What makes a great logo & how can I get one? 

Your logo provides a cornerstone to your business. When we work with a client developing a new business concept, their logo is always our first port of call when setting up their marketing strategy.

All creative decisions stem from the brand identity, so it’s a process that needs to be taken very seriously. The company logo sets the tone for the business, forms a colour palette to work from and is the identity many new customers will engage with, it will help form the emotions and presumptions they associate with your company.

Is your business fun and relaxed, or serious and to the point? Does your logo need to incorporate a URL, what is the ‘personality’ of your brand?

Your logo creation involves talking through these key points and if you’re not exactly sure what you’re after, these conversations help to identify what’s at the heart of your desires for your company logo.

As seasoned veterans in marketing, we take the time to sit with you and talk through these issues, some you may have never considered. There are also necessary considerations when creating your logo, it must work on both a light and dark background and ensuring the design is made as a vector, allowing your logo to scale from small print (e.g. your business cards) to the web to billboards, this will set you up for future growth.

A great logo answers these questions and many more.

Being a defining part of your business the logo creation process is something we take very seriously and develop a perfect solution.

One of the great secrets to success is, our designers are classically trained artists.
