Aside from the ouch that hurts visual aesthetic everyone else has noted, part of your problem is that the ninja star has a lot of white space around it purely by nature. You've essentially created a big square forcefield around your thin logo. That's what's bothering you. If all that air is what's tripping you up, then you need to change something else. 1) ...

General reaction to things that I can see: The mark is forceful and strong. I also get a very gothic 'death metal' type of vibe from it. Depending on the type of music we're talking about, that might be good, might be bad. The type doesn't seem to fit the mark at all, nor does it seem to contrast enough. In its current state, it feels that it's fighting ...

As much as I understand the confidentiality issue, it will be difficult to critique the positioning and type without seeing the whole thing. The E: With what I see right now, I don't get the e. It seems really top heavy and the curve at the bottom is weird (I'm guessing it's where you might have modified it?) Technically, I would be careful with the tail ...

I very recently made a music logo, but for a different purpose (business, website and app). I think I can add some things I picked up during the whole process. I went through maybe 20 iterations, and the last iteration included rebuilding it and incorporating the Golden Ratio into it as much as I could, it actually pulled off the effect I was imagining much ...

The benefit of having your full name in a logo is that, well, your name is the logo. Nike has the benefit of spending hundreds of millions of dollars to train the public to know that a "swoosh" = Nike, but you don't have that luxury. Not yet, anyways! While using initials or symbols in logos can sometimes lead to more creative solutions or more distinctive ...

this question is like "how should my logo look like?" my advice would be to hire a designer/design studio to do it for you or just start start sketching all of your ideas out. there is little reason to choose a text only logo before sketching out all of the above. Also look at what other bands/music makers have in their style and maybe try to fit in.

I much prefer design 1 It's got great use of white space and gives priority to the information. It also shows the shape of the map in a much more subtle way, 'there but not there'. In the second design the type seems a little squashed into a shape that takes priority, that is by comparison to design 1 which is very fluid (literally) it seems to have a ...

There's a lot going on here but see if I can help you out. First is alignment which has a lot going on. The outer most area is different width on all 4 sides. This should really either be 1 width, or at most 2 widths (sides & top/bottom): Then internally, nothing quite lines up correctly. This makes it difficult for a reader to follow. See in this ...

Not sure that the Hexagon in the BG is of much help and it might be just ruining the effort that u have put in. How about removing the BG Hexagon and just the three circles that can now be increased in size and used in the center of the circle. That would look way better. I am just attaching an image that is more close to what I am saying and that way it ...

Well, I would hate to go against the crowd here, but I totally disagree that you need to rethink your design. In fact, I think the reasoning behind your idea is very solid. The idea of using the fiber optics as a symbol for connectivity is clever without being contrived and most importantly, it gives you a gut feeling of "this is a technology company" while ...

Personally, I think you are way off track. There is nothing that tells me that the blue and yellow thingy is either fiber cable or "N", without your little explanatory rebus at the top. To me it is a company name with some blue thingy floating absentmindedly above. If you need to explain an image to a bunch of designers by making another much more ...


2

I like it. It has a minimalistic, flat feel that is the trend for web design right now. For some reason the yellow opening looks a little misaligned to me, and perhaps you could add another yellow opening to the other line as well. Also, have you thought about beefing up the lines a little bit?

Choice of font for title and slogan - Do you know a font for the cursive part that would look better? Is the size OK? I would consider changing the cursive font - your choice of Mistralis overused. Consider an option like Calligraffitti. You can search Google Fonts for other free cursive fonts that you can use on your desktop and on your website. ...

If you're trying to keep the paper and slides linked (e.g., you'll be handing the paper out as part of the presentation, readers will have to sort through various slide shows to find yours, etc.) you should keep as many of the graphic elements consistent as possible. Examples 1 and 2 both keep most of the graphic elements the same; people expect some change ...

I think it needs alot more work. To me it just looks like two tubes with little to no significance. You may be better off making a logo out of the company name and then adding embellishments. Sometimes simple is better.


