Creating a logo for a landscape company

Tips & Ideas for Landscape Company Logos


Rubin LandscapeCreating a great logo for your landscape company is one of the most important things you can do to build a lasting brand and grow your business.  Whether you’re just starting out, or you have a landscape company that has been around for decades, your logo is a critical part of your company’s identity and it’s important that it showcases your business in the best possible way.  After all, a good logo has the power to attract and retain new customers while an ugly logo can easily turn people off.

In the garden and landscape business, you’re selling a service.  Homeowners and local businesses hire you to help improve the curb appeal of their homes and establishments.  So your logo needs to not only represent your company, but keep in mind that your landscape company logo will also reflect the qualities of the people who hire you and choose to work with you.  To that end, you need to have a good understanding of your target market before you start the design process.  Are you going to be an accessable and affordable option for homeowners who need some help or are you going to cater to a high-end clientele.  How you answer that question will directly impact the design of your company logo.

You also need to have a firm idea of your brand personality before you create a logo.  Check out our free Brand Personality Quiz – it only takes a few minutes and will help steer you in the right direction as you create a logo for your landscape company.  

Color Ideas for Landscape Company Logos

 

Color-graphicOn the surface, when you first think about logo colors for a landscape company, your first thought is probably, “Ok, let’s make it green!”  And the thing is that green really does work very well for this industry.  Not only does it tie in perfectly with the idea of nature and lawncare, but it also evokes a feeling of growth and health.  That being said, there are a lot of other colors in the spectrum, so here are some other ideas for great colors in a landscape logo to get you going:

 [icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Green is the go-to color for landscape company logos. When in doubt, green will almost always work.

 [icon name=icon-ok][/icon]Try incorporating multiple shades of green to add depth.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Don’t shy away from bright sunny colors like orange and yellow – they’ll help give your logo an upbeat, accessible feel

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For a high-end, streamlined look plain black and white works great even for landscape companies

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Use several shades of the same color, which gives a rich, lustrous appearance

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Try pairing various shades of green with brown or a deep red for a rich, natural feel

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Using blue to help accent your company name or different parts of your logo will help evoke the feel of a strong, loyal landscape company

Image Ideas for Landscape Company Logos

 

Landscape-Image-graphic

One of the great things about creating a logo for a landscape company is that you have an almost endless supply of images that all work extremely well.  There are so many images that tie directly to your industry that the hardest part will probably be honing in on just the right image.  Also, keep in mind that logo images carry a lot of brand personality so even if you choose a tree to represent your company, make sure the design of that tree reflects your landscape company. 

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Let nature be your guide.  Trees, leaves, grass and flowers all make wonderful logo images

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] If you focus on residential landscaping, help drive that point across by including a home with trees or a yard in your logo

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Don’t be afraid to go with an abstract design if your landscape company is a little more youthful and modern.  A simple circle or swoosh can work very well for the right company.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Most landscape companies are local and showcase your local pride by pulling in a local monument, your state outline or anything else that helps tie your homebase to your logo

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For an understated look, you can always go with a simple monogram or your company name.  This works particularly well for more traditional and high-end landscape logos.

Font Ideas for Landscape Logos

 

FontBall-graphic

Out of everything, the font you choose for your logo will convey the personality of your landscape company more than almost anything.  There is no right or wrong way to choose a font either – it’s something that you will likely have to play around with until you find the right fit.  That being said, there are definitely some font types that work better than others for landscape logos.  Here are a few tips and ideas:

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] The majority of landscape companies will want to be perceived as hard-working and stable.  A strong serif font similar to Times New Roman can help get that feeling across

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Stay away from casual handwriting fonts – they will make it more difficult for people to take your lawn and landscape services seriously

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Incorporating a sans-serif font similar to Arial into your landscape logo can help give your brand a high-energy, efficient feel

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] A formal script font can work for landscape companies who focus on very high-end clientele, but will be far too formal and exclusive-looking for most companies

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!

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

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.

Real Estate Logo Ideas

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.

Retail Logo Ideas

Retail Logo Design

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.

Architecture Logo Design

Architecture Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create an Amazing Architecture Logo

Architectural firms are identified by their logos just as much as they are associated with the structures they create. Your logo will appear on business cards, brochures, stationery, your website and social media accounts, and all kinds of promotional materials that your clients will come across with day in and day out. So it should reflect your design ethos, giving your customers a glimpse into the kind of visions your company brings to life.

Of course, your logo needs to be visually appealing and unique as well. Architecture is a creative and dynamic profession, thus company logos are expected to be inspired and ingenious. Many are a play on lines, measuring tools, buildings and other architectural elements. It also common for the logos to reflect the company’s commitment to specific solutions. Say your firm focuses on modern and innovative forms, then your logo must be edgy and fresh. If clean and straightforward spaces are your emphasis, stick to a minimalist design. Details matter too for those who are dedicated to using green and sustainable materials or economical and efficient methods. Your logos need to hint at, if not be symbolic of, your company’s approach.

Whatever theme you go with, remember that simplicity is key. The logo needs to appear clear and be easily recognizable in any size it is printed in or viewed onscreen and regardless of the color used.

An effective logo design can help your firm gain a foothold in the architectural industry. Once etched in the public’s mind, that image will be crucial in attracting more projects, building your brand and bolstering your reputation. The design and development of a company logo are therefore a crucial and worthy investment any architect can’t afford to skip.

As a first step, many architectural companies actually purchase a logo template and then customize it to capture the image they wish to convey. But you can always tap your team of visionaries to come up with a striking original design. The bottom line: If you want to end up with a masterpiece of a logo, you need to pour not just funds but also a lot of time and energy into the process of creating one. Don’t worry. It will pay off and aid in taking your business to new heights.

Attorney & Law Logo Design

Attorney and Law Firm Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create an Amazing Law Firm Logo

Attorneys’ and law firms’ judicial identity is shaped in part by their choice of logo. But this doesn’t mean traditional and conservative parties are stuck with plain and predictable images. What law firms and lawyers in this field actually need are well-crafted logos that, one, demonstrate how firmly established they are. Your logo may well be the first thing that a potential client lays eyes on, so you must create a solid and strong impression using a confident and thoughtful design. And that design should convey your expertise or the type and range of services you offer.

Another requirement is for your logo to be memorable—compelling and eye-catching enough to be remembered. Keep in mind that the design you pick will affect how successful your branding efforts turn out. The last thing you want is to forge a forgettable corporate identity. You need to have a steady presence if you want to attract high-profile jobs.

Finally, your logo must be unique. It should make you stand out and set you apart from your rivals. Do your homework and check out the logos of your competitors to get a general picture of what has already been done. Avoid using any of the same elements, fonts or themes. Try to make yours as personalized as you can.

Remember that people seeking legal aid are very particular and cautious about the parties they confide in. They are looking for an attorney they can trust—someone who is credible and reliable—to get them out of trouble and deliver the best possible outcome. And you can help convince them to hire you if you have a professional and impressive logo representing your services.

