Seven Three Four (734) Logo Design

What Makes a Great Logo Design?

734 Logo designed by Fivenson Studios, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, specializes in design of all kinds including graphic, web, logo, app, and other forms of digital designs.

Logo Design Concept for Sever Three Four Designs. (734 Designs)

The Nike Swoosh, the Coca-Cola cursive and Apple’s apple: great brands have great logos. These logos convey the brand’s message to millions of people every day, just by being visible.

If your company is looking to make an impression and grow in the marketplace, you’ll need a logo. Fortunately, a good graphic designer can create one for you. While the price tags for those famous logos we mentioned earlier vary widely, you can get a brand-building logo for a budget price. Creating a logo is about more than eye-catching pictures. There are many things to consider when choosing the right logo for your company, so today we’re going to take a deeper look at the logistics of logos.

 

Talking Text

Unless your logo is internationally recognized like Nike or Apple, adding your name to the graphic is crucial to building your brand awareness. That means you’re going to need some text. The words you include in your logo do more than just convey your message, for starters. They also represent the “look” of your brand. Great graphic designers know how to use different fonts to convey different meanings and emotions to their audiences. Being legible isn’t enough, unfortunately. Your text has to convey a notion as well, and your graphic designer can help you find the right text for your logo.

Eye-catching Color

Colors aren’t just for sports teams. Companies can and should have colors as well, and those colors should be represented in the logo. It’s important, of course, to choose your colors wisely. The colors you select can have a big impact on your company’s future business success.

Start by remembering that certain colors convey certain emotions. If your goal is to make your logo look young and exciting, you may want to select a bright color like red or yellow. However, if your goal is to have your logo look cool and refined, darker colors, like blue, are the better choice. Color psychology is very real and a good graphic designer can use it to your advantage.

It’s also worth pointing out that you don’t need to have any color at all. A great logo should look as good in black and white as it does in any color shade. The Nike swoosh is a great example.

Finally, just like your text, simplicity is king when it comes to selecting colors for your logo. That means limiting your color selections to 3 or fewer; it’s worth noting that a single color may be all you need.

Creating a Great Graphic

When most people think of a brand’s logo, they think of the graphic, so make your graphic count. Any logo can look good on a masthead, but a professional graphic designer can help you create a graphic that also looks good on stationery, apparel, advertisements and on the Web.

Graphics that possess these qualities are professionally created, not clip art. They are also scalable and, like the text and color selections, simple. Perhaps most importantly, a good logo graphic is also timeless. Your company is going to be around for generations, and so should your logo.

More cost effective than you think

For your business to grow and build brand reputation, you need a great logo – something that symbolizes your company every time it appears and conveys the message you want to your customers, now and for the years ahead. But that doesn’t mean your logo has to cost you thousands of dollars. Fivenson Studios design team has been empowering companies for years by creating one-of-a-kind logos for affordable prices.

Logo Design

The core piece on all your marketing efforts is your logo. Your company's logo is the first place where prospects will have contact with your company. If your logo is out of date or poorly constructed then you can be sure that you will lose business from your prospects or target audience. Many times an innovative and intriguing logo is what will make your prospects interested enough in your company to want to do business with you or at least find out what it is you do.

Our approach is to create fresh, innovative logos for our clients that establish branding identity, capture the attention of your target audience and tell the story of your business

Prepare Your Website & Email for Mobile Sales-designed by fivenson studios graphic design in ann arbor michigan

Email Marketing

Email marketing campaigns are great and they’re proven to work. No matter what newfangled gadgets and gizmos are developed, consumers are still attached to email. One reason is because it’s delivered right to their smartphones. It’s easy—and customers like easy.

But in order for email marketing to be effective, it needs to link to a responsive website that looks good on different devices. Prepare to deliver a good mobile experience, otherwise, you’re bound to lose sales.

Mobile Responsive Websites

Most of the small business websites that I’ve seen are not mobile-responsive. Before you do any campaigns to promote your site or service you will need to have a mobile friendly website. Having a responsive site first will make it easier for your customers viewing your site on a mobile device. You will need to optimizing your content for mobile users is also a great way to reach mobile customers. Over 60% of emails are opened on mobile devices, so promoting your services via email and using a responsive email design will gain more mobile users.”

HAVE A HAPPY & SAFE ST. PATRICK’S DAY

st-patricks-day

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY

St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the Roman Catholic feast day of the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick died on March 17, 461. But did you know that he wasn’t even Irish?

History:

Traveling along the Irish countryside you can see many shades of green, but knights in the Order of St. Patrick wore a color known as St. Patrick’s blue. Green has been used by supporters of Irish independence who used the color to represent their cause in the 18th century and later. Undeniably, green is used to denote Ireland today but that has nothing to do with St. Patrick.

Interestngly, Patrick’s birth name was Maewyn, born in Roman Britain, kidnapped into slavery at age 16 and brought to Ireland. He escaped to a monastery in Gaul (France) where he converted to Christianity. He returned to Ireland in 432 as a missionary. Patrick ultimately became a bishop and after his death was named Ireland’s patron saint. Celebrations in Ireland were understated though. When the Irish emigrated to the U.S., they created the bigger celebrations and parades known today.

It wasn’t until early in the eighteenth century when the Irish held their first St. Patrick Day parades. The celebrations became a way for the Irish to connect with their roots after they moved to America.

Fun Facts:

The shamrock: According to legend St. Patrick used the three leaf clover (or shamrock) to explain the Trinity. The plant commonly sold today as shamrock is usually trifolium minus, a small yellow-flowered clover with four leaves.

Dyeing the river green: The practice of dyeing the river green started in Chicago in 1962, when city officials decided to dye a portion of the Chicago River green.

Corn beef and cabbage: This is an Irish American dish. 19th century Irish American immigrants were so poor they couldn’t afford certain meals. On St. Patrick’s Day, the best meal they could pay for was beef and cabbage. It became a staple for the holiday for decades However, for many Irish people, Corned Beef is now too “poor” or plain to eat on a holiday, so they routinely make something more celebratory.

But, how did we come to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the United States? North America has only observed this holiday since the late eighteenth century. Although not a legal holiday in the USA, St. Patrick’s Day is widely recognized and celebrated throughout the country with Irish festivals, parades, food like corn beef and cabbage, excessive Guinness beer drinking, prominent displaying of the color green and Irish traditions. On any given day 5.5 million pints of Guinness, the famous Irish stout brand, are consumed around the world. But on St. Patrick’s Day, that number more than doubles to 13 million pints, said Beth Davies Ryan, global corporate-relations director of Guinness. In addition, the consumption of green beer has become part of the tradition.

Unfortunately, few St. Patrick’s Day revelers have a clue about St. Patrick, the historical figure, according to modern day experts on the subject. But now you can offer some valid insight about this poplar nationwide party day, and while you’re at it please ensure that a designated driver is identified if the celebration involves a location away from your home.

Don’t Let Bad Reviews Cloud Your Judgment

Don’t Let Bad Reviews Cloud Your Judgment designed by fivenson studios in ann arbor michigan

How To Deal With Bad Reviews

Bad reviews sting like saltwater in a cut, especially if you think you’re doing everything right. But we all have rough days, sometimes something is overlooked, and on occasion you run into that customer who is really hard to please. Unfortunately, in the end, a bad review is a bad review, and it shouldn’t be overlooked, ignored or deleted.

Before you let a bad review throw you into a tailspin, take a deep breath and relax. Something good could come from the mishap, although you may have to work a bit to see it clearly. As Bill Gates said, “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” So regardless of the unpleasant details, there’s probably a silver lining trying to shine through the stormy situation.

