If that's the whole logo, that's way too complex. The acorn is too tiny, the details are too fine. You have to adjust the scale of elements so that you don't have to peer to see everything.
This is more like an illustration than a logo. If you look at it like an ad on a full page, it makes sense. But when I look at it from thumbnail, I see huge hands, then a small plant, and only if I zoom in I can notice that there's a tiny acorn there, and the plant is in fact a small tree.

sorry but why on earth make it black? yeah it "stands out" but in a bad way. just inverting the colors looks way better to me.
also, to be honest I didn't immediately get the drawing on the left is the same plane as on the right. maybe put them on the right page together, to show sequence and communicate what you do? the right page is virtually empty anyway.
also, your contacts are shoved at the very bottom like an unimportant information. IMO they should be made bigger and easier to find.

also, regarding the whole format. right now, and all the sections seem randomly placed. this is quite tiresome to navigate and you could even miss some information. I suggest aligning them to something more traditional, this way it will be much easier to navigate. I also think sticking with a constant format would make things easier to read and less messy. right now, you place the text in bottom/left/right position to the section title, and it's disorienting and needlessly informal."

here's what I'd do (excuse the poor crop, green lines for reference). put the thumb right at the center, basically. ideally, I'd make everything align to something, and leave a margin at the right where the stripes meet the edge.
otherwise, with such a small composition, you have to think harder at every detail. first off, what is depicted here even? the meaning feels vague, other than "I pick tropical vibes". why the hand is blue? does it express anything? hardly so. second, these stripes feel more decorative than anything, so they weaken focus and thus the impact of the cover. third, the realistic pattern is clashing with the "flat" and geometric feel of the cover."

I'll keep that in mind.

The one on the right is a remake of the one on the left. I wanted the feedback before I put all the text on it.

OK so the layout looks better. But overall it still needs work IMO.
I was meaning to ask before, why is the folder so huge compared to the hand? I didn't even get what it was supposed to be from the first cover, I mean. It's not a manila 'envelope' but a folder. These 45º degree tabs look GIGANTIC, and why are they stacked? And putting the folder on a side is even more confusing. They're commonly depicted with tab facing top. All this makes the meaning easily go over someone's head.
The second one however works pretty well because there's no tiny hand (which served vague purpose anyway). It's a simple and powerful juxtaposition. However, again, I'd make the folder more recognizable. And stylistically, make things consistent. I mean, if you reduce the folder to just 1 geometric shape, do the same with the ocean. If you go with something realistic, do the same with folders."

Thank you for your feedback, it means a lot. I get what you are saying now about the stylization being consistent throughout the cover.

no problem. your work looks interesting. I suggest you read some books from the sticky.

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==344567 && dateTime=="06/20/18(Wed)16:42:51")

it's not just style though, it's important to learn everything they want from you beforehand because no one is a mindreader. ask questions—what exactly they want to achieve, what's the auditory, do they want the work to be serious or less formal, and so on. you can also ask them to show something similar that they have in mind—what they count as good design, something they want to look like, or what they had before. so, narrow it down as much as possible.
then if you present them your work and they don't like something, you can return to the initial conversation and explain how you did exactly what they asked for. this way you also prevent the situation in which they will ask for a million changes and try to design your work for you."

obviously you should ask at least once. after that it depends, but given your previous history I'd ask every time just in case.
first, make clear who in particular will approve your work and have the final say on it. try to reach out to them directly. ask about the target auditory—who are they, what matters to them, what's their relation with the uni/club. also, learn about the club itself and what image they want to project, like what words do they want people to associate with it (like 'modern', 'traditional', 'friendly' etc). wouldn't harm to ask if you have to follow any identity guidelines (if they have those). and I'd revisit the issues they had with your previous work—try to understand the underlying reasons exactly they wanted something changed.
if they don't define the particular message for some post, then you'll need more answers. try to understand the underlying goal of the post—not just literal message but who it will be directed towards and so on."

the idea of juxtaposing grid with greek statue in space is ok but very shittily executed. the grid overlay is visibly crappy and barely follows the shape of the face, obstructing and clashing with it. the scale of detail in general is completely fucked, the grid is way too thin and fine for a pattern going through the whole cover. the text is too tiny and the font is shit. the sides look empty. neon text and outline look like GIMP. there's an awkward feel of dissonance to it—the back is a photo, the head is a photo but the grid is solid color line. all in all it has a "going nowhere in particular" feel"

do you have a set direction or not? your typography is very basic and boring, it's literally just text set to left/right/whatever. despite you say otherwise, your work is literally like Swiss typographic poster except with no hierarchy and no real computation/grid put in it. so in other words: it's just text.
you put a "wallpaper" in there and think it's enough to make things more interesting, and in the meantime you badly break a few rules which I don't think you know how to observe. such as, "don't just put text on image randomly, and care about contrast/visibility". in result you just half-ass the rule.
having a white box around text work at least. this could work but if you work on the background

that's silly, work doesn't get better with more obvious technical achievements. and there's too much talk about typography in general, i have 7 typefaces i stick to. i do use the grid though (but not muller brockmann's there are a lot of mistakes in that book).

