Photography logo design tips
Define your branding
As a photographer and artist, you should choose a logo design that shows off the style of photos you take, whether they are wedding, nature or lifestyle shots. This will help you define your brand and portray the vision and personality of your studio.
Choose the right font
Your logo’s font helps define the feel of your photography brand. The font on your logo design aids in expressing who you are as a creative. It’s an essential aspect of your design so focus on choosing a font that reflects you as a photographer and helps tell your story. A wedding photographer may use an elegant script to represent the high-end weddings they shoot.
Use color strategically
Like typography, colors also communicate the personality of your photography brand. It’s a good idea to research logo psychology when choosing your logo colors. Choose colors that give people a sense of your niche whether it’s still life, portrait or fashion photography. Photographers tend to lean towards minimalist designs even when it comes to color. It’s recommended that photographers create a black and white version of their logo so that it can be inserted into a wide range of images.
Make a graphic statement
Icons, illustrations and graphics play a huge role in defining your brand through your logo. Make it edgy and engaging in a way that rightfully displays your photography style. A photographer specializing in nature could incorporate an icon with trees or branches to create an outdoorsy look. Whereas a wedding photographer may integrate elegant romantic symbolism such as a heart or ring into their logo design.
