Top 4 Logo Design Pitfalls
One of our graphic designers was just telling me about No. 3 -- it was something I had never considered yet is so important. Thanks for warning others!
Very good advice for any designer. An additional pitfall would be designers often creating a logo that is trendy at the time it is produced. A logo needs to have longevity and if a designer falls into the trap of designing an identity incorporating elements of over-used current trends, the image will soon be oh-so-2010. One of my design career Jeffisms is: "When a graphics industry expert proclaims something a current 'design trend' it is a 'breaking news' message to designers everywhere that the specific 'trend' should be avoided from that moment on - rather than followed by a thundering flock of design sheep."
Thanks for the insightful comment Jeff. Great point!
