I believe a logo design to be successful if it has the ability to stir feelings and emotions of a customer. Nowadays, a product is not considered merely as a commodity but a thing of pride and possession. The best of corporate brands are ones that generate feelings among their customers.
I’m learning so much. This is great ;)
This is very nice of you. You all have the best designs that I have seen and you really seem to know your stuff.
Huge collection of great web design resources. Thank you.
Please correct me if I wrong, I am playing dragon of atlantis right now. And I have no idea about Idle population in Dragons of Atlantis. I read in yahoo answer about this “Idle population are the people who don’thave anything to do. to use them either train them into troops or build another resource like lumbermill or farm and they will work there. The higher level the farm the more people it employs.” Is that true? …
Nice post. Being as an designer, I understand how useful these tools are and how helpful stuff these resources provide.
I would also recommend you to include an invoicing app in this post as an invoicing app is mandatory app to run a business and a designer is required to use one to manage his invoices and payments. I personally use http://www.invoicera.com to invoice my clients and to keep track of my projects and expenses. This really made my work so easy.
Really great tools. Thanks for share with us.
