I like the size it is, i would find it a bit more appealing if the highlights on the car weren't so scattered.

yeah, i had a real hard time with the car - cars arent my thing, but the design needed it to give it a sense of period and ballance.

If we wear one, are we advertising our own absent-mindedness?? LOL! Love this!

concept... x
redesign... doesn't need to say Motel.. or if it does... name the Motel some kinda pun on "brain" or "mind"
ALSO - please people.,
stop establishing the background with unrelated circles and ovals...
RULE OF DESIGN...
no ovals or circles... unless you have 2 or 3 GOOD argueable solid reasons for them to be there...
p.s.
no logos in ovals either... UG

TYP

make it biiigger.. and its mighty fine ^_^
i think the unrelated ovals should be allowed on this occasion..

thanks for the feedback, but i defend my ovals. i see no fault in grounding a design on a larger canvas by using basic shapes. infact, i recall shape and line being two of the basic elements of design. and if you really must have a justification for every element of the design, then here are two: 1) research of 1950s pop culture advertising will show many successful and notably period designs with the same simple-shape technique, and 2)when addressing the readability of a design, i have found the KISS rule a tried and true standard - "keep it simple stupid". but thank you, and i look forward to seeing your designs, hoefully in the near future.

any element of design needs to be used for a reason.
it may be true that 50s pop culture utilized simple forms in construction and in graphic design, and yes they were successful. But why were they successful for that period?
The answer to that question will reveal the reasoning behind the design of 50s American pop culture... But it will not provide reasons for this T-shirt design made in 200(6?).

its hard to see your own design from a distance... just so you know.. the first thing i saw (apart from the subconscious vision of the design as a whole) ... was the word "MOTEL"

it looks like a 1950s logo/design. The ovals work.
