“On Demand Graphic Design”? For real?

Changing Trends. Ever notice that the traditional way of doing something can almost become non-existent overnight?

But the truth is that almost everything is eventually taken over by a new or improved way of doing something. Lately, there has...

American Airlines’ New Logo.

It looks as though American Airlines has joined the many companies that are updating their new logos and has for the first time -since 1967-updated their logo. It seems to have taken many folks by surprise that they chose such a different design from the one they have had for past 45+ years.

Previously, Arby’s was owned by the same company that owns Wendy’s, but is now owned by Roark Capital Group as of 2011, who owns around 1,100 of the locations with the rest being franchises in the U.S. and around the world, with a total of approximately 3,600...
