All Brandpa logos follow the following core guidelines:
Things to avoid
- Don’t include “.com” in the logo*
- Don’t use clipart
- Don’t copy an existing logo or symbol

About half of our customers are in tech, so if you look at major tech consumer brands for inspiration (Google, Microsoft, MailChimp) you won’t go too far wrong.
Our logos will all be displayed at a size of 800 x 480 pixels, so design for that aspect ratio. The logo should not touch the edge of the canvas, and should be centred in the middle with enough space around to make the logo clear.
Please some examples below:

Where illustration is used, we prefer you keep it simple. Finely detailed artwork doesn’t make for a strong identity. Here’s one of ours we like:
