Logo Design Prices
The cost for a professional graphic designer to produce a logo design for you is based on a number of factors, as follows:
The logo concept and colour schemes.
Normally, a designer will play around with a few basic logo design ideas and colour schemes. Personally speaking I first like to sketch out ideas with pen and paper or a drawing app on my ipad. If you have very specific ideas for a logo, this can reduce your costs as the designer doesn’t have to do much thinking. Unless your idea is rubbish of course, in which a case a good designer will gently steer you in the right direction or take elements of your design and improve upon them. When starting from scratch however, a designer will settle on a few ideas he/she feels worth investing more time in.
Mocking up some digital designs.
At this point your designer will begin bringing ideas to life with a professional image editing software such as Adobe Illustrator or Adobe InDesign (these are the software products we use). They are generally quite expensive to buy and your designer will have spent a lot, and I mean a lot of time learning how to use these products and perfecting their craft. Other software products can be used but we find they do not achieve that really crisp and crystal clear finish you need for a logo design.
Depending on how good your logo designer is and how long he or she takes to produce some decent looking logo designs will determine how much you pay, for a designer it’s all about time and effort. You should also consider a designer’s experience when choosing who to go with, too little experience and you may end up paying over the odds for a sub quality design, too much experience and you will end up with a fantastic design but the reputation of the designer may dictate that he or she charges a lot more than others. A good rule of thumb is to check your designer’s client list or portfolio and ask yourself if you like what you see and are the type of companies a similar size to yours; middle of the road is what you should be aiming for. That being said, there is no harm in approaching multiple logo designers for quotes to compare. If you prefer that personal touch and like to discuss things face to face you should search for logo design in your local area, we roughly coverNorth Wales,Chester,Cheshire,LiverpoolandManchesterfor our clients.
Alterations and final polish
Once the mock logo designs are complete, your designer will issue them to you for review. Be prepared to say no if you don’t like any of the designs, you should not feel pressured into choosing a design just because your designer likes it. Also, before choosing your designer be sure to check their pricing policyor ask them about it. Check if your designer has to return to the drawing board will you be charged again and if so is there a cap on the amount you will pay, you don’t want to be stuck going round in circles. If you decide to choose us our pricing is clear, our minimum fee is £25 and the maximum you will ever pay for a logo is £100 no matter how many designs we produce.
