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 ...

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 ...

Ok, there are several possibilities. You can try to identify source of your problem using a list of possible causes or jump directly to different approach I would suggest. List of possible causes What software are you using to create this logo? If you use vector SW like Illustrator I would suggest recreating it in Photoshop since rules that usually mean ...

Your original image ("8SLgo.png", labeled "here is the image" in your question) already has the blurring between squares and blurry text. Here it is, enlarged 5x and composed against a white background: It looks to me as though your friend created the image in a smaller size and then enlarged it to the 110x130 size before sending it to you. If the ...

Is this what you’re looking for? This effect has been produced using Adobe® Illustrator® plugin called Oblique Projection 'opo’. I’ve written this extension to automate the creation process of parallel perspective effect (the inner shadow in your case). You can grab your free evaluation copy at http://ccmutants.com/subc/products/try.html And here is how ...

Maybe try using JUST the iconography as a more emblematic approach for the profile photo? You're not asking a technical question, you're asking a creative one. There's a thousand options here. This is where you, as the designer, have a chance to show what you can make from a less-than-ideal situation. Good way to cut teeth! Open up several .Ai artboards ...

Bottom – it will look better when printed. All gradients won't look good in small sizes or on desktop printers. Also make sure it's in CMYK or will be printed dull and darker.

The problem is not the logo. It's the fact that the site is built using Flash and with a high degree of compression in the output. Flash, much as I've enjoyed using it in the past, is (apart from movie trailer sites) just about obsolete as a technology for building websites. It can be finicky, and image quality has to be kept under control. This site ...

Is it a simple case of making sure you have the Fill area selected and not Stroke when you click on the colour? It the colour panel, the fill area is represented with a full colour box, the strong like a square with no fill but a line colour around it.

Use the Pen Tool (p) on photoshop and draw around the outline of the reference, go to the paths toolbar (next to layers tab), right click the path, and click stroke. This will give you the effect you are looking for. Then it is up to you to make use of it.

First I would not necessarily impose a design to a designer unless you can back it up with sound marketing and communication strategy. The designer may surprise you with a fresh look on your business that you had not imagined. I would also make sure to get a few options to compare what might be a better fit (3 is usually a good number). If you do need to ...

First and foremost: hire a real designer, and don't succumb to the lure of all the design contest spec work sites or competitions. A good, professional designer will guide you in this process, instead of you having to guide them. Yes, be prepared to pay more. You get what you pay for.

You can just save it as JPEG with high quality for Print and medium quality for web. You can save it by going to "File/ Save for the web ", and then you should see the quality options and the dimensions to edit.

To me, if it's about someone's life, people should play a larger role if the icon is to be about photography Mountains and a sun don't convey "life" to me at all. They convey "landscape" photo. Use of a camera or aperture would convey photography - not the person behind the camera. While a camera is certainly in use, and people do take photos of ...

I know it is very important to capture the meaning of the company / website into the logo. This is false. A logo doesn't have to do any of that. In fact, it's usually not fair that it carry that burden. Rather, a logo is simply a way to uniquely identify your company or product. What your company or product does is communicated by a much larger ...

Just going on your comment of "The camera idea has a problem: Instagram. It'd look much like its logo, and could be confusing as they have kinda the same idea" Doing a quick Google search shows you just how easy you can portray the image of a camera in a logo. You need to play about more, try doing some quick sketches of things that represent your ...

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 ...

While I think this is a duplicate in general, I'd like to add some info based on context of the question. This is a logo. When I deliver final logo files, included are fully working vector files. There's no point in maintaing or restricting delivery of native files for logos. The client actually needs native files for their logo. So, to this end, I'd ...

I personally think you shouldn't give her the files, since that's why she hired you. I think it's kind of a slap on my face if it's done to me even though the client will pay me for it. I think you should just tell her that as a designer, it is with regret that you have to keep the designs and she would just have to tell you what she wants within the ...

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 ...

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.
