You don’t need a million-dollar sponsorship from Red Bull to create a gaming team logo. While there are plenty of online logo makers out there that will let you design your own logo for a reasonable price, you can actually hire an experienced designer on Fiverr to create a gaming team logo for you for as little as $5.
This means you get a completely custom logo you can be sure no one else is using, and with no hassle on your part.
If the low prices on Fiverr make you raise an eyebrow, I don’t blame you. I was a bit suspicious myself at first. But then, as part of his quest to find the best new logo for Website Planet, my colleague decided to hire several different logo designers on Fiverr to see if the end result was actually any good. He was surprised by the quality, and I’ll admit – so was I. Watch the video below to find out more, or read his comprehensive logo design service comparison.
How to Create a Gaming Logo on Your Own
Prefer to create your own logo? You can use a DIY gaming clan logo maker like Wix Logo Maker.
Wix Logo Maker uses AI (artificial intelligence) technology to generate a free gaming team logo based on your guidelines. For more information about the platform, watch the video below or read our full Wix Logo Maker review.
If you’re ready to get started, just go to the Wix Logo Maker homepage and sign up for an account. You can also connect with your Facebook or Google account.
To get started with Wix Logo Maker, all you have to do is answer a few questions about your business. The more information you provide, the better the designs will be. In this case, I’m typing Gaming Team into the text field.
The next screen is the word cloud, where you get to choose the best words to describe the overall style of your logo. I don’t recommend skipping this step – choosing the right words makes it easier for the logo generator to come up with concepts that match your style.
Once Wix Logo Maker begins to understand your preferences, you will see some logo sample pairs for you to choose from. Here, all you have to do is click the one you like more. If neither one of them is doing it for you, click I don’t like either of them. Note that these are just samples so the generator can learn your style better – your final logo will probably look very different.
Once you’re through with the wizard, you will see a bunch of AI-generated designs based on your preferences. Now, all you have to do is find your favorite design. Some of these designs will be very basic, but don’t worry – we’re just getting started. Choose a logo that has an icon, color combo, or font that speaks to you. You’ll be able to personalize your logo and make any changes you like in the next step.
Once you choose your logo, you can customize just about anything. In the editing bar on the left, you’ll find pre-made or custom color palettes and a color picker for each element of your logo. You can even change the colors of your icon – something not many online logo makers will allow you to do. Not happy with your icon? No problem – you can easily swap it for another.
In addition, there’s a nice library for you to choose from. For finer control, you can adjust the letter spacing, angle, and curve of your text.
Expert Tip: If you want your esport team to appear tough and formidable, use rectangular, blocky typography and shapes (like a shield), as well as sharp angles. If you want your team to appear more fun and casual, try more circular shapes and rounded corners.
Get Inspired by Famous Gaming Team Logos
To understand what makes a gaming team logo look great, let’s look at some famous gaming team logos.
Team Liquid, A winning esport team, has a winning logo to match. The angry war-horse takes full advantage of the aggressive animal mascot trend, a favorite of all competitive sports teams both on the field and online.
Team Liquid also makes creative use of the shield-shaped emblem, another trend in gaming logos. Interestingly, they choose a mild and casual lower-case typography, perhaps to make the team seem friendlier and more approachable to fans.
There’s a lot going on in the Heroic logo: overlapping triangles, dual imagery that depicts both an H and a Spartan helmet, an aggressive red background offset by a white overlay, wings… Put them all together, and you have a powerful visual emblem that does a lot without looking overly complicated.
The logo of Elevate, formerly Team eLevate, is practically a work of art. They use the two most attention-grabbing colors, red and black, but temper them with enough white so the gaming logo design isn’t too loud. It’s also fascinating how they depict a realistic shading on the mountain just with abstract white shapes. Last, notice the creative typography of the VA in the logo name, accenting the mountain theme.
An angry wolf in a circle emblem, the LDLC logo would fit perfectly as the logo for traditional sports as well. I like how the outline of the mascot is itself part of the emblem, making creative use of empty space.
Aside from the OG logo being a two-for-one with Red Bull’s sponsorship, we like the blocky letters and broad shapes. Stark, geometric designs like this denote strength and endurance, making them a good fit for competitive sports, but they’re hard to pull off because they often come across as boring. OG circumvents this problem by morphing its initials into a dynamic, diamond-like shape.
Team Envy’s logo is more impressive if you know they abbreviate their name as “nV.” The duality of this logo, as well as the choice of a lettermark over a pictorial logo, makes it just as appropriate for a serious business as for an entertainment brand like esports.
While Dignitas follows both trends of angry animals and shield-shaped emblems, they combine both in an original way. The sharp edges, particularly the unique serifs on the brand name, accent the aggressive qualities.
Taking abstract shapes to their extreme, the logo of Astralis again uses sharp edges and an aggressive base color to come off as fierce, or at least alarming. While the star is most prevalent, the large top point is reminiscent enough of the letter A to come across as an artistic lettermark logo.
The logo for 100 Thieves also uses aggressive colors, and the sloppy wet paint style adds a rebellious element. But what we like best about this logo is that it’s a visual pun of the word “loot,” a common term in esports.
Last, the logo for Cloud 9 is an ideal logo sample for any industry. By repeating the 9 in their name to make a cloud shape, they strengthen their brand recognition and make their name easy to remember.
Show the World What You’re All About
Until they allow felt-costumed mascots in the gaming area, your team logo has to shoulder the bulk of your branding. It’s the face of your team and the banner of your fans, so choose it with care.
Before you create a gaming team logo, figure out what you want your team’s personality to be. Do you want to scare your opponents with in-your-face imagery, or appeal to fans with something friendly and inviting? There’s no one right answer — it all depends on what kind of team you want to be.
The great thing about online tools like Wix Logo Maker is that you can play around with different options for your logo and see what works best, without having to spend a dime. But if you don’t have the time or patience and you’d rather leave the work to a professional, you can hire a designer on Fiverr to make you a completely unique logo based on your own personal preferences.
