Did it not have any company name or tagline?

You can’t just upload an icon to the logo category. What’s in the preview could at best be in the abstract vectors category.

Why don’t you read again all the comments I made and try to apply these? All I see is the same icon with slightly darker colours. That still disregards 99% of all the comments I made…

What I see in the preview is not a logo.

Cheers

Chris

It was a fun challenge :)

I don’t think it would be accepted – as you say, too simple.

Mainly it was an exercise of showing others how to get the basis right: positioning, sizes, hierachy, balance, typography.

If you get the basics right you get sth that will look like a logo, no matter how simple. That’s the start. Then from there on start becoming creative and work on the details.

Basicailly walk first, then run :)

Good luck

Chris

Maybe you should try clearing your session and browser cache. Then try again.

If not, there’s always the FTP option. I find that easier in any case.

Have you tried that?

I can’t guarantee you the exact reason for the reductions, but I can give you some pointers as to what I think maybe the issue:

Logo 1: The graphic is too complex. It’s a nice graphic, but it’s not a logo icon, it’s an illustration. Simplify the graphic. I like the font choice, but maybe add a tag line to complete it. Also make sure the main message and tagline balance nicely in terms of size and position with the logo icon

Logo 2: the icon is probably already here in numerous variations. Map pins are not very innovative. The tagline looks a bit wrong in terms of positioning and spacing. Also the pin may be too near the main company name. But I would suggest that the main reason is because it simply a very common icon.

I do like the shape and the colour style. So work with the typography and you may have something there

Logo 3: again, I would suggest typography is the main issue. Tagline is way to space outand it’s also very thin. Remember it has to be visible in very small size. And again positioning of the main company name and tagline in relation to the logo icon is not ideal

Try getting the basics right. Then start working on the detail. I don’t think it’s such bad work, but it does need some improvement.

Cheers

I always thought the button was a bit of a pain because if you uploaded 20 screenshots for one project you needed to add the purchase button for every one of the screenshots. I think it would make much more sense to have a purchase button for the entire project.

So I started basically only putting one button next to the very first screenshot. At the same time I thought this may be misleading.

I think the better solution is if you just have some text with the link at the bottom.

But of course, each to his own … I won’t miss it :=)

Good tips, thanks for that :)

What are usual values for a decent printer to start printing at? This is for my latest stationery item, and I want to make sure that a decent office printer can print it. If my piece of &%!$ can’t, that’s okay, as long as most of my customers can :)

Cheers
