The purpose of the logo is clear – it increases awareness and recognition in society, the awareness about the brand, identity, and its message. There are certain rules, techniques on how to create a great logo. FlowMapp is going to show you that.

Principles of Good Logo

Several criteria define the logo that will be actual forever. Here they are:

 

Principles of Good Logo

Simplicity

Simplicity is crucial for the logo design because it allows the viewers to memorize it. If a person can remember the logo of the brand, they will be able to remember the brand as well. A great logo features a unique quality without overwhelming it.

Easy to Remember

Another feature of a hot logo is its ability to get memorized. It is the second important feature because it also depends on simplicity. For a logo to be good, it also should be distinctive and clear.

Out of Time

Timeless design is something we all are looking for. The logo should be created to be actual for decades. Of course, some correctives can be applied to it over time, but if the main idea is the same – the logo is timeless.

Functional

It is also important for the logo to be functional. This kind of logo has to word through many media: printed, digital – it should look perfect everywhere. You should be able to scale the logo and reverse it.

Appropriate

Of course, a logo should be appropriate. For example, you can't use childish font when designing a logo for a financial consultant. It would seem weird. The product that is sold by the company should not be placed at the logo, don't take it too literally.

  • Divergent letters are another logo trend of 2021. Though there is not much of a space if the company name is literal, the designer can make it memorable as well.
  • Portraits for a logo is a hot trend of 2021. If you have a family business or would love the business to be associated with a person, do that!