Take a moment to understand your customer’s complaint. Consumer feedback is the number-one way to understand how to serve your shoppers better. Reviews help you see what customers like and don’t like, so you know how to better your product or service.

After the initial surge of anger or despair ebbs, you have a chance to publicly offer a solution and give transparent customer service that shows you care—which is one of the best ways to impact your brand’s image.

Customer Service: The Key To Keep Them Coming Back

Customer Service The Key To Keep Them Coming Back-designed by fivenson studios in ann arbor michigan

Customer Service

Small businesses must take advantage of every possible competitive advantage to survive and thrive. Strong customer service will distinguish you from your competitors and contribute to the strength of your business reputation. Make it a point to provide the best service to every customer and potential customer.

What does it take to keep customers coming back to your business? It’s simple: Every customer interaction has to be a positive one. Sound like an impossible standard? It isn’t. Listen, it’s impossible to satisfy 100% of your customers during 100% of their transactions. There will be dissatisfied customers—the way your small business handles those dissatisfied customers is the key to keep them coming back.

Excellent service begins with companywide policies and procedures built around positive customer interactions. How do you want your employees to treat customers? What are the standard offerings employees should provide customers? Most importantly, what procedures should employees follow when a customer is dissatisfied?

“I started my business because I was a frustrated customer and I knew there had to be a better way,” said Stuart Hunter, founder of roll: bicycle shops. “Finding the problems that customers encounter goes hand-in-hand with finding the problems that a business needs to solve. It’s been really critical for us to understand what the roadblocks are to better serve customers and to ignore the way that things have always been done.”

Once you’ve determined how employees should address customers’ requests, you’ll need to develop training around those values. In addition to training, consider ways of rewarding employees who carry out your policies and deliver fantastic customer service.

“My advice to other business owners is that you have to empower your employees,” said Steve Ozment, co-owner of Flowerama Columbus flower shops. “They are seeing things from a different angle, seeing things in a different way than you can see them. More often than not, your employees have the answers if you just ask them. What do you think? How would you handle this? It’s amazing, the solutions that we’ve come up with over the years.”

You don’t have to start from scratch building your customer service policies. Here are a few proven strategies:

  • Every customer interaction should be polite and professional
  • Employees should greet in-person customers pleasantly and quickly
  • Customers should receive the same courtesy and service from employees over the telephone, in emails and on social media as they would in person
  • Employees should address complaints politely, to the best of their ability—and they should know when to involve management in fixing a customer issue
  • Encourage employees to call you in to help satisfy a customer anytime they feel overwhelmed

Pay close attention to that last pointer. Dissatisfied customers can be very challenging, and defensive, stressed-out employees can make bad situations worse. A truly awful interaction could cost you a customer and an employee if things escalate out of control. As a small business owner, your customers have made the choice to support you; show them they made the right decision. Make yourself available to support your employees and keep your customers happy.

Of course, you may not always be available to remedy every customer complaint. Give your employees your blessing to put customers in touch with you directly. Respond to any and all complaints within 24 hours. Take the time to really listen to your customers’ feedback. It may be difficult—after all, you’re deeply invested in your business—but valid criticism can help improve your business in ways you may not have considered. A customer willing to take the time to tell you where you went wrong and give you another shot is valuable.

Approach every customer interaction as an opportunity to improve. Develop policies and procedures that instill that value in every single employee, even those who rarely deal directly with customers. This will ensure that customer service is part of your company’s DNA.

Remember, a bad experience doesn’t need to be the end of your relationship with a customer. How you handle those situations will define your company’s culture and public reputation. Not only can you overcome a complaint to form a long-term bond, you might also generate good word-of-mouth advertising from addressing a complaint quickly and thoroughly

Quote of the Day

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant."

