Writing and sharing everything on a blog has been a whole new experience for me. I had no idea when I started this journey, how to build and set up a website so I am pretty proud of what I have so far achieved. The logo I have always used was set up for me with help from a friend and although I love it, the time has come to set up my own personal logo.
I have had a search on the internet and they all seemed so complicated but a friend recommended a company called Logojoy
I had no idea how to design a logo but I do appreciate that its pretty important to get it correct so people understand what message you are trying to get across.
I took my friends advise and myself and Dylan (my 8-year-old son) logged onto logojoy and we both really enjoyed setting it up and choosing the logo. It was so simple to do he could have done it by himself but I may have ended up with a minecraft type logo! The following is a rough guide to how it works,
How to design a logo with Logojoy
1. First, enter your business or company name.
2. Next, choose 5+ logos you like from the selection shown. There are different colours and different fonts.
3. Choose a colour scheme. Whatever your favourite colour, you will find it and specific shades of it too.
4. Add a slogan if you like. You don’t have to.
5. Pick an icon/image. So many to choose from that I would never of found myself. Again you don’t have to pick one if you prefer not.
6. This is the exciting bit when logos are generated and you get to choose your favourite. It was difficult to pick as all were lovely.
Simple to use
So simple to use my 8 year old could do it. Saves so much money. If you had a professional designer do this it would cost alot more and you can play around with it till you get the perfect design.
You can also ask for help and advise at any point and the people I dealt with all seemed really lovely and most importantly patient.
If you are happy with your logo the cheapest option is $20 to download one image. If you want higher quality images with colour variations and a range of different formats (eps, pdf, png and svg) you’ll need to choose the $65 deal. This premium package also gives you full copyright to the logo for commercial and non-commercial use. You can also download brand guidelines which is a resource with full fonts and colours so you can maintain brand consistency on your website and in any printed text.
I will be sharing the end results on my website and blog very soon. Just need to get my chief designer (Dylan) to add some last-minute touches. Can’t wait to share it with you all.
