1) LogoMakr

LogoMakr is a free platform which allows you to design and create your own logo online for free.

You have the option to select the fonts and icons available.

With LogoMakr you won't receive any logo templates, so everything will be designed from scratch, which is good if you're really creative.

Logos are free to download with LogoMakr, at a lower resolution, provided you give proper credits on your website.

I personally have a "Credits" page where I have my credits listed, and I keep this on the sidebar so it's visible on the blog. 

If you would like to have your logo at a higher resolution and on merchandise other than your website, then you may need to pay for your logo to have specific requirements.

2) LogoJoy

LogoJoy is a free and easy logo building tool which will have template designs for you in just a few minutes. 

Using a few prompts from the site, you'll be able to select from a range of different sample designs. 

It's a great way to design a logo when you don't have an idea where to start.

Note: You need to create an account to view your new logos. 

3) LogoPony

Similar to other sites listed here, LogoPony allows you to create logos within minutes.

With the help of their easy to use platform, all you need to do is enter a few quick details about your business and you can get a range of logo templates to edit and customise your way. 

Although you can edit and customise your logo for free, you will need to pay a fee in order to download it.

4) Hatchful by Shopify

Hatchful is a logo design site linked with Shopify.

If you're familiar with Shopify, then you'll know that it's an eCommerce site, and one of the features necessary for any eCommerce is to have a logo. 

As a result, Shopify has introduced a logo maker to help you get a logo for your site in just a few short minutes.

It's super simple to use and the site is able to generate a range of different options. 

Once you've created your design, then you can receive your new logos via email.

5) Canva

If you're in the blogging world, then chances are you've heard all about Canva. 

Canva is an online graphics design website, which allows users to create a range of different graphics, from flyers to business cards, from logos to social media posts. 

It's a great all-round platform for any quick graphics design projects. 

But not only that, it's also a very useful tool for being able to create your own logo online. 

You're able to select from a range of logo design templates, and you have the opportunity to customise them the way you wish. 

Once you've created your logo, be sure to download it as a transparent file, so you can have it available for use on other merchandise. 

BONUS: Tailor Brands

As a bonus for making it to the end of this list, I wanted to share an additional tried and tested tool to help you create your own logo online. 

Tailor Brands is another great tool for you to create, design and customise a logo for your website, blog and/or brand. 

With their easy to follow steps, you can have a high-quality logo within minutes. 

However, it's important to note that there is a price for this quality, and you would need to pay at least £2.50/month (billed annually), in order to download any of the logo designs generated.

If it's something you are able to invest in, then I believe it's one of the best, quality, logo makers online. 

3 Things To Consider When Creating A Logo

1) Choosing A Colour Scheme

It’s important to know your colour scheme before creating your logo so that the colours you choose, run throughout your brand.

If you’re not sure what colour scheme to go for, there are online tools that allow you to generate different colour schemes. 

I personally use Coolors.co (it’s FREE), which can automatically generate different colour schemes for your brand.

Also, this blog post on colour psychology was super helpful to me too.

2) Style

What style are you going for?

Minimalist?...

Feminine?...

Bold?...

These are things you might want to consider when choosing what fonts and colours to use, or even what logo designer to go for. 

3) Simplicity Is Key

You don’t need to make your logo too complicated. Sometimes the most simple logos are the most effective.

Just think of the Apple logo as an example.

Final Thoughts

Creating a logo doesn't need to be hard...or expensive.

I've listed a solid selection of affordable logo design tools, which means there's no excuse for you not to have a logo for your blog/business. 

Ultimately, I hope you've found these tools useful, and hope you've gained a new perspective on the importance of having a logo for yourself, as well as tips to help you successfully create your own logo online.

I’ve been wanting to create another logo for my blog and everyone I ask has been telling me to use Canva but I just don’t like it. I think I will try one of the others that you suggested.

I’ve used LogoMakr in the past and really did like it. You know I have been using Canva for quite some time and never even thought of using it for logo design? Does this come with the free version of Canva or do you need to use the paid version?

Also, with Canva have you used the paid version yet? I was thinking about signing up but haven’t yet.

    Hi Garen, thanks for joining the discussion. Glad to hear you liked your logo from LogoMakr. My logo is also with LogoMakr, it’s a really good tool!

    Yes, you can create a logo with the free version.

    I personally have the paid version of Canva, it’s a lot easier to work with as you have all your fonts and brand colours saved, which makes creating images a lot quicker. Also, you can easily resize your images, for example, you can resize from Pinterest to a Facebook post, without having to create 2 separate images from scratch.

    I feel it has a lot benefits, but the free version is still really awesome!

As a blogger, I have seen a logo really make a difference with my readers. It separates you from the crowd. When you make a logo, you start a brand, something that will really set you up for the long run.

I know that this article is about creating a logo yourself, but I think it is important to mention Fiverr. They are a great place to get a logo done. I did it for my site and it was very professional for a reasonable price.

Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

    Hi Alex, thanks for joining the discussion. I agree, a logo definitely makes a difference.

    Yes, Fiverr is a good option for creating a logo, however, my focus here was on “tried and tested” methods. So I wanted to share tools I’ve personally used myself. But thanks for the suggestion, and glad to hear you were happy with your logo. All the best!

Hello Stephanie, great review. I have created my own site logo by using Free Logo Services. I am also aware of Canva, as I have read about it in this Marketing Business Ebook that I am reading. I use Canva to upload posts on Instagram that stands out from all of the rest. Whenever I start to make another website, I will use one of these platforms. Thanks again, and I wish you all of the success in the world!!!

Hi Stephanie, thanks for sharing this info. I will definitely be checking out these tools. I recently got one done from Fiverr. I wasn’t too pleased with the whole process. Too much back and forth. It’s best I learn how to do this my self. Thanks for this info.

Regards
Court
