Knock knock... Anybody home? Quatre mois ont passé depuis le début de mon travail de refonte. On ne peut pas dire que j'ai fait preuve d'assiduité. Mais au final, c'est pour le mieux.

Logos do not come out of a flash of inspiration. They need to convey your brand personality and speak to the type of customers you want to reach.
