About the Logo
What does your logo mean? What meanings are you trying to portray? Why did you choose that shape and those colors? Who designed the logo?
Logo Shape for Mikkomi
There are a number of meanings the logo is meant to convey, each of which are tied directly into the shape of the logo icon.
If you look at the logo shape, it is a series of concentric circles seen from the side. This helps portray a number of ideas and concepts that are important to Mikkomi and what we do:
- The Ripple Effect – Digital publishing (i.e. making a website, and publishing a blog) is all about creating ongoing ripples in the ocean of the internet. These concentric rings connote this ripple effect.
- Building a Tower – The shapes also create a tower shape building up, which is also indicative of what a new website can do for you. The website is the base of all of your other online business activities.
- Target Shape – If the 3-dimensional shape of the logo were viewed from above, it would show the shape of a target. Mikkomi works with you to help direct your website toward your target audience.
- Steadily Bigger – The circle shapes start small and grow bigger with each new shape. This helps illustrate what we work toward when building your website. Initially, it may not seem like there is a huge impact, but as your site is live, and gets indexed, and gets seen by your clients and customers, the impact grows larger and larger over time.
Colors for Mikkomi
When initiating a logo or branding project, the core color or colors is always going to be at the forefront of the design process. Do you want the cool corporate look of blue, the natural, growth look of green, the calm, organic look of brown, or the energy of red?
For Mikkomi, we chose a color swatch that starts with red. Red implies strength and energy, both qualities we bring to your website development. We work to strengthen and energize your presence on the internet with your website.
Logo Designer for Mikkomi
Ari Gunzburg designed the Mikkomi logo, using design experience that dates back to 1999. Starting with a blank sketchbook, Ari doodled and sketched many shapes and ideas, looking for the perfect idea that would properly convey what Mikkomi is all about. The better ideas were then transferred to the computer, creating the vector lines that make up a final logo. As each logo concept was finalized, it was clear to see which logo was the best and most relevant to Mikkomi.
How to illustrate an abstract concept? This question, applied to Mikkomi, made this logo project both interesting and difficult. As the idea behind Mikkomi began forming into the shape you see today, the joy of creation became the confidence of completion.Ari Gunzburg
