Crafting logos with impact

Consumers see more logos today than ever before, but they only remember a select few. Great logos embody their brand, tell a unique story, speak values loudly – they stand for something.

While most brands know what they stand for, realizing their ideals in a symbol is a daunting challenge. And more than 17 years of building brands have taught us that memorable logos don’t happen by accident.

At Blue Fountain Media, our logo design process is informed by high-quality research and sound strategy. Our team goes hands-on with clients to create a logo that makes a real impression – something your audience can rally behind and rep with pride.

Strategy to storytelling

Smart brands know a logo is a powerful storytelling device. Today’s iconic brand symbols enjoy their status because they have instant associations with moments, emotions, and attitudes. But they don’t start like this. They earn that space in the consumer’s mind.

To forge this bond with an audience, your brand must take the time to learn and listen. That process opens up big questions about the brand you are, and the brand you want to be one, five, or ten years down the line.

Impactful brand storytelling should make waves, but if it doesn’t have a foundation of research justifying it, success is just luck. That’s why our logo design process starts with research every time.

Getting your point of view

Our process begins at the source – with the client. Frank conversations about the state of a brand are integral to creating a logo that reflects (or positively changes) brand identity. Questions about external and internal brand perception, identity and aspirations, and competitive whitespace act as our compass as we move toward research, ideation and logo creation.

Laying our foundation

Research and study are at the core of our logo design process. Before even our earliest sketches, we add context by spotting trends, studying competitors, and identifying promising audience segments. This lays a strategic foundation to guide the rest of the project and solidifies our understanding of brand identity, client vision, customer sentiment, and more.

Setting an artistic foundation

The themes we’ve pulled from research allow our team to curate a range of materials for design and logo inspiration. From mood boards to competitor research, this is our chance to see what does (and doesn’t) resonate with brand stakeholders.

Crafting the heart of a brand

In a collaborative process, our designers and strategists meet to act on insights, inspiration and client feedback. It’s at this stage that we translate our body of research into logo concepts, which is as exciting for us as it is for you.

Clients are never shut out of the logo design process. We take an iterative approach to the approval process, presenting concepts to stakeholders, gathering their input, and refining until we’ve checked all the boxes.
