In the 5x5, the dots visually blend together and I see it as a 'patterned square,' not connected dots. The lines further blend the dots together. I much prefer the 3x3. You may also want to try removing some of the dots within the grid. The contrast on the connecting lines is very low. Try spacing the dots out a bit and making the connections the same ...

The essence of good kerning is to achieve an even appearance to the letterspacing in a word. It's a visual, not a mathematical operation. There some really hifalutin' rules to this, but they tend to be more academic than practical unless you're experienced with typography and/or a type designer. Here's a basic rule-of-thumb kerning exercise that will get ...

Actually it's not bad. There are some things to fix in my opinion. The dots + lines logo it's a bit confusing, especially if you try to use it in a real small version. Keep in mind that thin lines in a big logo will reflect in a "really hard to see lines" in a small one (favicon). You should try to use less dots so to be able to spread them in a bigger ...

An aspect not touched on directly: where does the "abstract shape"† appear and what are the chances the intended audience (customers?) will see it? Is the logo out in the wild enough for someone to see it and remember this company? I suggest usually the emphasis should be on the text so someone can remember that to search for it in their emails or on ...

Looks a lot like Arial Condensed. If it's just a placeholder until you can get an officially sanctioned logo Arial Condensed will probably suffice.

I like this match: LHF UNCIAL CAPS

This post on the Hearthstone forum suggests that it is Bliz Quadrata. It is far from exactly the same, but has similar characteristics. It was possibly used as a starting point then heavily modified for the logo. The font can be downloaded in WOFF format here then converted to TTF using this tool.

This is indeed a printed effect. I have a physical sample of my company logo printed on a book cover using this same effect to the degree that it is raised almost 1.5mm above the surface. photoslive.com are able to do the same - but i have not been able to determine what equipment is used.

If your client wants to use the font beyond the logo, he will need a licence, for sure. If he will use it on one computer, he should buy a one computer licence, if he will use it on 5, a 5 seat licence.

It is customarily not appropriate to ask for royalties on logo usage. Traditionally all rights are transferred to the client in logotype projects and the designer retains nothing. I've never, ever, ever heard of any designer trying to limit the usage of a logo designed for a client. That's simply not done in my experience. It's their logo and they need to ...

Apply a 3D Extrude to your text with options like the following: The 1° rotation along the X axis should be insignificant enough that there will not be any noticeable distortion on the text. You'll end up with something like this: You can then use Object > Expand Appearance to allow you to manipulate the shapes to recolor, combine shapes, or whatever ...

sure, just double click on the Blend Option tool and switch to [Specified Steps] and increase the steps the way you don't feel the curves anymore

Do you want to create a patterned background, or is something like this what you're trying to do? You're wording isn't clear. Sorry, but I don't have enough rep to post this as a comment.

Filters->Map->Make Seamles That simple :-) It copies your image offset by half width and height to the corners and with a transparent gradient, so that the original content is shown at the center.

If nothing works out, try making a compound path of the vector. Like if its divided in pieces then select each component individually. You can find it in the object menu. Once its all done, select the entire vector and make it a compound path. Worked for me.

There's not really a formal name but you can find it as Crossed X logo. Or just Crossed logo but that will yield more diverse results, namely including those with religious crosses as well. The design originally stems from New York Hard Core (NYHC), as described in this terrific article 22 Iconic Music Logos Explained Nowadays its frequently associated ...

This Logo was probably inspired by Cipher font. They added a lachrymal ear (in yellow) to the 'g' in the logotype much like Georgia or Baskerville.

Embroidery requires specific file formats designed for the particular embroidering machine and the size at which it is being embroidered. Essentially, someone has to tell the machine where to put each and every stitch. This is not typically something you need to deal with--it's something the embroiderer would create based on your existing files. As for the ...

I am going to assume you want to know how to send the image as it is. If you select the text, then right-click on it and select "create outlines", illustrator will automatically transform the text of the font into shapes as if they were done by the pen tool. I hope this answers what you asked.

I think the lesson I learned from this may benefit others in the future: When it just isn't working, try re-thinking your design. Sometimes it's good to just play it simple. Although the simplest solutions can often be the hardest to reach: While this isn't related to the question directly, it's indirectly important: I kept working a design that didn't ...

I had the same issue when designing icons! To get rid of distortion, go to: Transform Panel and click on the additional preferences button (that button in the top right of the Transform panel with additional options) and make sure "Align New Objects to Pixel Grid" is NOT CHECKED. That way, when you combine shapes together or move stuff around, it doesn't ...

Here's a quick take on your original idea using the same lines as the X to create balance and combining parts to reduce the overall size of the logo. Personally I believe logos should come down to the simplest form possible to create a striking presence.
