beginning to get hard to read.

The 2nd one seems a little odd because of the empty space on the bottom left.

I think I'd make the logo the same height as the combined heights of the text, instead of that little bit bigger. It currently aligns with the bottom, but it'd be nice if it fit between the top and the bottom... I really like the darker colour, but I think the light blue could be a little more grey so it tones in.
