Logo
« on: March 27, 2017, 10:02:00 AM »
Hi,


I'm working on a logo to put on my images as a signature, but I haven't done anything
like this before, so I'd like some inputs on what you guys think.

It is built on my initials. The "T" and "H", if you can se it? I took away one part of the H cause
it didn't look right, but maybe I was wrong.

Any input is welcome  :)

I like it but cant see the letters really.  :-[
My first though was it looks like the skoda logo...a bit...
...many rooms to explore but the doors look the same...

I understand what you mean by it looking like the Skoda logo. Had to check it out to se how similar they
where, but I think I'm in the clear  ;)

I think it's good it's not easy to see the letters. Like only if you know what to look for, you see it, but since
I've already told they are there and you still can't see them, maybe I have to fix something  :D

Well maybe it only me who cannot see it...
I did several logo designs before and its always good to make some versions. You never know...maybe the 3rd one will be your favorite.

 Honestly, I'm not sure I can see the letters either.

I like the design. The letters are there for me. Not too blatant, not too obscure.

I can "force" myself to see the letters but they are otherwise not obvious to me.
I would take a look at logos from vfx, film or other companies that you like and see what it is about them that is appealing to you.
Ask yourself what the pourpose of the logo is and if litteral legability is important or relevent.
For example the Planetside logo has no text on it but the shape of the ring round the planet makes an obvious "P".
Your logo looks like a receeding road or a ploughed field. I like the road idea but not so much the field ... that's just me thoiugh.
Also the thin inner circle is pixelating at low res, I would remove it and while you're at it check whatever logo you have at vairous sizes, small, tiny and medium and large. Also check different colour combinations. and against different backgrounds.

I think I may need to look again at my logo now :)

Alright. Thanks for the input guys. I will work more on this or try to make something new.

The goal is that it's just suppose to look like a logo, but if you know about the letters, you'll see them.

Cheers,
Terje

I've worked a little more on this.
Still the same style, but changed it a little. Is this any better?

If that was mine I would add at least the horizontal bar of the H.
As wide as the white between the black bars.
Maybe playing with bringing the vertical T bar closer to the top to create
a visual context so to say.
See example, just not as sloppy as I did.
And I would try to get the distance between the black bars to be the same.
Sometimes it takes a while to find the right balance.
Keep trying.

 8) From my point of view you are definitely on the right track now.
Clean and readable even at thumbnail size.
And I like the spiral effect of this version.

Hopefully some of the others will share their opinion, too.
