Quick tips for a ‘good’ trademark


The tips to create a ‘good’ trade mark before its adoption are:

– Make it distinctive and unusual for the goods/services concerned. Try inventing a word

– Be bold, clever and playful with the brand. Stand out

– Don’t limit yourself to a brand specific to your current field. Think long term

– Avoid overly descriptive terms of the goods/services you are offering

– Avoid terms in common use either in general language or in your trade

Conduct searches to make sure you are not infringing the earlier rights of another

– Don’t pick a trade mark identical or too close to someone else’s name

– Consider registering the name as a trade mark if it is available.
