Natural World Logo

One of the most important elements of a successful business is the logo that owners choose to represent it. A logo is far simpler than remembering facts or a description of why your brand stands out from the rest; it’s a meme and an idea that just sticks in the minds of your customers, helping them associate certain, positive feelings with your business. In the marketplace, brand awareness rules. Without customers being able to instantly recognise and connect with your brand, your products and services won’t sell well. When folks are aware of your brand and what it sells, half the battle is won right there! Your brand stays in their minds even when you’re not actively advertising to raise awareness for it. Having a logo that is the identity and symbol of your operation is a trust-building element. A trust-building element is a factor that puts your customers at ease with your business and makes them feel comfortable dealing with you.

Customers associate all sorts of emotions and feelings with a logo, based on the design. For instance, a logo that features timeless shapes like stars or strong, bold strokes and lines will end up inspiring dependability and strength in your brand. Just like the logo we made for our new client – Natural World Products Pte Ltd. They provide organic products for machinery, equipments, agriculture & fashion products. The symbol of your company, a logo epitomises your brand and is the most high-profile, visible representation of your business to its target market. It’s necessary, therefore, for a lot of thought to be invested in the design of a logo. There’s no doubt that investing time in logo design can help grow your business.

Book Cover

A book cover is an invitation — a way of creating interest in the reader. It beckons, inviting them to enter the world of your book and dance with your characters for awhile. It makes a promise about what kind of music they’ll be dancing to. An impressive design for the cover of your book remains one of the most important steps in publishing. It is a crucial marketing tool and there is a science to getting it right. The book cover is also the start of the branding of the book. The main principles of design is the product must be bold and eye-catching and conspicuously different from everyone else’s and this applies to books too. Bookshops display books with their covers facing the reader. It’s the first thing a reader sees. Even the author can be recognised not only by the letters spelled out, but by the font, the style of cover, composition, the look of a series. Our designers typically pay careful attention to every little detail, making sure that each book cover created is both representative of the contents of the book and attention grabbing when readers are skimming the bookstore shelves.

So in conclusion, do people judge by book cover? Sadly, they do and still do!
