Strong logos should be:

easily identifiable at a glance, balanced, simple, memorable and consist of appropriate typography, icons and colours to communicate the right message to your specific audience.

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 perimeters to start building and growing your 'brand' and its related style consistently on other platforms and you can have confidence to work with other skilled design professionals that might 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:

 

An explanation of the three key stages/phases to Pie's logo design process:
