  1. Paris is actually in the process of releasing a new logo: Not as fun as the original, but excellent use of the Eiffel Tower.
  2. Hey Jimmy!, Thank you so much for this advice. While MJWalker45's specific advice is helpful, this is more what I am looking for. I know many designers are self-taught, so I wasn't sure what the predominant feeling would be about going back to school. Night classes would definitely be tough, but I do like that you were able to ease into it a bit. Also, thank you for the self-directed learning ideas. Just the fact that I am excited to learn all of these things speaks volumes.
  3. Hey Everyone, My brain fought posting this question for a long time for fear of negative reactions or criticism, but I just have to put it out there for peace of mind. I am really interested in transitioning to a career in the corporate branding/logo design/graphic design world. I have seen other posts here before, but I think my situation is a bit different, so I would love some feedback. I just turned 34 and have a very solid corporate job. I am married and my wife has a good job as well. We don't have any debt (although we are trying to buy a house) and no kids...yet. All of that means that I have a decent amount of disposable income to use either for taking classes, doing internships or just trying to start something on my own. While I have a very good job, I am not a good fit and cannot see myself being there long term. I have an IT background, but I work more on the database side. However, I have found it pretty easy to pick up basic Photoshop and Illustrator skills. I have several areas of interest, but the one I keep coming back to design. My question is how do I begin this transition? How do I get more experience and insight into how this industry works? I am willing to start from square one, but I am not sure exactly what that is. I have read just to start making projects and that is a good start, but beyond that I want to know how to get into that world. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And please note that this is not some half-cocked, pie eyed idea. I have been thinking about it and researching it for a very long time, but you can only read so much before acting.
  4. Black and orange is a solid color scheme (just ask the Flyers.) However, the gold (or whatever) destroys that solid aesthetic. I would love it if they made their primary D logo orange like, you know, an actual duck's foot. I like your design because it goes with a white logo, which pops, but subtly includes orange. I also love the simplified throwback logo. However, in trying to picture your design IRL, I can't help but think that some of the detail would be lost if it were as small as you have pictured. Maybe it wouldn't but I feel like it would look better if you made the sleeve patches larger. Might sound picky, but since the rest of the design is great, I figured I'd at least throw in my two cents.
  5. I love the color scheme and the logo. Just two thoughts: 1. The dark gray in the roundel obscures the pike itself. I would consider either lightening or darkening it so the fish pops a bit more. 2. I think the plural of pike is just pike, without the s.
  6. Hi MBurmy, Just curious, can you confirm that Burlington CC's logo isn't copied? My high school (St. Lawrence in Mt. Calvary, WI) uses the same logo and I always assumed it was unique, given it's sketchy quality and awkward looking Swiss man. I actually want to do a redesign, so if it is just a copy I will take more liberties.
