Today I found some interesting information on how people are applying Feng-Shui principles when getting a business logo designed and thought it was worth sharing.
Apparently, the ancient art of Feng-Shui need not work just for your home or garden, it has applications in business as well since it's basically about creating better quality energy.
There are four main Feng-Shui guidelines when it comes to the #design of business logos and other marketing visuals. These guidelines are based on essential Feng-Shui principles such as the Five Element theory, the Yin-Yang theory and the harmonious combination of various elements in order to best express specific energies. 1. Color 2. Shapes 3. Images & 4. Symbols
Here's How to Define the Feng-Shui Element of a Business.

- Color is key. Enhance your logo with colors that are missing from the vibration of your company’s name.
- Use five elements sequence to enhance your brand
- Use the color or shape of the element to represent the category of your business. Or use the control cycle, for example, if your business is communication you could use color yellow/orange to control it (communication = blue) as Orange did with their square orange logo.
