Create Contrast

Contrast can easily be achieved with the right color scheme. Not only does it make the logo stand out, but it also creates visual dynamic. If your logo is letter-based, it's as simple as using bold letters.

Use Negative Space

Your logo should have enough breathing room. Avoid placing images or words too close together to avoid cramping. Lastly, don't be afraid to use white space!

Add Texture

Using shadows, layers, or noise can help increase texture. Texture is important because it creates richness and depth to your logo.

Keep Your Colors Balanced

Maintain a color scheme that does not exceed five colors. The colors you choose will determine how viewers perceive your company. Warm colors such as red, yellow, and orange,or cool colors such as blue, green, and purple, are a good place to start. Visit Abode's kuler.com to explore thousands of beautiful color schemes.

Geometry, Shapes, and Symmetry

Last but not least, think about the shapes you will be using. Squares, circles, and rectangles are good shapes to begin the process, but a truly original logo will implement more than just that. Think about the concept of geometry, sizing, and symmetrical balance. Do you want to have an organic shape with heavy curves, or edgy shapes with sharp corners? Brainstorm and get creative!
