Despite the fact that in the field of web design changes are happening at lightning speed, some points from that article remained the same and “migrated” in the current year.

Perhaps the site design trends are faster than the niche of logo development, or too little time has passed since the publication of the previous article (7-8 months) + now it’s only the beginning of the year. In the summer, be sure to revise this text and add to it with new chips, if any. Continue reading
