Logo Design Prep Checklist

Designing a logo can be a daunting task even with the best tools in the world.  How do you capture the essence of who your company is in one small brand image?  On the surface, designing a logo can seem like an almost insurmountable task, but let us assure you that it doesn’t have to be.  One of the things that will make the logo design process so much easier is if you can do a little prep work ahead of time.

To help you get your head around the process of designing a logo, we’ve put together a straightforward and simple checklist.  Before you start the process of designing a logo, do yourself a favor and think through the following questions.  It will help focus your efforts and will probably give you some good ideas too!


a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngWhat is the name of your company or product?

The vast majority of logos highlight the company name or product and for most small businesses, we would certainly recommend using your company name.  There are cases (like the Boston Red Sox), that a company may choose not to incorporate the name, but for most small businesses, this is a no-brainer.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngIf the logo is for a company, what is your primary product?

What you sell can and should influence the design of your logo.  If it makes sense to tie in your industry or primary product in your logo, by all means, do so!  Remember that your logo not only needs to look good to your current customers, but it needs to do the job of attracting new ones as well.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngDo you have a tagline?

You wouldn’t necessarily need to include the tagline with the logo, but if you have an established tagline, it can certainly help establish the tone that you want to convey with your logo.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngWhat is your company’s personality?

Are you laid back and fun or do you want to be known as extremely professional?  You need to establish the tone that you want to convey with your logo before you design it.  You also need to take into consideration your industry as well.  You may very well run a fun, laid back business, but if you work in a very serious industry, your logo probably needs to be more on the straight-laced side.  Think about where your company would fall on the spectrum of these descriptors:

  • Friendly or Professional
  • High energy or Extremely thorough
  • Modern or Traditional
  • Cutting edge or Established
  • Fun or Serious
  • Accessible or High end

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngWhat makes your company unique?

Do you know what makes your company different from everyone else in the marketplace?  Your logo can be an excellent place to showcase what makes you unique.  Do you have new technology that your competitors just can’t compete with?  Think about a sleek, modern, techy logo.  Are you one of the few family-owned and operated business left in your vertical?  Give your logo a warm, down to earth feel.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngWho are your target customers?

Knowing who your target customers are is of critical importance not just when designing a logo, but it’s also critical for the success of your business.  Your logo design would vary widely depending on who you are targeting.  For example, if your target demographic is mothers over the age of 30, you’d have a very different logo than if your target demographic was male golfers over 50.  Your color scheme, your fonts and the overall look should all be designed with your ideal customer in mind.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngWho are your primary competitors?

Before you design your own logo, take a hard look at what your competitors are already doing.  Make some notes on what you like and dislike about each one and then use that information to help you design a better logo.  Some of the best inspiration comes when you find things that you don’t like, so don’t be afraid to be critical.  This step will also help ensure that you have a truly unique logo and not just another carbon copy of your closest competitor.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngAre there any specific colors that you want to use?

Do you have any brand colors that are already being used?  Are there colors that would help link you more closely with your industry?  Which colors do you definitely want to stay away from?  Forming some ideas about your logo colors before you start will help narrow down your options and cut back on the design time.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngAre there any specific images that you want to use?

You definitely want to stay away from using any photo-realistic images in your logo, but it’s perfectly acceptable to incorporate shapes or images that make sense for your industry.  Think trees or flowers for a landscaping company or decorated cakes for a bakery.  For some companies, using an image in the logo makes a lot of sense, while for others, it may not.  Just think it through before you start the design process.

a1sx2_Checkbox_thumb2_check_box.pngWhere will your logo be used?

The common-sense answer to this would be “everywhere”, but if there are some really important places (like a storefront) that your logo will be used, you may want to think about optimizing your logo for that specific space.


If you do it right and put a little time in at the start to really think about your business and your logo, it should make the process of designing a logo for you business a whole lot less daunting!

Circular Text

Rotating the entire selected text around a pivot point, from -360 to 0 degrees for text that dips below the pivot point, or from 0 to 360 degrees for text that curves above the pivot point.

In Logo Design Studio, circular text can be used to wrap an object, create a text-based object effect or any other eye-catching visual representation your imagination can come up with:

Export

Sending a file from the current application to another application in an image format, including JPEG, TIFF, BMP, GIF, Transparent GIF, PNG, Transparent PNG and PDF.

In Logo Design Studio, you can export your logo in the following formats:

Web use – JPEG, PNG, Transparent PNG, GIF, Transparent GIF.

Print use – JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, Transparent PNG, PDF (standard format for most print shops).

Document use – JPEG, EMF, WMF, BMP, PDF, ICO (a desktop icon format).

Hue, Saturation, and Lightness

Adjusts all colors in an object/image and changes their strength and lightness.

Hue – shifts all pixels in an image around the color wheel to a different point. For example, if you change the red pixels to green, the green pixels turn to blue and the yellow pixels turn to cyan.

Saturation – adjusts the amount of grey in a color. The level of grey increases as the saturation decreases.

