Logo Design Process



Design Questionnaire
Clients are required to fill the Logo Design Questionnaire which will be sent to you upon initial inquiry. Please provide as much details as possible so that I will be able to understand your requirement clearly.
Research
Based on the answers you provide in the Logo Design Questionnaire, I will conduct a research to better understand your company, products and services, your competition and related brands, logos and marks. Thereafter I will create mood boards.
Brainstorming
Based on the results from my research and the mood boards, I try to find the most suitable keywords to build the design ideas.
Sketching/Vectorizing
Using the design ideas, I start sketching everything that comes to my mind. I then select a few best ideas and refine the sketches to finally decide on which idea to vectorize.
Presentation
Vectorized logo will be shown in various applications using mock-ups, along with brand identity if requested. Concept presentation helps the client to see the use of their logo in the real world.
Feedback/Revisions
This phase decides the project's closure or the requirement of potential modification/s. If revisions are needed, then such changes will be done based on the terms agreed previously.
Finalize
When a concept is approved by the client, I prepare the final files. Final files include the design files in vector format, high and low resolution images for print and digital purposes, icons, the Logo Guidelines Document and the Copyright Transfer Statement.
