A logo should be easily recognizable in large- and small-print. You want consumers to recognize your brand, whether it’s embroidered on a t-shirt, on a billboard or in a digital ad on someone’s phone. Your logo should be simple and should not compete with other company logos. You don’t want to roll out an ad campaign with a big yellow “M” that consumers might possibly confuse with McDonald’s, as logos are trademarked, and a logo that reminds consumers of a trademarked logo could land the newer company in legal hot water. Popular logos are recognized around the world, regardless of the language of the text surrounding it.
Establish Instant Brand Recognition
A well-designed logo will be memorable, helping customers to remember the brand.
Shapes and colours are easier for the human brain to process and memorise than words are. This means that if the identity is unique in the marketplace it’s easy to find and identify the company once again to purchase its services, and to recommend to friends.
Logo design influences our decisions
From our very first day we build up a visual library in our mind and begin to associate fonts, shapes and colours with specific emotions and objects.
By simply looking at a logo, like it or not we will immediately make judgements, and perceive a business, product or service in a certain way.
If we think a company looks too expensive, too corporate, too fun, or too radical we will avoid it. Likewise, if the logo (and the associated brand identity) looks like the type of company, products or service we’re looking for, and wish to be associated with, we will actively engage with the company and buy its products and services.
This is why it’s essential the logo correctly represents the business, as you want to attract the right audience.
