Vector Usage


So I am very new to designing logos. I wanted to ask some of the more experienced designers their opinion on free ClipArt/Vector usage in designs. Obviously I aim to learn how to eventually get to the point where I would be self sufficient (make any and all artwork myself). It just seems that a lot of logos out there use images that are stock images. Is this ok or is it "cheating" so to speak.

You will never learn how to create a logo if you use free vectors. Try to put your ideas on paper first. You ll know what to do after that.

Depends how you use the free clipart / vectors. If you only use it partially, just to get the idea how you'd like your logo to look like, I don't think it's cheating. Yet don't expect to be original with free clipart / vectors ...
