Age Group:

This creates an interest among the young kids and grabs their attention. If the customer is a teenager the designer must make sure to get his youthful brain active to make the teenager’s attention. The logo must attract the customer just like a beautiful face of a lady or a man.The older people try to relate themselves if the logo constitutes a slight touch of history.
 Products/Services Available:

Similarly, a company with IT or professional services must take care that the elegance is maintained throughout the logo which is a major factor.
For example, E-commerce site AMAZON has an arrow mark from the first A to Z, suggesting products from A-Z i.e. everything is available here. This is simple notation how their services work and sometimes these small figures make it a statement.
Competition:

The public has to recognize the logo and that must catch the attention. So they use dark and bold colors so that they are visible from far distances.
Similarly, the color pattern changes for logos which depict the brand on the clothes. The logo must not dominate color of the fabric but it must be clear that the brand is understood clearly.
For companies who have products like paint bottles, drink bottles and other objects which have a destined shape, the logo must be fit to the shape and clearly visible. So the pattern changes here and the designer has to be creative enough to make it the best logo.
