How to create an original logo?

Everybody knows about the importance of a good logotype for every organization. But what should a good logo be like? Of course, it should be memorable and original. One of the main roles of the logo is to reflect the main activity of a company. However, it is quite difficult to express everything that leaders want to convey to a client in such a small and capacious image. We have a large number of ready-made “symbols” of companies, so it is difficult to invent and create something unusual for an organization that has just paved the way to the market. Let's turn to resources that can help a person who is just starting to create logos.

In addition to well-known websites like Pinterest, Behance, and Dribble, there are many other interesting sources for finding ideas. Each of the websites and blogs below presents a large amount of materials to use, and tips for inspiration.
