Why is logo design important?
Businesses and other organisations need branding that gets results in today’s saturated design for print and digital design environments. Establishing, maintaining, and expanding the influence of your branding across multiple channels is vital for anyone fighting for their share of the market. Especially in highly competitive industries, a recognisable logo design, brand identity and creative branding can make all the difference.
Below we have provided answers to key questions related to brand identity and logo design Sydney. We explain how brand agency, Percept, develops solid branding strategy and cut-through creative branding. This applies for new companies or in the event of a rebrand, ensuring that everything works for our clients’ businesses, delivering tangible results.
What do we think makes an effective brand identity?
Percept is a brand agency in Australia, specialising in brand identity, so we know the importance of logo design as the public face of a company. To be successful, company logo design should be recognisable and in some cases, can achieve more recognition than the company name itself. Good branding design appropriately represents a business and conveys the essence of what their strategic branding is all about. If done well, this is all wrapped up in an easily grasped visual brand identity.
Effective company logo design can create an immediate and profound connection between a brand and its customers, clients and vital stakeholders.
Before beginning a brand identity project, professional logo designers in Sydney, especially in a strategic brand agency such as Percept, will consider many questions about what the company the logo design and brand identity will represent, for instance:
• What is the competitive landscape?
• What makes this brand special?
• What philosophy or set of values does the branding need to convey?
• What is the right combination of colour, image, text and style that will be relevant to the desired target audience?
• Is there an opportunity to disrupt the market with the new branding?
For the uninitiated, here’s a little information from Sydney brand agency, Percept, that will help you to know your “marks” when it comes to brand identity. Logo design comes in various forms. One common brand identity form is what the industry calls a wordmark. When crafting a wordmark, the brand designers takes the name of the company or brand and enlivens it with a creative approach to make just the company name ownable in a visual sense. This can be done using colour, font choice and many other key attributes that can make the name on its own, visually unique. The focus is solely on the words of the company name in a wordmark. Virgin, IBM and many other companies employ this type of brand identity, and have achieved incredible recognition in the process.
Brandmarks use a recognisable image alone as the logo and in most cases can only do so due to popularity. Apple, Twitter and Nike are examples that deploy images that are immediately associated with the brand. This means that any products and services carrying this mark are tied directly to that company. Many of these logos included wording when the brand designers created them at the beginning of the brand identity development. Once they became more widely known, the brand designers felt the wording was no longer necessary, and the brandmarks became strong enough to be known by image only.
Brand designers sometimes create combination marks for a brand identity, which feature both an icon and the company naming or brand paired together. Qantas, Amazon, Shell and Adobe are just a few good examples of this.
Another more traditional type of brand identity that brand designers develop is the emblem. Emblems incorporate the company name in an image in a unique and memorable fashion, often looking like a seal or a badge. Alfa Romeo and Mini serve as good examples of emblem style logo design.
Also, lettermarks use an abbreviated version of the company naming as the integral part of their branding. The iconic logos of Volkswagen, BMW, Hewlett Packard and General Electric all use abbreviations of their respective names and the brand designers incorporate this into a lettermark as their main brand identity.
Effective brand design, however, goes well beyond the type of mark. Every great brand identity, regardless of the style of mark used, has several attributes. As a leading brand agency Sydney, Percept always develops a look and feel that is relevant to both the company and its audience. Our brand designers look at everything from what the company does, through to the branding strategy and values for which it stands to help inform our brand design decisions when developing any type of branding.
Percept is a brand agency in Sydney that always makes sure our brand designers consider application and versatility. Everyone in our Sydney design agency knows that effective brand identity has the same level of impact in colour or black and white, or when they are presented in digital or print executions or in large or small formats.
Brand identity often serves as a first and lasting impression of company branding. For that reason, we make sure that every company logo design Sydney crafted by brand agency, Percept, is well thought out as part of a big-picture brand strategy. We intend for all our branding work, especially brand identity to be noticed for the right reasons because they are true to the essence of the organisation they represent. Impact comes from simple ideas, designed to convey appropriate impressions.
