Creating a logo for a company takes skill and knowledge of design concepts, typography, color theory, and the ability to condense a company’s mission and values into a single symbol.
We at Minnesota Design Studio are well-equipped to handle your logo design assignment. Working closely with our clients allows us to learn about their individual objectives and the specifics of their projects.
At the outset of each project, we investigate the company, audience, and rivals of our customer. Incorporating this data throughout the design process helps guarantee that the final logo is unique, distinctive, and successful in conveying the client’s message.
When we have the client’s approval on the mockups, we will go on with the final designs. After receiving feedback from the customer, the design is fine-tuned and revised until it meets their expectations.
In addition, we will include several file formats, color variants, and guidelines for using the logo consistently throughout print, digital, and in-person marketing materials.
We keep our customers in the loop at all times, giving them progress reports and asking for their input to make sure the final logo is all they hoped it would be.
At Minnesota Design Studio, we’re dedicated to meeting the unique requirements of each of our clients via innovative logo design. We’re here to take care of the nitty-gritty details of logo design so you can focus on developing your brand and growing your business.
What does a logo cost?
Creating a custom logo design can be a valuable investment for a business, and the cost can vary depending on the complexity and specific requirements of the logo. In general, the cost for a new custom logo design would be around $250. This cost includes multiple rounds of revisions and back-and-forth with the client, to ensure that the final design is exactly what the client is looking for.
Once the project starts, we will work closely with you to understand the vision and goals for your logo, as well as any specific style or design preferences you may have. We’ll present a variety of concepts and designs for you to review and provide feedback on. As we move through the revisions and adjustments, we will continue to iterate on the design until it meets your satisfaction, before finalizing the logo. We value our client’s satisfaction and this means that we will always be willing to make any change necessary to achieve it.

A well-designed logo is not only memorable, but it also helps to communicate the values and identity of a business to its audience.

Why do I need a professional designed logo?
Using clipart to create a logo can be a mistake because it can make the logo look generic and identical to other logos in the market, including those of competitors. This can make it difficult for customers to identify the company and can even lead to confusion or mix-ups with other businesses.

Who keeps the rights of the created logo design?
When Minnesota Design Studio creates a logo for a customer, the customer becomes the legal owner of that logo and holds all the rights to it. This means that the customer has the exclusive right to use the logo for commercial purposes, such as on their website, business cards, products, and advertising materials. They can also license or sell the rights to the logo to others, if they choose to do so.
How do I ensure it is suitable for printing?
The best way to ensure consistency is to receive a logo design in both CMYK and spot/Pantone color versions. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, which are the standard colors used in printing. This format breaks down the design into four colors, which allows for the design to be reproduced accurately across different print materials.
Pantone, on the other hand, is a standardized color matching system that is often used in the printing industry. In Pantone, the design is broken down into three colors or less. This can provide a greater level of consistency in color reproduction, as the colors used in the design will be matched to specific Pantone colors, which can be reproduced accurately across different media types.
Using both CMYK and Pantone version of the design allows customers to print on both digital and offset printing presses, and a variety of other media types such as on fabrics, metal, ceramics etc.
It’s worth to mention that for most digital channels, such as website, social media, and digital marketing, customers may need to have a RGB (Red, Green, Blue) version of their logo, which is different than CMYK and Pantone, so they can be displayed correctly on those channels.
Overall, receiving both a CMYK and spot/Pantone version of a logo design is an important step in ensuring that the design can be reproduced consistently across different media types. This will help ensure that the design looks professional and recognizable, regardless of where it is being used.
What kind of logo files do I receive?
We usually provide the following types of final files for the logo designs created: AI (vector), PSD, EPS, SVG, GIF, JPG, TIF, PNG. If you need any other formats, just let us know.
An AI (Adobe Illustrator) file is a vector graphics file format that is used in Adobe Illustrator, a popular vector graphics-based drawing program. Vector graphics are made up of a series of mathematical equations that define the shapes and lines in an image, which allows them to be resized without losing quality. AI files are a strictly limited, highly simplified subset of EPS.
PSD files are proprietary file format used by Adobe Photoshop, a popular image editing software. PSD stands for Photoshop Document and it is the preferred working format for editing images in the software, as only the proprietary formats retain all the editing power of the programs, such as using layers to build complex images.
EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) is a standard file format for importing and exporting PostScript files. It is usually a single page PostScript program that describes an illustration or entire page. EPS file are widely accepted by most types of software and printers, so it can be useful for getting the logo out to different types of media.
GIF, JPG, TIF, PNG are all raster image file formats. They work by dividing an image into a grid of pixels, with each pixel representing a specific color. GIF is limited to 256 colors and is good for small images with limited colors. JPG is optimized for photographs and similar continuous tone images that contain many, many colors. TIFF is a lossless format and PNG is also lossless but it uses compression that looks for patterns in the image to reduce file size.
In general, providing different file formats allows the customer to have more flexibility and options in using their logo across various channels, such as digital and print, with each file format have its own advantages and disadvantages. It is always a good practice for the design studio to ask their customer about the file format they need for the different media they are going to use the logo on.
