It's great but we'd appreciate that it's less than 580 pixels wide (and at 72dpi, not 300) so that those browsing on 800x600 can see it all!
What do you use to design? Photoshop? A common error. DO requires that all logo designs are initiated in true Vector...
If you're thinking of submitting work or running a competition, please read the FAQ (http://www.designoutpost.com/faq.htm) and go from there!

Just a quick tip (not to step on any toes), but you may want to avoid having elements of your design run off the canvas. For example, what if the client wants the design aligned left for any number of reasons? Even if you use the same background colour throughout, you're left with a problem that might not easily be solved.
Also, you may want to vary the values between your highlights/shadows so that they're easily identified even at a smaller scale. When they're so close in value, they tend to run together when reduced in size.
Here is a quick image to illustrate what I mean:

Anyway, I hope I didn't insult you. I mean, who the hell am I, right? I'm just trying to help you out. You can choose to do whatever you wish with the information. Including ignoring it. :)
Take it easy, and good luck!

Just to throw in my two cents...
Also remember, any good logo looks just as good in one color.

Any good logo should be easily-read in one color :)

what do you think?

I think it's made in Photoshop...or some other raster prog.
Say your client wants to put his logo on the side of a 747? How are you going to enlarge it and retain absolute 100% quality? <_<

Nicely done, but you're still designing outside your canvas! ;)

... or print it on their ONE COLOR laser printer.
Here is your logo in true 1 color - black. You lose half the image.
This is what it would look like faxed:
On the Discounted Beauty concept, you are asking your viewer to do way too much.
You have a stylized text, which is enough alone with a simple graphic, but you have chosen to add a contrasty graphic, which makes the text hard to focus on (remember, your eyes always move to the contrasty stuff first), then you have added some symbology (the dollar sign), which requires further processing of the image, and finally, you have dumped a thick drop shadow "glow" around the image which makes the image hard to focus on.
There are elements that alone can be used very effectively. Remember that logo design is getting a message across in the simplest terms possible. You only have a limited time to make that message stick and if the image is hard to read or tough on the eyes, nobody will stick around to read it.
Keep it up! Asking questions is the first sign you are ready to embark on future greatness. Never stop asking questions. :tup:

Forgive me for asking but how old are you jzoestyles?
We have a policy that we can only accept 18 years or over. :)

05-03-2004, 04:23 PM
Just checking...we have to be certain that applicants are over 18. Good luck! :)

The biggest issue is that your logos are not vector. That's a requirement that all designers on DO are required to adhere to. Try working some up in Illustrator, CorelDraw or Freehand.

...and keep it simple, Sherlock ;) Try not to add elements but reduce their number.
This includes all kind of graphic elements: illustrative ones, typographic ones, structural ones (like intersections of lines that "support" your design), coloristic ones etc. Less is more ;)
