So, you want to knock up a logo, bang out a website and sell some stuff online.

Good idea.

But so much information is regurgitated reference to stateside brand behemoths such as McDonald's, Xerox and Kleenex.

Find examples of success that your aspirations can relate to and you'll find greater inspiration.
