Why is Logo Design Important?

Having a good logo design is an integral part of making your brand a successful one – right up there with having high-quality products and positive referrals. It grabs attention, makes a strong first impression. It’s memorable and separates you from competition.

Successful branding is about telling a story that will influence customers’ emotions – plain and simple. While it is true that logo design is only a part of a company’s brand, it serves as the foundation for the entire narrative on which the brand is built. Colours, tones, fonts – all of this is determined by the story that you’re trying to tell, and your logo sets the stage for this story. These elements will later translate from your logo onto all of your branding materials – letterheads, business cards and website creating a concrete, marketable brand identity.

Logos are a point of identification; they’re the symbol that customers use to recognize your brand. Ideally, you’ll want people to instantly connect the sight of your logo with the memory of what your company does – and, more importantly, how it makes them feel. Because a good logo is a visual, aesthetically pleasing element, it triggers positive recall about your brand that the name of your company alone might not. As your brand grows, your logo is going to become more familiar to a wide range of consumers, and this familiarity creates the perception that you’re trustworthy and accessible.

Your logo is the first thing that your audience will look for when they see any communications from your brand. It should be front and center of all your marketing materials such as business cards, flyers, advertisements, etc.

If you don’t have a logo (and one that stands out), then you are missing an opportunity to make your business stick in the minds of your audience.
