Logo Design Blog

You are a logo designer adept at creating a nice way for companies to show off who they are to others. That is why you might be in demand when it comes to putting together high-quality logo design for others.

All this sounds like a really good idea on paper, but the problem remains a financial one. Just what do you charge for your services?

Valentine’s day is around the corner and many of us are thinking of ways to show our appreciation for our loved ones. People all over the world get busy buying flowers, chocolate and other gifts to show their appreciation. As designers we are probably involved with creating various promotional materials related to this holiday.

Hey all. Did you miss me? I missed seeing the beautiful, witty logo creations you guys are up to. Yesterday, I took the day to get in the mood of blogging here again. I was mesmerised by the fun work I saw on The Logo Mix. On the other hand I missed writing here. That is why I am back to you with new stuff, which I hope you will find concise, informative and helpful. 

Like any intellectual property, a logo design can be trademarked and copyrighted. This protects a logo from being copied or reused without the owner's permission. Depending on the type of logo, the proper required legal protection could be a copyright or a trademark. In some case, both are needed to ensure full legal protection. In any case, here is what you need to do to ensure that your logo design is legally your design.

Logos play and extremely important part in business and brand identification.  They often serve as the first communication for customers and are easily recognizable, some so much so that they are now synonymous with the companies.  For a small business looking to buy a logo design, it may be difficult to know what they should expect to pay.  Because every logo is unique, it's almost impossible to put a price tag on them and while some companies like Pepsi pay up to $1,000,000 for logo re-design, others like Google paid $0 for the original design.  However, there is some information small businesses will find useful in terms of gaging the pricing when they are ready to buy a logo.

Do you believe in luck? Well, I do. Let me explain why… I believe in luck because I really feel lucky. I get to work on various design projects and I just feel really, really lucky. Is this an objective statement? I highly doubt it.

One of the secrets of being a good logo designer is to get inspired by other people’s logo work. As one famous author put it: “It usually helps me write by reading – somehow the reading gear in your head turns the writing gear.” (Steven Wright)
