Here are the things to consider in logo designing and it surely brings you to a perfect logo design.
1. Knowing What Kind of Business the Logo Made for.
Talk with the costumerYou should ask the costumer if what kind of business you are going to make a logo. It is very important that the information of the business is describe and shown in the logo itself. But there are some business that you don’t need to show what they did because its obvious.
Like for example:
Restaurant logos don’t need to show food.
Dentist logos don’t need to show totally teeth.
Furniture store logos don’t need to show furniture at all.
Just because it’s relevant, doesn’t mean you can’t do better.
The Mercedes logo isn’t a car. The Virgin Atlantic logo isn’t an airplane. The Apple
logo isn’t a computer. Etc. Etc.
2. Costumer’s Suggestion.
Let them suggest for a concept.Ask the owner for a suggestion for the concept and the color of the logo but if the owner is out of idea make your own and ask the owner for an opinion.
3. Define Graphics according to the concept.Make it Simple. Remember that simplicity is more effective. The design should be simple but make sure that it is meaningful.
My Imaginary Friend Graphics is a full service graphic design firm in Central West Virginia.
This is an example of a nice concept, I really like it, the image show the name itself.
4. Make it Unique.The concepts should be unique and in your own, it should not be similar with the competitor’s logo.
FedEx Corporation, originally known as FDX Corporation, is a logistics services company, based in the United States with headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee.
FedEx Logo is very unique because of its hidden arrow between E & X. Apparently it’s a hidden sign symbolizing speed and precision of this courier office. It gave me some hard times finding it, even though the image is so simple. That makes the logo very unique.
5. Make it Recognizable & Memorable.It should be recognized by anyone. It’s the nice thing that everyone can easily recognize the logo.

The company’s attractive logo instantly reminds consumers that there is a crisp, refreshing, sweet beverage awaiting them in each and every sip.
6. Costumer’s Choice.
Let the owner choose with your proposed logo designs.
After making the designs you should have 2-3 or more proposed designs for the costumer to choose for the best, and you should accept corrections and opinions for a better design.
7. Finishing Touch.
