DesignEvo : The easy way to design a logo

Image for designing with DesignEvo

In today’s era of marketing, branding is of prime importance. The bitten Apple in silhouette, the coloured letters of Google, the Three pronged star of Mercedes, these are just a few of the brands that are instantly recognised by their logo. After all, with so many products crowding the market, there has to be a way of making your brand stand out.

And what better way than a unique LOGO?

How to design a logo the easy way

I have often wondered how bloggers like Corinne ( everydaygyaan) VidyaSury ( Vidyasury.com),    and  Shalini of Shalzmojo.in have such nifty logs. And being computer illiterate and parsimonious to boot, I’ve only wondered and wondered.

Like most bloggers, I experimented and explored the possibility of designing a logo on a free online site. Canva seemed a logical option but got myself tied up in knots simply because I never managed to get a block of time to work things out. However, over several days, these are the logos I came up with using their templates and options for changing colours, fonts etc.

I wasn’t too thrilled with these logos. They seemed to lack something.

But it seems that the Universe was listening to my request and earlier this month I got an offer that was hard to resist . DESIGNEVO approached me to try out their online logo design site. Click To Tweet

At first I was hesitant. Time is something I don’t really have and I was apprehensive about spending even more time online. ( My family considers the internet the biggest disruption in our life).

However, I’m a real sucker for trying out new stuff and eventually I decided I should give it a shot.

The first question was : what should my logo be? Should I continue with the gerberas that I had randomly chosen as my Gravatar? Or should I choose one of the 100’s of design templates on the site? Since I couldn’t find the original file of the gerberas in my photofiles, I decided to start on a new logo from scratch

  1. I went up to the website and registered for a free account via Facebook.
  2. Then I went to the web site and followed the directions on how to get a free logo.
  3. After you click on to the home page, you will get a screen shot like this

As you can see it is very easy to choose what you want. With a host of categories to choose from just go for what describes your website best.

Since I have a very broad genre ( lifestyle, travel, photos, food, parenting, reviews, opinions) I can’t really decide what represents me best. So I thought I’d go with the flower motif closest to the gerbera that I use as my Gravatar.

  1. Once you choose the template, you will get a screen shot like this :

  1. Then you can choose the background, the icon, the shape, the text and play around with fonts, typefaces, colours etc to get what you want.
  2. Or you can choose a template choosing from one of the many that you can find in the first Screenshot, and then play around with that!

These are the logs that  I came up with

You can gave a great time designing your own logo as DesignEvo has lots of graphics, templates, fonts etc to choose from.

And once you have decided your logo, you can download it and use it for whatever you want -your website, your visiting card and establish your brand.

I had a lot of fun trying out the different  templates, icons, fonts, typefaces and designs. I could save them all too so that I could decide which was the best for me.

Finally, when all was done, I downloaded the logo and la voila : here is my new logo.

  1. The logo looks sleek and catchy. I’ve a logo that I made using Canva but been thinking of changing it for a while now. Let me try out DesignEvo and see if I can make something more apt for my blog.

  2. I love the way your logo has come out. I’m always fascinated by the idea of learning new things, so I get what you mean about experimenting. I use Canva for a lot of my designs but went with a professional logo designer when I wanted to scale up my presence. This, however, works perfectly well, so thanks for letting us know about DesignEvo 🙂

  3. Ooh my my! Sunita, this logo sure looks neat! I love that colour and now I am tempted to try out logo for my blog, too! I think I will work on it after Alexa. And, I will need your help. 🙂

  4. Thanks Sunita. Post Alexa campaign I am planning to redesign my blog and have a logo as well. Will give this site a try.
    Between, the new logo with yellow flower is great! Its making a statement of its own!

  5. Whoa!! Thank you for the amazing shout out – at first I thought you meant Shalini as in Kohleyedme as I am a huge fan of her graphic works. But so zapped and humbled to see it was ME!!! 🙂 ( My logo is courtesy Shilpa Gupte – she designed this for me)

    Awesome work with the logo Sunita – the cheery yellow and the cheeky side profile of the flower is very apt to suit the mood of your blog. Thanks for sharing this new app for me to work with too.

    (No – I am not calling you Cheeky 😉 )
