You want a free Logo for a website? There are a number of free logo makers available that you can use at no cost to you. When making a Logo for a website it should reflect your business or website, but not overpower it. A good logo is not easy – which is why people pay money for professionals to create them one. Try to think of how the Logo will look on various devices when designing a logo, cluttered text can be hard to read when displayed on some devices.
Before you start, remember this important rule: Less is More
Most of the Logo creators use a limited number of Logo templates to help you build an attractive design. Keep that in mind, if you use a free Logo creator its very likely that your logo won’t be unique. You cannot trademark or copyright any design created with a template based Logo Creator which means it’s not the best option for a business website Logo. If you are creating a business website you should consider paying for a Logo you can copyright.
The logo creators below are either a free trial with only time based limits or completely free to use.
We have not included any logo makers that are free to make only – you have to pay to actually download the finished Logo.
We did test quite a few free logo creators that were just plain frustrating, unprofessional or had ‘mystery meat’ navigation.
We don’t mind if they’re loaded with advertising (They have to pay for their hosting/work/time somehow) but if the advertising gets in the way of user-friendliness, we haven’t included them. User-unfriendly advertising includes a list of links that looks like navigation, but is actually a set of text ads.
