both because you can not use photoshop filters or effects to design a logo. Because they are bitmap based and not vectors. Logo need to be resizeable without loosing details or getting pixelated. Vectors can be resized without loosing details.
2nd design i can see several layers effect, bevel/embossing , glowing edge, drop down shadow.
If you want to make a logo you need to learn a vector based program like Illustrator.

No one ever commented on my designs?

i spent a half hour the other day trying to find the cartoon character that looks like the new wacom logo, i couldn't find it. i thought it was in Labrynth, but didnt see it, maybe it is from fraggle rock or seasme street. It is a red fuzzy thing with horns for ears. Anyone know?
Check that for them, i can only find the plush dolls for a image.

Here is the 2nd revision. Thanx again for the feedback.

@ ePad Studio - The illustrations are too much in design #1. 2nd design and 3rd are more about a robot where you draw things on the belly. Both that got nothing to do with Wacom. The man, pen and talblet looks too much like icons/clip art. Also the font could be improve with a much more straight and smooth font like the original wacom design and also more color could be used.
@ steve -
The dancing IZ toy think resembles it allot.
or this bouncy toy for dogs.

Redesign Of First Version
Thanks for the feedback..
As suggested by Chung Dha, I have removed the photoshop effects and introduced a designer font to give it a more designer kind of look...
I was not sure whether to use a thick pen line or a thin one or not use it at all...so I am attaching all attempts here..plz do give feedback which one is better..
Please keep attachments from stretching the forum layout. Resized by _Redrum.

went with a more earthy look to it -
feedback would be much appreciated

here, my attempt.I think wacom don't need symbol as logo. i try here to design only with logotype in custom typeface, with 2 solid color,easy to applied. Easy to identified in dark and small area.in "O" letter i customize so it feel "digitized", also if you see more clearly, there is "cross mark" in white area, as a cross in coordinat.Feedback appreciated.thanks

my 2nd attemp.

@ Itwin - your logo looks too much like a supermarkt logo but inverted shapes.
@andrendhiq - is not but I think more graphics logo should fit more with Wacom not only textual. Both don't really have a element that got to do with tablets. 1rst design I see a + inside the red thingy that could cause a problem or more fitter with a health company.
@dinu25 - There is not such things as designer font. And the new font is not that real great. If you look everything is not on the same line and your still using photoshop while you should be working with illustrator or an other vector based program. The colors should be more bright and green is not a great color to represent designers. Green is more health , advocate more serious business.

hah - never heard of a Plus supermarket. Guess i'll come up with new design. ( maybe they'll like the inverted symbols)

My second attempt.
Here is my second attempt at this wacom contest.
I decided to do examples of possible variations of the logo.
each box is a different version of the same logo.
one on black. one in color regular, as I intended in the first place, and the other a black and white and gray version.
Feedback and critiques welcomed....

I would toy with it a bit, try different orientation of the shapes, appropriate some of the ideas you've seen posted thus far.

I think your designs are a little bulky.

but then.. maybe you should just try a whole new approach.

thank you for the suggestion -
revised it a little bit.
12-28-2007, 03:51 AM
@Itwin- you should look at other colors. Because the tablets are mostly used by designers and should be more bright. And step away from making flowers and think more about designers,art,tablets or tablet pens.
12-28-2007, 09:41 AM
i feel like using the tablet or a pen in the logo would be over using it when applying that logo on the tablet, or pen
12-28-2007, 10:42 AM
There are plenty ways to show tablets or something to do with design without actually showing it. But also avoid things that got totally nothing to do with the company. You should search things for inspirations. Go thru flickr and watch photo for inspirations.
