You've finally convinced yourself to start that small business you've been dreaming about. You wrote your business plan, formed your LLC, opened your bank account.. and now you're thinking... "how will people know about my business?" The novice designer inside of you starts to imagine the colors, typography, and logo that will represent your business. Then you get the urge to add what you do to the logo somehow. Examples: You have a painting company so you name your business Rhino Painting, instead of just Rhino. You're in construction so you name your business HomePro Construction, instead of just HomePro. Do you get my point? You're making the attempt to explain what you do with your logo, instead of just allowing it to identify you - and this is wrong.
When designing an identity, your goal is to identify, not explain. Just consider something for me - if you think about the world's most notorious brands, what do their logos have in common?
When designing an identity, your goal is to identify, not explain.
The commonality is that none of these companies explain what they do, but yet you have a perception of who they are just by looking at their logo; their logos are only intended to help you identify them.
The ability for someone to recognize your logo doesn't rest solely the on logo itself. Once an identify is created for your business, it's up to an individual or group of individuals to begin building the business's reputation through strategic messaging, a popular word for this process is called branding.
