A good logo can instantly add value to your brand. But creating a good logo through desktop apps such as Photoshop can be a difficult and time consuming process. Moreover you need to familiarize yourself with the desktop app before you can exploit its best features. Thankfully the case is quite different with web apps because they are easy to use and offer a greater degree of user-friendliness.
For readers looking to create a logo using a web app, I have collected 7 of the best web apps for the job. Check them all out below and see which ones suit your needs best.
LogoEase is a free to use website that lets you create logos with ease. You start off by clicking the “Start Your Logo” icon in the site toolbar, choose a category that best suits your needs, select a logo type and logo icon. You can add custom text, select fonts, scale the logo items, fill in the colors and much more. Once created, you can simply download the logo file in a zip format and use it on your website or blog. One good thing about this service is that you don’t have to create an account in order to use the service. However, I do advise you to create an account as it allows you to manage the logos that you have created.
Just like LogoEase, LogoMaker is another web service that lets you create and download logos. The site lets you pick a logo category, a logo icon, and customize the text and colors. You can select multiple objects, rotate the items on your logo, and resize them. The site lets you download up to 6 logo images for free. In addition to that, users can purchase high resolution files from LogoMaker which can be used in logos, business cards, posters etc. If you think that there is a specific category which is not present in the list, you can always drop an email to LogoMaker and they will add it for you if its possible.
CoolText is a highly useful log creator that is extremely simple to use. It lets you design logos by selecting from a list of fonts. You can modify the text of the logo and then select the colors which you would like incorporated into the logo. You can then proceed to download the logo in a variety of image formats include PNG, JPG, and GIF. You can even design buttons for your sites and download different fonts from a massive list. It might not come with a wide range of features as Logoease and LogoMaker, but it can be a good alternative if you are looking for a simple logo.
FlamingText is a wonderful logo creation website with which you can start by using the existing template. Once you have selected a logo design, you can modify numerous properties specific to the logo type you selected. These options usually include the font, the text, color, and transparency. FlamingText does not only provide logo creation services but you can also create buttons, download fonts and cliparts, edit images using FlamingText’s editor and much more.
5. LogoYes Logo Creator
LogoYes Logo Creator is a wonderful site that offers numerous logo creation features. Being very simple to use, the site lets you start by specifying a logo category and then selecting a logo type. Afterwards you can add text to your logo and edit its font. A helpful grid lets you accurately position the items in your logo. Once you are done with the logo, you can purchase it off the site. One drawback of the service is that if you want to download the logo, you must pay to get the high resolution files. You can even create your business cards by completing two additional steps once you have created your logo.
LogoSnap is yet another online logo creation tool that majorly helps creating the logo you desire. You can simply start by selecting a logo category and then proceed to customize the text and colors on it according to your needs and preferences. Other features of the editing interface include resizing items, rotating them, and magnifying. If you dont want to design the logo yourself or you think that you might not create an attractive logo, you can get it designed from LogoSnap (through Mycroburst service) as well and pay accordingly.
7. Online Logo Maker
Online Logo Maker is an excellent logo maker choice. The app lets you select and customize logos to use in your projects. Featuring a user-friendly interface, the app still manages to be feature-rich. If you like the service, you can signup for a premium plan as well which will give you access to many new symbols, fonts, email support and much more. However, I don’t think its worth spending money to buy the account if you are not a designing pro. If you are just an amateur like me and want to get a good logo, you can just hire someone rather than spending money on something you will not be able to use. But this doesn’t mean that the service is not good, it depends on how you make use of it.
