Be it a Millennial, Generation X or Generation Y everyone today has a mobile phone that they love dearly. So much so that our entire lives have shifted to the screens of phones and all we know today about convenience must come from phones. Be it ordering food, getting a cab or an airplane, our phones have changed how we see and live our lives.
Mobile As A Logo?
Imagine if this one commodity has had such a profound impact on our lives, what is stopping you from turning it into an actual logo for your business? You might ask where the creativity in that is, but you don’t always need the most out of box ideas to make it work, sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that take the lead. Hiding in plain sight, as they call it.
So, your logo design in the shape of a mobile is not the most outrageous idea that anyone has ever proposed. If you decide to make a mobile logo, you will have to put in some thought in deciding how to go through with it, but it is definitely going to work if you put it to action.
Creating a mobile logo is not difficult because there is just no design to look at; it is difficult because there is just so much to look at. You have so many mobiles in the real world out here that it is virtually impossible to look at all of them at once.
What you can do in deciding on a logo is break it down in two areas. You could say that you want to go for one of the older versions with buttons on them or display a completely touch screen phone with no buttons whatsoever. That way, you can decide to preserve an identity for your brand in the form of a traditional design or one that is modern.
Following through with that very line of argument, your logo design can be representative of your target group. So, one simple decision can lead to such a huge chain of reactions for your business and clears you of any difficult decisions to make. That is a good thing if you look at it, but also a bad thing.
The Execution and Consideration
Next thing you have to do is decide on a custom logo execution strategy. Just coming up with a design is not the end all be all. To really put it to work, you should be able to design the logo on a screen using specialized software. But while designing, you should be careful about how it will look when reproduced and printed on actual stuff.
But apart from its execution, you must keep in mind that mobiles follow trends that are very difficult to keep track of. After many years of minimal designs, companies are now trying to go towards folding phones that can fit easily inside your pocket. That is what you should be prepared for.
