These days, it’s easy to create your own logo or remotely hire individuals for as little as $5. Yet, some agencies still charge hundreds, or thousands of dollars to create them.
Why is this? And which one should I choose?
Regardless of who you hire here’s what you should get:
CMYK are the colors you’ll see when it’s printed, and RGB are the colors you’ll see on a screen. These will not match if the designer doesn’t intentionally match them.
So that blue you love on your computer screen could come out teal or even green on your business cards.
It’s easy to overlook and only takes a few minutes to create both versions in most cases.
Once you have a logo created you should use a server like Google Image Search to upload your logo and see if it returns any logos that are too similar.
In our experience, even if two logos are similar it’s extremely rare the original author will notice, much less care to server you with the legal demand to change the logo, much less sue for damages. If you’re worried about it, you should consult with an attorney that specializes in trademarks.
The importance of this varies a bit with each industry and specifically the demographic you’re reaching. But in general doing a little research on the logos in the industry will help you draft an original and memorable logo that is somewhat descriptive of the business. Which can be important if you’re in an industry that has a lot of competition or is not well understood, or your business model is especially unique.

We’ve done so for almost the entire time we’ve been in business (circa 2005). Over time we’ve gradually discovered the limitations with WordPress but ultimately decided that the alternatives were just that: an […]
I have a knack for hitting every possible obstacle. It stems from the early days of my education and is something I’ve had to hobble through life trying to mitigate. Since the internet though, I’ve found that there are many others like me. So when I try a new technology I am in the habit […]
