This is indeed a decent article for quickly making a marketable brand! As a visual designer myself, I spent lots of time looking for inspirations on dribbble and pinterest, and often get discouraged, feeling my work is not enough. The steps you showed are really helpful when we need to quickly have something done.
Thank you for sharing the tricks and it is very inspiring. The color tool and place to find icons/graphics are extremely helpful. I used to think that as this is my job, I need to design everything, the icons, illustrations, cover page, logo….Turns out it is too much work and time lol.
