As you will all recall, Apple recently launched and presented the iPhone X. The first question that sprang to all the developers’  minds was about the rules and guidelines that everyone will have to follow while building the apps and websites for the iPhone X.

And yeah, basically, it’s all about this unusual curve on the upper part of the new smartphone.

As a key player in the template building industry, we couldn’t leave this situation without a look or a brief comment.

ThemeZilla, one of the WordPress template providers, is closing its doors for new customers. The official reason is shifting the focus of the company to eCommerce and other platforms, so people at ThemeZilla decided that they don’t want their WordPress themes’ website to languish and become tarnished without the proper development and attention from the team. Well, that’s a difficult, yet right decision.

We believe that it’s always important to make sure that you are ready to give your 100% to each and every client, so when you see that it’s not possible, it’s time to let it go and go conquer the other mountains.

It’s always sad to see someone leave this ‘game’, but we can only wish all the best to the ThemeZilla team!

How well do you remember the branding of the industry leaders?

This is the funniest and coolest thing that I’ve seen for quite a long time. Guys from the asked more than 150 Americans to draw the top 10 iconic logos from memory and uploaded all the drawings online.

The Starbucks logo made me laugh so freaking hard!

The idea is great, actually. We all admire the iconic logos like Apple, Starbucks, etc. But how deep are they ‘branded’ into our memory? This is a great way to see how important is the simplicity of your logo is.

You can see how easy it was for everyone to draw the logo of Apple and Ikea, for example. However, everyone had so many problems drawing the Dominos and Starbucks logos.

The statistics are fun, just take a look
