Helping my dad out here, looking to design a simple graphic, nothing over-the-top. This is just a quick one I whipped up. I'd appreciate it if any of you guys could help me come up with some snazzy ideas. I've seen some of you create some amazing logos in past request threads, so I'm extremely interested to see what you guys could come up with, if anyone is willing. Even if you don't feel like actually making any images, even suggestions are more than welcome. Very Happy



P.S. I'm broke and jobless, so I have nothing to offer, other than that I've been here a while. Wink
Since it's technically my dad's request, if one of you actually do a really nice one, I'd see if he could front some payment for it if you expect it.

No real restraints. It's not going to be on a banner or anything, it'd be used on cards, papers, emails, etc, so it doesn't need to be huge, but anything can be scaled down. Smile

Alright, and what's the Texas Development Service all about? And is the shape of texas a must for the logo?

Maybe that helps for checking an other way. Tried to keep it easy, a little bit "classic" cause it's for your dad Razz and easy. The font is "myriad".



And yes a further specification of what he's developing would be helpful Wink

sorry mate but it shows. it's almost an illustration, not a logo. here are some key points to create a logo:

- simplicity
- readability at small size
- readability in black/white (1 color)
- relevancy with business area and/or service uniqueness
- few or no small details, they get lost at small sizes
- graphically balanced (composition)
- modular (if possible)

hope this helps. cheers.

Playing around. This is a good way not caring about my own jobs Wink Don't really works as a logo, but I like to play around with the 3D tool in Illustrator. The idea behind is getting some analysing style into the shape of texas.

wrong !!! it would TOTALLY work as a logo in a slightly simpler modified version (no transparencies or reflections)
