So… you need a logo for your business or product. No biggie, right? There must be at least a thousand free logo makers. But oh no, there really are thousands! Where are you going to start?

Right here.

Below is my list of the five best logo creators out there, and a sample of a logo I was able to make with each of them — for free!

LogoMaker: Easy to Use, Plenty of Choices

LogoMaker promises to make it fast and easy for you to make your design choices and come out with a new, professional-looking logo in the shortest time possible. The only fully free option is to design and use a web logo, but you’ll get tons of design choices at LogoMaker.

Features:

  • Over 10,000 icons
    • More than 1,000 templates, organized according to industry and keyword
  • 50+ fonts
  • Effective search filters to help you find the right icon, template, and font for your business
  • The ability to create, save, and compare up to six versions of your logo

What You Get if You Pay:

  • High-quality EPS, JPG, PNG, and GIF files, each in three sizes
  • The ability to edit your logo as many times as you like, for up to one year
  • Multiple layouts for your logo
  • Access to your logo from any device

If you struggle with self-design logo options, LogoMaker does offer graphic design services. Of course, it costs more than doing it yourself. Still, the price is competitive for a custom-designed logo.

What I Like:

  • Plenty of design options
  • Money-back guarantee if you request a refund within 30 days of purchase
  • The design process is completely free
  • You’ll get four high-resolution download files for the lowest price around

What I Don’t Like:

  • If you’re not sure what you want, you’ll find the amount of choices to be overwhelming
  • On the free option, your designs will save for only five days

Best Suited For You If You:

Have a good idea of the kind of logo you like, want to be able to compare multiple variations of it, and would enjoy sorting through thousands of templates and icons.

End Result:

Logojoy: Harness AI to Create the Best Logo

Logojoy has a unique approach to logo-making: It injects artificial intelligence (AI) into logo design. Logojoy promises to use AI to constantly analyze color and image combinations to help you create the best logo for your business.

To use Logojoy, you enter your company name and browse through a gallery of logo styles, colors, and icons to choose the ones that appeal to you. Once you’ve made your choices, Logojoy generates custom logos for you to select from. You can tweak the colors, placing of icons, fonts, etc. until it’s all perfect.

Free Features:

  • AI-powered custom logo generator
  • Preview function to see how your logo would look on T-shirts, business cards, websites, etc.
  • The ability to create unlimited logo designs before purchasing one for download

Logojoy is another logo-maker service that’s only free to create the logo. The cheapest paid option (which is still pretty expensive) is for one low-resolution file.

What You Get if You Pay:

  • Unlimited changes
  • The ability to download your logo in multiple color variations
  • Full branding guidelines so you can keep your logo fonts and colors consistent
  • Lifetime technical support
  • The option to add on social-media-ready logos and business cards

What I Like:

    • Uses AI to create custom logo ideas — no templates used
  • AI technology constantly learns which design components work well in combination
  • Offers premium customer support if you pay for the top plan

What I Don’t Like:

  • Very expensive for a design-it-yourself logo
  • You have little control of the design process
  • The cheapest download option gives you only a low-resolution file

Best Suited For You If You:

Want a truly unique, non-templated design but have only a vague idea of what you want in your logo.

My Logo Design:

DesignMantic: Fastest Logo Design

DesignMantic is one of the speediest logo creators around. Just enter your company name and industry, and click the button to view hundreds of suitable logos. All you’ll have to do is browse to find the one you like best. Then, you can customize the colors, fonts, and placing of the elements.

Free Features:

    • Fast generation of logo options
    • Ability to tweak the color, fonts, and icons on your logo
    • Ability to filter preliminary search results by other icons you type in (e.g., car, tree, burger)
  • Templates categorized by industry, keywords, and alphabet
  • Logo design consultation if you’re willing to provide your phone number

For a one-time fee, you can download your logo in three high-resolution formats: JPG, PDF, and PNG. However, this is pretty standard among most logo creators. But the price to download your design is pretty steep since you won’t get ownership of your logo. Your logo remains a part of DesignMantic’s gallery, so someone else could use the exact same logo, and there would be nothing you could do.

What You Get if You Pay:

  • Two design concepts and one revision option
  • Various promotional merchandise, depending on the package tier you choose
  • 100% satisfaction, guaranteed
  • Prompt email support

What I Like:

    • Very fast logo design process
    • Hundreds of prepared logos to choose from
    • The ability to tweak your logo as much as you like
  • Personalized logo advice
  • Customer support phone number published and readily visible right at the top of the website, which is rare among logo creator platforms

What I Don’t Like:

    • Price of downloading your logo is pretty high
  • You won’t be able to trademark or copyright your logo
  • The logo options can seem quite similar

Best Suited For You If You:

Struggle with designing your own logo and want professional advice, but still prefer to take the DIY route.

End Result:
