The survey is very important because this is where I get familiar with what the client does, the product and what the client`s ideas for the logo are. Be as detailed as possible. It will give me a better grasp of what styles you like. The logo survey is when the client should take the time to research styles, competitors and the market you plan to target. Once the survey is submitted, do not research it further. There are too many designs and styles out there, and I was guided by the specifications on your survey. As you look at different styles and logos, your specifications will change slightly each time. It is imperative that you know what you want, otherwise you will need to wait to hire the designer.
