Rebrands can be exciting, but how do you know if or when it’s time for your own brand to undergo this type of transformation? Our Art Director shares some insight on the signs to look for and when it might be time to talk to us.
While some rules should be broken, our designers recommend sticking to these ones when designing a logo.
When creating a logo, there are a few key rules that a designer should follow that will help ensure a solid end product. For starters, never use online services that allow you to choose from preexisting logo galleries or cost $10. A logo should be relevant, personal, and original.
As a graphic designer, I am more of a visual person than a verbal person. So this month, instead of writing a blog post, I decided to create a cartoon series inspired by the very well-known American cartoonist Charles Barsotti.

Travelling with a camera is a must. We all want to have a visual reference we can look back on, and most importantly share the experiences we had while visiting a new place. Cameras can also become a distraction for the traveller – constantly finding interesting points of view, setting up a perfect frame for your shot, lugging around a rather large DSLR with multiple lenses, etc.
