My little cousin is a fan of LEGOs so I decided to create a cool LEGO character for him. He also likes stars and shields so I added that too.


Tips for Good Logos:

1. Use intersecting and complementary shapes

A fancy way of saying the logo has two or more pictures wrapped seamlessly into one.

Good Example:
ESPN

Bad Example::

2. Make sure the text is clear and readable

Not like this:

unreadable

3. Use color schemes that are pleasant to the eye

Not this:

4. Use the right colors depending on the emotions you wish to display:

5. Look at your logos from different perspectives (not everyone sees what you see).
