I am also not a trademark attorney, however I think you can style the TM how you please. I wanted to share this relevant video about Levi's and their approach to handling the trademark: http://www.fastcodesign.com/3036283/how-levis-turned-a-design-evil-into-a-design-signature

I think C is your strongest logo. I think I get the most lost with E. I just don't think it is as clear and clean as the rest. I don't love A only because I like the gold that you've incorporated in the rest. Everyone else gave you really good feedback as well.

Earlier comment: The barley element is interesting; very subtle but nice. I think you should try to develop a version using only type, and the barley graphic more prominently. In essence I'd say there's too much going on in each logo - but I am viewing 6 at the same time which could affect my judgement. As I commented about the barley element, I have ...

I am not a trademark attorney which is really who you should ask. My understanding is the ™ is merely an indicator that the mark is being used in an effort to register it. ™ means "We intend to make this an ® when unique usage has been established." ™ does not provide any legal protection, it merely is a notice to infringers that the user may intend to file ...

Before Edit: All five logos face one issue and that is they cannot be used for what I would classify as your target audience. Per your information Rooftop patio with yard games such as corn hole, washers, basketball hoop, darts 1st Logo Outside on a rooftop this logo would be ideal for big large print. It could be displayed as a one color with ...

I'll give one piece of fairly specific advice on the logo which I liked best (The horizontal jug of 'hooch'). Choose between the ampersand and the 'nested' Co because it takes too long for the eye to make sense of this lower half. I personally would go with a small but full spelling of company ascending at a parallel angle as Hooch (moving the ampersand a ...

In this video have described exactly the way you want.

As Paolo mentioned befor, draw your logo (three stripes of orange boxes in this case), then distort the envelope, copy, paste, rotate and you're done.

Some tips I would use: rotate certain letters (see Heineken) mirror a letter (see Abba) skew a letter (for example capital A with vertical right side) change color or pattern of a letter (Google, IBM) browse "brand logo" for examples For backgrounds usually 2 colors are sufficient. Also remember that when it needs to be used for preprinted paper. A logo ...

You should first convert your font to an editable vector shape (you can do this easily in illustrator) then you just need some small changes in that to make it a great logo. For example just look at the Amazon logo: a small curved line under the word and a tiny change in "z" letter, created a great logo!

I think section 2 sums it up fairly clearly (well, as clearly as licenses can be): Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, each Contributor hereby grants to You a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare Derivative Works of, publicly ...

Let's ignore the legal issue as, after all, we're not lawyers in here. But let me bring up what I think is a much more pressing issue for your client: why attempt to use stock art--something that anyone else can use--to identify your product or service? Though you may be able to copyright the derivative work, the original work is still free to use by ...

Do not trust the on-screen display of a print-ready .pdf. Ever. Seriously, any and all .pdf viewers have huge problems rendering print-ready .pdfs on-screen. One of the common rendering errors is indeed with hairlines between areas of different opacity, or intersected by areas of different opacity or blending. Mostly, these hairlines are artefacts of the ...

Easy solution, export artwork as a JPEG with maximum quality.

Pass #1 "Get it approximately right" -- Align as many edges of each character as you can to a 4-pixel grid before you resize. If you're pressed for time, the most important edges are the outermost edges of each character, and the horizontal internal edges. Shrink, (I used bilinear interpolation), down to 98x98px to check which edges are still ...

I'm not certain this is correct but would not use of the path from text command resolve the issue? I know in some versions of GIMP this was called create path from text.

It depends a lot on how much you modify the original and how good your lawyers are. Those images look rather generic so a bit of adjustment to the scale, rotation, colour blend etc. and it becomes a derivative work. If you are going to print it, you're good at this point. If it goes online you also need to check the vector code (usually SVG) for metadata. ...

Perhaps you failed to notice "Copyright: PureSolution" on the Shutterstock page. In 99% of all cases you can not trademark or copyright royalty free artwork. What you "purchased" was the right to use the artwork in a limited fashion not ownership of the image. You should read the agreement for any stock image service you are using. Reading the Shutterstock ...

I think your on the right track. It is an interesting font and agree with the person above about the thicks and thins needing some work. The problem with the layout is that it reads as one big box of type. So I don't really read it I am more focused on the shapes it's making. The shape of the bowl of the letter b is awkward sitting above the t. The words ...

It's drawn with the pen tool and filled with a gradient.

It is merely drawn paths with gradient fills. There's honestly nothing complex in that image whatsoever.

I understand your question to be, how do you create a logo with the golden ratio? I feel as if your question is more theoretical than program based? Here is my theoretical answer and I will be the Devil's Advocate for the golden ratio here (as I believe many of the comments above don't completely understand the significance). Sketch on paper. That's how the ...

What your client means is that the logo you create has to be scalable. So you are not supposed to use raster graphics, as they would lose quality when you resize them. Because you are using Illustrator, if you created your logo with vectorial tools (drawing your shapes, for example), that should be enough. As long as your client has access to the original ...

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 ...
