Quick quiz: is your logo legit?


Right folks, here it is: the quiz we promised you last week. Do it to find out if your logo is working the way it should be. Is it a keeper, or should you trash it and start from scratch? Maybe it's your nasty logo that's affecting your turnover and causing clients to go elsewhere. 

Have your logo handy in a Word document, with your printer ready to go. Do the quiz. The moment of truth has arrived. And we don't need to tell you where to come if you need a logo revamp or a sparkling new one. We'd love to hear your feedback. Post your comments or email us at design@cosmic-creations.net. Have fun!
