Why should a logo cost more than your lunch?

A logo is the very first impression people get of your company

Before a potential client even walks through your door, your logo is a representation of your company. It can make a company appear large, small (whether it really is or not) fun, serious, professional…

A logo needs longevity

Once a logo is designed it will represent your company for many years.

A logo needs to be original

A logo should be designed specifically for your company. A cheap “generic logo” may not reflect your company’s values. A cheap logo may also use clip art which could end up being used by another company.

A logo should look professional

You wouldn’t take a potential new client to Mac Donalds for lunch, in effect this is what is being done with a cheap logo. A logo should give your company a professional image, appropriate to its needs.

A logo should reflect the time and thought gone in to designing it

One of the problems here is that people don’t always realise the amount work that goes into a professionally designed logo:

  • The research – even if the budget is quite small I would expect at the very least to find out who the company’s main competitors are and how they present themselves
  • The brainstorming of ideas
  • The rough sketches
  • The 3rd and sometimes 4th logo options worked up on the computer
  • The amends, tweaking and further amends


A logo is the starting point of your whole corporate image

The colours typography and style of a logo will often dictate the corporate look of the rest of a company’s literature.
