Five steps to the perfect logo design!

1. Keep it simple

You want people to be able to quickly snapshot your logo in their mind so they can easily recognise it when they see it at a later date. This is important because with recognition comes trust, and trust is vital to all great brands.

Keeping your logo simple helps it be memorable.

2. Make sure it's meaningful

Consider who your logo needs to appeal to and design it with them in mind. Different styles, symbolism, colours and elements will say different things to different people. Giving careful consideration to who your target market is when designing your logo maximises the chances it will catch their attention.

3. Make sure it looks good BIG and small

Your logo needs to be 'scalable'. It needs to look great on a billboard and it needs to look great on letterhead. When it's made really tiny and printed on promotional material (say, a pen), it STILL needs to look good.

(And this brings us back to simplicity. If your logo isn't simple, it's probably not going to scale well.)

4. Make sure it looks good in colour AND mono

Many people seem to like a lot of detail in their logo. They also like funky gradients, drop shadows and other 'cool stuff'. 'Cool stuff' has its place, but not in a logo. Any element that reduces the ability of a logo to look equally as good in one colour as it does in full colour should be discarded.

5. Make sure it will stand the test of time

Your company logo will naturally evolve over time, it's inevitable. But, if you start with something pretty timeless, the evolution can be fairly organic, won't upset loyal customers too much, or mess with the brand recognition you've worked hard to build over the years.

If you're looking for a timeless example, note how Coca Cola has been able to keep their typography much the same over the years while Pepsi has gone through some significant evolutions!
