(All of the logos shown on this page are designed by ikan-ikon for clients all over the USA.)

Let Us Start With What A Logo Is Not

A logo in and of itself is not the advertisement it is used on, a logo does not have a phone number when it is being created, although it can be used with a website address or a phone number for some purposes, such as when it's only the logo with the website address and/or phone number as a profile pic on social media pages, etc. The logo design file does not show what it is going to be used on because it is used on everything for branding the company. However, when a logo design project is purchased with a printing or web project, then the client will also get to see proofs of the logo in use, and a logo design client can request to see the logo design on business cards or t-shirts or something else while it is being designed if the client needs that for better visualization of the uses of a logo.

What Exactly Is A Logo?


A logo design is a graphic used for branding the name and nature of a business. The logo is the Ambassador of a business inviting viewers to remember the name of your business and to know what you do with easy recognition in a graphic picture. Human beings have used such symbols throughout time to convey a succinct message and to communicate in symbols that are quickly understood in the brain and often remembered because they were understood and stuck in the mind. In present times, logos tend to be graphical in nature, designed for easy recognition of an organization. At the level of mass communication and in common usage, a company's logo is today often synonymous with its trademark or brand.


The logo (ideogram) is the image embodying an organization into one graphic design creation that is used for branding a business in the minds of anyone who sees it. Logos need to be simple, easy to recognize and easy to remember.


a symbol or other design adopted by an organization to identify its products, uniform, vehicles, etc.

A "logo" is a graphic mark, emblem, or symbol commonly used by commercial enterprises, organizations and even individuals to aid and promote instant public recognition. Logos are either purely graphic (symbols/icons) or are composed of the name of the organization (a logotype or wordmark). 


The term "logotype" is one word, the name of the business, used as the logo, without a graphic attached to it.


The "logo" is the "symbol" and it can be combined with the "logotype" "text" or they can each be used separately.


Your logo is the best performing sales person to market your business every single time it is seen by anyone forever. The logo design project is cruciall important to the success of your business. If you let your teenage nephew make you a logo who doesn't know how to and has no experience in marketing nor the skills to create the future use files and set them up properly for printing and web uses, then you may as well throw hundreds if not thousands of dollars out the window the day you get that logo from him because that is exactly what will happen in the future when you try to use it. Instead, if you want your nephew to design your logo because you love him and he is a creative genius you trust your business' marketing and success to, then at least hire a professional to take his design and create it the right way so that you don't lose a fortune every time you use his logo for your business needs. This will ensure that you do not have to pay EVERY printer and Designer the production fees at nearly $100 an hour every time you go to use that logo for anything!



Buying a professionally made logo can cost as low as $75 one time to get it done right saving you hundreds maybe thousands of dollars for the rest of the life of your business...

Your logo is your Ambassador!

Brand Identity is a critical marketing asset:
"... A brand is therefore one of the most valuable elements in advertising … Careful brand management, supported by a cleverly crafted advertising campaign, can be highly successful … known as creating value, essentially … consumer sees the product as being worth the amount that the advertiser wants him/her to see … A brand which is widely known in the marketplace acquires brand recognition."

Logos that have attained world famous brand recognition:

1) Think about how famous the “golden arches” are...
2) Nike swoosh - one of the most recognized brand logos in the world, created, in 1971 by Carolyn Davidson, while she was a GD student … US$35 … In 1983, Knight gave Davidson a golden diamond Swoosh ring and an undisclosed amount of Nike stock to express his gratitude ... Nike began using the stand-alone Swoosh as its corporate logo without Nike in 1995 … en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swoosh

This means it has achieved ultimate success doing its job exceptionally well. This is what ikanikon specializes in.

The Psychology of Making Money
Consumer buying behavior has shown that people make purchasing decisions based on visual stimuli, which in their minds creates assumptions of:
The perception of the value of your product or service,
Which of their choices SEEMS better than the others,
The wording of your marketing materials, packaging, and product names,
Personal, psychological and social factors,
These are expressed through the development visual impact based on the principles of graphic design and marketing. Holding a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication with a minor in Marketing, ikanikon has extensive knowledge that is incorporated into each and every creation to SELL your products and services, combined with new research specific to your company's needs, to not just make something that people could call a logo, business card or a website, but that CONVINCINGLY CREATES CASH in your pockets.




Color is a key element in logo design and plays an important role in brand differentiation. The importance of color in this context is due to the mechanics of human visual perception wherein color and contrast play critical roles in visual detail detection. In addition, we tend to acquire various color connotations and color associations through social and cultural conditioning, and these play a role in how we decipher and evaluate logo color. While color is considered important to brand recognition and logo design, it shouldn't conflict with logo functionality, and it needs to be remembered that color connotations and associations are not consistent across all social and cultural groups. For example, in the United States, red, white, and blue are often used in logos for companies that want to project patriotic feelings but other countries will have different sets of colors that evoke national pride. Similarly, diverse industry sectors tend to favor different color palettes: strong, saturated colors are favored in the fast food industry and less saturated, more sombre colors in the banking and insurance sectors. Choosing an organization's logo's color is an important decision because of its long term implications and its role in creating differentiation among competitors' logos.
