StartUp Britain is a government-endorsed initiative "to make it easier for new companies and innovations to flourish and encourage people who aspire to start new businesses to work for themselves". As long, it seems, as that business is not graphic design

StartUp Britain is backed by a number of entrepeneurs. The homepage features David Cameron wearing his most 'visionary' expression. It is, the site promises, "helping Britain's future entrepreneurial talent by providing links to the web's best business resources, along with offers from some of the biggest brands in the country".

Below that initial promise is a list of four Top Tips to start you on your way. Number four is Create a Logo. And where does it link through to? Perhaps to a list of well-chosen UK design studios in various locations who could all benefit from the work? Nope, it goes to 99designs.com, the US crowdsourcing site where designers compete to knock out logos for 'from just $295'.
