Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharing a vision, part of Foundations of Logo Design.
When you present a logo, you're telling a big picture story.…You want to frame the narrative so you paint a clear vision of where your client…can go, and how the new logo can play a part in taking them there.…You want them to capture the same vision, embrace it.…And get excited about the new possibilities it provides their business…so that they can elaborate on the vision and truly make it their own.…If all you're doing is creating visual choices and saying to your client, here…you go pick one. Then you're leaving the client on his own…to interpret what a design may mean and that's asking for trouble.…
