    if the icons were slightly smaller and aligned to the left or something i'd think it'd look nice

    also no offense i think the the typography for that "beeko" logo sucks, but that could be just me being very nitpick-y when it comes to using humanist fonts in logos

    Edited:

    the exit button should also have some more significance, invert it and put it in a box or something.

    please elaborate on the typography

    idk it needs to look more noticeable in a passive state

    Edited:

    you also need to display the character count somewhere plus you could also have the send tweet button grayed out and transparent when nothing is in it.

    or alternatively you could do something like this



    and when you click it it already selects the textbox and all you have to do is type

    Edited:

    and you know, as for typography in the logo:

    there's no distinction. many logos have plain and simple typography separate from the symbolage but it doesn't fit. it lacks enough distinction as it is and it feels like you just kind of typed it out there without really thinking about how to fit it.

    plus it's a humanist font, i tend to really hate humanist fonts when they're not being used in interface purposes - maybe it's one to many times i've read a paper with calibri, but i still kind of hate them. there's some good examples of them being used nicely in logos but i mostly think they're overused - they lack the attractive styles of other sans serifs.

    kind of a dumb and not that well-thought out example, but here, i made a mockup



    maybe think about integrating it within the logo somehow? it's fine if you decide not to, i would just try some other fonts out

    sometimes i wonder how people fuck up kerning - hell the default kerning looks perfect as it is, how do you get it so that each letter looks like it has drastically different kerning????

    That's not how it works.

    The normal kerning is set by the font, not the program you're using.

    Some letters are more or less perfectly kerned together, whilst others doesn't work for shit, because hey, every letter combination works differently together.

    28 entries and I haven't won any contests! The day I win one of them is going to be So fucking good.

    Is anyone here familiar with blurb.com or any other similar online book publishing facility?

    Hey Facepunch, I am not very good a graphic design and need a bit of help. I am designing a T-shirt for my Universities Frosh week and the theme for the specific shirt I am making is Alice in Wonderland. The Base color of the shirt is going to be neon orange, and we can only use two colors for the print. Here is what I got so far. Do you have any tips or suggestions on what to do? Anything better that can be done with the Alice in Wonderland theme? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The text seems have gotten a bit lost in the tree, you could try one in which the tree doesnt have that white outline, or have the text below the tree
    anythingy really, to make them more distinct

    Either make the reflection really visible or just keep it white.

    Other than that it works. Nothing special, but it gets the point across.

    Fontwise I find the font a bit well round and comicy, but then again as you know I'm a diehard sans-serif industrial/geometrical lover.

    I've had that channel with that name for about 2 years, so the name isn't really something I'll change. We're the ones who make Teleported into Minecraft so the logo is based on the main character from that

    I want some art direction challenges. Give me a fake band, album title and their genre or an author/book title and what the book is about. I will do the first five or so suggestions.

    A death metal band cover for a band called "Pneumatic auto-eroticism". The band members literally have no foot in design or graphics what so ever thereof lacking any hints or thoughts about a certain style, you'll have to improvise it. All they did when they asked you to do it was pointing you at other death metal band covers and said "yeah, man, just, you know, do it kinda like that."

    A book cover about being social in an office environment, the book is called "desk corners". You have to include a witty slogan.

    A logo for a social medium (a chat and video kind of program or whatever).

    An abstract t-shirt design illustrating rain and relevant feelings.

    A commercial poster for a perfume. Directed toward women at the age range of 10-25 years.

    Times.

    Nothing too wrong with it if it fits the work, but being overused it's easier to hate when recognized and/or used improperly.

    in a related question, is there a difference between Times and Times New Roman or are they the same thing?
    Completely different fonts really, they are going for the same style and look, but they do so very differently, do a comparison yourself and you'll see. Everything is better about Times in my opinion.

    Yeah I've used Times a few times and really liked it, but someone told me they thought times and times new roman were the same, and ive never used a computer with both on to compare.

    Lyon's my go-to serif generally, and it's fairly similar to Times New Roman so it should work for you.
