What Your Logo Says About You

A logo is the face of your company: what the logo says, its symbolism and message is the most important thing to consider. Stand out from the crowd and show your identity! Think about how your logo can be relevant to what your business does and how it can convey your brand identity. It must say the right thing about your brand. Design a logo that supports the message you want to convey. Who you’re targeting should determine your design. Define your customers demography to decide on the color and font, as different colors and shades have different effects on people. Also, while bright colors and simple fonts will make your business look fun, green and brown with minimal designs will convey an earthy feel.

What Makes Your Logo Special

Memorable logos avoid trends and grab attention: they are simple, unique and distinctive. Make sure to have a versatile logo : it must work in black and white and in coloured version, and in different sizes. Check out the competition but don’t follow the trends. Stand out from your competitors with a timeless logo design! Play with the shapes, colors and font to find the perfect combo to convey your message and set yourself apart from your competition.
