Poorly Designed Logo. Did you design t logo yourself or you hired a novice to design it? Well, most companies/organizations fail to allocate enough budget to design a unique identity. They fail to realize that a logo gives recognition in the market and stirs the feel of value and trust in the cusumers.

When The Business Expands. As the company grows to acquire new position in a different market. It finds a way into a new market. This is the right time to revitalize your logo. The descision here would be, "which part or element of your current logo should be retained?"

When Two Companies/Businesses Merge. When two organizations merge and there is a need for a new name. This calls for a new logo to represent the newly formed association.

Is Your Logo Timeless? Can your current logo retain its value for the next decade? Big brands like Coca-cola and Google slightly change in the past, but these changes never affects the main/original idea of the logo, just a little modern feel to it as time passes.

Your Logo Is Outdated. Your fonts or logo icon has a "grand-pa" feel to it (Ouch!). You need a new and modern feel to it without necessarily changing the design completely.

Compatability With Modern Technology. Does your logo scale well during printing? Most times, multi-colored logos are more technical and costly to print and this can be the right reason to have your logo changed.

There you have it. 6 appropriate time and reasons as to when you should have a new identity for your business. Don't get me wrong... there are logos that have existed for over 50years without change, depending on certain factors. This depends on the category of the business, like fashion. Unlike others, like technology.

Logo Design Tips For Beginners


As a beginner there are things you need to adhere to. Certain logo rules you must take into consideration as you commence your logo design process. I’m not going to bother you with long talk, so we’ll just go straight to the main course of this article.

Think Big. To win the hearts of your consumers/audience you need a memorable logo, not just combination of symbols and texts, but thinking something big that will capture the minds of consumers/audience. This process can determine the success or failure of the business in the sense that, a big logo can compete favorably in the big leagues (brand market).

READ ALSO: What You Need To Know About Your Logo

Your Use of Text. Your choice of text or typography is very important. Would you take MTN seriously if they used Comic Sans as their font? Fonts have their own personality and they explain to the audience what they should expect from the brand.

Look at Your Logo From Every Angle. Your logo may look fine and sexy after designing against a white background, but this logo will probably go on marketing materials. You should see from every angle how the logo blends perfectly with any background color before you conclude your project.

Use of Color. Color means a lot when it comes to designing a logo. They give meaning to everything you see. Do you think the logos of those popular brands out there would look great if they switched colors with their biggest competitor? (Absolutely, not!). Then you must know what every color means on its own and how best to use it.

Avoid Rainbow Colors. 95% out of the world’s top brands use one or two colors for their logo. If you must use multiple colors, make sure those colors are compatible with each other and also see to it that the logo will do well in a single color.

Be Original. Don’t copy another designer’s work. There is nothing with checking out the work of other designers for inspiration. Learn from their style and carve a unique style for yourself. You don’t need to have a one-on-one interaction with them before you can be as good as they are. Copying other people’s work or ideas is just undeniably wrong. Stay original!

Use of Symbols/Characters. Like I said before, a logo is more than just the combination of texts and symbols. It goes far beyond that. A tiny displacement in its character/symbol will change the general idea of the logo. Be smart and precise with your logo.

Use White Spaces Appropriately. White or negative spaces are hidden characters in a logo, they carry intended message about the logo and most of all make the logo look unique. It gives your logo balance and can act as another element without crowding the logo. See example of negative space logo below


Use of Effects. Avoid the use of irrelevant effects. Go easy on the use of effects. Less is more and these effects might just complicate things.

Keep it Simple. The simpler the logo the more recognizable it will be. The simpler the logo, more beautiful it will be. So now, keep it simple and real.

Stick to these simple rules, it’s just a matter of time before you’ll become good as a logo designer

Happy Independence, Nigeria at 55


A happy independence day to all Nigerians, as we celebrate Nigeria at 55, today 1st October 2015. #DrumRoooooooooll.


Its been a long time coming but thanks to God for another year added in unity and strength. You might think the nation us not where its suppose to be, but see, we are nit where we use to be. We're moving forward.
Cold-chill ran down my spine as the game of 2015 presidential election played, i pictured a Nigeria in war and anarchy. But the finals proved beyond doubt that there's nothing more life can throw at us that we can't control or survive in.

I know most people will say, "Nigeria is a failure". But we believe in Nigeria. As long as those who believe, remains loyal to the nation, progress will take its due course.

I'm here smiling and saying in The President's voice... "Afi baiday my fiful!" I'll just seat down here, enjoy my groundnut and avoid eye contact.

What You Need To Know About Your Logo


Generally, to the public, a logo serves as an instant reminder of a company, business or product. To the business man or business owner, a logo is a point of recognition differentiating its business/product from other brands. To us designers, it has always been challenging to incorporating client’s ideas into one single design.


