Designing an effective logo is not a quick or easy process. It requires research, thought, care and attention to ensure that the final logo is addressed to the correct market and communicate the right message and values. A poorly designed logo will have a negative effect on the perception of your business, but a carefully designed logo will be able to turn a business or a start-up, attracting right people and the customers.

Below I’ve prepared an overview of the accuracy of the logo design process that I apply to my projects, which in my opinion, has the best and most effective results to help boost the potential of your business or product.

3 DESIGNING THE IDEAS

When I work on an identity design I use techniques which result in group good ideas. This typically is an organic process, and can vary from project to project. I will sketch any idea that comes in my mind to explore its potential soundness and its further development in the project.

After having explored the idea I will start to work on the sketch with the software Adobe Illustrator. It’s a program of vector drawing which allows that the logo design is scalable without losing the quality of the image even of large dimension.
Once a good number of sketches are ready I will not work on the already developed ideas for at least two days. This period is necessary to take into consideration new ideas and to go back to the initial sketches with a richer prospective. Then I examine again all the realized sketches to select the most suitable ones to be presented, refining the works where necessary.

4 PRESENTATION OF THE LOGO SKETCHES

Once the sketches are ready I will create a PDF document showing all the necessary variations and including a rough idea of the entity design. The logo will be presented in various dimension and styles, with or without slogan, in different colours (and all the references to codes, colours and PANTONE).
These graphic sketches will be those that I will consider as the most suitable to your business. The final choice will be yours and naturally there will be no limits to the applicable changes and improvements, till the attainment of the desired logo.
