Heat wave in Australia kills 23K flying foxes

A historic heat wave in Australia killed off thousands of flying foxes late last year.

Animal Symbolism in Logo Design, Graphic Design & Branding

A company’s logo can be as synonymous with their brand as the product that they offer consumers.

For many companies throughout history, this brand awareness is curated using animal symbolism in their logo. Depending on the type of animal chosen, a brand is strong, fast, luxurious, caring,...