typography is not just "picking fonts". it's about hierarchy, legibility, composition of text, and many other things. of course you can avoid it but learning it will make your work look more professional.
>but not muller brockmann's there are a lot of mistakes in that book).
I'm sorry but you sound like someone who didn't read any textbooks on design, and generally doesn't care about the theory behind it. design doesn't end with Paul Rand, and it isn't just "intuitive" stuff and "shooting from the hip", so good luck with that rockstar attitude.

well that was more of a sidenote. actually there's been no great revolution in typography in the sense of more beauty or great readability in the last lets say 75 years. you really have to introduce words as imagery otherwise it doesn't mean enough, it's too familiar.
>of course you can avoid it but learning it will make your work look more professional.

The blurred background image makes it hard to read, and seems like a small image blown up too much. Perhaps zooming out to show multiple balconies could have worked.

paul rand is overrated desu.

that said, he is still a very good designer. what paul rand was in addition to being a very good designer, was an at least passable artist. that is what his work was about. he did not adhere to strict to hierarchies because he approached it as one would approach a painting. and there is a way and mindset to approach a painting that one can only get from painting alot. do you paint alot? because if not then trying to copy rands methodology wont get you anywhere but mediocrity. the grid isn't a containing rule. its a helpful guideline. da vinci used grids in his paintings as did basically all renaissance painters. there is a math to this shit that is inescapable. artistic intuition is just what happens when this methodology is ingrained inside your brain, it isnt ignoring the rules altogether"

yeah i do paint. that's my vocation, i do a bit of graphic design for a living. BUT, i think you're wrong about that. do you suppose he told all his students at yale, oh i can't teach you anything unless you're painters? you mean he thought it was no different from painting (or sculpture or printmaking, et al). and the point of the grid is to not come out of it. there's no reason to. it gives you order & lots of variety.

art historians of the time thought rembrandt hadn't grasped 'our rules of art, such as anatomy and the proportions of the human body' because he wasn't interested in refinment in the italian manner.
shakespeare didn't follow the rules of drama (the aristotlean unities), if he even knew them. he cared little or nothing for rules, just as every great genius in every great art has cared little or nothing for rules. picasso said beginning with van gogh we are all, in a measure, autodidacts and no criterion can be applied to an artist a priori, since we don't believe in rigid standards any longer. not that i'm comparing myself (or paul rand) to picasso/rembrandt/michengelo/shakespeare but you see what i mean"

I guess if you're a die-hard sci-fi movie fan, who remembers a ton of quotes and stuff like that, then maybe going so abstract is okay. but otherwise, not so much.

Not too bad, still a bit rough imo, but if that's the style you are shooting for it's alright. Hands looks like arse though, it doesn't represent collaboration at all, rather looks like they are fighting eachother for something.

how long have you been making that? I think for 2 weeks, right? have you read Logo Design Love ? have you done any brainstorming/mindmapping? have you searched Google for "cleaning company logo"?
all in all I see you toying around with letter shapes and that's it. it's pretty ineffective IMO. maybe try communicating the 'cleaning' part better. for example with a swoosh or something like that. if it's "eco-friendly", then add the leaves."

If you are taking this fucking long to figure out a simple logo I can tell you aren't even making enough from gd to pay your rent lol. And you are right I don't do gd for a living, I'm a cobol programmer and you'd probably pass out if you knew what that meant for my paycheck.

I did work for 4 years as a webdesigner/dev/gd though, and not freelance like you are probably fucking around with. What are your credentials, aside from the shit logos you've posted so far?

Not sure about halftone outline versus solid letter on “UP”.
At first I was confused seeing weird “dents” on shapes. Then I realized these weren't dents but white outline on white BG.
Can you show a version without any outlines/shadows on “JUST” and “UP”? I think you went a bit too far with them.
Also, you have vintage kind of lettering here, then this wild gesture kind, then again vintage but with a halftone. This is 3 different styles, and it's a pretty bad mess."

Everything you do looks amateur as fuck and it reeks of someone who doesn't sketch on paper first. Unimaginative use of shapes and colors, and you keep forcing it into a deformed "G" and leaf.
