Choosing a logo can be very tricky. It is no easy task as your logo is going to be the symbol that represents you, your company and your vision. A logo is also the symbol that your customers will come to know, respect and trust.

Here are 5 simple logo tips that will help to make your new or even your current logo that much better. These are simple logo styles and effects that you can add to logos to make them more original, eye-catching and memorable.

These types of logos are great for print, design, photography and multi-media companies. Rainbow colored logos are also excellent for events and organizations.
