Symbols In Logo Design

New businesses need an identity of their own to set them apart from their competitors, establish their brand’s values in the eyes and minds of their audience, and to garner long lasting connections. One proven way of fast-tracking a visual connection is by using a recognisable symbol as part of your logo.

Something simple, which can make the customer think – and then immediately see and feel – a connection with your brand can do wonders in building awareness and loyalty from the outset.
