Kore 10 Tips for creating a great logo

Brand Identity
The main purpose of you logo is to identify your brand. It takes
thought and creativity to design a simple and unique logo that would convey your core message and differentiate your brand from others. Your logo should be immediately recognizable, imply superiority, convey your style of business, and inspire trust, admiration, and loyalty.

Appropriateness
How you position your logo should be appropriate for your intended audience. For instance, use a formal font if you target people seeking a legal advice, and a colorful child-like font if you target kids and their parents.

Differentiation
The combination of shapes, images, colors, and fonts should be strikingly different from other logos, especially in the same market niche.

Simplicity
Simplicity works: simple logos are easier to remember; simplicity can communicate neatly your
competitive advantage whatever it is ‒ strength, flexibility, innovativeness or something else.

Associations
Your logo doesn’t need to describe what your business does. Make you logo metaphor light. Reflect your business’s commercial brand through the use of shape, fonts, colors, and / or images. For instance, the font can convey a sense of dignity, happiness, stability, or whimsy. Colors are also strong
emotional and memorable differentiators and can be a great way to communicate if used purposefully. If you want to bring together many colors for symbolic purposes, do it harmoniously.

Intuitive Energy Flow
If you want to emphasize growth, energy should flow intuitively from bottom left to top right. If you want to emphasize
customer care, energy should flow inside out.

Versatility
You logo should work on large or small formats, on different materials, and be readable on or adaptable for both dark and light backgrounds. The fewer colors you use the better. Make your logo web-friendly, easily translated into a Web button or icon. Use very simple, elegantly drawn lines or shapes.

Longevity
Ideally, logo should never be changed.  It should stay the same over time. So be aware of trends but don't yield to them. Go for timelessness. Longevity in logo design is key.

Memorability
Strive to be different. Keep your logo design simple, distinctive, clear, and appropriate to make it memorable.

Sketch, Reflect, Revise
Start from white paper ‒ similar to
experimentation, sketching helps to put ideas in your head right on paper and evolve your imagination. Take breaks to help your ideas mature, solicit feedback, and get a fresh perspective on your work. Revise and improve the logo as required.

Focus on Emotional Drivers

   

    

“A logo is a flag, a signature, an escutcheon, a street sign.
A logo does not sell (directly), it identifies.
A logo is rarely a description of a business.
A logo derives meaning from the quality of the thing it symbolizes,
not the other way around.
A logo is less important than the product it signifies;
what it represents is more important than what it looks like.
The subject matter of a logo can be almost anything.”
~ Paul Rand