Robert Louis Stevenson

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. Robert Louis Stevenson Read (1)

How often do you look at your “grades?” We are taught to judge ourselves/our successes/our days, on results. Most often, those results are “tangible.” There is a problem there… our souls are intangible. If we look at the quality of our life by putting a priority on things or checklists or what we can hold, we are missing the seeds we plant. If a gardener focused only on the fruit their trees produced, the roots would wither and die.

It IS important to look at our successes, our things, and be grateful. However, it is even more important to look to cultivate the soil, to plan for the future, to nourish the soul. If we would only look at each day before we go to bed and think “Did I do my best?” or “Did I help others today?” If we asked these questions rather than “Did I finish my checklist?” or “Did I finish that presentation?”, “Did I clock in/out?” If we asked questions like “Did I truly feel today?” or “Did I let my soul shine?” – How much richer would our soil be?

We should focus on enriching our lives by focusing on our intangible fires, our purpose rather than only on the results of that purpose. When we allow time and energy to ensure the ground is fertile, our hearts are happy, our minds are focused and our soul is energized – we will harvest amazing fruit for generations.

So by all means, reap the harvest, but put even more time into improving the soil/soul.

How Creative Visuals Can Sell Every Product

How Creative Visuals Can Sell Every Product-michigan graphic design and web design studios

Creative Visuals Can Sell Every Product

A first-class product can become popular only if it is given special care and attention. The quality of a product is the key element of every sale, but some other business matters are important when sales need to be increased. Among those other aspects is definitely the visual appeal of every product. The visual identity can either sell or kill a product.

creative visuals 2

Fresh ideas from the past

With such a large number of multinational companies selling their goods throughout the world, it is extremely difficult to stay creative and unique. This is why modern designers are looking back at the past times to find inspiration for new product packages. Since the retro style has conquered the fashion industry with the development of the hipster subculture, the same trend can breathe new life into the packaging industry, too. Here you can have a look at some outstanding vintage designs for modern packaging. Simply put – when you do not know how to create, you can just recreate.

 

Unique solutions for important clients

The most common thing for every manufacturer is to pack their products in the same boxes and packages. When your business revenue and productivity depend on mass production, it is the only reasonable strategy. Nonetheless, astute business owners should make some exceptions. For instance, if you want to launch a special line of products with a limited number of items and special target audience, you should invest in different visual branding. When aiming at VIP clients, you have to address them in accordance with their status. A wise manager will pay more for exquisite design of unique products for special clients. It is a great tactic for strengthening your brand and giving it an additional value.

 

TV still rules

Small businesses often avoid making TV commercials, mostly due to high expenses such projects might cause. However, television still remains a powerful medium, although less influential than twenty years ago. If a businessperson wants people to find out more about products, they have to come up with some sort of TV advertising. By giving your potential buyers a chance to see your products on TV, you entice them visually to buy them. If a business has a limited budget, you can still afford some TV advertising, but go for local TV-stations. It will address your local target audience and bring a higher return on investment.

 

Saving while making profit

Redesign is one of the key elements of striking and appealing visual image. While some products should always stay visually the same, the majority of products should be packed and presented in different ways. This is why companies launch different marketing campaigns. What is vital here is to save assets when your revenue is high. You can do that by opting for affordable printing services, as well as reliable and inexpensive suppliers. The money you save that way should be used for new visual branding when you decide it is time to give your business and products a new shape. That way your products will always look fresh, design-wise.
creative visuals

Colors dictate shopping

One of the reasons new products should be accompanied by original marketing campaigns and packaging innovations is their new purpose. If you use an old marketing idea to present a new product to the public, it will be a failure. Buyers want to be treated in a special way. This is why colors are so important when it comes to shopping. They affect our brains in different ways and make things look more attractive, depending on the color choice. Find out more about the connection between colors and products packaging on the CNN website.

 

The quality is crucial to make first-time buyers of a product become its loyal users. But it is creative packaging and advertising ideas that can sell every product. Today it is not necessary to invest a lot to raise popularity of a product or brands. However, those investments need to be smart to ensure the development of a business and its products.
