The web is a visual medium. The development of your website logo will be the most important effort on your part as you begin your branding experience. A well designed logo introduces you, tells your story, and defines you visually. It is your first impression, and identifies you across all mediums and platforms. Your printed material such as business cards, brochures and all printed items will be taken more seriously if your logo is well designed, with a great color palette, chosen carefully based upon your product or service advertised.
A professional graphic artist:

Understanding color power:
The color “red” is vibrant, passionate, strong and attention-grabbing. This is a favorite color used for many restaurants and food chains as it tends to charge emotions and encourage patrons to order mouth-watering food items. The color “violet” is regal, sacred, sensual and luxurious, perfect for every website from fine furniture sales to magazines.
Many professional companies choose the color “blue” for branding, as it is a cool color, dependable and sophisticated. Shades of blue are full of depth, constant and yet dynamic. The color “green” is fresh, relaxing, balanced and calm. A natural color of earth, great for any company logo. The color “yellow” is usually used on sites looking for a happy color, such as a children’s website.
