Hi all,
lately, I have had a hard time finding ideas in designing logos, as a designer on a logoground that requires us to design a logo without a brief, how do you find ideas for your logo?
any advice or tips for me?

First of all, what is category do you want to choose?

The idea it self is not that hard. You always can found them easily.
- prepare a paper and pencil
- open the internet images, pinterest, elevanto market, shuttershock, and so on, many of them.
- look up for while, take the 2-3 object that related with your choice category.
- Evaluate it that Does it give any good meaning for your goal and relevant or not.
- If yes, specify its style, color, font, effect etc.

Technique 2
- You just scratch your paper randomly.
- If you can see a shape that you recognize, take it as one of the object elements for your logo.
- After that combine with other objects or may be with a behavior, trait or action.
- Reevaluate the symbols to see if the results of the brainstorming gives a meaning that is relevant to the category you choose here. Whether the logo will be sought by the client or not. Only later, you can determine the style that matches with your project.

hope this helps

"Inspiration exists, but it must find you working."
Pablo Picasso

In my experience this is exactly right. When I look for ideas I usually don't like any of the ideas I come up with. But when I'm busy designing (or drawing or painting) I'll get a steady stream of ideas and I have to make sketches just to remember them all. I recommend ava19nauval's technique 2: Get a pencil on paper and start. Ideas will follow.

Funny because I have it quite opposite. Just like with riding bicycle I have to have an aim or inspiration. Then I get ideas how to get there.

That's why I'm not very prolific designer when it comes to ready for sale logos. I take a pencil and see only lions. I feel much better when someone needs certain logo. Then I can try to make him happy.

With sculpture it's similar. I don't bang at the tree trunk, looking at what will come my way. Something has to catch my eye or got into my soul. Then I draw, let it seat for a while and start banging.

I guess painters may be different. If I take a pencil without an aim I will draw pretty girl instantly. Or a lion in money state of mind.

Interesting. Part of it might be that sculpture techniques like carving are super unforgiving, so you have to know what you are working towards before you start. With painting you can easily redo any part of the painting a thousand times, making it safe to start even if the idea isn't well formed in your head.

Strong halucinogenic drugs.

Seriously tho? its easier to make a good logo without a brief and have it find a client than make something according to a demanding brief. Take a piece of paper and a pencil and start designing...

I started drawing some 50 years ago and I'm still learning how to do it well. So don't tell me I never tried. However that's not how it works with me. First I have a vision than I try to repeat it on paper. Never the opposite.

Maybe I'm not that creative after all. I can't do something from nothing like God. I always rely on His creations.
