Whether you are looking to design your logo or hire a graphic designer, you need to have some idea of what you want and why you want it that way. If you can’t explain your vision, how could you convey that to a designer? Your logo will be the basis for everything else that you design for marketing and advertising. Your logo should stand out enough to work and be recognized on its own, but also be designed so that it can blend in with various assets.
Will your logo look good digitally as well as on physical objects? You you put your logo on a shirt? Will it look good driving down the road on the side of a vehicle?
There’s a lot to think about, but don’t worry there’s tons of websites out there to help you along the way.
So let’s take a look at a few of my favorites…some of these are seriously just for fun, and others will really help you to create your own unique logo or at the very least generate some ideas about what you like and what you do not like.
Not just for Hipsters, and your name, some shapes and bamb…you have a hip cool logo.
So these designs are somewhat generic, however, they can give you a good idea of what you like and do not like. In this image I like the use of the two font styles together with a little bubble of clean ontop.
The cost here starts at $20, but if you really like what you get then the $65 price tag would be worth the extras. They also offer professional one-on-one design services for a very resonable price.
I really like the ease of use of this tool…if I could use Photoshop or had an eye for actual design I would go that route, but this tool makes you feel like you have the power by providing simple icons and guiding you through the steps.
This tool is really quite generic, but upon browsing I see a Font that I really like…so still a good idea generator.
So there you have it… 7 tools to get your creative juices flowing…and seriously if you have no creative juices, when it comes to the design process, you can at the very least weed through things that you like and don’t like so that when you do enlist a designer, your input will give the designer the basis of a logo you can fall in love with.
