  1. Was off for a bit, but I did some more testing today. I looked at some websites to see what other photographers are doing. http://larsschneider-landscapes.com/ https://karimphotography.com/ https://www.instagram.com/sarashierphotography/ http://www.itsworthashot.com/ Some people have logos and no signature. Some have a different watermark than their logo. It's kind of different for everyone. Since everyone is doing a lot of different thing, I think it's good to assume that my first idea of logo for website/favicon and a signature for watermark (with the font I buy first and in a couple of years with photologo) was good enough. Here are the testing with and without background of the best I created. I was testing to make a darker (#2) logo by copy/paste a layer. After that I was trying some stuffs with name and logo and finally I tested the opacity (last one). I think I will keep one of the logo because I really love the kind of lens and the N going outside. I also think of just taking one of the signature for watermark which I think both look nice with Photography under or on the right side.
  2. Some tests I did test in black and white and it's possible.
  3. Thank you for all your replies. First of all, I decided to keep a colored version for my website header and favicon as well as a black version and white version for watermark and other supports. Secondly, taking my own signature wouldn't be that great, because yes I have good writing skills for texts, but my signature is another story lol. Tomorrow evening I will show you some preview of WIP logo with some of your ideas.
  4. Thank you. Yeah, Photography should be lot more smaller than the name. Good example from photologo I was thinking about something similar, but it's why I was asking for help. Should I have a logo like the blue above with a signature like that inside (I could remove the circle on picture watermark), but It will not be very lisible on a smaller scale like favicon. Or I should have one signature like that as watermark and a logo like above with something else inside. Or again, just a logo like above without signature at all for everything?
  5. Thank you for your feedback. I'm more about landscape, city, travel photography. I also like nature like forest and ocean and I think it works well with this logo. Like I said, I'm not too sure what I want inside… if I want my full name, just a N or a ND. Also I know this font is ugly, I just didn't download/buy the other fonts I want to test. I also want something timeless that will still look great in 10 years.
  6. Hi, I wrote that on Reddit, but got no answer, so I thought about writing that here since there are people working in the industry or know some design stuffs. I'm currently lost about how my personal logo should look like. I'm currently making my website where I will show some photographies and other works. I read in a lot of website that for photography watermark, it's preferable to use a signature logo created by photologo (the only company I know). I'm thinking to buy for one, but I'm not too sure a signature could fit as a website logo, a favicon or even a business card logo. Now here's the big problem I have. Should I get two different logos? One great signature for my photographies and one original logo as my own personal branding? Or I can just make one original logo that I will use anywhere even if for a watermark it looks less professional? Another thing is that I found some awesome script fonts; https://creativemarket.com/SamParrett/351104-Imogen-Agnes https://tomchalky.com/magnite-handwritten-brush-script-font/ Between professional hand made signature vs a font, it's complicated to choose for a watermark signature. I don't want to spend money for nothing. Furthermore, I found this https://www.etsy.com/ca-fr/listing/487613164/cercle-de-logo-logo-initiales-creation?ref=shop_home_active_18 Great logo design for a website, favicon and business card and even as a small watermark on pictures. But it's expensive (and I can make my own based on that design) and like always, I'm also thinking photography… Also, do you know which font she uses in the circle? I don't have etsy account to write to her myself unfortunately. Do you have ideas or suggestions? Is it correct to use two different things or I should use only one kind of logo/signature? EDIT: I created two logos based on what I liked from the paint one I discussed here and the one with circle (link above). 1. Paint effect showing a camera lens. I really love how it cames up. Now the font is not final, but it's just an example to show you that I want a mix script letter and sans-serif. I'm not too sure if I should center a bit more the text inside the circle or not. If I do that, I will need to move the open space and everything will look too straight… right? Should I keep the logo like that? Is it not missing something in the white space above my name? Should I move "PHOTOGRPAHY" to the left of my name or keep it right? Also think it could be a good way to introduce a photologo inside this circle. But as a favicon or website logo, should I just keep initial inside the circle? I'm scare of how it could show up on favicon... 2. A bit of a copy of the link above… Trying to figure what font or what to put in the middle. Personally, I think I prefer the first one.
  7. Hi, I found this on Etsy while looking for inspiration for a logo I will create for myself. https://www.etsy.com/shop/PearlAndPixel I would like to know if you have an idea how the circle was made. I really love the paint effect and the colors blending perfectly together without using a gradient. Thank you
  8. Hi, When changing stroke size or shape, what's the "texture line style"? I clicked on it and nothing happened. Maybe I didn't understand how it works? Thank you
  9. I think it's a bit complicated since you still have to click on each slide to export them separately. Would like to see the options in the dialogue box saying what we want to export: - Whole document - Layer 1 - Layer 2 - Layer 3 - etc.
  10. I'm waiting for this as well. I did some shapes and give them an angle, but after grouping them, there is no way to actually reset the box to remove the angle it did.

    web design mockup

    Another change lol. I found a great WordPress template on the internet, but since WordPress template always look good until you mess with them, I just took some ideas from it and design something else for my website. Since buttons already make you go to another page, should I remove the navigation bar from the Home Page and only make a fullscreen image? Only keeping navigation bar on other pages but Home? Or I can just have one button to Portfolio and the other one goes in the menu? Not sure where to put the logo/name on this final one. Here is the template I found http://wp.themedemo.co/napoli/

    web design mockup

    I'm not sure anymore about the way I show the blog section on the desktop version. I think it would be better to have a full frame picture for the portfolio (with works and photo albums), but I think it's weird to have the blog section as big as the about and contact section. What do you think? Maybe the previous idea with a big portfolio and medium blog was better? Just wasn't sure about how much vertical it was for the blog part. EDIT: What do you think about something like that? I want to see a bigger image for portfolio which can change easily or having a possible looping video here. I decided to reduce About and Contact section to a simple button. What do you think? Not sure about button color. Should it be darker? Black with white text? Smaller text?

    web design mockup

    Hi, Following my other topic about my logo here, I decided to make a mockup for my future website. Bellow are all steps that I did to have the final idea of my website. My website will be more about some travel blog and photography, but also other works I'm happy to share. I first started with the idea of making a single-page website, but I wasn't happy with the design since it was a bit hard to integrate all the section I wanted seamlessly. Everything had a different design and wasn't happy with that. After that, I tried to go with the same kind of idea, but separating the different section in block like a menu. The problem is that I though the full screen image was a bit useless since there was already images bellow. So I decided to remove that and only keep the essential. Wasn't happy either, because I was taking too much space and wasn't really mobile friendly after all. It was just too long to scroll into different section. I bring back my idea of full screen image and was thinking of a button showing a menu. Was a nice idea since when hovered, you was able to see another image. After that, I thought that maybe all this was a bit useless and was making navigation a bit more harder for everyone. Finally, I took this "menu" idea and just decided to make it in one beautiful page. So that is my final homepage! What do you think? Do you think I should move the copyright and social icon near the page border a bit more? Was thinking about that, because the actual logo and menu are closer to border.
