Logo is liked

Happy to say that my BigFatRobot logo has made it to the members' favourites section on LogoPond - yay!

This made me think how important these peer networking sites are. Designers are oft isolated souls, working in dusty little industrial-chic garrets, pulling vectors and pushing pixels, with only an overlord (who is usually an accountant) or a client (who is usually an accountant) stooping behind us, saying things like "it just doesn't feel right" and we are always subject to their outrageous whims and “minor tweaks”. By the way, the phrase “minor tweaks” is kryptonite to even the most super of designers, when muttered at the wrong time it can reduce us to a shakey souffle of our former selves. But these peer to peer sites give us an opportunity for encouragment and constructive critique. I say "Rock on, LogoPond!"

"Minor tweaks" evoke the same fear in coders, trust me :)
