With DIY logo creation services becoming more popular, is there still a place for graphic design when it comes to your business logo?
DIY logo services offer users the ability to design a company logo for a very low cost, sometimes even for free. Logo design websites feature pre-loaded fonts, templates and drag-and-drop artwork in a simple, functional layout. Someone with little to no design skills could easily navigate these programs to create a piece of artwork – for better or worse.
The issue with DIY logo creation is twofold: firstly, access to design software does not a graphic designer make. Professional graphic designers spend years developing their creativity and learning the design rules that inform quality work. Amateur designers may not have the skills necessary to create a great business logo. The second issue lies in the inherent nature of the service. Choosing fonts, images and colours from a preset selection can result in an unoriginal, redundant logo.
What Can a Graphic Designer Do For You?
A good graphic designer will work with you to define your business through art, taking your preferences into account to produce a collaborative piece that is customised for you and your business.
Working with a graphic designer will save you time, leaving you free to pursue your other business goals. A professional can come up with an original design that encompasses your brand identity and really stands out. Work from a graphic designer will have a bigger impact over amateur designs and will help cut through the clutter.
When it comes to great design, there can be no cutting corners. Designing a logo through a DIY service might save your business money now, but in the long run, poor branding can cost you a whole lot more.
