Not really a tutorial, but still useful to the graphic designer...about 5000 coporate logos in EPS format.

That's a pretty cool logo resource. It's hard to get a usable .EPS version of a company's logo before you get your foot in the door. That's a good resource to customize a presentation package or 1st meeting leave-behind. I should direct a few of the clients I work with to that site... They don't always know where to access usable versions of their own logos. I don't know how many times I've had a client pull their logo off there website, attach it to an email and say "Here you go."

Make sure you verify those logos are their current ones before using them. Could be embarassing sending out a presentation or product design with their old logo plastered all over it.

Another way to get a company's logo for use (what I usually end up doing) is search their site for any downloadable .pdf files such as posted brochures or annual reports and open them in Illustrator. Most of the time I can find a vector logo there.

Thanks for sharing!... all those resources are good.
