Creating Your Gas Station Logo

Gas stations are part of the billion-dollar oil industry. In this industry, there is a lot of competition so owners must take their brand strategy seriously. 

Successful logos take into consideration various elements like colors, icons, and fonts. In this guide, we will help you create a memorable logo. 

Colors

Think of your favorite gas station to fill your car up at. Now think of their logo. In most cases, the first thing that comes to mind is the color. 

Color grabs the consumer's attention and makes the consumer feel a specific way. This is known as “color psychology,” in which certain colors elicit certain emotions. Blues are very calming, while reds are robust and noticeable. 

British Petroleum (BP) is known for its research on alternative energy. They make an effort to be environmentally forward. Therefore, it makes sense why they use the color green in their logo, as green represents grace, harmony, and the color of the earth. 

When picking colors for a logo, it's essential to think about what colors you like and what colors work together. However, it's also vital to know the color psychology behind each one you choose and how it will make consumers feel.

Icons & Symbols

Icons and symbols give your logo personality. They take the brand name, represent it visually, and help the consumer remember the brand. Think of the consumer's brain as real estate — you want to buy up as much of it as possible. Icons help you do that.

For example, Shell has a great logo because it stays remembered and is easy to recognize when you’re driving down the road. It is simple, effective, and represents the company's name in the simplest way possible—it's a seashell. 

Shell's logo became so synonymous with the brand that in 1999 they removed their name from the logo. When thinking of icons and symbols for your brand, take inspiration from household brands like Shell and think about the simplest way to convey your message.

Fonts

Fonts can be one of the more fun parts of logo creation. It is important to pick the right font. A font determines the look and feel of the logo. That is why it's so essential to make a calculated decision when choosing a font.

There are two main types of fonts: serif and sans serif. Serif fonts, like Times New Roman, have extra strokes at the end of letters, while sans-serif fonts do not. Gasoline company logos feature sans serif fonts, because they look and feel modern. In turn, this helps the brand feel modern, though ironically many of these companies are hundreds of years old. 

A recognizable logo in the gasoline industry that features a sans serif font is Exxon. The crossed X’s in the logo are simple but would be hard to accomplish cleanly with a serif font. As a result, the easy-to-read sans-serif font makes the crossed X’s eye-catching.

If you find a sans-serif font you like, try manipulating it to match your brand and enhance your overall logo.

Conclusion

Think about the best colors, fonts, and what type of picture you want to impress in the mind of your public when coming up with the perfect gas station logo. Remember, it is important to stay recognizable, yet still, communicate that you are a gas station.

Things to Consider When Picking a Logo

Your company logo can convey different meanings depending on the logo design you choose so try branding your company with a logo sporting symbols, icons, and/or fonts that clearly represents what you’re selling to your customers (e.g., use a coffee cup in the logo for a coffee shop).

Color Psychology - The colors in your business logo design can help define the mood of your business. Consider which color scheme will best represent your logo design when using the color editor and creating your company brand with our logo maker.

  • Warm colors such as red, orange, pink, brown, beige, and yellow are considered to be inviting or exciting.
  • Cool colors like blues, greens, and purples convey a relaxing mood in a brand relating to the ocean or a calming atmosphere. 
  • Black and white provide great contrast when branding your business and are easy to see and read. 

Accessibility - There are basic rules when it comes to creating an effective and accessible logo design. 

  • The font you choose should be easy for customers to read and recognize. 
  • Color contrast is vital for the readability of your business logo.

Icons vs. symbols to make your own logo design - Symbols can help to represent your business, like products you sell or the type and quality of service you offer; it’s like a visual metaphor for your logo design.

For example, a logo design for a CBD oil shop could be depicted as a leaf; the symbolism being that it’s earthy, organic, natural, or all of these. Or, if you own a computer store, you can create a logo design that has the icon of a computer, it can really be that simple.

Font style - Choosing the right font for a logo design is important since fonts capture the attention of customers and show what they can expect from your company. 

If you own a more formal business, such as an accounting firm, you’ll likely want to choose a font that is more minimalistic and professional. If you’re opening a business such as a toy store, you’ll probably want to choose a font that is more fun and whimsical.

What is the difference between copyright, trademark, and patent?

Copyright, trademark, and patent are all types of intellectual property (IP)  that do different things: 

Copyrights are often used by artists to protect their creative work; if someone copyrights their work (e.g., novel, song, etc.), they own the rights to be able to do what they want with it, from selling to recreating.

A trademark, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are commonly used for logos and slogans.

Patents are used to protect inventions and ideas. For instance, if someone creates a type of machine or tool, a patent can grant rights to the inventor so no one can use their invention/idea without permission.
