Tips for Creating a Logo That Fits Your Product
The power of a logo goes beyond brand recognition. With the right format, combination of color and white space, and a level of appeal specifically geared toward your chosen audience, you can create an image that reflects your business on multiple levels. With just one symbol you can convey a clear message about your company philosophy, a promise of the quality of your product, and a hint of what you hope your customers will feel as they do business with you.
Ask yourself questions such as: Who is my target audience? Am I sending one clear message? Do all of the elements of my design (shape, color, fonts) support that message? Do any of those elements detract from my message? Have I considered how well this image will transfer to smaller or larger formats? How will it look if it’s in black and white?
