Your business' logo is at the heart of your brand. It's on everything. You'll use it everywhere. Good or bad, lots of people will remember it more easily than your business's name. Given all this, why would you risk your brand reputation by settling for a cheap, generic logo?
At Pearl Lemon Design we believe that every business deserves great logo design. That's why we've made the process of getting a great professional logo that represents your brand perfectly easy.
Why is Logo Design So Important?
A business logo is more than just a combination of symbols, letters, shapes, and colors. It’s not simply a graphic and/or typographic mark that identifies your organization. It's the first step in building a memorable brand that lasts.
Logos are nothing new, and, when done right, they can help maintain a connection to your clients and customers throughout your business's lifecycle. One of the most famous logos in the world, the Golden Arches - we don't even need to mention the business' name, do we? - has remained essentially the same since 1968. And because it was created with thought and care the McDonalds logo is recognized by billions of people across the globe, over 50 years since it was first introduced. Doesn't your business deserve the same? A Pearl Lemon Design logo can offer you that.
The Power of a Professional Logo Design
How powerful can a good business logo be? Actual scientists have spent a lot of time researching that question. And every time the answer has been more powerful than you would ever have thought.
Science has discovered that a good logo can do more than just help consumers remember your brand, it can change how they feel about your product. Researchers have found that the shape, size, and colors used in a logo - especially a product logo - can even affect their decision whether to buy or not. A logo has that much power.
Pearl Lemon Design's Logo Creation Process
At Pearl Lemon Design we understand the importance of great looking logo design, but also how important it is that a logo sends the right message as well. That's why we take the time to get to know what a business does, what it stands for and whom it wants to reach before we ever put pencil to paper.
To create a unique logo for a business of any kind you have to understand it. We make sure we do. How? We follow a tried and tested logo design process that we’ve perfected over the course of interactions with lots of satisfied clients:
Getting to Know You
This is a very important step in the professional logo design process. We'll talk with you and discuss not only what you hope to get from a new logo design but what your business does and what its values are.
More Industry Research
It's not enough to just understand a client's business, we want to understand the niche it operates in, its history, and the major competitors in the space.
The Pearl Lemon Design team gets together to conceptualize ideas and start making decisions on the possible design directions they can take.
We begin to sketch out logo design concepts around the design brief and the research that has been completed.
The design team elects the most promising logo design concepts and executes them digitally.
We’ll present logo design concepts to you. How many we offer varies from client to client, but you'll always have options.
Revisions / Approval
We want clients to love the logos we create. After we have presented the logo design options we'll work with you to narrow down the choices and decide on the best one.
Logo Design Delivery
With the logo design finalized it's executed in its final form and delivered to you in a number of sizes and formats. And don't worry, we'll always have copies backed up in case those files get lost somewhere down the line.
Logo Redesign Services
Maybe you already have a logo, but you think it might be time for a change. Redesigning a logo can be a great way to refresh a brand, but do it wrong and it can also be its downfall.
There are some circumstances when a logo redesign really makes sense:
Your company is shifting direction
A change in company direction is one major reason for a logo redesign. As a company evolves, its logo can quickly stop representing what the company actually does or stands for and consumers get confused.
Your logo looks dated
Brand history is important, but that doesn’t mean your logo should remain unchanged forever. Design norms change over time, and to stay relevant, your brand logo needs to adapt to those changing norms.
Your logo does not work for digital
If your logo is older it may be too complex to work properly in the digital space. That fancy, complex logo that has looked great on your signage and packaging for years my not translate well online.
Your company has outgrown its logo
Often, when a business is just starting up the money just isn't there to execute the best branding. So maybe you did opt for a logo from one of those cheap and easy logo makers. But now that your business is growing that cheap and cheesy logo is holding it back and it's time for something new, a logo design that represents how much your brand has grown and continues to grow.
Logo redesign is a risky business though. People have strong opinions about logos and branding. If you’re doing a logo redesign, work with a firm that has a clear process in place that ensures they understand your business and your culture and will work with you to design something that truly represents everything you want your brand to stand for. A company like Pearl Lemon Design.
