Creating Your Logo:

259906910_dc8b84eb6f_m.jpgOften, your logo is the first thing to make an impression on potential clients. This alone makes it a must to have an eye-catching and memorable design.

There are a few rules of logo design that many designers agree upon. David Airey, graphic designer, outlined the four major rules:

1. The logo must be memorable.
2. The logo must be describable.
3. The logo must be just as effective in black-and-white as it is in color.
4. The logo must be scalable down to a quarter-inch in size.

These rules ensure that potential clients will be able to remember (and describe) your logo after seeing it once and that your logo will work on any number of collateral or design projects of all shapes and sizes.

Take a look at some corporate logos that won the 2006 Best of the Best contest for logo design. Do these logos fit the four rules above? Or do some interpret the rules differently, and, if so, why do they still work?
