Hey, what’s up, everyone? In this video, I’m going to show you how to create a logo for your blog.
I’m also going to show you step by step how to do it. And if you do like the software I’m using, you can try it out for free.
It’s going to be the link directly below the video I hope you enjoy this video and I hope you also find my how to create a professional blog logo tutorial very useful.
With that being said, let me dive in and show you how to create a logo.
What Is The Correct Size For A Professional Blog Logo?
First things first, I want to show you the correct website logo size. I did a Google search here, so if you’re putting a logo on your blogger website, the normal size here is 250 x 150 pixels PX.
So we can make that using this graphics creation software here that I’m using it’s called Visme and what we do here is we go into Create New, go to Project and we click on more.
You can see all the stuff you can do with this I use this every day for my blog.
I create featured images and just images for all the articles I write.
Love this software, you can also create anything under the sun like presentations, infographics, business cards, images, featured blog posts, documents, and of course professional blog logos.
You can see all the stuff you can do with it but for this particular video, we’re creating a logo for your blog.
How To Create A Custom-Sized Logo For Your Blog?
So I’m going to do a custom size.
And as you can see here, the custom size option has got the width and height, and pixels.
As you can go back here, it’s 250 x 150 px is the standard size of a blog logo.
And keep in mind, with most WordPress themes you can adjust the size if it’s too small or big.
This is just the average size of a logo so we are using this size for demonstration purposes.
So you don’t have to worry too much about it.
We’re just trying to get a basic idea of a standard WordPress logo size.
So, to be as close as possible to perfect as we can get.
So we’re going to click 250 by 150 px in there.
Then We’re going to click create. We’re waiting for it here. And this is a blank slate here.
There are actually a bunch of different templates you can use for logos.
I’m doing the blank one because I’m creating a specific size, but they do have a bunch of templates you can use as well. I just wanted to point that out.
So if you want something premade, they do have various options for that as well.
So we’re going to do it up here where it says Untitled Project.
We’re going to name it, we’re going to name it Logo for Blog. Something easy to remember.
So when we’re done, it’s going to show up on our dashboard and then we can download it and then upload it to our blog theme and use it however we deem fit.
You can also make edits to it. It’s not perfect.
I’ll show you how to do that too as well.
How To Add Text To A Logo For Your Blog That You Create Tutorial
So what we’re going to do here?
Next, we’re going to go to the header and text. See all these options here. There are basics, graphics, photos, data, media, theme, colors, my files, apps, and there are all kinds of options with this.
And it’s super easy to use this software. That’s why I’ve been using it for going on a year now, and I don’t think I could live without it, to tell you the truth.
It’s pretty awesome.
Does everything I want it to do and more.
And you could check this out for free as I said. And they do have paid options if you want to do more with it.
And well worth the money to me, though. But here are the graphics right here in the text.
We’re going to go to the header and text.
We’re going to add a title. We’re going to fit it inside this box here, comes out here.
We’re working with a small space here, so we got to mess with it, and add a title.
All right, let’s do this.
We’re going to lower the font here to 60, and see how big it is.
We don’t want it that big.
We’re going to do about 36 or 40. We’ll do 40, as you can see right here, all you do is go up here.
This changes the front face here. I usually use Anton, but there are a million of them to pick from. I just like the way it looks.
That’s my preference.
You could change colors here, so depending on whatever you want your logo to look like, the color in the background, I’m just going to use red because it stands out.
I usually use red or black or orange.
I’m going to go red for this presentation.
That color stands out pretty well. And next, we’re going to choose a photo.
I’m going to show you photos.
I’m going to go through a few options
here is just to give you an idea.
All the stuff this software can do,
How To Add A Professional Background Image To Your Logo For Your Blog Using The Visme Software
You can search millions of stock photos and find the perfect background image to add to the logo for your blog.
So whatever your logo is about, your site’s about, you can put it in here.
Say you got a food blog.
You just do food and you got different options for food. And this one looks kind of professional.
We’ll do this one set as background. You’re going to add to the canvas. Delete that one.
There’s your background right there.
If you got a food blog done, that could be your logo. Part of it is the background.
We’ll do Mary’s food blog as an example.
I’m just going to come up with a name off the top of my head real quick, and make it generic to show you what’s possible here and how easy this is to create the perfect logo for your blog.
A little bit on the front side. We’re going to go down a little smaller.
We’re going to try to get it square. You just got to play with it a little bit and get it how you want it.
And then you can go left or right. Usually, that fixes the problem.
So right there, perfect.
Now you got a background, you got this and you got the name of whatever your blog may be.
If it’s a food blog, it could be anything, obviously. And you got all these pictures you can choose from as far as images go.
And you could just play around there are literally millions of images to choose from.
Just type in a keyword up here and it’s going to pull up different images.
I got my images. I got a bunch that I’ve saved.
And these are all them right here. Wallet. You got a computer.
You can see them all right here.
And these are nice because they’re not backgrounded images.
It’s just like a cutout.
So right here you got chickens and all kinds of cool stuff.
There’s a bunch of them and I’m pretty sure there’s a lot under food.
And I actually got food up there so we don’t have to worry about it.
And if you want to add a picture of a piece of fruit avocado here they got blueberry.
It looks like a plum, hamburgers, lemons and limes, and all kinds of cool stuff.
So we can go hit this and then click add to the canvas. You got yourself a lime and you can adjust the size, obviously, and just play around with it.
Stuff is super easy to use.
