A strong relationship is built on the factors of understanding and trust.

The relationship between a brand and its customers revolves around the same criterion.

It is when the customers are fully aware of the specifics of a brand, that they will be able to build a relationship with it.

Hence, the logo of a brand should be simple enough to allow the customers to correctly comprehend it. Also, the logo should be decipherable; this idea entails the fact that a brand’s logo should be recognizable enough for the customers to link it with the brand. With these two factors in place, a brand can easily build a connection with its audience.

Readable and Versatile

In order to stay purposeful, it is important for a brand’s logo to remain readable in all sizes. Logos may be placed on t-shirts, billboards, social media, on the walls etc. for the sake of promotion. For them to look perfect, the size of the logos is often tweaked in accordance with the surface they are to be used on. Many times, these logos get distorted when their size is changed to fit the surface. This is something that impacts the logo’s quality and value at large.

This could prove to be a risky task as well, as the idea may backfire, however; it is always worth giving things a try.

Eternal

Eternal logos are purposeful in nature. Though evolution sure has an impact on everything, however; purposeful logos observe the least changes. Nike, Coca-Cola, and KFC are all brands with logos that are so good that minimal changes were made to their designs. Also, the alterations made were only for the sake of aligning them with the present time.

Timeless logos help build a very strong link with their customers. Their core features and elements become their strength with time and hence, remain unchanged till need be. Because of the logo being the same since forever, customers spontaneously build a connection with the brand while making it a hit in the market.

Is Improving the Logo Design Enough to Make A Brand Purposeful?

A logo is the first thing a customer observes in a brand.  Hence, in order reflect purpose, the brand’s design needs to be well-created and sustained.  However; this does not imply that design is the only factor improving which can make a brand purposeful. There are several other things as well that are vital to be considered. Hiring a cheap logo designer, not promoting the brand enough, or delivering what you can deliver best while neglecting the needs of the customer are things that can derail the brand from its path towards success.

Being purposeful is a huge achievement that cannot come to a brand with just one element in place. It is the synchronization of all the basic factors, including logo design, which can help a brand become purposeful in the most appropriate manner.