Your logo will grace your website, social media pages, letterheads, business cards, the signage in your office, and the advertisements posted online, in the paper or across town. So when creating your logo design, make sure to keep it serious and professional but not boring and bland. Striking the perfect balance can get your name out there, allowing you to expand your client base and build up your attorney/law firm business further.

{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create an Amazing Accounting or Financial Logo

The logo for your accounting firm is the visual representation of your company.  It’s often the first thing that potential clients interact with and it is your trustmark.  In that light, you want to make sure that your accounting logo sends the right message.  The good news is that with the right tools, almost anyone can create a logo for an accounting or financial firm that will stand the test of time.

The first thing you’ll want to think through is the tone or personality you want your accounting logo to convey.  Considering that you are working in a sensitive area and assisting people in making important financial decisions, an accounting or financial logo should convey the appearance of trust, authority and seriousness.  That doesn’t mean that your logo need be boring – it just means that there are certain logo design elements that you’ll want to steer clear of if you want to be perceived as a financial firm that a client can trust with his or her money.

You’ll also want to make sure you have a solid understanding of basic logo design principles.  Think about where your accounting logo or financial logo will be used.  Most likely, you’ll be using your logo on business cards, letterheads, envelopes, a website, email signature and possibly on an exterior door at your physical location.  To make sure that your accounting logo will look great in all these places, keep your design relatively simple and limit your font and color choices to no more than two.  A simple logo design will translate much easier to different surfaces and you can rest assured that your brand will have a consistent look and feel.

Sports Team Logo Ideas

Sports Team Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to Create a Winning Look for your Sports Team Logo

Sports logos are more than just visual representations of your team. Fans of the game wear their team’s logo with pride and to show their love for and allegiance to the team. Players wear them as badges of honor when they hit the court or field.

Because of this, you need a logo that not just represents your sports team but also captures the spirit of the game and resonates with its fans. You can keep it simple but striking or make it bold and colorful. Either way, it has to be memorable, recognizable and identifiable. Make sure it’s timeless too. Jumping on the current color or design trend might not be such a good idea 10 years later (case in point: neon colors).

Want to start on the right track? Here’s a breakdown of some elements than sports organizations need to consider when creating logos.

Think about what you want your team to signify. If it’s strength, then craft a logo that looks bold and powerful. If it’s energy, try to convey motion in your design. If it’s passion, go for vibrant visuals.

Then decide on the type of logo you want. Illustrative logos are particularly popular. With this, you can always showcase the symbol most widely associated with your team: your mascot. This strategy has worked great for the Seattle Seahawks football team, Toronto Blue Jays baseball team and Pittsburgh Penguins ice hockey team. Even if your team isn’t named after an animal, you can feature images of panthers, lions, sharks or other ferocious creatures to reflect your competitive nature. Another approach is to incorporate icons that relate to your sport (e.g., a football for fantasy football, a bat or home base for softball, a bowling ball or pins for bowling, a golf club, ball or tee for golf, a Frisbee for ultimate Frisbee). Or you could take into account your city and reflect that in your choice of graphics, as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Edmonton Oilers did.

If you want to avoid clichés, you can go with abstract logos. Just make sure your design still embodies your team and isn’t difficult to remember or distinguish.

Many have also found typography-based logos to be effective. Just take the initials of the team and creatively style and arrange the letters to come up with an interesting design. If your soccer team has a long history, serif fonts such as Times New Roman and Baskerville denote respect and tradition. If you volleyball team is known to be fierce, strong and modern sans serif typefaces are a suitable option.

Don’t forget about the role of colors too. You can highlight certain colors to evoke certain feelings such as yellow for confidence and dynamism, red for strength and masculinity, and black for control and excellence.

Together, all these aspects can help you achieve a winning logo for your team and company.

Logo Design for Events

The 411 on Designing Logos for Events

Events management is a fast-growing and exciting industry where a well-designed logo can help propel you ahead. So use your expertise in planning and organizing to craft a logo that will impress your clients and increase your visibility.

To make this happen, your company logo must look professional and confident. You need to show potential customers that they can completely trust and rely on and will be satisfied with your services. This is also your opportunity to project an image of consistency and excellence.

If you’re crafting specific logos, such as those used for charity events, the challenge is to create a logo that stands out and clearly communicates the nature or theme of the event. With an effective design, your logo can help draw attention to the event, boost participation and ensure its overall success.

But whether you need a logo to represent your services or an event, the same guidelines apply. You can use imagery to clearly illustrate the scope of your business or the goal of an event. Icons relating to parties and other celebrations are popular choices. If you specialize in weddings, you can opt for bells, rings, flowers, hearts or a couple’s silhouette. If you’ll beorganizing 5K runs, volleyball tournaments and other sporting events, related graphics can give attendees a sneak peek into what they can expect.

Abstract art will work as well. Just don’t go too far. Keep in mind that your logo has to be relatable and memorable. If people can’t quite figure out what your symbol is or what it has to do with your company, chances are they won’t be able to recall it.

You can also include your business name or a short tag line in the logo. If you are leaning toward a typography-based logo, choose a font that’s eye-catching but clear and readable at any size.

In terms of colors, you can play with bright and bold shades to reflect the industry’s dynamism. An exception would be for somber or formal events, where subdued hues are more appropriate.

Whichever design you choose, remember that a well-thought-out logo can help make your business more approachable and your event more accessible.

Education Logo Ideas

Education Logo Design

How to make an education logo that works

Logos are a must for any educational institution. It is part of their identity—the image they wish to project and promote or have already successfully established. And depending on the design, an effective logo can not only impress their target market but also set them apart from rivals.

This is why your education logo has to look confident, be positive and demonstrate what your school or class focuses on. It should reflect your commitment to excellence and learning. And it needs to be designed carefully with your audience in mind.

You can begin by picking a color scheme. Say you run a preschool or daycare center. Then the colors of your logo must be bright and suggest a playful and fun ambiance. So use red, yellow, royal blue, neon green or similar hues. Although toddlers and young children aren’t necessarily the decision-makers in this scenario, your design should still be kid-friendly.

Font style is another key design element. If you offer tutoring services or manage homeschool groups, opt for more basic and serious or subdued typefaces that reflect your dedication to helping students shine. Classic, sophisticated types would suit private schools with an extensive and prestigious history.

Including a symbol helps a lot too, especially with colleges and universities. In fact, higher educational institutions often rely solely on an emblem as their logo. This makes the selection or design process even more crucial.

For symbols, those that depict a scholarly image are your safest bet as they convey academic excellence. But keep the design traditional as a reminder of your longstanding history.You can also incorporate rectangles, rings and other shapes or forms commonly associated with education.

If you organize cooking classes, book clubs and craft classes, your logo can feature related icons. Graphics can give potential participants a glimpse into what they can expect from the sessions. Catering to kids? Include rainbow or sun illustrations, caricatures of children or books, or any fun and appealing artwork.

