How to Start Your Logo Design Project
We plant 1 tree
every design project you start
We understand that getting a logo made can be an intimidating experience, and you might be a bit confused as to where to begin. But, luckily, DesignBro has developed an easy to use system that is sure to give you the best results. This step-by-step guide will show you the ins and outs of DesignBro to make sure you’re getting the most out of it. Sit back, and let’s get our logo project up and running!
1. Tell us your brand name, simple.
2. Identify the visual style that fits your brand
We’ll give you some inspiration so our designers can get a feel of what visual style works best for your brand. You can select 3 to 5 logo examples which you think are fitting best to what you’re looking for. Keep in mind that the more you fill in, the more our designers have to go off on. Have fun with it and consider the options based on what you would like your brand’s logo to look like.
3. Choose your brand DNA
Is your brand modern or traditional? Bold or refined? Playful or serious? We want to make sure the logo we provide best represents your brand. So, play around with the scale we’ve provided to narrow down your brand identity. Our designers will make sure to take this into account when creating your logo, and your choices here will already begin to create your brand’s new identity.
4. Tell us about your target audience
Who should love the logo? Tell us more about the people you’re trying to attract. Once again, use the scale to let us know whether your audience is feminine or masculine, youthful or mature, low or high income. Below the scale, don’t forget to fill in which countries you’re targeting. Our job? We’ll make sure whoever you’re seeking will love it.
5. Answer some final questions
Now that we’ve narrowed down the visual style you’re looking for, your brand’s identity, and the audience you’re targeting, we’re ready to tackle the brief. As you can see on the images below, these are very easy step-by-step questions. In case you need a little more explanation about what needed exactly please read the sections below.
Begin by letting us know if you already have a design you’d like to change. Showing us what you had before, and explaining why you’re ready to leave it behind lets us know the direction you’re looking to head in. Our designers benefit from understanding what you disliked about your previous design to know what to avoid.
Tagline, slogan or any additional text
A tagline, slogan or any addtional text can be a nice addition to a logo. We’ve all seen logos showing the year they were founded in or claims that they’re the best in the business. Once again, if this is something you’d like included in your own logo, fill it in!
Tell us about the brand
A company description is key in ensuring our designers understand your brand and what you do. Don’t be afraid to be loud and proud and let us know what it is that makes you special. Describe your product and how you got here. All the background you can give is sure to help our designers get a better grasp of your brand.
Let us see your competitors, and what you think of their design. If possible, it is a great idea to upload the logo of your competitor, share their website and rate their design. Let us know in the comments what you think about the design and where your brand stands in regards to your competitors.
Similarly, sharing designs that inspire you or that you think look great will further help our designers understand what it is you’re looking for. Investing time in pinpointing some designs that you love and sharing those is sure to save you time later on in the process, as it will give our designers a clearer vision for your logo.
If you have a specific color that you would like included in the design, feel free to include that as well. Use our tool to select specific colors, or enter them using your Pantone, RGB, CMYK or HEX code manually. However, keep in mind that our designers are experienced and are sure to grasp which colors are best suited for the design.
Ideas & requirements
We’ve included this section to ensure you have the opportunity to say anything else you need to say. Feel free to share ideas for the logo, express requirements, or add and clarify other aspects. Don’t be shy, as this is important for our designers to know what to do and what not to do concerning your logo.
Got something more to share that could help our designers understand better what you are looking for? this is the time! Additional documents can be anything. From styleguides to moodboards or even your own scribbles.
