    that is not a logo, look at professional logos and actually go through the steps to make one.

    all logos where done on paper so i just you do a bunch of sketches but before that collect information, who's your market, your aim etc.

    rapxic: saying something is not a logo is just as bad as declaring something not art. Even a bad logo is still a logo.


    That being said, I always suggest doing a brainstorming session and coming up with a page or two of pencil sketches of different logo ideas. Come up with something iconic with visual impact and then work to refine the colors, linework, fonts and whatnot. Simple is usually better. I'd highly suggest www.dafont.com for a great repository of free fonts that are sorted by category. The font you pick is as important if not more important than your butterfly logo so spend some time to try to get the font correct.

    There are already some good advices above. First of all you should think of the business you are designing the logo for. Who/what are they? What do they want to be? Then think of the customers you are designing the logo for? The age, gender etc. Is it for children? Should it look childish opposed to being hip, cool and young. It should work in a small size and black/white. First desing the logo in B/W mode, when you are satisfied with the result, then add color. Think of the color carefully. How color appears in nature, different cultures and in general the feeling/meaning of each color. In the end make sure the color works and is visible in small size and from a a distance. As to the actual shape -> simplify, have fun with it.

    I think hakepe has good points to make. Make sure the logo works as a united composition, at the moment you have two elements floating in space with nothing connecting them, and your elements are too far apart. Also you want to minimize the amount of details so the image is impactful, immediate and memorable (ie the little face, the little arms). Here's a cool site to help you get inspiration and a nudge in the right direction:


    Also (and this goes for everyone) - and I can't stress this enough - DONT USE DAFONT OR OTHER FREE FONT SITES! If you want free typefaces go to fontsquirrel.com as at least they got pro designers to dig through the free-font galaxy filter out the crap (98% of it). I've been planning for a big typography essentials thread (if anyone is interested), but for now:

    Yup, would go with the two main points above. The colours do look a bit washed, and the butterfly does look a bit like it’s just stuck there. I’d also say that it’s a bit large for the lettering being used. Something to remember is that if the design is picked up it might appear in everything from stationary, to plastic bags.

    The lopsided eyes give an impression of 'zany' rather than 'cute and girly and young'. I agree with comments like simplify your design, use repeating shapes more.

    Have you considered trying a no-face approach? It could still look cute by having an implied face just from the antenna, and perhaps by having the head area point towards a flower.

    I know this is an old thread (poor Graphic Design subforum v_v), but I'm curious to see what kind of changes you made and what was the final product.
