When you’re just starting out as an entrepreneur or business owner, you are the epitome of the term “jack of all trades.”
You are the customer service representative, the HR department, the CEO, and everything in between. And now it has come time for you to design your logo!
Even if you’re an established business, maybe it’s time for a rebrand! Whatever the reason, you’re looking to design an amazing logo that will speak to your customers.
We get it! Design is our jam!
That’s why we’ve put together a quick rundown of our favorite DIY design programs. Enjoy!
We don’t like to pick favorites, but… Kidding!!
If you haven’t heard of Canva before or just haven’t had a chance to try it out, do yourself a favor and check it out. Not only does Canva have amazing tools within their free version of the website, it also has tons of templates to choose from!
The templates that Canva offers are customizable and pretty easy to use. If you find that the free version isn’t working for you, they do have premium features as well – for a fee.
Well the name really says it all, doesn’t it?
Like Canva, Logo Maker has thousands of templates to choose from as you design your DIY logo.
Logo Maker really does help streamline the design process if you are looking to get a logo created fast. Their program will take you through 4 easy steps.
Logo Maker also has the option of working with a designer.
Logo design and branding can be tough to get right! You want to make a great impression and an amazing logo certainly helps.

If you’re looking for a very minimal, easy DIY logo design service, Brand Crowd might be for you.
On their website, Brand Crowd allows you to easily search through their semi-customizable designs and see which looks best for your business name! It truly couldn’t get any more simple.
Professional and semi-professional design software can be pretty user friendly. We love all Adobe products and there are alternatives to these as well, such as GIMP or Procreate.
These programs will give you much more freedom over your design, which is truly beneficial as it relates to quality and customization. Many of the free design websites only allow certain export options, which can be a problem down the line.
In most cases, business owners don’t necessarily want to spend time thinking about their brand and design. They want to be working IN their business – doing what they do best!
DIY logo design software can work beautifully for some, but it can miss the mark for others. Give it a try and see how it goes!
We LOVE to geek out about all things branding and design! If you’ve found that DIY just doesn’t work for you, give us a call to chat about a custom logo design and our pricing options.
