Reasons Why Graphic Designers Should Be Designing Your Custom Logos

“A picture is worth a thousand words

Custom logos are more than an appealing picture on products and signs. The most iconic logos are timeless, embody the company’s values, and are versatile. Companies with iconic logos such as Coca-Cola, Apple, Nike, etc. have decided it’s worth it to invest millions into their logo design.

Having a logo designed for companies doesn’t have to be worth millions, however, it is important to have them designed correctly the first time. Companies have attempted to redesign their logos too late in the game and caused outrage, huge losses in sales, and a decrease in brand loyalty.

GAP is a perfect example of a company that attempted to redesign their logo and failed horribly. In 2010, GAP changed its logo to a new logo that cost an estimated $100 million to redesign. However, in less than a week, GAP was forced by online backlash to change back. Therefore, it’s important to be intentional and thoughtful when creating a logo for your company and with whom you trust to design it. 

Now, the question that comes to mind is, who are the best people to trust to design your company’s logos? None other than professional graphic designers, of course, and here’s why..

Businesses Need More Than One Logo

You’ve probably heard the phrase one-size-doesn’t-fit-all and this is true in the case for logos as well. One design of your business logo should not be and neither can it be used universally. Whether the logo is for digital or physical purposes, your business needs variations of the same logo or responsive logos. A logo on your social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter isn’t guaranteed to be compatible on places such as on your storefront sign or on your business’ products. Similar to having the perfect picture only to have it awkwardly cropped or not be the correct file type when attempting to upload it online. An awkwardly cropped logo, incorrect file type and employees scrambling to fix it is exactly what you want to avoid happening.

Different variations of logos for your business you will need:

  • Main Logo: a design adopted by an organization to identify its product or service
  • Logo Variation: a version of your main logo in an alternate color or orientation
  • Logo Submark: a less detailed version of your logo in a smaller size, style, or shape

Different file types:

  • Vector files: made of equations and lines and can scale to any size while still holding the same image quality and resolution.
  • Raster files: made of pixel data that have the ability to be very detailed and have a wide variety of colors.

Masters of bringing your vision to life

Creating a professional and quality logo requires two essential things: the vision and the skill to execute it. Have both the vision and the graphic skills to execute it? Great! However, if you have no expertise in using Illustrator and plan on using programs such as Canva to design logos, then you might want to reconsider. Canva lacks the variety of tools that Illustrator has available to create designs and the result may be unsatisfying no matter how many times you revise and tweak the design.

Effective at creating a brand identity

The importance of an appealing and professional logo design cannot be understated. A well-designed logo can easily make or break your brand identity. Crafting a strong brand identity with your logo can be crucial to having consumers choose your product.

Consider this..

A consumer, let’s call her Sarah, enters a grocery store with the intent of purchasing a specific product. After browsing through the shelves, Sarah finds herself overwhelmed by the vast number of options. However, she narrows her decision down to two products with similar product features. In under a minute, she chooses between the two, returns the other product, and heads to the register to complete her shopping experience.

How did she decide between the two? Simple. She chose the design with the superior logo. In today’s society where consumers have so many choices to choose from, it’s essential to have a strong brand identity to come out on top. A logo can be the fine line between whether your product takes off or fails.
