Understand why you need a logo
Business really is like dating: you try to attract the right customers and make them fall head over heels in love with your brand. So think of your logo as your dating profile picture. It will get people interested and trying to learn more about you (or swipe left because it's not for them). So you want to look good, right? Your logo will have a huge impact on the first impression of your business: it will give your customers
information about your brand and let them know if it's right for them.
Because your logo is such an important part of your brand, you want to make sure it's done right. All of your branding materials will feature your logo. You will stare at your customers from your website, packaging and business cards. Make it count! A great professional logo design not only has the power to communicate what it stands for.
It will also make a good first impression and help you stand out from the competition.

Define your brand identity
You want your logo to communicate your brand personality. And to do that, you must first understand what your core brand personality is. Once you have a clear idea of what makes you unique and what your brand is about, you will have a much easier time making design decisions that complement and complete that image.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself, to get to the bottom of your brand identity:
• Why did we start this business?
• What are beliefs and values that are important to us as a company?
• What do we do better than anyone else?
• What makes us special?
• If we could describe our brand in three words, what would they be?
• What are the three words we would want our customers to use to describe us?

Find inspiration for your design
The hardest part of the design process can be finding inspiration for the logo. Luckily, we have some tips for you that will make it really easy. Maybe you're a conceptual person and like to start brainstorming verbal ideas. A proper brainstorming session may be just what you need to determine the look you want to achieve. Here are three steps to help you extract the best creative logo ideas:
Follow the brainstorming rules: Brainstorming is all about pulling out all the ideas (even the really bad ones) and writing them down. Even a terrible idea can start a conversation that leads to a great solution. Think like your audience: Make a list of words that describe your brand and how you want it perceived. Think like a person in your target group and always think about what would be important to them. Include everyone: One person's brainstorming is fine, but just
diversity will do the magic.
Bring together people from all departments or even friends and business partners. The more perspectives, the better.

Check out the competition
The best place to borrow ideas? your competition! Take a look at what's already out there, what's resonating with your audience, and what to avoid. As you look at these other companies, think about what makes them different from you and how you can highlight those differences in your logo design. Make sure you stand out from your competition.
If every other company in your industry is monochromatic, you might want to choose a color that will stand out. If everyone else is traditional, maybe a fun, modern logo will catch the eye.

Choose your design style
Now that you have a clear idea of your brand and are feeling inspired, it's time to translate it into design. This is where many different elements come into play, from colors, shapes, and graphics to typography. By isolating each one individually and what it can do for your logo, you can take things one step at a time rather than being overwhelmed with the entire design at once. When thinking about your logo, the first thing to do is choose the right design aesthetic for your
brand. There is no one style that fits everyone, only what is best for your brand.
Classic - Fashion logos can be fun and exciting, but they can quickly become outdated. A classic style gives you better staying power and can help you reach a larger audience. This aesthetic keeps it simple and doesn't go crazy. Color palettes, graphics or fonts. A classic style shows people that you are reliable and down to earth.
Retro or Vintage: There's a reason vintage and retro designs have been in fashion for quite some time. They immediately evoke the past and evoke romantic nostalgic feelings. A vintage logo shows customers that you care about history and that everything you sell is done right. Distressed, hand-illustrated logos in brown and beige color palettes work beautifully with this aesthetic.
Modern and Minimalist: Brands often choose a clean and minimalist style to communicate how fresh and modern they are. This style uses lots of white space, minimal detail, and simple lines that often result in sleek, stripped-down logos. A minimalist and modern style The style shows your customers that your brand is current, cool and knows what matters. Funny and quirky:

The style works well in combination with other aesthetics like vintage to really get the message across. But it can also be combined with minimalist and fun styles for a simple and sophisticated or bright and youthful look. Can't pick just one? Of course, these styles aren't mutually exclusive—just mix and match to suit your brand. For example, your branding can be handmade and fun at the same time, just look at how the quirky illustrated logo for The Crafting Cactus sets it apart from

Find the right type of logo
In addition to the general style, there are 7 main types of logos to choose from when creating your logo. You can choose the one that best suits your company name or overall aesthetic, or mix and match them to create something unique. Lettermarks (or Monogram Logos): Lettermark logos can be a great way to enhance your company logo, especially if your name is too long or difficult to remember. Many companies use their initials, just think HP, CNN or H&M.
These monograms are great for minimalist logos, but keep in mind that they don't convey very well what your business is about. Wordmarks (or Logos): Wordmarks are a very easy way to use your company name as a logo. Give them personality and recognition, it's all about typography, just look at the wordmark logo for ONE. If you have a big name for your brand, this could be the perfect way to showcase it.

You can choose something simple or more complex, but be sure to choose an icon that creates a unique connection to your brand. These are often paired with a wordmark (you know, so customers know your name...at least until you're on par with Apple and Target in terms of brand awareness of

meanings of
various geometric shapes of logos. Mascot –Mascot Logos are a fun way to add personality to your brand. These are usually colorful cartoon characters that represent your business in a familiar and approachable way, like the cheerful gadget mole above. Combining character:

The brand name is placed next to the symbol or integrated into the graphic element, as designer ludibes demonstrates with the Brite Side logo. People will associate both elements with your brand, so you can use them individually or together. Emblem: Like combination marks, emblem logos are often a combination of
word and picture elements.
