I have a laptop/ phone case design I want to pull through. The general idea revolves around the animal parrots and the show 'Ugly Betty'. I'm very excited to squeeze that into my time. I will try to get it out in 4 weeks time - more or less.
Always make it bigger than it would be or specified. Otherwise, you will realise jagged lines or blurriness. When you do scale it down it will be crisp and ten-times smoother.
My logo designs always begin at 2048px resolutions - the larger the better. Great for web-designs, large billboards and small prints.
Logo Designing Tips
K.I.S.S (Keep it Simple, Stupid).
Don't over complicate things. Too much details are a mess.
Use two subtle symbols. E.g. Evernote (elephant and paper-fold).
