Startup Logo Design Tips

1. Icons

Icons for startup logos

An icon is a popular choice for startup logos as it clearly conveys the type of business you are. There are a few different types of icons: Abstract, geometric, pictorial, crests and emblems, interactive, and custom. Each type of icon has its own meaning and purpose.

Many startups use abstract icons in order to creatively indicate what they do in a think-outside-the-box way. The symbol might not necessarily mimic an object that exists in real life, but is rather a unique image that’s designed to express something specific about your brand. 

Let’s run with an example here. Say you’re starting a subscription box service for budding authors. You could go with a straightforward pictorial icon of a book or pencil. Or you could play around with abstract images combining geometry and negative space, for example. 

I know that might sound general, but the idea here is that the sky is the limit! As long as you make sure the icon you chose reflects your startup’s values, doesn’t take up the majority of the overall design, and that it complements all other elements.

2. Typography

The font you choose will convey much of your logo’s personality, so it’s important to find the one that best expresses the traits of your startup that you think your audience will connect with.

Serifs are commonly used in startup logos that want to portray an elegant, respectable brand. But if you want to appear as an approachable brand, you’d want to go with a script font to best convey that message.

Remember that when you’re creating your logo, you can adjust the font in the logo editor until you’re positive that you’ve landed on the right one for your startup. 

3. Color Palette

Colors influence our perception and make us feel a certain way, even if we don’t always realize it on a conscious level. That’s why choosing your startup logo color palette must be a carefully thought out decision.

When designing a startup logo you have the opportunity to choose from a wide array of different colors. Going back to the book subscription box example, you might want to express creativity and intellect, in which case the color yellow would be best. 

Some startups have recently taken to gradient logo design, a trend that was popular in the ’90s and is now making a comeback. Others, however, gravitate towards blue, silver, and black palettes, which signify reliability, innovation, and professionalism. 

As long as you choose a color palette that stands out you should be good to go, but make sure that your logo colors emphasize the traits about your startup that you want your customers to associate with your brand.

4. Layout

You want your logo to look amazing no matter where it’s being showcased, right? That’s why you need to keep in mind how you use icons, colors, and fonts because it needs to be easy to reproduce and scale. 

Design a logo that you can replicate and resize for your business cards, merchandise, and marketing materials with minimal fuss. 

As a startup, chances are your business exists online, so you’ll want to focus on optimizing the logo layout for your social media profile. Conversely, for the box subscription service startup example, they’d want a logo layout that scales well and looks good on printed merchandise. 

So that it looks good everywhere you use it, aim for a layout that preserves the quality of your logo despite it being resized.