Lightness – adjusts the color’s brightness.

In Logo Design Studio, the best way to change the color of an included graphic object is to use the Hue, Saturation & Lightness sliders:

Opacity

Changing a selected object or text from a default of 100 percent (fully opaque) down to 0 percent (fully transparent) on the logo canvas. When a layer is partially transparent, layers below it show through.

In Logo Design Studio, you can use opacity to create a reflective or mirrored effect, show off the depth of your logo, make layers beneath objects or text visible, or simply make objects or text more subtle:

Outline Text

Creating a default outline effect around the edges of a selected object or text. The outline is drawn “over” the selected object or text (i.e., the outline is always on top, and doesn’t influence the position or size of the object or text).

Using a text outline in Logo Design Studio makes text more noticeable and visually creates a framework when placing an image inside text:

Save

A function that allows you to save your logo project in a file format (.lds) that can be opened and changed at a later time within Logo Design Studio.

When you save your logo in Logo Design Studio, the program saves it in two formats:

1) A file with a .lds ending (this is your logo project that you can change or modify at a later time)

2) A file with a .png ending (this is a thumbnail picture of your logo that is generated so you can view your logo projects in a preview browser window inside the program).

Service Mark

A word, name, symbol or device that is to indicate the source of the services and to distinguish them from the services of others. A service mark is the same as a trademark except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product. The terms “trademark” and “mark” are often used to refer to both trademarks and service marks.

In Logo Design Studio, the service mark symbol is located under the Objects subcategory called Signs & Symbols:

Slogan and Tagline

Text that communicates a message.

Tagline – expresses the essence of a product, service, business or brand name. Taglines should rarely be changed or altered in order to maintain a familiar message.

Slogan – usually associated with promotional campaigns, and is meant to express the core message of the campaign. A slogan can either change, or disappear entirely, as soon as the campaign ends.

Logo Design Studio includes a resource library of general slogans and taglines that you can use as a framework to form your own unique message:

Trademark

Protects words, names, symbols, sounds, or colors that distinguish goods and services from those manufactured or sold by others and to indicate the source of the goods.

The Registered Trademark (®) designation is reserved to indicate that the mark is federally registered. This symbol should not be used under any circumstances until a federal registration has issued on the mark

In Logo Design Studio, the trademark and registered trademark symbols are located under the Objects subcategory called Signs & Symbols:

Vector vs Raster

Vector Design
Using a vector drawing or illustration software application when designing a logo or graphic design allows you to easily use your design for any online or print project. Vector designs are not limited to a specific size because they are made up of connected lines and curves, rather than a collection of pixels that make up raster designs. Vector is essentially a mathematical “connect the dots” approach to design, where the dots are adjustable “nodes” that allow you to easily edit how your vector design looks. Since vector designs are defined by math rather than pixels, they can be scaled smaller than a postage stamp to larger than a billboard, without losing any quality. Vector formats generally include EPS, AI, WMF, EMF, SVG and even PDF (if the PDF supports vector).

Raster Design
Raster based designs are made up of a collection of pixels, square dots that are assigned a color value. These collections of pixels all come together in a grid-like pattern to make up an image. Digital pictures are the most common raster based images. The resolution of a raster image is given in terms of “dots per inch” (dpi). Most office printer support up to 300 or 600 dpi, and professional printers can support over 2,500 dpi. Raster image designs are great for online or small print projects, but are limited to how big they can be printed since they are based on square pixels rather than lines and curves. If you try to increase the size of the raster image to the size of a billboard, for example, the design will become fuzzy and out-of-focus. Raster formats generally include BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, PDF and PSD.

Bézier

In vector based software applications, Bézier curves are an important tool used to create smooth curves that can be scaled to any size, big or small. When creating shapes and complex lines, multiple Bézier curves make up “paths”. Paths are not bound by the limits of rasterized images and are easy to edit by adjusting the nodes that make up the paths.

How to create enticing restaurant logos

Some of the world’s most effective logos belong to restaurants. Almost everyone knows that the golden arches forming the letter “M” stands for McDonald’s and that Colonel Sanders is a KFC trademark.

So what does it take to follow in their footsteps? For starters, you need a memorable and recognizable design that people will instantly associate with your brand.

While there isn’t a single recipe for success that you base your logo on, there are some approaches that have proven to work. It’s just a matter of finding the perfect fit for your company.

One option is to come up with a distinct symbol or an original character to represent a facet of your business. Get creative and think outside of the box. You need something that is inviting and appealing. It also helps if the graphics look crisp and fresh.

You can build your logo around the type of food you serve as well. Case in point: A seafood restaurant’s logo can feature an image of a fish, prawn or clam, a diner that whips up mostly pork dishes may want to incorporate a pig illustration, and a bakery could showcase artwork depicting a cake or loaf of bread.

If you offer regional dishes, do try to convey this in one or two of the logo’s visual elements. You can, for instance, follow the color scheme of the flag of your cuisine’s country of origin. If you run a Greek restaurant, consider using blue and white in your logo’s imagery or typography. Shades of red and yellow would suit Chinese establishments, while a combination of red, blue and white can help make Thai eateries more recognizable. Specialize in Italian fare? It pays to incorporate green, red and white in your bistro’s logo design.

