Corporate Image

The corporate image otherwise known as the logo is, or should be, the atom in the design universe containing the color scheme and the typographic footprint to be used on all promotional materials. A poorly designed logotype dooms all future designs to mediocrity.

“...sane judgement abhors nothing so much as a picture perpetrated with no technical knowledge, although with plenty of care and diligence.
