Colors evoke emotions


The colors you include in the logo contribute a lot towards its overall success. Hence, you must carefully choose the colors of your logo. It should catch the eyes, convey messages, and evoke emotions. On the other hand, you should ensure that the colors used in the logo match perfectly well with each other.


Different colors have different meanings depending on their context.


Red can mean strength and courage, but also resembles food and energy.


Orange can mean happiness and optimism, but can also mean fun and excitement.


Apart from the main color, black & white, grayscale, light/dark versions should also be available too.



Make your logo versatile


Now more than ever, you are going to use your logo in many different places.


Is it digital/on-screen or is it physical/on print?


Is it a social media profile photo? a watermark? on your website?

Versatile means to have different variants that work best on different applications.

Usually, a full logo package would consist of the logomark, wordmark, vertical lockup, horizontal lockup, app icons, favicons & many more.


The logomark might work better on watermarks and social media icons.


Whereas the horizontal/vertical lockup might work better on documents or huge banners.


All in all, a versatile logo has a proper system that makes them work seamlessly on a variety of applications.
