I am designing an application where I have two brands' logos to be displayed on the header. Positioning two brand logos next to each other looks odd.

Which is the best way to position the logos on the header?

    Welcome Kevin! Could you share a little more context? What's the reason for needing two logos? What's the relationship between the two?

  • The context of this usability is to display both my brand logo as well as my customer's brand logo on the header. Feb 20, 2019 at 8:22
  • Is there a hierarchical relationship between the two? Should one be more prominent than the other?

  • There is no hierarchical relationship between those brands, they are my customer. I think customer brand logo can be prominent than another one. Feb 20, 2019 at 10:55
  • What is the rationale / business reason for having your logo on there at all? If your customer is paying you for the site then it's their site, not yours. Can you elaborate on that part so people don't focus on the wrong part of this question?

This is very difficult to answer because I don't know what your logos look like.

However, I would consider putting the Brand Logo 2 on the left side before the user and notification icons. This is because on many websites these things will be the very last things in the header and having them just before the logo. (Like in your second picture) could be confusing.

This might end up looking horrible though (depending on the icon) so you should definitely have a bunch of end users look at multiple possibilities to chose.


Would it be possible to have the customer's logo up top (since they're the paying customer) and your logo in the footer, in a "powered by" sort of display? Similar to a customized WordPress site. The client customizes the site with their brand, but the very bottom prominently states that the site was created with WordPress. Just a thought. It's hard to know without more context of the site, the industry, the logos, etc.
