If we were to talk about the most important inventions of the modern-day, 7 out of 10 people will say it is the computer. A machine that apparently surpassed human intelligence and calculating ability. At the same time, it reminded humans that machines can never truly win without a human heading its operations.
But one of the most exciting things about a computer is that it keeps changing form. Where computers once took up entire rooms, they were soon shrunk down to sizes that could fit on our tables. After further modifications, the computer could fit onto even smaller surfaces. We were eventually able to fit them inside our pockets in the form of a cell phone.
But the most popular form them was the old monitor and CPU version that all millennials saw in their early years. That system has become the face of computer systems for generations to come. So, why don’t we think about turning it into an actual logo design?
Making a Computer Logo
No funky designs and no colours are acceptable while creating computer or gadget logos. How then do you depict a computer with several different components that all combine to create a computer screen?
Easy, you clear the clutter. You realize that the most important thing to give an impression of a computer is the monitor and the CPU that will stand out among all others. So, why not use just those two. But before you actually get to designing, there are some important considerations that you must undertake to make sure you have a great logo design.
You must understand that your logo must be about your brand identity. If your brand has an identity (of course it does) you should use your logo to communicate it to the outside world. By using your logo as a communicative tool, you attract much more people than just your crude marketing efforts.
The next step is to do a market analysis. The first step to this is to look at your customers and see what they are like. Create buyer personas and understand what sort of a custom logo will cater best to them. The market analysis must also be about your competitors. What sort of logos do they use? Does your industry follow logo trends? Is there context sensitivity to the logos in the industry?
With these questions, you can finally decide the type of logo you want and the colors inside the logo. But even now, do you think you can create the entire logo on your own?
Bringing it To Life
Even with a rough idea in your mind, actually bringing your logo to life is not as easy as it seems. A professional logo designer is a resource you really need to bring your logo to life. A team of designers usually works together to give you more than 3 logo designs for your concept. From that, you can choose the one you like the most and suggest any changes that you feel are important. Soon enough, you will have these changes made and presented back to you in no time. The process becomes much simpler and streamlined with an outsourcing partner.
