Logo design for young volunteers
At what stage should you start branding yourself? Is 22 years of age too early to worry about logo design, business cards and a general branding exercise? It really depends on the individual of course. In general though the earlier a young person considers the image they present to the world the better it is.
Too many young people start their professional life not caring about the image they develop. In the age of the internet where everything spreads, is remembered for ever and most definitely public it’s surely not a bad idea to be careful from an early age on.
Young people make the mistake of thinking that it’s fun to have a sexy name as a label when picking a Twitter name or email address. What they don’t think through carefully enough is the fact that the internet doesn’t really forget.
That label, online identity stays around a really long time. In fact there are now specialist lawyers whose work consists of managing online reputations. That is they scour the internet to find and where possible destroy items that could harm their clients.
Wouldn’t it be just so much easier to brand oneself cautiously from an early age so that these kinds of costs don’t occur at a later stage.
