In this tutorial I am showing you how you can make a professional logo with Canva.
(Don't forget to click on HD and Full Screen to watch it in the best quality.)

I chose to make the same logo like Jay did in the 2017 Niche Case Study.
Of course, I will not use it anywhere.
I just made it to show you guys the process.

All tools I use are free.
I had to buy the icon for a few cents, though.

The online app I am using is canva.com.
The color picker is called ColorZilla.
Just install their browser plugin and you are good to go.

That's all you really need to create logos within minutes.
The logo I make in this video is not perfect, of course.
If I wanted to use it, I would have to fine tune it a bit.

Still, I think it is looking almost identical with Jay's logo.

What do you think?

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask them in the comments below.
I will get back to you as quickly as I can.

Cheers

Moritz

Hi Moritz, I have never used Canva. You say to choose the size first, but where to start? Is this addition to Jay's video so I have to check there first?

Hi Jovo.

Jay doesn't really show it. He uses Adobe Illustrator for his logos and only showed it quickly on Canva. He didn't make the whole logo with Canva.
That's why I decided to show how you can make the whole logo with Canva.
You don't really need to watch his video if you want to make your own logo.
It is, however, a great video in regards to building a mini niche site.

After logging in, just click on "create design".
It will show you different sizes.
But I always use custom dimensions.
For that I click on the button in the top right corner.
It should say something like "custom dimension" or "custom size". (Mine is German, so I don't know what it says in English.)
I do that in the video, too, but maybe I was a bit too fast there.

My size was already set to 400x100 pixels. That'swhy I didn't have to do anything there.
But I could have just clicked in the fields and changed it.

Hope that answers your question. :)

Moritz

Oh. And, of course, you need to know how big the logo space on your site/theme is.

I do not see the Create Design, that is the problem, see my all screen.

OK, found it. They use totally stupid color combination, cyan and white, not visible.
Reply
MoritzS Premium
Yes. That combination is not the best. ;)
