    Uber has a new logo

    I like minimalist logos, but things have gone too far. At least have some type of graphic representation. I'm looking forward to the day when we look back and say "remember when everyone just used a black rectangle with their name in a sans serif font? That was dumb."

    Interesting article. What is even more interesting is the study linked from it.

    Life Cereal gets new box, quaker man gone from branding

    I wish I could find a picture of that old dude, looking like he was about to take a beating, replying "Harumph!" Alas, it doesn't seem to be on the world wide web.

    Life Cereal gets new box, quaker man gone from branding

    Life is my favorite cereal, and I'm an old man, and I'm a curmudgeon, and I like the old box. Harumph! I bet the Quaker is looking on from wherever Quakers go and harumphing with me.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Carolina. Oh, Carolina. Looks like they took a field trip to Myrtle Beach to study the artistic techniques of the local air brush artists for font inspiration.

    Boring Freelance Tax-Related Question

    I'm a full-time freelancer and I previously worked at a CPA firm for 20 years. To be safe, you'll want to hold back 30%. The advice here is good. There are a lot of factors that can affect that number, so it's best to check with a tax professional. Depending on how much you make, the Feds are going to want you to file quarterly estimated tax returns, but you can worry about that later. Oh, and get a separate bank account for all your business stuff.

    Nobody Cares About Your Logo

    I saw this article. Sounds like he got dumped by that hot logo designer who works down the hall.

    New Thumbtack Logo

    That's interesting. I'm sure that's technically true, but I think when most of us imagine a thumbtack, the visual connection is from the orange logo. Maybe they're trying to educate us on semantics.

    New Thumbtack Logo

    Thumbtack is a website for finding services, kind of like Angie's List. As a freelancer, I have used it from time to time to pick up work in slow times. They have gone from orange to primarily black. Users see the word mark much more often than the graphic icon. Nothing particularly wrong with either version, but I'm calling it a downgrade. Seems much less recognizable.
