    So, I've been working on my logo for a while, and I'm having trouble incorporating the text in the logo....

    I have one for a full width watermark for proofing, This one will be used to place in the corner of an image for my clients to post on their facebooks, emails, etc.... so I'd like it to be compact.


    Here's the design, could someone help me with the text?

    :rofl: nice.. I'll mess around with some stuff later on tonight.. just a couple of questions:

    Any idea of any color for the font? do you want it to stay green like the tree? white? black? Any outline?

    Also, do you want the tree to have the text on top of it, to the right of it, below it...

    how do you see the layout?

    Are these the main things you see difficult in incorporating lol?

    Am I the only one that thinks that tree looks like absolute shit?

    No offense, but it looks like you took a 16X16 and blew it up in MSPaint..

    yeah I agree :o

    I dunno what it is, just looks like a thumbnail blown up with texture filtering to make it look somewhat smooth.. only it doesn't look smooth...

    I would make the top more of a solid tree shape than the complex edges of branches.. logos should be bold and simplified..

    But if it's something you designed and like, don't let me change your opinion.. art is subjective :)

    it's supposed to have a vector art look... I'm not solid on it, so if you want to make any changes, go right ahead.

    okay that's what I figured.. I might make it a little less busy on the edges, the little barely visible branches and spots just make it look messy..

    yea, not a fan of the tree, really busy looking, and too many different greens to give it a solid vector look. just isnt very memorable or unique for that matter. if you simply just ad text to it im sure well see you on http://www.yourlogomakesmebarf.com/ in no time... j/k :mamoru:

    OK... so I did some revamping... much cleaner simpler design, and I like it quite a bit more.

    when I can afford to pay someone with graphic design skills to make me one I will, but this is just a watermark to put on my web images.