As you craft your logo, don’t forget to consider where you plan on using it. Will it look as great on pants and t-shirts as it will on letterheads, notebooks, posters and pens? Yes, the design should print or render well in any size.

It may seem like a lengthy process, but taking the time to conceptualize and build your education logo will yield more effective designs.

The Makings of Great Fashion and Clothing Logos

Fashion and clothing companies rely largely on their logo to build their brand and reputation. It’s the image that pops in the mind of consumers when they hear or think of a certain designer label. It’s what goes on almost all the apparel and accessories they offer. It’s the face of their business.

So when you see interlinking Cs, you know it’s Chanel—much the same way that interlocking G’s are for Gucci, the letter V on top of L is for Louis Vuitton and the polo player silhouette is for Ralph Lauren.

That means having a great logo helps you find success and stay on top in this industry, whether you specialize in clothing, shoes, purses or hair accessories. But what makes a fashion logo great in the first place?

One is a stylish design. Fashion is a lot about style and attitude. And your logo should reflect that. You can take your cue from many popular brands that simply use their name or the acronym of their name. Set in sophisticated but powerful fonts, such logos always appear clean and crisp. This minimalist look also suits any material or medium, which is essential for fashion lines that feature their logos prominently in their products.

Second, logos need to feel timeless, like they will never run out of style. Chances are you’ll be using your logo for years. You know how fast trends come and go in the fashion world. So stick with designs that won’t lose their appeal and will go well with anything.

Third, your logo must resonate with your target audience. If you design baby clothes, make sure the colors, fonts and images you go for are fun and playful. Or if your selection is mostly kids’ clothes, keep it light and casual. No need for anything fancy or formal.

Finally, consider scalability and versatility. Will your logo be recognizable whether it appears as an icon on your webpage, part of a t-shirt’s design, or on your product tags? Remember your logo has to look great wherever you use it on. Customers must be able to identify and distinguish it and later associate it with your brand. If you’re able to do that, then you’re all good.

Landscaping Logo Ideas

How to Cultivate a Great Landscaping Logo

Landscaping and floral businesses stand to benefit from having a logo of their own. With an eye-catching and memorable design, you’ll find it easier to set your company apart from competitors. You’ll be able to create a positive first impression with a potential client, which can help you land a big job or order. And previous customers will have something to remember your services by, boosting your chances of being hired for another landscaping project or having your flower shop visited or called up again for another purchase.

But your logo can only make a big impact on your business if it’s designed well enough to portray your identity. The landscaping and floral industries are both visually oriented, so your logo must be visually appealing too.

You can start by deciding on an appropriate color palette. If you are a horticulturist or run a commercial or residential landscaping company, consider green, brown and blue. Green instantly reminds people of plants and gardens and at the same time conveys balance and harmony. Another earth color, brown helps make a logo appear rich and warm while creating an image of reliability. Blue is reminiscent of water or the sky and adds a tranquil touch to any design. For florists, using yellow is also a great way to depict creativity and confidence.

To make your logo even more attractive, you can incorporate nature-related images. For instance, illustrations of trees, branches, leaves, bushes, flowers, fences, walls, stones, rivers, hills and mountains would work well on designs for commercial landscaping businesses. It gives prospective customers a clear picture of the kind of service you offer. Just make sure the artwork on your logo is unique and doesn’t bear similarities to those of your rivals. Personalize it by highlighting your unique selling point or primary competitive advantage. Say landscape architecture is you specialty. You could add architecture icons to make your design distinct.

If you want to add text, choose a font the complements the other visual elements of your logo while reflecting your personality or expertise. Serif typefaces tend to have a professional and traditional feel. Sans serif styles are more clean and modern. Script fonts are associated with creativity and elegance, while decorative versions can give your logo a friendly and unique look.

And of course, your logo has to be as versatile and timeless as it is striking. If you can manage to pull that off, your business will bloom even more.

Medical Logo Ideas

Medical & Dental Logo Design

Tips for Designing Effective Medical and Dental Logos

For medical and dental practices, a logo can shape the way patients perceive their services. You can’t control how people will learn about your business, but you can guarantee a good first impression with a logo that instantly attracts and resonates with potential clients.

This means your design should be unique and relevant. It should project an image of a place managed by caring and competent health care professionals. It needs to reflect your mission and values. And it must help make patients feel that they will be in good hands.  

In most cases, it all comes down to the image or symbol you go with. The conventional route is to use an illustration that represents the kind of service the company specializes in. Dentists and orthodontists usually incorporate a molar or toothbrush illustration in their logo, while dialysis centers would use kidney-related graphics.

If the doctor running a particular medical practice is a general physician, icons associated with the industry as a whole would work, such as stethoscopes, surgical masks and scalpels. If you focus on clinical research, you could add a serpent scepter or cross to indicate that you conduct studies in the medical field.

Of course, you can always go abstract, be more playful or inject your personality into the design. Abstract and subtle symbols lend a modern, high-end feel to any logo. You can also integrate the image that embodies your service, but find a more appealing and unique way to showcase it. For instance, if your business boasts state-of-the-art equipment, you could demonstrate this in your logo with an über-contemporary form or pattern or perhaps some 3D art.

Also, don’t underestimate the power of a great font. You can transform your logo from boring to charming with a fun, decorative or personalized typeface. Or you could pair a pre-modern seal with modern serifs to capture the level of sophistication that one can expect from your facilities.

As for colors, it’s best to select hues that people readily think of when they picture the medical and dental fields: red, blue and white. Red is the most obvious choice, as it is the color of blood and the industry’s cross symbol. Blue conveys comfort and suits businesses like chiropractic clinics. White embodies peace and relief, making it a common option among services providing elder care and in-home nursing.

Finally, don’t forget to give your logo a reassuring and inviting feel. The last thing you want is to scare off or intimidate patients. Hospitals, clinics and all other medical facilities are havens and their logos should echo this.

Non-Profit Logo Ideas

Helpful Ideas for Non-Profit and Community Outreach Logos

The most influential non-profit and community outreach organizations in the world boast just as powerful logos that have helped them establish a connection with their audience and garner their support.

The logo is actually the heart of an organization’s visual identity—the first step to building your brand. Yes, branding is necessary for non-profit groups and community outreach centers, big or small. If you want people to be passionate about and loyal to your cause, you need to create a brand that strikes a chord with them. Once you achieve this, you can expect greater awareness, participation and financial aid.

But not all logos are able to evoke an emotional response from or grab the attention of the public. You’ll need an effective and unique design for that. One that is legible and clearly gets your message across. One that is impressive and memorable—a real standout. One that has distinct elements and doesn’t look like anything else out there. One that genuinely reflects your mission and attributes. And one that feels timeless and perpetually fresh and relatable.

Seems like a tall order? With the appropriate typeface, imagery and colors, you could easily make it work.