5

I have a different take on the subject. The logo should communicate something about the product, not the product's name (I am giggling at the thought of a Microsoft logo of an itty bitty pillow). The product is a speech synthesis program. I get that tritium is a chemistry based word and I like the sound of it, but speech synthesis has nothing to do with ...


2

We aren't usually a brainstorming site, but I'd like to give you a few of the ideas that popped in to my head when thinking about this. I would either be going very literal, or very abstract, but not a mish mash in between the two like you currently have. So two ideas, one literal, one abstract: You could create an image of the wiring itself, with the ...


7

Personally, I'd shy away from the pure yellow, pure(ish) blue colour combination. Nothing screams 'cheap' and 'pedestrian' to me like the use of two or three pure and saturated primary colours. Try and come up with examples of logos that do, and ask yourself whether you want to be in that kind of company.


2

If you're only problem with it is that it's a bit boring, that's not a very important problem. Often boring elements aren't so boring as part of the finished design. I personally can't see anything wrong with it; it's different enough that it stands out from the other elements, and it invites interaction thanks to those arrows. Anyway, if you really want ...


2

Keep it simple, don't try to incorporate all the concepts that come to your mind in one logo. Focus on one idea. The less elements, the better (as a bonus your logo will be more easily recognizable and better reproduced at smaller sizes) . Also I don't think trying to please everyone will work; do what is the best for the logo design, you can't win ...

The word Ā«TRITIUMĀ» is so cool. No need for an aditional Graphicmark. Focus on superprecise typography instead (like in the website mockup).


16

Mi opinion: Use the atom as a secondary asset only. Your last sample, the website with the type alone, is great. The colors are interesting, the word and its shape as well. The straight lines work, especially if you try for example with the atom in the background -see image below-. I see it and sort of get more both the speech ('soft') and engine ...

I'm thinking keep it simple, and concentrate on the typography. Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen with 3 nucleons. So maybe use two of the nucleons for the 'i's' and one 'floater': As Tritium is radioactive it decays, and so does the typography. Loose quick sketch but you get the idea. Logo should work at most sizes, with spacing adjustment ...

Okay others have good points, I would like to add a new one. The logo is size challenged in that the details are a bit too small. This may be a problem if you need to: work in small scales such as 24 x 24 pixel icons (or even smaller) Print a business card sized medium, you would now need the ring to be quite big for the dots to be visible. I think the ...


35

It's interesting, but (I assume) It's really the three dots that is the tie into 'TRItium'. As such, I'd consider dumping both the circle and the hexagon. They seem superfluous to the concept. They are nice, but (and this is just my opinion) in the world of software, those tend to give off a bit of a video game vibe--which may or may not be your objective. ...


1

First: you do not need to force all sorts of concepts into one logo. It is a bad idea. What you want is a shape that is clear, recognisable and works in all sorts of sizes. You must anyway teach your users what you do, so better make it as simple as possible. After people got the general idea, you want the logo to be instantly recognisable. That often means ...


5

I agree with 200_success about ditching the hexagon because it adds no value...and am also unsure how Tritium relates to a speech-synthesis engine as Scott points out. However, I like the atom graphic (which I think is clean & simple but interesting, particularly with the bit of incongruity that the electron adds); and I will assume for the moment that ...

I see it as a cube. I don't have photoshop with me but add a drop shadow then trim to give the effect that it's a black cube with the atom inside. Cube = building block; has to do with your app.


20

I suggest ditching the hexagon, as it adds no value. If anything, it's confusing. In chemistry, the first thought that comes to mind when I see a hexagon is "benzene ring". That's not what you wanted to draw, right? The alternate version of the hexagon, with oddly aligned edges, is completely disconcerting to me.

