On Thursday, July 07, 2011, I've made a logo for this blog, I decided to make it with easiest and simplest steps, but still has its own character. The logo was created using Corel Draw X3 applications, and edited in Adobe Photoshop CS3.

 Vectorylab Logo

While I'm making the logo, I remembered an article on one of a graphic design website, which goes something like this:

Logos are everywhere. Because of this, only a few can rise among the noise - and often it’s the more unique logos that are most memorable. Sometimes to be unique, you’ve also got to be weird.

When one creates a logo, they should follow a logo design process to ensure that the final design suits the needs of the clients (not their wants). Here is the usual logo design process in short:
  1. Design Brief: Conduct a questionnaire or interview with the client to get the design brief.
  2. Research: Conduct research focused on the industry itself, on its history, and on its competitors.
  3. Reference: Conduct research into logo designs that have been successful and current styles and trends that may be related to the design brief.
  4. Sketching and Conceptualizing: Develop the logo design concept(s) around the brief and research.
  5. Reflection: Take breaks throughout the design process. This lets your ideas mature and helps you get renewed enthusiasm and receive feedback.
  6. Positioning: Position yourself as a contractor or build a long lasting relationship. ie. Client tells you what to do or you guide the client to the best solution. The latter is usually best.
  7. Presentation: Choose to present only a select few logos to the client or a whole collection. Presenting only the best is recommended.
  8. Celebration: Drink beer, eat chocolate, sleep, start on the next logo design. Or a combination.
So, how about this logo ? What do you think ?
