Why is a logo important?
A logo is a graphic mark, emblem, or symbol that represents a company or organization.
When you set aside all the design trends and fads, at its core, a logo must:
- Embody your brand
- Be instantly recognizable
- Be versatile
- Be timeless
Every design choice in your logo should exist only to serve and strengthen the four items listed above.
Why do you need a professionally designed logo?
A company logo is a critical part of your brand identity.
Brand identity (everything visual about your company or organization) is the common element that will help your customers remember your business when your customers or prospects see your logo on your website, custom t-shirts, business cards, letterhead, on your social media pages, and on marketing materials.
Your logo must be unique to stand out and only a professional logo designer can help you customize your logo properly. A free logo maker or logo creator will at best, give you a generic logo using logo templates. Smart marketers and business owners know that it’s impossible to visually stand out if the logo for your business looks like thousands of others. Crowdspring empowers you to customize your high quality logo and create a brand identity that’s uniquely yours.

How much does it cost to design a logo?
What is a logo and how can you design one?
Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem solving through the use of typography, photography and/or illustration.
Logos are an important element of visual communication.
A properly designed logo will build a bridge between your brand and your customers and prospective customers.
Every business and organization should take its brand identity design seriously and use a professional service, not make a logo based on generic templates from a free logo maker.
Which colors should you choose for your logo design?
If you want a stunning and high quality business logo, you have to understand how colors work to create the perfect logo design. This is especially important in a wordmark, which is a distinct, text-only typographic treatment of the company name (examples: The FedEx, IBM and Microsoft logos are all wordmarks).
It may seem like an artistic decision, but the primary color you choose to create a company logo actually has a serious psychological impact on how people perceive it.
In a widely-cited study called “The Impact of Color on Marketing,” research found that people make a subconscious judgment about products within the first 90 seconds of seeing it. Consumers place color above other factors such as sound, smell and texture. Almost 85% of consumers cite color as the main reason they buy a certain product, and 80% of people believe color increases brand recognition.
Even if they’re not consciously thinking about it, people associate color with different things and feelings. Making sure your company logo effectively capitalizes on positive color association will make the difference in how impactful your logo is.
To learn more about how color impacts branding and logo design and to understand how a color-wheel can help you create a great logo, read Small Business Branding: What Color Says About Your Business.
Which fonts should you choose for your logo design?
High quality logos are not just about creative illustrations and drawings! Many companies use typography in their logos either instead of or in addition to images and symbols.
When incorporating words or phrases, logos often play with the font style, size, and even letter spacing. Some logos include the full company name, while some just include an initial. Some don’t include any letters or words at all, but traditionally use a specific text style for those elements. Either way, typography including the choice of serif or sans serif fonts and typefaces, is essential to making the words behind your company work well with the other graphic elements of the logo. Can it be read at small sizes? Is the letter spacing or word spacing well adjusted? Typography is a craft in itself - it’s the first voice of stating who you are.

When should you use a free logo maker to create a logo?
You should never use an online logo maker to create a logo!
We’re serious. You’ll find many free or low cost automated options that can create a generic free logo for you from logo templates. These range from a free logo maker, to an online logo maker that charges you monthly fees to use your logo, to a logo generator, to a logo creator, and other logo design tools. But, an online logo maker or logo creator can offer only generic, uninspiring, template logo designs that will make it impossible for your customers to fall in love with your unique company. A logo generator or online logo maker may claim that they allow you to customize your logo. But those claims are simply untrue. You can’t make a logo that stands out by using generic elements.There is nothing premium or professional about generic logo design from a free logo maker or logo creator using their pre-made logo templates.
Sure, you might be able to use a free logo maker or logo creator to create a logo and save a few dollars for your small business, but it will end up costing you much more when you struggle to build a strong brand.
Computers and free logo makers don’t understand human emotion or psychology. Real logo designers understand how people think and how to create emotionally powerful brands using original designs, not logo templates.
The truth is that free logo design is never free.
Don’t fall for statements that you can create a professionally designed free logo in seconds. This is not possible.
Look at the world’s most successful companies. Not a single one used a generic free logo maker or logo creator to make a logo and build their brand. That should tell you something...
You’ll either pay for professional logo design up front with a small fee or suffer the inevitable consequences of bad design when using a free logo maker or logo creator.
A free logo maker and generic templates will not leave a lasting impression on your audience and will not give you a one-of-a-kind, professionally designed brand identity. Even if they let you customize your free logo using the generic templates offered by an online logo maker or logo creator, you will get an uninspiring, non-professional, generic design.
Simply put: there’s nothing unique, custom or brilliant about logos when you make a logo using a logo maker, logo generator, or a logo creator and their pre-made logo templates, or when those logos are claimed to be created by an AI algorithm or computer from templates.

You and the designer you pick will be able to negotiate both the scope and the price for the project. When determining your award amount, please remember to price your project based on the scope of work. More labor-intensive projects deserve larger awards than very simple projects. You can set your own budget or you can ask the designer to provide a price quote based on the scope of work. It’s your choice.
