Many people underestimate the power of logos.

Stock Vectors are everywhere, im magazines, on TV ads, sometimes even on the clothes that you wear. On more than one occasion I have looked at a design that is meant to be passed off as an illustration or corporate identity and recognised that some of the elements used are in fact stock vectors.
