We’re officially calling for a moratorium on saltire logos. It’s gotten nearly as bad as the skull and crossbones design fad of double aught six. Seems designers can’t resist the X mark, and who can blame them? Half the work is already done for you. Just throw in four icons or letters and you’re done.
Just go back to turning your initials into a logo. Or maybe use a nice globe, light bulb, speech bubble, or swoosh in there. Don’t forget Helvetica and the color Red.
