    I was referred by someone to this new business. He just sent me his "logo". I think I am going to need to have a conversation. He was very proud of making this all by himself online...I'm not sure if the calculator is there on purpose or accident? Guten himmel...

    Guten himmel? (God in Heaven?) I think the thing to the right is a bad interpretation of a magnifying glass.

    Any true artiest will quickly concur that it's not a calculator. It's a cheese grater.

    ei die Gott im Himmel. Just simply ask him to explain it all to you. Don't embarrass him or his attempt. Hopefully, once he realizes someone who does this stuff for a living cannot figure anything out, he might be more open to some good suggestions. Also, ask him what his friends or others have said about it. Perhaps, that's why the other person sent him to you.... to try and help/save his sorry a$$.

    Oh that's one of those old school 9-key calculators! You see children, back before we had the internet, numbers started at 1 and ended at 9!

    Just add a drop shadow and maybe a bevel or two to make it pop.

    Hell...as a kid we had 1 through nine AND a zero!

    That is why this CAN NOT be a calculator. But since the logo favors real estate, perhaps it's a four story tenement with a penthouse suite. The three little dashes are most likely clerestory windows for the third floor tenants.

    I think it needs more red. Lots more red.

    Maybe it's a TV control ?? Must be a new age one, where they don't use zeros anymore. Ya know, it's tough on the kids to know something can be as low as zero.​

    Zeros have been officially banned in schools, due to the fact that the term can be used as a weapon to shatter a child's fragile esteem.

    Not a calculator. He's showing that he does both residential and commercial buildings.
    The render is a dead ringer of the Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard.

    Have you seen the math they teach? Last year they were required to write out all these groups of bubbles for simply multiplication. It would take her 10 minutes to do 4 times 8. We took her out of public and are in homeschool. The curriculum has some songs to memorize her times tables. After 2 weeks she can times ANYTHING in seconds from her head.

    I just re-read this, thought the referral was reversed. Is it me, or does it always seem like the clients you get referred to, are always the worst clusterf*ck of a situation?

    Yeah, but the benefits supposedly come later on in stuff like long division (an incredibly valuable life skill?). My coworker's daughter could divide multiple digit numbers in her head in seconds. At the same time, I'm dreading helping my 7 year old when she gets into more difficult maths.

    Memorizing doesn't teach you much of anything though. I think that its good that they show the kids the actual basis for things, it helps kids develop problem solving skills. So when they become adults and work for you, they will come and say I fixed the printer instead of hey bossman, something is wrong with this thing, will you come fix it for me. It's like the teach a man to fish idea.
