Chapter 1: What Are the Benefits of a Well-designed logo?
A logo is a memory cue. Every time someone sees the logo, they remember how they felt whenever they saw that logo. A professionally designed logo is more than that. It is designed to grab the right client’s attention in a sea of distractions. It lends credibility and tells a story.
They are also better designed! They are not stiff and generic, like the ones in logo builders. They are designed in printable colors, and they scale to the right sizes. A professional even gives you multiple formats so you can use them anywhere!

Logos can be broken down into seven general types. Each one has a specific audience to appeal to, tone, and challenges to their use. We go into the pros and cons of each later in the guide.
The type of logo you choose will make a massive impact on how you can use them and the tone you set for your business. We highly encourage you to investigate each one in more depth to see which is the best fit.