In case you prefer a graphics-oriented logo, the ethnic roots of your dishes can be represented by things that instantly come to mind when you think of that country. Mexican restaurants, for instance, can opt for images of a sombrero, cactus, chili or pair of maracas—all of which easily reminds customers of Mexico.

Another way to reach out to the public is to give them a peek into your restaurant’s atmosphere. Think hearts and candles plus an elegant font, if you offer a romantic fine-dining experience. For steakhouses, food trucks and other casual-dining spots, go with light or fun images and heavy or simple typefaces.

Just remember that along with a visually striking look, you need a concept and design that paints a clear picture of what your customers can expect from your establishment.

Logo design tips for businesses catering to pets and animals

Businesses offering products and services related to pets or animals know all too well how important it is to connect with clients, most of whom share a deep and special bond with their beloved daily companions. And creating a memorable, striking unique and relatable logo is a key step in achieving that. After all, your logo will be your visual identity. It will grace everything from your shop’s signage and ads to the business cards you give out and the goods you sell (if they’re marketed under your own brand).

You can begin by picking a theme that reflects your brand’s personality or focus. Do you want to emphasize just how much you love animals? Would you like to bring attention to the quality of care you provide? Are you keener on building an image of reliability and trustworthiness? Or is demonstrating your sensitivity and empathy to pet owners your top priority? Remember the goal is not just to catch the eye of potential clients but also to draw them in, whether you are veterinarian or dog groomer, run a pet store, and offer pet sitting or dog walking services.

Once you have that covered, consider the visual elements you would like to feature in your logo. Think about what color scheme, imagery, and typeface can best represent your company.

Let’s talk graphics, for instance. If you’re a pet groomer, you could incorporate icons denoting the tools of the trade (e.g., comb, brush, pair of scissors, blower or dryer, bottle of shampoo). You can also showcase an animal or two in the design. Do you cater primarily to dogs? Is cat grooming your specialty? Or are you known for accommodating unique or exotic pets? Do try to highlight your expertise with a cool, creative and clever illustration. Keep in mind that it doesn’t necessarily have to depict an animal. Using pet-related graphics such as a dog house, food bowl or paw would work too.

For a more distinct look, you could opt for animals that convey your core values or mission as a company. A wolf outline, bull silhouette or eagle icon can help portray strength, fierceness and power. Graphics depicting horses embody elegance, while those of rabbits evoke fun and pleasant feelings.

Whichever route you decide to take, just make sure your final logo design fits and suits your business and brand.

How to win clients over with a great travel and tourism logo

Businesses in the travel and tourism industry thrive on impressing clients. Whether you run a hotel, bed and breakfast, tour-guide company or travel agency, a unique, striking, memorable and professional-looking logo can help you win their trust and confidence.

To successfully make an impact, you need to evoke positive feelings with your logo. It should convey warmth and friendliness. It must be interesting, personable and vibrant.

Also find a way to communicate the type of service you provide and to show would-be clients that they can completely rely on your company. Rememberyour logo is your ticket to standing out from your competitors. A well-designed one just might give you that edge you’ve long been seeking.

So what makes a great logo design? While there’s no single template that will work for every business, here are some tips that can help. If you have an icon-based logo in mind, consider travel-related graphics such as airplanes and globes or related symbols that reflect the field’s dynamism such as circles and swooshes.

You could also turn the focus on the country or site you’re operating in. Say your hotel is located in an area near deserts, a brown or black color scheme for your imagery or typography might work. If your travel agency arranges flight and hotel bookings in places known for their stunning beaches like Malaysia and the Maldives, shades of blue, green or yellow would suit your business.

Selecting an appropriate font is also key in communicating what clients can expect from your service. Have a casual and rustic bed and breakfast? Stick to light and fun typefaces. Cater primarily to the business sector? Opt for formal or classic styles. Known in the hotel industry for your luxurious accommodations and amenities? Make sure your choice of font is just as elegant.

Keep in mind that your logo forms your visual identity. It’s one of the first things customers will base their impressions on. And it’s one of the many details they will remember your services by. By taking the time to craft a logo that sufficiently and creatively represents your business, you can definitely expand your clientele.

A peek into design guidelines for stunning wedding logos

With all the services offered in the wedding industry, a logo is one of the ways you can make your mark and set your business apart. So whether you’re a wedding planner, wedding coordinator, cake decorator, wedding DJ, wedding photographer or relationship counselor, creating an impressive logo design can help you build your reputation and expand your clientele.

When you start conceptualizing your logo, think of how you can convey your ideology or highlight your expertise in the visual elements you’ll be incorporating.

With colors, for instance, it’s important to take note of the feelings that they will evoke. Red embodies energy, excitement and warmth, a great option for matchmakers and musicians. Event coordinators can benefit from using yellow, which represents confidence, friendliness and optimism. If you run an elegant bridal shop, black along with violet would be a sophisticated and glamorous choice.

