    You're a web designer that has no idea how to do web design? Talk about a bad career choice. You actually expect to have someone here do the work so you can get paid?

    You should probably try to find another high school student in your area to help you. Many us are professionals who don't take kindly to being asked to do their profession for free.

    The OP clearly states that he/she is a web developer. Despite the fact that there is quite a bit of overlap these days, web devs are not traditionally expected to know how to design much of anything.

    The post also states that he/she was hired to create a logo, not an entire website. I don't generally hire someone who washes cars to service my engine.

    It seems a little strange to me that your client is giving you an e-mail account, and I see you listed Macview.ca in your signature on this post:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=169181#12

    And in another post, you mention "starting a new site" and ask for help with a logo here...

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1212629

    So... is this really for a client, or for yourself?

    The advice that IgnatiusTheKing gave you regarding finding another student is spot on! Good luck.

    I think that sums it up very well, a client or more likely for yourself...

    OP if you bothered to read my links in your previous thread you might have discovered a little more about the process and tools needed... Saying I don't know Photoshop indicates you didn't read the links which would have put you on the right path. It would have given you the knowledge at least to create a simple wordmark, you'd be talking about 3-4 hours of reading, learning an application then creating the logo.

    Again I reiterate what IgnatiusTheKing said, most professional designers wont invest experience, time and resources into something without reparation.

    I really think you need to read the links provided, you might learn something and it will add to your skillset for future projects
