I am not a logo designer; rather, I am The Logo Handler. Although I have created a few logos in the past, this is not my strong suit. I am entrusted with printing and marketing clients' logos. I can't make you a beautiful logo, but I can tell you right away if the logo will cause you problems. The majority of my professional life has been spent working with corporate logos. Some logos are good, while others are bad. Despite their aesthetic appeal, they present numerous printing challenges.

When starting out, one of the biggest mistakes people make is not giving their designer much to work with. They locate a designer, provide them with the business name, and instruct them to create a logo. Most of the time, no further instructions are given. There might be some preferred colors or a few suggestions for a possible symbol, but that's all. The owner of the company makes the assumption that the designer is familiar with the requirements and limitations of logo design Dubai UAE. About half of the logos I've seen so far have only a focus on aesthetics. While having a logo that looks good is important, there are many other things to think about that will be important in the future.

CHOOSING A DESIGNER!

Despite the fact that it may be tempting to use a friend or family member who dabbles in graphic design—who are typically free or very cheap—the logo almost always ends up costing you later. You are more likely to have problems with design egos and run into delays. Additionally, they may lack the technical expertise (bitmaps versus vector, bleeds, etc.). This is less of a problem with best logo design in Dubai UAE, but it can be a big problem with other projects. However, you should not discredit these individuals. A lot of great work has been produced by people who design as a hobby or as aspiring designers.
  • Regardless of where you find your logo designer, check their portfolio and make sure they meet these two requirements:

1. Find a designer who will make a vector logo for you. Get another designer if they are unable to. On the off chance that they don't have the foggiest idea what a vector realistic is, don't recruit them!

2. Make certain that you will receive the following documents:
  • The first (vector) document from the program the logo was planned in.
  • A logo (vector) as a PDF.
  • A logo image (vector).
  • Three high-resolution jpg of the logo, one each of 2 inches, 12 inches, and 24 inches.
Even though the first three files probably don't have a program that can open them, make sure you have them on a disc in your office and on your computer. These files are needed by designers and printers in the future. For more information on the distinction between bitmap and vector images.

LOGO Plan Rules!

Notwithstanding a logo that looks great and seems OK for your business, ensure your originator keeps these rules. Color, size, and shape are all things to keep in mind when designing for them, so you should do the same:

Colors!

A logo's colors play an important role. You should try to keep colors separate, avoid shading, and use as few colors as possible. You shouldn't have any problems printing digital graphics in full color. Computerized printers print designs very much like your variety inkjet or laser printer. Digital printing is generally expensive and not always available for items other than paper.

It's possible to save money by using fewer colors. Each color will increase the cost of apparel, promotional product, and signage printing applications. Set-up and run costs typically apply to promotional products per color. Each color of screen printing will also cost more. Create a logo that can be used in a single color or with one or two colors.
Issues may arise if color registration is too tight. Tight registration occurs when your colors touch. A good example is text with an outline around it. This is not always possible with promotional items that are silk screened or pad printed. If you're photocopying something in black and white, tight registration can also be a problem. When photocopied, two completely distinct colors can appear to be the same color and become a large black blob. Keep away from tight enrollment or have a rendition of the logo that doesn't have tight enlistment for these circumstances.

It is not always possible to print color fading or shading. The majority of non-digital printing applications produce solid color prints. In the event that you have a strong variety that blurs or shades into a hazier variety or one more variety you will require a changed form of your logo.

Colors made to order can be pricey. Standard ink colors found in printers include black, red, navy, royal, dark green, and yellow, among others. To mix a particular color for you, the majority of printers will charge a fee. Special logo’s things are additionally principally accessible in standard tones. In the event that you chose greenish blue for your logo and need to find a greenish blue pen for your organization, you would be exceptionally restricted in your determination.

Size!

Size Text or lines that are too thin or small can "disappear" when printed or photocopied, making them ineffective. If the smaller parts of a lower case "e" or "an" are too small, they can also fill in. When selecting your logo, ensure that it can be reduced to a width of one inch or less. The smallest size your logo will likely be printed at is one inch.

Shape!

Shape is much more than just a horizontal or vertical design. White space is something that shape needs to take into account. Design elements that are too far removed from the main design should be avoided. If you want to print your logo in a small space but have a lot of unusable white space, you may not have enough room for the contact information you want to include. See the picture below. Consider how the logo will appear when paired with your website or address. Request that your address block be placed next to the logo, just like it would be on a business card or letterhead.
 

A crucial note regarding the various versions:

None of these guidelines should cause you to feel constrained. For instance, a logo that resembles contemporary graffiti would probably violate all of the aforementioned guidelines, but if that's what you want, you should have it. Simply request modified versions from your designer that can be printed in a single color or with fewer spaces. I've seen businesses with booklets of ten pages and dozens of logo variations that can be used for a variety of purposes. Get ready.

Ponder variety, size and shape while planning and choosing your logo. Additionally, you should have distinct versions for various applications. Check to see that the appropriate files are saved for printing. Keep in mind that the most well-known and easily recognizable logos are simple and limited in color. Make adjustments to it until you get the perfect logo. Take ownership of it and make sure your logo is visible!
