The 14 crucial questions designers should ask a client before creating a logo

September 24th, 2015

Any custom logo design company worth its salt will tell you that the key to creating a successful logo is good communication with the customer. In order to provide the client with a variety of logos to choose from, it is very important for a designer to understand said client’s preferences. The only way to accomplish this is to ask the right questions, such as…

1.       What is the name of your company? This one is obvious enough. Often, the name of the company will play a major role in deciding what will be represented on the logo – sometimes, the name itself is the logo. Even if that is not the case, the name of the company is incorporated into the logo more often than not. Even the simple question of whether the company’s name is long or short plays a major role in deciding the type of logo to be created.

2.       Which words in the company name do you want to emphasize? If the company name consists of multiple words, the client may not wish to give equal billing to all of them, especially since that might make an unnecessarily bloated logo. Some words will be made to stand out while others will be given minimal priority.

This is why colors may look different from one monitor to another.

How To Create a Logo: Part 2 – The Concept

October 26th, 2010

Saint Cross Medical logo design













In part 1 of this blog post series, we looked at the process of developing a brief for a graphic logo design project. Asking the right questions in order to build up a scope for the project is a crucial first step for the graphic designer, who needs to obtain enough information about the company, its values and the image it wishes to portray, to be able to develop a striking and instantly recognizable logo. There inevitably comes a point in this process however, where the designer needs to start actually designing, so what happens next? While each graphic designer has their own modus operandi, the design process generally starts with a good old fashioned sketch. Forget your Photoshops and your Illustrators for the time being, a graphic designer’s real best friend at this stage is a 2B pencil and a piece of paper.
