    My suggestion is that you eliminate the border around the logo. Way too much over-design. The border is too heavy anyway and detracts from the logo. Open it up and let it breathe.

    What's O.S.C.E.? Look at what's important.

    I think Gray pointed out what I was seeing, but didn't know it. Thank you.

    Maybe a small outline, if any.

    What is it about the need to wrap an outline around one's logo? The contents will not leak out and spill logo-goo all over the place. :-) To me, it's like a wall that keeps me at arm's length from the concept and says that I am not welcome. Look but don't touch. I've seen a lot of that on this forum lately: lots of egg shapes, outlines, etc. Folks, it's really not necessary; but this should not be taken as the final definitive statement. There are always exceptions to the rule. As an old professor of mine said, "Let me add to your education," just before he tore my design apart... in front of the whole class, yet. :image09:

    After that very public drubbing, we retired to a local tavern and quaffed several (more than one) beers.

    Ok, then, I gotta ask.

    Why did you outline 'Olden Gray' in your avatar? :)

    Well, "Olden Gray" is not a logo, it's a name/signature and I didn't outline the name and the image with a border or combine disparate elements to create a commercial logo (which an avatar is not). The type is an outline type which also seemed to fit the image as it looks "antique-ey.". I'm thinking an avatar (a substitute for the real person) and a logo are as different as apples and oranges or ball bearings and baseballs. Besides, the damn thing was so small when I was designing it, I had to outline the blue type just so I could see it. Anyway, it works for me. Hope this explanation helps you. :image24-1:

    Now, with that out of the way, we need to get back to helping FISSI.

    It's all good......just giving you a hard time.

    I think it comes down to personal choice and application when I determine if an outline is needed.

    Now, wake up and get back to work! :)

    This is getting pretty close to a debate; and I can pretty well handle anything you throw at me. But, you are right about "personal preference" dictating design, yet, on the other hand, "personal preference" doesn't always meet the dictates of good design. A lot depends on the professional designer and his/her competency to say what constitutes design, and isn't that the purpose of this forum... to assist people who aren't designers with solutions to their individual problems?

    P.S. I ain't mad at anybody. Too old to let it bother me. :image24:

    Who's to say what dictates a good design?

    I've found that you'll get many different answers from designers.

    Sure, there are some basics, but a designers personal style plays a large part in how they put things together or what they classify a good design to be.

    So, you see we agree.

    This is a place to offer advise and experience to those that ask of it. But, we should be very careful in how we word things, because it doesn't always come across the same way in text as it would if we were talking face to face.

    My point, I really thought you were putting down anyone that thinks outlining their logos is a horrible designer. I don't think that's the case now, but it took a few posts to get that.

    Well, you were wrong in your assumption that I meant to "put down" anyone. That's what happens when we assume. I've tried to be as civil as I know how and my only intention was to offer my experience to assist fledgling designers and other non-professionals in solving graphic design problems. I'll be glad to give you the last word here, then you will hear no more from me on this topic.

    I understand that now. It was just how I read it first. I was wrong, I admitted that, but it was because of how type can be misunderstood.

    Geez.

    Why does it say 2006 on the logo if it is a new one?
