The Washington Post published an article today about redesigning a logo in less than a day, using only a pencil and paper.
Design firm Designboom has put together a free graphic design template to help you do it yourself.
You can see the entire template at Designboob, but here’s a small selection of the more useful elements.
First things first: Here’s the outline of the design:The name of the company: What it means: Which company is it for?
What does it look like?
And here’s the design in full:The logo itself: How it looks: You’re going to need a bit of creativity to get it all just right, but if you’re feeling adventurous, here are a few ways you can try it out:1.
Create a brand new logo: If you’re already using an existing logo, you can save a copy of it and copy it out and save it somewhere, like your email.
If not, use the Designbooms template to design a new logo.
This is an example of the font you’ll need:It’s a free template, and you can use it to create any of the fonts shown here:A few of the possibilities:2.
Change the size of the logo: It’s not exactly rocket science, but the bigger the logo, the easier it is to copy and paste it onto the next page.
A logo should be smaller than the original.
For example, if the logo looks like a letter “i,” then you might want to reduce it to a smaller size.3.
Create an alternate name: This one’s not so hard.
Pick a name that makes the logo stand out.
Just make sure to choose a name with a unique meaning and a recognizable image.
The name can also include the company name (i.e., i2e).
If you want to change the logo size, you’ll probably want to use a design program such as Photoshop or Illustrator to make the change.4.
Use a font that fits: The fonts you use can change depending on what font you’re using, but we’ve listed the most common ones below.
Font: These fonts will help you make the font smaller.
It might be a bit tricky to use your own design program to change fonts.
You can also try the Free Fonts program from Google Fonts.
For a more specific font size, like 14pt, you could try using the Google Font Manager program.5.
Use an icon for the logo.
This is also a great way to show off your logo without using a design.
The easiest way to do this is to simply choose an icon from the Google Play Store and draw the icon using a white background.
Font Size: Using the Fonts app on your phone, you might be able to add an icon to the logo you just made.
The icon can be either a letter or a circle, depending on your logo preferences.
Icon: Once you’ve drawn the icon, go to the Google icon store and use the Free icon app to add the icon to your logo.
The logo will now look something like this:Here are some other ideas you might try out:6.
Use the Google font to create a custom logo:If you don’t want to pay for an icon, you should be able forgo that whole process and use your Google Font Assistant app to create your own.
I’m using the Free fonts program from the Apple App Store, but it can also be done on Windows Phone.
You’ll need to choose one of the following fonts for your design: Arial, Arial Helvetica, Times New Roman, Verdana, Helvetium.
Here are the fonts you’ll want to choose:Font Size and Icon Size:The font you chose will depend on the size and color of the text.
For example:The Arial font is 12pt.
Font Size Icon Size and Color:If the font is 14pt or higher, the font will be 16pt.
For a more exact idea of the size, try using Google Font Settings.
Font Color and Icon Color:The icon will be drawn with a dark color, which means it will look like the text of the word “GREEK.”
Font Size, Font Size, and Icon:Here’s a closer look at the font, with the logo in the background:The fonts in the top right are a bit more specific, and I suggest you use them if you want a larger or smaller font.
