comment Critique: How can I improve my logo design?
We need more data to appropriately critique. Who is the target audience? How is this company unique? What are the goals of the logo? In which context will the logo be used in? Etc.

@Lèsemajesté good to know! Interesting stuff.

@VadimBerman I think you are muddying the terms 'SpreadSheet' and 'Database'. One can argue that a SpreadSheet is a form of a database, but most people that want a database, would know that they don't want a spreadsheet. If the argument is that Excel has a noisy UI, then--while it's a matter of opinion--it's one that I'd share. :)

I think that's entirely a matter of opinion. A valid opinion, but just an opinion.

comment How to reduce the size of a (chinese) .ttf font file?
Is that the norm for a Chinese typeface file? I know they have many more glyphs than a roman alphabet typeface, but that still seems excessive file-size-wise. Is this a reputable font or something grabbed from a free font site? If the latter, it may be simply a poorly built font file with way too many extraneous points in each glyph.

comment Logo / process critique
"my process" = what is your process? "final result" = what were your objectives? What is your business? What is your target market? In what context will the logo be used in? (In other words, we can't really answer your questions without you providing us a lot more details here. Give us the design brief, for starters).

comment Why are thin webfonts so popular?
@user568458 in terms of overall UI, I agree. Apple wasn't innovating much there. And while sparse sans-serif type was established well before hand (I think the Zune was the first 'big' use of it as a primary UI design element) I think iOS7 was the first to adopt a thin weight typeface.

"easier on the eye" is mostly subjective in this context.

@GokceOzan it depends on what we mean by 'light' but typically typefaces with a 'light' face also have a 'book' face. The latter is the preferred text face. Light it typically reserved for display usage.

"what purpose does it serve in spite of "it looks good"?" = does it need another purpose?

I'd lean towards cliche more than derivative, but sometimes cliche's work. They are cliche for a reason, after all.

Can you explain how forcing the naming of every row, table and cell is a improvement? (Not questioning that it is, but having an explanation as to why it's better would make the answer better).

Anything can be rethought, but not every rethinking produces something better. And ryan is correct, a spreadsheet is a table of data. As for graphs and nodes and such, that's all great, but that's a visualization feature on top of the table of data.

Anything can be improved, but consider that the spreadsheet has been around for decades and decades. It's a 'basic tool' in the sense that it's designed to do one thing very well. Akin to a Word Processor--another 'basic tool' that, while has a plethora of functions now, is still essentially the same UI it was 3 decades ago.

comment How to make this hand-colored drawing even more fancier?
These are great visuals, but would agree that it's somewhat counter to the question...which is that a particular illustrative stye has already been chosen.