Other colors commonly seen in wedding industry logos are orange, as this reminds people of passion, warmth and comfort, and pink, known to signify femininity and tranquility.

In terms of typography, opt for one that not only complements your design theme but also represents your services. A sans-serif typeface suits companies that specialize in modern weddings or offer fresh and contemporary solutions. Script and calligraphy-based fonts are perfect for businesses that are more traditional in their approach or would like to draw attention to their experience in catering to classic and elegant weddings. You can also opt for funky or decorative styles, if clients can expect a lot of whimsy and creativity from your company. Just don’t go for anything that’s too quirky.

Plan on adding a short and clever tag line to your logo? Then you can adopt two complementary typefaces. Both should be legible at any size.

Yes, scalability matters too. Remember that your logo will appear on a variety of media. So each visual element should print clearly and be recognizable whether your logo is shown on an ad, business card and signage or as an icon on your website.

Whichever colors, fonts or images you go for, make sure everything comes together seamlessly. The overall look and feel of your logo will shape how your clients and competitors perceive your business and in turn can poise you for success.

Bar & Nightclub Logo Ideas

How to Create an Amazing Bar or Nightclub Logo

Bar and nightclub customers go out looking for hip and exciting spots. If you want to draw them in, a logo that exudes a cool and fun vibe is a good place to start.

But your logo design should be more than just inviting and appealing. It also needs to reflect the ambiance of your pub or nightclub, giving guests a feel of the kind of atmosphere they can expect when they walk through your doors.

Think back to your original concept or theme for the place and the branding you’re going for. Style your logo accordingly. Say you’re running a lounge. Then your logo should lean toward elegant and serious rather than bold and playful. If you’re a cigar bar owner, consider more masculine-looking designs. Have a comedy club? Make sure your logo appears personable and colorful, and steer clear of anything too formal or conservative.

It’s also important to match your logo design with your pub’s look and target market. Does your place have a traditional or modern design? Are your offerings more economical or upscale?

Then there’s deciding on whether you want to use an icon, emblem or character; your nightclub’s name and slogan; or a combination of image and text. Adding your company name to the logo is an effective way of literally putting your name out there. If you have a short and catchy slogan that you want to promote, you may include that too.

Incorporating images can help attract attention and get your message across. Think a martini glass for nightclubs, a football or basketball for sports bars, a food-related icon for gastropubs and various kinds of fruit for juice bars. You can also take a more conceptual, symbolic or abstract approach with the illustrations, just ensure it’s relatable and can be easily associated with your brand.

As for the color scheme, pick out one that complements the logo design and reinforces your theme or message. With gay bars, for instance, you could use the colors of the rainbow, as seen on the LGBT community’s rainbow flag. For emphasis or a unique touch, effects that add drop shadows or gloss might work as well.

Of course, don’t forget to factor in how and where you’ll be using the logo—on printed materials, on the web, on staff uniforms, etc. With a well-thought-out and striking design, your logo can help jazz up your business.

Consultant Logo Ideas

Consulting Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create an Amazing Consultant Logo

Logos for business and consulting firms must be nothing short of corporate-looking. Chances are the more professional your logo design feels, the more confident clients will feel about your service.

Marketing consultants may cater to different industries, but they all want to be recognized as competent and experienced enterprises that can be fully trusted and relied on. The key is to ensure that clients know they are in good hands. And yes, your choice of logo will help you create and reinforce that image.

So if you are determined to leave a strong impression, build a solid reputation and continually expand your client base, do dedicate time, energy and resources to your logo design.

Start with an effective concept. As a business consultant, you will want to portray a sense of boldness and seriousness but also demonstrate your creativeness and resourcefulness when it comes to problem solving. One way to get this across is in the type of image or icon you choose to incorporate in the design. So think outside the box. Don’t be predictable. Avoid classic and clichéd illustrations.

After picking out a symbol that best represents your brand of service, it’s time to decide on the text that will appear alongside it. It’s rare to find a logo in this field that features just an emblem. Instead, designs that combine images and text are more popular, as they let you emphasize your expertise as a business coach.

Adding your company name is therefore recommended. As with the artwork, this requires careful thought and consideration. The “look” of the text—the font style you select—will have an impact on the logo’s overall feel.

In this case, classic fonts are a safe bet. They exude professionalism and can help remind clients of your extensive experience or history. Plus, they are more likely to complement your emblem.

Don’t forget about the color scheme. Yes, that counts too. Stick to just two or three colors. Anything more might make your logo look too playful. Unless you’re willing to take a risk, you might be better off with colors traditionally used in the industry: blue, green, orange and red.

Creating a logo can be a tough job, but a well-crafted one can surely help you grow your business.

Church & Religious Logo Ideas

Church and Religious Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create an Amazing Church or Religious Logo

Even religious sectors need and benefit from effective branding. Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Protestant, Lutheran, Methodist or Baptist, building and communicating your identity is an important initiative. And the foundation for this rests in large part on your logo.

