Five Qualities of Great Logo Design

January 2, 2018

Logo design is a joy and sometimes a challenge. At this point in my career, I’ve designed hundreds of logos. Some clients come to me with very definite ideas for their logo and branding. Others have few ideas, and after meeting with these clients and asking many questions, we develop a direction. Labor ensues, and if both client and designer stay on task, a great logo is born.

What is Branding?

June 9, 2017

Most business owners understand the value of creating quality marketing pieces to build a trusted brand. But many don’t realize how much care and effort is required to build and maintain a brand. The first thing start-ups do is to pick a name for the purpose of identifying themselves. This is actually the first step of your branding process. Unfortunately, when some companies come in to Ohno Design asking for help with their visual identity, the name they have chosen may only make sense to them.

June 5, 2017

In patent law, timing is important. There are several ways that you could lose your patent rights without knowing it. If you have an invention and want to pursue patent rights to prevent others from profiting from your invention and competing with you in the marketplace, you should talk to a patent attorney soon after you determine you have an invention.

The U.S. Small Business Administration has established size standards for small businesses that vary by industry, based on the number of employees and average annual receipts. Small business = By definition, in manufacturing, fewer than 1,500 employees

If you capture a million users, keep your mouth shut. Be silent and remain so until you are much larger. This increases the likelihood that a larger player in the industry will make an acquisition offer after you’ve demonstrated your success. You’ve successfully disrupted a market, which will attract capital to fuel your growth.*

DO WHAT YOU LOVE!

When the alarm clock rings, what goes through your head? Are you excited to start your day? I’m not expecting your answer to be yes every morning, but ask yourself—and answer honestly—if you’re happy with what you do.

The reality is that you spend just as much time at work as you do at home. If you get up around 6 a.m. to be to work by 8 a.m., work until 5 p.m., and go to bed at 10 p.m., you would’ve been up for 16 hours—half of which you spent at work.

Life is short. You should look in the mirror and be able to tell yourself that you’re living your passion.

If you can’t, it’s never too late to reassess what you’re doing. Ask yourself if you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur, realize your dream, and make things happen. If the answers are yes, yes, and yes, there’s no better time to start.

Here in MUSE you’ll get the uncensored truth about being an entrepreneur. It’s information you need to know—but might not know to ask.

Use this information as a guide to do something to inspire us all.
