    As Aiste mentions, coincidence is not absolving in logo design. Due diligence to determine that a logo concept is unoccupied is a necessary part of the process. Lawsuits come up all the time when it is neglected (like F1 and Futuro).

    That's why perceived difference is key.

    The icon doesn't suck but it doesn't seem appropriate to be posting here.

    I prefer when that is the central job of an app icon, and sometimes logos do this too but the central job of a logo is probably more to be a distinctive symbolic 'sponge' to invest value into over time.

    I'd bet that most logos do not convey any significant amount of function/purpose.

  • Posted to A design tool that is also a developer tool. Introducing profiles in Hadron., Oct 30, 2018

    I got access to the preview and have been using it to create a mockup of a new version of my agency's site. I've wanted to get into front end web for a long time but it's felt too intimidating to tackle. Hadron's approach has helped me break through the barriers. Looking forward to playing with this new stuff.

    You can buy a Sketch kit and just drop it into Figma. There's a built in Sketch file importer.

    I'm seeing indigo text links used in a handful of other sections and I think your guidelines have appropriately shunned it because they are indeed uncomfortable to detect.

    Not a 'team', just two people with edit access. There is no shared file space, no team components, no benefits connected to what they define as a 'team'