The logo of your church, ministry, mosque or temple represents your service and your congregation. It reflects your mission, motto and beliefs. So think carefully about the tone and content of your logo’s design. Remember every detail counts.

First, let’s talk imagery. Church and religious logos almost always feature a visual element—a symbol that captures your philosophy and orthodoxy. Just because your name has the word “hill” in it, doesn’t mean the design has to include a picture of a hill. Just because it’s for a Christian church, it doesn’t mean a cross is absolutely necessary. It doesn’t have to be explicit. As long as your emblem tells something about your story and fits what you are as a religious sector, you’ll be good.

Besides standard icons such as the cross or any religious building, you can incorporate a globe, wheat or perhaps an open bible or Quran. Shapes can also be combined, arranged or stylized in certain ways to get your message across. The bottom line: the artwork you choose should provide a brief but accurate snapshot of your religious sector.

Of course, the more eye-catching and unique your logo design is, the easier it will be remembered and associated with your name. This is why your choice of colors is critical too, along with the font and size of the text you choose. Both elements need to complement if not blend seamlessly with your emblem, making your whole design stand out.

Finally, do consider how your logo will look like when it is reproduced in different sizes. Yes, it should be identifiable whether you’re adding it to the signageat the front of your office, as an icon on your website, or to your official business cards, letterheads and envelopes.

With a well-thought-out logo, you’ll be able to more easily establish your identity, reach out to more people and share your message and goals.

Construction Logo Ideas

Construction Logo Design


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create an Amazing Construction Logo

A strong and stable foundation is just as critical in building houses as it is in building your identity as a construction firm. And for the latter, that means having a logo that successfully represents your brand.

Why does logo design matter? Whether you’re a home builder or commercial builder, you need to stand out from your rivals. You need to project an image of confidence, professionalism and trustworthiness. You need to connect with and draw in clients. With a well-crafted, memorable and appropriate logo, you’ll be able to cover all that.

Start by selecting an image that fits your service. Think tools of the trade—the ones that are readily associated with your line of work. Depending on your choice, you can effectively highlight your expertise such as home renovation or civil engineering and distinguish your firm from general contractors. Just make sure the symbol you choose isn’t being used by another business in your community (or at least pick a version that does not look similar). You can also include a non-construction-related picture, if this will make it easier for clients to recall your name. Say your company is called “Eagle Construction”. By adding an illustration of an eagle, your logo becomes more identifiable and recognizable.

In terms of color scheme, go with formal and bold colors that have something to do with your service. Brown, black, white, red and magenta, for instance, remind people of buildings made of bricks and would be great for home and commercial builders. Orange and yellow are reminiscent of safety gear, while green and blue suit those focusing on environment-friendly solutions.

Two or three colors will do. Using too many might make your logo look unprofessional and your business unreliable—which is the last thing you want if your goal is to convey a sense of stability and security. Plus, the fewer colors your logo has, the better it will print in black-and-white ads in the paper. Again, check to see if there is no other company in your area that has a logo in the same color combination as yours. If you find one, modify your color palette so clients don’t confuse the two of you.

As for wording, it’s best to include your company name. You can make room for a short slogan or tagline too if you wish. Just stick to simple and easy-to-read Serifs or Sans Serif fonts such as Cambrian, Eras and Gill Sans.And for more emphasis, you could set the text in bold typeface.

Whether you are a construction firm offering a host of services or specializing in areas like concrete works, plumbing or electrician support, creating the perfect logo can help you expand your clientele and bolster your business.

Craft Business Logo Ideas

Craft Business Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to create a successful logo for your craft or homemade business

Creativity is the name of the game when it comes to homemade and craft items. Your logo should reflect that, along with specific aspects of your business such as your core values, mission or expertise.

You also need a logo that’s distinct, eye-catching and memorable. There’s a host of similar stores out there, so having a visual identity all your own can help you stand out and attract clients, particularly in online platforms like Etsy.

Because of the impact it can have on your company, you must have a solid concept and design for your logo. Look at how successful companies in the industry went about it and see if you can adopt a strategy similar to theirs. Also do a quick review of your competitors’ logos to get a general picture of what has already been done. Just remember that there’s no single or correct approach for everyone. The challenge is in finding a solution that works perfectly for your business.

When you begin brainstorming for your logo, consider the individual components and then think of how they’ll blend together in a design that represents your company’s personality.

Your color selection, for one, can help shape how your customers feel about or perceive your brand. A sophisticated home decor store can benefit a lot from a simple and clean black-and-white logo, as both colors denote elegance and efficiency. If you specialize in paper goods such as stationery items and posters, using green can help convey awareness and harmony. Want to highlight your expertise in activities such as woodworking? Consider bright colors like orange, which represents passion and fun.

Just as important is your choice of typeface, as this plays a key role in getting your message across, especially if you plan on incorporating a tag line along with your business name. A light, airy script font feels elegant yet fun and creative, great for those offering jewelry pieces and crochet and knit products. A bold and heavy serif typeface embodies tradition, respectability and stability, making it suitable for longstanding businesses that specialize in handmade home décor like ceramic vases. But if you want to emphasize your contemporary aesthetic, choose a clean and modern sans serif style.

