To design a logo you don’t have to spend hundreds or thousands when you need a quick, clean and good looking logo. There are up to 3 parts of a logo that you may choose to include. The must have piece is the name of your company. The optional pieces are the icon (which often is referred to as the logo) and a slogan. If you need a customized icon or
There is a reason graphic designers get paid well. And if you don’t have a sense of graphic style or online design ability, these designers are well worth hiring. The time it will take you to create, edit and potential re-create a logo doing it yourself (even with the easiest of tools like I’m going to show you) may not get you as far if you are artistically challenged.
If you’re a creative type, you can become a faux graphic designer using online sites. Sites like DesignEvo and LogoMaker.com are two that I found to be easiest. They have similar features. DesignEvo’s advantage is that you may download a free version. It’s lower resolution, but it is fine to use online on a website/blog and/or social media accounts and graphics.
Almost Free Logo Online Design Tools
DesignEvo has a very easy to use editor. I found more unique icon choices at LogoMaker.com but you have to spend a minimum of $39.95 for the logo files. It is free to make your design on LogoMaker.com, however, the logo is not free to download or use. The downloadable file is what you basically pay for. DesignEvo will simply ask you to give credit on social media to download the logo design you make. If budget is a factor you might simply try both tools, see which you like best and go from there.
The Online Design Tool Features
Both design tools are easy to use. The LogoMaker.com designer interface is more basic than DesignEvo. DesignEvo allows you to use a gradient color scheme on the icon. You can change the colors, fonts, sizing, and orientation of the logo. You can add elements like shapes colored background. You can also add an outline and shadow to text, adjust the text opacity, and in 1 click make text all uppercase. LogoMaker.com editor is much simpler. You can change solid colors and font sizes and color (no shadow or outline) and orientation of icon and text. The icon suggestions could be better on DesignEvo. I find that LogoMaker gives me better ideas for logo icons. In fact, it appears they pick images that may correspond to the words in the business name.

See for yourself. Here are to screen shots from each design tool. You’ll find hundreds if not thousands of options on each site, so by all means, check them out for yourself. This is no way meant to be comprehensive.
