Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

What do you think?

 

This is my PREVIOUS design.

 

After I took 《 My 101》course and realized that contrasts create visual interest.

Take a look at the simple color wheel, note the colors that are opposite one another:

A color wheel shows how colors relate to one another.

 

Red and green together and blue and orange together create a kind of optical illusion.

 

                So, I used this principle of color contrast to combine different colors and created
                                                                    a NEW LOGO.

what do you think?

Better or not?

**************************************************

After receiving the advices from my instructor, I edited the image again.

 

Wow, it made my new LOGO looks quite different !

I like it very much, and you?

Joanna, you are a such knowledgeable teacher !!!

 

   Thanks Joanne! You are my favorite instructor in 《 My 101》.

 And you are right, FD.  Font: Bold  really makes the text stand out. Thanks lot!

    Hello YN. I am glad you learned a lot from the class. I do think your new design is improved. I do like the color of the characters against the green leaf. Here two suggestions. Rotate the type on the green leaf so that it is the same angle as the mid-vien of the leaf and keep it on the darker side of the leaf for even more contrast. The text in the lower right is a little difficult to read. Try moving it below the main image or experiment with it on a curve inside the blue circle. GOOD JOB! Your Instructor

    I am surprised to have your reply so quickly.
    Those two suggestions are very good.
    For some reason I am not able to edit the green leaf ( they are not layered ), but I followed your instruction to edit the text part, I did it with a curve inside the blue circle. it is my first time to try using the warp text, then it turned out so nice! Then I adjusted color  and made the image more darker…
    What do you think now?
    Thank you very very much, Joanne!

    This new design appears to me very much.
     
    #1 Colors stand out really well.
     
    #2 Dropping of the lotus photograph in the background leaves only abstract objects in the artwork.  Cleaner look.  Less distractive.
     
    Good work YN =)

    Hmm.  You may consider using the Bold version of that font, to make the 你就是你 stand out.  Also, is it
     
    你,就是你!
     
    or
     
    你。。。就是你。
     
    or
     
    你就是你

    Hello YN,I really like the curved text. Not only does it use the color contrast but used repetition of the shapes. EXCELLENT !
