Brand Identity and Corporate Logos

Designing a successful logo

Designing a successful logo

by Jack Nicholls, Creative Director

I have been designing logos since I was about 5 years old. As a good Canadian boy, I would try to copy the NHL hockey logos, and later the NFL logos to the point where, through sheer repetition, I could draw them all by heart. The big red “C” of my hometown Montreal Canadiens, the spoked “B” of the evil Boston Bruins, and that big awesome Nordic horn on the purple Minnesota Vikings helmet. Even then, I had a feeling that some were better designs than others...but why? What makes a "successful" logo? How do you define its success?

I remember enjoying learning if a logo had a symbolic meaning to the city they belonged to. When I drew the Detroit Red Wings logo, I liked it even more when my dad told me that the car tire in the logo represented the city’s automotive industry.

A company’s logo shouldn’t be that different from a sports one. It should instill confidence, be very recognizable, and elicit pride and loyalty — for employees and clients alike fietsroutes gpx downloaden. It should also look cool on a t-shirt. I think there are a few simple criteria, that if met, will result in a logo that can be defined as "successful." Of course this is all just my opinion — but I have formed this opinion over (gasp) about 40 years of observation.

Where to start

Below are some common approaches (and examples) for designing a logo.

a. The name

There are levels of “obviousness” when it comes to brand recognition. The simplest, most obvious is if the logo is just the name in a stylized font or design. This can be a very clean and effective method. It doesn’t rely on a symbol, the wordmark is the symbol. Take the logos of IBM or Coca-Cola, for example. It’s just their names, but in completely original, instantly recognizable letter forms. Think Metallica, KISS, and the Beatles.

b readly magazine herunterladen. The symbol

One step over from that is the name with a symbol. The Apple logo is an apple, Burger King shows a burger, Domino's, Target, Puma... A symbol of the name of the company should be considered quite obvious. Your company name is “Cardinal Software” and your symbol is...a cardinal. You get it. Other people will, too. Trying to be original about the design is where your skill and imagination come in. Good luck, Batman.

c. The first letter(s)

This is still pretty obvious. “What’s his name, again?.. It starts with a “P””. It helps tie down the association of your company’s name to its most obvious symbol: the company name’s first letter. It ain’t genius – but it can be effective. Your company starts with a letter “P” so your logo is a letter “P”. That’s what I did for Pinnacle Promotions and NetKnacks tennis awards autodoc herunterladen. Superman is a strong subscriber to this approach.

d. The unrelated symbol

A great coup is to get your brand known for a symbol that has nothing to do with the name and doesn’t involve the word or letters. It is purely an associated mark. The NBC peacock and Pepsi (swirly ball thing) are pretty good examples, but I think Nike and the Rolling Stones own this one. Swoosh.

Achieve logo greatness

Now that several approaches have been covered to get started, here are 5 checkbox-able elements that I believe can help steer you toward achieving logo greatness.

1. Keep it simple

KISS - “Keep it simple, stupid” is a cliché for a reason. And I think it was coined by a logo designer. The genius of many logos lies in their simplicity. If you ask any random person to draw the McDonald’s logo, there's a good chance they can sketch the golden arches ios 13 wil niet. This is called brand recognition. Also, no matter how complex the logo, it should still work when represented in black and white. Try to avoid drop shadows, effects and anything that makes your logo what I call “fussy”. Just take a look at the big kids, like Amazon, Walmart, Mercedes, etc. They spend millions on branding and advertising, but all of their logos are very simple.

A very quick aside: rules are meant to be broken. I’ve seen many breweries, for example, with logos featuring detailed, retro, hand-drawn details, like Creature Comforts from Athens, GA, for example. They look great on a t-shirt or a beer tap, and I admire their complexity (look for a future blog post on this, specifically), but it’s still a good idea to have a simplified version because...  


2. Make it scalable

This ties in to “simple”, but deserves its own category because of its importance herunterladen. Keeping a logo simple is a design decision — making it scalable is an exercise in practicality. Having worked in the promotional products industry for many years has allowed me the opportunity to see thousands of logos, and many of these logos, although great, will absolutely not work when imprinted on a pen. The logo designer did not have the foresight to realize their logo might be used at ⅛ of an inch. Thin lines, tiny fonts, and fussy details are all to be avoided for this reason.


3. Easy on the color

Like “scalable”, “color” could also roll up under the “simple” category. Most designers know that color usually comes after design – I said it before, but no matter how complex the logo, it should still work in black and white.

A whole essay could be written about color and what it can mean for your logo and brand. And many have. Red is aggressive, blue is peaceful, yellow is friendly, blah blah blah. I won’t get into those details because some of the color “feeling facts” go against what I think is just as important: originality windows 10 auf usb stick downloaden. I've designed a logo that features the owner’s college football team colors (Go Tigers!) I once chose orange simply because several competitors were blue. Ask the stakeholder and go with your gut.

