10 Best Online Logo Maker Websites

Most online Logo maker websites offer services for FREE, except for a few exceptions. Paid Logo-making service will be needed when you want something very specific – which you CANNOT create on your own in any of the free Logo-making services. Before I give you a list of 10 best online Logo-making websites, here are a few tips:

  1. Logo is a symbol to help the public to recognize your company/start-up; therefore, keep the Logo visually simple
  2. Try including a simple symbol that reflects the core activity of your business
  3. Avoid using complicated font-style which may not be available in the future…15 years down the line
  4. Make sure your logo is recognizable even in a small size
  5. You can customise your Logo (paid service) after self-creating it in some of the Logo-making sites below.
  6. For the Logo use either Text-only or Text with image (see the 2 examples below)

Best Online Logo Maker Websites

 

1 – Free Logo creator: Shopify

This is a very popular site to create free Logo for your blog, website or even your offline business. The moment you open Shopify you are ready to start designing your Logo on the blank screen. It is 100% intuitive and hardly needs any explanations. Play around with the tools to get the Logo of your choice, for your business. The Logos you create here are kind of 2-D and cartoonish.

The site will send the Logo to your email Inbox &even after that you can continue to edit your Logo.

Logo-making tools:

  • Endless list of black-&-white icons
  • Icon size, frame, and color
  • Font color and font type only

Demerits:

  • Icons are very general ones and are not categorized at all (possibly many of these general icons are already used by your rivals or any other companies)
  • The Font list is very limited and does not include any common Windows fonts we all are used to (the problem with using a rare font is that you don’t have access to the font-file; therefore, you cannot modify your Logo later on using the same font)
