"You can judge a good logo by five criteria," says Katrin Hasler, who founded the Zurich agency Ruby a few months ago. "It has to be as simple as possible, as memorable as possible, flexible to use, so that it works in large and small applications - on and offline and in different media. It has to be timeless, so you don't have to redesign again and again. And, what's also very important: It has to fit well with the brand character, the brand positioning."

Katrin Hasler and also industry colleagues Fabian Bertschinger, creative director and member of the executive board at the Process agency, and René Allemann, founder and CEO of the branding company Branders, answered six questions about logos for Werbewoche: What is your favorite logo? Which do you find completely unsuccessful? What makes a good logo? What do you have to look out for when designing a new logo? Who needs a logo anyway? What is the importance of a logo in the overall brand identity?
