When having a designer work on your logo try to fill out a design brief so they can get to work on as close to your idea as possible.

A few helpful things to keep in mind are:

  • Name of your company
  • Do you have a slogan?
  • A small description of your business.
  • What industry is your business part of?
  • Look online for some sample logos you like.
  • Do the same for logos you dislike.
  • What are the primary colors of your business?

All these things will help a designer in capturing your vision.
