    Hey Guys,

    I have done a custom made logo for my friend, She wanted her First letter of her Name and Surname. Which is S T. I wanted to do something different big and bold

    So....I sat down on my laptop and started messing about with shapes. I got a line and curved them from each end and joined the same shape and make it into the letters. Then the layout was done, finally it was Effects time, I used a Silver Snake skin and a megenta colour then..... THERE WAS MY MASTER PEICE.

    Please do comment.... Thanks

    It appears to be very well done but doesn't make me think of weddings at all. It reminds me of the straps on sexy high heeled shoes.

    Without the icky snake skin it has potential.
    But who uses snake skins at a wedding? Maybe during a voodoo ritual.
    If you must do an effect (I wouldn't) I'd go for shiny satin or even a bit of lace.
    Just because you can add an effect or a texture doesn't mean you should.
    I would go for more of a brush or calligraphy stroke looking shape.
    Good thing her initials aren't STD.
    :)
    Love....Jill

    Agrees with Jill 100% snakes and weddings ? even if your friend likes snakes, her customers would have to also.

    I do like the shape you created with the S ...the T not sure

    What I suggest is not be satisfied yet. Try the S as one color of lace and the T as a another but I'd also work on the T more it seems it needs to flow better with the S

    For inspiration look at some monograms of letters and also wedding services.

    I was thinking of the Young and Restless soap opera logo.
    Here's a quick suggestion, I am not a huge fan of gradients but just to demonstrate.
    Maybe metallic like a wedding ring and silky like a bride's knickers.

    "silky like a bride's knickers."

    Jill, you have a way with words.

    After seeing that logo I couldn't tell you what the business name is. That's rather a problem.

    In terms of UK wording,... its a bit chav mate. Kind of Essex girl bling. It looks cool but in terms of useability I think you need to tone it down a bit. Go with some softer, pastel like colours. I was in photography for some years and subtle is more successful than brash and bold.

    Though at the end of the day, if your client likes it.
