If you're a yoga instructor and want to start your own business, you need to know how branding works. This is important because the first impression of your yoga studio will almost always be visual, and the visual needs to be appealing and consistent with the rest of your brand.
Here are my tips for creating a yoga logo that looks good and sends a strong message about what you offer:
A Meaningful Symbol or Image
A meaningful symbol or image is an essential part of your yoga brand.
The symbol or image should be associated with yoga and it should be unique, memorable, and appropriate for your product or service.
It's important that you choose an image that is appropriate for the audience you want to reach out to as well as for your product/service.
If you are selling clothing then choose a symbol that represents the idea of wearing clothes but in an interesting way. For example, if you want to sell yoga pants then choosing something like two people holding hands might not be appropriate because it does not convey any ideas about wearing pants (the opposite would be true if we were trying to sell socks).
You Can Keep It Simple
If you're just starting out with your yoga business, it can be tempting to get caught up in the glitz and glamour of all things amazing. But with a simple logo, you can keep it real and still get the message across. Here are some things to consider when creating your logo design:
- Keep it simple. A good rule of thumb is that if you have to explain what your logo means, then it's too complicated for most viewers to understand on their own without further explanation.
- Use a simple color scheme that works well together such as black & white or blue & red (or even green & yellow!). You want people who look at your logo instantly recognize what type of business yours is within seconds so they'll make sure they come check you out!
- Select an appropriate font style that matches both how serious or playful/funny your company identity may be perceived by potential clients based on social media activity etcetera...
The right color scheme can help your brand stand out and feel friendly, professional, serious or energetic. Color theory is all about the emotions that certain colors evoke. In fact, it's often used in marketing and branding because it works so well (that’s why we use this technique). The right colors can help you convey the message you intend to send while also establishing an emotional connection with your audience.
An Appealing Font
Fonts are an essential part of developing a logo. You want to make sure that your font is easy to read and doesn’t look like it was designed by a chubby ten-year-old with a crayon.
If you choose a font that is hard to read, people will not be able to see what your logo says if they are too far away from it or if they aren’t looking directly at it. The font also needs to work on devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers—so choose one that works well in all those situations!
You must be consistent with yoga branding!
The first rule of branding: be consistent.
You might think that your logo is the most important aspect of branding, but it’s not—it’s just one piece of a larger puzzle. Your entire brand should have a cohesive message and look, from your website to your social media pages to your business cards and more. Consistency is key for building trust with your clients, who need to know that what they see online is what they will get when they sign up for classes at your studio.
