Who is The Logo Creative Publishing For?
Our readers and audience range from aspiring and professional designers, creative individuals and people involved in online businesses.
Below are a few main areas you must comply with
- All articles must be original and never published anywhere else (now or in the future, We do check, and we are really good!).
- Attribute links must be provided to link back to the source file or images.
- Your article requires at least 1500 words but for good practice aim for 2000 please try to use correct English and spelling, and try to edit before sending (We can help correct your grammar and spelling if your English is not so good.) If your article is very poorly written, The Logo Creative editor may send it back to you for you to rewrite.
- If your article includes any images, try to send these separately from your article, although still include them in your article document so we know the placing as this will allow our editor to publish the article quicker when images are sent separately.
- Please make sure that your article is written in a friendly manner and not biased in any way.
- Strictly “NO” plagiarism and all sources must be credited. (We remember each other well! and we will find out as we constantly check for duplication)
- You should be open to feedback from us that will improve your article.
To help streamline our publishing process and keep our articles consistent, below we have outlined our formatting style.
- Paragraphs should be 2-3 sentences in length. Articles and blog posts are often skimmed through, so it is good practice to present text in manageable portions as opposed to large and overwhelming chunks.
Bullet Points and Lists
- Where applicable, breaking up text through the use of bullet points and lists helps create visual interest in the article. Please use bullets for unordered lists and numerics for ordered lists such as items with numbered points. (eg - Logo design steps to follow). Items in a numbered list that include sub-points can be bulleted.
Headings and Subheadings
If portions of your text have headings, wrap that text in one of the following codes to help pull that topic out from the rest of the text.
- Use <h2><strong>Heading text here</strong></h2> for the main headings.
- Use <h3><strong>Heading text here</strong></h3> for subheadings.
If you are sending images please make sure that they are not watermarked, and of good quality and ok to be used openly on the web. Although we take great care in making sure images are open source or permission granted, we will not be held responsible if an image is copyrighted or use of has not been granted to the author.
Get The Readers involved
It's good practice to get the reader involved at some point during the article, and preferably at the end - this could be a question for the reader to help generate a discussion and encourage engagement and commenting in the comments section. This is not mandatory but good practice for user engagement.
At the end of your article include a short bio and picture to be included (If you prefer no picture that's ok just include a line or two about the author).
