I built the First Logo Grid Generator™
In the dynamic world of logo design, I've had the privilege of crafting hundreds of logos for a wide range of clients. Over the years, I've marvelled at the ever-evolving design landscape and asked myself, "What part of the creative process could be automated or enhanced with technology?"
As a seasoned logo designer, I've often found myself caught in the trap of "pixel-pushing," and I knew there had to be a better way.
One thing became abundantly clear: grids are the unsung heroes of logo design. They play a fundamental role in both correcting and presenting a logo.
However, creating these grids has traditionally been a time-consuming, manual process that can sometimes feel like a tedious pixel-by-pixel battle.
This got me thinking. In an industry where precision is paramount and time is of the essence, what if there was a solution that could simplify the creation of logo grids while maintaining the highest standards of design? That's when the idea for the first Logo Grid Generator™ was born.
I saw a massive opportunity to streamline this essential aspect of logo design and set out to create a tool that would revolutionise the way designers approach their craft.
It wasn't just about automating a process; it was about empowering designers to focus on the creative aspects of their work while eliminating the tedious and repetitive tasks.
Logo design grids have always been something that is aesthetically pleasing to glare at (when done correctly). Something to include when presenting the logo.
Not only that, but it allows logo designers to discover any hidden errors. Logo grids are a necessity within logo design, but can be a barrier when it comes to accuracy and above all; time.
I carried out a survey with the logo design community, to identify how long it takes designers to create grids. The results are shocking... good and bad.
'Good' because it was proof I was onto something, but 'Bad' because designers should not be spending 1 hour on ONE logo grid.
Imagine how many hours they spend every week, month and year...
Here are the results:
From these results, it was clear. Even if I made a Logo Grid Generator™ that generates grids in 5 minutes, it would be a BIG win.
However, Grid it™ produces grids instantly... what use to take 60 minutes, now takes 0.6 seconds.
When building Grid it™, the aim was for it to be:
Making these points the ultimate focus, it resulted in building a product that solved vital pain points for logo designers when creating grids:
