Photoshop Logo Design Tutorial

This is a Photoshop logo design tutorial video. Just a basic video making a simple text logo in Photoshop. I go over some basic graphic design steps like adjusting kerning and spacing, color selection and debate weather to put certain words in the logo. Making this logo was simple and something that beginners can do. I debated of whether to do this logo design in Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, but since Photoshop is used by more people I decided to go with Photoshop for this logo design tutorial.




When setting up your document in Photoshop I like to make my dimensions even, like 800×800 pixels (this can always be changed later) and make sure your resolution is 300 pixels/inch for quality.

Your Logo Design

When thinking about a logo, don’t over think it. Now days simple is what is in, you don’t need a complex logo. Look at what the trends are and the brands that are selling, many of them have a simple text based logo. You can literally create something like this in minutes. I used a premium font, but you can download some really good fonts from fontsquirrel.com. They have a lot of different options that will make for a great look of your logo design.

This part is important, make sure to take the white background layer off and to save your logo as a PNG file and not a JPEG. Saving your logo as a JPEG will give it a white background.

Easy Photoshop Logo Design Tutorial

As said before, this is a simple texted based logo and beginners should be able to do this. Once you become more familiar with Photoshop you can use different techniques and more advanced effects, but you don’t want to over do it. This is a good start and simple enough for you to have a good look to your brand, you can always evolve in the future, but you need to take action. If you keep waiting for perfection, your day will never come. A good logo is one way to add value to your website.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
