"How much?" is the single most frequently asked question and it cannot be easily answered because every company has different needs and expectations.

You have to take a number of factors into consideration when designing a logo/brand identity, such as how many concepts need to be presented, how many revisions will be needed, how much research is required, how big the business is and so on. The best approach is to draw up a customized quote for each client and to do this you should learn how to price your designs, which is another topic in itself "How Much Should I Charge".

Being smart in determining what you should charge for your work will hopefully allow you to 'work less, charge more' in the future."

By knowing what other brands have succeeded in and why they have succeeded gives you great insight and you can apply that attained knowledge to your own work.

In the west, motion towards the left of the stage suggests backwards, regressive movement, while motion towards the right feels progressive and forward-thinking. This culture-based un-derstanding is formed because we read from left to right. Things are different in the far and middle East, so make sure you understand where your principal market is.

Logos must to work in black and white as well as colors. If your logo design uses color to convey meaning, think about how you can reflect that meaning when the color is removed. Sometimes this may mean changing the contrast relationship between different elements of your design so that they still convey meaning when reproduced in monotones.

Most clients need a vector version of the logo in order to be able to scale it up, cut it out and col-or separate it. Equally, you need something that will be legible in lowest denominator media such as newsprint, and work online and on mobile devices. Once you have something, print it out. Print variations in type weight and style, as well as in-verted versions of your logotype and mark. Print large versions and paste them to the wall or lay them out on the floor. Look at them for as much time as it takes to really let things sink in.

As well as print you need to come up with variants that show how it can work on computer screens, mobile devices and other "real world" uses, whether on a uniform or a billboard at Old Trafford. Show all these variations to indicate how thought things through how (if needed) clients' logo could be used or teeny-tiny on a business franked letter.

Think about creating an insignia version of the logo for when it occupies small spaces, and per-haps a clear and a greyscale version. This will go a long way to proving to client they're getting value for money and a logo that can be used everywhere.

The logo design may need to be altered to work on different media, such as being reproduced in cotton embroidery It's quite common to have a slightly different version of a logo for reproduction on clothing. The best way to get this right is to talk to an embroiderer, shoe-manufacturer, etc, as appropriate.

If I can, show it to as many different nationalities as possible, especially for a design that is going to be used globally. I never know whether something that looks completely innocent in one cul-ture may look unintentionally rude, offensive, or both in another. For example, in 1998, the Ni-ke Air Bakin made national headlines when Arab-American groups thought the way "Air" was written on the shoe looked too similar to "Allah" written in Arabic.

Even if you only have a passing interest in graphic design, it's fascinating to see what the BP logo looked like in 1930, or to chat about how the Coca-Cola identity has evolved (or not) over the past 125 years. Ever wondered how the Penguin logo started its life? Or what Shell's logo looked like in 1901?
