Research to get in front of the perfect customer

Any brand development has to start with researching the perfect customer for your business. Finding out who is likely to buy from you from the outset will pay dividends to your brand building later on.

Tip : Know who you're selling to?

The truth is, if you don't know who you want to sell to, what sex they are, their habits, ages, hobbies, then how can you design anything that might attract that sort of client.

Do you see where I am going with this? An extreme example would be trying to sell insurance that helps people of a certain age with funeral costs so that the family isn't left with a huge bill by designing a rich colourful logo in a graffiti typeface . It would just be wrong and almost guarantee failure for that brand.

Everyone is a designer and why a logo design doesn't cost a fiver.

These days most people believe they are saving money by having a go at designing their own logo or leaflet for print. Like anything else, it takes time to learn how to design a brand or website, what works and what won't. Whatever you do in your business, if you're not a designer, I'm afraid you just are not a designer and will make costly mistakes early on.

Good design is made up of many elements and a designer can and will have an explanation for each and every one of these "bricks" that build a good brand mark.

Colours help your brand connect with consumers on a deeper psychological level. When you choose the colour palette for a brand you are also choosing the emotions and association that you're seeking to evoke.

Picking the right colours will help establish your identity and add versatility to your designs and future campaigns and promotions. See some examples of colours and the reaction they might evoke below.

Typefaces - fonts... but not Comic Sans...never...Comic Sans

We could go on for days about typefaces and why making the right choices when considering a logo or a brand guide for your business. Do you need serif, sans serif, decorative, heavy, light superlight....the list is endless, then consider leading, kerning in your copy it becomes a bit of a nightmare for the beginner but a professional logo designer will know exactly what is needed.

What makes a logo good?

A good logo is usually one of the following

I can get a logo for a fiver?

Yes you certainly can but what are you really getting? I hear people say they love their business like they love their child "it's my baby" ! So why would you try and save money on the one thing that gives the best first impression of your business? If done properly a logo design will consist of client brief, research, sketching, concepting, reflection, revision, presentation, delivery and support. This all takes time and it isn't that time you are usually paying more for, it's the years of experience the designer brings to the project.

How much does a logo cost?

There is no set price for a logo as there are a lot of factors to be considered. The size of the company is one, a large corporation will not have the same needs as a one man plumbing business.

Initially we give clients a branding questionnaire before we quote.

The list below will give you an idea of how pricing works for brand logo design.

How not to get burned finding a logo designer

  1. Look through previous work and look for strong portfolios of jobs completed
  2. Look for reviews online http://bit.ly/brandingexpertreviews
  3. Stay away from bargain freelance designer sites - a lot of designers on these sites won't put in a full creative process and copied logo versions are adjusted and sold to you as unique and it kills the industry for honest designers. They usually offer very cheap services which is great initially but there is nothing more expensive to a business than bad design decisions.
  4. Reverse image searches, Google's reverse image search is a breeze on a desktop computer. Go tocom, click the camera icon, and either paste in the URL for an image you've seen online, upload an image from your hard drive, or drag an image from another window.
