Great comment. Just wish the reviewers would take the time to add comments like this to their rejected files – Tell us exactly what it is about our files that don’t work!
silenceplease you seem like a true asset to the site.
I would stay on the same track you’re on maybe just play with the text a little bit. Also if you could come up with a different layout for the back of the card it may help. Move some of the text to the back of the card to clear up some of the clutter. Play with your opacity or place a gradient mask over the background.
Just be happy you actually got a reason – I’ve done 3 submissions and only ever received a generic rejection – no real help at all.
Keep trying, you’ll get it right – or maybe just hit the right reviewer.
Once again I have been rejected on the graphicriver site – seriously? I was told in a ‘kind’ email that I am being thanked for my submission but it doesn’t meet the quality standards of the graphicriver – even in the already over saturated logo design section.
Here are the first two logos that I submitted – feedback would be appreciated.
Any feedback is welcomed – good or bad
Great conversation going on here – so I might as well through my two-cents in.
I agree with a few of the posts about the high quality of work on this site – some of the artists are simply amazing with what they can do in Illustrator and Photoshop and I can only hope to meet this level of quality some day with my work.
That being said though – I have to agree with Envato’s move to add logo design to their offerings. With other sites like 99 & the big tournament site pushing out hundreds of logos everyday it was bound to happen – it’s a logical step. I’ve thrown my hat in the ring and will see where it goes from here.
I have to admit that I was discouraged last year after submitting a few business card designs and getting them declined – still haven’t received an answer to the email I sent asking for clear feedback as to why they were declined – but feel that I can offer some great logos for the site.
I have quite a few designs that were declined from clients but are still great concepts and have been looking for a way to sell them.
Although I do understand where most of you are coming from with regards to the logo designs needing to be done in Vector format ( I design all of my client logos in Vector and supply them with full color, grayscale, white on black & black on white versions in .eps, .ai, .jpg, .gif & .png) I have also worked with clients that had their logos created with Photoshop in a large format ( between 1600 and 2000 px ) and didn’t have any issues with printing.
I do think that Envato should be offering a ‘buy out’ option for a few hundred dollars for clients that would like to purchase the logo – but maybe make this an option on logos that have not yet been purchased.
The best thing that I can say is the logo section is live and I can’t see it going anywhere – for those of you that don’t agree with it don’t submit – from a business standpoint thought, as a small business owner, I can’t blame the Envato team for taking this step. I also think that with the high caliber of work on the site they aren’t going allow less than adequate designs in.