Each visual element in your logo can influence your logo’s overall look and feel, so take the time to think about which colors, typefaces and symbols, if any, would work best in your design.

Art Gallery and Design Logo Ideas

Art and Graphic Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create a Visually Striking Art and Design Logo

If you’re an artist or an owner of an art and design company, your logo does more than reflect your business’ brand and identity. It’s what appears on the first page of your portfolio. It’s what clients see before they even get a glimpse of your work. So you need a logo that makes a great impression and reflects the range of your artistic expertise and your strongest assets.

But of course, your logo design should still meet the basic principles—simple but catchy, easy to recognize, and relevant to the services you’re offering. Don’t fall into the trap of creating art logos that are too complex and intricate.

With colors, for instance, better stick to just one or two. Three colors can be too distracting for a logo. And remember the more colors you use, the more expensive it will be to have your logo printed. So keep the design minimal and choose visual elements carefully. Limit your selection to those that will leave an impact and can easily be remembered by your clients.

When it comes to ensuring your logo’s relevance, incorporate elements that will distinguish your services from other artists or art companies. For example, if you’re a web designer or graphic designer, the tone of your logo can be established using technological or digital icons. If you’re an interior decorator, your logo design may include a house. If you’re a craftsman—say an owner of a pottery business—it would be great to integrate a simplified version or symbol of the crafts that you’re offering.

The logo should also convey a professional tone. The line between artistic expression and professionalism can be blurry at times, but your logo needs to assure clients that you’re serious about your craft.

Moreover, your logo must be unique enough to stand out. As there are many art and design firms out there, and many artists that offer similar services, you need to catch people’s attention and be noticed. That and keeping the logo simple can be quite tricky, but it’s not something a professional and talented logo designer can’t pull off.

Beauty and Cosmetic Logo Ideas

{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


Features of Stunning Beauty and Cosmetic Logos

Businesses that offer cosmetics, makeup, and other beauty and skin products are big on aesthetics. The same can be said for beauty consultants, beauty salons and the like. That is why companies in the beauty and cosmetics industry are expected to have logos that are pleasing to the eye, and at the same time are stylish and professional-looking.

But a visually appealing logo won’t help you out much if it isn’t striking enough to be remembered. Your logo needs to linger in the minds of potential clients long enough for them to readily associate it with your brand. Given the fierce competition in the beauty industry—yes, there are thousands out there with the same products and services as yours—you will be counting on your logo to help you stand out in the crowd and catch the attention of your target audience.

To do its job of getting your business recognized, your logo should be adaptable for printing on all sorts of media—business cards, brochures, stationery, posters, flyers, newspaper ads, and so on. This means the design has to be clear and clean, minus any intricate or unnecessary details. The color scheme must be limited to two to three colors. The other visual elements, such as imagery and typography, shouldn’t be too complex. And they need to come together smoothly in a layout that’s minimal but memorable.

Apart from this, the logo design should evoke an emotional response. In most cases, that would be a sense of calm and comfort. After all, people typically go to beauty salons to relax and feel revitalized. If your logo is too busy or distracting, they may not be drawn to drop by your shop. So make sure your logo looks smooth and feels inviting. And find a way to depict the kind of sanctuary your target clients are seeking.

It also pays to incorporate a symbol or icon that reflects the specific product or service that you’re offering—a pair of scissors or hair dryer for hair salons, nails for a nail spa, and a mirror or brush for makeup artists. This kind of imagery gives clients a peek into what you have in store for them.

Child Care Logo Ideas

A Guide to Crafting a Brilliant Child Care Logo

Can they be trusted? That’s the number one concern of parents looking for child care services. They won’t leave their precious little ones in the hands of another person unless they feel comfortable and confident about the level of care and guidance that will be provided.

A good place to start convincing and assuring your clients of the quality of your service would be your logo.

And we’re not talking about any ordinary logo. You need a design that conveys nurturing and reliability. It should evoke feelings of warmth and friendliness. And it must reflect the caring and fun environment that your business fosters. What it should not do? Make parents worry even a tiny bit about the safety and welfare of their kids under your guardianship.

To ensure you get it right, stick to calm and soothing colors, plus soft and flowing lines. If you’ll be incorporating images or symbols, choose those that reflect acts of nurturing (e.g., intertwined hands) or playfulness (toy blocks or baby stuff toys). If you’ll be adding your business name, go for fonts that are clearly readable even from a far distance.

Another factor worth communicating in your logo is the age range of the kids you’re providing care for. Think footprints for baby care services, and rainbows or balloons for babysitting and nanny services catering to toddlers and preschoolers.

As for the color palette, it’s best to pick bright and cheerful hues that catch the eye. It will help attract the attention of not just moms and dads but their kids as well. Just make sure you don’t go beyond three colors. The more colors you use, the busier your logo gets. Plus, it will cost you more in printing anyway.