Replace the selected image, and add his new image. We’re going to add it as a new image. And you got these real professional food items that you can add to whatever it is you’re creating.
In this case, it’s a blog logo.
And then you want to get everything in exactly the way you want it, obviously.
Just play around with the sizes and everything. And I mean, that’s basically it. Obviously.
I want to make this a little prettier than what it is, but I’m just giving you a basic idea of how to do this.
And this would be your logo if you got a food blog, and obviously, you can make it any way you want, you got a ton of options here.
We’re going to go back to my images here and I’m going to show you kind of what I did for my logo. We’re going to go to cut out, get rid of the food one, go to my images and let’s find what I used.
I got to go through bear with me for 1 second. I got to go through some of these images. I got to find the exact computer I used here.
And I’ll show you what I did for a logo for my site. And I think it was this one. I have to go back and look at that little settings button there next to whatever you want to use.
This is the picture I’m going to put set as background. And that’s not the one I use. That came up a little differently.
We’re going to try this one. I think this is the one actually I use. Yes. Perfect. Now you got a computer here.
I have a product review site.
I got numerous sites, but my main one is a product review and marketing site.
So what I did here is I got this laptop as a background and I made it really simple.
I’m going to go to Basics header and text, add title, title right there, and make it smaller.
I’m going to fit in this little laptop screen at the top, right? That’s the goal.
Anyways, there we go.
Now we’re going to make this smaller. Obviously, I want to fit inside the screen of the laptop. Here we’ll go to font size 36.
And we’re going to put Jay’s reviews and marketing. And as you can see, it’s way too big.
So I got to mess with it
a little more and adjust the size.
We’re going to adjust the size here and go down to 18. There it is. You can do 18, you can do a little bigger.
I’m going to leave it right there. And now we’re going to adjust the different fonts we can use here.
Choosing Different Fonts For The Logo For Your Blog
I didn’t use Anton on this one.
I can’t remember exactly which one I used, but
I wanted to stand out, and look a little modern.
You can play around with that and
see how that switches your font.
That looks pretty cool.
We’ll go with that one and we’re going
to go a little bit bigger on this.
We’ll go to 24, and see if that works.
That’s about right a little bit.
I think 18 was perfect.
We can go back to 18.
And you want to center where you want at your text.
Obviously, we’re going to change the color.
So I do is highlight your text here
your title text, click the color button and
we’re going to change it to red.
Just like that, the color changed.
Now what else I did is I put a wallet
like it’s a product review site and a marketing site.
So you’re doing reviews, saving people money.
The same thing goes for marketing.
I’m recommending various products and services so
it kind of relates to the wallet.
So what do I do now?
I go to basics.
Graphics, photos, data, media.
I’m going to go back to Photos,
then go back to my images.
You got the Photos GIF, the mock-ups, and the cutouts.
You go to my images.
These are all the images I saved.
And I’m going to find my wallet here.
I got a cool wallet here.
And you just put add to project, as you can
see there, makes it a little smaller and you’re going
to want to fit it into the screen here.
Center this a little better.
I just made a logo from my site and
it didn’t take me very long, a few minutes.
Obviously, you’re going to want to get it as perfect
as you can because it’s kind of an important thing.
A logo for your site is the first thing a visitor is
going to see when they stop in on your blogger website.
So make it look halfway decent.
I’d probably mess with this font a little bit more.
I like it, but I don’t like it that much.
So I’ll probably switch it and let’s
see if I could find that. Wasn’t it?
Find one that I like a little
more than what I have now.
That’s pretty cool. We’ll go with that.
But just whatever font you like.
Obviously, different font faces you can play around with
and just find one that works for you.
And when you’re done with it, with your logo, all
you do is go to the download button here.
You got a present. You can click present.
It’ll show it to you, especially if you got something
animated that you created to make sure it looks right.
And then all you do is click Download when you’re
done with it and it’s going to give you an
option to download it in an image document, or PDF video.
You can even present it offline.
You can even download these in
high resolution if you want to.
I do that because it’s a logo.
I want it to look as good as
possible and have the best definition possible.
If it’s a picture, it’s not that much of a big deal.
But for this one, I would definitely do that.
Download a site resolution and you got
a jpg option and a PNG option.
So pick whatever format you like for your logo.
I always usually do the jpg and
then you click the Download button.
It says Jpg Download.
Then my antivirus is going to make sure it’s safe.
And then it goes into my downloads.
And you’ve just created a logo. Done.
So that was super easy and
you could do that for anything.
I’m going to take you through this real
quick and show you a few more options.
With this, we’re going to go
back to business, the beginning.
And then we’re going to do Create New again.
And then you can see all
the different stuff I’ve created.
I’ve got a ton of different I’ve created
a lot of stuff using the software.
I really like it.
And it’s super easy to use once you get the
hang of it, which literally took me a few hours,
probably about ten minutes to get the hang of it.
But then it took me actually like a
few hours to actually get decent at it.
And that’s without reading any directions.
I just kind of figured it out on
my own, it’s very user-friendly.
So that’s a big plus.
Let’s go back to this here.
Click the Create new button project.
We’re going to go to More.
As I said, you got presentations, infographics,
documents, charts, graphs, printables, web, graphics, social
graphics, videos, gifts, more or custom size.
We’re going to go to More and
there’s a logo option right here.
You see all these different options you got mockups letterheads, mood boards, logos, and labels.
I mean, you can create anything with the software.
