Brand vs Logo

Posted on January 01, 2014

People often wonder what the difference is between a logo and a brand. In order to have a successful business, it is advisable to have a good logo and a brand that brings positive feelings to your customers. To accomplish this, you need to plan both. When considering this, a good starting point is to contemplate how you want your business to be seen by others. What is a logo? A logo is a small mark that becomes the 'face' of a business. It is an expression which makes up your brand and is likely to shape the foundation of your brands overall approach. Logos are usually abstract expressions of an idea and the better the idea, the more unique, adaptable and valuable it will be. A logo that's familiar, fresh and professional will be most effective. Your logo and your brand are related because, as your logo is the 'face' of your business, the brand is how people see your business as a whole. Your brand is the "personality" of your business and can determine the impression that you leave on your clients and customers. Brands that appeal to you can be identified by branding elements that are not the logo. An underlying idea determines all these other brand elements and they can be identified by their typeface, color, typeface, illustration, or even copywriting, or a combination of these elements. In conclusion, a logo and a brand is not the same, but they should both be imperative parts of your business. By thinking about the branding side you can determine which values you want to communicate through your logo.