Whatever your feelings about specific colors, simplicity of color is often the best way to go. Secondary colors, whether they are in the logo itself, or part of the supporting branding elements, can be tweaked over time. Also, there are times when your logo will need to be used as a single color, like white on a colored shirt. Fewer colors can mean less cost. That aforementioned NBC peacock is great, but I’m sure many people have slapped their foreheads when it comes to using it (and paying for it) as a 7 color screenprint on a polo shirt. There will also be times when using several colors isn’t even an option, like a one-color pad print on the side of a pen. Trust me on this one. One, or two colors, max.


4. Be original

When designing anything – logos especially – it's good practice to stay up with trends, so that you can avoid them herunterladen. If you have studied logos over the years, you can often see where they fit on a timeline. Heavy drop shadows, skeuomorphic design (designer-geek word of the day! It refers to a design style that attempts to be as "realistic" as possible: three-dimensional shading, shadows, etc.), swirling elliptical shapes, the overlapping of multiplied colors, and single line icons all tend to date logos. It might look super cool this year, but will it be as good in five?.. ten? Beware of jumping on a bandwagon.

A side effect of trying hard to be original is that sometimes you are not as original as you thought! I have poured many hours into designing a logo just to have Dean in Accounting say “that looks just like the [another company] logo!” Being a successful designer means you have to develop thick skin. Of course you want to shoot back and say “no, it doesn’t” or “at least I’m not an accountant, Dean-o.” But you can’t. And you shouldn’t. This kind of feedback, although painful (and sometimes downright wrong) is valuable. Take the critique seriously. Ask other people what they think. Even point out the comparison – whether you like it or not, it might be true delicious spiele kostenlos downloaden vollversion. Like with music, there’s always another melody. And almost every time, I’ve been happier with the result after going back to the drawing board. Because part of me knew Dean was right.

5. Be clever

This is the fun part. This is where, if you can check off the previous elements, you can flex your logo-designing muscles. This separates the designers from the truly gifted designers. It is not necessary to have an element of clever, but it is very rewarding to get the extra points. Everyone seems to know about the FedEx arrow in the negative (white) space between the “E” and the “x”. Once seen, it cannot be unseen. Sure, it’s a bit of a happy accident, but it was tweaked to be absolutely, positively, intentional. This negative space in a logo can often be where clever lives. Every logo designer looks for it, and hopes to find it there.

I have designed many logos, and I have to admit, I almost always try to get these extra clever points notruf 112 kostenlos downloaden. The thing to be careful of, though, is that it shouldn’t come at the expense of the design itself. Sure, you have a super clever idea of how to sneak some element of the company into one of the letters of the logo. But if you can’t make it look good, it’s not worth it. If it’s too small, it’s not worth it. It has to come in last place, because it is, ultimately, unnecessary.

Your turn

I’ve often thought that logo design is perhaps the purest of all the corporate arts. Maybe it goes back to the hieroglyphs. You are trying to cram the essence of an entire company into one little nugget. And making it simple, scalable, original, memorable, and maybe even a little clever, is a challenge that many designers attempt, but very few truly excel in.

There's a very helpful Picasso-influenced phrase I often use as a retort to clients or friends who might say “that’s what you came up with for a logo? It’s so simple. It must have taken you, like, 5 minutes to do that.”

“Actually, it took me 40 years to do that.”

As a designer, it is quite something to be able to look at a company's logo and say "I did that." It will (hopefully) be used for years on letterhead, the website, branded apparel, business cards, promotional products, videos – and maybe even on the front door you walk through every day free of charge.

The Right Color Choices for Promo Products

The Right Color Choices for Promo Products

When you, as a consumer, walk through the supermarket, how do you make your purchases? You may first think of price, but unknowingly, product packaging is influencing your purchase decisions. You gravitate towards items that physically appeal to your senses. The shapes, forms, colors, patterns, and typography all have an effect on you, and how you think and feel herunterladen. So, when it comes to your business, you have to get into the mind of the consumer, and design your product and packaging in a way that represents your brand, and still appeals to the customer’s sensibilities.

Promotional products are excellent brand building tools, but in order to utilize them successfully, you have to take this into consideration when it comes to customization symbole für verknüpfungen herunterladen. The most successful companies have developed such a characteristic brand identity that consumers even immediately associate certain colors with those companies. If a company has such effective branding, that can easily be translated into different mediums, from print advertising, to television, to promotional products microsoft updates herunterladen.

When choosing the most appropriate colors for your promotional products, there are a few key elements that you should keep in mind.

