Naming is the process by which you attribute a word – common or constructed that designates something.
You can brainstorm a name by thinking about the thing and writing down whatever comes to mind until something sticks. You might need to give it time for the best ones to rise to the surface.
Or try following these steps:
- Choose the general feel you are after (e.g. organic/natural vs industrial)
- Choose a word that represents the message to pass across -reliable, trustworthy, expensive, cheap, luxury vs cheap and cheerful.
- Find a synonym for the word.
- Find an image to represent the synonym.
- Google image search the synonym.
You are taking one thing and matching it with another in order to create something new.
