3 Tips To Create Your Company Logo

Reading Time: 5 minutes

A company logo is one of the most important design decisions to make. It’s better to get the design right the first time as it will be seen on the business website, digital or print documents and advertisements.
For a logo to best represents a company and supports its goals, think about:

The company values and its audience

Think about your activity, what differentiates you from competitors, what you think your customers/audience love about you and what you want them to think about you.

The logo style your company wants

There are three main kinds of logo. (We can extend to 5 as seen in our previous article 5 Standard Types of Logos).

Icon/Symbol logos

Shell Apple

Some logos are simply a graphic icon, a simple yet accurate portrayal of the type of company and image. Many big brands use only a symbol logo because they’ve built up their brand in association with this icon.

Word/Letter Mark logos

Disney IBM

Other brands use a unique typographic representation of their business name. It may be the full name or just initials.

Combination logos

Starbucks Redbull

Brands often choose a combination of an icon/symbol and a word/letter mark when they want to use an icon but need to establish their brand name.

The colors for your logo

The psychology of color plays a huge part in how customers respond to your brand and messaging.

The choice of color for your logo can impact emotion in design and marketing, which can ultimately determine engagement, sales, profits, and overall performance.
