One of the first things you do when you start a new business is devise the logo. Rushing through this process will not help with building a brand.
Some businesses take logo designing very seriously and shell out a lot of money while some others don’t bother because it is a waste of time. If you include logo designing in your business strategy and understand the secrets to forge a great one, you won’t need to spend too much time on it. We have all that you need to know right here!
Keep your target audience in mind
Different things entice different people. In order for your logo to attract your target audience, you must first understand it and then devise a logo accordingly. Surely, in your new business plan you have details about your target customers. Think of variations of the logo you have in mind. Then think of the one that will connect to them instantly.
Use fonts to show your emotions
When using fonts, many choose fancy ones because they think they are attractive. That’s not how you should approach them. Fonts should connect with emotions instantly. To get what we mean, we recommend you think about the Disney logo. The font appeals to kids and is creative as well. If the same logo used a boring or more professional font, it wouldn’t have the same impact.
Don’t take the power of colors lightly
The color(s) of the logo should truly represent your brand because colors also play an important role in business communication. Think about the type of new business you are launching and the reason behind it. Now, coordinate that with different colors. Colors speak to your emotions directly. Green is natural and warm while red is energetic. Orange is communicative and black shows sophistication. Choose wisely. Visual appeal is very important.
Make a flexible logo
This is where we have seen many a new business go wrong. Before finalizing the logo you should be sure that it looks good in different backgrounds and settings. In other words, a logo that looks good in blue should also look good in black and white. It should look good not just on the desktop but also on the mobile screen and the tablet. Such adaptability will save you from headache later on.
