I agree those who start thinking. Specially if creating art for a client. In this case I belive Thinking is a must. Start gatheriing words, concepts related to the proyect. Once you open your client's brain to know what he/she wants, then let your creativity flow with client on mind and half of the work is done. you can even use scketching to get to know what your client needs.

I go directly to the computer. I end up with multiple files and pages when I am in the thought process. I end up coming out with 2 or 3 solid designs. As far as fonts. I type the logo text in caps and lower case and copy it with multiple fonts to see what the Caps look like in comparison the to the lower case letters. It works for me.

I only do that once, and always forget when not directly in the paint. Sometimes it comes out of nowhere, the idea will always come up when the mood is in a state of happy, peaceful, or angry. but if the idea confused all gone in an instant. are you all agree?

research first, gather ideas and concepts, sketch best idea that is formed after research either on paper or a quick sketch on illustrator using the brush then perform it in pen tool which is the best! after that comes the coloring :)

I do like the tablet for sketching, but I find I work better in design mode, because I find inspiration when I am creating.

My Design Process are:
1. Read the client brief carefully.
2. Brainstorming for ideas.
3. Sketch on paper(s)
4. Scan the best idea sketch.
5. Trace it with illustrator.
6. Change the colors and fonts.
7. Submit.

Hi all!
For me is very similar that all of you, ideally I have a concept to work with and then try to come out with a very different one. I have to add that it is more difficult for me to work for DesignContest jobs, I prohibited myself to see what other designers have done before working in my concepts, otherwise I get influenced by them. Believe me, it is hard not to peep. I prefer the blind contests. The process is the same as working for my own clients, but the feeling of competing... what do you think?

Sometimes I have an immediate idea and go directly to computer. A lot of times, I will sketch ideas out with pen/paper doing thumbnails (the old-fashion way). I usually always start with fonts (working with all caps/upper-lower case and all lower case) to see what I like and is appropriate for the project. I then design icon(s) if needed for the logo and put it all together. I do usually design in black and white only first to get a good solid concept and then move to color variations to see which works best.

Hi xantov

Ask the right questions! This is probably the most important step in the logo design process.

What does the company do?
Where? Local, national or global?
Who are the target audience? A particular age group? High, mid or low earners?
Where will the logo be displayed? Business cards, vehicle livery, apparel, a website, etc.
Who are the competitors? You need to differentiate your logo design from the competition, for example, by choosing a different colour scheme.

always sketch first, because you can free your mind and fast sketch the idea on a paper so you are not wasting time

I agree with sunface, the most important thing is knowing what you have to design and for who is intended your design.
If it's on paper or directly on the computer it depends. Each designer has it's own process of creation. I usually create directly on computer because it's easy to play with your design and get other ideas that you haven't thought of.
