Choosing a Logo Designer

This is my entry to Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 14. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Sheila of Picture My World

I don't know how to design a logo. I don't have a creative mind and hand. But I do know that having a logo is so important when it comes to marketing an idea. Having a logo is more than just a picture. Take for example in the food business. Just one glimpse of the big M signage of McDonald's or the Jollibee logo and the kids will get excited and start shouting altogether McDonalds, McDonalds or Jollibee, Jollibee ... beckoning us to go in and eat.

When visiting a website, the logo or the header design including the overall website layout give the first impression about what the site is all about. If it draws a positive feedback, the visitor may come back. Of course, the content of the site is also a determining factor for revisits.

Where can one get logo designs? I've seen two sites that host logo design contests: 99designs.com and Freelancer.com.  People who want to have their website or business logo designed can host a contest for a fee. By posting their logo requirements in these sites,  they could get more competitive logo design ideas from freelancers instead of just one if they hire only one designer. And after they have chosen the design they want, they pay for or give the prize to the winning entry. (If you're a designer, you may want to check out the sites and join the ongoing contests.)

That is one way of finding someone to design your logo. But if you have an offline business, you need to find a company which provides not only high quality designs of corporate logos but also the craftsmanship to create corporate signs.

The article entitled "Marketing Your Company with Business Signs" mentioned that there are three things that should be kept in mind when creating business signs: the Message; the Placement; and the Consistency.  Therefore, one needs to find a company like Impact Signs that has the reputation backed by 20 years of experience delivering customized products that promote their client's corporate message consistently and can give expert advice as to the proper placement and installation of any business signage.

Do you have any recommendation of a person or company which can provide quality logos and signage in the Philippines? Just in case I need one in the future.

  3. There are many talented providers who spend their time joining online logo design contests, Chin. All you need to do is post a contest. Try Digital Point Forums. I know there are many Filipino designers there.

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.


When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?
CONVENIENCE.

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
