There’s nothing quite like a genuinely good logo design. Take FedEx for example – the bold font, vivid orange and purple, and the cleverly disguised arrow, hiding in the negative space between the last two letters.

Social media has enabled businesses to create their own brand personas online in a way that wasn’t possible before. On every platform, businesses can express themselves in a way that ties in with their overall brand strategy, strengthening brand awareness. From choosing their avatars, logos, and colour palettes to developing their unique voices, businesses can form and strengthen an audience’s idea of who they are through social media.
Design has always been, at least in the visual sense, a means of communicating information without the use of spoken words. From the hieroglyphics and cave drawings of ancient times, all the way to today’s prevalent use of emojis, design continues to be a silent driving force in our day-to-day lives. Thanks to technology and social media, now – more than ever – we’re engaging with large amounts of content that stem from the initial creation and graphic design process.
