Default Logo Improvements?


Just wondering what others thoughts are on my logo? And what improvements I could make. I know it's not very good but this is my first try as I am a beginner

Thanks

Imo people always confuse a logo and a banner. A logo is a simple graphic that should consist out of 2 - 3 different colors and it's main use is to establish a brand so people will recognize your business wether they read the name or not.

A banner is a lot more complicated and can use way more colors and effects on it. The main use of a banner is to sit on top of your website and let visitors know who you are and what you're all about.

If it's a logo then you already did a great job sticking with 3 colors and simple images. However i would look into just taking one off the little images and focus on that one. Next try to look for a matching font that goes well with the overall theme of your website. You can try to look at dafont: http://www.dafont.com/

Good luck!

The logo is not that bad, I think you should remove the kangeroo.

Hehe, gotta love it when someone comes in asking for a logo and runs of with a header image Seems it was a header image you were after at the end of the day. Ah well. For future reference a logo is a simple graphic were you try to keep the amount of colors/colours to a minimum and simplicity is key. Look at the logo's of many major companies and you will see what i mean:

Shell: http://images.wikia.com/lego/images/8/80/Shell_logo.jpg
Coca Cola: http://www.logostage.com/logos/coca-cola.jpg
Pepsi: http://www.findthatlogo.com/wp-conte...pepsi-logo.jpg
