IST Assignment Logo/Poster Work

Hey guys
basically I've come here for some help. We've just received an ist assignment that is crucial for my yearly scaling it's around 40-50% so you can understand how much it means....

Anyways the assignment requires me to design a logo in a hypothetical situation for a company that exists.

In this case i am making a logo for a company that specialises in renewable energy. I have thought of doing a kind of flower thing but i am completely lost and it doesn't really help when the Logo must be done in Adobe illustrator and the poster in Photoshop.

I will be honest I'm a real newbie at these graphic designing programs so i was wondering if you guys would help steer me in the right path. I have made some designs but man is it so hard to be unique and i MUST make the
images and anything with the logo myself..

The typography in those two isn't great, and I guess I feel it suffers from a lack of direction. I think the logo is supposed to be a flower? But it's kinda esoteric - and not in a good way.

I'd check out some good examples of design to see what other people are doing, and set yourself a benchmark from there.

The flower was just an idea but it doesn't really suit my assignment's guidelines. We were told for a simple professional logo not that that helps me...

It means exactly that =P
Something simple, but professional.

So it doesn't have to be some ridiculous masterpiece, but it should be professional.

It's not a course it's a subject for school Newington College and for some parts of the project i use illustrator and photoshop but i have to follow the guidelines for different parts like for the poster i have to design it as if it was going to be advertised on a mentropolitan bus.

Well, look at what they put on busses, and think about something like that.

Has to have a big visible logo, nice simply typography, and maybe a smaller line of text.

Like, for my business I'd have something like this except with less ascii art, and more nice image and nice text:
|--------------------------------| 
| %%%%%%% FLOW |
| %%%%%%% Creative Development |
| %%%%%%% |
|--------------------------------|


Look at what other people do, and then set yourself a benchmark and work towards it.

This is my most recent work as i am still trying to grasp the millions of different tools and effects within adobe illustrator. Cheers Brenton

I had to recode it to RGB for the Web :) Otherwise it looked overdone with inner glow.....

Looks okay.
I dislike the typography =P

The most recent logo I've worked on was my own.
I didn't do this one, but it's ended up being the one we're using. It's not perfect, and not finialised, but anyway.

As you can see, it's a lot more basic than what you have to do, but you can kind of see how it all works together.

If you can try and anchor the type to the image it might work better. Perhaps experiment with some fonts you haven't tried before, in positions you haven't looked at.

It's certainly looking better than your original ideas though :)

Q: Have you considered using a wave as the logo? Like a literal take on the word "wave" and colouring it green?

I was considering using a wave but after the idea seemed somewhat hard to achieve and yeh i just really haven't found the way to achieve it.. I have to find a suitable font hmm time to scan highfonts.com By typography you are referring to the font and the text correct?

Cheers Brenton

The second one is fairly decent.
Basically the text, and how it appears and is arranged upon the graphic.

I wanna make the flower look more like this one featured in the tutorial but i can't duplicate the same pen effects as they have done so in there's.

http://www.estetica-design-forum.com/graphic-design-tutorials/698-adobe-illustrator-tutorial-maki

I would change the colours and the path's so it wouldn't look like a complete rip off on my behalf any suggestions?

Don't duplicate it?

Well I've looked for the wave effect tutorial's and i found one that seemed suitable. But to my dismay it looks too much like a splash effect and seems to only work with the Verdana Font.
