Creating a Logo for Your New Company

Every company needs a logo, find out how easy it is to get started

A Company Logo is Essential

Having a logo for your company is pretty essential, but having a great or perfect logo is not. One thing you shouldn't worry about when starting your company is your logo. Worry about getting customers in the door and making money.

While you shouldn't get caught up on creating your logo, it also shouldn't be horrible. Consider hiring a local graphic designer to help you out. If you don't have the budget for that, you can create a logo yourself easily.

Creating Your Logo Yourself

Let us say our company name is "Green Landscaping." Have your logo be just that "Green Landscaping." Find a font you like and call it a day. You could also put the two words together with and bold either the first or second word. While this will not win you any design awards for the best logo, nor will it for the worst. People will look at it and know this is "Green Landscaping." Check out 100 of the Most Famous Logos for inspriation.

If you are looking for something more "custom," you can try any of the many logo generators out there. Many of these logo generators will have you type in your company name, answer a few general questions, and select a few example logos you like. Then they will show you many different options to choose from. And you are done. You have a logo for your new company. Many of these are free or charge a small fee. Remember though, someone else could have the exact same logo, with a different name. Don't be surprised if you see one of the generated logos out in the world. Hopefully, not the one you choose.

At a later date, you can always change or update your logo for something better. But if you are getting caught up on creating (or needing) a logo, try one of the techniques above.
