Launch your new logo before the New Year
The logo. You need a name to distinguish you from the pack.
I love the 2 syllable rule, think Google, Apple, Samsung, Netflix. Once the name is selected, and of course, once you also know what problem you’ll be solving with your business, its an exciting them. The logo.

This fun stage can bring some stress. Not knowing who to hire, where to start or how to design the logo.
So here are a few steps and resources to help you on your journey.
