Separate names with a comma.
Discussion in 'Design and Graphics' started by switters, Sep 24, 2006.
as a complete layman I would like to comment that 1-5 seems to have very thin lines - would be nice to increase them a little bit so you notice them more. 6 seems to be too much thickness, but looks nice
Hmmm they seem to be very complex overall, a possible way to work with this is to make two different logotypes - one containing the graphical logotyp (in this case the angle) and another both the graphical logotype and the name spelled out - if the graphical logotypy makes sense, then so will the one containing text.
alas, there will most probably be more skilled people commenting, but this is how I would approach it.
I like 6 the best, but you need to find a different font.
Thanks for both replies, I will edit the line thickness/thinness for #6.
Concerning, the fonts used, do you suggest changing both (1.gular & 2. systems) or one?
Do you have any font suggestions?
You people are life savers....////
I think the letter A should be visible, not implied, so there's no confusion about whether the name is Angular or ngular.
I'd vote for #2 first, with second choice #1.
I like the idea. What about taking the Level and making it vertically down and or tilted and adjusted to suit to make the A?
That's a great idea, Thanks, I will try that.
A few things are standing out on all of them that I would work on.
Your graphic is overwhelming the type both in size and importance, personally I would have the type read way up front then the graphic.
Economize. You are using a number of different things to support your concept, start subtracting. Hit one point home hard. To many ideas just dilute your message.
They feel a little too light and airy.
way too busy. a nice angled "A" at the front should be enough with the proper typeface.
I combined the previous 2 comments and will refine it a bit.
Here it is.
Thanks for the insightful remarks.
oops, previous 3. sorry
yeh - I agree - it's a tadge too complicated - how about using the A with the cross bar as the angle identifier...
I like the idea its a good start, but you have to keep it simple!
I think angular is a little too hard to read, you kinda have to guess the first letter.
Here is a really quick, but simpler version of your design...
my 2 cents
Thanks for putting in your thoughts, much appreciated.
here is a revised version.
I need the L/building in htere, it's for an architect.
The last one you put up is the strongest I think. However, I still don't like the font for "systems" and you really need to get rid of the "l" building. There is no reason for it. You should choose either the angled "A" (which is starting to look very nice) or the building (which doesn't look as strong) but having both still makes it too busy.
I don't think you need both to get your point across. It's overkill and doesn't look as professional.
I personally like the one with the building, but I also see your point of a logo being visually cluttered.
so here's another example using your critique:
As has been said, it's getting there. But I would strongly give some thought to William Faulkner's advice to "Kill your darlings.
You've got the logoform "A" going on, the relatively quirky font for "ngular", then you've tweaked the "g" in that, you've got the building letterform, and you've got the second face being used for "systems." It's just too, too much.
Keep paring down. Shoot for a result that hits a single visual note; it feels a bit like a cacophony to me right now.
aye snark is right - not sure if this looks architechturish enough tho...
I have no experience from design, but I feel the L building really isn't needed and adds confusion.
Just my two cents.
I agree. Keep with a regular "L".
This is a lot better than your first ones. It's getting there. I think what eyup posted above is a little more like what you should go for.
switters: I really like your last one. But I also feel the difference in the line width in the letters make the 'A' stand out a little too much. Also, I feel it is too bad that the whole logo cannot fit where the 'G's bar ends.
Concerning eyup's version, I think it looks too "sci-fi" for an architecture company.
I feel that the single red angle is very powerful... only the lettering that needs to be fixed.
#6 is my favorite, but took me a minute to understand the A in angular. I like the overall look and it's actually quite creative...hard to do in logo design sometimes.
Unless they specialize in super modern architecture.
I think some information about the company could be useful for the critique, actually.
Well, a friend of mine just graduated graduate school (architecture) and is starting a his own firm.
He made up the name and hired me to design a logo.
I say the top right is the best but the Angular font still sucks, well no sucks is too hard, but I think you could do better
I think you like that font a lot though so hears my suggestion:
if you want the top of the 'L' pointy then make the bottom of the 'G' pointy as well. (like in the third row second column)
the downslash in the 'G' and the 'R' is too fat
watch the spacing, it looks funny
Fixed the spacing issue on the top corner one and got rid of the pointy angles on the fonts.
