For all I know he could be legit... but you guys are cheap!

Yes, by all means, we want to avoid the time and consideration professional designers offer and go right to the lowest common denominator of grade-school dropouts whose portfolio’s crown jewel is a logo for their dad’s wholesale llama manure clearing house.

enlightening article.

“without the usual risk or cost associated with professional design.”

We definitely do not want any in-depth communication. We do not want any understanding of the company, the brand, or the direction and aspirations of the organization. We definitely do not want any long-term working relationships or any real investment in the single most important public-facing piece of design a company owns. We just want a :BLEEPING: logo for $250.


awesome article Voks! I never heard of them before this... but yes! Laughing
BTW Nice to see you round these parts, don't be such a stranger!

Nice site, Vokaris...and this rings so true, too...
Quote:
One of the key lessons that has stuck with me through the years concerned logo design. It’s not a fancy or even novel idea, but it boils down everything about the technical drafting of logos I’ll ever need to remember:

A logo should be able to look good on a golf ball.

Think about it. A mark should be unique and simple enough to be stamped on a tiny plastic white ball and still make an impression on people whacking it several hundred yards with a nine iron.

One of the more interesting things I’ve noticed about branding in general is that the larger the company, the simpler the logo. Microsoft. IBM. FedEx. CDW. The new Sprint logo. All of these brands can be reproduced perfectly on a golf ball. Common traits:

* Works just as well in plain black as it does in full color.
* Works well in dramatically reduced sizes, like a half inch.
* Simple design. Printing on a golf ball is not easy, and those little bumps are going to cause subtle distortions and possible ink runs. (One could almost replace the word “simple” with “forgiving.”)

brilliant idea Proc, and one that should have been rather obvious.

that way you also know you're going to get paid.

As is...
I could take every single logo you guys made, and not one of you would see a dime! Twisted Evil
