  1. Replaced the RAM cards in my MacBook Pro, going from 4GB total (2x2GB) to 8GB (2x4GB). It was pretty simple and I can already see a marked improvement in performance. I haven't tried running my Creative Suite software yet, but hopefully it holds up. If not, the next step may be replacing the hard drive with a solid state drive.
  2. A propos for a sports logos/graphic design forum ...
  3. So I posted last week about the company I work for circling the drain. Well, I don't have to worry about that anymore because I've got a new job! New field that I've been trying to get into for a while now, nice raise, better actual benefits, three weeks vacation to start. I'm thrilled!
  4. The company I work for was unable to make payroll today. There have been a few times this year when it has only been partial payroll, and I was one of the lucky ones who did get paid, but nobody got paid today as scheduled. This ship is sinking. But I have been looking and I have a couple of interviews for new positions this week, so hopefully something pans out.
  5. First, this should go in Concepts, not General Design. But don't post it again; a mod will move it. I don't understand why the arm stripes don't continue on the other half of the sleeve on the home and away. The Colorado and U.S. flags are going to be too low to be seen; they'd be covered up by the player's gloves. I think you need some kind of striping around the hem on the white jersey. And on the navy jersey, I think your maroon elements need to be outlined in white because there's not enough contrast between the navy and the maroon. Not a huge fan of "AVS" on the alternate; it looks like some kind of acronym. Actually, longer words seem to work better on diagonal text jerseys like this because it looks more like an actual sash.
  6. SC with Jay & Dan starts in September, running nightly at midnight ET and repeating through until morning. Just like the good ol' days.
  7. We picked flowers first -- my wife had eucalyptus and thistle in her bouquet to represent Australia and Scotland, respectively, which are countries of our heritage. From there, we did a few things in green and purple/navy blue, most notably my tie. But that's about it.
  8. I think the base font here clashes with the rest of the PL branding. To me, the fonts they currently use are more rounded and are almost equal in height and width; same goes for the lion's head logo. I think you've have better success starting with a number font like Gibson or Gotham. I realize those don't fit on the backs of jerseys very well, where you have more room vertically than horizontally, but maybe condensed versions of those fonts might be a good place to start.
  9. No kits unveiled yet, but FC Edmonton has announced they've signed a deal with Inaria , who IIRC did MNUFC's kits recently.
  10. You're putting too many elements into too small of a space, and it is resulting in large swaths of unused space and a visual hierarchy that's all out of whack. Start with the most important thing in the logo. In this case, that would be the name of the company, "Mark's Cars." This should be the largest, most dominant element of the logo. This is what you want people to remember. Then you can move into other graphic elements. The old car looks cool, but right now it's a big block of black that dominates everything else. I'd tone it down a bit; either use a car silhouette that isn't as big and blocky, or go with an outline. Think about what graphic elements you actually need. The crossed screwdrivers don't add a lot to it, for me, and they contribute to awkward unused spaces. As well, the "1975" text is a bit superfluous. The date established might be a bit more important in a mechanic's logo than in others, because you want to convey experience and trustworthiness, but there might be better ways to incorporate it. Don't constrain yourself to a circle, either. Start with the name and the car and make those look good first. Then, if you feel like it needs a circle around it, try it then. But maybe not everything is inside the circle; maybe some elements extrude beyond the edges. Just don't limit your creativity right off the top by saying that everything needs to fit within a circle. The black and grey colour scheme is pretty drab, too. Now, if that's what the client says he/she wants, then that's the general direction you should go. But don't be afraid to go outside the box.
  11. You gotta upload that bigger. We really can't comment on it unless we can see more of the detail.
  12. I'm allergic to cats, but it depends on the cat. I can't even be in the same room as some cats without feeling like crap for three days afterward, but the cat that my now-wife had before we started dating has never really set me off. However, when my in-laws' cat came to stay with us for a while, the few symptoms I had got worse, so I went to my doctor and got a prescription for the drug Singulair. It's often used for asthma patients but can also work on allergies. Things got better and I still take it to this day. But I always keep a stash of Reactine on hand in case I come into contact with another cat (or sometimes their owners) that I react badly to. I still sometimes get itchy, red eyes from our cat as well, but Reactine helps that also.
