Now that you know what a logo is supposed to do, and what it should represent, you now must learn about what makes a great logo aka; The Basic Rules and Principles of Effective Logo Design.

1. A logo must be simple

A simple logo design allows for easy recognition and allows the logo to be versatile & memorable. Good logos feature something unexpected or unique without being overdrawn.

2. A logo must be memorable

Following closely behind the principle of simplicity, is  memorability. An effective logo design should be memorable and this is achieved by having a simple, yet, appropriate logo.

3. A logo must be timeless

An effective logo should be timeless – that is, it should stand the test of time. Need to think whether the logo will be  still  effective in about 10, 20, 50 years?

4. A logo must be versatile

An effective logo should be able to work across a variety of mediums and applications. For this reason a logo should be designed in vector format, to ensure that it can be scaled to any size. The logo must work in just one colour too.

5. A logo must be appropriate

Pingosition the logo should be appropriate for its intended purpose. For example, if you are designing a a logo for children’s toys store, it would be appropriate to use a childish font & color scheme. This would not be so appropriate for a law firm.

For further reading on the rules and principles of great logo design I highly recommend, you  to read the logo design tips from Logo Factory, before continuing and also the article “Why logo design does not cost $5.00.” You may also wish to read “How NOT To Design A Logo.”

Really, human GREED did this!Westerners wanted MORE than they earned, and now Westerners will receive far far less than they earerd.Easteennrs are truly just copying the example of greedy Westerners: everyone wants and demands MORE than they earn.The consequence of GREED is that the future will be dimmer than the past and present.Western children – who will soon be enslaved by the East – were first enslaved by the West!P.S.

  26. É unha iniciativa do máis interesante e útil, pero non é a única solución ó indiscriminado gasto en iluminación que temos, a mala colocación das farolas e o seu mal uso son máis importantes.En Cambados podemos comprobar que hai rúas que están totalmente iluminadas, incluso demasiado o haber farolas acendidas cada poucos metros de maneira esaxerada, e sen embargo temos rúas que o non ser principais non teñen iluminación. Se se repartisen mellor aforrariamos moitísimos cartos mentres que este novo invento non chegue a nós.

  27. Wow! Great to find a post knocking my socks off!

  28. Didn't the Roman Empire have PR issues? Didn't it try to pass itself off as a republic but failed to do so within a couple decades?You gotta hand it to 'democracy' for keeping the blinds up for way, way longer, especially against our much greater epistemic and communication technologies.

  31. I’m not easily impressed but you’ve done it with that posting.

    1. :La phrase « l’impopulaire austérité de Benoît XVI »n’est pas athée, au pire elle est anticléricale. Il faut pas non utiliser le terme « croyants » comme synonyme de &lc&so; aatholiques&nbup;qraquo;.

  32. Stands back from the keyboard in amazement! Thanks!

    1. that in large quantities it’s known to have a bit of one. So I guess if you’re using a ton of it in something, then it’s going to be so ovlmehewringly sweet and full of it that it’ll end up having a bit of an aftertaste. Nothing I used it in showed even a hint of it, though…it really did taste like I’d used sugar. I used it in a few different dishes that I fed to other people and didn’t tell them it was different until ‘after’, so I could get their opinions before/after, too.

    1. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I&#;1278ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  36. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

  38. Calling all cars, calling all cars, we’re ready to make a deal.

    1. The search engine market is absolutely monopolized by Google. At Squidoo, we believe it’s important to give lensmasters the tools to succeed on other platforms in order to decrease reliance on a single source of traffic. The goal of Open Graph tagging is to help Facebook understand the type of content that is being shared. It’s not much different from the way meta and schema.org tags are applied for SEO purposes. It’s just one tool in the chest. Completely optional. If you prefer not to associate with Facebook, there are no negative cosenquences.

  40. Felt so hopeless looking for answers to my questions…until now.

  41. Thanks for this, it's very helpful!Being a newbie at C# and Windows Forms Applications, I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out why the application was never receiving anything back from my Arduino; I had to add the following line of code to the ArduinoSerial constructor:<code>serialPort1.DataReceived += new System.IO.Ports.SerialDataReceivedEventHandler(serialPort1_DataReceived);</code>Otherwise, the serialPort1_DataReceived event handler never gets called. This is probably an obvious requirement to more advanced programmers, but hopefully it helps out other n00bs like me that come across your article.Thanks again!

  42. All you have to know about Joseph Romm is that he claims that nuclear fission is unaffordable because we spent nearly $100 billion on it whereas “renewable” energy is cheap because it has a predicted price tag of only pennies per day per household.When you do the arithmetic, it turns out that the cost of nukes is also only pennies per day per household and that’s a fact, not a prediction.I think it’s illegal to use Romm’s kind of comparison to sell something financial, but energy policy has different standards.

Vielä lisäten että mitä kenties vaativat että toimivat kyseisissä maissaan.Harmaa ts.pimeä talous on kaikissa muodoissaan tuomittavaa myös päättäjienkin tasoilla,sillä se juuri osoittaa : Kuplatalouden ongelmia !Politiikalla on aina omat &#8s#0;kasvon2a&28221; että todelliset kasvot.

  57. Hmm, cures for blandness… I know that I often find myself upping the quantities of fresh herbs in recipes (it’s easier to overdo dried herbs), so maybe more of the parsley and coriander next time and more than a pinch of cayenne. Acid at the end will definitely help to brighten the taste, so a squeeze of lemon or maybe lime is worth a try. Also, if the tomatoes weren’t very ripe or sweet, then a little bit of extra sugar can help. If all else fails, you could do worse than serve the lot with a sprinkling of maldon salt!

  58. Alright alright alright that’s exactly what I needed!

    1. Também acho que o Serra está bem na entrevista e entre ele e dilma, existe uma fossa insventponíral. Se tiverem tempo, vi um artigo de José Golbemberg, na Folha de Hoje, tendo como título "O Brasil, o Irã e o Protocolo Adicional", trazendo no texto que se continuarmos com essa politica externa "o Irã de hoje é o Brasil de amanhã". ctl

We need to get back to it ASAP.Secondly, close down the borders.Thirdly, expose the European union for what it is, meanigly, a comunist pipe dream under the guise of “union”. Fourthly, make the ties with the USA and Israel stronger, and form a “Anti-Dhimmitude” Aliance between Europe, the USA and Israel.Basically, be proud of being european and (if that is your case) Christian, and not be ashamed of it.

  81. I'll first say that I completely understand if there are distribution restrictions – however, what I am disappointed by is global feature. And if they had to feature it this way, why not put a line in the feature list saying "only available to US viewers" rather than getting us all interested and then blocking us??
