I’m the first to admit I’m an absolute nightmare when it comes to my branding; I can never find exactly what I want and I never have the funds to splurge and pay someone to make a logo for me.
Plus I’m a control freak and I worry I would irritate whoever I paid as it would never be exactly what I wanted.
Pass the Prosecco Please is nearly a year old now and I’ve tried to really get my site looking and feeling how I want it. I’m not creative at all graphically speaking and so when the lovely people over at Logojoy offered me a logo in return for an honest review I jumped at the chance.
Is it easy?
I found the site generally easy to navigate – you start by entering your company name, and choosing some different options for inspiration. It uses artificial intelligence to come up with your logo and lets you change as much or as little as you like. Everything is clear and neatly laid out, and after working out what I was doing it was really quick and easy to use.
My best bits
- you can make as many changes as you like – there is no restriction
- you don’t pay until the end – even if you spend three days creating a logo you still don’t pay until you are happy
- the preview option is amazing – you can see what your logo will look like on advertising boards, t-shirts etc.
- because of the artificial intelligence it seems to really get what you want – and once you choose a style you like you can edit it further.
My not so good bits
- there is a lot of clicking – when looking at options such as layout, font and symbol only three options display on the screen and you have to scroll right and keep clicking ‘show more’, I would personally prefer to see a grid, or smaller versions you then click on to preview.
- the symbol/monogram placement is a little clunky – it would be great to be able to fine-tune the placement of these, and be able to close the gap between the wording and the symbol/monogram
- gold leaf and font colour effects – it would be amazing to have a watercolour option
- long brand names – if your brand name is like mine and long it isn’t recommended and doesn’t fit in quite a few options. Saying that there are so many options, I was spoilt for choice and still came out with a perfect logo.
Would I recommend it?
Overall I loved using Logojoy, once purchased you can download your logo and depending on which package you buy you get high-resolution images including transparent background options.
I would totally and honestly recommend it, it’s given me a logo I love and that’s a huge ask when I’m so obsessive about these things!
And here is my new logo, I’m so pleased with it:
