Greetings
I think you need to know more about "what is a logo?"
Honestly I will say (and do not be offended please) your two works are very far from the concept of "logo".
Colors, shapes, lines, idea, concept ... everything is very bad (
People pay money for what is done professionally, and not for what they can do themselves.
Raise your level. Learn and practice. View the work of experienced designers (how they do it).
Unfortunately, here on the forum, we can suggest mistakes or give an idea, but learning from scratch will not be able to help you.

It's not a spider. Doesn't have 8 legs and the legs are always connected to the same body part. Familiarize yourself with spider anatomy and then try simplifying and stylize it.

It's inconsistent. You started with hexagons and then transformed one of them into something different. Some joints have red circle in the middle and on some the circle isn't in the middle.

White outline is too thin and makes the logo illegible. Making the background in different color then the robot part could help.

As I mentioned in previous post, search the Internet. Spend time learning and practicing. Time spent in practice isn't a waste.

Best

Hello suryadi18!

Spider logo is much better than the first two logos. However, it needs some update:
1) Small details on the red area are unnecessary.
2) You can add another pair of legs and place them in a better way
3) Head is a bit weird
4) Pick simpler font for your logo

Oh my god, you keep hurting our eyes!
After all, everyone advises, first learn everything, and then try your hand at LG.
You do one stupid thing and without stopping repeat the following. In order to master the art of creating good logos, it should take years. Only with persistent study and striving for perfection, can good results be achieved.
You currently have zero result. Looking at this creativity, we can only laugh. Helping to do better here is impossible.
Excuse me for my frankness, but I have to tell the truth, you will continue to do it and wonder "why have you not accepted my work?"
If you really want to learn how to make logos, then you need to spend at least 2 years of hard work. Even then, it is far from a fact that you will have something to turn out. You will simply know the basics of design.
Communicating with many designers, I can say that many have taken 5 years to achieve success.
This is a difficult profession. She must be your hobby to be prepared for difficulties and overcome them.
At this stage, your creativity seems to be the work of a child who is having fun with a graphic program.

Hi suryadi18,

To repeat what other designers have said above: If a logo is almost good enough for LogoGround we can help to improve it to the point where it is good enough. We do this by helping you see specific mistakes. Your logos contain too many mistakes for us to be able to offer help. They must be redesigned completely.

This is meant as constructive feedback and I hope you don't take it the wrong way: LogoGround isn't for you. Not yet. You must learn the basics of logo design. Work through YouTube tutorials, study good logo designers, learn what makes a logo good. Practice and upload your logos to portfolio sites or social media to get feedback. Keep working until you start getting great feedback from other designers. When you get to that point, come back and try LogoGround again.

I think that very soon, we will see his new work with the question "Please help, where is the error?" =)))
You need to understand that the car on the square wheels, will not go.
@mk4gfx says correctly, you do not need to fix anything, it will not help. No need to try again and again upload their work on the LG, because then there will be a disappointment. Be smarter and listen to the advice of experienced professionals. First learn (this will take not two days).
Your perseverance is a wonderful quality! You must also be able to listen. While you are at the stage of "squares, circles, triangles, squiggles"
The first thing you need to understand is how the logo is used in the life of the company. It is used on the website, business card, packaging, advertising sign and so on. You need to understand what methods the image is applied to different media and eliminate all graphical errors that will prevent this.
In any logo, the details are very important (what they will be) and how they will look at different scales.
The logo should bear not only aesthetic value, but also practical.
Once again, this is a complex science and requires a lot of attention and study time (before starting the practice).

I'm not sure how to help you if you continue doing the same thing and expecting to get a different result. People posting logos here didn't started doing so yesterday. They studied, learned and became logo designers. It didn't happened overnight. It is a process where you first learn and learn and learn before you produce something that could be called a logo. Having the tools to do something doesn't make you a master. As we all said to you earlier you need to learn and educate yourself on the subject. There is no shortcuts. I hope you will understand this and act accordingly.

Suryadi, at the age of 8 I decided to be a graphic designer and technical illustrator, thanks to a set of pens from my grandfather. 41 years later, I am still learning and always will be.

It might look easy, draw something in Corel / Illustrator and make money. It's not. 5% of everything I create for design websites sells - that's one design in 20.

People may be telling you that your logos are amazing — my friends and family did the same, telling me to take my "portfolio" to studios and get work when I was 16. I didn't get a job in design until eight years later, being young and stupid I thought the professionals were wrong and didn't see my talent.

You are not a designer, you will not be a designer the next time you upload a logo or after you upload another 100.

You might be an amazing Soto Tangkar cook, so why not try that for a career?

Suryadi18,

Listen carefully. Well... Read carefully.

Yes, take the time to read this post in full; read it attentively. Seriously.

LogoGround is not a critique website; LogoGround is a logo marketplace for established designers.

That being said, some novice designers will get logos approved and they might ask for advice here for some of their declined submissions, and that's okay if the declined submissions have some potential. The community is very open to help novice designers.

