I would suggest use retina images in website.This is best way.Please see this link. http://imulus.github.io/retinajs/ The reason of images see blurry images in mobile. http://www.alaress.com.au/2011/04/developing-for-high-dpi-devices/

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.

To be honest I don't really see the problem. Upping the resolution of that particular image should not mean a very much larger file size. At least not if you compress it right. In any case, your best option is probably to use media queries as listed here: For including high-res graphics, but only for screens that can make use of them. "Retina" being ...

I would suggest you create svg file from original logo creative

I would suggest you export your logo as an .svg file to fit in retina devices if that is your intended target. Since SVG isn't fully supported across all browsers I would suggest implementing PNG fallback: <img src="logo.svg" onerror="this.src=logo.png"> if (!Modernizr.svg) { $("img[src$='.svg']") .attr("src", fallback); } SVG Fallback per ...

1.-You shall use a image type "png" for drop distortions(Use Natural Sizes for mobile devices). 2.-check resolution screen mobiles. now days resolution screen is great 3.- Use tag for mobile browser not change resolution ( Use custom with to mobile devices) <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,user-scalable=no"> 3.-Use custom css image ...

If the image has solid colors, AI's Image Trace function might be able to trace the image. Then you could put the colors to a color swatch, then swap the colors.

Photoshop is the proper tool to use when editing raster graphics - png, jpg, gif, tiff, (some) eps, (some) pdf, bmp, etc. Illustrator is for vector graphics - (some) eps, ai, (some) pdf, svg, etc. You should be using Photoshop for a PNG file.

Your question looks theoretical but when reading more closely it sounds like you are asking how to merge shapes in Illustrator. There are multiple ways to make an hexagon with rounded points. Here is one that gives clean results but depending on the value you pick, might not look perfectly rounded : Draw an hexagon using the polygon tool. You can click on ...

Its' not technically stealing because you did not know that there was another company with a similar logo. However it could easily be perceived as stealing due to the similarity so I would say that to avoid legal troubles, you should tell your client the research error you have made and come up with a new logo :)

This will involve a massive change in the design, because (given the quantity of mountainous terrain) the text and house outline will be overwhelmed. The southern mountains stomp all over the text, and the strong curve formed by the valley conflicts with, well, everything you have there now. In your shoes I would counsel against making that change, both ...

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 ...

I think you're off the mark but not necessarily for design, though not necessarily NOT for design either. You're off the mark because you can't seem to justify the reason behind the shift. If you're changing someones branding you should have very sound reason to do so, it doesn't appear you have that. See this question and the answers as possible help on ...

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. ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 «TRITIUM» 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 ...

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 ...

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.

Alternatively, you could use an SVG at 385x105 in place of a PNG or JPG. SVG's are resolution independent – which means none of this "is my logo going to look good on everybody's screen" stuff to worry about. And often times, an SVG will be more light-weight than a JPG or PNG. AND SVG's play very nicely with media queries.


2

First, as some others have mentioned, the logo image is being displayed at a size different from its actual size. Doing that leaves it to the browser to perform the sub/supersampling needed to resize an image and browsers aren't awesome at that. Along with that, it looks like the logo file you are using is in fact a bit fuzzy. PNG is a good format here, but ...


2

It's a dynamic image set to resize based upon browser window size. Some sizes will look poor. Setting a specific size for the image (then adjusting the site CSS media queries to call other sizes for other screens) would server it better. Most web site logos are not set to scale when the browser window size changes. While that theory works wonderfully for ...


1

It looks pretty crisp to me, but it does indeed look slightly squished. Maybe the dimensions of the original image produced by the designer are not similar (ex: 1000x1000 --> 2000x2000) to how you're displaying it on your site?

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...

As demonstrated by other users, the use of italics represents movement. As implied by Umberto Eco in the SIGN PRODUCTION MODEL (http://www.signosemio.com/eco/modes-of-sign-production.asp) ,vectors demonstrate movement, any lines crossing through or skewing type will help. :)

If you have figured out the "fibre optics" and "connectivity" part then fast should technically be easier with - a speedometer(with light green for fast n dark-green for fastest) - provided you know the units of your services. Rest is, up to your imagination, how you intend to integrate this with your first two components.

A luxury logo is a logo that is attached to a luxury brand. In that sense, there's nothing in particular style-wise that makes a logo luxurious. But lots of things could imply it: simplicity high attention paid to typography classic imagery 'luxurious' stylizing (think expensive implementation such as engraving, etching, gold plating, etc.)
