These are not somehow an important and does not associations with any rigid rules, of course, but remember that they all are fully useful and worthable. You're always keeping in mind as you make your logo and choosing your logo color schemes.

Multiple Color's Or Single Color?


Before designing your logo, you can always search out other related logo's, so you can get an idea about logo designing. As you can seen many times on different great and successful companies logo contains multiple colours in their logo, like Google, eBay, Windows etc.

But I personally recommend you and this is very useful for you too, to always choose only one color into your logo. Choose one color can help you to convey your message and voice to your customers. Because single color make your logo as a brand and people easily identify your brand. I never ever recommend you to choose multiple colors, because these are not good. 

Follow the 60-30-10 Rule


This is very awesome and frequently use rule if you want to designing a multiple color logo. Designers always use 60-30-10 rule, which is simple meaning that, use any three different colors and use them in the ration of 60% and 30% and 10% etc. This is very powerful rule that provides your a unique and simple way to create a professional color schemes for your brand.


Use Black and White Color


Have you ever think that black and white colors also use very much in designing. If you also wonder about to use these both colors into your logo, then always first look out your brand. If your logo is all about the invoices and letter heads then use black and white because it plays a best role. These colors can work best for any type of designing and shapes. But normally people doesn't prefer these colors. 

Maximum Colors


As I mentioned above to use only single color for your log designing because it is good for your brand. But if you want and try to use multiple colors then keep in mind that not use more than four colors. 4 Colors is not the standard but professionals always suggest you to choose maximum four colors when you design your company logo. 

It is only depend of your taste, interest and business form, of which colors you use and how much percentage. But normally people use three colors with the ratio of 60-30-10% that is a very awesome and frequently use rule to designing a professional logo for your brand. 

Always Think Globally


If you're a local organization and only work within some short area then it's OK, but if your client is a global corporation, then always choose your logo colors carefully.

This is only because, there are different cultures in different countries, so colors are interpreted. E.G China is famous to like RED color, while white color is the death and mourning in India. Green is like in Pakistan, so it is very important for you to think globally and know about the cultural differences. 

Finally, I recommend you that not only focus on your color schemes only, because there are many other factors also involves in logo design. So I hope this post helps you to choose a right and best color schemes for your logo design and make your brand more successful.
