    These are pretty good. I hope your client doesn't go with the 3rd one, because it looks a bit corny. The second one would be my favorite, but the top one is so much more relevant. I mean c'mon it has Mr. Miyagi's freakin bandanna. Try swapping the type.

    Not bad. The style of the 2nd one is the most original and the one that appeals the most to me, I mean, 3 out of 4 sushi-places use the black/white/red colorscheme. =)

    The last one has to many gradients and isn't as strong. Obviously it depends on what the client wants to communicate. If they want to seem affordable and friendly (for kids perhaps) then it would be an appropriate look, but I would further develop the character and tighten it up, otherwise the 1st and the 2nd are much better.

    Raoul has a point, perhaps you could try the design-element from number one with the rest of the design from the 2nd?

    The type of concept four was a little hard for me to read, especially on the grey background. I like the idea behind it, but to my eye the "I" and "Y" kept flowing together into a single shape I couldn't decipher. With some work though I think it would be my favorite.

    Concept Two would be my favorite.

    It is bold and attractive, yet keeps that Japanese zen spirit to it.
    It is simple and clean and uses colors which are very appropriate and would give a fitting atmosphere for a high end sushi restaurant.

    Love the subtle and elegant Samurai face design.


    Concept Four would be my next favorite.

    hey guy. nice works! i like the 2nd one best. simply because it's the one that appears to be the most conceptual. i dunno how to word it properly, but i've seen too much japanese restaurants relying on the color scheme red/orange/black.

    to have a japanese restaurant pull out a greenish color and the way you handled the colors together, i think it's really good.

    concerning the logo, i like the first one best. i just think (IN MY OPINION) the letter "i" from miyagI could be inverted into leaning towards the right. because at first i sort of read it as "miyaga".

    hopefully, you're not offended. i only suggest, im not telling you what to do. good luck!

    Damn haha I posted these and totally forgot about this thread

    Thank you all for the great comments I really appreciate them. As for what the client chose I hate to say it but they went with concept number 4.

    It's generic I know but they wanted familiar themes.

    Here's a little photomanip poster done for a company that builds running tracks.

    The colours appear washed out because the colour id is set in CMYK rather than srgb for net viewing will upload a newer version soon.

    With regards to the logos above, one thing I always do is start designing the logo in black and white first, before moving on to adding colors/effects, etc. I was always taught that if you can't make a logo look good in black and white, then you can't make it look good in color either. I'm not saying yours aren't good though.

    With regards to the track poster, you definitely need to make the logo and phrase at the bottom stand out more. Drop shadow would be the basic way to help this. Maybe try putting them in the middle of the sky instead? Lots of possibilities.

    @ConstableMurtis: That's exactly right I usually always do that. The thing is I'm showing here the presentations as are shown to the client . Yup I changed the those somewhat to make them pop out more but I seem to have misplaced the file but will update it when I find it. Thanks for stopping by.

    @asudo: Thanks mate I feel the same way about them.

    Here's a greetings card done for KAF, one of the largest Vegetable and Fruit suppliers in Dubai.

    yeah be careful with the logo, the first one is really hard to read, might make it hard to find the place if someone thought it was called miyaai

    second one is my favorite one
