    I have to say that I see some great work on some logos and I need some help. Everyone I design is a little to busy and I know that I do not need that.
    I want something that really stands out and sticks.....
    My company name is Digital Memories.
    I do computer work: Inventory of property: Photo and Video Restoration: Etc

    Thanks in Advance MC

    To be fair everyone wants that. However most people don't expect to actually get it.

    Maybe if you post what you have done yourself, you might get some suggestions.

    it's quite a pansy like name, so it's kinda tricky, i'll whip something up.

    when doing logo's or anything i tend to take an A3 piece of paper and do a few sketches of designs, then scan in the one i like the best and maquette over it and fill it in, the best logo's tend to be nice and simple, don't feel the need to do a backround or anything, the two words on top of each other in a nice suitable type font will do fine, though i cant find a font that suits it, so i'll sketch and scan one.

    your files may be too big to attach to your post, in which case Photobucket or ImageShack or another picture hosting place is your friend.

    if i could be bothered i'd take a proper macro shot of a suitable flower and do an effect of hundreds of pink pixels flying accross the bottom to complete half of the flower.

    Why do people bother posting requests for free design?

    Maybe it's a good spare-time exercise for some design student? Or something. Anyway, I would recommend a small tag line on the bottom of your logo: "...with Jack Handy"

    Hey, I think I found just the thing in an old folder!

    The bitmap brains, of course, reinforce the "digital memories" theme. Playing volleyball with a wad of used bandages, the characters remind us that all material things are temporary and will, like our mortal selves, ultimately return to the earth. At the same time, they are bandages, reminding us that even our frail bodies and possessions can be healed, extending our limited existence. This powerful philosophical expression will ensure that people remember you when it comes time to preserve their precious documents.

    Here is my try at the logo. It was compiled with a few suggestions above and an hour of work. Yes, I know. An hour.:)

    Here ya go. I whipped this up in 10 minutes because I was bored. Nowhere near my best work, but it is 1:30 in the morning here (and I'm not a pro at this... Can you say Photoshop Elements 3 only? :eek: ).

    I don't know if this is anything near what you were looking for, but you didn't give too many specifics on what you wanted.

    I took the photo on this by the way. :D

    EDIT: Wow, by complete coincidence, I used the same font schaef used... I was just looking for some script font, and Brush Script MT just happened to be the first one I found.

    HiRez you are right about the Jack Handy part. TheSailorMan's logo needs it.:D
