In a nutshell, a logo is the face of your brand. It is an instantly recognisable symbol. When customers notice your logo, they know exactly who and what you are. Take for example the Nike logo, the ‘swoosh’ – instantly recognisable, memorable, and unique conveying the company’s sporting ethos.

First Impressions Count
First impressions are everything in business. The majority of the time we look at a business from the outside. This is to establish weather or not we will take the next step and go in or purchase from them. A professionally designed logo guarantees a professional look and reflection of your core principles. Your logo should appear on all your business stationery, business cards, products, company vehicles, and signage.
A trap some companies fall into is how they use their logo and altering original colours or placement. Another trap is when companies decide to create “mini-branding” or “sub-branding”. This means creating new logos and looks for each new service.
On completion of a logo, the designer provides brand identity guidelines for its use and placement. This ensures maximum impact from the identity and keeps your branding consistent across your products and services. These simple guidelines provide and maintain a very powerful company image. The result, your company creating a strong and lasting impression for its products / services.
Your entire company is your brand, not just a product or specific service.
