Socoder -> Off Topic -> Designing a Logo

Fri, 03 Dec 2021, 22:35
Does anybody here know of somebody who is good at logo design?
Fri, 03 Dec 2021, 22:35
Am happy to give it a go, made a fair number of logos in my time, what's the details?

I'm rubbish at designing logos, which is why I did what I always do, and coded something to make title cards for my games and such.
It's far from perfect, doesn't include any imagery, only text, and is nowhere near as good as having someone design a proper logo.
Not recommended, really!

Your titler actually makes some nice things, but not something that fits in with what I need. But, good for title screens and saved a bunch of them.

Okies I need the following 3 logos...

Logos need to "work" on sites that will be responsive, and perhaps get stuck on a shirt or hat to wear in videos.

1. Letters to Carolyn

This site will be used for publicly posting letters to Carolyn now that she is gone.

2. Heart 4 God Ministries

This will be a ministry site. Ie, Biblical & Christian in nature. Logo needs to reflect that. There will be a yet untitled podcast on it at some time.

3. Something on My Heart

This will be a site for a topical radio show and the logo needs to reflect that. Will also focus on loss and starting over again and life in the small town of Hartsville, TN and life in the south.

Hopefully it will eventually find its way on the radio station I met Carolyn at that I am back to being around, but not yet officially working there, but it has been hinted at. They have a lot of open slots where they are simply running old Art Bell shows.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Cool, will have a go at them when I can and post the results here once they're ready

Here's a quickie idea for the first one, needs refining but, just to get the ball rolling so to speak.

You made me cry, for real. So deeply touched! Thank you for remembering she loved hearts. This is amazing and you really nailed it. I love it!

Only three alterations I can name.

1. If the lettering and the upside down chevron (for lack of a better term) between the heart and the envelope could be this shade of blue.

2. If the heart could be this shade of pink.

3. If the envelope could be this shade of purple.

Other than that, if the background can be kept transparent so it can be used on different colored web pages and if the image is large enough that it would look good on a tshirt. Will likely get a couple made so I can wear them on videos.

Very Nice Rychan! A couple of things I could suggest and feel free to disregard are:
* The L doesnt look like a captial letter
* The hearts and letter image may look better if it was the same height as the words themselves.

I like TRGs suggestions, especially the lettering being the same height, except for:

1. The pink outline on everything is distracting.

2. On the envelope, he made the chevron pink, instead of blue, and made the background between the chevron and the heart and the chevron and the envelope blue instead of transparent and it takes away from the original design a bit, where the chevron is acting like an arrow showing the heart goes into the envelope. I still think the chevron needs to be blue and the space above and below it transparent.

However, I think that the stamp and address fields on the envelope should also be that shade of blue, instead of transparent.

3. Also, I think the address fields should be all the same length (but not as long as the top one) and there only needs to be three of them to fit in with what we use over here. And with only three of them, they need to be more centered in height between the bottom of the envelope and the stamp.

Amazing stuff, though.

After some thought, I do like the blue above and below the pink chevron that TRG did (I know completely changing what I previously said). Think what is making it look off to me, and would make it more cohesive is what I mentioned about the address/stamp fields.

So, other than the pink outlines on everything, keep the changes TRG did (which have grown on me), just add the changes to the address/stamp fields.

Thank you Rychan & TRG.

Okies, here's another couple of flavours.

I might move the "arolyn" a tad closer to the "C" as the spacing between te letters seems a bit off in the font.

It's all in vector format so can be scaled and turned into whatever other formats you need with ease.

I think maybe we should stop now. This last two completely changed the colors around which loses the meaning and the significance of the colors being used where they were.

Bad day, heart going crazy all day, to the point of no sleep and an extremely hard time breathing, been hyperventilating much of the day.

Not to cause any undue stress but here's a scalable eps file which can be customised in Illustrator or converted to an SVG file online to be edited on there instead.

Wishing you all the best.
