6 Attributes of Good Logo Design

Von Glitchka at work designing logos

Although there are many stylistic approaches to logo design, there are certain fundamental attributes that make a logo successful.

It’s unique It’s no secret that our world is being flooded with more images, tweets, articles, books, designs etc. every minute, so creating a unique design has never been more important. Although there are times when the creative fairy blesses us with an inspired design, more often than not great designs are hard earned. Proper research, intelligent creative thinking, and a lot of exploratory drawing should be part of your creative process every time.

It’s memorable Making a connection with your viewer and staying with them is an important part of effective logo design. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways: being unique, keeping it simple, using a clever concept or play on a business’ name, making an emotional connection with your viewer, and more.
