What do I need to know before publishing logos in the Logo Maker? 🤔


Recommended Posts

While many designs are beautiful, not all align with the idea of offering a ready-to-buy design to a wide variety of buyers. 

Here we will address what type of logos work best in the Logo Maker, and learn how to maximize your options.

 

Logo maker Monograms: one letter only

When designing a monogram for the Logo Maker the logo must be a 1 letter monogram. The reason we support only 1 letter monograms is because the businesses checking the logo maker are not likely to have the exact combination of initials as you’ve designed. We want to get your logo the highest selling potential and that can only be achieved by accommodating as many businesses as possible. Choosing to do one letter is safer than many combinations.

Avoid limiting the text length

When “closing” your text within a frame you set the maximum length of the brand name or slogan. The more versatility, the greater number of businesses interested in your design. This means making (literal) space for “Superduperlongname and co.”. Try to take into consideration both long and short names. Here are a few tricks to make your closed text logo more accessible:

 

  1. Open the sides of the logo or banner on both ends where the text is located

  2. In emblems and frames that contain the brand name or slogan, don’t place the text on the design. Try placing it below the logo or on top

Logo variation vs. logo versions

Ensure your designs are significantly different from one another because:

  1. We want to keep the logo maker versatile. Our algorithm doesn’t know how to differentiate between very similar designs
  2. Having many variations of the same logo increases the likelihood of the logo to be chosen. Merge the logos that are too similar into one design with many variations

Variations of the same design which should not be uploaded as a separate logo: 

  • Same symbol in different colors
  • Same symbol upside down
  • Same symbol but outlined 
  • Same symbol different font

The best way to “reuse” a design is with a different VERSION of the symbol. If you choose to do so, it should be done by adding and removing elements within the original icon.

Thank you! Very cool information about the text length. Always wondered how that works.

Also love your suggestions about the different logo variations. I've been experimenting with those lately. Here's a recent logo of mine - I've made a logo of a woman with 3 options of different haircuts + a hijab, all in a single logo file made by turning off and on layers in different variations. People on the forum were asking how to do that, so it may be a useful example.

I think it's a cool idea and plan to do more of that, hopefully that will improve the chances to match my client's needs.

Heh, I'm surprised there was no humorous mention of the 'mono' from monogram being a prefix meaning 'one', hence 'one letter'.

Monochromatic, monologue, monorail, monoxide...

On-topic: I like that it shows where the problem lies. "If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million." (Or, in this case, the GIF) I really like that you've defined the difference between 'variation' and 'version'.

Hello i thought we are not allowed to publish similiar looking logo? or reuse design?

@gary513 That's right! That is why it's very important to differentiate logo variation (variations of the same logo) and logo version (different published logos that might be similar but are distinct enough from one another). Don't worry, you can always consult us if you're unsure- as soon as you get the hang of it, it becomes much easier. 🙂

I'm sorry if I don't understand. This is something new to me.

How we can add some element and remove it from logo maker?
As long as I know what we can do is to do tweak / variations from the logo element that we have.
Please let me know how to do it?

So you mean when we create the logo, we put all the element and then playing with turning it on and off by the opacity?

Hi logo maker team, I think there is not option to remove some elements from our logo? Does removal meaning turn off the element opacity?

@alish_creator While it's possible, it's not recommended, because invisible layers can shift the logo when a buyer purchases it, resulting with a misaligned design. It's best to remove layers before uploading the logo to the logo maker.

Then how can we do that?
How to add or remove any element on the logo that we upload? Is it that you mean that we create another new logo that is similar to what we upload and but different variations?

How can we do something like @vanadium1stdo?
I'm sorry, I'm still learning on how to optimize my logo maker feature.

Thanks a lot for all the sharing.

I just recently do the invisible layer thing, its hard but its the only workaround, i really hope Logo maker would have options to upload several SVG of the same logo variations, so it will be easier for us rather than creating the invisible layer thing 🙂
