55 Extremely Creative and Beautiful Logo Designs for Inspiration

55 Extremely Creative and Beautiful Logo Designs for Inspiration | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Logo design holds a very important role in the promotion of any brand. A logo is the main identity of an individual or a corporation. The logo design process is very complicated as it requires incorporating the complete image of a person or a company into one single image that would be used for this purpose for years.


A logo must be creative, otherwise it won’t stay in the minds of the viewers and thus, the brand would be forgotten too. A logo may be predefined or exaggerated depending on the need of the client. But the most important thing in logo designing is the, “less is more” strategy...

An Illustrated Celebration of the Many Things Home Can Mean

An Illustrated Celebration of the Many Things Home Can Mean | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

“Home,” Maya Angelou wrote in her magnificent meditation on belonging and (not) growing up, “is that youthful region where a child is the only real living inhabitant.”


Indeed, it seems that only for children, with their purity of feeling and their ability to“mediate the ideal and the real,” does the Venn diagram of home and house integrate into one fully overlapping circle. In adulthood, the circles drift further and further apart as we begin to project our conflicted dream-home ideals onto our real houses.In the impossibly wonderful Home (public library), illustrator and children’s book author Carson Ellis presents an imaginative taxonomy of houses and a celebration of the wildly different kinds of people who call them home...

A must see picture that evokes a myriad metaphors for home! A metaphor of hope, joy, success, oneness and belonging, the home and the family are the basic units of a society, often in happier times, a place of rest and a place of security. But then this is about happy homes and not the 'other homes!' The Happy Home is an antidote for bullying of all kinds, even cyberbullying thrown in!

25 Ways To Design an Awesome Event Poster and Create Buzz | Canva | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Posters are one of my favorite design projects because you can bend the rules so many different ways. They’re creative, bold, groovy and can provoke so many emotions too. Some posters get you excited and pumped up such as music or event posters. And then others are chock full of information. Some may contain much more information than others. The key is finding the right balance with headline, copy, images and logos. When you’ve achieved that, you’ve got one sweet poster.


Knowing your audience and product/service/event is the first bit of critical information for a poster. After that, the mood, emotion or reaction will lead to colors, fonts and graphics that complement the information. Below are 25 tips to finding the perfect design theme to convey the message....
