I'm really feeling this design!
Just one crit, in future use kerning
e.g. the word DE(gap)SIGN and also DET(gap)AIL.
My boss pointed this out to me on my first day at work 17years ago (sigh). Now you will see bad kerning everywhere.
Hope this helps and keep up the good work
Overall, pretty nice, if a little eclectic. I'm not convinced of the cyan-magenta-yellow colour scheme though. It makes you look like youre a printer, rather than a designer. Id suggest using something in either a monochromatic or perhaps a split complementary colour scheme.
It makes use of the (IMO) overused elements, ie "stenciled/spraypainted" look, "fake" wings, but quite nicely. I do like the cyan-magenta-yellow.
One thing... with "Graphic design - logos - advertising", doesn't graphic design cover logos and advertising? You might want to nail down a specific category of graphic design, such as "print/web design" or something. Just my opinion, take or leave. Oh, and the CAPS ARE A bit headache-inducing, but that's not important.
1. you don't need your logo on both sides (you don't want to overwhelm the viewer)
2. you might want to think about changing it from 'graphic designer' to communication designer (sounds more professional)
3. I personally don't think you need to state 'graphic design, logo, advertising'if its just 'graphic design' or ' communication design' those pretty much encompass all those element so you don't need to clog up that small space with excess type.
4. If you have 'graphic design' under the 'oliver design detail' logo typeI don't think it is 100% necessary to have graphic designer under your name (all depends on how simple you want to go).
5. I sort of agree with the above comments about how the pink wires seem to be out of no where but the contrast in colors is aesthetically pleasing (to me at least)
Other than some minimal layout issue and simplifying it a littleI have to say this is probably one of my favorite cards I have seen as far as this style is concerned.
Graphic Designer = Communication Designer. Communication is the act of getting a message across in an understandable manner (the media in which you choose to do this, be it print, web, speech...etc—is irrelevant)
A graphic designer communicates to its audience—hence communication designer.
and yeah, it sounds way better than 'Graphic designer'—(my personal opinion).
cool, thanks for the comment and all the suggestions. I think I will go back to this and make some of the adjustments that you and others have made. I'm not 100% happy with the logo. I don't really like the middle of it, what do you think?
same thing most ppl have said about the pink lines.
nice design, but a few technical hang ups perhaps.
the 3 colors in the 'logo' may muddy when you mass print the cards, because the colors are so close theres a lot of room for them to bleed into each other, the text may drown against the pinstripes too when its printed.
