The Logo Design ProcessDesign brief: Meet with the client to discuss the project needs and timelines.Research: Gather background information about the company and the industry to which itbelongs, including your client s competitors. This will give you a foundation on which tobuild your design.Examine successful logo designs from your client s industry to determine what hasworked in the past, as well as logos from other industries.Brainstorming/ Sketching: Begin to lay out your initial ideas on paper. Be creative andopen to possibilities at this point; you can refine your sketches later.Reflection: Take periodic breaks from the design process. This helps you to reflect onyour work and examine it more carefully and from a renewed perspective at a later pointin time.Revisions: This is the process of refining a design according to feedback from your client.This stage of the process can take several rounds to revise and perfect.Presentation: Your final presentation to the client should reflect your best work. Be surethat the finished piece has a high quality and professional appearance. You may evenwant to show the logo positioned on a product on which it may later appear.
