Biotech Logo Design: The First Step in Building an Early-Stage Company’s Brand

Biotech Website Design + Development

Establish a biotech logo design and brand before tackling a digital presence.

A biotech logo needs to match the breakthrough science and technology a startup has created. Entering a crowded biotech marketplace as an emerging start-up in biotech can feel intimidating. Creating trust and credibility is key, and from a branding perspective, it all starts with a highly original logo design that speaks to your biotech company’s vision.

More often than not, the start-up biotech companies that approach a digital agency for help are ready to build or redesign their website. In many cases what is realized early on is that their logo design and branding are missing the mark.

It is important to think about the biotech’s brand and logo design first and foremost. It’s hard to change that once it has been established. Experience in branding and website design, tells us that. In many cases, where this has already been established, it can’t be redesigned, although many times it can evolve. But again, another reason to address the brand and logo before anything else.

A second issue with not being able to redesign a biotech logo once one has been established is that it can hold back an innovative website design and vision. Another reason to think about your biotech’s logo design first.

As a start-up biotech company looking to gain traction and funding, your biotech logo design can’t look like it was pieced together from an online marketplace, or designed by a company founder.

A professional, original logo design for your biotech that is unique to you will help to successfully introduce your company to the world. Your biotech logo design is the face of your company, and the first impression you make is important.

Biotech logo is all about the timing

The perfect time for your rebrand or design of a biotech logo is right before biotech messaging and a website are created. This gives your web designer the ability to extend your branding throughout your new website to create an even more engaging online presence.

Creating your biotech logo design alongside your new biotech website prevents your company from falling into the common trap of investing time and energy into a logo design that you are locked into before your website is created. Building these critical components together allows for fluidity and alignment of your brand and website which are important to your success.

Here are 4 reasons why you need professional biotech logo for your startup or emerging scientific company

1. A biotech logo design for your startup or company launch to stand out in the crowd.

Showing the world what makes your biotech company unique through your logo design and brand is the best way to get noticed.

What makes your biotech’s science different? How does your innovation solve problems? How will your biotech company help people?

Biotech companies are quickly learning that it takes a brand and biotech logo design that is truly original and a bit outside the box to stand out in a saturated market.

2. A logo should attract attention with bright colors and contrast.

More biotech companies are embracing bright colors and contrast to draw attention in a once drab biotech space.

For many years, biotech websites followed suit to what the majority of biotech companies were doing when it came to branding and biotech logo design. Very traditional, muted colors that were once commonplace are now a thing of the past, as more biotech companies are realizing the power and intrigue of a bright color palette.

NeuroPro Therapeutics is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company actively developing proprietary compounds to treat neurologic diseases, including epilepsy. The company approached our digital agency for a new website design to launch the company.  Soon into the project, the biotech startup realized their branding and biotech logo design needed a lift, too. NeuroPro wanted their design to visually illustrate brain synapses and neurons firing, so the client gave our team sketches of neurons, which greatly inspired the creative process. The color scheme was developed with epilepsy in mind and featured big, bright colors and contrast to capture attention and create visual intrigue. Their biotech company develops innovative tools for brain science research and wanted the look and feel of their website and brand to mirror that innovation.

Your logo is the face of your biotech brand so it needs to feel professional and modern to build trust and credibility.

Your brand is your first impression with a visitor or potential future partner and investor. It’s important to make that impression a positive one. Your brand and biotech logo design needs to feel professional and modern to create the legitimacy you need to enter the market successfully and attract potential new investors and partners.
