    Need help with creating a logo

    The first step - always - is to create a mock-up of the logo in solid black. If you cannot convey the purpose of the logo in solid black, it is not a good logo. Forget photoshop for now, and come up with a concept for the logo that works well. Once you do that, the rest is a walk in the park.

    1st Take pencil and paper

    2nd fire up your brains

    3rd if that doesn't work start surfing around the web (especially gaming-sites) and look around (but dont copy that isn't nice)

    and finally close your eyes and take a deep breath
    and start drawing (dont forget to open your eyes)...

    That usually works for me...

    most important is that you draw on a paper (even if you can't draw -I can't- )

    eDreams Design?


    First, I would check to see if you are not violating a copyright. eDreams is a travel company. (no I am not associated with them, just was looking for more information about your company.

    Second, Logo design is sometimes very time consuming. But first think about what your company name means to you by word association. Say them outloud and use a tape recorder or jot them down. If you develop in a team, have the team do this together. Use the ideas, themes, purpose of the company as fodder. Once you have a list of items, see how they relate. Most of the time, almost immediately a theme will appear. This is what I use to base a logo on.

    Third, Transfer that theme into graphic form in black and white. (already posted).

    Once the graphic form is what you want to see or convey, color/render to your heart's content.

    Remember, if you are not happy with what the logo represents. drop it and go onto another idea. Don't try to force a poor idea into a logo you will not like. Take your time.
