Creating a Logo: Where to Find Inspiration

Do you want to create a logo, but you have writer's block? It's not always easy to get ideas on demand. Sometimes, it can take a few hours or even a few days. Whether or not this is the first time you have created a logo, do you know where to find inspiration? FreeLogoDesign has found you some strategies that can help you be inspired and have a clear idea of what you want for your logo.

Start with market research

Market research? How does this relate to the creation of my logo? Before you start anything, we strongly advise you do an analysis of your business. This is the first step in creating your logo. These elements will most certainly help you have ideas and define your goals.

Your company

As you want to create a logo for your company, sports team, music group, etc., your company should be your first inspiration. You want to create a symbol that is representative and unique. This is a logo for your company and not that of a competitor's. Start by outlining the strengths and weaknesses of what you want to offer, and then add your values to it. By having these elements in mind, it will be easier to create a logo that represents you well.

Your target clientele

Then, take the time to do an analysis of your target audience. As you will likely want to sell your products and services to a certain group of people, they must be intrigued by your logo as well as your brand image in general. Start this exercise by defining who your ideal customers are, what they like, and what their needs are. Obviously, a company that wants to target young men who love sports will have a different logo than a company targeting retired women.

Your competitors

Did you know that your competitors can also be a great source of inspiration in a way? Before creating your logo, you should take a look at what is already being done. This will allow you to better stand out from the competition. For example, if you work in a field where all the logos are blue or gray, it will be easy to attract attention by choosing a different type of logo or different colors. Obviously, as we have already mentioned in several articles, never copy an existing logo. You can take inspiration from certain elements, nothing more.

Online resources that are inspiring

After your market research, you will have valuable information in hand to help you create your logo. However, if you want to learn more about current trends or look at hundreds of logos for inspiration, know that there are many resources on the web for this.

Sites specializing in design and logos

There are millions of logos and designers. That means, there are dozens of websites that specialize in designing and creating logos. These resources are particularly intriguing because they allow you to see examples created by professionals. In addition, you'll have access to the latest trends and logo redesigns. Among the many existing sites, we recommend Creativebloq, Underconsideration and Logo of the day

Pinterest

Whether it's creating a logo, finding a trendy haircut or redoing your salon, Pinterest remains one of the best places to come up with ideas. You only have to search a little to find an infinite number of ideas. So, you'll certainly get inspiration by taking a look at Pinterest. So, when you find a pin you like, don't forget to save it to a board. Pinterest can certainly help you find inspiration in many areas, including logo creation.
