MoonSoar Services designed a captivating logo to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Carnegie building. The logo blends tradition and modernity, featuring a stylized illustration of the building surrounded by delicate design elements and a celebratory ribbon. It embodies the building’s rich history and its role as a cultural hub, symbolizing unity and pride. The logo will adorn promotional and celebrational materials, serving as a visual reminder of the Carnegie building’s enduring legacy and the community’s achievement in reaching this milestone.
Logo design is a creative and iterative process that involves understanding the client’s requirements, developing multiple concepts, refining them through revisions, and finally delivering a set of logos that are versatile and visually appealing. With IdeaExchange’s Hespeler branch anniversary, we worked with the client with three major phases:
Discovery Phase: The discovery phase was crucial for understanding the client’s vision, brand identity, and design preferences. It involved a series of discussions, and research to gather essential information. This phase helped establish clear project goals, brand values, and design direction.
Concept Development and Revisions: Based on the information gathered during the discovery phase, we created a set of initial logo concepts. These concepts were diverse in style, typography, and visual elements, but all featured on the building itself. The focus was on capturing the essence of the brand while exploring different design possibilities. This round included 3 initial logo concepts. The client reviewed the initial logo concepts and provided feedback, including specific design elements they liked and disliked, colour preferences, and other changes they would like to see. Based on the feedback, we refined the chosen concept by making revisions, adjusting typography, refining shapes, and exploring alternative colour palettes. The goal was to iteratively narrow down the design direction while addressing the client’s preferences. This feedback loop involved several iterations until the client was satisfied.
Finalization and Deliverables: In this phase, we focused on finalizing the selected logo concept. This involved fine-tuning every aspect of the design, ensuring consistency, balancing proportions, and optimizing legibility. The client reviewed the final design with approval. Upon approval of the final logo design, we prepared the deliverables. In this case, we made the logo adaptable to work on both light and dark backgrounds, along with providing options with text below and around the logo, and a black and white version, all in various formats (e.g., vector files like .ai or .eps, raster files like .png or .jpeg) to accommodate different use cases and platforms.
