I don't think this is working for the kind of business you are trying to solicit.

A few problems. 1. The icon looks like something that would be on a surfboard sticker.

2. the name - it reads to me more "we" bruh- which makes me think of some kind of social media.
Even as web bruh you are using a word that will come and go as a trend, once the trend is dead you are stuck with it as your company name and will have to seriously consider switching names. Same rule applies to using super trendy unknown fonts.

The type very similar to comic sans which is a no - no!

Altogether, anyone who is going to pay for you to design a wordpress site may be turned off or just think it's not for them. When in reality it is.

I wouldn't think college students would be your target market but that's what it's looking like.

Thank you for your comment! We kind of want to stick with the name to target the millennial people around our area, but maybe we will shade "web" to emphasize that it's web. We appreciate your feedback!

Really cool idea.

The symbol needs some fine tuning. I would give all folded fingers the same size, for the sake of simplicity.

The font is pretty cool and looks nothing like Comic Sans (really?) But I agree that it reads as "we bruh". It sounds pretty funny though.

In this iteration, the symbol kinda overpowers the word mark. I would revise the composition somehow.

Overall, good job so far!

Keep it up!

Yeah, really. It resembles it with as stated earlier "The rounded edges and semi skewed straight lines."

Don't see it? Sorry. It is still a poor choice for the typography.

No I don't see it because there's nothing to see. This font has squat to do with Comic Sans. Period. And you'd see it too if you actually knew what you were talking about.

Because like your nonsensical diatribe on the Square Root logo, your posts and comments just go to show you are completely clueless about logo design.

It's OK to be a mediocre designer and give people a honest feedback. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, however misguided it is. But to be a mediocre designer, with a crappy attitude nonetheless, and to repeatedly leave phony and misleading comments is just plain wrong and should be called out every time.

Again, you are in serious need of a reality check.

I said there was a resemblance. That's it. I didn't say that it was an exact replica. Regardless, I.M.O. for what he is going for there is a better choice.

Furthermore, for someone who has a lot to say about everything to everyone yet never posts anything is questionable to me.

You are not God buddy. Take a step of your high horse, go back and read some of your own critiques, you'll find inconsistencies and hypocrisy between designs.

Please stop embarrassing yourself.

The whole "you don't post anything" argument is irrelevant and desperate. I showed you my portfolio, you've seen my work. As I did yours. And it was a real eye sore, to say the least

And when I tried to help out and give you some pointers, you just blew me off with the same old butthurt BS ("But the client asked for it!" and "where are your logos?) Before asking me to redo your logo for you. Desperate, I tell you.

So instead of trying to get back at me for calling you out on your bullshit, why don't you focus on you own skills and try to become an actual good designer?Instead of passing judgement on people who are already better than you are.

So you're right, I'm no god. Just an average designer with a few years of experience. But I can understand that looking from the pit of mediocrity you seem so confortable in, regular designers may look a bit mighty to you. Next time do grab the hand people are giving you and join them in the real world. It's cool there, we have cookies.

You are really piece of work.
A. I have never shown you my portfolio. (besides a few logos which I don't count as portfolio pieces)
B. I have never seen ANY of your work.
C. I certainly never asked you to "do" ANY logo for me.
D. I never blew anyone off. You just don't read what people write and formulate your own conclusion.

It actually reminds me more of this font.

I actually forgot what typeface it was but I'll tell y'all when I get home. Thank you for your feedback!

Looks like this to me- and for the fun we are all having debating this, you say skewed lines- dude those are straight AF. Its a slightly rounded san serif with a somewhat geometric base. It possesses a clear structure to the letters. Comic sans is a "hand drawn" style font.

When I see bad advice being given, I will say something.....or someone else on here will. And advising him to change the font was just not warranted. It suits his logo just fine to me.

I went with Norway Round because of the structure of the lowercase letters, but this one works too.

Either way, it didn't resemble a comic font whatsoever to me. Its just a bubbly font.

Thank you for your comment! It's a good point to make them the same size because we really want it to be simple and modern. It's so relieving to know that you like our font choice. I almost used Gotham Bold with it, but I saw that it's to edgy and doesn't seem to match our logo. We appreciate your feedback!

I disagree that "bruh" is a trend. That word has been a staple since the 90s from what I can remember. whether it be the SoCal surf scene, any urban or hip hop scenes, etc.

If you're looking to attract young, slightly trendy, millennial aged clients who need web, you're definitely in that direction. And if that is your audience, then you definitely have a market for it.

Thank you for your comment! Wow I didn't realize the term has been used since 90s? That is really an unbelievable fact. And yes, they really are our target audience, and maybe some not so millennial too.

We appreciate your feedback!

Have you thought about any other sort of brand elements to go along with this logo? I think it could be very well complimented with a solid pattern and color palette. You might not be at that stage yet, but I'd love to see this in more than just black and white

I actually consider this as a rough draft. I just needed to know if the logo makes sense with the company name, and also if the typeface was a good choice. With all the gathered information, I will change the necessary changes including our choice of color palette. Thank you for your feedback!

To Carlos:

I did give you my online portfolio in one your posts. And I did see your Behance profile. It wasn't hard to find.

Anyway, I'm done wasting my time with you.

Sorry, Chris for hacking your thread with such petty drivels.

Look Man,
Life is too short to argue.

To me at this point it’s all water under the bridge.
I’d rather focus on helping others and getting critiques.

If you want to hold a grudge that’s on you.

I’m at peace. I would love to see your work though.
In any case. See ya round’ mate.

Fair enough.

As I said, I already gave you my portfolio's address in one of your posts. Anyway, here it is: www.chputz.com It's a bit dated now, I haven't updated it since I'm not freelancing anymore.

I hold no grudge because I'm in no position to hold one. I was just trying to help.

Peace.

I think we got off on the wrong footing mate.
You don’t seem like a bad dude. I’ll even go as far as to say I do apologize if I had an attitude.

That being said seems more good can come from working together and no that doesn’t always mean agreeing.

I understand, I haven’t been able to do much updating and fine tuning to display my work. Oddly enough I may be in a position now where I need to work freelance before starting a new position!

Thanks for the link I’ll take a look.
