How To Create A Logo For Your Brand In 5 Minutes (No Graphic Skills Needed)
I actually didn’t create a logo for LadyBossBlogger at the beginning for two reasons.
- It was too hard to create.
- It was too expensive to hire someone.
So I created a badge instead (pictured below). However, if I had known about the free tool, DesignEvo, I definitely would have made one!
How To Use DesignEvo To Design Your First Logo
A logo, in a way, sets the tone of your brand. It’s also the base for every aesthetic thing that comes after it. The colors you choose for your logo should carry an effect on the color palette you choose. Your logo’s font and format also set a mood for your blog’s brand and content.
Thankfully, DesignEvo makes the important process of crafting a logo a lot easier and cheaper, which is a huge plus!
Let’s dive into the specifics of how to design your first logo… no graphic design experience necessary!
Ask yourself: “What am I trying to convey?”
Minimalism may not be for everyone, but it’s important when it comes to logos! Simple is memorable.
Also make sure your logo looks good on colored backgrounds, white backgrounds, and transparent backgrounds to ensure it’s versatile for any and all situations.
Design Tips For The 12 Most Profitable Niches
If you don’t know what niches I am talking about or what niches are profitable, then read this post first.
- Go to DesignEvo.
- Click on “Make A Free Logo”.
- Pick a category or enter your own idea in the search bar (thankfully, most of them correlate with each of the 12 most profitable niches).
- Choose a template.
- Design your logo.
- Save or download your amazing work of art!
To use it for free, you have to credit DesignEvo. If you don’t want to give credit, there are affordable Basic and Plus options you can use!
1. Fitness and Weight Loss
For this niche the “Sports & Fitness” category makes the most sense. When choosing categories, however, remember to look for the template that works best for you and your blog’s brand. So if that means getting creative with another category, do it!
As you create your logo, think about this:
- Is there a specific sport or activity I’ll be writing about?
- Will I focus on outdoor fitness or staying in shape at the gym?
- Is my audience middle aged women, women in their early 20s or a broader audience? Women just starting to exercise, or women who are serious about improving their weight lifting skills?
Your target audience must affect what kind of template you choose, and your overall design should appeal to them.
Health can be tricky because of all the subcategories that belong under it. From gluten-free eating to controlling diabetes, this broad niche requires clear and intentional focus from the start. This will be invaluable for choosing colors, fonts, and icons.
Because this niche is so broad, you can look in a variety of categories this time. I chose a template from the “Food and Drink” category to design my cuisine-centered student eating blog.
3. Dating and Relationships
This is such a fun topic when it comes to designing your logo!
As you look through the categories, you’ll find that this niche doesn’t fit as sternly into a pre-made category. So I took the liberty to enter “love” into the search bar. You can do the same or search something related to your writing topic.
As you devise a plan for this logo, be sure to consider at least these few questions.
- What are you writing about? Pets’ health? Training tips? Pet accessories? The best diets for your furry (or slimy) friend?
- What is your audience curious about or drawn to?
Thankfully, DesignEvo has the perfect category for pet owners: “Animal & Pet.” However, there were quite a few animals in that section that weren’t pet material, so I typed “Pet” in the search bar instead, which gave me better options to choose from.
But because I was looking up fish as pets, I found what I was looking for in the “Food and Drink” category.
Because this niche has so many sub-niches (such as language learning, empowerment, personal growth, and so much more), it’s important to get specific!
This niche doesn’t have a go-to category in DesignEvo, so you may want to try out the “Lifestyle” category. “Childcare & Education” could also work because of the educational and intellectual direction a lot of blogs in this niche drift toward!
6. Making Money Online
The logical category here is “Business & Finance,” but think outside the box a little. While this can be a “professional topic,” don’t be afraid to have fun with it!
I decided to create a design of my own, since I couldn’t find anything I liked. All I did was go to the left side menu and click on Shape -> Decoration for the leaf wreath.
This is a great niche. Especially because you can inflect your personality and gift for aestheticism into designing your logo!
Here are some guidelines and things to consider:
- Be sure to make your logo visually stunning! This seems obvious, but your logo is, in a sense, a symbol of what you stand for. Because you’ll be writing about all things beautiful, make sure your logo reflects this from the first glance.
- Beautiful doesn’t equal messy. Simplicity is still key! Extra adornments are still not the best idea.
- Don’t forget to ask yourself, as always, what exactly you’re writing about. Hair and makeup? Proper skincare? Narrow down your sub niche, and your target audience will be narrowed down as well!
A good category for templates that match this niche is “Fashion and Beauty”.
8. Gadgets & Technology
Since this is your niche, you’ve probably got all the technical details figured out when it comes to designing your logo! Or perhaps have your own resources you know about and use. Or maybe you dabble with a different type of ‘tech’ in which case ask yourself these questions:
- What specifically do I write about, and what is my stance on it? There are so many different topics within “Gadgets and Technology,” such as artificial intelligence, DSLR cameras, cybernetics, and the list goes on endlessly. But more importantly, find out what you believe about the topic you’re writing about.
- Does my logo accurately represent what I stand for? While more slanted, cursive texts work well for niches like beauty, fashion and relationships, it’s best to keep everything clean, and preferably sans serif for your font.
A good DesignEvo category to start off with is “Technology & Communication.”
Children are energetic and vibrant and you want to mirror this in your logo! This is definitely one of the most fun, spirited niches for creating a logo.
As you design, ask yourself:
- What specifically does my audience care about?
- Do I write about a certain age group? Toddlers? Older kids?
- Do I want to write about specific activities? For example, do I focus on sports, artistic hobbies or simply on parenting tips for healthy children?
A good category for this niche is “Childcare & Education.”
Since you have a knack for arranging and creating, you’ll have no trouble designing this logo for your blog!
As you design consider this:
- Know your style. As a fashion guru, you know how important it is to find your own individual, consistent style.
- Once you know your style, build your logo off of it.
Start in the “Fashion & Beauty” category to find a template that works.
As you embark on the adventure of creating a logo as daring as your explorations and your blog, ask yourself these questions to narrow down.
- Is there a country or area of the world I’ve chose to focus on?
- What does my brand aesthetic look like? Do I want to create a more rustic, earthy symbol; or do I write about the best hotels and cruise ships?
“Travel & Hotel” is a logical category for you that has plenty of stunning designs.
This is it, the last of the niches. As you design your logo, consider this.
- Within the Lifestyle niche, it’s invaluable to have your interest in mind. This niche has the most variety in sub-niches to choose from. In order to have a logo that falls in sync with your purpose, you need to have your passion narrowed down.
Thankfully, there is a “Lifestyle” category on DesignEvo to help you out!
Or select “Letter” and make a logo with your initials if your blog is named after yourself.
And there you have it! I want to see the logos you come up with! Comment with a link to them in the comments. 🙂
Can’t wait to see your logo soon!