The font you choose for your organization’s name should match or complement your cause or focus. If you’re taking a serious and straightforward approach with your campaign, stick to thick and capitalized typeface in black for a stronger look. Promoting a community garden? Pick styles with a casual and fun feel. Looking out for the welfare of kids? Child-like typography would be a great fit. Running an online outsourcing group? Think rounded typefaces—they tend to convey friendliness and approachability.

Your choice of imagery must be well thought out too. An iconic figure for non-profit organizations that specialize in providing charity is that of hands, e.g., joined hands, hands in circles and overlapping hands. You can personalize this by adding other graphic elements or using a stylized or abstract version. You can also base your illustration on the nature of your organization like incorporating feet and tire treads for transport-oriented initiatives, a water drop for water-related drives, or a house or roof for campaigns to provide shelter. Christian and Muslim organizations could also add symbols relating to each religion, while groups geared toward specific regions could add an outline or silhouette of their target area, say Africa.

Colors matter a lot as well because of their psychological impact. Use red if you want to convey urgency, power or energy, yellow for youthfulness or optimism, and blue for tranquility. You can also select colors based on your objectives, such as green for natural and healthy solutions or environment-friendly drives.

Once you have decided on the graphic elements you would like for your logo, you can come up with a design that will help you make an even bigger difference in the world.

Entertainment Logo Ideas

Entertainment Logo Design

How to turn entertainment logos into big hits

The entertainment industry may be diverse, but in all genres success depends largely on standing out and getting your name out there. From musicians, bands or DJs looking to book their next gig to artists whose works are displayed in a gallery and actors starring in a theater or improv show, branding is part of the game. And that usually involves having a distinct logo that people can readily associate with you or your company.

But what exactly makes for an effective logo in the entertainment business? For starters, you’ll be taking a different approach than your typical corporate logos, which tend to be formal or serious. Instead think hip, modern, vibrant, stylish and creative—all of which reflect the dynamic and artistic nature of the industry.

Images not only add visual appeal, but can also be used to tell your story. So if you decide to incorporate graphics in your logo, choose illustrations that depict your expertise. Say you’re an event planner specializing in weddings, then go for wedding icons. But if you’re a party planner who arranges mostly birthday celebrations, lean more toward birthday party illustrations. You can also opt for personalized artwork that represents the kind of entertainment you offer and draws in your target audience.

Get as creative and unique as you can with your choice of fonts as well. A simple and classic typeface will do, if the text is meant to accompany an image. But if you plan on using just letters or words as your logo, you need an artistic, eye-catching and memorable font. You can also create your own typeface, injecting as much of your personality or your company’s characteristics in it. Whichever way you choose to go, just remember that the text, above all, must be readable!

As for colors, stick to bold and strong ones. You can even go bright and flashy—it is the entertainment industry after all. Many of today’s logos have touches of orange, red or purple. Dark colors like black and blue will work to, as long as it goes well with the overall look or theme.

You could also take your design up a notch with gradients, shadows, reflections and 3D effects. At the end of the day, what really matters is that your logo makes people smile, captures their attention or reminds them of something that brought them entertainment and amusement.

Health & Fitness Logo Ideas

Health & Fitness Logo Design

 


{loadposition Logo_Samples_Large}


How to make a health and fitness logo that works

Health and fitness is a serious matter. And people think extra carefully about any decisions they make that relate to their physical well-being. So if you want to draw in clients, then you’ll need an impressive and clever logo.

Creating one, however, is no simple feat. You actually need to strike a balance between a creative and appealing design and a professional and confident look. Say you run a Pilates studio or a yoga studio, or are a physical therapist. Your logo has to be visually striking but feel subdued and relaxed.

One way you can make this happen is by using appropriate or complementary colors. Top choices in the industry include blue, green, gray and red. Besides conveying a sense of trust and security, such hues are associated with vigor and vitality. They are particularly suited for gym logos, as people who work out with a fitness instructor or trainer seek to feel healthy and strong.

Your safest bet is to stick with one color. If you prefer to combine two, just make sure they blend well together. Contrasting hues are a bit risky, as they could appear to be too bold for sectors that aim to provide clients a soothing and serene experience. So instead of green and red, go for blue and green. Oh and try to keep your color palette to no more than three hues. Too many shades would not fit with the sharp and sleek image you want to project.

In terms of typography, pick out styles that reflect energy and wellness. You can play with artistic fonts, as long as they are not too ornate. Or you could opt for the classic and simple ones like Arial, Times New Roman and Verdana. What’s more important is that your choice of typeface is legible.

Your logo’s symbol must be well-thought-out too, should you decide to include one. Apart from the standard health and fitness icons, many businesses actually incorporate nature-related graphics in their logo to denote their earth-friendly or holistic approach or the natural sources used in their product line. Weight loss experts and nutritionists who design diet programs based on whole foods and organic goods could use such illustrations, as can suppliers of plant-based supplements and vitamins.

None of this will matter if the design is not scaleable or versatile. Remember your logo must look great on any medium for it to effectively represent your brand.

Slideshow: Top 50 Iconic Logos

The Definitive Ranking of the 50 Most Iconic Logos

On the surface, putting together this list of 50 iconic logos was a bit daunting, but that being said, it’s a challenge that the Logo Crew absolutely relished.  We combed through just about every logo out there to come up with our definitive list.  So take a scroll through and let us know what you think!


When you start delving into the realm of what makes something iconic, you’re starting to work in an area that often has a wide variety of opinions.  In fact, the definition of iconic isn’t even all that clear:

iconic: of, relating to, or of the nature of an icon

That definition really doesn’t clear things up at all.  To help clarify the ranking of the 50 most iconic logos, we set forth some clear parameters of what a logo would need to have in order to be considered “iconic”

  1. Highly recognizable – The logo must be an image that is recognized en masse in the United States and internationally.
  2. Symbolic status – The logo must be a widely accepted symbol of an industry, product or movement.  In other words, it must be important.
  3. Endurance – The logo must be part of an enduring legacy, not something that popped up overnight.

Along with those three main factors, we also realize that many logos reach iconic status due to emotional ties and this has been factored in as well.

Top Luxury Car Logos

The Definitive Ranking of Luxury Car Logos

Car logos are some of the most highly-recognized symbols in the world and none more so than luxury car logos.  Thus the challenge of ranking the logos of some of the coolest brands on the planet was just too good to pass up.  Scroll through our rankings to see who comes out on top!


When The Logo Crew For Logo Design Studio Pro took on the challenge of ranking all of the luxury car logos, it was not a challenge that we entered into lightly.  We are well aware of brand ties and allegiances that might have swayed our voting process.  That is why we came up with an impartial rating system to help us clearly distinguish the best from the rest.  Here was the criteria used:

  • Memorability – How memorable is the logo?
  • Scalability – How memorable is the logo? How well would the logo translate into different sizes or colors?
  • Relevancy – How appealing is this logo to the target market? (In this case, high-end, luxury buyers)
  • Personality – How well does the logo convey the personality of the brand?
  • Overall Appearance – How attractive is the logo overall?

