Your logo should have:

  • Timeless Style: You must not make a logo just because of trend or fashion. It has to be timeless or everlasting because that is how you want your business to be. Look at some big companies like Pepsi or Coca-cola.
  • Uniqueness: It has to stand out of the crowd for it to be noticed, remembered and easily identified.
  • Simplicity: For it to be easily remembered it have to be simple. Being simple doesn’t mean that it has simple meaning. Look at Google. Looking at a simple white page with a Text “Google” and a search box, no one will think that it is a billion dollar company.
