Hi /gd/

I am looking for a graphic designer to design me a logo for a small business that I am starting.

I have done a google search for graphic designers in my city, they are usually large businesses that want in excess of $1000 to design a logo.

I have a few hundred to spare but not $1000, but that is not my only issue with these companies.. I look at their portfolios and most of the designs REALLY suck (pic related).

So, does anyone know any websites where I could possibly find a freelance graphic designers willing to do logo designs for small...

Hi, that would be great. If my thread gets deleted just post on /gd/ as I will be monitoring.

I photograph real estate and have decided to start my own small business, the business name is PROPSHOTS

I have an idea of what I am after, I will explain it best I can.

I want the logo to BE the business name (as in I would like the font PROPSHOTS to BE the design) as opposed to a great logo with plain black PROPSHOTS font underneath it etc.

I prefer square type font and really like these polygon...

I hope this is the right bored for this kind of stuff. I'm using 2d design but I'm having trouble making the angles and spacing correct. The book shaped things are supposed to follow the inner circle as well as possible and they are also supposed to be spaced apart equally, My ideas is to just do one quarter of it and then copy it to the top to create a half.

tl;dr
help make shapes positions correct.

No easy answer. Almost any software (including Ai) will give you the wrong answer by default. Most software will give you a very wrong answer (e.g. sRGB averaging or GIMPs "lightness"), other software will give you a less wrong answer (using ITU-BT REC. 709), but in the end it doesn't mean the colors will actually come out equiluminous from your printer.

You can compute it if you have the color-profile of the printer.

Kind of at a halt with this design. It's for a podcast type thing called Heart 2 Heart. Any ideas on how I can improve this?

hi /gd/

I'm having trouble in Adobe After Effects. I've started making a starry night animation for a background which is meant to be 15 seconds long.

when I try and see progress of the animation, it plays for 3-4 seconds then jumps back and loops, rather than playing to the end of the animation.

put the marker behind the pre loaded green line and try playing it from this point.
otherwise render it and see if the finished animation has the same problem.

How important is it to follow branding guidelines? Are they required?

gallup isn't even in the top 10k on alexa... Either way, the most a company can do if you don't follow their branding guidelines is usually to forbid you from using their branding (which they own.)

Some companies may care more than others. Most companies understand that being ubiquitous is the over-arching goal, and having consistent branding is just one component to achieving that. If an important website that will help you establish your brand slightly violates your branding guidelines, you would typically ask yourself if it's worth forbidding that website...

I'm designing a facebook page for a freind. He has a phone repair business. The company doesn't have a logo so I'm just using regular text.

I have two ideas but I'm not sure which one to go with. The first one looks cool but it's it doesn't seem like something that would reflect a phone business. The other one is kind of generic but, to me, it looks nice and friendly and more fitting.

Which one should I choose and how can I improve them?

I realize the text on the first one isn't readable, I'll get to that.

Text should have snapped in at the same moment the clock's hand came to a stop (right before, so they'd stop at the same time) Either that or have it fade in without the horizontal movement.

Audio is cringe worthy, should have gone with a deeper sound. Or one that fades away a bit at least, rather than cutting off straight away. The final stop of the hand shouldn't have made the same sound as the two others since it's never locked in place like it would have been after the completion of the...

Well, anon. Adobe Illustrator is a fine tool to use for typeface design, but you might run on to some trouble when you need to assemble all of it into an actual usable format (say, for example, otf).

You might want to give FontLab or BirdFont a go.
