Design your own logo in photoshop


Recommended Posts

I'm going to have a shot at designing my own logo in photoshop, I was wondering if anyone had any pointers on what canvas size I should use and what format to save in, as well as any other pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, great question!

Technically speaking, as long as you design it properly (that is, entirely made of vectors) the size shouldn't matter.

However, to be safe, it would be a good idea to make it reasonably big - maybe 4000px wide.

The first step is to literally sketch some ideas with pencil on paper.  Have you done so?  If so, may I see?

Ok, so if it was my logo, I think I'd want the middle part of the paint to be nice and strong and solid, but the lighter edges to be a tiny bit see-through, so that if I used it as a watermark, I could slightly see the photo through those areas.

Eg:

However, it's your logo, not mine, so I'm happy to help you to do it any way you like.
