+1 for the capital C.

I quite like the idea of having those multiple drops though… Maybe reduce their number to 3 and/or vary their size. This would add more variety and depth to the logo IMO .

Anyways, I think it is a awesome logo. I’m sure it’ll pass ;)

Good luck with sales! :)

Hey man!

Firstly, there is a lot of visual clutter on the sails which, to me, does not contribute to the aesthetic quality of your design. Reduce the number of ‘ropes’, unify their direction, and make them work.

Introduce some shadowing to your scene.

Give the boat some texture.

It seems as though the sun generates some weird pinkish highlights on the bottom of the boat’s deck, fix the tint on that. Given the current angle of the boat against it’s light source, the highlights should be redone IMO . Be more subtle and think in terms of detail.

Also I am not a fan of the water ‘swirl’.

Here’s my 5 cent.

Wish u luck! It should pass after some improvement, don’t worry.

Sorry for bumping an old thread but I didn’t want to create a new one. Just wanted to know how does one cancel a pending withdrawal request? I mailed support, but there’s no reply yet.

Thanks in advance!

Hey there man!

As you know design is subjective, so what you might feel is cool and useful, others might find “dirty, dull and flat”.

I am not an illustrator but I would have given you the same correction guidelines as the reviewer. I wouldn’t however have expressed it that way, that’s for sure. They get quite inappropriate sometimes :/

Give it another hour or two of work and polishing and resubmit :) Address the issues the reviewer mentioned and I am sure it’ll pass! :)

Good luck.

I quite like this design too! You can increase the line height of the address just a bit. It will make for a more consistent visual rhythm. Good luck!

Greetings kind people!

As it became my regular practice, I will once again seek your opinions, critique and feedback while working on my next submission. I really feel like this is a good way to approach designing for GR.

My new project is quite extensive. I plan on creating a set of infographic elements for the web, characterized by bold and vivid looks.

The set would include actions and styles for speedy and seamless infographic creations.

Please take a few seconds to check out the first element (a Pie Chart) and critique away.

Also if you have any suggestions on what I should include, please let me know!

Cheers and huge thanks for anyone who chooses to drop a line or two :)

Thank you for your kind reply xstortionist! Appreciate it! I know that ‘quality’ is in the eye of the beholder and so I’ll only say that there are quite a few techniques inside the PSD that UI designers would find useful and inspiring :) I personally have not seen someone implement and execute them in quite the same way so in that sense… there are lots of new things here in actuality.

Cheers!

Greetings kind people!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday streak!

I would like to start my year off with a 326ppi Audio Interface.

Please share your critique, thoughts and opinions before I finish work and submit. I would love to hear your feedback on what should I include / rework / drop?

Thank you in advance!

Cheers!

Below is a full-res preview what I have so far. FX section, beat display, curve adjustment knobs, filters and gains are what I intend to design next and finish the project.

Thank you guys for your input on the subject!

I find cspcreative’s solution to be the most efficient one… Still I don’t understand how Adobe managed to make vector layer management so grim and inefficient. Illustrator—> Photoshop should be a SEAMLESS workflow…

And as far as Doru’s thread is concerned… He actually did find a solution which indeed is somewhat a hack according to me. The proper way to handle this problem is that you do your vector work in illustrator, export the AI, which you then import into Fireworks from where you export it as a PSD … quite an expensive solution to a problem that should not exist anyway… :/ I don’t own Fireworks so… operation is a no-go for me.

Let’s hope that CS6 will breath some new life into Photoshop.

Once again thank you guys for your help!!!

I have done my drawing in Illustrator and now I have 500+ layers that I would like to export to Photoshop while preserving their vector paths.

What Illustrator allows me to do is to select a layer then drag it into photoshop as a smart object (or a path). This however does not preserve scale and position which makes the whole process of migrating hundreds of layers a herculean task.

I have tried exporting as a psd and while it all sounds great, when you actually open the PSD all the layers are rasterized…

I am sure that someone might have been in similar situation so please go ahead and share your experience. Beers on me!
