Brand logo design in 5 steps

1. Lets get started with… R&D

I have recently been involved in a branding exercise for a company that has over over 20 years experience in consultancy, project management and business analysis. This isn’t a new sphere of business, there is plenty of competition out there so a stand out logo marque that was…

  • Flexible
  • Unique
  • Impactful

… was essential. So I presented a limited selection of ideas as I feel, after a certain amount of years, I’m qualified not to waste the client’s time presenting numerous options. This is a concept shared by the likes of David Airey on his site logodesignlove.com

10 Considerations For Mobile DesignWhen designing for the desktop you can consider the end-user environment, when designing for print you can picture where the magazine will be read but when design for mobile the end-user scenarios are so varied and so far ranging that todays savvy mobile designer needs to develop an entirely different skill set.

Mobile Meet Up - Glassblowers in London's SohoThis is the edited version of a presentation I gave at Mobile Meet Up on Tues 27th Sept about ‘10 key considerations when designing for mobile.  I must stress this doesn’t mean there are only 10, in fact it’s the opposite, there are many more considerations. But here are my top 10:

1. Real Estate


10 key considerations when designing for mobile

Whether you coming from a desktop background or from advertising the canvas size you have to pay with is drastically reduced on the mobile environment.

Over the years the relative screen size difference has increased. The difference between the smallest (128 x 128) and the largest (800 x 480) is now a factor of 23. That means the largest screen is 23 times bigger than the smallest one.

2. Design with distraction front-of-mind

Hybrid Betting App for Android

Brief: Refresh an Existing Android Hybrid Betting App for Unibet

Presented as a prime example of evolution through to revolution, this time critical design refresh delivered a vastly improved user experience. User are able to bet on:

  • Live events
  • Navigate and explore betting odds using the phones functionality
  • Locate events nearby to place bets on.

Discovery Phase

Following an extension review of the current offer, a synopsis of the competition and a round-table review session of the proposed mobile web visual language, I proposed three conceptual directions:

  • Concept One – Expandable menue (Progressive Disclose) Evolution
  • Concept Two – Carousel (Android tab slider)
  • Concept Three – Icons and Grids (3×3) Revolution

Revolution not evolution

Following several rounds, and really diving-deep during the Discovery Phase the decision was made to go for Revolution not Evolution. Yippee!

Splash Page

Acting as a form of brand reinforcement splash screens both allow the App 4-5 seconds loading time. Although this is not technically necessary as Android can do immediate start, it does provide an opportunity to build loyalty amongst the customer base.

After only a few years the mobile landscape has generated a selection of trends and UX that have now become best practice in mobile design and an essential skill-set for the experienced UI designer.

Design Trends for mobile

Essential Content

Mobile user have an absolutely different mind set to desktop.

So, concentrate on location, focus on why would the user needs that information and therefore deliver it in the format best suited to the situation, like a phone number.
