best-logo-2013-8.jpg
10 KB,
unless I have to design an illustrative logo, this is usually how I design logos. however, I've been told by professors and other students and designers online that I should be unifying my text with the icon. would changing the text color to a color scheme that matches the icon fall under unity or do I have to include another additional element to tie an icon to its text?

pic related but it isn't my logo, its just how I prefer to design iconic logos.

>I've been told by professors and other students and designers online that I should be unifying my text with the icon.

What they mean is that the type should reflect the style/feel of the logo.

Think about the Nike swoosh and its logotype. They're recognizable separately, they work together, and you don't need color to identify them.

>>274414
Previous poster is right. Look at your example, Antarctica. The shape of the penguin mimics the shape of the lowercase 'a'. So even though the icon and type are physically separate, they're still unified

alright, thats what I was hoping.

I appreciate the insight, I feel like now I can stop trying to force elements. people kept suggesting to try adding a background to every logo I did and it was driving me crazy. Or they would suggest connecting the icon to the text which I think does work in some situations nicely but It doesn't mean I want every logo I make to be designed that way.

Hi there anons, I'm struggling to figure out why the rendering of my vid in after effects takes forever to finish, plus it always remains stuck in the same place and hang there forever. The video is 60 fps, coolor 16bit. Any suggestion? I'm trying to render it since three days.

There can be very many issues. You have to be more specific about your project, export settings and compositing that you're doing.
>>
60fps and probably a very high resolution + length of the video and complexity of effects and animations matter most. also your renderstats.
are you rendering quicktime?
for those kind of vids i recommend to use adobe media encoder to render int in mp4.
>>
>>274254
OP here
I've tried to low the res from 60 to 30 fps, but still remain stuck on the same place. And is quit odd, cause there isn't anything special in the place where it gets stuck. Moreover, no error log

Not bad considering but it could be better. The colored shapes seems pretty arbitrary and do not add anything the way they are. Everything is stuck in the upper left corner leaving a huge blank space. Though leaving white space is important, it feels unbalanced the way it is now.

What’s the format? Aren’t the photos going to be really small? Sometimes it’s better to use only one or two pictures, people usually wants to put a maximum of pictures just because they have them but it doesn’t make the design...

Pro tip for life. you are litteraly wasting money to get the degree. You already seem to do pretty decent art. Just start now. this is the mistake youngins make these days. You think you have to get the degree to get the job, then whine on the internet when even entry level jobs wont hire you because they require a few years of experience.

Just make a couple of really good pieces, or gather the art you already have/are proud of, make a portfolio, and start putting yourself out there.

I guarantee if you...

Hi /gd/. I'm a senior undergrad studying design and comp sci. Web and interface design are my strong points (probably all the time spent with computers) but I'd really like to improve at print design. I struggle with things like brochures and magazine layouts in comparison. I can make them look *fine*, but not often great.

I already have the technical knowledge of how to use InDesign, but I feel like I'm not always really using right (if that makes sense). I've read the Vignelli Canon and Grid Systems by Muller-Brockmann, but I'm searching for...

I think vertical rhythm is something I struggle with from working so much with web. Web designers have 100 ways to craft horizontal grids and an endless scroll to cheat verticality with. Obviously, the same methods aren't conducive to print whatsoever.

This can be achieved in both Photoshop and Illustrator. Illustrator is the better choice if you're going to be working with a lot of vector graphics and illustration (surprise surprise).

I'm guessing you're going to torrent it anyway so you might as well download both and see which one you prefer. There are countless tutorials out there for both if you need help learning.
