Tackling logo design and website development on your own may seem like a cost effective solution to getting started with your business, but in the long run, you are trudging through mud trying to get to the finish line.
If you want to avoid making a costly mistake that’s difficult – or oftentimes impossible – to correct, save yourself the trouble of disappointment and grasp the importance of this message:
Your logo is your bat symbol!
It’s the first point of contact you will have with potential customers and it’s your best tool to make a good first impression.
You may spend hours creating a visually appealing design that gives you a sense of creative pride. Chances are, it really will be a good design if you spend enough time on it.
But let’s be real – the disconnect that oftentimes occurs is when your logo fails to be a proper representation of your business. It needs to visually resonate with your target audience and become symbolic of an emotion you want your business to be synonymous with.
Here are the main elements of a logo that require your due diligence:
The font you choose should accurately represent the personality of your brand.
Serif fonts portray sophistication and conservative values.
Sans-serif fonts scream modernity and innovation.
Colour psychology is used universally in all branding, marketing, and advertising.
Warm colours produce feelings of hunger and desire, while cool colours signal class and refinement.
Vibrant colours appeal to youth, while muted colours might be a better choice for a different demographic.
The shapes you use in your logo will act as the physical symbols for your brand.
Like the McDonald’s arches represent a “dependable taste,” your logo should instill a feeling or thought that is consistent with the voice of your business.
The bottom line is: your logo design can make or break your business.
Business branding experts agree that the most important investment any entrepreneur can make is creating a logo that artfully balances these elements.
