Why should a logo cost more than 500 bucks?

• 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 MacDonalds 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 realize 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 4 or 5 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 colors typography and style of a logo will often dictate the corporate look of the rest of a company’s literature.
