I have been working for a few days trying to design a new logo forPVV Web Design Sheffield.
I thought the old one I had looked a bit dated and in seriously need of a touch here and there. You don’t have to be a marketing expert these days to know how important is a logo for brand building.
It is not an easy task I have to say as there are thousands of possibilities. If you don’t want to spend any money or you are a self employed with a tight budget there are lots of free available options out there on the internet. Logo generator, logo maker…you only have to type it in google and the options are endless like I said.
After doing some extensive research I found out that CANVA was my best choice of weapon. I already owned an account there which it was a bonus. Its a brilliant and very easy to use software to create your own posters or make ads for your companies social media accounts. There are loads of templates and fonts to choose, from premium to free ones. And yes there is a logo maker and its pretty good!
Im pretty sure there must be dozens of other possibilities on the net but I didn’t have to sign on in (yet) another account, something I personally find very tedious.
The downside is that CANVA is popular and used by lots of people so you will have to come up with something truly original! But don’t let this to put you down. Just be open minded, play with it (Its just drag and drop really), add some colours you like and thats it!
A good advice (At least it worked with me) its to search in other sectors that might not be too related to yours, in order to have less chances to replicate another logo too similar on the same market that your business belongs to.
So here are the results!
To be honest there is no particular motif behind it. After deliberating with 10 or 15 options (yes it really gets THAT confusing at some point!) I thought this one was my favourite. I just liked the colours and the simplicity of the design.
I believe this days logos don’t have to be too complicated. Less is more! ….although that might change in the near future…as it always does.

Full length video clips are one of the hottest web design trends for 2017. High speed Internet connections and the use of faster mobile and portable devices makes it easier for websites to include high definition explainer style videos. Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo and more recently Snapchat and Periscope are a fine example for it. One image better than a thousand words they say. And so true! Last studies say that more than 50% of online traffic comes from mobile phones.
Story telling, audience building and customer engaging are concepts that we should not forget in Web Design.

Google will rank higher your website if it is xmobile friendly.
The web is going mobile. And thats a fact. In 2015 there are already more mobile phones than PCs. Everyday more and more people use the phone to browse the internet, purchase products and download apps. And we take this very seriously in PVV Web Design.
Starting on April 21, Google will be expanding the use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. Which in other words means that your website will have more chances to appear on the first pages of Google if it is mobile responsive and non-mobile optimised sites are likely to experience an important drop.
But what is a mobile friendly website ? Basically when you look to a web with only the desktop version (or non mobile friendly) you have to pinch and zoom in order to be able to read the text or see the photos. Its a pretty annoying task to be honest and most of the times the users are more likely to abandon your site and look somewhere else. You can read more about it in Google Webmaster Central Blog
According to Deloitte 35 million people have a smartphone in the UK, which means over half the population. Figures that, without a doubt, will change dramatically on the upcoming months.
And here is where making the move to mobile becomes essential. Text and photos big enough to read, space in between links, one scroll down pages. In other words a clear visible and easy to navigate content.Because at the end of the day its all about a pleasant user experience.
So from April 21st 2015, and thanks to Google, its a new era for Mobile responsiveness.
Contact us if you want a free estimate for an affordable mobile responsive website. We are very determined to help small businesses and self employed people in Sheffield and all Yorkshire area so we are really hoping to hear from you!
