How to Create a Logo
Brand experts say to keep it simple and instead of a fancy logo, focus on creating a wordmark logo where you concentrate on using your business name as the logo.
There are several logo creators online and I’ll show you more to choose from at the end of this article. Many of them let you build your logo for free or low cost to download.
I’ll walk you through creating your logo using GraphicSprings
Go to their site and click ‘Create a logo in a Minute or Less’ to get started.
On this screen, enter your business name and tagline if you have one and then click next.
From here you can search for an image that you want to go with your logo. This is completely optional. If you read the article above, Pam Wilson says to keep it simple and just use your words with a great typeface and character spacing. For this tutorial I’ll add one just to show you how easy it is.
When we’re finished with that, we have a basic logo to work with.
Now if you click on the business name you have several editing options to choose from, including the font, character spacing, text color, and some text effects like shadow.
When you’re finished, you can see what your logo will look like on a t-shirt, stationary, and the web. You can even share the preview to get other people’s opinion.
If you like the logo, you can buy the logo for less than $40 and you’ll get the files immediately after completing your purchase.
Once you download your files, you can edit them to make it the right size for your WordPress theme, send it to your printer for business cards, and get t-shirts made.
