Why do I need to validate my logo?

Avoid pixelated logos

Having your brand misrepresented because you have a low quality logo in the incorrect format, is completely avoidable. The Brandisty logo validator will make sure your logo file is in pristine condition so your brand always looks dapper.

Make sure your files are useable

Avoid the back and forth between design and production teams trying to hunt down your logo in the correct file format. The logo validator will audit your file before you put into motion a game of brand pong. Stop wasting time, and make sure your logo is useable.

Print vs. digital

In order for your brand to show up correctly in both digital and print mediums, you will need to have multiple versions of your logo. Each colorspace has different best practices and the Brandisty logo validator will detect these issues and offer suggestions.

Make sure your logo scales

Ultimately it comes down to having your logo in a vector file format. Without having a vector version of your logo, you will have issues scaling it for large implementations (billboards, banners and blimps). Our logo validator will make sure your logo works for all situations, large and small.

The Breakdown

Is a vector

You need to remove all rasterized images from your logo file. Logo files should be 100% vector objects. Find out more.

Vector logos are scalable in size allowing them to be enlarged to fit the side of a blimp or reduced to the size of a business card without jeopardizing quality. By creating a 100% vector file you’re ensuring your brand identity represented in the highest quality, no matter the situation.

Has a recognized colorspace

Your logo has some peculiar color spaces in it, which can make it difficult to use in most situations. Find out more.

Having your files created in a recognized color space helps ensure that your colors are represented properly in various programs and processes. The most common color spaces for production are RGB, CMYK, and Pantone. We suggest having a version of your logo in each of these color spaces and use them accordingly when distributing for print and digital situations.

Includes all needed fonts

Your file is using fonts that are not embedded. Without the font, programs will take their best guess and your logo will appear incorrect!

When working with fonts, you should either embed your font in the logo file, or convert the fonts to outlines. If you fail to do this, and use a font that is not already installed on the computer trying to work with the file, a substitution will be made. The substitution is almost always poor, and your brand will be misrepresented.

Fonts converted to outlines

It’s recommended that you convert your fonts to outlines before exporting your file. This ensures that the font file doesn’t need to be installed on devices accessing your file in the future.

It’s important to outline your fonts so the client won’t need to have the font installed on their system. You can also embed the font in the logo file, but this will make the file size much larger. To maintain the perfect look, and smallest file size, convert your fonts to outlines.

All objects are same colorspace

You have mixed color spaces in your logo file. To make sure that your file is properly formatted only use one color space in each file. Find out more.

Having one color space in your file ensures that it’s properly formatted for a specific use case. RGB files are used digitally. CMYK and Pantone files are used for print. When you have multiple color spaces in a file, the colors will need to be converted to be used, and the conversion can be undesirable.

Print logo has no gradients

Your logo is intended for use in print documents but contains gradients. It’s recommend that gradients only be used in RGB or digital files and that a flat version is created for print.

Besides adding extra cost, gradients don’t always translate well to print so it’s best practice to avoid them when preparing CMYK and Pantone logos.

Print logo has 5 or fewer colors

Your logo is using more than 5 colors for print. Since each color can add cost to printing it’s recommended you use less than 5 colors.

The more colors that are required to print your logo, the more expensive the print costs will be. We recommend having less than 5 colors if possible.
