How to Choose the Right Logo?

Logo design is about all about personality and how you bring that personality to your consumers. Our website is about helping people to quit their 9 to 5 jobs and creating their online business. We wanted our website to be relatable to our website name and online business. As we made design decisions, we constantly came back to those principles to make sure we were representing our personality correctly.

Let’s say you know what your company is all about. Then it’s time to pick a font, colors and some visual aid which would make your logo more memorable.

First of all, we chose font and colors and our choices were based on our website theme and design. Because our website menu is black and background white we have chosen black and white colors for our logo. Our font chose was based on our menu and title fonts, so it would look the same.

Laptop symbolize online job and money sign means making money online. That is why we chose a laptop with dollar sign inside as our logo. Bellow laptop we just wrote our business name in our chosen font and the dots bellow the name is just to highlight it. This is how the simple idea of creating our logo came up.

    Your logo is very clever and apt for your website. It’s funny, I’ve created a logo for one of my other sites, but am struggling to come up with one for my latest site. Reading this is making me realise that I need to revisit this issue for myself and figure it out. I’ve found using canva did help with my previous logo. Thanks too for showing how to upload it in wordpress customizer. I need these kinds of reminders since once I’ve done something, I tend to set and forget, so when I need to come back to it, I get stuck. I like your Key Points for creating a logo, this will give me a guide to follow. Thanks for sharing your ideas and knowledge on this :).
