Where do you find/buy logos?

Yaro Bagriy @yaroslawbagriy

Where do you find/buy logos? Looking to purchase a logo for my business. The logo doesn't need to be super professional, but decently priced.

    I used this logo generator for my app logo. It is really cheap and extremely useful.

    https://brandmark.io/

      I just tried it with my company name and found out that my original designer also used this service hahaha

    If you need something custom, we at https://draftss.com would love to help.

    You can create your own if you don't want to spend any money.

    I have a quick tutorial to show you how to do it on https://logomaker.thehoth.com/

    I'm working on a personal project at the moment and I'm not planning on using a logo (because logos cost money and personal project budgets don't have money). If page load speeds and other performance concerns aren't an issue I use a font from Google Fonts and a unique name for the "brand" and that combination is the logo. Kind of like what Microsoft did with the bold italic Helvetica: https://www.thebrandingjournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/microsoft_logo_evolution.jpeg?x33302

      Great idea!

    For a simple logo for cheap I cannot recommend https://Looka.com (formerly LogoJoy) enough!

    You can create a logo for free, then it's about $60 if you want all the High Quality Exports and Assets.

    Here's a few that I've made.

    You can also try to make it in Figma.com is free

  7. 2

    I use two things for your logo, for free :

  8. 2

    You can try on Dribbble too, I remember when I was searching someone to make logo, couple designers (which portfolio I liked) wanted about $300

  9. 2

    Shopify has a free logo designer: https://hatchful.shopify.com/

    A really long time ago (like 10 years ago) I used to earn pocket money by creating logos on 99designs.com, it was the leading platform at that time for graphic assets, maybe it's still relevant today.

    1. 1

      A project I worked on used 99designs (about 10 years ago!) for a logo, and it worked out well.

  11. 2

    I've always used Upwork for logo design and it's perfectly fine. The Koala Rank logo was done on Upwork for $350 and I'm perfectly happy with it. A basic style guide was also provided.

    1. 1

      I've been searching Logogrounds too, which have around the same prices. I'll try Upwork and see what I can get. Thank you!

    If you have a high budget you can check instagram/behance for some pro logo designers. If not so maybe you can find some already made ones that you can purchase on the cheap side.

    1. 1

      The Budget is probably less then $200. I don't think a logo design needs to be super pro for a side project, at least at the start.

      1. 2

        If you want something techy and minimalist maybe i can help you with something.

        If you need any branding specs DM me and we can work something out.

    Asking around people you know is a good start. I had my logo for thedjinn.io designed this way by my former high school classmate. You tell me whether you find the result appealing!

  14. 1

    I'm using 99designs.com for the first time and like the process so far. The logo will cost you $299 and so far I've received close to 85 logo submissions. A few designers have even made modifications based on my feedback.

  15. 1

    99designs, for sure. The problem is the pricing. Really expensive.

  16. 1

    I'm terrible at creating graphics/drawing and I didn't want to spend money on the logo so my mum created my own lol. She's not a designer but she is quite art and crafty

  17. 1

    I've found 99designs to be the best bang for your buck. Getting to see multiple variations was helpful for me.

  18. 1

    I used fiverr.com and got a couple logos for flowist.io (including the one used) for $12

  19. 1

    I googled open source logos and found https://logodust.com. Looks awesome!
