The quality is not the issue here. As the reviewer says they do not have a problem with that. The problem is simply that there are many similar files already. So even if this was a perfect file it would not get accepted.
I can understand that’s disappointing, a lot of work must’ve gone into this. If you look at the needed/unneeded files you will see that Graphic River is not interested in UI systems at the moment. That is the basic flaw of this file.
So you really have to make something different, or something new with this.
Since the quality is great you can always use it to complement and other file either as a bonus or as an extension. For example create a bundle: banners, web Boxes and UI. he would then have the quality file and it will Sell at a higher price then just banners or web boxes. This way you can still get some profit out of all the work you did.
Well, that’s good and detailed feedback! You can also use that to improve your file.
He’s definitely right in that you logo is pretty narrow in what it can be used for and they probably look for more open templates with a wider applicable use.
Definitely do not give up, we all get our share of rejections, and afterwards usually our files are much better
It’s all part of the journey…
I like it, it’s cool
Alter you seem to be doing the fashionable thing … Everybody seems to be called “pixel something” these days. But then were my to talk, how many lemons are there doing design stuff, must be the most creative fruit on the planet – lol
Honestly, I think it’s quite nice!
It was probably deemed a bit too simple, not special enough, not unique enough. Often Logo reviews also very subjective…
You can always play around with the font. I don’t see anything wrong with it, but it’s not particularly innovative either.
Maybe some of the more experienced logo designers around here can give you more feedback but I definitely think this is one of the better files with seemed rejected recently.
I think the third and fourth ones are the best. They could still do with some work on the details but they stand out from the others because they seem to have more depth. The feeling of depth this definitely missing from some of these items.
It also looks a bit like they were cut out. They don’t sit seamlessly under background. That’s also part of the details work.
Then you can work a bit on the text and how it sits on the stone. It looks a bit as if it was just written on top of it and doesn’t fully integrate with the background.
Basically like the reviewer said, there’s a lot of detail work can be done.
But stick with it you can definitely get a quality file art of this.
Hmmm, I think I must have spent just as much time on the presentation of my new brochure item is on the creation of the actual item itself So I decided to ask my fellow authors: which type of presentation do you prefer?
These will have different layout options, so will probably have to add more elements than just the main view. Here’s another option just for reference:http://www.lemon-digital.com/temp/preview-red-alt1.jpg
Thanks three input
PS: should this be an item discussions? I was unsure!
I’d just call it a “bus stop ad”.
Surely there is an “official” definition…
These people seem to agree:http://www.toxel.com/inspiration/2008/10/03/creative-bus-stop-advertisements/
Apart from the padding towards the outside I also think that things are to bunched together. Give them more room to breathe, create some space between them.
Then, also, take care aligning the different elements. For example the “Movember Discount” on the medium-sized banner seems a little off, maybe try placing it In the vertical Middle between the header and the server rack.
Additionally your banners are very simple. Simple items really need perfection in every aspect. Positioning, detail, lines, choice of font, light etc. I don’t think it’s quite there in these respects.
Hope this helps
There are a few things money can’t buy. Health is one of them, the other is having a fulfilling job/life doing the things you love to do. I was at a crossroads 10 years ago where I had a cushy job with a good salary and I could have gone on for the next 40 years … But I really hated What I was doing, it just wasn’t me.
I took the risk, left it behind, and simply started doing what I loved. I now make twice as much money as a did then, I live in a fantastic place with great quality-of-life and I met my wife and started a family.
Best decision ever even though it seemed completely crazy at the time. Even thinking back now the decision seems crazy, but at the time for some reason I just got so boneheaded, I just had to follow it through.
Now whenever I get pessimistic, fed up, stressed out, I just sit back for a few minutes look around myself, where I am, what I do, what I’ve achieved and where I could be if I hadn’t. That makes the optimism return very quickly.
There’s nothing like doing what you love all day long
