In every organization communication is vital. We need to be able to tell others about what our product, service, or cause is all about. We communicate about what we do with elevator pitches in person. Sometimes we create brochures and business cards. Other times we make power point presentations or videos. A short logo animation can be […]
Calling all logo designers. We had a few different logo design partners of the years, but for one reason or another they have moved on. We would like to be able to recommend 3-5 different logo designers that we are partnered with and trust.
Here is the offer:
1) Show us your stuff.
2) Convince us we can […]

Other times not. This animation was somewhat removed from my original vision. I still have a hard time with […]
I love this logo. It is simple, elegant, and the colors work great. I have come up with a formula for logo designs and animation. Here it is: Ugly logo = ok logo animation at best. Awesome logo = good logo animation at worst. So it would be pretty difficult to mess this one up. […]
