Ok, Thanks guys for the constructive criticism, I will upload new improved attempts on this thread when I get the time. I would still like some more opinions please so keep then coming.
I understand where all of you are coming from, would you be able to show some new concepts or ideas I could work from if you have some spare time please, don't worry if not, I am just very busy with school work and exams. You could obviously watermark them if you wish. I would just like some examples please. I would never copy them exactly because I want to improve my skills too!
It all depends on what message you want to put across through your typeface really. For instance, a bold sans-serif font might imply strength and reliability (good for something like a construction company logo), whereas a slimmer serif font could suggest sophistication and extravagance (good for restaurant menus or wedding invitations).
Have a think about the message you want to put across, then if you're short on fonts head over to a font website (dafont.com has plenty for free) and you can type your name in and see it displayed in a myriad of different styles.
Try a few things out. But I'd advise against mixing serif with sans-serif, or square with rounded.
