3 Tips to Improve Your Logo Design – Critiquing, Simplifying, Research

3 Tips To Improve Your Logo Design

1. Methodical Critiques – Whether critiquing your own work or someone else’s, it’s important to remember that a good critique follows a process. I think of it like a train. The logo is the engine and what I think needs to be fixed is the caboose. The key is to share your thought process as you go from one end of the train to the other.

2. Simplify your design – If you look at your logo and you’re just not happy with it. It’s probably a sign that there’s too much going on. It’s time to simplify. A good technique is to hide all your layers and start adding things back 1 at a time. This will help you see where the problem is.

3. Do plenty of research – This is where inspiration comes from. It’s easy to make the mistake of jumping straight into designing but resist that temptation. Look at whats been done, look at references no matter how obscure. This is the food your brain will use to come up with ideas, don’t short change it! Pixar spends lots of time and money doing research, it must be worth it.

These are 3 small things you can start doing that will improve your logo design skills. Getting better is a slow process, but these 3 things are a step in the right direction. We will have more tips for you soon. Keep learning stuff, one day you will be great! Thanks for watching. The Futur.
