Branding and Logo Design

Activate has over a decade of professional experience designing
brands for successful businesses from all industry sectors.

Branding is highly critical for success in today's busy market place. Your logo will be at the forefront as to whether your business is noticed, whether it is considered and whether it is remembered.

Your brand says a lot more than just your business name. It should capture the essence of what your business is about and what sort of business you are. Branding is a lot more complicated than what some people think as it is not easy to convey the values, industry, personality and professionalism of your business in a simple and attractive logo.

You should be proud of your company brand and feel good about it every time you see it. When people see a quality logo they instinctively know that your business takes itself seriously and is both professional and successful.

Just like yourself, you dress appropriately for your workplace and so should your business.

We do not outsource your design project. You deal directly with our logo designer.

We are registered with Trademark Vision and we analyse our designs against registered trademarks to ensure they are unique.

We just love logos and treat each logo project like our own.

Why choose Activate for your logo design?

1. We have been designing brands professionally for 15 years. Over this time we have created hundreds of logos for businesses and organisations across all industries. 

2. We design our logos in-house. That may sound logical but you would be surprised how many other companies simply farm out your job to design-crowds overseas. This is significant as the design will not be tailored for your specific requirements. Do you really want to try and launch into the market with a generic logo, designed by a inexperienced student in a random country? Someone whom you have never spoken to and knows nothing about your business or your market?

3. You can liaise directly with our logo designer and creative director, Jon Tarr who will be the one doing the job. No middleman to pay for, no mis-communication. Fast, efficient and effective logo design. Jon loves logos and has been designing for companies across all sectors for 14 years. His articles on branding have even been published by global tech publication; Smashing Magazine.

4. Activate is registered with Trademark Vision; a global trademark search company. Part of our design process is the submission and analysis of our design against registered trade marks in your industry. We are not aware of any other design agency that does this. 

5. We don't just grab a generic logo template and put your name on it and tweak the colours. We start with a pencil and paper and sketch our logo designs by hand before finishing on a computer. 

6. We take branding very seriously, we live and breath logo design everyday and have been doing so for 14 years. This experience is worth paying for. A professional brand is not an expense, it is an investment in the success of your business.

7. We are as experienced in print as we are in website development. This means that we know how brands should be created to work as well in print media as it should on-screen, an important distinction to make as the two are radically different. This means we know what Pantone inks need to be used for print and signage that will match your online colour scheme.

8. We create all our logo files using vector graphics. These are mathematical drawings rather than pixels like a photograph. This means it is infinitely scalable to any size and will work on any medium; print, web, signage, clothing / embroidery etc.

9. After we have designed your logo, we can then apply this across to branded print materials, website development and social media and application design and development. This provides a level of brand consistency and efficiency not often found by companies as affordable as ours. 

10. We put a great deal of thought and consideration into our logo designs and can explain exactly why each detail is the way that it is. We will only show you a logo design if we love it ourselves and believe that it is the right thing for your business. 

Logo design and branding is a communication task. A logo isn't just a nice way to display your business name, it needs to communicate something about your business to your target audience. It needs to do this in a simple, unique and memorable way. 

Activate Design has many years of experience creating logo designs for successful businesses across all industry sectors. Many of our design clients have become multi-award winning businesses in their field.
