design

Hi guys, I'm new to this website and was wondering if any of you could give me some feedback on a logo I've worked up for a design agency. Thanks.

Hey there Typophiles!
I've been interested in type for some years now but never really tried myself at this discipline.

I recently started thinking about a simple sans-serif font, based on my natural way of drawing letters. So I opened a Tumblr to document my creation process and share some studies on well known sans-serif fonts (mainly Helvetica, Futura and Century Gothic). What you'll find now is pictures of some of my very first drafts and visual studies of those fonts (comparing sizes, angles and so on, trying to understand their logic). And hopefully you'll find in some weeks/months/years a final OTF file for you to download.

Here's the site!

Friday 6 May 2011, 9.30am–6.30pm

This one-day conference will investigate the status of graphic design history today, with an emphasis on the making and using of it. It will review the state of affairs, looking at where we are, and questioning where we could go next.

With Christopher Burke, David Crowley, Rick Poynor, Sonia de Puineuf, Alston W. Purvis, David Reinfurt, Catherine de Smet and Teal Triggs

The Brander: The new online magazine portrays brands and their creators

Who is the person behind successful brands? Starting March 10 on www.thebrander.com, stories will appear about people who have created brands with a lot of zeal and run them successfully – sometimes even turning into a brand themselves. An online magazine launched by Zurich branding agency Branders.

The Brander provides insights into worlds that are not accessible to everyone. Insights into the world of small, large, well-known, as yet unknown, local and international brands. To this end The Brander provides in-depth articles, high-quality photographs and footage, as well as large photo galleries to highlight the people and the stories behind the brand. Because good brands tell a story.

Hello,

I've done some research but not sure if I'm choosing the right aesthetic choice. Being a student Graphic Artist for some time now, yet I still have much to learn.

My question, I'm designing a film-magazine cover, contents, and several spreads for my portfolio to graduate from school this year. Moreover, I have selected Mr. Olson's Klavika typeface for call-outs, headlines etc, but I;m not sure what serif face I use for body copy that will compliment Klavika. As of this moment I'm using Caslon 240 I believe.

Are there any suggestions that I may consider?

Best,
Aaron

I am needing some suggestions to help me finish up a logo I have be asked to help redesign. Before all we basically had was just our text name. Then they added our denominational symbol. But we are needing things to be more modern. Here are 3 designs I pulled together what are your thoughts or is there another direction I should go in?

Hello all,

I'd like to announce the release of the work-in-progress version of my new typeface, Otama. All thoughts and opinions are very much welcome and appreciated.

Free to download from www.timdonaldson.com/otama-ep.zip

Cheers,

Tim

The successful typefamily Skolar by David Březina, has been extended to a pan-European character set. This version supports around 90 languages that use the Latin, Cyrillic, or Greek scripts, featuring over 2400 glyphs. The Cyrillic was awarded a Special Diploma at the international type design competition Modern Cyrillic 2009 and won the first prize in the Cyrillic text type category at Granshan 2009. As a bonus, Skolar PE can correctly place any accent from the font above or below all Latin letters, a useful feature for many linguistic applications.

Hey everyone.

I just published my first Zine-it's free and is supposed to be published online!

You may or may not like it. If you don't, please tell me what's wrong with it. But here's the finished design and copy, all set in beautiful Futura.

Go nuts and share it with everyone if you like it enough,

enjoy!

Thank a lot and greetings

Pollen by Eduardo Berliner

This typeface finds a perfect balance between technical excellence, careful design of letter forms for extended reading, and a measured dose of charm and personality. Its informal feel allows for successfully typesetting a wide range of applications, from magazines and fiction books to advertising and websites.

I'm currently working on a project at university, trying to create a typeface in both English and Japanese that work with each other seamlessly. What Im curious to find out is;

- Your thoughts on the idea
- Any suggestions or recomendations
- Any really good or even really bad examples of these two languages at play.

Thanks for your help.

I've been away for a while, but I'm back with a new logo that needs critiquing. The company produces and sells high-fashion jewelry and other related products. The lettering is built from scratch. How does it look?
Any comments appreciated.

I am working on the logo redesign of E&P Federal Credit Union and would like some input on what I have so far. For a little background, E&P has been the federal credit union for employees of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (hence E&P) but they are looking for a brand new look as their clientele demographic and business model shifts. Their main group of members now come from both a few local colleges and employees of the environmental protection agency. They are also planning to shut down many branches and become more of a virtual financial institution, where almost all banking services would occur through a new website.

What they want to say with their new look:
• Professional and trusted
• Helping the environment (by going all virtual)
• Friendly/personal
• Secure

Hi guys,
Where can I get some affordable graphic design resources from? Can you please tell me if I should search for design bundles? I saw on different websites some bundles at really affordable prices, but I wonder if the products are really quality products or I might have a surprise.
Did any of you bought the Design Cocktail bundle from Designious? I see they are having another bundle now and I was wondering if their products are worth buying?
Thanks!

DesignChat

Well it's been an extremely long time since I've posted on here but I wanted to share a project that I've been working on with everyone. About six or seven months ago I started helping out with DesignChat.

DesignChat is a live video chat that airs every Wednesday night at 8pm CST. We broadcast from smbolic (formerly SamataMason) and interview some of the coolest people in the industry for about an hour each week. So far we've had some amazing guests like Milton Glaser, Erik Spiekermann, Debbie Millman, Jessica Hische and many others.

There is a job opening for a Font Administrator at the Penguin Group USA, based in New York. Below is a link to the information on their website and an overview of the requirements:

http://us.penguingroup.com/static/pages/aboutus/jobopportunities.html#job05

We are currently seeking a Font Administrator to support the design, marketing and managing editorial communities throughout the company by managing the processes for procurement, accessing and archiving all licensed fonts.

Specifically, the Font Administrator:

1. Negotiates agreements and interacts with our contracts department to ensure their compliance with our requirements.
2. Uploads and activates fonts on our corporate server and grants access as per the licensing agreements.

So I am currently performing an exhaustive search over the internet to find an internship calling my name in NYC. I'm a senior at the Savannah College of Art and Design and am looking for an internship over the Summer of 2011. I will do next to anything (my soul is up for bid on ebay as we speak) to further my passion for graphic design in NYC. I am very interested in web design, typography, logo design, and package design...but am willing to turn to the dark side (joke) :) advertising if I needed.

Anyone have any advice I can take and run with? Or maybe even some comments?

thanks a bunch, guys!

I need someone to design and do the layout for my album sleeve. My artist name is Slow Medicine and the artwork is as per my photo on this site.

As you'll see,the front cover still needs some work. But as the design is for a wallet format for a CD, there are three more pages to lay out (we have additional art work). So there's a tracklisting on the back page, a page of info on the inside left, and then the third page is where the CD itself is housed.

Oh and I have a - very small - budget.

Anyone interested? Email me on toby.manning@blueyonder.co.uk

BTW: the music is art rock (I can send anyone who's interested some examples).
