@JonasDralle but we do complain plenty about Volkswagens :)

comment How to convert Pantone 7C to TPX?
Oh wait. I had to google TPX. So TPX is a pantone identifier. I'm not sure how how--or even if--you can convert Pantone colors from print inks to textiles automatically. Might be a question you need to send to Pantone directly. (Also, Ryan is correct. C = coated paper. U = uncoated paper)

Pantone colors can't really be converted to anything. It'd be up to the other code standard to decide what their version would be.

I'm not clear on what you are asking. What about the red line to you want to replicate with the pink line? The only different I see at the moment is that the red line is thicker.

comment How to crop to fit to required dimensions without altering image aspect ratio
Are you asking how to crop an image to a new aspect ratio without losing any of the original image? If so, that's not possible unless you're willing to live with the distortion.

comment Fonts: screen vs paper
Finally, the 'more stuff on screen' argument isn't screen-centric. Open any magazine or newspaper and you will be bombarded with the same amount of extraneous noise. I don't think that is really an issue of screen vs. paper, but rather an issue of context.

comment Fonts: screen vs paper
@ZachSaucier well, nothing is ever 'wholly' an issue. But I'd say it's mostly an issue of resolution. Any other issues, while valid issues, really aren't issues in general as much as possibly issues in specific context with specific typefaces. That said, it is 'simply' an issue of resolution. 'Complexly' (is that a word?) we could argue there are some other factors. :)

comment Fonts: screen vs paper
@Alex there are both subjective and objective arguments for typeface 'a' over typeface 'b'. But those arguments are usually only valid for those two particular typefaces--not typefaces in general.

comment Fonts: screen vs paper
Sans serif fonts have been popular on screens due to the low resolution we've had to work with in the past. They don't reduce reader strain compared to serif faces, though. There's also no conclusive evidence that they are easier to scan and find your place with.

yes, good point. In the US it is very much "par for the course"

comment How could I spice this logo up?
Give us more to info to help understand your intent. Why did you reverse the F? Why that particular typeface? Why one shoe vs. two? Why did you place it at that angle? Why the big black box? What kind of 'vibe' are you trying to communicate with your logo? Who's your target demographic? Who's your competition? How will this logo be used? Etc.

well, the point is that it's not really relevant. Whether you use your own name, or a made up name, if you go bankrupt, it would still be associated with bankruptcy. And if you decide to form a new company, it's easy enough to just come up with a new name then. I don't think it's really an argument one way or the other.

comment Copyright issue producng vector artwork
Technically, it could be, but in practice, no, as you've found this is already quite common. Since these are for personal use, it's really not a huge deal. (I'm not a lawyer...)
