I'm about 2 years into my MacBook Pro, and probably have another year before I upgrade again.
Seriously considering purchasing the surface - you can even use that handy dandy colour wheel, and draw right onto the screen.
Only downside I can see is that it's a 13.6" screen.
Anybody made the switch and regretting / loving it?

The only problem with this forum, is that some graphic designers are legit artists in their own right. Me on the other hand, I can stay on-brand, and layout like a boss.
And look on with awe at some of the incredible illustrative work you guys do.

That's awesome @adamdesigns - I wish I knew how to do more motion stuff.
I've done a few fun hand drawn gifs for a campaign I'm working on for a comedy theatre show and it's kind of made me feel like I wouldn't mind doing my own series:

@Scotty - I'm late to the party, but there's nothing worse than a screen poker. Particularly when you're on an older LCD monitor and you get that psychedelic explosion from where they thought it necessary to dig in their finger.
@Adamdesigns - I've had more than one art director lean on my shoulder while I was doing something. I'm 6'3", so I think they often do it as a bit of a power play.
@Jamesb - Nice work man!

Thanks all for your comments.
@AdamDesigns - you are 100% right. I am not a full time designer as i have to do other thing such as requirement collection for a project , communicate with developers and designers etc.
The reason why i am looking for "logo design inspiration" is that sometimes it helps to convince clients to understand the importance of Logo Design. Just a quick google search with the term "ecommerce logo design case study" and i have found this article : https://www.webalive.com.au/case-study-logo-design-inspirations-for-giant-ecommerce-companies/
Still not satisfied with the information. looking for something more informative.

@JohnH, yes - you're going to feel really slow and really out of your depth for at least the first two years out of uni. The only way to get around this is to keep making things, and to talk to others about how they make things - take what they do well and incorporate it into your workflow.
I didn't learn about EDMs at uni, it was all about Macromedia Director in the multimedia classes I took (and they were elective). What I've learnt is on the job, via reading Sitepoint books and reading the Campaign Monitor and Sitepoint forums. @Dan is right - you'll keep learning throughout your career. It will continue to feel as uncomfortable as it does now, but your foundation of understanding will slowly grow.
Sounds like the studio who made EDMs in InDesign did so because they weren't confident building in Photoshop either. Everyone finds their own way around things, not all of those techniques are the most effecient in the long run ;) My workflow is like @Dave and @Adamdesigns - I code in Campaign Monitor if appropriate. If I'm coding from scratch I love to use because it sets the scene nicely: http://foundation.zurb.com/emails.html
