I was reading a really interesting article recently, which was entitled ‘Our logo looks like underpants’ which illustrated the difficulties facing global brands when different cultures interpret particular visual stimuli in very different ways.
It got me thinking about logos and how we need to think about how hard our logo works – like anything in your business, your logo has a job to do; it not only needs to be distinctive but it needs to be memorable too.
Try to look different from your competitors – don’t blend in, stand out! And, you want people to recognise it. In order to build customer loyalty, recognition is the first step to establishing you as the ‘go to’ company.
Have you ever wondered what messages some of the famous brands are sending with their logos. Although they’re mostly American, this video demonstrates brand messaging through the eyes of a five year-old. Shown by her designer-dad, these were her immediate responses.
