I'm looking for some ideas and qualities that a Professional Logo should have. I'm not designing one for any big company or something, just a personal thing that I want to look as good as possible. What do you think a great logo should have, and if possible post some examples. I'm thinking something with both text and a picture/design. I don't want anything too detailed, it should look good both small (business-card size) and large (t-shirt size).

Thanks for the help, I don't need specific ideas, just general suggestions.

I dont think there really is a certain 'approach' you coudl really have in desiging one.

I think as long as it looks clean, neat, and eye catching is what makes a "good professional" logo.

i good logo should be able to be resized easily. you dont want a logo that gets distorted and ruined when you shrink it down to the size of a stamp. they say that it should be able to be reproduced in black and white. i dont know about that since ive seen a lot of logos that wont come out right in black and white. but if you never plan to print it in black and white, then i wouldnt worry about that. i have a 2 year diploma from a community college in graphic design. Posted Image if you post it here, i could tell you what i think about it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I don't know if I'll be printing it or anything, it will probably only be used on a website. I'm still playing around with ideas, so I'll post one here once I get a general idea of what I'll be doing.

Prodigy definition gives you a lot to work with:
1. Something extraordinary, or out of the usual course of
nature, from which omens are drawn; a portent; as,
eclipses and meteors were anciently deemed prodigies.
[1913 Webster]

So many terrors, voices, prodigies,
May warn thee, as a sure foregoing sign. --Milton.
[1913 Webster]

2. Anything so extraordinary as to excite wonder or
astonishment; a marvel; as, a prodigy of learning.
[1913 Webster]

3. A production out of ordinary course of nature; an abnormal
development; a monster. --B. Jonson.
[1913 Webster]

Syn: Wonder; miracle; portent; marvel; monster.
[1913 Webster]


"WordNet ® 2.0"

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded and the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics...you are all stardust.”Lawrence M. Krauss
