Logo Design FAQ

  • Yes your logo will be totally unique. Obviously I can’t guarantee there won’t be similar logos that have been produced as there are probably literally millions of logos that are currently being used. Also I never use clipart and your logo will be designed from scratch. If after I have designed your logo you did happen to discover a logo exactly the same then I would assume that the other persons have blatantly copied your logo. If you are concerned about this happening then I would suggest you copyright your logo. You can find more detailed help and information at the Business Link website.

    Some other logo design websites will use a number of designers to work on your logo and will often outsource to ‘job sourcing’ websites. These are quite often designed by low paid designers, who may use clipart or lack professional experience and it would be difficult for the companies that outsource to be in control of their designs.

  • Your logo will be supplied in a wide variety of file formats suitable for print or web. AI, JPG, PNG, GIF , PDF, EPS. The GIF files will be supplied in 8 different sizes. The AI, EPS and PDF are the vector files which are for printed material such as stationery, vehicle graphics and large format vinyl banners. The GIF, JPG and PNG are raster or bitmap images and are more suited for web usage. The vector files can be scaled up to any size and will always remain sharp.

  • Yes you can for £25 per extra logo design. This includes all the various file formats and a black and white version.

  • Yes I do. There’s been many times in the past where previous clients have lost all they’re files because of a damaged hard drive or other reasons, so for this reason I keep an archive of all the logos I’ve produced so far.

  • Initially I’ll have the first set of logo proofs ready usually within 3 days. Once you’ve viewed the first set of proofs and asked for amendments then I’ll usually get them amended with 24 hours. Quite often I can make the amendments within a few hour, obviously depending on the complexity of the work.

  • No problem, not everyone is happy with one of the design concepts first time round. So just give me some more feedback, direction or perhaps provide me with some other logo examples to show me ideas that reflects your style.

    Hopefully when you receive the second set of proofs you will then be happy with at least one of the concepts.

    If after receiving the second set of logo proofs you’re still not happy with my service, or the way your design is going then I will be more than happy to refund your money. No questions asked.

    So basically I’ll only be happy until you’re completely satisfied with your final choice. It’s in my own interest to try and design you the best logo for your business for a multitude of reasons:

    • Happy and satisfied clients will hopefully recommend me to other potential customers which is how I receive a large majority of my orders.
    • Clients who feel they’ve had a great service may return to me in the future.
    • It will improve my online portfolio by hopefully keeping it up to a high standard.
  • Yes I would say I do. I like simple uncomplicated logos. I like logos which represents the company or organisation with a minimal amount of graphic elements. I like ‘clever’ logos, a logo that shows there has been a lot of thought put into the design process.

    I also like logos that have a separate graphical element or icon which can be detached from the main logo idea and therefore used for other types of media representations, such as watermarks, packaging and used creatively within stationery design, which are just a few examples.

    I prefer to use no more than one or 2 colours which I feel has more of a visual impact than using 3 or more. Although this is not always the case, as in some circumstances it’s more effective to use multiple colours for example, Nursery logos or a logo used for a printing company. There are also advantages to using fewer colours, it may be cheaper to have printed or cut into vehicle graphics and other various media types.

    But although I have a style which I prefer, primarily I have to listen to the clients preferences first and make sure I adhere to any instructions I’m given. Usually I’m able to add in my style in some form and this seems to work well for me. I imagine most customers choose a logo designer based on their portfolio, so if the customer doesn’t like my style then they probably wouldn’t have chosen my services in the first place.

  • As my office is home-based I do not work to any fixed hours. Although generally I tend not to work in the evenings, although I will if necessary if I need to get your logo designed ready for an important deadline.
