    i dont think the problem is what effects you can apply to this Abstract G, i think you should be producing a series of Samps of different logos. block in were you want the text to be. dont worry about backgrounds, just worry about geting a good logo, and what words and text you want to have on, below, or beside your logo. then deside what the best typeface for that text would be something that works with the logo. i think it would better to draw out your logos on paper first. keep the colours to a minium, 3 or less. keep it simple. if there is on in colour you like, draw it up in just plain black and white and see if it works well. also blow it up big, and shink it down tiny and see if it works still. also i think logos are best created in Adobe Illustrator as a Vector becuase they give you the option of limitless size where in photoshop, it will be destorted and pixilated.

    hay guys, still awaiting feedback on the latest car sketchs i did in my pervious post's on page 8. (i know there not great but would still love some feedback on them) on another note. i have a block of Super Sculpty polymore clay sitting here on my self for about a year now, i have no real use for it for University. i had bought 2 slabs of it a year ago thinking id need 2 blocks to make my character. i ended up only needing the one, so like i said its just siting on my self gathering dust. so it leads me to saying ... i think i might use it to create a Terminator Skull, hopefully if it turns out really well, il add extra details to it like a red LED for the eyes. and do my best to paint it professionaly with metal paint finish. here is a page from "Terminator Salvation - the official movie companion", Tara Bennett.

    if you keep the logo and just have GDD. are people who see it going to get what its all about. are they going to know its a design company or something else. i dont think it should be abraviated. or at least use something like, GD-Design

    hay, the job thing is a "work placement" where i work with a company for a year to gain experiance and to learn from them. i do this between the end of my 2nd year, and before the start of my 3rd year. its part of my course at university, but its not compulsery. but from talking with Past students and tutors they strongley advice to do it becuase students who took the year out learned around 2 years worth of knoledge in 1 year. over the students who stayed and went straight into 3rd year. hope that makes sence. p.s. - what you guys think of the car sketchs i had uploaded. i know there not fantastic, but i was wondering if there had been any improvment or anything ?

    hay, im not liking the logo its really Busy, and also very plain at the same time. the text is really hard to read also with that drop shadow. the symbol its self tho is a good place to start. perhaps have the text running along the curve of the G symbol. it also seems to me to be very abstarct. a good logo should work on its own and in black in white. and it shoulnt really have anymore than 3 colours. finaly i would consider using a better Typeface (font)

    hay, i didnt find that harsh, i actually 'Get' what you mean. and it will be something else for me to think about when creating my website. i understand that my work that i show on my site should be the most important thing to the viewer. in my defence i have two points to make. 1. shouldnt my website be an extenstion of my work, (meaning it, in itself is showing i know how to do HTML, Flash and website design ?) also im a student who will be leaving Universty in about a years time, so shouldnt my website Be "Flashy", and "yea .. Look at me" becuase il be trying to get jobs, (as long as it dosent come across as "Yea look at me, im big headed about what i do"). where as im aiming for the "hay look at me, stop and look at my intresting website" (rather than a plain old boring one) 2. i feel layout and good use of Typography and Gridsystem is just as important as the Design and graphics and the work i show. becuase again it shows that i have a good understanding of how to layout my work and understand the fundmentals of using a grid system and even bending the rules of using the grid. i understand the comment you posted. and i will greatly take it on board. i also dont feel i have the time to sit back and just practice my art skills all day untill they are up to par even tho i know i need to improve. what im trying to say is, that i need to do both at the same time. (both practice and improve, and, working towards finising universtity, my website and geting a job) it seems like a big task to accomplish but i gota do it, i have to succeced. thank you for your comment Sketchyd

    hay guys, just got an email back from a Placement Job i applied for but was turned down. i had asked why i was turned down at this stage, and what i could do to improve for futre applications. this is the email i got back. the company is called "The Design Zoo" based in a near by city to mine. (about 35mins drive away) Sorry for taking so long to get back to you but we’ve been flat out. Although you had good sketch work and a solid understanding of 3D we felt that there was a lack of HTML & CSS experience in your portfolio. What we would say would help your portfolio is an interactive flash presentation of a 3D model being exploded with information about its benefits and features. This would improve the interactivity in your portfolio. I hope that helps and we wish you all the best in finding a suitable placement position. even tho i was turned down for the job, i was glad to hear that they thought my sketching and 3D understanding was good. that i just need to work on a few areas to up my game and portfolio. its made me wana do some sketching and stuff now

    thanks gringoire, my current website was very plain to begin with, i just wanted to block in the main pages as a foundation because at the end of the day im paying to host the site. the main elements on the current site i wanted to get in place where my chosin colour schyme of Dark Grey for background, Orange for higlights, white for text, (and with the new updates im making) blue for Links. i feel the Dark background makes any colour on the pages stand out more vibrant. as for my main logo, i created it with a few elements in mind. 1. my name "Mark Keenan" 2. my star sign Scorpio 3. the Scorpio starsign is an M with an Arrow tail 4. Design i think its simple, too the point, and is personal too me. for a while i was wondering should i call it Scorpio Design ? what you guys think about that ? but i feel i settled to having my name in place. with these mock website designs im trying to just get the general layout in place. then i can work on the graphics and illustrations, then animation and polishing it up to look Professionl and formal, yet relaxed and artisic. this might clash so im trying to get the ballance just right. Its early days still, but in the meantime im producing these mock websites so i get a better idea of what elements works and what doesnt. all feedback welcome, tips, or things to improve. Cheers.

    Hay guys, now that im finished for University for the summer, now is a good time to practice my skills and get them up to Par for my Final year etc. im hoping you guys can post a few different ways that i can practise my basic skills. eg, drawing in perspective, eclipse from different angles, and lighting and shadowing on geo-forms. this way you guys can point me in the right direction on what needs to be improved. Thanks.
