how to design a successful brand—and arrange your legos according to your investment thesis

Note: this episode of the Usman Gondal Show is brought to you by the ScaleupDictionary.com — Your Morning Fix of Inspiration

design hits a target engineering can’t see — as I set out to design ScaleupDictionary.com — I am faced with a choice

I will not waste resources on doing surveys when I can just see what’s already working and replicate that, in my own way

so I followed in the footsteps of great artists

I used same colour as BuzzFeed for the logo because they’ve probably spent tens of thousands of dollars on finding the most energising shade of red

I looked at the Linkedin favicon and mashed both up it into a logo

later I found out reddit uses the same hue and even WordPress uses a rounded favicons

it feels good to break things down to their basic building blocks

find out patterns of success

and rearrange your legos according to your investment thesis
