How to create a professional and customized logo

Graphics and design are not really for everyone. But when you want to open a business or even create a website that stands out from the crowd, the first thing to do is to have a nice logo that people remember and recognize.

Obviously, many professionals can make one for you, but usually, the cost is high, so one would like to try to fend for themselves. Unfortunately, however, as soon as you get under it, you immediately understand how difficult it is to do it by hand. But you need to know that there is a better, faster, and much easier way, perfect for those who do not know about computers or design by using a custom logo maker.

In today's article, I want to show you how to quickly create a professional and personalized logo (even for free). Thanks to sites called DesignEvo that simplify the creation a lot and in less than 5 minutes, you may have your file ready.

How to make a logo online

If you have no experience as a designer, the best solution is to use one of the many websites dedicated to creating logos. They are truly simple to use, easy and require no experience. Many of these portals have ready-made templates, where you can choose your brand's colors and write your name or slogan. Everything takes a few minutes, and once ready, and you can download the file in different formats and sizes.

Among all, I recommend DesignEvo, a logo maker that I personally tried and which I was delighted with. On this site, you can create a professional-looking free or paid online logo in seconds. You just need to create an account and access the drawing window to do this.

Once inside, you can choose from thousands of ready-made templates where you just need to enter the company or brand name and download the file. Alternatively, you can create one from scratch: by choosing this option, a window will open with a white screen where you can insert icons, graphics and text of all kinds to create a truly unique custom logo. Obviously, it takes longer, but if you can't find anything that suits you among the ready-made examples, you can also make it yourself.

Once ready, you can download it. Now you can see the difference between free and paid. Each logo you create can be downloaded for free, but only in 300 x 300 px format, without the transparent background, and if you use it, you must give DesignEvo credit.

If, on the other hand, you want the transparent logo in different formats and also have the copyright, you have to buy it. The price varies according to the formats and properties you want, but you still pay it once and you can then download and edit it as many times as you want.

5 Rules for creating a professional logo

I will give you some tips that will help you improve the result. Regardless of which of the methods you choose to use, there are steps you should take. They seem small, but they really make a difference. Here are five rules for creating a professional logo:

  1. It must be simple, but not too simple. That is, it must not be trivial.
  2. Choose a clear one in every format and size, especially if it's for a website. It should also look good when it is minimized as an icon or favicon.
  3. Add the name of your company or website.
  4. it must be original and unique, which stands out from the crowd and is immediately recognizable
  5. Find the right range and combination of colors that go well together but must also look good in black and white. Online you will find many ideas for combinations with various shades.

In fact, there are many others if you really want to get to a professional level, but by following these tips, you will already see that things will change.

In short

Branding is an aspect that should never be underestimated for those who want to create a successful project. Whether it's a small shop, a personal website or a giant store, creating a professional logo is one of the first steps to take! In today's article, I showed you that it is not difficult at all and how to create a custom one quickly and maybe even for free. The important thing is to get a result that fully reflects your ideas and, above all, you like it.
