#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Color”, “Vivid”, “Picture” and “Design”, you can see that while these words can be related to graphic design, they also suggest that you can expect a creative, professional and artistic design from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

My Shortlist:

Colart

Kreate Tribe

VitaCreo Studio

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great graphic design business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends since they are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Colart

This name conveys a professional and artistic services that focus on colorful designs.

Kreate Tribe

This name conveys creative and professional graphic services.

VitaCreo Studio

This name conveys a service that specializes in creative graphic design made by experts in the field.

Picmatic

This name conveys a service that specializes in artistic graphic design made by using the advanced tools and technology.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great graphic design business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful graphic design businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Saffron Logo

Saffron
Saffron is known as being more valuable by weight than gold. By taking one of the most valuable items as their name, they are setting themselves above their competition. This name then suggests a more luxurious, expensive service. One that is befitting the biggest, most expensive brands. This is not a name for a company that wishes to work with small independents, but with large international corporations.

Hey Studio Logo

Hey Studio
This is a brilliant name for a graphic design company. It is so simple it almost seems like cheating. It grabs your attention and makes you smile. The brand is memorable, and the simplicity of their branding actually reflects the simplicity of their work which involves lots of eye grabbing block colors and clean design.

Litmus Logo

Litmus
This name refers to the litmus test. In an alkaline solution litmus turns blue, in an acid solution, red. What they are saying here is that they are adaptable. They react to brand identities and create complimentary design. They are a full graphic design company who will help you create the perfect look for your brand.

5 Tips for naming your graphic design business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused graphic terms like design, creative or art. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real graphic design business named “Saffron”.

Saffron is known as being more valuable by weight than gold. By taking one of the most valuable items as their name, they are setting themselves above their competition. This name then suggests a more luxurious, expensive service. This is not a name for a company that wishes to work with small independents, but with large international corporations.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Comics Corner, Graphics Gurus)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Retro Canvas – Retro communicates an old thing, but in the context of graphics, it conveys that company produces retro looking graphic designs.)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable graphic design business names could be:

  • Bugane Studio
  • Patakos Graphic
  • Vulanis Design

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Kreate Tribe and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Kreatribe, Create Tribe or KreaTri.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
