Do you know how important part your suppliers play in your business’s success?

Do you know what part suppliers play, or can play in your business success? Well, suppliers are the ones who help you to build your company’s credibility. How do they do it, there are so many reasons for that. Let’s talk about the top 3;

1. On time delivery: Delivery issues can make your customers vanish like they were never there. This unfortunate scenario can occur when your customers aren’t getting their ordered products on time. Here, the one who is responsible for this is your supplier, so you have to make sure that the supplier you deal with is dependable and give you on-time delivery.

2. Quality of goods: It is apparent that you will be able to make people trust you only if your products are good. Building good relation with the suppliers helps small business owners to get good quality material from the suppliers because the supplier won’t trick you if you have a good relation with him and when he is happy doing business with you.

3. Competitiveness: it’s the suppliers who can tell you exactly what your competitors doing with their products as they are in the market and hold links with other suppliers so they can tell you what’s going on in the market. Also, they can give you tips on how you can make your product different and better from the rest of your competitors with new business ideas.

Many people take the suppliers for granted and think that because they write the order, they're in the dominant position and can exploit it with unfair demands, rather you should work nicely towards building a good business relation with him so you can work productively on long term basis.

Corporate Logos- Wastage of Money or Sure Shot Return on Investment!

If all humans look alike how would you be able to recognize each other? Just imagine the mess it would create. With all having the same face, there will be no uniqueness and individuality of their own. Same is the case with the business world; a company without a corporate logo is like a human with no face at all. It doesn’t matter what field of business you are in, you cannot stand out from your competitor without a logo.

Most of the businessmen still believe that business logo designing is wastage of money. May be corporate logos can create a big effect on your business expenses but you cannot ignore the fact that it also leaves uncountable long-term benefits. To put it simply, Logo design surely pays off!

Corporate Logos Construct Your Business Future! HOW?

Experts are always exerting small business owners to construct a brand for their startup business; they usually don’t give significant reasons for this. This is what I want to deliver through this post. Over efficient business owners think that they can easily carry their business efficiently without a visual identity, ignoring the fact that it is nearly impossible in such a fiercely competitive business world. It can possibly save you a little amount of money at the beginning leading you to short- term business success. While your potential customers and investor need to be assured that you are not an easy fish and have solid aims to remain in this business with future mind set. And trust me you cannot do serious business without a business logo.

Corporate logos will make your service and products striking and memorable in the market, as everybody knows that people tend to remember what they look instead of what they read. Nevertheless, people who believe they can construct their corporate image through personal PR are totally wrong. Creating a logo that is more persistent in all over business promotion materials such as; stationary design, websites and business cards helps a lot in building a sturdy visual identity for your business.

Thereby, it’s not the time to take risks….

It is graveling that a businessmen invest his lots of money in stock exchanges with no return on investment guarantee while over-leaping the importance of logo design, which is a type of investment guaranteeing inestimable sure shot return in your business.

Developed by Capcom Inc. The logos of resident evil are as great as the game itself, depicting the elements of living dead and supernatural terror. Most of the resident evil logos have red color with distorted backgrounds and freaky type fonts that give the glimpse of resident evil game series.


F.E.A.R (First Encounter Assault Recon) is a horror-themed first-person shooter game developed by Monolith Productions and brought out by Vivendi. F.E.A.R was released in October 17, 2005, and it has been an impressive game. The logo of FEAR has the true element of terror. Those letters of F.E.A.R which are a little bit atremble always sent a fiery vibe to my spine when I used to play this game.

GTA (Grand Theft Auto):

GTA (Grand Theft Auto) is a video game series launched by Rockstar Games and is a very popular game among gamers of all ages.

WWE WRESTLEMANIA LOGOS: the complete Anthology (Part 1)

I have been one of the craziest fans of WWE since I was 7 or 8. Wrestling was the first sport that I really liked watching. The entire idea of wrestling was great for me. Like other wrestling fans, I used to be on the edge of my seat when wrestlers like Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels and The undertaker were to apply their finishing maneuvers to their opponents. It is kind of funny thing to confess that I wanted to become a pro wrestler instead of a doctor, engineer or a pilot (like usually kids want to become).

Being a logo designer, hundreds of logos come to my sight on daily basis but only few catch the attention. WWE WrestleMania logo series is one of them. It has been 26 years since WrestleMania 1 came out and the show is still running wild and is one of the most successful sports entertainment events of all times. This year (2010) the most recent WrestleMania that held was WrestleMania 26. It was an instant classic like always, and the logo of WrestleMania was as great as the WrestleMania itself. So I decided to write a complete anthology of WM (WrestleMania) logos to take all of you wrestling fans back to your most memorable wrestling moments. This series will be divided into many parts so we can talk about each WrestleMania logo meticulously. So, here we go.


