The Easy Guide to Creating a Brand Logo

The Easy Guide to Creating a Brand Logo

Learn about logos and what makes a good logo or a bad logo. Gain an understanding of the role color plays in your branding. Learn about typefaces and the message they send.

Hiring a logo design firm to do a full exploration can easily cost many thousands of dollars. You know your brand better than anyone. Be a part of this logo exploration exercise and later hire an artist to complete your logo based on your instructions (after the workshop) instead of hiring a branding company to develop your brand for you.

Complete an exploration for your own logo, making branding decisions on important aspects such as coloring and typography. Also brainstorm possible logo symbols to incorporate, with sketches (no drawing required) and more.

This workshop is best presented as a breakout session at a conference, or as a seminar for a learning organization, such as a library or an entrepreneurial group. It could also be presented to a startup/launch team to have the core team work through steps to create their best logo.

Let’s talk about how and when to present this.

Holy Website! What Do I Do?!

You know you need a website. But you don’t know where to start. Learn how to create a plan and define your wants and needs. This will help you either clearly define what you will get when working with a web designer or give you the plan you need to complete the website yourself.

Hiring a web design firm to create a website for you can get expensive. And if you don’t really know what you want, part of what they will be charging you for is to help you clarify your ideas. If you are able to determine exactly what you want, and you can give the web design firm a clear plan to complete the website, you will save time, money and effort when developing your site.

In this workshop, learn  what makes a good website and a bad website. Learn about usability and how it effects your online presence. Briefly touch upon best practices for SEO (Search Engine Optimization – a lengthy subject in and of itself). Create an actionable plan to develop a website including your information architecture and wireframes. Learn the basics of setting up a WordPress website to be able to set up your own website.

Let’s talk about how to incorporate this workshop in your next event! Or bring your top team together to work through this and create the structure for your corporate website.
