    Great digital sources, but the “Letterhead & Logo Design” series by Rockport Publishers is indespensible in my opinion. http://www.rockpub.com

    Great post Steven (especially since we get a mention 🙂 )

    By the way Logosauce also runs design competitions where experienced designers and rookies alike can enter designs and win cash. User can search keywords and tags too. Build a portfolio and help clients find a great designer.

    Nice samples. Actually these samples only keep logic that corporate logo design should be highly instrumental in building your corporate identity and should successfully exude the company’s attitude. The viewers must have some idea about the disposition, character, or fundamental values of your company through your logo.

    Great post. You seem to have a good understanding that how to design a professional logo. When I entering your blog, I felt this. Come on and keep writing your blog will be more attractive. To Your Success!

  74. Logo plays a very important role in the brand remembrance of a company in the mind of the target audience. It conveys a lot about the company that uses it, and in the long run, becomes synonymous with its identity. Think of Yahoo!, Coca Cola, Google, and BBC, and immediately their logos will come to your mind. The identities of these companies have almost become synonymous with their logos. A graphic designing company works closely with its clients to develop their logo and other promotional material.
