So, you want a new logo for your start up business or organization and have no idea how to go about it? Or perhaps you want a new logo to go with your re-branding exercise? Well, worry not. There are many ways to get a logo in this day and age. In this article, learn four different ways you can go about this process.
Design your own
For one, you can always design your own logo. You can do this using computer softwares such as Adobe illustrator. You do not have to be an art designer to accomplish this. You can use online tutorials to learn the basics. Then you can slowly put together a logo. Of course, it works better if you have some skills in design, even if it’s just a little bit.
Use free web tools
Another very easy option that you can always use is free logo making websites. Most of these sites are free while others will charge you a small fee to print or download your finished piece. With these, all you have to do is select an abstract image, tweak it to your desired dimensions, add your business name, add fonts and colors, and you’re done. You don’t even need to have any design skills to use these web tools.
Hire a freelancer online
Thirdly, you can outsource your logo work to a freelancer online. The process is simple. You just register on sites like Elance and Freelancer, post your job and wait for skilled freelancers to bid for your work. The process can take a period as short as take 1-3 days. All you have to do is brief the freelancer and they will create a few samples for you to choose from.
Hire a designer
If you take your logo making process very seriously and don’t want to risk the final outcome, you can jump into the process with both feet and hire a designer. You will then work with this designer face-to-face. They will visit your business, get a feel for it, find ideas and start working on drafts. You will supervise the work at set stages and make changes where you see fit.