Although it starts with the company logo design, an organisation’s entire presence contributes to its strategic branding. At Percept Brand Design, our team of professional brand designers in Sydney, work with our clients to develop full brand identity programs that are good for business.
What is the logo design process?
Good branding requires a comprehensive process. The best logo designers in Sydney know that there’s a lot more to it than simply just the logo design. They apply research and strategy that draws on elements from the world’s of buissness, science and art, to create truly effective branding. This is known as strategic branding.
Initially, strategic branding agency, Percept, work closely with our clients during the briefing process. This can take the form of a strategic branding workshop which uncovers many insights from the client’s side as they are experts in their industry. As a design agency, this helps us grasp an in-depth understanding of what we’re trying to achieve in terms of the desired outcomes of the strategic branding project. We then perform research that looks at data and market analysis to find out who those customers are and what may influence their decision making in the buying process. Percept is a strategic branding agency that delves a bit deeper to identify the true essence of a brand and from there, we can determine authentic directions that could provide the company with a territory to own in a competitive environment. All this happens before our creative agency begins work in the design studio, because strategic branding comes from solid foundations that have been well thought through.
Percept is a branding agency that goes well beyond exploring basics such as font, colour, and visual imagery in an effort to resonate with potential customers in today’s market. We believe that first impressions matter and it is our commitment to creative branding with substance that has seen us recognised as one of the best logo designers in Sydney.
Every logo design project by strategic branding agency, Percept, follows the same thorough process. We work hard to ensure that the resulting logo design and branding not only meets the client’s desires, but provides the foundation for truly successful branding across all marketing efforts.
The scoping stage kicks off the process. Our strategic branding team holds a briefing and discussions that go over client needs and other important background information. From these conversations will come the initial project proposal.
Once the initial proposal is approved, the real work commences. We never start with aesthetics. Our team of brand designers conduct research which examines many factors including market landscape, competitor analysis, customer profiling and opportunities assessment. A strategic branding workshop with client interaction is also very important in obtaining input from all stakeholders. This provides the Percept, branding agency, with invaluable insight and allows us to form the depth of understanding that is required to reach an outcome that delivers results in relation to our client’s objectives.
3. Branding Strategy
The distillation of the research phase forms the branding strategy. We are able to make informed decisions based on our learnings, that will form the framework for any creative execution. It is at this stage that branding agency, Percept, will identify reasoning for what we’ll design, knowing that the branding strategy is based on substance rather than personal preferences and aesthetic tastes. The branding strategy also involves ideation work around what opportunities can be leveraged and this will form the basis for all creative concepts that progress to the branding design stage.
4. Logo Design
Some logo designers in Sydney begin with this step. At Percept, branding design can only begin once the previous steps are completed. This way we know that our work will actually perform for our client’s business. In this phase, the creative directions are fleshed out and different graphic design executions are developed. We cross check that all concepts meet the criteria set out in the previous steps, especially the branding strategy. We then cull the weak options and refine the branding design of the strongest creative solutions. Only at this point do we present options for the custom logo design Sydney to the client because we know we can stand by their performance. We involve our clients again at this stage, inviting them to offer input to help improve the finer details of not only the logo design, but the full brand direction. The feedback is processed, and our Sydney design agency team will go through any adjustments and further presentations as often as necessary until the logo design and branding meets the brief and is worthy of the organisation it represents.
Once we have settled on a final logo design, we carry out the finished artwork which is provided to the client for sign-off. Once approved, our design agency can then approach the roll-out phase which will be different depending on the requirements of each branding design project. It will generally involve the creation of a brand style guide and logo suite which contains the finished artwork in the many different file types the client may need in the future. This stage may also include the graphic design output by the strategic branding agency of other items such as corporate stationery, branding, signage, packaging design, website design or marketing communications.
This is the most exciting part of a branding design project. After the finished branding design work for each deliverable passes our extensive quality control process, it’s ready to go and do its job for the client’s business. At this point, we pass everything over to the client, knowing our process is solid and the branding strategy will allow all elements to work together seamlessly, producing a good return on investment in a quality company logo design created by one of the top branding agencies Sydney.