WrestleMania is a pro wrestling pay-per-view event, produced once a year in late March or early April by World wrestling entertainment (WWE). It is considered the greatest event of WWE, as it is the most thriving and longest-running professional wrestling event in the world. WrestleMania is also known as;

"The Granddaddy of Them All"
"The Grandest Stage of Them All" and,
"The Showcase of the Immortals”

First WrestleMania came out in 1985 which was held in Madison Square Garden in New York City (the 10th and the 20th editions were also held there), and, as of 2010, 26 editions have been held uninterruptedly since then, with WrestleMania 27 to be held in 2011.

Now, the WrestleMania logos:

WrestleMania I: March 31, 1985 – Held in New York City at Madison Square Garden: In this very first WrestleMania logo, the designer came up with the color shades of blue, Golden and orange to show the beginning of a new event called the WrestleMania. The extended lines which come out from “W” and “M” cover the WrestleMania letters while “R” extends and connects to “S” in a very good manner. As a finisher, the addition of WWF trademark on top of the WM logo.

WrestleMania II: April 7, 1986 - Held in Los Angeles at Los Angeles Sports Arena: this one comes out to be the replica of WM 1 logo just with the addition of number “2” in the background in the red glow effect to depict that it’s the logo of WM 2. However the colors of the type fonts are dull than the first one.

WrestleMania III: March 29, 1987 - Held in Pontiac, Michigan at the Pontiac Silverdome: Another replica of the first and second logos of WM. However, this time there was a major change in the logo which wasn’t noticed by many people. It was the number (3). The appended number with the WM logo which represents the series number of WM was changed this time from usual numerals to Roman numerals. This Roman number format is being used till now.

Unfortunately, WM 4, 5 and 6 logos came out as just the replica of the previous ones without any modifications which really bothered me as every WM event is an instant classic and therefore every WM logo should be unique too. The actual change came up with the 9th logo of WM (I will discuss the 9th logo and the rest of the WM logos in the coming parts of this article.)

WrestleMania IV: March 27, 1988 - Held in Atlantic City at Trump Plaza

WrestleMania V: April 2, 1989 - Held again in Atlantic City at Trump Plaza

WrestleMania VI: April 1, 1990 - Held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the SkyDome

WrestleMania VII: March 24, 1991 - Held in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Sports Arena: This logo was a bit changed as the designer tilted the same WM logo which was being used by WWE. Nevertheless, a change is a change.

WrestleMania VIII: April 5, 1992 - Held in Indianapolis at the Hoosier Dome: A replica of WM 7 logo.

Till the 8th logo, most of the logos were lookalikes, but as the 9th logo of WM came, the entire WM logo trend got changed. You will discover those changes in the coming article. So, stay tuned and keep me prompted with your precious comments.

“High Quality” Custom Logo Design: A Necessity You Can’t Over Look

“High Quality” Custom Logo Design: A necessity you can’t over look

A custom logo design is something that is created specifically, uniquely and creatively for a business. The competition between logo design services is furious. There is a deluge of logo design service providers listed all over from local phonebooks to online search engines. However, the competition does one good thing; it cuts the costs of the logo design services down. Although, there is a side effect to this advantage that is; Lower prices can result into inferior services.

Those logo design services that provide low-priced logo designs often use templates, that’s why they are frequently blamed of using sets of templates for diverse logos. When a client orders a business logo, these “low-cost” logo designers create a logo design based on a template with a little, or sometimes no modifications at all. This sort of practice destroys the main purpose of a business logo.

A companies logo is the most important part of a brand identity. With efficient marketing and advertisement, a companies logo becomes a business’s visual representation in the minds of the existing or potential clients.

The marketing strategy for a business should be like this that you can make your product noticeable, the planning should have something that leaves the clear picture of your brand to the clients rather then a déjà vu impression. A business logo design anchored on a template will give the impression of the same “déjà vu impression” I am talking about. It will prompt the viewers of similar products or services they have seen before. This scenario may lead the business to un-favorable publicity.

So, how the small business owners make sure that the get a logo as good as they deserve? There are two ways for that; whether he goes for the cheap logo design services, or to the affordable logo design services. The cheaper one might save a few bucks but there is a big risk of adverse effects. At the other hand, an affordable logo design service would cost a few bucks extra, but would offer a really good custom logo design that will benefit your company in the most beneficial way.

Therefore, a custom logo design is what you need to acquire for your precious business.

Being a friend, I can never see my buddy moving towards a wild ocean without a life jacket; therefore I decided to talk to him later on.

Online business world is not less than a wild ocean, in which many dive but very few rise back and a logo plays the part of a life jacket to float and survive against the massive waves of competitors.

A Matter of Longevity in Logo Design

It is by far the most important quality of a corporate logo design that it should be able to portray the real message over an extended period of time. It should have ability to never fadeout with time and cultural changes. It may feel good to have a logo which is trendy, but how would you feel if you have to change it after a few years.

No business owner would like to have a logo which would be perceived as either outdated or old. Logos which are designed with a focus on current trends get outdated and old fashioned in a short period of time. Hence, one should take care of the longevity in a logo design while designing a one for his business.
