Want to create a logo that makes a lasting impact? Here are some of the top logo templates and mockups to take your branding to the next level.
Logos are the visual representation of your brand. They should convey professionalism, create interest, and give a taste of what your brand is all about. They’re tricky – but important – to get right. With the help of design templates, you don’t have to spend big for big impact and a professional finish. Read on to see how free logo templates can elevate your brand’s most important design feature.
It may seem rudimentary to define what a logo is, but it’s worth stating what we’re talking about. So, let’s start with the basics. Logos are a graphic symbol that represents your brand. They could be an abstract design (for example, Nike’s swoosh or Starbucks’ siren); a figurative design (think Apple and Target); your company’s name or an abbreviation of it (look to Google or the Facebook ‘F’); or a mix of any of these approaches (seen in MasterCard or Adidas’ dual name and icon logos).
Ultimately, logos exist to create a great first impression and be memorable to your customer. The key is being simple and flexible, but unique enough to be instantly recognizable and unmistakably aligned with your brand. To see what we mean, look to this round up of logo templates designed specifically for restaurants. It’s a lesson in making a logo both professional and, appropriately, appetizing.
There are a few golden rules on the technical side of things that it’s important to keep in mind when designing your logo. Your logo design should work in all kinds of situations, from icons on social media to printed billboards. Simple and clean is the way to go.