However, you seem to fail to realize that the community can not help you for most of your submissions. For 1½ months, you have been posting here and the community is telling you that you need to learn the basics of design first. This is abundantly clear by reading all the posts above. You will not get better overnight; you need to find a way to patiently learn the basics (buy a design book, watch online tutorials, go to design school, etc.), emphasis on the word "patiently". Yes, this requires a lot of patience.

It is very sad to see that you are clearly not reading people's advice here. You are completely ignoring the many comments above and you seem to be waiting for someone to tell you "do exactly this and your logo will be guaranteed to be approved". You will not receive such a magical answer to miraculously repair your logos and have them all approved, regardless of how many times you keep on trying.

Besides learning the basics, as it has been said before, you also need to find a critique website and submit there instead of LogoGround. Seriously.

For your convenience, here's a link to a post that lists a handful of critique websites:
https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/35605/

Accordingly, you should pick one of those websites; maybe the one in the selected answer (big green check-mark). Stay on that particular website for at least a year (and do not submit to LogoGround for that year). After a year, if you start receiving positive feedback from that critique website, then and only then, you can come back to LogoGround and try submitting again. But if after a year of being on that critique website you still have not received positive feedback, then that will mean that this profession is not for you.

Hopefully you will follow this advice and hopefully we will see you in one year from now.

All the best,

Ortega Graphics

@suryadi18

Look. Your design isn't smart, creative or brilliant (that's all).

If seen from the shape of the ambulance you made. Bad. The letter H is too common. You ruined it with no neatness and inconsistent. Where both pointed shapes of the upper and lower sides are not the same. After all, why should there be space between H and the car if you make the body of the car by utilizing the empty space between 2 H stem, one car has enough to close the gap between the stem H.

Design is not like just overlapping between one object and another object and call it art! In creating a good logo, you must build a solid and beautiful design. Just like building a house, a little inaccuracy of one side of the pole, the house will collapse. The logo has many types and styles. You can't mix it all up to get a pleasant impression when seen. A reliable designer always relies on precision and accuracy in designing. Neat, congruent, consistent and balanced. All must be in a logo. And much more I can say.

But as a designer who has little experience, I will say you still haven't learned anything about design. Learn more until you realize that all the designs you make are very bad. Not only you, I myself who are working on design feel my design is far from perfect compared to others (still bad). And I'm still learning while making these logos.

Imitate the styles of logos made by Gregory M, Loya, Futura-San, Ortega graphic, Zveronika, etc (and many more without being able to mention them one by one). As long as your logos can still be distinguished from theirs in terms of style, you are not ready to be here. Too much have to learn, friends. But never give up!

@suryadi18

I am someone who attended Fine Arts Faculty - Graphic Communication department and exceeded in it and was on top of my colleagues, i decided to go freelance and to deal with international clients, only to find out one simple fact: I was a very bad graphic designer. It didnt matter what i learnt and what i was lectured and how many tutorials i followed or how many tests i passed, i didn't have experience, i didnt know what is a good design from a bad design. i knew the principles just didnt know how to apply them. 10 years later designing almost every single day, i know now a bad design when i see it and i know if my design is going to be accepted here or not and know how to balance the design very well.

So my advice is don't just learn principles, but also learn how to apply them, look at other great designers here as @ava_nauval mentioned. make the rest of this year for looking at and imitating great designs, you will find plenty on dribble. It is not about having patience or how many tutorials you seen or how many books you have read, your brain needs time to process all the information you are providing to it, you need to train your mind to actually practice and understand design. Right now you are like someone who been doing sports for only few days and decided to go to the Olympics next month, it just wont work.

please try take the rest of the year learning and processing every single thing you learnt. If you submitted another logo here and asked again for help anytime soon, this is gonna be just you being stubborn and refusing to take any step towards being a real graphic designer.

From the video courses linked here id noticed that most wouldn't qualify here. Those present proper technique but the logos made are too generic. The logo cant be completely generic, it cant also be so weird and unique that it doesn't make any sense. Also, you need to understand that a good logo should use 1 - 3 colors. Keep consistent style across the entire image. Limit useless clutter and detail as to not overpower the basic shape. Be clear to view, preferably even in small format. It also NEEDS TO LOOK PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL. This is a place where we try to attract clients to because of quality good professional designs, its not an art school. We cant approve something that wouldn't sell, there's no point and its damaging to the site to display sub standard attempts at logo design.

Try to draw on paper first. Maybe the ease of drawing curves by hand will let you design better. I can see your limited skills at using the design software funnels you down to using straight lines a lot. Your curved lines often have awkward curvature and inconsistent width.

You also cant excuse your bad images by saying you are a beginner and that's good enough for a beginner. While its true that it maybe good enough for a beginner amateur and what you can expect from one, this site has to supply a good enough quality to sell and amateur designs will not make the cut. Once you have something that looks undeniably professional, then try to upload it here. Maybe from there we can actually have it approved or be close enough that it will be possible to fix it with minor improvements.

Look at sony, cocacola, apple, twitch, johnie walker and guiness. Various famous brands and compare them side by side to your first two designs. If you can see and understand why yours isn't up to standard in that comparison, why one is pleasant and professional and the other isn't you should give up.
