When you are starting an online or offline business the first thing comes to play is getting a visually appealing logo to make an everlasting impression on customers. Surely it’s best to consult a professional graphics designer but it will cost an average of $200 and may take up to 1-week depending various factors. So, if you are in a hurry and have a limited budget, go for online logo designing software like Designevo.
What is Designevo?
Designevo was launched as a completely free product by online photo editing software company Fotojet later they introduced two premium plans. I’ll share the details of the premium plans details later on. There are several free and premium logo making software available online but they are mostly limited to a couple of hundreds of ready to use templates. But with Designevo you have the option to choose from more than 4000 pre-made designs classified according to the niche. Also if you want to get creative they offer an option to start from scratch.
Start Designing a Logo
Unlike most of the online logo designing websites, Designevo team have developed a very easy to use workflow. Navigate to their homepage and click on “Make a Free Logo” it will take you directly to the template browser. Search for the category that best describes your business in the “Search Templates” or click on “Start from Scratch”.
If you have chosen any of the available templates it will prompt you for the company name and tagline but you can skip it and modify later on. Then you will be redirected to the customization dashboard featuring all the modification options like font, shapes, and icons. Also, this panel has a preview option to get an idea how your logo will look like in various printed and online media. This feature makes Designevo standout from the crowd, I’ve seen this only in a couple of websites where the preview only limited to business cards.
The customization panel also has a background color, layout management and logo downloading option. Though there is a save option it will only work after you register an account. On the download page, they have all the packages listed as well as a free plan. The free plan will not require any charges but to download the logo you will need to share about Designvo on your social media, blog or website.
Logo designing dashboard has a large collection of icons, shapes, and text styles. According to Designevo, they actually have nearly a million of icons designed by professionals to choose from. Search anything in the icon search panel and it will not disappoint you.
Now comes the turn of text styling, in the text tab they have more than 100 classic and word art styles with font size, color, effects and formatting controls. The word arts may seem like they fixed text styles but you can select an art and change font without losing the effects.
Apart from the icons Designevo also offers a unique collection of shapes categorized into seven different groups to decorate the logos further. These icons come very handily when you are designing a logo for an event.
