LogoBee creates logo design for Vienna Art Gallery

December 13th, 2007

The FPKK Przeczek & Seredynski KG art gallery in Vienna has just recently received a logo design created by LogoBee.  When one thinks about Vienna images of a rich cultural heritage, classical music and beautiful art usually come to mind.  That is why Tomasz Seredynski decided to take his passion for art there and establish an art gallery.  The gallery deals mostly in modern and contemporary art.  When he decided to get an artistic logo design for his gallery he turned to LogoBee for help.
The logo design for the FPKK Przeczek & Seredynski KG art gallery is very strong and concrete; but it is also simple and easy to remember.  These were reasons why Mr. Seredynski wanted this particular design.  He was happy with the colours used which are platinum/gold and black since these are associated with luxury.  Of course the logo design also contains hints of modern and abstract artistic styles since these are the art forms that the gallery deals in primarily.
Art is a passion and it can be one that takes up a lot of time.  For those who are serious about art it is usually something that will be prominent in their lives.  Mr. Seredynski spends most of his time around art.  He plans on taking part in the Vienna Art Fair during April of next year among other artistic events.  He would also like to host an exhibit for the artist Jan Niksinski, a Polish abstractionist.
LogoBee practices graphic art, which is a different medium than the type Mr. Seredynski deals with, but they keep themselves very busy as well.  The LogoBee team works with many clients for as long as it takes to create the perfect logo design to represent their business.  Mr. Seredynski mentioned how happy he was with his final logo design, but that it would not have turned out as good without the help of the LogoBee employees.  Speaking to customers and listening to their opinions is part of the reason why LogoBee can make so many artistic logo designs that are tailor made for various businesses.

What is marketing advertisement?

August 29th, 2006

Advertisement should start immediately after the company is created and you have decided on a unique name. The more people see your company's advertising, the more they will recognize its name. You want people to remember your company in a positive way. It is similar to making a first impression when meeting a person. So the first thing you have to work on is your name and your face. In the business world your company's logo is the name and face of the company. Its effectiveness is based primarily on your logo design.

The first and the most inexpensive way of advertisement, is face to face advertising. You say your company name to people who you meet so they remember you. Now if you want them to remember you for a longer time, an effective way could be to hand them your business card with your name phone number and address. This is the most common way of advertisement.

You can customize anything; letterhead, envelopes, even on a pens and mouse pads with your logo design on it! Promotional materials are endless, from a t-shirt to custom pins. All this is done for only one purpose, so that as many people as possible can see your logo and remember your company. There are many different ways to advertise your business. The most important thing is to be consistent. When people start recognizing your logo and associating this image to what your company is all about, this is called brand recognition.

Why is it important?

The idea is to create strong brand recognition. You want people to think of your service or product before they start opening the yellow pages and looking for someone else. If you walk by McDonalds you don't expect to find a hammer and nails. Even if your logo does not say "hamburger", people still know what the company sells. Advertising is meant to attract more customers, to win their trust and build stronger brand recognition.

SEO To trust or not to trust ?

July 14th, 2006

There are so many unethical SEO companies that claim to be able to boost your website to #1 in search engine rankings, however they use overwhelmingly aggressive marketing techniques and attempt to manipulate search engine results. This gives the industry a bad name.

The main problem with SEO companies is that they base their methods and techniques on research trial and error and speculation. As a result of the secretive indexing criteria of search engines, webmasters and SEO companies can only make an educated guess about the ranking systems and possible algorithm revisions.

Protecting your Corporate Identity

June 8th, 2006

Copyright infringement. How to cope with the rise of internet plagiarism

When it comes to corporate identity and logo design, copyright infringement has become an increasingly prevalent issue. As more and more small businesses find they need a logo to stay competitive, the demand has created a plethora of logo design firms that offer a variety of services from stock clipart images to custom design services.

However, because of the competitive nature of graphics design and the ease in which people have access to information, it has become difficult to ensure that a design remains the property of the respectful owner, and does not become duplicated by someone else. The ease in which an image or logo can be taken from the web and retraced is surprising, and there are even some that fail to realize that online content isn't simply 'public' domain. Therefore you should always be careful to properly document and trademark your logo design, Read the rest of this entry »

SEO Who do you trust?

May 6th, 2006

Internet search engines exist to organize the seemingly immeasurable amount of information available on the web. They direct people to pages that are relevant to their searches, pages that discuss the exact keywords they are looking for. For businesses that receive the majority of their clientele from search engines, search engine rankings can make or break their business.

Search Engines

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a marketing technique that enhances a website and its content in order to increase the chances of achieving a high rank the search engine result pages (SERPs). Search engines are very secretive about their criteria and ranking systems as they continuously update and revise their algorithms (mathematical formulas used to determine which web pages are displayed in search results), and therefore there is less likelihood of webmasters and search engine optimizers being able to achieve higher rankings by manipulation and spamming.

LogoBee Wins Top Honors for Color Logo Design Concept at the 2006 Summit Creative Awards

April 15th, 2006

award logo designPortland, OR - April 25, 2006 -- LogoBee.com got a big boost recently from the Summit Creative Awards, having won a prize for color logo design earlier this month. The annual awards event received submissions all around the world. Twenty-six different countries took home at least one prize in categories such as print, advertising, video production and graphic design. The complete listing of the awards winners can be found on the Summit Creative Awards website. LogoBee.com is an online company that focuses primarily on logo design corporate identity. For the awards event they submitted a project they had worked on for Southcentral Therapeutic Riding, Inc., a nonprofit horseback riding corporation based out of Chugiak, Alaska. The organization, also known as STRIDE provides riding lessons to children and adults with special needs and disabilities. "Many of our clients can't walk, so riding a horse is a tremendously empowering experience for them" said Wendy Givigliano of STRIDE. "One of our initial concepts was to have a logo design showing the horse and rider as one, and we also wanted to have the logo show how our horses can help our clients make giant strides toward better health and fitness." The logo designconcept was to portray the non-verbal connection that takes place between horse and rider, and its positive effect that is brought upon the human spirit. A seemingly easy task, but subtle when considering logo design elements. "I had a lot of fun with this design," said Anna Kuprieva, lead designer of the award-winning project. "The logo's spherical lines allow the horse and rider to be mirrored together, capturing the essence of the company's mission." Two years after having completed the logo design with LogoBee.com, the riding center continues to be a hit with its clients, and is even looking to expand its services. However, the horses require an extraordinary amount of money and effort to maintain and care for, and need continual financial assistance through non-profit donations. Visit their website for program and donation information.
