Why do I need a logo for my business?
I have a logo. Now what?
Congratulations! Now it’s a matter of applying your logo throughout your business materials. Any client-facing documents you produce for your business should at least have your logo on them, ideally with some contact details or your website. Your designer can also provide you with a brand colour palette, with at least a range of primary colours and their CMYK and RGB values, as well as their hexadecimal color values (these start with a # and are followed by a six letter/number combo). Ensure you use these colours consistently on any printed materials such as business cards, stationery and flyers, on your website, and in digital documents such as presentations and slides.
