Branding isn’t Important, So Don’t Bother.

Just kidding, it’s super important.

Imagine if Zorro signed off with a colourful crayon instead of an awesome swish of a sword? No bandito would take him seriously.

Your brand should immediately define who you are and identify your business at a glance.

However, branding is more than just a sharp logo and an attractive colour scheme. Your brand represents the way you deal with your customers, the quality of your products and services and the impression you leave behind.

So you’ve got this awesome concept for a business, you’ve registered the name and you’re nearly ready to start rockin’ ‘n’ rollin’.

Now it’s time to design the face of your business — the logo. This is where all the fun sketching begins.

But where do you start?

As a general rule, a business logo design should be simple and easily recognisable. Your logo will play an integral role in all your marketing communications so it’s a good idea to spend some time creating a quality concept.Logo Design and branding

As a rule of thumb, if your business name is complicated or doesn’t really relate to the business area (for example a family name) then it’s a good idea to add elements to your logo that alludes to the business.

If your name says it all then you can experiment a little with a zany logo.

Your logo should reflect what you want your customers to feel when they see your branding.

The Science of Colour in Branding

In a study titled “Impact of Colour on Marketing” researchers found that up to 90% of snap judgments made about products can be based on colour alone. As previously mentioned, colour psychology is full of complexity and nuance and generalisations should remain just that — generalisations.

Colour can play an important role in marketing psychology and every good designer worth their weight knows what colours work, and what don’t.
