Logos are an important part of branding your business because it is the one thing that everybody sees about your company no matter their level of engagement. In so many words, your logo is your best marketing tool because anyone can see. The fact that everyone can see it is the reason why the design of your logo should be eye-catching so they can quickly recall it. Here are some tips on how to come up with a great logo.
1. Define the purpose. The logo’s purpose is to put your business in the minds of your potential customers. Define what you want to be etched in your customers’ minds.
2. The principles of its design. First of all, the design concept of the logo should represent the company. Second, it has to be unique and standout. Third is that the reader should easily understand it. The combination of these three should communicate to the reader what your company is all about through your logo. The design can integrate some aspects of the industry your business is in. For example, if you are in the food business, a good color scheme would include any of the following: red, yellow, orange, or bright green as these colors that induce appetite.
3. It should give the identity of the brand. Your logo will appear on just about anything the company uses; your website, vehicles, papers, uniforms, letterhead, and a lot more. With so much exposure at stake, your logo must accurately communicate your brand’s identity.
4. Consistency. From a customer’s vantage point, it is always a good thing that everything they receive from your company has your logo on it. It can be the receipts or the papers that you give out. These are the little things that have the ability to improve your company’s sales figures through consistent branding and trust building..
