Logo Design Tips

At LogoGarden, we know what it’s like to launch your dreams as a startup. When you’re just getting started, you need a powerful logo that communicates your business idea to potential customers, but you don’t have thousands to spend. A logo isn’t just a pretty visual image printed next to your name. It is an integral component of your brand and frequently the first thing a customer sees. The first step in creating a logo is not design; the first step is thinking about what you want to communicate. You want to create a logo that projects the brand image that matches the expectations of your customer. We also believe that you don’t have to be an expert graphic designer to create the logo you envision. Our DIY Logo Maker makes it easy to get the logo you want without the stress! To help you out, here are a few of our best tips that will help you create your perfect DIY logo.

Design tips

Use one color when creating your logo. A logo design that uses too many colors can get cluttered.

Use only one or two fonts when creating your logo. This makes it look like a cohesive unit.

Make sure the logo you create looks good online and in print, in black and white or in color.

Make sure your logo will look good on light and dark backgrounds. You might consider creating variations.

Create a logo that looks good big or small. It may appear in different sizes throughout its lifecycle.

When using the logo maker a safe choice is sticking to a one or two-dimensional design.

A vector format can be resized and used in a variety of media without losing the quality.

Gradient, shadowing, and embossing can look pretty on the page but they are difficult to reproduce on different substrates.

Use symbols instead of photos in your logo. They become outdated very quickly.

Analyze the negative space in your logo making sure that nothing undesirable appears there.
