    Are there general rule to follow when creating coporate logos? Do you want to keep it realitively simple? How about color selection? Some have said not to use too many colors? Any input would be great.

    Not sure about general rules, but I would imagine it would be good to kep it to 2-3 colors and have a design which would translate well to business cards and letterheads.

    Thanks,

    I'll put that into play while i am designing my 2nd site. It'll be up by tommorow (8/15), so then everyone can take a look at it and give me some feed back on how things look.

    thanks
    Tank126 :D

    hey tank, it's ve been a week since 8/15, wassup?
    anyway about logo designing, it's about: tell all in nothing
    meaning: let the audience get the idea (the company, field of work, speciality, etc) from a simple drawing
    easy but yet extremly hard 2 implement right?

    Hi,
    Here are some rules and i hope really helpful to everyone who want to design logo...

    Your logo should reflect your company in a unique and honest way.
    Avoid too much detail.
    Your logo should work well in black and white (one-color printing).
    Make sure your logo's scalable.
    Your logo should be artistically balanced.


    so follows these rule for designing your logo....
    Regards

    When designing logos you want to think about printing considerations.

    • for T-shirts and embroidery: no more than two colors + background color
    • for letterhead: one color
    • trinkets like pens and stuff: one color

    The main reason logos are simple is so they are easily recognizable yet easy to put everywhere. Also, simplicity gives the logo the ability to be clear weather big or small.

    Hope this helps.

    Ya, you can also you a small symbol by the text, such as a bird or tree or something of that nature.

    Go for cool-tone colours like blue, grey, silver, black, etc. But it really is up to the client. They may have colours they would like to use. As for the design, simple and sleek seems to always impress.
