How important is your company logo? Branding matters.

Your logo is the brand, or identity, of your company. Your brand should be strong.  You need it to convey a message and feeling that represents what you and your company stands for.  A company logo is one of, if not the most crucial branding components for a company.  Your logo defines the company strongly, and should be one that grabs the consumers’ attention and sticks for good. It could be the deciding factor in a potential customer choosing to become a new and loyal client.

While a complicated logo may offer a more attractive or memorable design, that isn’t always the way it works.  Many major, memorable logos are quite simple, like those of many products and brands recognized worldwide.  Some of the most memorable do not even contain the company’s name, like Nike and Apple.

Also important to logo design is who you are targeting as customers.  You should be sure your branding speaks to the right groups of people.  Knowing your client demographics and being able to target exactly the customers you seek can take your branding efforts to a new level.

Equally important to your success is knowing your competitors.  What makes you a different, better choice?  Why should potential customers decide you are the best choice?  You need to make your company stand out. Your logo should not look similar to your competition enough that it could be mistaken for your competitor.  People see and react to colors and shapes before words, so the choices you make in logo design needs to utilize colors, shapes, and fonts that convey the right image.

There are many things to take into consideration when deciding how to create successful branding.  If you’re looking for assistance with these decisions, make sure you hire a true branding professional to help. An unprofessional logo can hurt your company, tearing down trust in your company and stopping potential consumers from choosing your company. A professional can help make these important decisions about typography, fonts, colors, shapes, and more.  When you embark on company or product branding, always remember – Better branding = Better business!
