Does your Company Needs a Logo?

Yes. Every company needs a logo. Why? Because that’s the very first thing people will see when they think of your company or your products. A logo is the front door of your business, and it has to be remarkable, unique and self-explanatory. Additionally, a professionally made logo helps your company build trust. Just take Apple as an example. They built a brand that people recognize, trust and even became a status symbol. That’s why they are able to charge 300$ for a book!

Now that you know you need a logo, let’s jump into the courses!
