TL:DR: If you are just starting up, probably it doesn’t make sense in spending a lot of money to make your logo. Therefore, in this post, I’ll show you how to make a logo under 10 minutes and not spending more than 50 bucks.
When it comes to logos I have divided opinion. On the one hand, I like looking at a nice logo as much as any other guy.
But I flip out when I hear that Cadbury spent 1 million pounds just to change the fonts.
Or, when Pepsi spent several million dollars to slightly tilt their existing logo.
Does anyone really care about a logo that much?
Will you buy a product just because it has a great logo?
Personally, I feel it’s a waste for founders to spend a lot of money on designing logos when they are still struggling to find customers.
But I get it.
In the age of social media your visual identity is important.
