When you introduce yourself and your company to a prospective client, they will see two things. You, as a person, and how you represent your business, and your brand’s image. That includes all the logos, graphics and other designs you share with them. Before, you had to hire a graphic designer to take care of these things, and it generally turned out to be a lengthy and costly endeavor. But not anymore. Now, the same way you can design your own website, you can also design your own logo, without being a professional.
Wix’s Logo Maker is one such tool that will help you design a pretty looking logo in just a few minutes. Wix is a company that already offers website templates and easy to do it yourself interfaces to build your online presence. You can create your own website really easily, and even add things such as a calendar to book your services, or an online payment platform. Once your website is ready and you know the color pallet you are going to use, you can use the Logo Maker tool to make your logo.
Again, no specific skills are required, as the Logo Maker has you covered, and will take you step by step through the logo creation process.
First, start designing your logo by telling the Logo Maker the name of your business or organization. You can also add a short tag line if you wish to. That will show on your logo, so it all depends on your taste. We started making a logo for the Savvy Scot website, so we added “Personal Finance Made Easy” as a tag line.
Then the Logo Maker tool asks you what your business is about. There is an extensive list of possible answers, and you can browse through it by entering a keyword or two. It is so detailed that when we entered blog, we were presented with a whole list of different blog genres, from book review to travel, and picked business blog. That will help the Logo Maker tool define a style of logo that best suits the business.
To help refine our search even more, we are now asked to define our business or brand with a few adjectives, such as techy, fresh, playful or modern. Pick whatever best represents you and how you want to look in the eyes of a potential client.
The last question Wix’s Logo Maker is going to ask you is more personal. It will present you with a choice of different logo designs, and you will have to say whether you like these logos or not. This will be useful for the Logo Maker tool to start preparing a logo that is visually pleasant for your personal sense of aesthetics. It will display half a dozen logos, and you can click like and dislike every time.
Are you ready? Just a few more seconds, and Wix’s Logo Maker comes back to you with a selection of beautiful custom logo designs. There are so many it is actually quite hard to pick one. Don’t worry! You don’t have to decide just yet. Just chose the one that is the most appealing, and then, you will be able to edit it as you please. For example, you can have the font of the first logo, with the colors of the second one, and the icon of the third one. Everything is really easy to customize in the next step.
Once you have picked the logo that is the closest to your perfect logo, Wix’s Logo Maker lets you make all the edits to make it 100% perfect. You can change the icon, or decide not to display any icon at all. If you look through the extensive icon database, you can input a keyword and be presented with an array of different icons that represent what you looked for. Then you can make the icon bigger or smaller in proportion to the text.
You can also adjust the color and opacity, and where the text is going to show. The icon could be on the side, on top, or at the bottom. And if it is on the side, the text can be adjusted the same way, to show up as high or low as you wish. You can make the text bigger, change the font, and so on. Most importantly, once your logo is ready, you can make it exactly the color of your website’s theme.
When you start a business, you are often looking for ways to save money at the beginning. That doesn’t mean you have to forego having a nice brand image and logo. By using Wix’s Logo maker, you can make your own logo design in just a few minutes, upload it to your website, print it on your business cards and letterhead paper, and show a professional image to your existing and potential clients.
