Explore Differentiate, Suppose and more!

I suppose that works to differentiate the phrases but there's gotta be a better way than using all those typefaces.

Strong by Sunnydesign — “Bold colors make for strong product differentiation, and one colour printing helps to keep costs low." Not just bold colors, but primary colors, suggesting the products' basic nature.

((Unsuccessful)) •Concept and Theme: >There really isn't a theme or concept. Company just posted a big picture of their shop in the background. •Typography: >Type is in Serif. Looks like Times New Roman. The logo looks hand-rendered--but horrible due to a flashing gif of a flame behind(making it hard to make out the name of the tattoo shop). •Layout: >Black bar layout-tabs are located on it to take you to certain topics. However at the bottom is a chunky gray bar with icons? Ugly…

The designer tried to differentiate words by type style and it didn't work so well. It all looked like one giant word to me and probably did to most other people who attempted to read this sign as well.

((Unsuccessful)) •Concept or theme: >Not really a theme. Confused because logo has a cactus and not a sagebrush ?? So is it a desert theme? Company is located in San Marcos & Austin and location is no where near an arid dessert. •Typography: >The type is Sans serif, however, does not successfully attract viewers. Within the logo "sagebrush" is bold and below "landscaping" is in cursive. Not consistent in font choice. Several cursive font and San serif.One cannot fully see what it says until…

Bad Design. Though the concept of free spirit and easy going company is clear, this site is very busy with too many text and graphics which make it hard for the customer to understand. All the info is placed too close to each other which makes it hard to differentiate some sort of hierarchy. Too many vibrant colors used. Poor use of positive and negative space. Navigation structure is not organized and clear.
