How to Create a Unique Logo Design in 60 Seconds with Designhill
Branding is incredibly important. This is true whether you are running a multinational mega-corporation like Coca-Cola or you’re just a “small time” blogger in some corner of the Internet. You need a recognizable brand that represents what you stand for and what you offer, and this starts with having a logo. And yes, bloggers need to have logos too, because just having your site name sprawled across the top of the default WordPress theme isn’t going to cut it if you want to be taken seriously.
Generate Beautiful Logos Within Seconds
If hiring some high-end design agency is beyond your budget, as would be the case with the vast majority of bloggers, that doesn’t mean you’re without hope. In fact, thanks to amazing advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, you can have a brand new logo (or ten) in a matter of moments with the DesignHill logo maker tool. And it costs you nothing to try it out.
The logo maker is AI-powered and you run through the process through an easy-to-follow, step-by-step wizard. It starts simply with entering your company name. In this case, that’d be the name of your blog, but it could just as easily apply to practically any company.
From there, the wizard can ascertain the general style or approach you want to take for your logo. You can pick five or more design styles from the resulting page. Some are a little more traditional, some are a little more modern, some are a little more complex and so forth. Don’t worry about the colors so much and just focus on the actual designs themselves.
That’s because, on the next page, you’ll have the opportunity to select up to three colors that you’d like to see explored in your logo designs. When you pick “blue,” that doesn’t just give you access to one particular shade of blue, but rather the whole range of blues. The same is true with orange, green, pink and so forth. Keep in mind that just because you pick three colors doesn’t mean all three colors will be included in the final design; it just means these are the colors that may be considered.
Slogans, Categories, Symbols…
Progressing through the AI-powered logo maker tool, the next page will ask you to provide your company name (the field will be pre-populated with what you entered in the first step, but you can adjust it here if you’d like), as well as an optional slogan (which will typically be displayed as a smaller font in the generated logo designs; leave this out if you don’t want to have your slogan in the logo) and your company industry or category.
For the purposes of this example, I went through the process of creating a logo for this blog, ZacJohnson.com. The slogan isn’t really official, but I wanted to see what it would look like in the logo. For the industry, I picked “Business & Consulting.” Some relevant alternatives included Internet, Technology or even the more generic Company. This does impact the kinds of designs that result.
For the next step, you’ll get to pick up to five symbols that may also be integrated as part of the proposed logo designs. Not all the logo designs will feature one of the symbols you select — they may be text only — but a symbol can add a little dash of visual personality. There are lots and lots of symbols here, and you simply start by entering a search term in the provided field.
In this example, I chose some money symbols, since this blog is about making money from blogging, as well as some “king” or “crown” imagery that’s in line with the image in this blog’s header and throughout ZacJohnson.com branding.
AI Generated Logo Examples
After providing a name and email address, you are then presented with a large variety of proposed logo designs.
You can see how professional and varied these logos look, taking on different shapes and dimensions, as well as trying different fonts for the company name and slogan. The examples near the top of the page here all stuck with the “yellow” color scheme I had selected as one of the options during the design process, but scrolling further down the page revealed many more possibilities.
Something that is also important to highlight here, is that users can keep generating new logo designs simply by clicking on the “load more” button at the bottom of the page. Thanks to the powerful AI-driven logo solution by Designhill, the opportunity to create thousands of unique logos design is now just a click away.
It really depends on the kind of “feel” you are trying to achieve with the logo. I find the blue one in the top-right to give off an air of professionalism while also maintaining a casual approachability. The gold logo in the bottom-left, on the other hand, is perhaps a little more boastful of wealth while having fun doing it, “living my best life” as the kids say these days.
Even with pausing to take some of the screenshots along the way, I was done with the process in under five minutes. I probably could have spent more time going through the huge library of symbols and even after the logos are generated, there is the opportunity to edit the resulting logo to change the name, slogan, colors, symbol, and container, as well as settings for text distance, symbol distance and more.
Once you’ve created a logo design that you are happy with, you can also play around with some ideas on how your logo will look on different printed materials. This is a free visual feature that is built right into the Designhill site and makes the logo design and decision process much easier. Nothing makes your logo and brand come to life, like seeing it on a nice t-shirt, business card or even a sign on the street represented whatever it is you have to offer.
All in all, the design process and ease of use is what’s going to stand out for most people. There are many logo design tools online, but Designhill has done an excellent job with their platform in not only making the process easy, but also in creating logos that people would actually want to use — without needing to shell a lot of money out in the process.
You can take as much time as you want to further customize the logo or you can run through the whole process in under 60 seconds. It’s up to you.
How Much Does It Cost?
Once you are satisfied with the logo, you can proceed with the purchase. There are three main packages offered by DesignHill, all of which are a one-time fee.
The cheapest is the $20 basic package. This gets you only a single basic resolution logo file, which would be appropriate for inclusion in your blog header, for example. The most popular option, however, is the $65 premium package. Instead of the basic resolution file, you get a high-resolution logo, including vector EPS and SVG files, as well as a version with a transparent background.
The higher resolution files, particularly the vector files, make the premium package much more appropriate if you have any plans on using your logo in print materials (like a business card) or even having the higher resolution for branding on social media and beyond. These are print-ready files and you are offered the font names and colors too.
At the top of the range is the enterprise package, which starts at $199. This goes beyond the AI-created logo and opens up the design process to dozens of graphic designers who compete in a logo design contest. The net result is that you get to choose from at least 30 different designs in less than 7 days. This comes with a 100% money back guarantee.