It also helps to keep the overall look of your logo clean and simple, whether you offer day care or babysitting services. Just don’t forget to add a personal touch or twist to the design so that it’s easy to recognize, remember and identify with your brand.

Finally, check to see if every aspect of your logo design is scaleable. Remember, your logo will be displayed on street signs, t-shirts, posters, flyers, business cards, billboards, sign boards and so on. Your logo should look good at any orientation and size.

Cleaning and Service Logo Ideas

Cleaning & Service Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


The Basics of Designing Cleaning and Service Logos

Whether your company offers carpet cleaning, housekeeping, HVAC maintenance, commercial cleaning or janitorial services, you need a well-designed and conceptualized logo that reflects your dependability and professionalism. It should also effectively do the job of distinguishing your business from the competition.

For years, word of mouth has been a reliable form of advertisement and publicity for companies in the cleaning and service industry. However, with the steady proliferation of cleaning services, it has become a necessity to build a unique brand for your business that not only represents your specific services but also your edge and expertise in this field. And all this is anchored on your logo design.

To ensure you achieve branding success, you must craft a logo that bears an appropriate symbol. Cleaning businesses usually incorporate any of the following graphics: bubbles, water droplets, spray bottles, vacuum cleaners, brooms, dusters, rags, mops or a maid’s uniform. If you’re a specialist in a particular field, try to also depict that in your logo, the same way a needle or spool of thread would suit a seamstress, a lock or key for a locksmith, and tools or a toolbox for a handyman.

Before you decide on an image to feature, however, it would be smart to look at what your competition is using. Then look the other way. You want something different—something that would make your cleaning service stand out and be recognized by potential clients.

And naturally, your logo needs to look “clean.” It goes without saying that a cleaning company’s logo should not be cluttered or distracting. Elements such as shapes, patterns and typography must to be kept to a minimum. Only stick to what feels essential. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a busy and complicated design that your clients will hardly remember.

The same is true for colors. Remember that your logo will grace a wide variety of materials. It should therefore print well in black and white or in color. White is often a good choice as it embodies purity and cleanliness. Green is another option, particularly if your company is geared towards environmentally friendly cleaning services. But steer clear of colors associated with dirt such as brown, yellow, gray and black.

With careful thought and consideration, the design elements you select can form a winning logo that will help propel your business.

Food and Drink Logo Ideas

Food & Drink Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


Key Ingredients of Great Food and Drink Logos

Logos are key in the branding efforts of restaurants, caterers, food trucks, wineries, bakeries and other entrepreneurs in the food and drinks business. It’s what shapes their visual identity and you’ll spot it everywhere from their signage and menu to the packaging of the treats they offer.

Those without storefront locations—such as caterers working in commissary kitchens or private venues and entrepreneurs selling chocolates, cakes, cupcakes and other baked goods from home—particularly rely on their logos to increase their visibility and advertise their offerings.

To ensure your logo helps kick off your marketing initiatives, carefully consider all the visual elements that you plan to include.

Using symbols is an effective way to establish brand recognition. Common icons like a chef’s hat, cooking pot, plate, knife and fork are tried-and-tested. But because they’re generic images, they tend to be overused. For a fresh and one-of-a-kind design, step out of the box and try something new.

This is where highlighting the nature of your service comes handy. For example, if you’re running a winery that stocks international wine and liquor, a globe would be an apt image. If you put together gift baskets featuring gourmet vegetarian eats, use leafy greens or a bright red tomato to portray this aspect of your business.

Perhaps you want to shift the focus from your offerings, say coffee or craft beer, to your business name. Then make the text eye-catching by playing with creative typography.

And let’s not forget about color psychology. It would be wise to incorporate principles of color psychology in your logo design. The most appetizing colors include red, orange, and green. Neutral hues are also said to effectively stimulate one’s appetite. Note that blue and purple are on the other end of the spectrum, so they’re seldom used in food-related logos.

Speaking of colors, it’s best to avoid complicated color schemes. At most, make use of two colors. Multiple colors can be too distracting, and that’s the last thing you want.

Finally, your logo can include a catchy tagline. Many successful food and drink businesses make room for a powerful one-liner. Some examples are: The Best BBQ In Town, Fun and Fresh Food All The Time, and The Best Things in Life are Desserts.

Once you’ve covered all these elements, you can whip up a logo that will help you get ahead.

A Snapshot of What Makes a Great Phogography Logo

Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, a logo says a lot about the photography business behind it. It reflects your style and expertise. It highlights what makes you different from the other photographers out there. And it shows how committed you are to every aspect of your trade.

So whether you’re embarking on a new venture or giving your existing brand a makeover, you need to put a lot of thought (and time and effort) into your logo design. It’s bound to be a complex and tricky process, but your final logo could have an impact on a potential client’s decision to work or not work with you.

Generally, photography logos should be fresh, creative, cool and vibrant. It’s a very visual field, so your audience expects nothing short of an appealing and inspired design.

