    I really agree with the point of “Upside down” thing. People like mind games rather than a straight forward ideas. And color combination has a direct effect on any logo. Logo should be simple and elegant. I designed my first logo from Cattleya Graphics. Those days I was looking for simple and elegant logo, but I wanted my visitors to think a bit about the logo. Therefore I think almost all the people love logos which has a deeper meaning than the usual outer look. Anyway your article will be appreciated by all the people who are looking to design a logo for their business.

    Have a great day.

    Hello

    Cool list out here of all blogs We believe graphic design is about more that just “being pretty” — It’s about using images, infographics, illustrations, charts, graphs and layouts to communicate ideas, and sell products or services. By utilizing graphic design and visual branding, companies accomplish organic engagement and build lasting relationship with clients.

    Thanks

    Regarding Martin
