Got an e-mail from iStock this morning, sure many of you did, and was disappointed to read what their latest strategy/addition is going to be! I can't understand why iStock would wish to devalue their existing profile by providing cheap template style logo designs?! Surely they would be better sticking to selling stock photos (the core business) and stock vectors/videos. It annoys me and frustrates me that they mention 'a unique logo to brand their business', OK so there is a slim chance that it will be unique, but clearly not unique for the business in question, as a logo designer the research and understanding of the clients business and marketplace is the key to a successful identity, this is just wiped out with the new iStock offering. What's everyone thoughts on this? The official iStock forum thread has had a very mixed reaction!
