What is a LOGO?

A typical logo has an appearance of either a figure, image, some unique design, symbol, or even an animation. A logo is usually created by graphic designers who are often called logo makers. Every brand enterprise opts for a unique logo and no two logos are the same because of the uniqueness of the companies. The main motive of a logo is the identification of a brand or an organization however the use of a logo is not limited to identifications only. Today, logo developers are using high-order creativity to make visually communicating logos that are widely used by the marketing teams to promote their business and sell brand value.

Designing a Logo

Designing a logo is like creating any kind of visual graphic either by drawing with a pencil or using advanced design software. The process of creating a symbol for the identity of the brand is called logo designing. Creating a professional company logo design involves a few processes listed below.

Steps in logo designing process:

  • Understanding client's objectives
  • Conceptualization of logo
  • Planning for values, objective, brand message
  • Creation of logo
  • Modification & Alterations
  • Permission & Approval
  • Application of logo

A logo is created by religiously following the above-listed procedure. Any design process is initiated by understanding the requirements of the client and their brand objectives. After understanding the motive behind the creation of the logo, the graphic designer then forms a concept of the logo which will be used throughout the design process. The creation process involves producing the concept either in sketch form or in digital format using advanced design software. The design once created is not a sign of completion of the process as it requires certain modifications and alterations suggested by the client or the design team. After creating the main logo and its alteration now is the time to present the creativity to the client. It is usually becoming a tradition that the first few samples are rejected by the client after the final approval of the design. If all things went well then it will be used as the company's identity.