We took every logo and had each member of our esteemed Logo Crew panel rate each logo against each criteria and then added up all the scores.  Some of the results were surprising and others were quite expected.  Either way, we’re confident that the results will speak for themselves.

Alignment

Arrangement or position of text and/or graphic objects.

1) TEXT: When used to describe text, the arrangement of text or graphics relative to a margin (or, the canvas in Logo Design Studio). Left alignment means that text is lined up along the left side. Right alignment lines up text along the right side. Center alignment aligns text around a midpoint.

2) OBJECTS: Alignment used for graphical objects determines their relative positions (on the canvas in Logo Design Studio). Most draw programs support an align command that allows you to align two or more objects and/or text so that their tops, bottoms, sides, or middles are aligned.

In Logo Design Studio, you can align the text and/or graphics on your logo canvas using the toolbar buttons, the Advanced Alignment section of the Tools pane, or the arrow buttons on your keyboard:

Logo Design Dictionary - Alignment

Aspect Ratio

The relative horizontal and vertical sizes of a graphic object or text box. When resizing graphics, it is important to maintain the aspect ratio to avoid stretching the graphic out of proportion.

In Logo Design Studio, you can uncheck the Preserve Aspect Ratio box in the Tools section to stretch an object to a size that better fits your look, but in some cases this may cause some quality loss. You can also resize text boxes by unchecking Autosize if some of your text seems to be getting “cut off”:

Discover your Brand Personality

Discover your Brand Personality

A 5-minute exercise to help focus your company branding and communication


Step 1: Print this page, grab a pen and clear your mind.  Think about your company, the products you sell, the people who work for you and who you want to buy your product.

You’ll find our Brand Personality Spectrum below.  Read each of the descriptors and think about how each set of words relates to your brand.  Place a mark closest to where you think your company falls on the spectrum.  Or if you’re starting a new company, or trying to re-brand your company, place a mark where you would like your company to fall on the spectrum. 

Note: There is no wrong way to fill this out – don’t overthink it.  This exercise works best when you go with your gut.

brand-personality-spectrum-test1 

Step 2: Find the numbers that are closest to your marks and add them up.


What does it all mean?

Scores between 6 – 30:

Your brand personality is classic and traditional.  You tend to prefer established ways of getting things done and like to operate with a firm plan of action.  Your communication style is professional and you actively seek to promote the image of a stable company with strong roots.  Your target market might be high-end, upscale clientele.

Scores between 41 – 60

Your brand personality is contemporary and energetic.  You move at a fast pace and like to translate ideas into action quickly.  You aren’t afraid to take risks and you have an open, friendly and approachable communication style.  You likely want your brand and products to be accessible to everyone – not just high-end consumers.  

Scores between 21 – 40

Your brand is one of two things:

a) Very quirky with dots all over the spectrum

b) Riding the middle without any strong brand personality

If you fall into the “A” category, no problem!  Just because your brand doesn’t easily fit into a box doesn’t mean that you don’t have a strong brand personality.  Read through all of the tips below and think about taking some of the traditional branding elements and combining them with some of the more quirky, contemporary ones.  For instance, you could stick with a traditional color scheme, and traditional typography while playing up a more casual, accessible tone in your communications.

If you happen to fall into the “B” category, you probably need to re-think your branding strategy.  No company can be everything to everyone.  Take a stand and let your brand personality shine.  If you don’t, you are guaranteeing that your brand will be easily forgotten.  You can’t ride the fence forever! 

Branding and Logo Tips for Traditional Companies


A traditional company should opt for classic typefaces and a conservative, rich color scheme.  You’ll want to rely on classic, time-tested elements that will help play to the conservative, stable nature of your company.  Your communication style should be fairly buttoned up, formal and corporate.

Color tips for Traditional Brands:

  • Cool colors like blue and green help convey a sense of strength, trust and calm, while certain shades of red can convey a bold intensity and seriousness.
  • Deep, saturated tones work well for traditional brands because they resonate an intensity and seriousness with which the brand will be associated.
  • A simple, sleek black and white logo can work very well for a more traditional brand, particularly one targeting an upscale clientele.
  • Using complementary colors rather than contrasting will also help convey the feel of a harmonious, trustworthy brand.

Font tips for Traditional Brands:

  • Serif typefaces similar to Times New Roman work especially well for traditional brands and help express that a company is formal, mature and trustworthy.
  • Certain formal script fonts can work well, but can have a distinctly feminine feel  which may not be a great fit for all traditional brands.
  • Stay away from lowercase and casual handwriting fonts, which are better suited to more casual, laid-back brands.

Graphic tips for Traditional Brands:

  • Logos with borders, particularly thin or fine borders help convey the message that your company is mature, honest and strong
  • Square elements work better than round ones for traditional brands.
  • Traditional left-justified alignments should be used since they are more formal and expected, which carries well with a traditional brand. 

Branding and Logo Tips for Contemporary Companies 


If your company is on the energetic, contemporary end of the spectrum, you’ll want to play to your strengths by using vivid, bright colors and more casual typography.  Your communications style should be friendly, open and approachable.

Color tips for contemporary brands:

  • Warm colors like orange and yellow help show off your up-beat, playful personality.
  • Purple is another color that can work well for companies who want to play up any creative credentials.
  • Using contrasting colors will not only help draw the eye, but will also help express the energetic, high-energy personality of your brand.

Font tips for contemporary brands:

  • Sans-serif typefaces like Arial work very well for contemporary brands and help convey the sense that a company is modern, agreeable and more informal.
  • Handwriting or script typefaces are also great choices for contemporary brands, adding a personal, human touch to your branding.
  • Using all lowercase letters for your company name isn’t a necessity, but is yet another way to convey the informal, accessible nature of your brand.
  • Stay away from using serif typefaces, which are too formal for a contemporary company.

Graphic tips for contemporary brands:

  • Logos without borders convey the sense that your company is fun, surprising and maybe a little quirky.
  • Rounded elements work better than square ones and can help a brand feel more modern and casual.
  • Center, right-justified and even asymmetrical alignments should be favored for contemporary companies. 

Let it shine!


Now that you have identified your brand’s personality, it’s time to get to work and show it off!  You should work to incorporate your brand personality in all of your marketing – from your logo to your website to your business cards.  The important thing is that your brand has a voice – now use it!

How to create a logo for your business

How to create a logo for your business

Whether you have a large, multi-national corporation or are just thinking about starting a business, creating a logo is one of the definitive keys to establishing a brand and growing your business.  Your logo is generally one of the first things that potential customers interact with and having the right look for your logo can quickly turn a potential customer into a buyer.  On the other hand, if your logo is poorly designed, unclear or just plain ugly, it can easily have the opposite effect.   To help get you moving in the right direction, our expert team has put together the definitive guide to creating a logo for your business.


