    How can you call yourself a graphic designer and then write an article saying you don’t need a graphic designer to make a logo and anyone with illustrator can make a logo. Are you serious???! You can’t be a real graphic designer and believe this. Logo design is more of a science than art so not everyone can design one. It’s people like you that are disrespecting the design community and ruining the industry and why clients think logos should only cost $5.

  • Daniel Davis

    Henny Kel, was you born stupid or did you have to work real hard at it? How are you going to call yourself a graphic designer and then incourage possible clients not to hire graphic designers? Where’s the logic?

  • Jonathon B

    For one this is a shitty logo , second your encouraging people to use to use horrible royalty free vector art. Lastly your shitting all over real designers who are passionate about their job and also need to make a living. I know im being harsh but this article is a joke and that says a lot about the person who wrote it.

  • This article should be deleted from Designhill because it discourage client to hire real designer here. Making logo is not merely putting shapes here and there, but we need to think seriously about the shapes, colors, etc so it can convey the message from company. And the vector pack you mentioned is not eligible for logo design, because all shapes in logo should be hand made.
