Logos have been around in one form or another for several thousand years.
The Ancient Egyptians are known to have branded domestic animals with hieroglyphs to mark their ownership.
The Ancient Romans and Greeks marked their pottery to identify the manufacturer.
The great faiths of the world have all adopted symbols for ease of recognition.
The Art of Visual Identity
From the 12th century onwards through medieval times, heraldic designs (coats of arms) were used to identify the status and property of the nobility.
In general, however, the most common early logos were trademarks signifying the origin or quality of a craftsman's product. Hallmarks, which testify to the quality of precious metals, are a good example of this practice.At the start of the 20th century, with the introduction of color printing, we see the birth of the advertising industry.
A graphic designer is a professional within the graphic design and graphic arts industry who assembles together images, typography or motion graphics to create a piece of design for published, printed or electronic media, such as brochures and advertising. The designer works with a client (customer) to convey a message with words and symbols.
A logo can be used in many different forms, sizes and contexts. For example, the logo for a hotel could be printed on a letterhead or menu, embroidered onto a napkin or jacket, embossed on metal cutlery or illuminated as a huge neon sign on the side of the building.
A logo should be simple so that it retains its clarity of design in different contexts. If it is too complicated, its details may be lost when it is reduced in scale. Also, a simple logo design is faster to read, easier to remember and consequently more instantly identifiable.
