Hey design champions! Hope you’re all doing well and designing some awesome things! today we go over a few tips and tricks I think are important for making your logo design really good. The first tip is making sure your lines aren’t too thin. The strongest logos don’t have many lines, but if you choose to implement lines make sure the width is on the weightier side. The second tip is making sure your logo icon and your supporting text don’t fight for attention. If one is visually interesting, try not to make the other too complicated. Third, see yourself as simply a creator of icons, rather than an illustrator or a designer. This will allow you to create logo designs that are simple yet informative without creating overly complicated logos. The final tip is learning to embrace and use color. Color is part of the design itself, it conveys meaning, so remember to both consider the color you use and to include color in your final designs. Thanks so much for watching and being here you design champions. Every one of you make my life better!

This week I'm working on a branding project for kombucha tea – idk I really like kombucha and I wanted to make my own brand for it 🙂 I want to try actually printing labels, and putting them on projects to get legit photographs instead of putting them on a mockup digitally. I've never done that before so it should be interesting!!

Well, I just finished working on the prom tickets for my high school. It was a long process but I was able to manage. The hardest part would have to be making sure to use the right colors. I am happy to be a DESIGN CHAMPION! 😀

A logo design tip I learned recently is that it is best to leave colour until the very end for logos. At least when making one for a client. Color distracts clients from the design, so they might not go with the deign they like better because it is red and not blue for example. They don't always realize you can change that

@zimri, champ!! How do you rotate the guidelines in Illustrator at the Me Mapp logo?

I am working on a new internet booking engine for a regional airline, and I also need to import my psds to InVision. It's going to be a disaster haha

Its my 6th week into Illustrator. I'm working on finding a distinctive style of my own. Kinda how kit8net has his own style of using ellipses and rounded rectangles always, and Nick Slater's gradienting style is always consistent. I feel like I've been sorta copying and picking up whichever style felt nice to me so far, but with the latest one I posted on Dribbble, I really think I made a breakthrough. Also, I'm learning Animation this week. Made my first one yesterday. 🙂

Loved the video. Great work man.

I'm working on 2 WordPress websites after the hours. At work I have 4 videos to finish till the end of this week, one of which is an ultra-complex After Effects project that takes 1 minute to render a single frame on my PC at work… In 1/4th resolution preview. It contains many Cinema 4D renders. I think I'll ask my boss if I could work on it remotely from home. It's insanely stressful. It's so stressful that all I do is play Google Solitaire instead of working all the time.

Daesu says:

Reworking my portfolio the hard part is showing more about myself in the design of it.
