Why design a logo?
A logo is a visual element that distinguishes a business from its competitors. Professional logo creates an impression of the company, emphasizing its position and individuality. A well-thought-through logo design will be memorable, attract clients’ attention and as a consequence help to increase sales.
The human brain pays attention to visual graphics. This is why it is so much easier to remember symbols. Just think about the last time you exchanged business cards at the networking event – the chances are you only remember the card with the brightest colour or a bold logo design symbol.

Do you know what kind of logo design are you looking for?
Every business needs a unique logo. In the process of logo development, your designer will help you to decide what type of logo you may be looking for.
Logo design for a business can be defined as:
Symbolic logo design
Text – logotype or wordmark
Alphanumeric logo design
Symbolic logo design
Symbolic logos are the most popular among brands. This category can be identified by the bold, elegant, unique and memorable icon.
The abstraction evokes emotions and associations. Our brains are wired to remember pictures better than words and attach meaning through emotion. Symbolic logos are paired with a font that compliments the logo mark.
Wordmark logo design
Text logos are also called logotypes or wordmarks. This category uses company name initials or full name as a basis for the design. The challenge for this type of logo is to make it distinctive enough in shape, weight and style. Usually, a lot of attention goes into a selection of a unique typeface or even creating a wordmark from scratch.
Alphanumeric logo design
An alphanumeric logo combines numbers, letters and symbology. This category falls somewhere in between the wordmark and an icon logo.
Hiring a professional designer for your logo design project will be one of the best decisions for your business. An experienced specialist will guide the design process to ensure your business core values are communicated and recognized in your local Vancouver market or internationally.
How to design a perfect logo?
There are many factors to consider when designing a custom logo. The process should always start with learning about the business, the target audience, and the competition.
After that, the sketching process begins. Once the designer has a general idea of what the logo needs to communicate, rough drafts are presented to the client for review. If the client likes the direction the designer works on refining concepts for the next round of logo presentation.
After the client has chosen the favourite, the designer then moves on to finalize the logo.
The main framework to create a successful brand logo design includes the following:
Concise & clean concept
The logo has to identify, not illustrate
Unique & bold symbology
Appropriate for the target audience
Simplicity is key
There is a great saying: “Make it simple – simple is hard enough”. When we refer to “simplicity” in a logo, we do not mean “plain” – we mean effective use of negative space, typeface(s), and colour palette to convey a message. Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good design – after much thought has been given to solving the problem at hand.
