Creating a logo for your website may not be a tough task for you. But, creating a meaningful, attractive and professional logo for your website may need several day’s effort. Most of the bloggers use Photoshop to design logo for their websites or blogs. But, today I’m not going to talk about how to create a logo in Photoshop or Illustrator. Now we are going to make a unique and professional logo without using Photoshop or Illustrator!
What is logo? Why it is necessary?
A logo represents the identity of a website. For giving a professional look to your website, you must need a logo for that. I think, logo itself can say thousands of words. With the help of logo, we can easily help our visitors to memorize our website name. Take a look at some popular website logos:

Another advantage of logo is – we can use our logo as a profile picture for the various social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google plus etc. Now, we are going to see; how to make a logo without using Photoshop software.

How To Create A Logo Without Using Photoshop
This tutorial will help you to design a professional looking logo for your blog or website. So, just follow these simple steps.
Download and install Sothink Logo Maker Pro.
You can choose a predefined template. You are free to edit that template as your logo. But, I won’t recommend that. Because, we need to make a unique logo. So, click on the top left corner where sothink logo is located, and choose “New Blank Project”.
Change the logo dimension by going to the top “Config” tab. There you can set a custom dimension for your logo.
Now create your own custom logo!
To use a clipart, go to right sidebar area (Resource Section). You can click and drag a clipart to the editing area. Then, you can resize it as your need. You can even change the color of clipart.
Creating Text And Changing Fonts
Click on “Add Text” in the “Home” tab area. Then, you can see a sample text appeared on the editing area. Double click on the sample text to change the text. After that, you can choose a font from the top “Home” tab area.
Importing Custom Images
You can easily import custom image to your logo by using “Import/Export” tab. You are able to drag, resize or rotate the imported image as your wish.
In Sothink Logo Maker, you can draw lines and custom shapes like Round, Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, and Star Shapes. By going to “Home” –> Add Shapes.
Applying Colors To The Text
You can use colors to the text by choosing a color from the bottom color choosing area. Check the video for more details.
Exporting The Logo
You can easily export your logo as JPEG or PNG by using “Import/Export” tab. If you need a transparent background, simply choose “Transparent Background’ while exporting logo. For better quality, choose PNG format.
Saving Your Logo Project
This step is not a required one. But, I strongly recommend you to save your project by going to (the) Top left, Sothink logo –> Save As option. By saving your project, you can easily redesign or able to make changes in future for your logo design. That’s all.
