this is essentially a long comment. Please remember that someone using CAD/CAM/CAE systems most likely needs to be able to print the logo as apart of a manufacturing drawing. These frequently do not have the ability to print gradients and even color may be out of the question. So most likely your logo needs to be able to fit in the title area of such a ...

CAD stands for Computer Aided Design. As such, the company is essentially 'CompuComputer...' Which is a little weird. But the name is what it is, so I think your logo in an improvement. The main concern with the old logo is that it's just very dated--namely the CAD typeface. It wouldn't resonate with any student today. Things to think about with your ...

I like the logo. A couple of comments though: I don't mind the type, the first half seems a little too round, but the CAD reminds me of the annotations on blueprints, which is (I think) a nice association. Perhaps you could investigate what other blueprint fonts there are out there that give the same feeling for the lowercase part as well. What I would ...

I dont think the grid makes sense nor would fit the realm of print or embroidery.. When designing a logo you should think of every way possible that a logo can be viewed and you should consult the client what their intentions are in using their logo. If the logo is just for a website it might do but ask yourself if that logo were to be used in the header ...

I would move on and come up with other concepts. The circle and water droplets are very similar in nature.

Very subjective, but if it was me, I would stay clear and find some other idea to follow. I would not take the chance, simply.

For my money.. it's too close. While it may not have been a direct copy or even on your mind when creating the Velo logo, what you've come up with is very similar to the GE circle. If I were GE, I would be asking the legal department if we should do anything.

Not exactly a design issue, but on usability - The site says it is FREE, but when you click 'VISIT DOWNLOAD PAGE' the pop-up asks for a donation. What if I don't want to donate before trying the software? There should be another option like 'CONTINUE' or 'CANCEL' so that the user can actually visit the download page and download the software, if is he / she ...

Great design! I especially like the atom animation at the right. I like your colors. As an alternative you could use a dark blue for the background. This gives the page a deepness like the night blue sky: I used Colorizr.js to play with your color palette. If you would like to fine-tune your colors use the following settings that fit your page: The ...

There seems to be problems with the thicks and thins of your letters; did you draw the lettering yourself or possibly used a free font? If this is your first logo it's likely that you might not be perceiving these problems so I will pinpoint a few places where it seems more obvious: The vertical of the "h" in the seems too thick The right part of the b ...

Simple answer...no. While they share similar overall form, they are clearly different both in concept and execution. Unfortunately, neither Matt nor myself are correct. It's really an opinion based question. Will the airforce sue you over your logo? Highly unlikely. For starters, I doubt the two companies are competing. I don't see any intentional attempt ...

For me when I look at your logo at a glance and from a distance I would say yes. If I look at your logo while driving down a road when its on a sign and not reading what it says it would remind of the air force. Look at them from a distance: Some ideas to improve it: Change the direction Fill instead of outline some areas change from a bird like ...

I really appreciate your help, guys. After reading your answers and comments I came up with 2 sets of icons. I'd really like to know what you think about this. Thanks.

How about getting rid of the arrows on the cloud icons, they don't add much to the metaphor anyway because the cloud is becoming ever more synonymous with file management and that's obviously why you've used it - so the arrows are unnecessary. Instead, to differentiate them, use an obvious opposite... turn the cloud upside down for load. :) Forgive my 2 ...

You definitely need to add the inner-ear detail. You've provided the illusion of depth within the snout, this depth can be replicated within the ear whilst still maintaining symmetry.

Here are some suggestions - I hope you find 'em useful. Test: I don't think the up arrow make sense tbh. I can see why you would use a mail icon, but again the user already knows that he/she is creating a mail template. Suggestions: As mentioned earlier I agree with the test tube/lab icon. Without knowing the exact function you could maybe call it ...

Just my take.... Test = Checkmark Save = What you have already Load = A single circular arrow (yes it may seem like a refresh icon, but it's also often used as a load or reload icon. Given the context of the other 3 icons, this would work well.) Another option may be the "loading" star so often seen. Download = What you are currently using as the load ...

Could you use a floppy disc icon (http://www.endlessicons.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/save-icon-614x460.png) for save? As Mads Egmose pointed out, isn't it possible to use an open folder type of icon for the open/load function. More or less like this: .


1

Giving them a tad more detail would help. That way the viewers eye has more reference points.

You could use a lab icon for testing, keep the Save icon as it is For the download icon use the Load one and for load I would use this one

Over all I like it. I think the beak is perhaps a bit sharp. Rounding it would soften the image. In fact, the head seems slightly too large. However, if you were following the sides of the tail up to define the head shape, I can see that. Concerning the type.... There's such a beautiful opportunity being missed to design the A - double H - A combination, ...

Shape I like yours a lot. The only thing I'd say is regarding shape. You mention the beak is pointy, and it is. I like it like that. What I don't like is that the sound waves don't terminate at an angle. The beak and the wings are much sharper. I like the sharper look and think the sound waves should match. Gradient Gradient is fine, especially since the ...

Conceptually nice simple idea - humming/sound device + medical treatment Although the hummingbird looks a bit like a more robust species, like a Kingfisher or a Kookaburra. A medical treatment/instrument of this type might like to evoke "accuracy" and "delicate" maybe with a more feminine appeal (female client base?) - Hummingbirds are the butterfly's of ...

Your logo looks really good; I think the hummingbird as a sound icon is very clever. Here's a few ideas to strengthen the design a bit. Color: I really like the gradient and the color scheme. You can play around with flat colors (as I have in my example) to see if you like it better, but either way is fine. Shape: The beak is sharp, but it does get your ...
