You might be thinking, what kind of logo do I want? What is the right logo for my business? Or you may never have done this before, you may also be thinking, “I can’t draw at all!” Well firstly, you don’t need to draw as everything is already here for you. It’s already drawn up and ready to use! Think about your target market, your audience. For example, if you have a technology website, you might want something along the lines which attracts that market. Or, if you’re in the beauty industry, you’d want something completely different that would attract a different audience. Try to think outside the box and be creative. Play around with the text of your business name, or use the name to reflect the logo itself.
It’s important to get your logo right so don’t rush it! But, you can use LogoMakr.com and my advice to create the logo you like quickly and easy!
So, you’ll see the area where you design your logo. On the left you have a sidebar with options that let you add different shapes, text and color, as well as an undo button if you’d like to undo something you’ve just done! On the right you have a color wheel with millions of different colors to choose from, you can change the color of shapes, text, as well as the images.
To browse images just search by typing what you would like in the search area, and you’ll see the results come up. Or you can click to view all images and get inspired about your logo! When you see an image you like just click it and it will be placed in your designing area.
You can resize it using the handles around the image, as small or as large as you’d like and you can rotate it. You can change the image’s color using the color wheel. To add text, just click on the text icon and start typing. To change the text font select the text you want to change and above is where you select the style of font you’d like to use. You can then browse the huge amount of available fonts!
Remember if you do something wrong and you want to go back to how it was before, just use the undo button, and this will take you back to how it was!

So, here’s another tip for you.. If you find an image you want to use but it isn’t quite right, I can help you solve this problem! For example, if you have an image of a laptop that is all black and you’d like it to have a white screen; I can just use a shape to add the white screen on top of the image. All I would do is add a square and make it into a rectangle by grabbing the edges and taking them out. I’ll make it white and drag it on top of the image. Easy!
Another useful tip to remember is that you can layer your images on top of one another. So, if we have two images, and I right click on one of them and choose send to back, it will be placed behind the other. This can be very useful when arranging different elements to create your logo!
Another example is with text. If you want to create a shadow or 3d effect, you can use Send To Back or Send Backwards to create a shadow, using a duplicate of any text, making it darker, putting it in place, and now you have a nice looking shadow effect!
Once you have designed your brand new logo, all you do is click on Save. You can do this by right clicking your logo and then click on save. LogoMakr notifies you if you need to leave credit to the authors of any images you have used, and to which author you need to leave credit.
The possibilities available with LogoMakr.com are endless and with some creativeness and thought into your audience you can come up with a great looking, extremely effective logo!
