Your Logo PUBSCAPE Designed?
of logos in front of you, how do you choose a logo that's right
for your business?
first define the word “pubscape”
from the "2003 Dictionary of Notwordsyet" by Mediamage Marketing Solution."
1. To publish
an effective, unique, and professional logo supported by a purpose,
which is branded in an appealing, consistent and scalable business
So how does
one make sure that their logo is a Pubscape
Logo? You just follow the simple steps below:
What is the main purpose behind having a logo? If you are a church
maybe your reason would be “Our logo signals a fresh perspective
on our passion for God. The cross signifies the sacrifice of Christ
for our salvation. The flame symbolizes the Spirit’s presence,
peace and power.” Every logo needs a beginning reason for
existence. What is yours?
What makes your logo help you stand out from the crowd? For example,
if everyone in your industry uses a familiar picture (i.e., plumbing
companies often use wrenches in their logos), you should use something
different so that your logo is remembered.
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of
a bunny head with two ears and a bow tie around it's neck?
Of course, Playboy. Branding is more than just ensuring that customers
recognize a logo or product name. Branding means creating an emotional
association (such as the feeling of success, happiness, or relief)
that customers form with the product, service, or company.
Your logo needs to look good wherever it is be it on your letterhead,
a billboard, the back of your truck or tattooed onto the shoulder
of your arm. Legibility is important and it must be readable so
choose a font for your logo with your designer wisely.
Do the same thing over and over again to instill it in another’s
subconscious. Repetition in use of your logo, tagline, and materials
will help people to remember who you are and what service you provide.
Choose your colors wisely when deciding which ones to use. Read
our article on choosing colors for your business. Colours speak
their own language and evoke emotions instantly. Also take note
that most logos are shown in black & white so take contrast
into consideration as well.
Like dressing in a business suit to make that sale, make sure your
logo is promoted on quality printing materials. This is not a time
to choose a budget printing company since you don't want to be represented
as a non-professional.
Logos tell others about the distinguishing characteristics of your
business. Does your logo represent your company well and will it
sell your product for many years to come?
companies do not invest in a Pubscape
logo. But, a Pubscape
logo, with the right characteristics, will result in others remembering
you and inturn means more business for you!
