    A customer wants a 10 foot wide sign for their craft show booth.

    This will be a digital print mounted on white acrylic.

    Their name is "BowTie Banners & More". Their only request was to have the word "PARTY", and use some pink in the design.

    The scalloped circles represent an element of one of their primary products.

    Critiques would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Stick with Pink, Black & White and drop the green.
    Pink and Green don't really go together to good.

    I would google bowtie logo image search and get some inspiration.

    also need to change the order of green/white on the black bowtie, the green needs to be the border and white for the wording.
    That is if this design is kept.

    Start over. Not saying that to be a smartass or anything but try going at it from a completely different direction. It looks like you tried too hard to force the bow tie graphic into it and it's just not working.

    Also, if you're going to use that script for "More" kern it so the overlaps work.

    The PARTY part in the flowery things isn't working at all and makes no sense with the rest of it.

    This is just a thought. Got it stuck in my head while finishing stuff up for the day and wanted to see it so here it is. I'm a big fan of bold, solid colors and few effects.

    @ 2B...Actually pink and green do go together quite "well", they are complimentary colors. Though normally a toned down green (pale) is more pleasing to the eye.

    I think if you cut the black of the bow tie from behind the letters they would stand out. green and black are too close to be put against each other. and dont let the bow tie touch the design on the right either it can look cluttered less is more.

    Delete all of those fonts from your computer.
    If you must use Brush Script, for the love of God, please weld it.
    I dislike seeing a photo-ey image with vector-ey lettering.
    Contrast is really poor.
    As always, Whatley's layouts make more sense.
    Love....jill
