Create a logo that speaks to your expertise
You take your business seriously, and want others to as well. The best way to start making this vision a reality is to have a strong logo. A well-designed logo leaves a professional impression on prospective and current clients in fewer than five seconds — before face-to-face communication even starts.
Getting the perfect logo for your business isn’t difficult. Follow these simple steps to create your own logo:
1. Assess yourself — and your competitors.We’ll get into common styles below, but first take a look at competitors’ logos. Look for what works well and things you want to avoid.
2. Then start browsing logo templates. The template you pick should tell the story of who you are and what you do, and it invites the viewer to make contact. Look for simple designs and subtle colors to show your serious side. This isn’t the time for flowery, full-color designs. Consider templates that put a relevant graphic next to your text or behind your company name.
3. Next, consider fonts. Don’t undercut your professionalism with playful or lackadaisical typefaces like Addled or Bubblegum Sans. Rather, complement your design with a font that tells people to trust and take you seriously. Fonts appropriate for the business and consulting industry include Helvetica, Sensation Light and Special Elite. These indicate stability, reliability and respectability — excellent choices for many consulting businesses. Be cautious if using scripted fonts; if too frilly, they can miss the mark on elegance and end up seeming whimsical or unfocused.
4. The last item of business: color. The colors you choose affect how people perceive your brand. Blue is very common in business logos (think HP, Visa, GE and IBM) because it conveys Intelligence and efficiency. Black says sophistication and security, while red adds strength and warmth. Other colors may be appropriate as well, but understand the feeling you want people to take away when they see your logo.
Making your own logo is a small time investment that pays dividends. Once you’ve got the elements of your logo just the way you want, you’ll be amazed by its professional reach. Let your logo communicate with clients so that when you meet, you can get straight to work.
