Designers

Would love some logo feedback (also looking to hire designer for touch ups)

Here's the logo and some additional information: http://i.imgur.com/90M7zzt.png

For those interested in the job (contact me at cwrichardkim@gmail.com):
The Old
We find that our current logo has a range of issues:
1) It’s too bland. We strived for simple, but ended up with bland.
2) Unrelatable to our primary audience (college students)
3) We strove for: Sleek, high quality, class, professional, fun

The New
We’re looking for a new identity for our upcoming expansion
1) Color scheme. Finding a color scheme that fits us is our primary mission. The colors have to work across the platform

dealing with a distributor (selling a font)

Hey all.

I am a new font designer (though not new to the art of typography) and I have recently finished creating my first completed font. It's a TrueType font. It's a highly original and stylish display type of font.

Anyway, I was thinking I was gonna try to make some money with it, and was wondering if anyone out there could offer some guidance and advice. Anything I should know about finding and dealing with a distributor? Do I need to make them sign something to keep from getting ripped off if they prove to be scandalous? (I'm always suspicious I guess)

I'd rather not have to market it myself even if I had my own website, setting up a shopping cart system etc..

Thanks in advance.

Absolutely best free alternative fonts for newbie designers?

Hi, name's Lars Johansson. ( *ducks for obligatory Swede-jokes*)

I found this outstanding site trough some searching on the web, for resources and information on fonts and typography.

I'm a hobbyist web and graphical designer, as well as an amateur comic-book letterer and colourist.

I'm also an editor for a comic-book fanzine here in Sweden, and one of my duties is the design of logos and promotional fliers. As such, I have been reading up on what is essentially considered to be the VERY BEST of the best, of the best, ( and on and on ;) ) fonts that a modern graphical designer needs to have in his arsenal.
