Resurgence of the Self-Possessed

Alright, children. Sit down and be quiet. Pay attention to my art and give it the respect it deserves. Everyone critique my pieces, and do a great job at it. Do it NOW.

What is this, idle chatter? Are you making jokes over there Timmy? It's detention for you. I could have went to any graphic design forum on the internet for useless 10 cent opinions. But I went here. This site is supposed to be a SERIOUS OFFICIAL CRITIQUE SERVICE. I don't know where it says that anywhere, maybe I imagined it. Either way, shape up and critique harder.

Look upon my masterpiece. It took me 17 hours to make it. My company is called "McDonalds". It reminds you of another famous logo and also has a very familiar name? That kind of spurious chatter isn't helping me at all, quiet down. I need brand research, trend data, and a thousand word essay on market capitalization. I need those pronto. Oh and do it for free. That's what this site is here for, right?

Fine I'm leaving forever, bye.

I'll just take a wild guess that given that guys logo is now missing that's what this is about. Shame I didn't read the comments, what happened to him?

90% of the above is direct actual quote or paraphrased closely from memory before it was deleted.

Shame it was deleted, sounds funny lol. I don't understand people. It doesn't matter if you made the logo in 5 minutes or over 5 days, if the logo sucks, it sucks. No amount of time or effort put into a bad concept will massage it into something better.

Sheesh, I miss all the good stuff... guess that's what I get for getting caught up with actual work for an entire day. lol.

From success to failure is one step. From failure to success is a long road.

Was he that bad? I refrained on commenting on his logo because just looking at it was enough to send me into a boner-inducing rage. Seriously, you're gonna spend 2 minutes on designing your logo, expect me to spend that much time critiquing the piece of shit.

I believe he said he spent hours designing it and days thinking about it, lol.

it actually wasnt THAT bad. nowhere near the whywaitwebs or printdesignerca guys.

it was just kind of odd. he had that one dual-cone thing (which i believe Liorah pointed out looked like harvey weinstein's mark) and than that reve "branding" thing.

i asked him if "his" branding company was this one:
http://www.revegroup.com/
he said no. it was another company. then a few of us mentioned it might not be wise for a BRANDING company to name itself the EXACT same name as another company with a VERY similar service offering - even iF one operates primarily in a different country

he told us that he wasnt interested in that kind of advice. then a day or two later, when he still wasnt getting what he wanted, pulled both his posts.

now i may have missed a rant or two just before he axed them... so if there was more drama. i sadly missed it : (

No, his work wasn't terrible. The whole reason I made that post was for two of his quotes I found totally hilarious (that got deleted before people saw it):

"I could go anywhere on the internet for 10 cent opinions. You guys call yourselves a professional critique service and need to live up to it"

"I don't need your side chatter about naming the company or how the logo will print. Nobody here is even doing any market research or branding trends."

i remember that "side chatter" thing. he must have added that market research bit in an edit.

thats AWESOME!
