Why is a logo important?
As a blog or biz owner, your brand image is…as they say…not everything, it’s the only thing.
Think about brands you love.
The love affair with this logo extends well beyond product, all the way into the lifestyle zone. Customers willingly plaster it on cars, tshirts and notebooks.
Do you know what company this logo belongs to? Of course you do!
A logo creates brand recognition using the same font, or the same image. Everytime.
What if you don’t have one?
What if Superman’s “S” was written in a
on each costume, cape…and I don’t know…business card??
What would you say?
Is this “S” for Superman? Is he the one that leaps tall buildings in a single bound?
Or is it Spiderman? Scary-man, Slim-man, Soup-man?
But if you aren’t yet a superhero, the principles still apply…
Lots of people have the same or similar name…
“I love that painting, which ‘Ava’s Art’ is it from?”
“Oh the one with the pink door, got it…”
Logos build trust through brand recognition.
