How long does a logo design take?
Designing a logo is a creative and collaborative process and involves a lot of preliminary discovery work. Generally, I like to forecast two to four weeks to design a logo. This begins with some preliminary research on your company and industry followed by time for ideation. I provide two to three logo concepts to choose from, after which we work on digitizing the logo, refining the details and choosing the right colours. The process involves your critical feedback to ensure we create a design that aligns with your business and will resonate with your ideal clients.
