Breathing new life into the world of travel and stays
Even though most people see a logo as a single reference point of a design (or even use the logo as synonym for the brand), it’s important to understand a logo from a broader perspective. It should fall into place like a puzzle piece. that puzzle piece captures the essence and symbolizes the purpose, personality, vision, mission and values of a brand. Together with other elements such as color, typography, patterns and tone of voice, it should ring through all of your messaging and touchpoints to create a memorable brand identity.
It’s important not to be (entirely) dependent on color or lighting effects; it should work as a monochrome symbol too. If your logo will consist mostly of gradients it will be beneficial to have a monochrome version too. Another thing to do is to try and work with negative space, which can add sophistication to logo marks. It also adds more options for other creative options later on down the road.
Most brands have an extensive amount of digital and printed brand collateral. These are used to promote the brand, and support the marketing and sales of a service or product. This means the logo could be barely visible at times e.g. on a pen. Other times it will need to be scaled up, e.g. on a large roadside banner. A logo should work on all sizes, period. That’s why it’s good to keep scaling this in mind when designing a logo. Readability is incredibly important for logo design. If a logo consists of thin lines, it won’t be visible on small scale, or loose it’s particular loose and feel. A solution could be to tweak the logo, or design a variant specifically for a different scale.
My experience working with Yummygum was incredibly positive; the logo is fantastic and so is the brand concept behind the visual identity. I love how that concept translate to the page designs. I would definitely hire the Yummygum team again in the future.
Logo’s are important, but don’t forget they’re only one part of a larger scale brand identity
Make sure a logo is still clearly visible on different sizes
Keep it simple, keep simplyfing until you have the core essence of the brand
Always keep clients involved so they can provide input on their style preferences
