Here's a surprising public spectacle...
In January we helped Mark Levison's Agile Pain Relife [sic] consulting make a very successful Typepad to Wordpress transition. Behind the scenes there is a very interesting design case study, we'd like to share.
Alas, homemade logos are often not as effective at presenting one's brand as a designer version.
Interesting strategy: scorning your customer on your blog. Personally, I think most logos are a waste of money and I'm not too impressed with the work shown here but come on! Scorning your client in public is just wrong. Here's what the client has to say:
Imagine my surprise when I noticed a blog post that mentioned me by name, discussed my business choices and denigrated my own logo. I contacted folivision to raise my concerns but they were dismissed. I would quote Alec’s remarks to me in private, but that would violate my promise above. Suffice it to say I can no longer recommend foliovision since you don’t know whether they will treat your discussions with any confidentiality.
How much is a good logo worth? I dunno. $0.00?
