Description: the concept here is I always was a slow learner and i know their are people with reading disabilities so this event could show or help people who are slow ( hence the turtle) read. The book pages form a turtle shell and as well as the fable association slow and steady wins the race, meaning a person with learning disabilities who is slow with alot of effort will overcome their challenges and win in life. this was made for a charity event marathon to raise money to supply books to parents with kids with learning disabilities.

Interesting concept, but the execution is lacking and is holding it back from being gallery-worthy, in my opinion.

someone put me in the gallery, so someone must think this is gallery-worthy, you can have your opinion Sam i respect you and your opinion completely, but i cannot find a flaw with this logo. If you can give a me a detailed and specific explanation on why the execution is lacking, and what needs to be added or taken away to make it good, then i will take the feedback, if not, then i cannot agree with you. Its ok i'm not forcing anybody to like my logo lol especially you.

Well, the book isn't symmetrical, for one. That's not to say that all logo marks should be symmetrical or have a consistent line weight, but they way you've done it here looks like a mistake. The vertical lines that make up the edges of the paper are thick on one side, thin on the other, etc. The tiny little book spine notches on either side of the head feel like leftover and forgotten bits. Tagline is too small and light.

Devil in the detailz, i didnt catch the line thickness will have to look at it again.the leftover bits as you call them are the legs of the turtle, what would you suggest to make them look like legs. The taglime is thin , true ill fix that

Looking back in 2009- I can only say I'm amazed how high was the level of the gallery. I bet you all know that feeling when you see your logo on the front page among the best ones. Nostalgia.

Well, for me middle pages aren't proportional to these beneath. I would try to add nails to the legs, so i would look more leggy :) I see the concept, which is very potential, but I think it needs to put some more work in it. Can't wait to see final version :)

I dont understand,, and ruferret im not as good as you guys are yet it takes years to become good at logo design, im not there yet. Talking about the old days are you saying that but do you recognize all the people who are trying we all cant be logo design geniuses overnight you know. I have no clue what high standard you guys are talking about? This will not discourage me from logo design.

Nothing but negativity here. If you think i didnt deserve the gallery then you just shouldnt have given it to me. I rather not have the gallery then have this negative crap on my logo design. Some people gave some good criticism but some peeople just here to shit all over it, and reminensece about the good old days , i understamd your geniuses it takes time no ones an instant success while i admire that you have high standards then you should 've regulated the gallery,but you didnt and now you complain on some random guys logo in the gallery because you long for the good ol days.i rather get the gallery when i truely deserve it. I thought i did not so sure now.

Tell me ruferret what god damn makes a great logo since you know all about quality and high standards for logo designs. Remember you werent as good as you are when you were just beginning in logo design just like everyone else. Its been only 2 years ive been in the logo design game and im sticking with it so get off high horse and stop putting down other people.

If logopond has a certain standard to uphold then they should teach the people who have no idea. You guys complain bit dont do anything about it. Teach these people on logopond. designers that are on the verge of becoming great would benefit if you taught them. Then logopond could once again become a high standard logo design place. The forum should be more active full of critiques and valuable advice, everyday people would be improving climbing toward their goal. You could do design challenges to test the creativity and skill of the people on here. And critique , make a course on logo design anything because right now for everybody that is struggling with this, everything is confusing sonetimes i do the design process but fail for sone reason whether its execution or concept rookies cant get these thimg right on the first time

The comment was just my impression. I didn't say anything about the logo. Sam already did it and I agree with him. It's not very polite to write in such a manner. We all do our best for the gallery.
