Creating a Professional Logo with LogoJoy

For the last few months, I’ve been attempting to overhaul the blog.  I’m not very creatively minded with design, that’s Myke’s forte.  I can’t figure out how to get to my end vision; I am far too perfectionist in that respect.  When Logojoy.com offered me the opportunity to design a premium logo, I nearly snapped their hand off!

I decided to enlist Myke’s help as my design consultant, and we sat down to design my new logo! However, as soon as I started, I realised that my logo is part of my blogging identity and I didn’t really want to change that.  Of course, that didn’t stop me having a play! If I were in the market for a new logo for MisadventurousMummy.com, then I would have struggled to decide between a couple that I designed. They look so, so professional. I’ll show you one of them here in this review.

However, I decided to use my LogoJoy credit for our future.  We intend to launch a business in the new year, and of course, we’ll need a logo!  I decided to just have a little play around and ended up creating the perfect logo for us.  It took all of 15 minutes and is truly excellent. It’s essential that our logo is clear, and uncomplicated while still retaining a creative and fun feel.  LogoJoy did this for me, with minimum alterations from me.

It’s effortless to design your logo, and there is no commitment to purchasing, so you can just go on and have a play.  The process has a few easy steps before it gives you a selection of personalised logos to customise to suit you.

The first thing you’re asked to do is to pick 5 logos from a selection of previous designs so that they can see where your tastes lie.  After that, you are invited to choose a colour scheme which tells you the perceived traits attached to that colour.  For example, the mint/turquoise colour scheme is associated with “creativity, inspiration, credibility, reliability and spiritual development”.  This is great to know if you do not yet have a colour scheme in mind.

The next step is to input your name and slogan if you wish.   (When I was playing with Misadventurous Mummy, I had to have Mummy as my slogan due to character limits.  This wasn’t a problem, but it could be if your business has a long name, so it’s worth keeping in mind.)

Finally, you search their database of symbols to find five that appeal to you.  These are optional, but it’s worth picking at least a couple as they can completely alter the design of your logo and pull it all together. I found the database to be extremely thorough, and it was difficult to narrow it down to only 5.

As soon as you press for the next step, you get blown away by choice. It’s important to remember that if you almost love one, you can customise it until it is perfect for you.  Once you choose your favourite as a starting point, you get shown a set of previews of your logo in action! This is what makes LogoJoy stand out for me if I’m honest.  It changes your logo from a concept into something tangible.  By seeing it in different contexts, you can see if it will look good in all the places you will use it which is exceptionally well thought out.

In the logo that we eventually purchased, I only needed to change the shade of colour that it had set, the rest was perfect from the get-go.  However, as you can see in the screenshot below, you can alter everything about it.

Once you have customised your perfect logo, purchasing couldn’t be more straightforward.  You choose your price bracket – $20, $65 and $165 and there you have it.  Your logo is there ready for use.  You do get a lot for your money with the $65 Premium option, but the $165 Enterprise option also includes an hour design time with a professional ($100 add-on) and the Social Media Kit ($9 add-on). This gives you access to your logo at social media optimised sizes which can save you a lot of time if you are not technically minded.

Overall, I cannot recommend LogoJoy enough.  If I ever need a logo in future, this will definitely be my first stop as it took away all the aspects that would normally have me pulling my hair out!
