Get a professionally designed logo through 99 Designs:

Your logo is a very important part of your Website design.

  • You will choose the color scheme of your Website based on the colors in your logo.
  • You will choose a light theme vs. a dark theme depending on the look of your logo.
  • You will choose your navigational header based on your logo. Is your logo rectangular or square? Most modern designs cater to a rectangular logo, but there are headers available that cater to a square logo. 

If you already have an amazing logo, you can skip this lesson. If you don’t have an amazing logo, let’s get started:

Logo Design Contest – A logo contest allows multiple graphic designers to create and submit drafts of your logo, but you only pay for the winning design. This allows you to see multiple versions of your logo from lots of different graphic designers. I personally use 99Designs.com for my own logos and for my clients that don’t have an amazing logo yet.

How to Start your 99 Designs Logo Design Contest:

How to start your Logo Design Contest description – I love using 99 Designs because it allows multiple graphic designers to work on your logo at the same time. You will choose the winner and only the winning designer gets paid for the logo.

If you’ve been following along, I’m building out the Website ebikediary.com and in this tutorial, I’m going to get a professionally designed logo created. This video will take you through the logo design brief setup process. This allows multiple designers to start working on my new logo.

Logo Design Contest Part 2 Description – In this video show the designs that have come in. In the beginning I started out with the Bronze package at $299, but I wasn’t happy with the logo designs. I decided to add more money to the logo design contest so the prize would be $400. I also choose to upgrade and promote the contest. This tripled the amount of logo designs submitted. It also increased the quality of designs being submitted.

STEP 3:

Choose the designs that you like. I love this new feature in 99 Designs! You used to have to find the logos you like and upload them yourself, but now this step does it for you. You get to go through a bunch of logos and choose the styles you like. This will help the graphic designers who work on your logo understand which styles you prefer.
