Each year level usually think of new logo designs that they can use during the intramurals. The teams will want a modern and creative logo to serve as their inspiration and distinguishing mark.

You will need to decide whether you will operate a home business or you will lease out office space. The former is a great option but once you get a steady flow of orders, you can now lease out office space. Choose a location that is easily accessible to the public (e.g. city center). Purchase the needed equipment like computer, printer, software, etc. The office should look professional and so you will have to come up with a suitable design. This is your chance to open a business that you’re passionate about. If you are creative and you have passion for what you do, you can succeed in this kind of business.
