Workin' on new website banner! A, or B?



  • The idea looks great. I think that the logo could use a bit of hierarchy or a focal point. Now you have 2 competing elements the letter B and the "Bee logo" leaving the viewer a bit unsure as to what to look at. Have you tried something like this for example?

  • @hakepe I like the top version of this but with the 'Freelance Illustrator..' text position of the bottom one (although some tweaking may be required to not have the text and bottom of the B logo too close).



  • @CLCanadyArts Your what if nails it.



  • @hakepe said A, or B?

    hakepe, @Braden-Hallett
    "A" and "B" are both nice options. "B" is my favorite because It feels open.



  • @CLCanadyArts I like the bottom one of these 👍



  • @hakepe I really like the top version! I think this would be perfect.



  • @Braden-Hallett I agree that the logo should have some hierarchy. I actually like @CLCandyArts solution.

    I also think you can drop the "freelance" from the text. You can mention that you're a freelancer in your "About" section of your website.
    Also this font is a little difficult to read coz it's so thin and there are too many words. Maybe if you decide to drop the "freelance", you can also try to reduce the height of the font so that it's not soo long for a small size font.

    I really like your logo though! 🙂

    Hi Braden! This is just my personal opinion but I think you may be overdoing your banner. Not only do you have a bee insect and the word “Bee” on your logo, yuo also have the letter “B” on your banner as well. I think you need to sort it down to one Bee whether it be the insect, the word, or the letter. Please take this with a grain of salt. I’m sure you’ll make a great banner.



  • Looking at my mocup again today, I would try to tweek the upper version a bit by making the letter B on the left smaller and moving the text "freelance....etc" below the logo. So simplifying it even more so that the "bee logo" is the first thing to standout. It is a nice logo, so you might give it some space and extra punch.



  • Oh wow! I woke up from a birthday sugar coma to a slew of awesome advice 😃

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate all the advice and mockups. I'm gonna implement these changes and I think it'll be much stronger for it. Who knew that graphic design would be a skill set all on its own? 😆



  • @Braden-Hallett Happy Birthday 🎂