Step 1: Understand your brand

Because a logo is the quintessential embodiment of your brand, you’re going to need to have a good understanding of your brand position before you even think about hiring a logo designer or creating a logo yourself.  If you’re not really sure what your brand identity is, that’s just fine.  You can check out our Brand Identity Worksheet to get you started.  The key is that you have a good idea how you would answer the following questions:

  • Where do you fit in the marketplace?  Or what is your average price point?
    • Are you priced higher, in the middle or lower than your competition? 
    • There is probably a solid reason behind your pricing strategy and your logo can help reinforce that decision with the right color, image and font choices.
  • What is your brand personality?
    • Is your business more on the fun, eclectic and accessible side, or are you trying to create more of an exclusive, high-end brand? 
    • Wherever you fall on the brand personality spectrum, your jewelry business logo needs to reflect the personality of your business.
    • If you’re not sure how to answer this, check out our Brand Identity Worksheet to help point you in the right direction.

Step 2: Learn some logo basics

Whether you’re hiring a professional logo designer or using logo software to create a logo yourself, you are going to want to understand some logo design fundamentals before you start the design process.  We’ve created the ultimate logo design guide, which you can download totally free.  Before you start the design process, take a few minutes to read through our tips – you’ll probably save yourself a lot of time and money if you do.  For a quick overview, these are the core principles of good logo design:

  • Logo Elements – Almost every business logo will include two things: the company name and an icon or image.  You can opt for an image-free or a name-free logo, but for most businesses, we would not recommend this.  If you have any doubts, make sure you include both your company name and a great image that ties into your industry.
  • Color – Color choice can make or break your business logo.  Most logos should use no more than 2-3 coordinating colors.  Different colors can evoke different emotional responses and you want that emotional response to tie in with your overall brand.  Also consider how your color choices look on a variety of backgrounds – business cards, storefronts, website, invoices, etc.
  • Fonts – Different fonts have the ability to convey the personality of your brand in just a few words.  When designing a logo for your business, choose a font that evokes the right personality and also ties in with your color choice.  You’ll want to make sure that the font you choose is not too thin or flowery so that it can be easily read on everything from your business cards to the front of a store.  Also, try and stick to one font, but if you must use multiple fonts in your logo, limit it to two fonts at the most.
  • Icons and Images – The right image or icon in your jewelry logo has the ability to tie the whole thing together.  When selecting images for your company logo, they should always tie into and reinforce your brand personality.  And above all, the image that you select for your logo should have some tie to your industry.  You don’t have to choose a something obvious – you can absolutely do something abstract.  Just make sure that whatever image you choose helps the consumer understand your brand.
  • Layout – There is no wrong way to lay out a logo – it’s something that you’ll have to play around with until you get the right look and feel.  That being said, when deciding how to position your company name with whatever image you choose, make sure the focal point of the design is the company name.

Step 3: Write down your ideas

Now that you have a basic understanding of the core logo design principles and know what your brand personality is, the fun work can begin!  Start thinking about what you want your jewelry business logo to look like.  We’ve put together logo inspiration galleries by industry if you want to see what’s already out there.  As you look at other logos, take some notes on things that you like and things that you don’t, which is a great way to help focus your design. 

[block border=”5px solid #aacb24″ padding=”10px 15px”]Pro tip: If you’ve got the time, use Pinterest to create a visual board of logos that you like.  As you add to your board, make notes about what you like and don’t like about each logo.  When you start the actual design process, the Pinterest board will be an easy reference point for you to turn to for inspiration.[/block]

During the idea phase, don’t limit yourself.   Include phrases, images and colors that you would like to include in your logo and equally important, write down things that you want to stay away from.  Here are a few questions to get you started:

  • Are there any specific colors that you want to use?
  • Any colors that you definitely do not want to use?
  • Are there any symbols or images that you definitely want to incorporate?
  • Do you want more of a handwritten font or a professional feel?

Once you have your idea list together, comb through everything and ask yourself if the specific idea ties in with your brand personality.  If an idea doesn’t reinforce your brand, then cross that idea off the list.


Step 4: Start designing!

You have a lot of different options when it comes to choosing how to design your logo and making the right decision from the start can help save you a lot of time and a lot of money.  If you’ve read through our guide and downloaded our free logo design eBook, then you already know more about designing a logo than 95% of the population, which means that the design process can begin!

Option 1: Hire a professional logo designer

There are definitely some positives to hiring a professional.  On the plus side, if you do your research and hire the right logo designer, you should get the following:

  • A consultation with the designer where you can lay out what your logo to include
  • A completely unique, professionally designed logo (sometimes several options to choose from)
  • At least 2-3 revisions if you don’t love the initial design concept

A good logo designer will want to ask a lot of questions about your business and what you want in a logo to make sure they deliver what you want.  When the process goes smoothly, a professionally designed logo can help take your business to the next level.

However, there are some downsides to hiring a pro when it comes to logo design and the biggest downside is the cost.  A professional logo designer who provides a full consultation, will work up multiple concepts and who will provide the finished product in all available formats will typically cost at minimum $300 and can cost much, much more depending on who you hire.  Cost aside, if you have the wiggle room in your budget and want a logo that will set you apart, you might very well want to consider hiring a pro.

Option 2: Use a web logo service

If your business is on a tight budget or you just want to test the logo design waters, there are a plethora of simple web apps that will help you design a logo.  These web apps offer a variety of templates for you to choose from and allow you to input your company name.  You can do some customizations like changing the color and the text font, but other than the limited custom options, you really don’t have many options for creating a 100% custom logo.  That being said, there are some pros to using a web app to create your logo:

  • Pre-designed options – Most logo web apps have at least a handful of logo templates for most industries, so if you’re struggling to pin down any concrete ideas for your company’s logo, the templates can be very helpful.
  • It’s easy – Simply select the logo template that you want and plug in your company name and tagline
  • It’s fairly cheap – Most web apps allow you to play around with and design a logo totally free.  Once you want to export and start using the logo, the costs range anywhere from $40-$200 depending on the format.

Using the tools provided, you can probably slap together a pretty decent looking logo and you will definitely save money by opting not to hire a pro.  On the other hand, there are some negatives:

  • Cookie-cutter designs – The limited logo templates and designs offered mean that your logo will likely be very similar to quite a few other logos in the marketplace.
  • Limited customizations – Other than changing the colors or the font and moving the icon around, there aren’t many options for really customizing your logo.
  • Surprise costs – You’ll want to shop around before choosing a web app to design your logo.  Most companies don’t list a price up front and you could get caught by surprise when trying to check out after creating your new logo.

If you’re on a limited budget or need something very simple, this route could probably work well for you – just make sure you do your research and use the right app for your logo.

Option 3: Use logo design software

If hiring a designer is too expensive and you’re not in love with the cookie-cutter look of web app logos, you may want to consider purchasing some logo design software.  If you get the right software, you’re really getting the best of both worlds with a custom look at a great price.  Not all logo design software is created equal though and any software that you choose should absolutely include the following:

  • A variety of industry-specific templates to get you started
  • Customization tools like unique brush strokes, shapes and shading tools
  • Integrated commercial-use fonts for you to play with
  • A set of drawing tools if you want the ability to design something completely from scratch
  • The ability to export your designs in a variety of sizes and formats

On top of all the extra bells and whistles, the right logo design software also allows you to create and export as many logos as you want.

The one big downside of course is that like any software, you will have to download and install logo design software onto your computer, which can eat up your hard drive space.  And while many logo design software titles offer free trials, software doesn’t give you the instant gratification that a web app might.  When it comes down to it though, for the price (starting around $30), you get a lot of bang for your buck when you choose to design your logo with software.

However you choose to create your logo, make sure you do your research, plan ahead and go with the option that best fits your business.

Creating a logo for a jewelry business (Part 2)

Tips & Ideas for Jewelry Logos

 

Whether you are running a veritable jewelry empire or you just want to sell a few hand-crafted jewelry pieces on Etsy or a website, creating a logo is one of the first steps towards creating a memorable brand. The right logo has the power to help connect people instantly with your brand, and a bad logo can very easily do the opposite.

With a jewelry business, you are selling a product that can be elegant, understated and timeless, yet on the flip-side, can also be quirky, unique and colorful. Jewelry is the ultimate accessory and the type of jewelry a person wears is usually a very personal choice. A person’s jewelry is usually chosen to help reflect their unique personality and your business and logo should help cater to that.

Before creating a logo for your jewelry business, it’s important that you understand who your target market is so that your logo will appeal to that market. A logo for a teenage girls costume jewelry line would be vastly different than a logo for a high-end jeweler. You’ll also want to have a good understanding of your brand personality so that you can create a jewelry logo that will represent your jewelry business well.

 

Color Ideas for Jewelry Logos

 

Color-graphicChoosing the right colors for your jewelry logo can help set your business apart from the pack.  There are no hard and fast rules about the right colors for a jewelry logo, but there are definitely some combinations that have been proven to work well.  Here are a few of the best ways to use color in your jewelry logo:

 [icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Go bold – bright jewel tones are excellent for jewelry logos

 [icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Play with pastel hues for a fresh, girly appeal

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] If your target market is young females, incorporate pink and purple for a girly appeal

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For a high-end look, incorporate metallics like gold, silver and bronze

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Use several shades of the same color, which gives a rich, lustrous appearance

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Go for an understated elegance with just black

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Try incorporating shades of purple, which evokes a feeling of richness and royalty

 

Image Ideas for Jewelry Logos

 

Image-graphic

Not every logo needs an image to convey it’s message, but in the case of a jewelry business, most companies would be best served to incorporate an image in their logo. Again, your choice of logo image should be tied directly to your target market and your brand proposition, but here are some ideas that we know work well for both everyday jewelry lines and high-end jewelers:

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Use jewelry within your logo. A gemstone, a ring or a necklace all lend themselves to making excellent jewelry logo images.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Go geometric – If you want something a little less obvious, try incorporating geometric shapes into your logo design.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Try something ornate – Not recommended for every jewelry business, but if your jewelry features highly detailed designs, think about creating a logo that reflects your style

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Connect your logo with beauty by incorporating the beauty of nature. Flowers, butterflies, pearls and anything colorful can all work well for jewelry logos.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For an understated, elegant look, use a simple monogram rather than an image.

 

Font Ideas for Jewelry Logos

 

FontBall-graphicChoosing the right font for your jewelry logo can help convey the personality of your brand more than almost anything. There is no right or wrong way to choose a font – you’ll likely have to experiment a bit to find just the right one. That being said, if you know the message you want your brand to convey, it’ll be much easier to find the font for your logo that best fits your brand. Here are a few ideas:

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For an accessible, everyday jewelry brand – Choose something fun, upbeat and accessible. Casual handwriting fonts work especially well, also unique, quirky fonts can be great for the right brand.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For a high-end, expensive jewelry brand – Choose something elegant like a script font or a classic serif-style. Both font styles evoke a feeling of history and richness that are great representations of a high-end brand.

 

 

Quick Tips for Jewelry Logos:

  • Do understand your target market and brand personality before creating your logo
  • Do adhere to core logo design principles
  • Don’t be afraid to choose a bold color if it fits your brand
  • Don’t choose a font that is to swirly, twirly and girly
  • Do consider using a gemstone, necklace or ring in your logo
  • Do think about incorporating jewel and geometric shapes in surprising ways
  • Do play to and incorporate your brand strengths  

What Your Logo Colors Are Actually Saying

Whether you realize it or not, the colors you see impact your decisions every day.  As humans, we have been hard-wired to respond in certain ways when presented with specific colors.  As a small business owner, what this means is that the choice of the colors you use in your branding is vitally important.  While you may personally love the color yellow and wear it every day, yellow ultimately may not be the right color choice for your brand.

Red

The color red is a bold, exciting color and it’s associated with passion, heat, energy and on the flip side, can also be associated with aggression and danger.  It’s a statement color and choosing to integrate red into your logo tells the world that your brand is energetic and exciting.

As a side note, some studies have found that the color red can stimulate appetite, which is why it is one of the most widely used colors in food and restaurant logos.

Examples of red logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-coca-cola-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-cnn-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-pinterest-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-frito-lay-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-virgin-logo.jpg
a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-time-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_Red-Target-Logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-nintendo-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_Red-Netflix-Logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_red-lego-logo.jpg

 

Orange

If you want to be seen as friendly and approachable, orange might be the right color for your brand.  In branding, the color orange is often seen as being one of the most cheerful colors and generally implies that your brand is fun, youthful and accessible.  It also carries tones of innovation and modernity, which tie into the youthful feel and similar to red, orange is a warm, energetic color.

Examples of orange logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_discover-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_amazon-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_nickelodeon-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_shutterfly-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_harley-davidson-logo.jpg
a1sx2_Thumbnail1_payless-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_hooters-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_fanta-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blogger-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_firefox-logo.jpg

 

Yellow

While yellow is often thought of as a warm, sunny and friendly color, you want to use this color with caution.  In North America, the color is heavily tied to transportation and most warning signs are a yellow hue.  Also, historically, being “yellow” meant that you were cowardly, which generally is not one of the adjectives that you’d want associated with your brand.

Caution aside, there are many brands that have used yellow to set themselves apart and like red, yellow has also been shown to be an appetite stimulant.  Other words associated with yellow: optimism, warmth, and clarity.

Examples of yellow logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-nikon-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-nat-geo-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-best-buy-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-mcdonalds-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-shell-logo.jpg
a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-sprint-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-caterpillar-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-hertz-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-ikea-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_yellow-subway-logo.jpg

 

Green

Green is the color of life and growth in almost every area of the world and it is most widely used to emphasize a brand’s organic and natural side.  Because of the strong ties to growth, green has been used very well for financial logos as well.  Other words associated with the color green include peace and health, making it an excellent choice for brands who want to play up a restorative presence.

