“No. I don’t make free logo designs” Poster
Yesterday I received a Tweet that just really irked me. Someone just came out and asked me if I ‘made’ free logo designs, and if I would, could I DM them.
I think anyone that knows me, or knows of me a little bit, would know that this is the sort of thing that ‘fires me up’, and provides me a little fun with a return salvo.
@thelogosmith do you make free logos? if so could you leave me a DM please

Even if you don’t know me, it would seem common sense that asking such a question is just pretty rude, and disrespectful.
Sure, you never know unless you ask, but if what you are asking is stupid, then you must also expect some kind of reply that will probably not be to your own liking.
I replied to that tweet with this, which I felt was pretty straight talking for me:
No. I don’t make ‘free’ logos… https://t.co/tDyUADkiMK

Then I read it a few times and it reminded me of a poster I designed a few years back: No. I don’t design logos. I pull them out of my ass, and I felt there was some more mileage to get out of that poster format.
So here we are: a revised version of the ‘ass poster‘ still typeset in Helvetica, now targeting anyone who’d dare ask for a ‘free logo design’.
I love graphic design; oh the freedom.
Feel free to download and print it etc.
