Logo Design

Logo design is the most important task in establishing strong brand identity. This is why every dollar spent on research, alternative options and treatments will pay off many times over. Nothing is worse then spending a lot of effort in development of other materials when brand is not distinctive, badly executed or simply not representing the company's business. In order to avoid a costly redesign of communication materials and delays of business milestones, organizations should consider logo design as first and most important creative task after establishing a business.

Doing it the right way from start means performing enough research, testing and finding the most optimal solution without rushing to save a dime. In the process of logo design LightMix carefully reviews company’s business, history, and competition. We believe that the successful, long term brand strategy is always based on the identity that is unique and flexible. We try to find a common vision with clients by discussing and testing alternative approaches in the design. Our goal is to create new brand identity that is memorable and usable. After over hundreds of successful logo designs, we feel comfortable to provide guarantee that our design will match or exceed any quality standards.

Creative Process

During initial meetings we discuss brand recognition and existing brand usage. We study our client’s business process and try to fully understand their marketing goals, business objectives and audience. Our design team reviews competition and similar organizations' brands. Together with our customers, we identify the most logical direction for theme and style, eliminate undesired combinations of fonts, colors, shapes and proceed with concept design. In order to collect the most information prior to the work, we also ask clients to provide us with initial information by filling out logo design questionnaire.

Concept design
We conduct concept design sessions with participation of all our designers. Initial set of design options is generated by the team and presented to the customer for reviews and feedback. We work closely with our clients to provide with unlimited additional design options if required, and go through unlimited design reviews to reach the best result.

Production and Delivery
When layout is approved, we produce logo files in various formats, orientations and colors. We prepare print and screen versions, formulate logo usage rules, identify compatible typefaces and complimentary colors. The files are delivered electronically to the client in print-ready formats and include basic or detailed style guide describing correct identity uses.

"Professional, creative, thoroughly detailed, and impressive--that's how we would describe our working with Lightmix and the quality of product they produced. Initially, we knew that we wanted a presentation that would give the viewer a thorough demonstration of our software--Lightmix took our basic concept and produced a Flash presentation many times beyond our expectations (and we have very high expectations!). Because of their committment to quality on-time work, we got maximim results with minimum time committment on our part--which is very important when your team is working long hours and every minute counts. After watching the presentation, all our customers want to know who created it, so that they too can have the same arsenal of creative talent and technical expertise helping their business."