Yes. In addition to other suggestions already offered, don't forget...this site. To zero in on logo critiques, search specifically for them. Also, be sure to review guidelines for asking a great subjective question before posting a question to invite critiques - if you are not already familiar with them.

i'will Go with #12. Its my Personal openion, You Specified in Question that, website specializes in making custom rap songs to their clients. 1) The pulse graph makes me Feel of customizing the Rap Songs.. 2) The Red Circle makes me Feel of Globe (the Clients through out World)

[posting this as an answer due to insufficient privileges to comment] I'd go with #1 if you could make the acoustic "ripples" more apparent, so it'll resemble a speaker. Don't put a record nor musical notes because they're not rap-like...

Overall, the design looks slick, but it makes your experience look minimal. If you had at least 2 jobs on there, I think it would be fine. There isn't much contrast between your name and subheading. I also don't understand what the subheading is- title? freelance company name? handle? All of these are unnecessary anyway. If you really feel the need to ...

Brands of the World has a critique section that does just this. "Post your logo to receive comments and ratings in 4 different subjects: Idea, Symbol, Typography and Colors.

My opinion... Top Card The wing-like logo is much too large. Cut it by 50% and it'll convey more upper scale design. Large logos SCREAM at the viewer. You probably don't want that. Are they supposed to be back-to-back Ks? If they are, the line weights seem reversed to me - they should be thicker in the middle tapering to the outside. But that's just my ...

This is obviously an opinion-based answer to an opinion-based question so I hope you take it with a grain of salt. First Design: I don't like business cards that don't have an obvious front and back. Your first design feels more like a club flyer than a business card for this reason; it doesn't fit my mental limits of what a business card should be and do. ...

If you're using small caps for your first name, use them as well for your last name. Try playing with, font size of the headers and sub-headers, & Indenting the content to divide the sections a bit more

Here is what I would play with: loose the italic and uppercase on the "education", "skills" etc. One will do nicely. And I would imagine that you can skip the ":", as it is pretty obvious what follows. I would make the line space bigger and also increase the paragraph shifts. I would make the indents a lot bigger on "experience" and down to the actual ...

Nice work! Generally, I agree with @raulaglo on the whitespace. In addition: I would make the timeline-line one stroke: there are gaps there I would move the contact with phone and twitter to align with the left column. Achieve this by making the name smaller (you have to take into account that people might have very long, double names) Pull the text in ...


7

As a general recomendation I would suggest to add a bit more of negative space. You can get this by reducing your font size up to 10 or even 9 pt (don't be scared, it would be readable enough). At the same time I would reuse some of the space we've gained increasing line height; everything will look lighter and cleaner. You can also reduce a bit your name ...

I think it looks fine since it will be printed in color as long as it makes sense in the larger scheme of your document. The only suggestion I have is since you're printing in color, keep the blue for links but get rid of the underline. It will make them easier to read. You might also consider doing the link with at least the source name like: National ...

I don't know if I understand the full context but here's my interpretation. I think there are two things that need to be accomplished. Visually stylize the proof/explanation area differently than the rest of the content. Separate the content from the proof/explanation. I'd suggest judicious use of white space...both vertically (space between ...

Does the logo work from an aesthetic point of view. It's...kinda ugly...which...yea, I suppose it does work. And I don't mean that in an insulting way. If the intent was to make a rather haphazard logo to go off of the 'ugly' aspect, I think it works. If that wasn't the goal, then I'd suggest rethinking the layout a bit. It's hard to read at first ...

I agree with Random O'Reilly. Especially in regards to the justified text. Only alternative I would also consider for the separator is a double line instead of a single. Here I used the same size double lines as in your equal sign:


1

For the logo at least: Some of the logo has gradient effects and some doesn't, eyeballs and teeth do, but the rest doesn't... this doesn't make the logo look cohesive. Next, parts have drop shadows, others don't ('Ugly' does, 'app.com' doesn't), and the drop shadows are different colors... again doesn't look cohesive. I would make the whole thing ...


3

If I were you, I would keep it in essence, but differentiate by either/or: Make the text line italic, bigger font or bold Make the distance from text line to equation bigger I would remove the left justified on the text lines. It looks bad when the variation in spaces between the words gets so pronounced. Edit I: By removing the left justified, I ...
