Dog logo design inspiration
Match theme to breed personality
While the graphic representation of your dog can do a lot to establish the tone of your logo, this can be enhanced by playing up the personalities associated with different breeds. Retrievers, Labradors, and Collies are loyal and dependable. Lapdogs such as Scotties and Shih Tzus are cute and cuddly. Alsations are fierce guard dogs, and mutts have a scrappy, fun quality. Throw in a well-placed accessory and you can create a memorable character for your brand identity.
Keep bright color to fonts and accents
The majority of dog breeds are black, white, or a combination of both. When color is found in dog hair, it is in shades of gold, red, or brown. However, in many cases, it isn't required to identify a particular breed. If your logo begs for the inclusion of color in a dog illustration, for example, your company is named the Purple Pooch Pet Store then it is acceptable. Otherwise, it is best to keep it for use in fonts, accents, and backgrounds.
