Everyone knows how important a logo is to your identity and brand; every business, online and offline, requires a logo. A logo represents your company and products to potential customers.
Almost any designer can create a good logo, but it won’t necessarily be perfect. Creating an extraordinary logo requires a thorough design process. It should involve brainstorming ideas (either on paper or in digital format), incorporating standard logo elements, choosing appropriate typography, using colours correctly and—most importantly—making a few versions of the proposed logo in different fonts, colours and styles. Points of comparison will help you see which one is perfect.
The following are some businesses that have shared a peek inside their fascinating logo design process with the public.