1. Target Audience

If you understand precisely who your target audience is, you will not only choose the most appropriate promotional products to give to customers, but specifically those that visually appeal to them mac videos downloaden youtube. Each color generally conveys different emotions and messages within different demographics and cultures. For example, the color green can represent nature, money, health, greed, calmness, or good luck, depending on with whom you are communicating. Red can represent passion, danger, speed, or excitement. In terms of culture, as an example, in the western world, white represents peace, while in parts of Asia, it represents death adblock plus herunterladen. Vibrant colors tend to resonate more with a younger audience, while more subdued colors resonate with an older crowd. A neon mug might not attract an older consumer as much as a stainless steel mug.

 2. Corporate Identity

When choosing a color scheme, it is not just about personal preferences. Those colors should be representative of your brand. What color suits your brand personality and the characteristics of your products or services? What do you want customers to feel when they interact or associate with your brand cd downloaden op computer? Remember, you don’t have to limit yourself to only one color. If done so appropriately, you can choose multiple colors that complement each other and work together well even on different backgrounds.  For example, this structured cap combines a few different colors successfully, without being jarring to the eye.  There aren’t certain colors that represent specific industries; it’s just finding what works best for your particular brand schriftarten mac.Contrasting Double Piping Cap Structured

3. Your Competitors

Examine what sorts of color schemes your main competitors are using, and choose the opposite. In this way, you can differentiate yourself from the crowd avast free download chip. Still, always remember the importance of staying true to your brand. By going against the grain, you avoid looking as though you are simply jumping on the bandwagon. In branding, it’s all about being memorable.

Ultimately, if you have your goals in mind, you will make all the right choices when it comes to your color selection downloaden van icloud. Through good color choices, you can truly communicate your brand’s message, make your brand’s personality shine through, and Make the right impression™ time and time again.

Top Tips for Choosing the Right Promotional Products

Top Tips for Choosing the Right Promotional Products

By now, you should know that promotional products offer tremendous value to the advertiser, as well as to the recipient.

According to research by the Advertising Specialty Institute, one third of recipients said that they are more likely to do business with an advertiser after receiving the promotional item than they were beforehand.

Recipients not only remembered the name of the advertiser, they also overwhelmingly felt more positive about the advertiser.

With this information in mind, you should know that promotional products can convey your company message creatively herunterladen. But to achieve the maximum impact, you have to give the right product to the right person, and still stay true to your business image.

What does it really take to choose the promotional products that work for your business (and satisfy customers)? Without a clear marketing strategy, you are setting yourself up for trouble.

This applies to every company, whether a non-profit organization or a small business herunterladen. Here are some tips to choose the promo products to make your business shine and Make the right impression™.

 Know Who You Are

It goes without saying that you should know your products and services inside out. But aside from that, you should know your company values, what you represent, what sort of image you want to present, and what is your brand message. You should build your marketing strategy based on that herunterladen. Ask yourself if the product in question is appropriate for your brand. For example, if your business is in the educational industry, a custom beach towel may not be the ideal choice, but a custom clipboard folder may be better. It sounds too obvious, but by knowing yourself, you can know your customer too. That means that you can tailor your product to meet the needs of your target customers, while still building your brand accordingly pathe thuis film downloaden. Also, you could consider distributing one sort of promo product to existing customers, and a different one for potential customers, as you are conveying two different messages–one as a reminder, and one as an invitation.

Be Unique

When it comes to promotional products, all too often, businesses choose generic products that they may personally like, but in the end are forgettable. The idea is to convey your brand message in a way in which customers feel appreciated, and your brand is remembered. To put your best foot forward and make the right impression™, choose promotional swag that is in tune with your brand and connects with customers on a personal level kostenlose adventsgrüße herunterladen. For instance, a non-profit company could swap out a general promotional notepad for a Recycled Jotter & Pen. Choose a product that will be a memorable keepsake, unlike a generic product that any company could use. Consider what sort of items your competitors are likely to give away, and go against the grain, but remember to represent your company appropriately and creatively old whatsapp images. If everyone in your field is giving out cell phone holders, think of what makes you unique and make your decisions based on that.

The Recycled Jotter & Pen                       The Coloma Cell Phone Holder


Consider Location

Think about how and where you are planning to distribute the product epic games store schneller downloaden. If it will be at a company picnic, you have more leeway to customize larger promotional items like a cooler tote, while at a trade show, something lighter may be in order, like a convention tote. So make sure that you take location of product distribution into account when selecting the most effective and appropriate promotional products.

As you can clearly see, there is more to the story of promotional products than meets the eye herunterladen. Promotional products are highly valuable tools to include in your marketing strategy, but only if you know how to make them work for you.

When you have a clear strategy, an understanding of your brand and your customer, and a unique selling position, choosing the most effective and most appropriate promotional products for your business to give away to both potential and new customers will be straightforward.

But always remember that if you are still completely lost, you have Pinnacle Promotions firefox große dateien downloaden.
