Brandstack closes, leaves designers out of pocket
A lot of you will be familiar with Brandstack — a website selling pre-fabricated logos for a set-price. After three years in business, Brandstack has closed its doors, leaving designers unpaid for the work they sold.

“As many of you know, there is some unfinished business that won’t be taken care of. Many designers put their faith in Brandstack and were left short.”
— WES WILSON, BRANDSTACK
It’s a shame for those who’ve lost-out, but for me it’s just another signal that logos created without a client brief are nothing more than icons or clip-art, and there’s not a lot of profit to be made from clip-art sales.
