www Smashing Mag

I came across the website below while having a rummage around online. It’s great for tutorials and list-oriented articles on design. There’s a page about ‘great logos’ and their designers which is worth having a look at.

The Illustrator tutorials are okay but I got through them all in a couple of days and they can be quite repetitive. In fact, it’s probably worth pointing out that you should only take them as a means of learning techniques. A lot of them involve making something look shiny or 3D — I’d be weary of doing that for the sake of aesthetics. As it says on the site, doing something for aesthetic purpose (like the ghastly drop-shadow, for instance) are basically giving a design an expiry-date. So…I would learn the techniques and ignore the aesthetics…