See, there are millions of logos designed out there, and this at times becomes challenging to come up with something different. How do you come up with a high-quality logo free from copyright and meets all what your company/business stands for? How do you get a logo that gets noticed and remembered?

In this article, we will be looking at what you should be expecting to have as your logo. Continue reading and maybe you might come up with a good concept on designing your own logo.

Good concept for a logo can come from anywhere, anything but not from just anybody; one cannot casually expect to buy a Photoshop or Corel Draw software and start designing what comes to mind the moment it is installed. There’s much more to that, and that’s what most designers are doing wrong.

A creative logo is distinctive, appropriate, practical, graphic, simple in form, and carries an intended message. To do these, it must follow the basic 

PRINCIPLES OF A LOGO DESIGN:
SIMPLICITY. A simple logo is easily recognizable and can be used across any colored background, thus, making branding easier and more attractive.

ENDURING. An enduring logo should stand the test of time, the logo should be “future indemnified” meaning that it should still be effective in say 10, 20 to 50 years’ time.

MEMORABLE. There is every need for your logo to strike a connection in the hearts of your customers. When they hear of your product the first thing that should come to their minds is your logo. Following closely behind the principle of simplicity, memorability comes next, and a memorable logo can be effective if it follows the simplicity principle.

VERSATILITY. A logo with this principle should work across variety of mediums and applications. There will come a time when the business will need to expand branding due to growth, this principle will effectively work for you.

Like I said before in the beginning of this article, there are millions of logo designs out there. Do well to avoid using ready-made templates to re-create your brand. 

Trust your designer; you’ll seek for another logo design in a hurry! A logo consists of two elements; a wordmark and a symbol. Whether your brand can use a logotype depends on the kind of name the brand has.

If after this you still think designing a logo is simple and an easy task, please think again. There’s more to representing a brand’s visual identity than just placing a name in a square and calling it a day. In fact, designing a logo is not a day’s job, every masterpiece requires adequate time.

At this junction, I will advise you get a professional designer to design your brand. Leave the job to a professional, TRUST YOUR DESIGNER! He is responsible for creating design solutions that have visual impact. His role involves listening to clients and understanding their needs before making design decisions.

Barka De Sallah!


Today 24th September, 2015. I happily, joyfully, honestly, with Jesus joy in my heart... okay, that's enough! I want to wish all my Muslim friends out there Barka De Sallah!


Seriously, when i hear the word "Sallah" all that comes to my mind is "ram" "meat" and more meat. It's that time of the year again when my friends are generous with meat, lovable to the bones... they've been all that on an ordinary day but this day just adds something else to it. Is it the ram?

Now that i am identifying myself with you all today, will i get any meat? will i be part of the dining and wining? #Seriously! i want the taste of meat on my buds.

Well now you know what inspired the image on this post. But still, am curious... Please someone clearify this, what is "Sallah?"

Anatomical Logo That Shows Which Organs Of Your Body Are Affected By Drinking Coke


Following the recent design by a Nicaraguan artist, Fabio Pantoja, his anatomical coke logo shows the parts of your body/organs that are affected from excessive consumption of coke. According to Fabio, his main purpose of designing the logo is to see if he can stop consuming the product, as a Coca-cola lover.

"More than a critic to CocaCola, it's a critic to myself, to see if I can finally stop drinking this poison once and for all!"



This logo just put me in a bad relationship with this drink. After seeing this, i wonder how much quantity i have actually consumed since i found love in it. How much damage has it caused already? This logo just showed me how coke has been unfair to me in exchange for my money. Do you still want to consume another bottle of coke?

Facebook to Introduce Dislike Button



Finally! I’ve always waited for this, and voila, we’re all expecting it anxiously. Mark Zuckerberg; Co-founder and CEO of Facebook, recently announced its current development to add a dislike button to Facebook. Following the high request for a dislike button from Facebook users, Mark gave a reply during a question and answer section in Menlo Park, California.

 “Probably hundreds of people have asked about this, and today is a special day because today is the day that I actually get to say we are working on it, and are very close to shipping a test of it”.

Precisely in 2009, users have requested for a “dislike” button. All with different motive on its usage. But don't worry, Facebook isn't going to be an online fight club where people will use the dislike button to vote down others posts

The first impression to most people about adding a "dislike" button to Facebook would be to hurt someone by voting down their post, isn't it? Mark explained that, the button is to come into place when one wants to express empathy, not every moment is a good moment.

"It doesn't make sense, whenever someone reports the death of a child and you see someone has 'liked' this, -everything is weird about that".

As of now, only Facebook has an idea of what the button will be like as it is still in its testing stage. It's still unclear whether it'll be called a "dislike". Till then, keep in touch.

Before you leave, what's your view about this new soon to come update?
