Logos are essential for business if you plan to build or design a strong brand identity. A well-constructed logo can create loyal followers through simplicity and memorability. If you want a logo designed by our team, you should consider some essential steps and be aware that a logo is the visual representation of a company/brand's values, beliefs and functions. Below are examples of logotypes to help you communicate what you would like on your logo design. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us.
You can't make these logos tell your whole story. No one could guess sports apparel by looking at the 'Soowsh Tick'. Nike took an unrelated symbol and made it its own. Unless you're a church looking for a clean version of an ancient symbol, or you're Target or Apple, and you want to go with the obvious choice, it's best to pick a character that gets you excited and go with it.
This one is hard to keep unique because most fonts are so widely used, but it can be used to have a stylish, literary or legal look. Think HP, IBM and Honda. The best usage for this type of logo depends on many variables, such as; your initials can better graphically illustrate the company better than the full name, the name is too long, hard to pronounce, or is just not distinct enough to carry its weight.
An emblem logo, a shield or a seal encases the company name within the design. The most notable emblem logos include Starbucks, Harley Davidson, UPS and NFL.
These logos have a fantastic upside. They are unique, and they are a piece of art. The best approach is to know, t of symbol you want before you start. And all before you start, you almost always end up with something unique. These logos are often called a 'Combination Mark' - the combination of a symbol and a wordmark. The purpose of the combination mark is to create an identity that embodies a given company through a symbol and type treatment. In certain situations and with proper investment of time & money, a potent combination mark can use its symbol to represent the company without using text.
