New Logo

Posted 11 February 2009 - 07:37 AM

What do you all think of my new logo. I'm redesigning my site to give it a more welcoming feel. You can check out the existing site at http://www.spyderwebsolutions.net/ . I figured i would start with the logo.

As a professional designer and color theorist, and you're trying to give your site a more welcoming feel, having grey, mechanical fonts should be out.

That'll be $50 please. :D

I like the new logo. Now if you can keep that same feel as the logo with your site, you will be on the right track. As rodstol said, most people don't want to go to a website that claims to be professional and see spiderwebs and gothic fonts.

Keep it simple. Yes, you can use your spider theme... but keep it professional. Pastel and Light colors with soft blends are much easier on the eyes, and will keep people longer at your site.

Also, if you must have a fixed width template, center the damn thing. People who use big resolutions like myself (1600x1200) will simply leave your site due to the fact that it just looks horrible in a large resolution. Right now it doesn't even make it 1/3 of the way to the right of my screen, which is very unpleasant.




Overall, nice logo. Keep the same feel with your site as that logo, and it will be _MUCH_ better.

pr4y - I agree about the spiderwebs and fonts. The new site will be much better. Looks even worse on my screen resolution (1900x1200). The first thing i did was center the page. Thanks for the feedback, ill post the new site when I'm done.

Redesigned the site. Still needs some work, but I think it's much better than the old site. http://www.spyderwebsolutions.net/

It's clean and simple - but it lacks personality. It feels very plain in my opinion, concerning the logo - I think that have a solid color spider with no world would look more professional, in my opinion.

And when I say personality - I mean people. I hope that that was clear, not necessarily a person enjoying your services - but a person enjoying life with a nice marketing quip that serves your businesses purpose.

I like it. Except for the fact that it's a spider. Spiders are scary :<.

I agree with MarkoDaGeek, the newest version is much cleaner than the first you showed. Good work :)

the website looks a lot more clean and easy on the eyes, however i really did like the font you used on your first logo, did you make it yourself or did you get it somewhere else?
