So many business decisions are a matter of simply pulling the trigger. As a business owner or organization leader, you generally know which moves would be good with the company and what changes need to be made. But it is hard to change what has been working for a long time, even if you think it will help. If your company has grown, expanded, and matured but its branding has remained the same through it all, a change is almost certainly in order. A good place to start is finding a proficient logo designer to get your brand image updated. To help you make the leap, here is what a good logo designer can do for you:
● By considering trends and audience and by using careful design strategies, your newly designed logo can change the perception of your business and brand. An outdated logo can easily set your brand back by making it look obsolete. The best brands in the world keep up with the styles and trends in marketing, and customers notice when your branding is a decade out of style. At the same time, a well made logo can create an impression for your brand; make it exciting, dynamic, friendly, trustworthy, natural, etc.
● Make it easy to design promotional materials and advertising by giving your branding more cohesiveness. A good logo designer will take your input and use their wealth of design experience to make a design and color palette that matches your company well. With the logo’s colors, fonts, and style determined, it will be easier to make advertisements and other printed materials that match and send the same message for your company.
● Make your company more recognizable from simple visuals. It is amazing how closely people associate brand images, fonts, and colors with a company. The Home Depot’s orange logo and stencil writing is unmistakable, even if the letters weren’t spelling out ‘The Home Depot’. The brown uniforms and gold lettering of UPS can be recognized a mile away. While your logo will likely never be as well known as the ‘Golden Arches,’ the more ways customers recognize your brand in the world, the more associations they will have with your company, and the more they will think of you first when they need your services.
Do not underestimate the value of a good logo designer. They are paid well for their services and are often fanatics about branding, all for good reason. The icon of your business is one of the first impressions you have with your audience, and first impressions are lasting.Posted in Print
