Wikipedia’s Definition logo is a graphical element (ideogram, symbol, emblem, icon, sign) that, together with its logotype (a uniquely set and arranged typeface) form a trademark or commercial brand. Typically, a logo's design is for immediate recognition. The logo is one aspect of a company's commercial brand, or economic or academic entity, and its shapes, colors, fonts, and images usually are different from others in a similar market. Logos are also used to identify organizations and other non-commercial entities.

Wikipedia’s Definition A slogan is a memorable motto or phrase used in a political, commercial, religious and other context as a repetitive expression of an idea or purpose.
Tips for Creating a Slogan Keep it short and simple. (No more than 10 words.) Make it memorable. (Puts a picture in your mind.) Explains what you do and how it benefits the customer. Ask yourself what you want the customer to remember about your business. Use keywords for your business; use thesaurus. Be creative! Get input from others. Make several and ask which is best.
Excellent Slogans “Betcha can’t eat just one.” – Lay’s “Breakfast of Champions” – Wheaties “Have it your way.” – Burger King “Just Do It” – Nike “You’re in good hands with Allstate.” – Allstate Insurance Company “I’m Loving It” – McDonald’s “Eat fresh” – Subway
Summary The logo and slogan should present a positive image for your business. A lot of thought should be given to the creation of the logo and slogan as they should be used for the life of your business. “You should not change your slogan as often as some people change their Facebook status.” Wallace Hall, Jonesboro Middle School
