What Should a Logo Cost

New to business? Wondering how much it costs to create a professional logo? In short, you can spend as little as $0 on a logo, or $1 million if you’re Pepsi. But let’s assume you’re not a giant corporation. Let’s assume you’re new to business and you’re not quite sure what professional services cost. Whether you’re paying for marketing, a business coach, or professional design services, you always get what you pay for. “GOOD WORK ISN’T CHEAP AND CHEAP WORK ISN’T GOOD”.

So what does that mean exactly?

“Not all designers are created equal”. Example: If you hire an entry level designer, or even purchase an inexpensive pre-made design online, chances are that logo is not only going to hinder your business, it’s image and it’s reputation, but it could potentially cost you thousands of dollars in monthly revenue. Many times what you would have spent if you just would have got it done right the first time.

Do it right the first time.

With any internal project in a company, time is money. Example: If you hire an under qualified designer, there’s a good chance you’re going to pay to rebrand your logo because it poorly represents your business. That means you’re spending more time and more money looking for a new designer. But it’s not just the logo you have to pay for again, it’s everything you put the logo on (business cards, marketing material, website, vehicle wraps, etc.). That can be very costly. So in short, do it right the first time and save yourself both time and money, that way you can focus on growing your business and achieving your goals.

So what should a logo cost?

Ideally, you should be spending between $1000-$2500 on a professional logo. However, the price can vary tremendously, depending  upon the experience of the designer(s), the size of their studio (staff), and the quality of the work. And you pay more, you get more. That includes customer service, communication, attention to detail, and let’s not forget, quality work. When you spend good money on a good logo, you expect to be taken care of. And at Hi-five Design, that’s what you get (period).

What can I expect when I hire Hi-five Design?

Integrity is first and foremost. At my core I’m an artist. That’s my passion in life, and that’s what I care about most, outside of my family of course. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and I think my portfolio demonstrates that. When I create a logo for any client, I imagine that their business is my own. I ask myself a simple question, “what steps do I need to take to get this business off to a good start”? At the end of the day, I care about helping you accomplish your dreams and your goals. I’m also an independent designer. That mean’s you’re dealing directly with me the artist, and I make sure you’re taken care of.

Have a question about my design services or the cost involved? Shoot me an email or give me a call.

Colorado Apparel Company Logo Design

Here is a Colorado apparel company logo design. Rocky Roots is a startup and looking to add their twist on Colorado tee’s. My approach was to incorporate a boulder as the background alongside a rocky looking font. I did try incorporating the roots but it just looked odd. I added a texture to the boulder to give it a distressed look. The logo can be used in a vertical or horizontal layout depending on the application. For colors I chose a desaturated dark purple and light grey. Overall it makes for a simple, bold, and cool concept. Apparel logo design by Hi-five design.

Boombox Logo Design for Coffee/Beer Brew Bar in Denver

Here is a boombox logo design for a coffee/beer brew bar in Denver, CO. Boombox Brew Bar is a new restaurant that will be specializing in quality coffee and craft beer. They asked me to design a logo for them. Originally we had discussed actually incorporating a boombox into the design, while also keeping the design classy and elegant. After doing some research and spending some time sketching out ideas, I concluded that by incorporating the boombox into the design it made for anything but a classy design. So I simplified the design and put the focus primarily on the speakers themselves. I went with a gold gradient for the main color and a dark navy for the background. The font is custom made as I built it from scratch. Overall this made for a cool, clean and elegant design that’s versatile on different applications. I have a ton of ideas to build on the companies brand identity that includes cool patterns, wall graphics and so much more. So much potential for this little logo. Looking forward to helping this company get off on the right foot.
