Professional logo design: by Design by Pie

Your logo should be strong.

 

And unique to you. A strong logo is easily identifiable at a glance, is balanced, memorable and will use appropriate, meaningful typography, icons and colours to communicate the right message to your specific audience in seconds.

 

 

Experience = Effective results.

 

Designing a perfectly functional logo requires years of experience and an understanding of print and website design processes.

 

 

 

 

Future flexibility.

 

Once you've signed off the design, Pie provides all clients with a library of the final logo files, suitable for use on both screen or print projects.

Pie's logo designs are created as vectors.

 

This means your logo will be ready for use as small as a business card or big enough for van signage. Your logo can change colour easily and could be scaled up as large as a billboard if required, with no loss of sharpness.

 

 

 

And finally:

 

You'll be supplied with a brief logo guidelines document that outlines the specific colours, spacing rules and fonts used to create your logo and how maintain its integrity moving forward.

 

 

 

You'll have the basic tools to start building and growing your brand and its related style consistently on any other platform. You can also have confidence to work with other skilled design professionals that will help you on your journey.


Design By Pie : the logo design process explained

 

A lot of thought and research goes into getting your logo design just right. So, gathering essential information about your business, your competitors and your potential clients is an important part of the process. Your own design preferences are also very important to know at this stage.

 

There is a handy little online form here that will prompt you for the basic information needed to start the process.

 

The aim is to present a minimum of three different initial logo design concepts - each fulfilling the brief discussed, yet going in quite different directions. See examples below of the three initial logo design concepts created from the same brief, from a recent logo design project:

 

The 3 key phases: to Pie's logo design process

Once the initial concepts have been reviewed, it's at this stage that any required tweaks or edits to the chosen logo design can be made to get it exactly right.

 


One round of amendments to one or more of the initial logo designs is included in the cost quoted provided that the requests do not fall outside the initial brief provided or exceed 30mins work.(Examples might include: changing font style, altering colours, adding a strap-line, merging two concepts, adding small design detail).
