Tips:

What makes a great logo? It is more than just a visual aid it is to give our brand identity. Our logo can establish a strong identity for our organization and expand our brand from Oregon to the Pacific Northwest. The logo must not be too complex keep it simple: KISS.

  • Know our organization
  • Must be simple
  • Must be memorable
  • Must be versatile and appropriate
  • Do not copy
  • Unique and reflects our organization 
  • Good design builds trust and projects higher quality.
  • Do not make just a beautiful drawing
  • How does it look in different sizes and B&W
  • Do not use clip art or photos
  • Play with keywords (look up in a dictionary if stuck)
  • Gather thoughts onto a idea board before starting your design
