Black on White Paper method is your first draft before exploring colors. The era of Black & White is always considered as Classic. One of the secret mantras used while designing timeless or classic logos by using both negative & positive space. Designers spend a lot of time in research before generating quick ideas via sketching.
A good logo can’t be designed over night. I am not talking about some of the freelancers who design for $5 to $10 in 4-5 hours, It is not about the Budget or Time than quality & purpose. If you are a business owner & really serious about your new start-up company, find a good designer who can understand your business model, your products, customers to your brand positions. But don’t make the mistake of hiring someone who can create glossy elements when it comes to look & feel that doesn’t solve any purpose at all.
