3 Free Logos (Vector)

on May 17th, 2010

Just cleaning through my dead concepts library – concepts that for various reasons did not make it, but are still stored away on my computer. I suppose I might as well give them away for free, maybe they’ll be useful to someone. Free for personal use – not for resale. A link back to this […]

Love it – if someone knows the designer let me know!

Your logo: think of it like a tattoo for your business

on April 7th, 2010

Whether you like tattoos or not, you probably know they are painful to get, disastrous to get wrong and rather difficult to remove. In other words, they’re there to stay – and you better like them even when you’re old and wrinkled.
