Do You Already Have A Logo?
If you already have a logo you like you should ask yourself these questions: Did your local Punta Gorda FL logo designer intend it only for use on the web? Does it translate across media to a business card or billboard? Most cheap logos are created to be used in one application with no consideration as to how they will look when attempting to adapt them to other media forms. For example, a bitmap logo will only work well in its original size. It will look fuzzy when blown up to poster, banner, or billboard size. Shrinking a larger but carelessly designed logo to a business card can result an illegible and expensive disaster.
An additional question is does your logo have a full color (4 color) design? If you decide to use it in offset printing you may want to reduce your production cost by using two colors. Do you have the original artwork from your logo designer for that? Without it you are stuck because you cannot simply remove half the colors. If you desaturate a full color artwork to gray scale you lose all color and the results are usually quite visually unappealing and commercially unacceptable.
Is your current logo a full color (4 color) design? If you want to print it and reduce your expense by reducing to two colors, did your logo designer give you the original artwork? If not, you are out of luck. You can’t just remove half the colors. Reducing full-color artwork to grayscale results are quite poor and commercially unusable.
Hunter Graphics serves the Punta Gorda FL area logo needs. We may be able to save that logo you like by redrawing it so it will work in different media. Here is how: I create logo artwork the proper way using a vector graphic application like Adobe Illustrator. Your logo would be completely scalable to any size you desire, from business cards to billboards. The colors can be adjusted as needed. There is no need for me or another logo designer to create a new design for each usage. When creating a logo Identity Package, I include color call-outs in that package with attention to how and where the logo will be used. For example, you may need one color arrangement of your logo for packaging and another for print marketing and yet another for invoicing. The fonts, color call-outs, and end usage will be included with the Identity Package. This would be worked out in consultation with you beforehand.
Get What You Pay For:
You may be tempted to avoid the cost of hiring a local logo designer. But, by purchasing logo designer software or even using logo designer freeware, you will never achieve the same results as an experienced professional. Quick logo designs and logo generators do not create images that function well or are adaptable to various applications. Free online logo software are toys, not resources for professionals.
