If you need to start building your brand’s identity right away and hiring a professional logo designer is not an option, then designing your own logo is the way to go.

Research your brand

You need to do your research if you want to set a solid foundation. Before you dive into the design process, take time to think about your competitors’ logos, ideal customer, your company’s name and if you want to add a slogan.

For example, in our niche – you have survival knives brands like Buck and edc brands like Maxamet. They all require different and tailored branding.

Keeping your logo design simple with a clean layout will ensure it looks professional and eye-catching. 

Learn about logo design

There are some elements that make a logo either good or bad. A good logo should be unique, easy to remember, versatile, relevant for your target audience and appropriate for your industry.

Know the color, font and symbol you want to use

Pay attention to the colors you want to use. You’ll want to stay in colors that represent your brand well. 

You can make your logo 100% unique by using custom fonts. However, there’s an additional cost if you want your fonts customized

Just make sure your chosen symbol doesn’t confuse or mislead your target audience. Since you’re a woodworking business, a saw background or a custom-fitted furniture could more clearly communicate your services.

Use software like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop to design your logo. But if you don’t have access to these software, you can try free or paid logo templates that you can customize.

Think about the overall look of your logo. Make changes accordingly to ensure it has all the elements needed to represent your brand clearly.
