Participate with your best projects
The logos are either fully graphic (symbols or icons) or with an accompanying text integrated as part of the logo.
Logo design is an important area of graphic design application. The graphic design of the logo is part of the product, brand or organization with which we transmit certain values that must be clearly understood by consumers.
The logo design profession has grown significantly in numbers over the years, since the rise of the Modernist movement in the United States in the 1950s.
Three designers are regarded as pioneers of this movement and logo design and corporate identity. Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv have created a large number of iconic logos such as the Chase Bank, Mobil Oil, PBS, NBC, National Geographic, and others.
Another pioneer was Paul Rand, one of the authors of the Swiss style of graphic design. He designed many posters and corporate identities, including the famous logos of IBM, UPS, and ABC. Saul Bass, the third legendary designer, was responsible for several major logos, including both the Bell Telephone logo and its successor, the AT&T Corporation globe.
Color is a key element in the logo design and plays an important role in differentiating the brand. The importance of color in this context is due to the mechanics of human visual perception, where color and contrast play an important role for visual detection of detail. While color is considered important for recognition of the brand and logo design, it should not be in conflict with the functionality of the logo.
Steps in logo design process include: research; conceptualization; investigation of alternative candidates; refinement of a chosen design; testing; adoption and production of the chosen mark.
