Make the logo bigger. Or how clients show their power using only four words.

When you work on Advertising or Design there is one sentence you will hear at least once a day. A sentence that can ruin the work and patience of an Art Director and his morale.

This sentence, with only four words, has been killing creative artwork for decades. It has been ruining beautiful designs and turning them into a mess…

Without harming any Art Director or Designer´s feelings.

And this is an example of how this addon works.
