Design Your Business Logo Yourself

Shalom Solomon

Logos on their own are a huge important part of a business' brand. They, along with the business name, constitute the brand identity of a business.
Logo design, is the process of creating logos, using components such as the brand values, shapes, colour, font style and logo type. 
Now, designing a logo can be expensive especially, if you employ the services of a professional. 

According to Damilare, a Branding Specialist in Nigeria, professional logo design would cost at least 200,000 with a maximum of millions. 
Well, this amount is acceptable for established businesses or startups with high capital. 
For small businesses owners or startups who do not have that level of income, how do you go about designing your logo?

Well, you could take a course on graphic design and digital marketing, but that would take an awful long time to complete. There's an easy   alternative, logo design tools. There are free logo design makers, online that would enable you create and design your business logo with minimal effort. Some of them require a little amount before download and some are totally free from start to finish.
Below, we'd examine some of these tools and their basic features.
