    I'm going to be blunt because it won't do you any good if I sugar-coat the truth. I'm not in a position to hire anyone, so you can take my opinions for what they're worth, but my initial impression of...

    Whatever it may mean coming from me, which isn't much, I support you in spirit. One of the reasons I got interested in graphic design was that I thought it was very much a "proof is in the pudding"...

    Hi Gang

    How do I go about searching for a logo that might look like the one I'm currently designing - all I'm getting back are graphs as it's with a bunch of boxes.

    Is there something more than google images to find this out? It's a whole lot less work to do this at the beginning of the design process, rather than start over a ways down the road.

    Have you tried Tin Eye? http://www.tineye.com/
    This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

          You run a real trademark search.

          Doing this yourself can be time consuming and a bit iffy if you don't know what you are doing but good to try prior to registration.

          And for the record, this is what the Trademark office considers "Likelihood of Confusion" when assessing whether a mark is too similar to someone else's.
