Logo Design  Project - Four main steps - PART 2 by RaymondGD Logo Design  Project - Four main steps - PART 2 by RaymondGD
Hello all,
Long time I think of this work, and today, I decided to pause for a moment all my work, and do something that will characterize me and my conduct during the design. As you can see, I have four rules that I set up for myself at design time.

First of all -An unusual Connection:
The logo must be connected to the subject or the message of the company, organization, and so on.
Not enough that the logo look good and inviting, it must be connected and therefore, for me, This rule is very important.
So the logo will be unique, the connection must be special - An unusual Connection. Creative thinking should be integrated with the subject.

Simplicity and specificity:
It's very simple - the logo must be simple and to the point. Other additions will reduce the value of the logo.
If you have any further additions do it as extra work And not inside the main version.
Only with simplicity and specificity you can touch the heart of the viewer - too busy message will not be remembered at the viewer.

Easy to Remember:
I've explained more about the implications of a busy logo And one of the negative implications is forgetfulness.
Good logo is a logo that easy to remember. Why a logo Must be easy to remember? In order to the viewer can go back and use the brand again and again.

Hidden meaning:
The purpose of hidden meaning is to give the viewer understand the logo in other ways.
Hidden meaning is not that easy to create, but after careful thought, the results are beautiful.
It is important that the hidden meaning integrate with the central idea of the logo - Without it, there is no point in using the hidden meaning.

Nice work! I really like the colors you used. They stand out and get your attention while still being easy on the eyes.

I think the rules you mentioned are great things to keep in mind when designing a logo! I think this could be really helpful to designers who are stuck, or just starting out.

Do you think some extra information could be included about how to go about coming up with these ideas (such as the connections or hidden meanings)? I think that could make it an even more useful infographic.

I'm curious how you came up with the interesting shapes. Do they relate somehow to the idea?

Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing more from you.
