Logo Designing- Make your service provider, ask you these questions
logo designs

For an amateur it may seem as easy as cutting a cake, but there are a lot of minds wracking behind every successful logo!

Think of the Nike logo. Tiny, but the impression stays. It speaks for the brand. It attracts and impresses. It is iconic, unique and lasting.

Every company wants their logos to be symbolic, and so would you. The other things that should be given priority after focusing on the “impression” part are:

It should fit within your budget

It should fit into a small space

It should be highly flexible

 

As per the author of Designing Brand Identity (John Wiley and Sons, Inc., fourth edition, 2013). “To rise above the clutter, a symbol or a logo is the fastest communication known to man. It unlocks associations with your brand on sight, so it’s important to get it right the first time around”

 

Great logos are not easy to create. From the initial phases of designing to the final rollout, there are numerous ideas created and scrapped to finally decide on one.

Getting in touch with a creative agency that invests in good creative minds who can think fresh and unique is important here. So is their experience.

A reliable service provider will have the right questions in front of you, before they start working on logo designing for your company or brand.

Here is a list of questions that you should be asked while creating a company logo. (Well, of course not all of them, but this checklist might help)

ABOUT BRANDING

Do you have any current logo?

What do you not like about your current logo?

Why do you want a new logo? What do you want it to accomplish?

What are the attributes that you want your audience to think when they see your logo?

Is it a traditional or a modern business?

What are your color/font preferences and why?

 

ABOUT DESIGN

 

What color do you prefer for your new logo, and why?

Where will you mainly use the logo- print media, web etc.?

Do you want to keep any part of your existing logo, if so why?

What, in your opinion will be a successful logo?

Do you want to include any particular words, icons, etc. in the logo?

 

ABOUT THE BUDGET, TIME, MANAGEMENT

 

Do you have any budget for your logo design?
