Wow, thanks! Wasn’t expecting so much feedback, and so quickly too; you guys are awesome!
@Motionreactor – I’m going to play around with the type alignment, like you suggested. The fi is there because I have an interest in typography and like the shape of the ligature – and my nickname has been Fi for years (short for Fiona!)
@Raincutter & stefusilviu – you’re right, next step is colour. The way I always work is to make the logo work in 1 colour to get the overall composition right, then add colour.
Thanks again everyone!
I’m having the same problem as a lot of designers – I’m trying to rebrand myself and finding it tough.
I’ve been trying to simplify my branding, and also make it a bit more professional-looking, and I’ve come up with this: http://bit.ly/dUXU6l
I’d really appreciate any opinions you have.
I like the second one, to me it looks a lot neater and is a stronger logo.
Firefox for me too, I got so fed up of IE6 .
I’ve got a couple of illustrations to finish off and a logo design to work on over the weekend.
It’s only 9.20 am here (UK) so I’ve still got a few hours of the day job left before I can get home and have a glass of wine (or maybe two!) and start the weekend.
I work full time as graphic designer for a video & multimedia company. In the evenings I do a bit of freelance and create stuff for GR to be a bit more creative than during the day.
I found GraphicRiver through Freelance Switch, which I found through vector tuts. I loved what I saw and immediately wanted to create graphics to upload.
I’ve only had a few sales so far but with only a few items, I can’t complain; I just need to create more stuff and see how it goes.
