my first watermark...
hey all, basically i recently was given permission to add my watermark along with the club that i shoot at to all the photos that go up on their facebook however it occurred to me that i didn't have a decent logo or anything yet :S Anyhoo long story short in a slightly drunken state (post work fun with my mates) i had this idea for a logo/watermark. it is my first attempt at it and im not quite happy with it yet however id like to know what all you professionals think.. is it a bit cheap n cheesy? or is it appropriate and fun considering currently i'm predominantly a nightclub photographer?
looking for any critique on on the current one and or suggestions for something different
here it is

It looks good full size like that, but I would be concerned once you shrink it down and put it on an image. It might not look nearly as good when 1/10 the size and you may want to go with something simpler that is clearer when reduced down in size.

Yeah I don't like it :P Actually for ages I thought it was a hand holding a gun and another inverted :P
Check out some of these;
Check out some other nighclub photo logos, like IAMVIP etc

I've put this advise out several times here at DPS. Hire a pro. I can tell you've put a little time in this and I don't want to come of as mean, but this is very amateurish. Now maybe you don't think that's a big deal and that's fine, but everyone who looks at your logo will conclude that you are an amateur. Along with that conclusion, they will make assumptions. First whether you are any good or not, they will assume that you can't be that good. Second they will assume that you must be very inexpensive.
I can't stress how important a good logo and good branding is to the success of a company, and honestly logos are as inexpensive as they've ever been.
Personally, I'd spend $200 - $1000 now, so that I have the best shot at making thousands and thousands later with my photography.
Best of luck!

A watermark like this will be EXTREMELY distracting. If you use one at all (which I suggest against), make it is unintrusive as possible.
