Rearview Lead Designer Kristen Oehrig has created hundreds of logos throughout her career, and in all that time she has hit upon what makes a logo design truly successful. Today we share her advice on how to design a great, lasting logo that can define your brand – and in turn, make your business more memorable to potential customers.
Your logo is one of the most important elements of your brand. It’s the trademark that people recognize you by and how they learn what you stand for. Brand loyalty starts with a logo. This makes every aspect of your logo significant; from layout, patterns, color choice to typeface to iconography, every piece matters.