But it’s not just looks that matter. Your logo should also be representative of your service and visual aesthetic. So if you specialize in edgy commercial photography or classic wedding photography, make sure this is conveyed in the elements of your logo. Say you’ve decided to make your name the focal point. You could experiment with the font style and color to demonstrate your bold style or stick with simple or vintage typeface to echo your traditional approach.

When it comes to graphics, typical choices include cameras, film reels and tripods. If you opt for the camera but would like to set your design apart, you could concentrate on just one component (e.g., frame, lens, shutter, viewfinder) and add a unique spin to it. To paint a clearer picture of your business, you may also want to add symbols or icons like that of a house, building or roof for companies concentrating on real estate photography and of certain animals for those who are geared toward pet photography.

Another way to add interest is to make creative use of white space in your logo design. Or you could select a bright or muted color palette to bring everything together. Case in point: Businesses who focus on child photography may incorporate vibrant neon colors, while those in the newborn photography field can play with subdued hues.

Just remember that balance is key. Every element of your logo should blend seamlessly the same way the elements of your photos do.

Factors to Consider When Designing Real Estate Logos

Businesses engaged in real estate and home sales know firsthand how important marketing is and how crucial of a role one’s brand plays in this. And often, it all begins with your visual identity—your logo.

But not just any logo will do. You need one that looks sleek and polished, that communicates your credibility, professionalism and trustworthiness. At the same time, it has to feel warm or friendly, something clients can connect to. Of course, it has to be distinct and personalized—true to your expertise and philosophy, and not similar to the logos of any of your competitors.

To achieve all these, think carefully about the type and style of the elements you’ll be featuring in your logo. Visually, for instance, you may want to steer clear of clichés such as images of buildings, houses and roofs. Chances are many if not most of your rivals are using such graphics in their logos.

What are your alternatives? Play around with geometric forms or patterns featuring boxes, rectangles, triangles or pyramids. They can be modified or combined to create a unique symbol that represents your services. Or you could incorporate house-related icons that are not as frequently used like picket fences, stone pillars, trees, keys and locks. Depending on your specialization, you could also add imagery pertaining to your line of work, such as documents or a handshake for mortgage brokers, a camera for those focused on real estate photography, and tools for home inspection experts.

Should you stick with houses and buildings, try to personalize the clip art or come up with an abstract or stylized version that reflects your expertise, which would work great if you’re a home stager or house flipper. Just think outside the box.

In terms of typography, decide on whether you’d like to use your company name or just the abbreviation or initials then pick an appropriate font. Most real estate agents go for classic serif fonts set in bold, although some businesses based in dynamic cities like Las Vegas and Hollywood have pulled off fancy or playful typefaces.

Then there’s color choice. Opt for two or three that echo your company’s personality. If your longstanding history and traditional approach are your strongest assets, blue, black, brown, gray, gold and silver are among your options. If you’d like to highlight your unconventional but equally effective strategies, you can get away with bold and bright colors such as purple, red, orange and yellow.

Yes, there’s a lot of evaluating and decision-making involved in crafting the perfect logo for real estate and home sales. But it’s all worth it, as a well-designed logo can truly transform your business.

A Rundown of Retail Logo Essentials

Regardless of product line, target audience, industry experience and business approach, an effective logo can help build brand recognition and boost sales for any retail business. With the sheer number of retail stores out there, you need to stand out in every way you can. You need to draw in customers. And you need to find a way to keep them coming back.

To be able to do just that, you must make every little detail count, including your logo. So put some serious thought into your logo. Make sure it’s designed well enough to be memorable and recognizable. It should look professional and fresh (nothing that reminds you of another brand). And it has to be representative of your business—your selection, specialization, unique selling point, philosophy or mission.

For starters, you need to decide on your logo’s key elements. Many companies, for instance, include if not showcase their names on their logos. Think GAP, Sears and Staples. They went with simple and legible fonts such as Helvetica and Arial and successfully designed their logo around their business name. For some oomph, you can set the text in bold or perhaps incorporate a clever tag line.

Then there’s the question of using a symbol or not. As Target has proven, having a symbol that people can readily associate with your brand works. And it doesn’t have to be a shopping cart and bag or any of your usual suspects. Say you operate a gift shop or consignment shop. You could opt for a striking image that embodies your vision or ideology.

Of course, you can always stick to graphics that depict your offerings, especially if you specialize in a particular product line. You can feature icons of sporting goods or hardware, if that’s what makes up the bulk of your selection. The same goes if you’re running a flower shop, bike shop, comic book shop, hemp shop or vapes shop. Just spruce things up or add some visual interest by using a stylized or modern version of your preferred icon.

Colors are worth considering too, as they can influence consumer behavior. If you want to convey your clothing store’s comfortable and calm atmosphere, incorporate inviting warm colors like orange and brown or cool colors such as green and blue. Or if you want an attention-grabbing logo for your technology store, then play with yellow, red and other bright colors.

Above all, try to think outside the box. Your logo design is a valuable opportunity to make your retail business shine. Make the most out of it.
