Key Takeaways:

I need a Logo – Where do I start?

At Technology Therapy Group, we are on a mission to empower start-ups and growing businesses just like yours to improve their digital know-how.

A question that start-ups often ask is, “I need a logo. Where do I start?”
In this 5-minute tutorial, TTG Founder and President Jennifer Shaheen will cover some key items to consider during the conceptualization phase of crafting your perfect logo.

Understanding What You Want

Before you start the logo development process, this is an excellent time to check in with yourself and your business to really understand what you want to represent and what will resonate with your audience – since it’s their loyalty you’re after! A solid understanding of your business and your goals will lay the foundation for a strong logo that will relay the right message to the world.

Get Inspired: How a Logo Breaks Down

Your logo is the visual figurehead of your brand identity. So, it’s essential to create a strong identity when starting your business. Every detail of your logo will influence your customers who see it. Nothing should be arbitrary, and therefore being intentional with your logo design is so important.

The 3 Basics

Here are three essential elements and tools you can use in your logo design to influence how customers view your brand.

1. The Font

Fonts are important, and the emotion generated from font choice is directly tied to the letters’ shape and our response to them. And the Google Fonts website has hundreds of free web fonts ready to be used and makes it easy for anyone to quickly select and utilize different fonts.

2. The Iconography (Icon)

Icons are a great way to visually illustrate any idea. And we love using The Noun Project, which gives you access to millions of high-quality icons. Plus, this add-on is free, which makes it perfect for start-ups that don’t know exactly what they want yet.

3. Color

Color is one of the main elements of design that elicit brand-appropriate emotions. Adobe Color is a fantastic tool that allows you to play around with color palettes and find inspirational ideas for your perfect logo.

Using these tools is a great way to design a logo yourself or just get what’s in your head outlined
