I think everyone deserves their own logo. It’s like a theme song – you have to have one. BUT…how do you get one for free? That is the big question. Well, you can try Fiverr. Ok, it is not exactly free, but as it only costs 5$, that is as close as you are going to get to free these days. I tried that. It is definitely a worthwhile concept. It was…okay. I mean it was only 5$ so I can’t complain. But I didn’t really get what I wanted.
So I decided to DIY my own logo.
That’s me using http://www.doppelme.com. As in Doppelganger – you know this, the person in the world who looks like you but hopefully isn’t you. A word that was not known until Facebook launched doppleganger week, which evidently happens in February when you change your picture to a celebrity to someone who looks like you.
Hmm that’s a good one…who looks like me?
Anyway…right now I am sticking with an avatar.
Here is another one from http://mybluerobot.com
Hmmm there are no old avatars….cause this is the 25 year oldish me avatar. A number I have not seen lately.
Ok – enough with the ADD.
Logos are comprised of two things, a picture and words.
The picture part can be either a good quality photo you have taken yourself, or you can go on Pixabay
or Unsplash and find quality photos you can download for free.
Then you can go on a site like Picmonkey and use different effects to change your photo.
PaperArtist also does really fun things with your photo. If you have a Samsung phone you can get it for free or on Google App it is 1$.
Like maybe you make one of a kind shower curtains…
After you have choose an icon or picture and edited it go to a photo editing program like ipiccy.com
or Logomakr.com. Both have different tools to help you create your logo. Ways to change the font, the color, place words on top of pictures. You name, those two programs can do it.
And don’t forget – it is a process, but YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF, if you so desire.
