TOP TIPS BEFORE YOU START DESIGNING A LOGO FOR FREE

  • Make sure the visual arrangement and composition of all the elements of your logo are balanced so it is easy to get it printed on different surfaces.
  • Drawing raw sketches of your initial logo ideas is a great way to see what options you may have.
  • Remember a logo does not necessarily need to comply with a specific form. Be creative.
  • Layout different colours and textures. You may find interesting perspectives.
  • Map out some child versions of your company logo and brand logos. Do they create a nice formation or pattern? if putting them together?
  • There is no specific method or methodology to get a catchy logo, icon or brand name.
  • Some free online logo design tools will help you sketch or model your logo ideas.
  • Your logo may be pictured with your competitors’ logos on other websites, online or printed publications. Does your new free logo stand out?
  • Plan the amount of time dedicated to creating a free logo. Sometimes the idea of designing a logo by yourself may take away precious time out of your calendar.
  • Make sure you include a “How to Use our Logo” section into a “Branding Guidelines” document. So, employees, partners or media know how to use it and know what’s permitted. You may want to outline some “bad usage” examples.
