When talking about logo design we all know the public should be able to get the brand message in matter of seconds. Yet, having a logo with an extensive colour palette or relying too heavily on colour are very common mistakes.
Colour should be the last feature when making a logo, mainly because a logo has to look good in black and white as well as colour. That said, having the right hint is still important. And as general rule a logo design shouldn’t have more than 3 colours. Excessive use of colour can cause confusion. And a logo design can’t make a good impact with a large mix of shades and hues.
