Once again I am back with Logo designing Tips, this time I am going to share my tips which I use to Boost my Creativity in Logo Designing. Well, its not just easy to be creative every time, but for your information its not impossible too. You can be creative, if you follow certain rules. Once again my best friend in my creative process, yes a cup of Hot coffee, always refreshes my mind. Even I am away from my home, I really love to serve coffee or a hot Tea, to get ideas to refresh my mind and not to forget the solid taste too. (It is advised not to overtake coffee.)
Ok so here is some of my tips on “Ways to Boost your Creativity in Logo Designing”
#1. One project at a time
May be you get one or more clients in a day, it is recommended not to work more than one project at a time. Because it kills the productivity and we lack creativity in the design. So, whenever you work on your project focus on only one project at a time. Also it will help you to get more and more ideas. Did you know you can get many ideas, even after you finished the project, at that time think about the design which you already completed, think of the deadline and then start altering accordingly. Whenever you were asked to design a logo, feel free to ask at least 4-5 days for the project. Because a logo can be complete in one day or sometimes takes a month too, but in my career usually I complete a logo in 24 hour or so.
#2. Collect as much inspiration as you can
Creative inspiration helps a lot, I usually move away from my desk to get inspiration or it may be creative inspiration. Well I am in a place where we have lots of Super markets, malls, theaters etc. So its easy for me to get inspired by those designs. I really love to move malls on the top floor, where I see many shops and fun places with interactive designs from all over the world. If you really don’t like to move away from your desk, then better visit websites which provide inspirations design. For logo you can visit LogoFaves, Logopond, Logospire also you can check my own article to get inspiration:
Not just from these sites, you can also get inspiration from visiting Designing sites like Deviantart, Dribbble. Even you boost your creativity by getting inspiration from your old designs too. I really love my portfolio you can check here
#3. Talk to your designer friends.
Talk, Talk and Talk. The more you talk about designs the more you can boost your creativity. One of the most amazing way to boost your creativity on a certain project is to talk with your designer friends , Particularly I have only two designer friends locally whom I talked almost, one is my Girlfriend yes Nikita Mishra one of our editor too and another is my friend Avdhesh who recently joined us. When my mind doesn’t work the way it should be, I pick my cell phone and hit the number of my GF ( Don’t ask for the number lol :P) and we start talking about the project, in this way she came up with some nice concepts and also help me to boost my creativity.

Is this enough to boost my creativity?
Well the answer is NO, you can get many ways to boost your creativity, let us talk some more ways to be creative.
Design like a child
If you fail to design a creative logo, then design anything you came up. I mean a silly design, remember make, logo doesn’t should be minimalistic every time. A silly design can convey a lot more message about the company and also it leaves a great impact on the audience.
Brainstorm like ants
Brainstorming is one of the process, which every logo designer should do, before designing a simple logo too. Brainstorming helps us to get more and more creative ideas before we move to our desktop work. Personally I have my drawing sketch pad, in which I do my brainstorming even I am not in the mood of working. But believe me brainstorming is really a must process for designers. Sometime you came up with some cool concept, what you should have to do is immediately draw the sketch in your pad, and later alter it modify it as per the need.
