Get Help Creating Your Visual Identity
If you're just starting out, you may need some help designing your new logo, or choosing your company colours, or picking a good company font. It's all about getting a distinct look for your new business, and it doesn't have to be complicated.
What's your "look"?
You'll need a visual identity for your small business as soon as you launch it. When people see your company name for the first time, what will it look like? Will it have a specially-designed logo? Or will it simply show the business name? Will it be in a distinct font? And a distinct colour?
If you're launching on a shoestring "starter" budget, you can keep it simple. But your company's visual identity does deserve some attention, because that look will stay in your customers' minds. They'll recognize it, and expect to see it everywhere that your company name is mentioned.
The main pieces to start with
If you have the budget for it, start by getting a logo designed. That will be the centerpiece of your business' new visual identity. If a custom logo design is outside your startup budget, then if nothing else, pick a font for your company name. Spend some time looking at alternatives, and pick it intentionally. You can go a long way towards having a distinct look by picking the right font.
And finally, pick a colour, or two colours that go really well together, for your name/logo. With those basic items, you're well on your way. You can now use this visual identity on your website, in your literature, on your ads, and on your business cards and stationery.
