Bi-Weekly Blog Round-Up

Hello everyone,
Happy Spring! I’m not sure how the weather has been where you are located, but it’s beautiful here in New England! We are taking full advantage of working remotely and moving our “office spaces” outside in the warm sunlight. 

March is coming to an end, and it’s been a busy one. As always, we love watching new companies find the perfect logo for their brand, and we continue to offer you a vast collection of resources for everything business, entrepreneur, and branding related.

In this newsletter, we have an exciting new blog post that gives you a comprehensive list of not only the best design contest services, but compares their pricing, and what they offer. We know we’re the best and we’re not afraid to get compared to the competition!

Have a great weekend!
