The importance of a great logo and first impressions

The importance of a great logo and first impressions

We would all be guilty of making judgments based on first impressions from time to time.

You’d probably pass up an interview with a job candidate, for example, if the CV was written on a stained napkin. In fact, chances are no matter how qualified or sincere the applicant may be, you’ll probably choose to interview applicants with professional looking CV’s instead. The jobseeker may also wonder why he or she has trouble finding a job when they interview well, have plenty of experience and all the required skills.

The same principles apply to the first impression your business gives to potential customers, suppliers and business partners. They will make quick judgments about whether or not to do business with you based partly on how professional you appear to them initially. Just as a business owner would pass on the napkin applicant, so will customers move on and do business with someone else if they don’t trust you initially, no matter how qualified you actually are.

But having a good logo is about more than just making a good first impression. It can have a lasting impact on your company.

30 Jaw Dropping Infinity Pools from Around the World

An infinity edge pool also goes by the name of negative edge, zero edge, infinity pool, disappearing edge, or vanishing edge pool. Infinity pools are simply swimming pools which give the illusion that they go on into the horizon, as if they go on forever. In reality, the water flows over one or more edges creating this ‘vanishing’ effect. The infinity pool design concept is said to have originated in France, where one of the first vanishing edge designs was utilized in the “Stag Fountain” at the Palace of Versailles in the early 1600s.

Relaxing in this utter luxury is not cheap. Infinity pools are very expensive and require extensive structural, mechanical (hydraulic engineering) and architectural detailing. You will mostly run into these types of marvels at exotic resorts, exclusive estates, in advertisements and in other luxurious places. Lusting at these stunning images creates a desire for one. Below we have listed thirty jaw dropping infinity pools for your inspiration. Enjoy!

Cleverly Hilarious WTF Posters By Estudio Minga

Estudio Minga is a creative studio based in Argentina. They started a project called WTF and with gaining popularity they had to come up with WTF2 as well.  What makes this achievement even better, is that it was started just for fun. These posters are very minimal, and yet cleverly executed with funny imaginations. You can also buy these posters from their online shop for $19 each.

WTF is an expression that somehow manages to be one of the most trending topic on Twitter and in our lives as well. Most people use a question mark afterwards to get the point through. Rather than using the same term for the other ‘w’s, who, when, where, and why, it makes more sense to actually state the word and follow it with ‘tf.’ We hope you will enjoy the following illustrations and spread the word!
