A logo for a freelance design company...
This is a logo for our new freelance design company. I have since changed the bright green to a more calm green. Other than that pleace give me your thoughts! Thank you!
I'm not a fan of the combined character and text thing. I'd separate the two and try to make it work with no colour - in the general style of design professionals.
I don't think a designer's logo should be so heavily overpowered by a colour (I did read your preamble about toning it down), the colour ought to be merely consequential or the main event. As it is, it just another aspect of a quite complicated design.
i agree with the above, i think you should keep the text and monster seperate, you can use the monster as your identity. I really like the monster, and i also like the typography. maybe try a combination of the monster above the text
Overall, I like it. I don't mind the text being in the monster, but I think it'd be nice to try and see what it looks like below the little dude or next to him, etc.
The one thing I'd definitely change is the brightness of that green. Keep it in the green family if you wish, but (unless you're going to have it printed on a press with florescent PANTONE inks, as someone previously pointed out *eyeroll*) it's probably not going to ever print that brightly if you print it digitally. I'd just sub it out for something less bright!
Cute little dude though, I like him!
Can I not like the name of the company? lol Creation Monster really doesn't flow off the tongue so easily. Is it too late to change it to Creative Monster???
The only other criticism is there are wayyyyyyy to many hairs/spikes to deal with. Simplify those and then you got something here!
Oooooh, I totally agree about "Creative Monster" rolling of the tongue better! If you can change it, I definitely would.
And now that I think about it, taz is right about the too many hairs/spikes thing too! I think he'll still look just as cool if you simplified his silhouette quite a bit, and then the detail won't get lost if he's printed smaller.
