Designing a Logo.

Logo is something that every website/company needs. But not everyone is an amazing certified graphic designer as Crystal Dayton, who specializes in graphic designing. So to educate us about the basics about logo designing, Crystal shares with us her knowledge via The Honest Fabler.


Make sure you research your competitor’s logos to see what they are designing to get an idea.

  1. Color is very important when designing because it communicates a message to your audience. Colours can grab the attention of the viewer and bring your illustration to life!paper-colorful-color-loose-40799
  2. Repetition: Avoid using the same design aspect over and over. No one likes to see the same old clichés, which would indirectly turn down your customers/audience. Here is a link to logo design cliches.
  3. Simplicity: Keep your logo simple. The best icons are usually simple and timeless including nike and apple.real-estate
  4. Negativity: Think about negative space in a clever way. Even voids can turn into beautiful depictions.negative-design