Examples of green logos:

 a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-starbucks-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-spotify-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-xbox-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-tropicana-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-whole-foods-logo.jpg
 a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-land-rover-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-john-deere-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-holiday-inn-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-android-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_green-animal-planet-logo.jpg

 

Blue

Blue is one of the most widely used colors in logo design and there is good reason for that.  The color blue conveys a tone of professionalism and implies trust and dependability.  It can also signal strength and integrity, which means that for banks and financial institutions, blue is an excellent choice.  On the flipside, blue is also highly associated with serenity, peace and tranquility and can work well for health, spa and beauty brands.

Examples of blue logos:

 a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-jpmorgan-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-facebook-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-ibm-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-wordpress-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-oralb-logo.jpg
 a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-hp-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-dell-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-amex-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-walmart-logo.jpg  a1sx2_Thumbnail1_blue-nasa-logo.jpg

 

Purple

If you want your brand to be perceived as luxurious, purple may well be the way to go.  In western cultures, purple has historically been the color of royalty, which gives it it’s high-end appeal.  Purple has also been associated with the church, which lends itself to being a good representation of a brand that is considered dignified and wise.   Along those lines, purple has also been use to showcase a brand’s imaginative and creative side.

Examples of purple logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-syfy-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-taco-bell-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-welchs_logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-wonka-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-yahoo-logo.jpg
a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-aussie-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-big-brothers-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-cadbury-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-crown-royal-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_purple-hallmark-logo.jpg

 

Black

Using the color black in your logo can convey a lot of different things.  On the one hand, the color black has strong connotations of sophistication, seriousness and power, which can be great for high end luxury brands.  On the other hand, for many cultures, black is the color of mourning and is symbolic of death.  The color black is heavily tied to the supernatural as well and is the color of the unknown.

That all being said, almost every logo will have to have a black and white version for cases where color is not available and as of 2014, black logos are right on par with current design trends.

Examples of black logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-lexus-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-puma-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-times-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-ysl-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-adidas-logo.jpg
a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-chanel-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-cartoon-network-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-gucci-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_black-guinness-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_nike-logo.jpg

 

White

Historically, the color white has been used to convey purity, cleanliness and simplicity.  It can also be used to convey balance and a sense of calm or zen.  Baby brands, organic products and brands dealing with wedding products are all industries where white favors heavily.

Similar to the color black, even if your primary logo is full of color, you’ll almost always need a version that can be done just in white and black.

Examples of white logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_white-apple-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_white-abc-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_white-levis-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_white-dominos-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_white-coca-cola-logo.jpg

 

Brown

The color brown has an earthy, masculine feel that is often associated with the outdoors.  Companies who work closely with or in nature or who want to give consumers the feeling that they are down to earth and practical should consider using brown in their logo.  Brown is also closely tied with dependability and reliability.

Examples of brown logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_brown-ups-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_brown-godiva-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_cracker-barrel-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_brown-hersheys-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_caribou-coffee-logo.jpg

 

Pink

Is there any color that is more closely associated with femininity than pink?  Pink is light and fun and flirty and fresh and can be great for logos directed towards female consumers.  It is also tied closely to the idea of sweetness and works well for confectioners or bakeries.

Examples of pink logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_pink-barbie-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_t-mobile-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_pink-orkut-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_hello-kitty-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_pink-vs-logo.jpg

 

Multi-Colored

While most logos will utilize more than one color, the logo design standards typically state that you should limit your color choices to no more than 2-3.  However, there are circumstances where it might make sense to use a multitude of colors in your company logo.  For instance, if you are trying to convey that you offer a wide variety of products and services, a multi-colored logo could work well.  Using more than 3 colors also helps convey that your brand is inclusive and is focused on diversity.  If those are key pillars of your companies brand, multiple colors could work well in your logo.

Examples of multi-colored logos:

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_google-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_windows-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_ebay-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_bahamas-logo.jpg a1sx2_Thumbnail1_olympic-logo.jpg

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] Connect your logo with beauty by incorporating the beauty of nature. Flowers, butterflies, pearls and anything colorful can all work well for jewelry logos.

Font Ideas for Jewelry Logos

 

FontBall-graphicChoosing the right font for your jewelry logo can help convey the personality of your brand more than almost anything. There is no right or wrong way to choose a font – you’ll likely have to experiment a bit to find just the right one. That being said, if you know the message you want your brand to convey, it’ll be much easier to find the font for your logo that best fits your brand. Here are a few ideas:

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For an accessible, everyday jewelry brand – Choose something fun, upbeat and accessible. Casual handwriting fonts work especially well, also unique, quirky fonts can be great for the right brand.

[icon name=icon-ok][/icon] For a high-end, expensive jewelry brand – Choose something elegant like a script font or a classic serif-style. Both font styles evoke a feeling of history and richness that are great representations of a high-end brand.

The Lowdown on Salon and Spa Logos

What does it take to get would-be clients walking through the doors of your salon and spa or calling you up for an appointment? Effective marketing strategies, including the use of an eye-catching, relevant and memorable logo.

Your logo can shape a customer’s first impression of your business. So it should reflect the atmosphere of your spa or salon. It must inspire or encourage people to try out your services. And it has to convey professionalism.

Of course, you need to also ensure that your design is unique, especially if you plan on selling your own cosmetics or grooming products too. Think of your target audience and what would catch their attention.

In most cases, it’s a matter of striking a balance between making sure your logo gets noticed and at the same time reflects the kind of experience you offer. For instance, if you provide luxury day spa services, you need a logo that’s refined, simple and elegant but not too subtle. That means avoiding bright, flashy colors and bold typefaces and still finding a way to give your logo a standout look.

Image-wise, a number of symbols are associated with the field. If you’re a hairdresser targeting a primarily female clientele, an illustration of a woman’s hairstyle would be an obvious choice. If you’re a masseuse, you can feature two hands or a palm in your logo to denote the soft, soothing and healing touch of a massage therapist.

Many companies, including medical spas, incorporate graphics related to plants, vegetables and fruits to highlight their natural approach or use of nature-based products. A flower is also typically featured to convey beauty, a leaf for health and longevity, and a budding plant for new beginnings. Other common visual elements include waves, the moon, and a butterfly, dragonfly or bird.

Color is another critical component. Blue evokes feelings of calm and comfort, pink conveys peace and tranquility, and green can represent the holistic methods the business adopts. Shades of red also work if you wish to reach out to lively and energetic people or communicate your company’s focus on health and vitality.

Plan to include your business name in your logo? Stick with delicate, smooth and elegant typography such as script typefaces to reflect the ambiance of your spa. If you want to emphasize your hairstyling or makeup expertise, you could opt for artistic or creative fonts.

Once you have everything sorted out, you can create a remarkable logo that helps increase your chances of bringing in more clients.
