I think that they all look very clean and professional, my favourites are definitely:

  • Frontier Builders
  • I-Bless
  • Surf School
  • Revolution


I do however think that Kadios logo has too many conflicting colours in it; and that wire going across the CURS or the Curse logo is a bit of a problem from a readability standpoint.

Otherwise excellent stuff! :rockon:

All the logs are really good. Insane how clean they all look. I might suggest that maybe you can take the bar that is going through curse and try to wrap it behind curse in a oval end and stop it by I. I say this cause it make the word hard to read. You are really good with logo design.

I also think they look pretty good. I'm not a big fan of the SURFING sd logo though, as it definitely does not compare to the rest of the logos you have done. As far as the iCurse logo goes I'd keep the line, but drop out the red background for the tip. Instead just make it one solid shape from end to tip that is red so that you get more of the devil's trident clearly. Then remove or reduce the white space in the gaps of the letters that the line cuts through.

The whole i(something) is now, but what happens tomorrow ? Metaphorically speaking.

Absolutely gorgeous. Just one note, I found the colors on the kadios.com logo look a lot similar to the ones on the Picasa logo. Just my opinion. But very very nice :)

Use a maximum of 2-3 colors. If you're not already look into using illustrator.

Make sure to avoid reflections and excessive gradients. A good logo can be rendered at several different sizes and maintain integrity.

The point of a logo is to be simple but memorable. Remember: simple.

Simplicity is king and typography is god. Do a heavy amount of research into typography and purchasing fonts, you'll need an effective arsenal of pro class fonts to contend in the major leagues of design. Helvetica, Futura, and Gills Sans are among a few of the best fonts available.

You're off to a good start but it'll take a good amount of time to really grasp onto those concepts and some things really aren't instant fixes.

You don't have any real bad habits save the reflection use and some of the gradients being unreadable and overly noticeable. What you need now is experience over anything else.

As a fellow graphic designer, I find your work very satisfying. The only thing that I don't think works is the background of the "I Bless" logo. Maybe if it was blown up I could see it better, but the low opacity makes the background very hard to make out.

I also think that the reflection on the "I Curse" logo would only really work in a website application. If it was being made for a sign or a van or something, I would lose the reflection.
