    Up next, 10 colours in greyscale.

      Followed by 10 examples of square circles. ;)

      Haha, maybe the title should have been “Flat Logos with the Illusion of Depth” - I opted for the short title even though it has holes.

    Hi there DN! Hopefully this is the correct category. None of these logos are my own, I just curated them. :)

    Do you guys think #6 (DM) counts? I was torn.

      I liked you right up to your click-bait line.

      That's when I clicked your name, saw this was your first share, noticed you worked there, and realized you're just trying to get clicks.

        Hi Dirk. I reviewed the guidelines before posting and I thought this would be a substantive contribution. I wasn't attempting to hide anything. Your point is taken though! ;)

          Oh, it's not about rules. It's about people realising when they're being sold to.

            I totally understand where you're coming from Dirk, and I didn't mean to come off that way. To be fair, I posted 24 articles on my site before experimenting with one like this that has an intriguing title. I don't have ads or anything spammy on the article; its just a curated list of interesting logos with common traits and credits. Also, I think the definition of click-baiting is when the thumbnail or title is misleading. The thumbnail/hero is from the contents of the article, and the title couldn't be more descriptive (or plain). I think it's just effective.

            With that said, I understand your point that it looks better if I share other content first before sharing my own. Fair enough. Obviously the line of what comes off as self-promotion is a blurry one. While I disagree with you overall, I have absorbed your feedback and will learn from it. Cheers. :)
