Creating a logo - The Basics!

A logo or logotype, is a unique design, which represents a company, association, institution ... It defines the company, its values and its targeted market/audience.

It consists of two distinct elements: the graphic and language .

Getting started

Three questions you should ask yourself before getting to the drawing board:
  • In which sector your company/business operates.
  • The target audience (demographics)
  • The values to be transmitted.

Once these answers obtained, you can proceed to the drawing phase:
  • The colours to be used.
  • The dominant forms (curves, graphics ...)
  • The font to be used.
