Can you share your work portfolio?
A portfolio is like a resume. It is the fastest way of assessing if the logo designer has worked for businesses in your industry. Some designers will have a portfolio with diverse ideas while some designers will have a similar theme with a unique touch for each business. You might even find a logo similar to what you are looking for.
Where are your testimonials?
What should I tell you about my business?
Just like you have prepared a list of questions for the professional logo designer, he/she will have some questions about your business. You could share your branding agenda with them along with basic information about your business like your target audience, your product, and so on. Their questions will be aimed at gathering know-how about your business values and the products that you represent. This will help the designer in developing an understanding of your business ad your ideas about your logo.
What’s the price tag?
What’s the package?
You will need different files of your logo like the creation files or the master files. You will also need to know about the standards regarding the use of the theme, logo, and colors for branding purposes. This step will highlight additional costs that you will have to incur like printing business cards. You might need some other promotional items like key chains, ball-point pens, customized wrapping paper, stamps, and whatnot. In this step, just ensure that the professional logo designer is on the same page with you in terms of deciding the cost of additional services.
What should be the deadline?
How shall we go about the designing process?
Ask about the design process. How many design options will you get? How many times can you ask for a revision? When will you see the proper colors incorporated into the design? Can you give reviews during the process to push the creativity level of the professional logo designer?
