  • is it ok to leave lava lamps on 24/7???

      Candles. Be very careful with candles for your own safety. Do not leave candles burning unattended or near curtains. Turn off lava lamps - there is usually a recommended maximum time to leave them on. The last major student house fire in Bristol was caused by a lava lamp.

                    my daughters Lava Lamp is on a timer that comes on in the morning and later in the evening for a few hours, the timer keeps it from being on 24/7 yet it is on when she is around to see/enjoy it.

                        I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

                        Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

                        I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.

                        I don't think I understand your question, and maybe you misunderstood my rant. I wasn't necessarily critiquing your logo collection, just voicing my opinion on logo collections as a whole.
