Set the mood with the right colors

Your brand colors communicate the essence of your brand. Is yours bold and bright, or traditional and refined? Think about what you want to say about your brand, then choose the colors that project the right image.

Canva’s logo templates are created with designer-approved color combinations. Or if you’ve got something specific in mind, you can easily adjust the colors throughout your logo design.

Make it iconic

A great logo builds recognition and inspires trust. Make your logo unforgettable by featuring an image that captures the essence of your brand.

Canva has an extensive library of icons and illustrations to choose from. Simply enter a keyword into the search bar, pick the image that suits your business best, and drag and drop it into your design.

Make it pixel perfect

Now that you’ve designed a logo that you love, you’ll want to use it everywhere. So what file format should you use?

PNG is the best choice for most web uses – it produces a clearer, higher quality image than other file formats. The added bonus with a PNG image is that you can use a transparent background, so your logo can be used on top of different colored backgrounds without any awkward color clashes.

Collaborate with your team

If you’re creating a start-up, building a small business, or dreaming bigger, once you’ve created your Canva logo can help your team can create sleek, on-brand designs with shareable brand color palettes, logos, and elements within the editor. You can also collaborate together in real-time on any design, on any device, from any location. 

FAQ

Good logos are simple and recognizable, appropriate and memorable, scalable and timeless and versatile in online and print formats. The Nike swoosh and the McDonalds arches are simple yet unique, and have stood the test of time. Start with the concept, then choose your colors and font.

Logos boost brand awareness by:

  • Grabbing people’s attention
  • Creating a strong first impression
  • Separating you from your competition
  • Showing you’re professional
  • Expressing your identity
  • Building loyalty and trust
  • Making you more memorable

The right logo supports visual communication but doesn’t sacrifice your message for fancy graphics.

Make sure your logo sends the right message before deciding on colors. If you begin in black and white, you’ll be able to focus on the idea first. Then you can choose a color palette to stand out from your competition and create brand consistency for yourself or your business.
