Critic our logo/branding
0

We're a nonprofit that does arts education and we're looking for some feedback on our logo designs. So I have to questions

1 - Where can I find a good logo designer?
2 - what do you think of this logo/branding?

The current branding says 90s all the way.

The Greek style type and the colour palette are dated.

The icon itself has potential if paired with a typeface that is less decorative. When using colour, I'd try to choose something fun like an orange or lime green OR something primary like Red or Blue.

Agree with TkDesign,
Furthermore, greek-like type does not match the icons, that remind me of native-american symbols, calling for a brighter/warmer palette (black/orange/brown). Last consideration, icon will need reworking, beacuse they look slightly clip-art...

1 - Email me and we'll chat!
2 - The only treatment that is close to me is your letterhead design. Even then, it's all caps and all letterspaced. I think you need a typographic solution that condenses it into separate lines (the * represents your logo):

                  *
       Creative Arts
Education Foundation

            *
    CREATIVE
     A  R  T  S
    Education
   Foundation

Having the mark split your title doesn't flow as well:

        Creative Arts
                 *
Education Foundation
