LogoNerds

For a low-cost logo design service, LogoNerds is good enough. I did get a professional-looking logo for a very reasonable price, but the outdated website interface and slow, impersonal interactions made the design process less than pleasant. Read on to discover my favorite alternatives, including how you can hire a professional logo designer for as little as $5 on Fiverr.

Namecheap Logo Maker

A long-time player in domain registration and web hosting, Namecheap has recently moved into branding with the release of its Free Logo Maker. Artificial intelligence (AI) technology makes this logo maker very beginner-friendly and fairly robust. Just be careful about commercial rights! If that concerns you, I recommend hiring a professional logo designer for as little as $5...

Logaster

Logaster advertises “AI-generated logo design,” which should mean your logo is created by artificial intelligence according to your preferences. However, the platform falls short in terms of creative and personalized logos. It does have a uniquely generous unlimited editing policy, but I’d still suggest using a different solution. If you want to save even more money but you...

Vistaprint Logo Maker

Vistaprint’s logo maker is advertised as free, BUT it’s only free if you order printed merchandise through Vistaprint. If you were planning to order printing from Vistaprint anyway, then this logo maker is not a bad choice. Otherwise, I’d look for a better logo design option like hiring a professional logo designer for as little as $5 on Fiverr.

Shopify Logo Maker

Made by one of the biggest names in e-commerce, the Shopify logo maker, officially named Hatchful, is completely free to use. The logo templates and downloadable files are decent for a free tool, but the customization options are very limited. In terms of added value for your business, you’d be better off paying a little more to get more powerful customization capabilities and...

Jimdo Logo Creator

Coming from a company known for website building, Jimdo Logo Creator is intuitive and easy to use. You won’t have many logo templates to choose from, but the customizations are creative, and you can instantly download your logo for free. Just be sure to double-check on commercial usage rights!

Tailored Logo

A so-called “marketing and design consultancy,” Tailored Logo strives to be your one-stop shop for small and midsize business (SMB) branding. The company’s prices for logo creation are reasonable enough, but its design portfolio is pretty hit-or-miss. For more consistent quality at the same price, I’d hire a logo designer elsewhere (or even design my logo myself).

Adobe Express

Adobe Express is made by the same team that’s behind Illustrator and Photoshop. Unlike Adobe’s professional software, however, this platform is very beginner-friendly. Unfortunately, what you gain in ease of use, you lose in customization options and commercial rights.

GoDaddy Website Builder

GoDaddy offers ease of use, personalized guidance, and responsive customer support. However, a poorly designed user interface (UI) and tons of hidden costs keep GoDaddy from being great. Especially when other builders – such as Squarespace – offer better templates and more advanced apps and plugins.

FreeLogoServices

Don’t be fooled by the name – It’s free to design your logo at FreeLogoServices, but you’ll have to pay to download it. With lackluster templates and average customizations, I’d say there are much better logo makers to spend your money on. If you want to save even more money but you need a professionally designed logo, you should head to Fiverr and hire a logo designer for...

5 Best Website Builders for Resumes & CVs (2024)

Several free website builders will let you design a decent site - but the one thing none of these builders will give you is a custom domain. If you want your site to look professional (and keep in tone with your brand), you need a paid plan.   As far as I’m concerned, Squarespace is my absolute favorite. It has the best-looking templates around, and even its...

99designs vs Crowdspring 2024: Which Is Best for Logo Design?

99designs and Crowdspring may seem very similar on the surface, but did you know that Crowdspring typically costs hundreds of dollars more for nearly identical logo design contests? Or that you’ll pay that much more and still get a money-back guarantee that’s only half as long?! Lower price, longer guarantee...these are just two of the many reasons why 99designs comes out...

5 Best Free Text Logo Makers Online with HQ Downloads [2024]

When designing a new logo, your very first choice is this: Should I use an icon, or should I just use text? Some of the world’s most memorable logos have been icon-based – like the Nike swoosh or the Apple apple. However, as powerful wordmarks from Google, Hershey, Coca-Cola, and FedEx have shown, text-based logos can be equally effective. But to make a text logo really...

Wix Logo Maker Pricing 2024: Are There Any Hidden Costs?

So before you spend precious time working your way through Wix Logo Maker’s artificial intelligence (AI) wizard and editing your logo, check out my...

Elementor Review 2024: Does It Live Up to the Hype?

I’ll admit - when my editor asked me to write this Elementor review, I wasn’t too happy about it. I’d tried plenty of free WordPress builders in the past, and never managed to stick with any of them for very long. As a web designer, I always felt they were actually limiting me. Sure, I’d heard Elementor was a great WordPress page and site builder...but I was skeptical. How...

Wix Logo Maker has a big name behind it, but is this online logo design tool really as good as the immensely popular Wix website builder? Maybe you’re better off using a platform that specializes in logos and branding, like Tailor Brands. Which of these platforms can give you a unique, professional-looking logo? Which one gives you the best value for your money? I decided...
