Logo design is not easy at all and most times it can actually be very challenging. A logo represents the brands image and so, it must be designed with extra care and attention to every detail.
When designing a logo, you should take into consideration some basic rules. For starters, preliminary sketches are a must! This first step in designing a logo is crucial, as it helps you clear your mind, organize your ideas and define the concept.
Creating a balanced design is also important. By balance, I mean choosing the right weight for the graphics, pairing the fonts correctly, keeping in mind some ratio rules, etc.
Also, think about the scale of the logo. In logo design, size does matter, and a logo can look very different on a small scale, rather than it looks on a bigger scale. So consider the scale of the logo when you details it and think about how it would look on a truck, or on a letterhead.
Color has a great emotional and psychological impact, so taking it into consideration is important in any kind of design. You should know some color theory basics in order to choose the right shades and pair them perfectly.
Before starting a logo design, you should also do a bit of research on the company you design for. The logo design concept must suit the client and its vision. Don’t use cartoonish fonts for a corporate business, or a rigid design for a kindergarten. These may sound like common sense rules, but there are many designers who forget them.
