LOGO DESIGN CORK

I have worked with lots of start up businesses in Cork and throughout Munster to help them to create their logo designs.

My love of creating logo design ideas was one of the main reasons that I first became a graphic designer.

Working with start-ups is exciting as creating a logo is the beginning of the brand’s visual corporate identity. As a logo designer, I get to be involved with creating the very essence of the new business sowing the seed for what’s to come.

How much does a logo design cost in Cork, Ireland?

Logo Design from €500 from concept to handover.

I have always believed that creativity can level the playing field when going up against bigger companies with bigger budgets, and I believe in affordable design for start up companies. With a logo design that is clever or makes a big impact, your brand can become memorable. Seeing that logo design develop into a brand is always a proud moment for a graphic designer.

The logo design process:

I am using a case study of a logo I designed for ‘All about your home’ as an example of how the process works. Check out the All about your home website for great home interiors products.

1. Design Brief

My process involves listening first. I offer a free consultation where we go through your business and what it represents to you and to your target audience. We can talk on the phone, or on zoom (as is the new normal). You can come to my Cork office on the South Mall, and have a chat and a Nespresso on me. (It has just been renovated so it’s a fantastic place to visit), or I can meet you in Cork city for some lunch. I eat lunch at least once a day!

When we chat, I will take out my notebook. You may not understand my writing, but it means something to me, and helps me to create a design brief of what you want, and sometimes what you don’t want.

2. Concept creation, eureka moments and mind mapping

I think carefully about what we have discussed for your brand values. Sometimes this is done in the jacuzzi in the local leisure centre, sometimes it’s the night after we speak as I am in that half awake, half asleep mode, and sometimes it’s in my office at my desk but I always think about the concept of the logo, and my second favourite part of the design process is when I really feel like I have ‘nailed it’ and I get to work mind mapping possible solutions and visual interpretations on paper.

3. Creating the logo design

Only once my thinking has been done to the eureka moments (and more often than not there’s a few of these), do I start creating the design. At this point I look at visual research and trends to help me to inform my creation. I test colour combinations and font combinations that I fell will best reflect your brand, and then I set out my logo design proposals.

4. Presenting the logo design

I will always present you with a number of concepts. More often than not there are different versions that I think of in the process and my attitude is “Why keep them to myself? when I can share them with you?”

5. Refining the design

The last step of the process is where we work together to choose and refine one of the proposed logos. Once we are happy with it, I send all of the files to you that you will need from the jpeg version for your Facebook profile to the master .eps version for future design projects as well as telling you the colour palette and the typeface that you will need to use to keep your brand consistent.

My absolute favourite part of the process is sending the shiny new logo design out into the world. It’s almost like dropping my children off at school for the first day knowing that it’s the start of a very exciting journey.

We may be working on a full branding project together or I may be producing some brand guidelines or stationery for you, and this is the point when we start to work on these items.
