Many things in life come prepackaged and ready to use, from little things like potato chips to creative things like PSD templates to big things like pre-fab houses. It’s nice to have things we can use in a hurry, but sometimes it’s hard to make premade things feel like they’re your own.
Take logo designs, for instance. There are thousands of logo design templates, so you have a ton of options to choose from. But how do you know you picked the right one? More important, can it truly become your own, or are you just copying someone else’s branding?
You can answer those questions by checking that your template has these 7 ingredients for a successful logo. If you can see all these traits in your design, then you’re good to go. If not, it’s time to pick another template or think about how you can modify the one you’ve got.
