Sometimes your wordpress site design needs more than just a theme.
This post is sort of a follow-up to our last post on logo design. the folks over at nomBat pointed out to us that Logo design is not just about designing a logo. Logo design is about understanding where a logo is going to be used, who the target audience for the logo and the product will be, as well as understanding what the intended outcome of the interaction is.
For instance, when an affiliate marketer turns to wordpress to develop a wordpress site that will be home to both their content and their affiliate links and ads, the page isn't just about the wordpress site, it is the whole content package.
Sometimes a company needs a logo because their clients want to show their pride in the company, or even display one of their underlying beliefs through the brand it's self. But sometimes, like in the case of affiliate site design, your ultimate goal is to get a user to leave your wordpress site through an add affiliate link. A well designed logo, that matches the wordpress site in color, font, mood positioning can accomplish the feat of giving your site enough credibility to keep them around just long enough to click those links, which as nomBat put it, can mean a significant amount of money in your pocket.

What is the best site to use for a logo design?
If you need to get a logo for your pet sitting services, independent gas station, or accounting services, where do you turn? There are dozens of different logo service sites and it is more than a little confusing. If you need to submit a couple of ideas and have something designed for you, who can you trust. When you turn to a bidding or contest site is there enough incentive for the participants to even submit original work?
These questions are very common within the graphic design world, and they are something that us, as designers wrestle with every day. Probably the best answer to all of your logo questions is to hire a professional, like those at nomBat's Logo Shop. Logo shops like nomBat's can professionally look at your project and give real, well thought out, logical answers to what type of logo, or logo services you actually need. nomBat Graphic Design and Brand Development is one of the few design shops that really understands there are just as many different reasons for having a logo as there are people that need good logos!
