Your Logo: Much More Than a Decoration

Logo DesignLogo DesignWhat are the company logos that you remember the most? As you are about to design your corporate identity, take a look around and notice the logos that are all around us. Most of the time, they are very simple icons. Sometimes they graphically represent exactly what the company does, but others are a simple mark that makes an impression. Here are some tips to help you get a memorable corporate identity of your own:

1) Find a Designer You Can Trust

First of all, you need to find someone that truly understands the importance of the creation and implementation of a company’s identity.

Many pre-press operators have complained about having to correct graphic designers work. To have a file prepared incorrectly can have drastic financial, and emotional consequences, for the owner. The time needed to rectify the problem can cause major delays, and additional expense. This is due to the graphic designer's understanding that his job is done, when he produces the design that you require.

It is therefore necessary for a graphic designer to understand the basic principle of what you see on screen, may not be the same when it comes off the press. A designer should know how to correctly build a bleed; check that the panels fold correctly; and that colour separation is well understood. The list goes on and on. If these issues are not properly addressed, the customer will most likely pay for additional costs, because a print house, or service provider,will definitely charge extra for fixing the problem.
