My impression is that the variation in overall line vocabulary is unsettling. There's precision in the circles. There's an attempt at precision in the neck (but it's not quite smooth), and there's no precision in the tail. This does, in fact, make the tail look "messy" and not "organic" to me. I think you need to settle on a line style. Everything needs to ...

The issue I have is you mention organic which wont have a perfect shape to it but the body of the bird is deliberate and not in an organic fashion: then look at the wings: In regards to the wings... I would suggest another shape other then what you have chosen because when you told me "medical" and its a symbol of medical I related to something I dont ...

The icon isn't terribly ugly, it's simple. But maybe as an idea it doesn't have that much going for it? If you tell people "it's a c inside of a B on its back and kind of looks like a camera" are they going to be impressed? Or is it better to start from scratch and make a better looking camera which isn't shaped like a B on its back? To compare with here is ...

for the first word, claudio, consider a more bold font for just that word, and "eyeball" it to fit squarely over the last name instead of using guides. the kerning between the B and A, and the A and C in the last name might be tightened a bit. I like the logo itself. the squareness reminds me of books on a bookshelf, though. I would keep working on the ...

You won't win the designer of the year for that. But the less there is, the less there is to dislike I guess. Your yellow version of the icon has ellipses taller than wide: It is weird looking and even weirder as a mustard on gray when it is put in the browser tab icon. If you are going to make a browser tab icon then just make it dark gray or black. It ...

I think the website design works. I like your transitions for the header links. Clear and concise communication. Color palette reminds me of a nutrition company or similar. I think font choice works well for tech-related website. I would probably scrap the serif face for a complimentary sans-serif face, but that's purely personal taste. Also, I noticed ...

I thought instead of getting caught up in the types of snacks to show (because they vary in each location or culture) focus on portraying the "feeling" snacks give people when they desire a snack. Of course You want a camera to be readable in your icon so I kept that and I added a symbol of some smiling woman's red lips with her though licking ready to ...

Rather than trying to explain, I figure I'd post a visual suggestion, if the OP is stuck on using "dishes"/"Plates" as a icon theme. It kind of takes a riff of of what Ryan is promising with a stack of items - in this case "plates". I hope this helps you! Here it is: Peace.

If it's not a standard icon (read: thousands of apps use it) then it will be difficult to figure out no matter how well you design it. Add a label next to it, then the exact icon doesn't matter so much. I'm yet to see a non-standard icon so incredibly clear that I immediately know what it means without labels.

I don't understand the icon presented in the question. Some lines, circle, flying aliens? I suggest not to use "folder"-like icon - no matter what you will do, it probably will be not original and not beautiful as you like. IMHO you should find some "symbol" to your application and create just a beautiful icon even without any suggestion of ...

I would change the icon to include different types of dishes to better represent hierarchy. For example on a traditional dinner setting. So maybe the top one is a dinner plate, then a saucer, then a cup, then a spoon. Right now it just looks like a poorly aligned group of indiscriminate objects (I don't see them as plates).

What happened in the end - and that was a request from the customer, was that we added an overlay on the whole page when the menu is visible. You can see it in action here: http://nabilgholam.com/all-projects (the website is now live, finally) I'm even less sure what to pick as accepted answer, now.

Hearing from others helps, this is my best opinion that others have responded by making remarks of pros and cons. You can set it up in a blog for other designers to check out. Try Behance and other great portfolio sites online. In some situations it is always good to go with your gut instinct if you feel it will stand out... take the risk and see what ...

One thing I noticed is your use of punctuations. You may use them as you like in informal situations, but if we're talking about professional typography, you need to remember these rules: Any punctuation mark only appears one at a time. You have used ??, .. and .... in many places. In your question too, you're missing them in some places. If you want to ...

There is a Playboy bunny rabbit logo on the tail of one of your planes. If you're in Mubai you don't know, but it's a magazine of naked women. You probably do not want that on a professional site! Speaking of that, depending on what you want to show off, it might or might not be an issue that the graphics all on the front page came from somewhere else. ...

Visually, it's cute. Nice work on that. Structurally, it's lacking. When you have to explain what to click on to navigate the site, the navigation is broken. Asking a user to read that they need to click on an image of a balloon to actually get to the content of your site (the portfolio) is not intuitive. I'd also rethink calling yourself 'crazy'. :)

Wow it's awesome! The font is readable so it's appropriate in my opinion. It is user friendly except not everybody knows at e.g. 'connect' that they have to click the satellite to open up the contact form. Also: I saw this when I opened up the site: Greetings

If you criticize logos on here you'll just get a minus vote. Probably no one with good advice would bother because if you tell the truth people don't like it. So you will just get advice of whoever is left over who puts up with that. So it comes down that asking the Internet what they think of your logo is like asking YouTube what they think of your video. ...

The dots are the fattest items in the picture and they don't really mean anything. If you have a budget for ink it's like you spent it all on dots and didn't have anything left over for skull. If the skull is supposed to be scary then having an upside down heart for a nose and toothpicks for teeth is not scary. I guess it's kind of like you need to decide ...

I don't think your font treatment is pulling in the same direction as your graphic skull, for two reasons: "Plaza" is Art Deco era (google, wikipedia) and brings that baggage with it. Both layouts are symmetrical – which contrasts with the connotation of "Psycho". Maybe something more unbalanced would be more striking?

I think you want to re-think a little. As others have said, that wheel is not really a good thing. Too complicated, too detailed, not really descriptive. Since this is a company that makes generators powered by bicycles you want to tone down the pushbike/unicycle association. The lightning bolt and the blue "splashy" background is too cartoon-ish: it ...

"logo for a company building generators powered by bicycles" If the first two images say anything they'll say that you sell tires for bicycles. That makes even less sense because why would a bicycle powering a generator need a rubber tire and spokes? I've seen a generator powered by pedals (it worked a blender) and the chain just went to a gear, like an ...

As @user27606 said, do not use a photograph directly for the logo... There is way too much details (see the thin spokes? That won't come out well when the logo is resized). What you can do is make a simple thin tyre (torus) which represents a cycle tyre, or maybe the Gear, and add the lightning-bolt to that...

I wouldn't recommend using a photograph that has been filtered for a logo. A photo is a great place to start for inspiration, but there is too much detail for a logo and those spokes would get lost at a small size. Logos are often used at small sizes so make sure your design is readable at all sizes. Also, it should read well in both black and white and ...
