How to create your logo easily
Nowadays we are conditioned by our limitation when creating graphic content for our projects. However, there is a crucial question that cannot be ignored: we need a professional logo that identify us faithfully.
We have to be aware that our logo is the visiting card or our business.
It is very probable that our logo is included in an event, advertising space, blog, etc., when our company is mentioned, since it is the most direct representative. The logo is the responsible for communicating itself all the philosophy, personality and history (if any) our company. In addition, it must be readable in different sizes, backgrounds in which it is placed, etc.
There are different ways to obtain your logo. They can be classified in 4 groups, from the most expensive to the most affordable one:
- Contacting a professional designer: the user will obtain a high-quality and exclusive logo that never goes out of style. Of course, this is the most expensive option and its price will vary depending on the graphic design study.
- Creating your own logo by paying for an online design tool: This is the most suitable option for those people with good aesthetic taste and enough time to dedicate to the design process, but without knowledge in graphic programmes.
- Buying a low-cost online logo which has been already designed. This is the option with which you can get a good logo without having to pay too much.
- Designing a logo oneself with a free online tool: you will get a logo with a lower quality and it will depend largely on the tool used and your imagination to create your design.
If you are reading this post is because, surely, you are specially interested in the third or fourth option: you either don’t have enough money and enough time to create your logo or you have enough time but not enough money.
Searching on the web and testing different online tools, we have realized that there are too many free logo creation websites, but the result is really poor. In our opinion, it is not possible to create high-quality logos for free.
We have to think about a logo that last for many years. In case of wanting a logo for our brand which is already designed, we should pay for it. At the end, it is worthy to shell out money to have a high-quality result.
The logo must not be underestimated since it is the pivot on which all the designs of our brand turns ( visit card, billings, web, etc.), and it has been said before, it is our “representative” everywhere.
Zeendo has wanted to select the most online options according to its quality.

Finally, we will talk about websites serving as inspiration for creating logos.
