If you own or run a boutique, you know you are in the industry of style. This makes your company logo all the more crucial than it already is for other types of companies. A good logo showcases in little to no words a graphic representation of more than your line of work: it also sets the tone of your reputation, your standards and values, your creative ideals. Boutiques will have to be extra creative in the designing of their own logo in order to stand out among an already competitively creative and fashionable crowd.
As always, Template.net is here to help. This portfolio of free PSD Logo and vector templates offers you some of the best boutique logo ideas around.
First of all, know the fundamental principles of what makes a great company logo.
Be as simple as you can manage.
Yes, your specialty is being fashionable, but this does not mean coming up with a logo overloaded with swirls and studs. Your particular establishment might lean toward a classic baroque look, but it still stands that simplicity is sophistication, and this is true in any creative industry. Make every line, every symbol, every word count.
Common sense. You stand out with a distinct and unique shape, instantly recognizable, preferably one that in some symbolic or creative way ties with your boutique’s niche.
Use color carefully.
Colorful Logos are great for exhibiting creativity, but in the fashion and deco industry, the fail-safe, classic trend is to go with less color. This ties in with the simplicity-sophistication principle.
Remember, your logo is often going to be the first thing your customers are going to see, and they will judge the full range of your offers and merchandise based on that first impression.
Make sure you give a great one.
