Logo identity

filed under: @ 13:24:51


It can be the easiest thing to create a logo for a client but when it comes to assessing what style of identity can best represent yourself or your business, this is a different matter altogether. It is tempting to use your own brand as a showcase of all your best techniques and ideas but this must be balanced with modesty and professionalism to gain the correct tone for your business image.

Logos come in all kinds of shapes and sizes however they typically are one of 5 different classifications. Designing a logo is about much more than an exercise in aesthetic. A logo must be a positive depiction of the product or service it represents. When designing a logo, knowing which type of mark would be the most appropriate for the application will help you achieve a stronger solution.

Sevencolors new logo

filed under: @ 20:49:54

I wanted a logo that conveyed the meaning of this web site and this is what I came up with:

sevencolors logo

The O becoming a broken circle with an arrow pointing out symbolizes the communication between people, an opening of the mind that brings change and that's why the color is different. The name itself (seven colors on a spinning wheel become white, white light passing through a prism splits into seven colors) stands for multiplicity that becomes unity, the capacity of different entities to coexist and actually learn from each other. The circles and arrows also symbolize the World Wide Web and its huge potential for connecting people and circulating ideas freely.
