With Father's Day coming up on June 16, I thought I would help out all the would-be gift givers who have technology craving fathers in their lives. My plan was to scour the internet looking for great gift ideas for geeky fathers like myself. As it turns out, I just had to scour ThinkGeek. Nonetheless, I still narrowed down and categorized some of what I consider the cream of the crop. Whether his obsession is Star Wars or Coffee or even Cooking, there is always something techy for dear, old, socially awkward dad.
One of my favorite opportunities as a designer is logo creation. I absolutely love the process of expressing a client's identity into a single, versatile graphic.
However, it comes with many challenges. One of the greatest challenges is deciding on whether to create a simple or complex logo. Some clients like the idea of a simple, versatile logo that could easily be printed onto t-shirts, business cards, or notepads. There are also clients who like the idea of a complex logo, that illustrates all that their business has to offer.
When looking deeper into this question, some of these tendencies may be influenced by brand confidence. The idea of a having a simple logo to reflect your complex company can seem like you are not properly conveying your company and causing your brand identity to be unrecognizable. Conversely, the desire for a larger, complex logo often stems from the wish to encompass everything your business has to offer and to be noticed by potential clients in the process. However, it all begs the question: Is bigger better?
