    Hey guys,

    I see a lot of people asking this, so I figured i would too, why not.

    I'm workin on a newbie site, what do you think of the logo I made for it?

    It's cool. If the audience is under 30. If it's for older people looking for a new way to make money they'd probably pass as they won't even know how a logo like this is possibly made, let alone all the new complicated stuff they would probably need to learn to jump into online ventures.

    (my opinion, HTH)

    Yeah, I do think that it looks pretty amazing, but maybe, as said above, it would depend on what age group you are trying to target.

    does it need to be italic? i'm not really a big fan of the italic font if it's not necessary by all means

    other than that it looks great

    Kayzne, as a fellow designer, i commend you on a really outstanding work. One suggestion, and this is probably considered old school, is to make the "A" in CASH more readable, maybe a darker dollar where the hole is.

    But is it really great as is.

    Good Job!

    Looks great if you can blend it with the site nicely.

    I agree with deepsheet on the "A" , although it's not terrible like this.

    What's your target market here? If you're looking for around college aged people, this logo is golden. One suggestion is to make the "A" a little more visible, though I could obviously still tell what the word was. I'd have the light source coming from the top-right or top-left. Just mess around with it a little. Post a bunch of examples and we'll tell you which ones best.

    Very nice.

    I would make the
    ........text straight and make the middle of the A a bit more reader friendly (less glass there).

    I love it as a teen and fellow designer. If you're targeting to me, then great job. If you're targeting to older stay-at-home moms or dead-end job people, then maybe not so much.

    However, you are using the word "newbie," and while it didn't technically originate online, people a bit more savvy in technology, pop culture, etc. usually are more fond of the word, so then you're targeting them well-enough with the logo.

    Also, some people said they didn't like the italics. However, your logo has to convey what you're trying to promote. So, are you mainly promoting methods to get cash fast, or are you promoting longer, more drawn-out methods? The italics are well-suited for the former, but not the for the latter because it emphasizes speed. Hell, someone even posted a F&F poster.
