angles as possible. Sometimes the logo process is so obvious. The companies' products, services, values and business practices scream out and demand a look to convey the message. Other times, it's much more developmental, and the customer helps to develop the concepts as we go through the process.
Once we have many choices to view, the customer can then communicate the direction they feel best conveys the perception/branding of the company. We typically will go through 3 to 4 rounds of revisions and development to achieve a successful logo.
After the logo is developed, MARION Integrated Marketing will show the customer how this new mark will be used on stationery, signage, print advertising, web and promotional products. The new logo will be the launch pad for everything the business does. The logo affects the look and feel of everything. And with the proper implementation, the logo continues to get stronger over time.
Never underestimate the importance of a first impression. The impact of a logo that conveys professionalism and credibility is so powerful, it can mean the difference between the success of your business or that of your competitor.
If you feel that your logo design does not convey who you are, consider giving it a makeover. The new design does not have to be totally different, but can grow out of your existing logo. That way you retain what you have already invested in your brand and with a new look, show the world a new contemporary you. A revitalized logo can invigorate you, your employees and your business.
Logo design is one of the first building blocks in constructing your corporate identity, image and brand. A logo's design is also frequently the first impression your customers have of your company. For that reason alone, it is important that your logo design attracts attention, captures the essence of your business in a simple glance and leaves a lasting impression.
Over time, as you build your identity and brand, customers will associate the qualities of your company with your logo.
Now, take a moment and glance around your office or home. How many logos do you see? And what do these logos mean to you? You will note that logos are conveying more than just what the product or service the firm provides. If you look at a computer logo, the logo and branding represents more than just a computer. The logo and branding conveys a message about the computer product and the company associated with it. As a symbol, the logo conveys the quality of their products; you remember your experience with company, the quality of their service and whether or not you would order from them again.
