Your logo is a prospective customer’s first impression of your company. No great company is without that first image of its brand and what they stand for. As you design your business image, you must consider several points to make a genuinely impactful impression. Below are the best tips for creating a logo.
Define Your Logo
Know precisely what your business stands for and what it has to offer. To do so, ask yourself these questions. Who is the target audience? What encompasses the purpose of the company? What kind of personality does it have? What can your company do better than any other like it? What makes it unique? Defining your brand represents the company’s identity. When someone sees your logo, they should immediately be able to tell what it stands for.
Make Your Logo Stand Out
It is tempting in the graphic design world to use the same ideas repeatedly and form clichés. As you think about possible ideas, check up on the competition to see what already exists. How are their logos the same? How might yours be different from the rest? Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.
When designing a logo, color is just as important as form. Colors communicate different emotions and cultural connotations, so be deliberate about what color(s) you choose. Specific colors also invoke other feelings, so it would be wise to keep that in mind while designing your image.
Font Is Important
Along with color, the font of your text communicates a personality. Two broad categories for fonts are serif and sans serif. Serif fonts include the “serifs,” the little feet on the letters’ ends. Sans serif fonts do not have these feet. Two other font categories are script and display fonts. These make your text more of a focal point rather than an image.
The Right Type
While color and font make up the details of a logo, There are seven main types of symbols to choose from for your template: letter marks, wordmarks, pictorial marks, abstract logo marks, mascots, combination marks, and emblems.
Simplicity For Your Design
Could you keep it simple? Remember, less is more than all the nuances and aspects that make up the perfect logo. When you can pinpoint your brand identity, you will be better able to minimalize it. Keeping your logo simple makes your brand more recognizable to your audience.
