How To Make A Blog Logo
Hello everyone. When I first started blogging years ago I didn’t know how to make a blog logo and didn’t pay too much attention to how my blog looked. Nor did I consider how the look of my blog tied in with my other social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. However it’s a fact that having a recognisable image across all these platforms can help make a blog look more professional. It can also make it easier for readers to find and follow bloggers across the different platforms.
Even when I realised their importance I still didn’t know how to make a blog logo properly. I have therefore had some rather dodgy ones in the past. Recently I decided to update the look of my blog. One of the sites I looked at to help with the new logo was Logojoy. Logojoy is a site that uses artificial intelligence to help people generate beautiful logos for their businesses or blogs.
How to make a blog logo using Logojoy
The Logojoy site is very easy to navigate. The first page asked for my blog name. I was then directed to a page with a range of different logo designs. Logojoy asked me to pick 5 different logos that I particularly like. This allowed the artificial intelligence system to understand my preferences in order to later generate logo ideas specific for me. On further pages I was asked for colour preferences and which symbols I liked.
These choices were all used to generate a series of possible logo options. From these options I chose one I particularly liked to further customise. In the customisation view I was able to alter the colour of the background, text and symbol, change the size and spacing of the font and alter the layout of the logo. I have to confess I went a bit mad with the gold-leaf option, at one point I had gold leaf writing and symbol on a gold leaf background. That is too much bling for anyone.
In the end this is the design I went with.
once I had finalised my design I went to pay for it. Logojoy has 2 options that would have been suitable for me. The basic option let you download just one low resolution image. I went for the premium package that let me download 4 different high resolution options of my logo.
I could have had my logo in gold with a transparent background.
Dark logo with a transparent background.
Or white with a transparent background (which I will not show you here for obvious reasons).
The cost of the premium package is $65 which works out at around £60. The basic package is just $20.
Would I recommend Logojoy?
I found the Logojoy site very easy to navigate. The choice of symbols was a little limited and I was disappointed that I couldn’t combine two symbols on the logo (there was a crochet hook symbol available). I think this is a great site for people who are just starting off their blogging or business and are after a simple easy to navigate logo service.
Have you used a site like Logojoy to design a blog logo? Would you consider using one in the future?
