Well, I can't really help out as I'm designing logos (traditionally, no computing involved) for a local community. However, I can give you some pointers on logo design:
  • Have a basic idea for what your employer is looking for. Just thinking up an idea and throwing it their way is NOT the way business works. (Unless your employer specifically asks for this - however, it's common curtosy to ask "what they're looking for" before attempting anything.)
  • Keeping your employer's ideas in mind, draw up several ideas pertaining to the criteria at hand.
  • Keep in contact constantly with your employer. Never, EVER finish a piece without first reviewing it with your employer - this will save you a lot of headaches in the long run.
  • Make sure to not "over complicate" things too much. A simple yet effective logo goes a longer way than a complex and convoluted one. Basically, try not to make it too "busy".
  • Obey deadlones. This is essential.
  • If you're drawing the logos in the traditional sense (instead of on a computer), try to use vibrant colours. Paints, markers, pastels, anything BUT pencil crayons. (Yeah, we all make mistakes. *sigh*)

That's all that I can think of now. I hope I was of some help!
