Create a Stunning Logo in Minutes with Artificial Intelligence: A Step-by-Step Guide to Using LogoAI
Since you clicked on this, you already know the importance of having a strong logo for your business. A logo is a visual representation of your brand and business. You want it to convey your unique message with just a glance. A logo can effectively communicate your values, mission, and brand personality.
However, designing a logo from scratch may seem easy enough… until you actually try. Graphic Designers have years of education and experience to boil down an entire brand and vision into one piece of imagery. If you are unable to hire an agency/designer or create your own from scratch, you are in luck! Technology is on your side.
Artificial Intelligence is all over social media and the news, but navigating all the tools and finding what is legit and affordable is another story. So we are providing our top pick for AI Logo creation and how to use it!
This is where LogoAI comes in.
What is LogoAI?
LogoAI is an online logo generator that utilizes artificial intelligence to create breathtaking logos in just a few minutes. You get to choose from a variety of templates and final options for your logo. The website and design process is user friendly, making it ideal for small businesses and startups.

How to use LogoAI:
Using the software is extremely straightforward.
Step 1: Go to the LogoAI Website
To start, go to the LogoAI website (https://www.logoai.com/) and click the “logo maker” option on the home screen.
Step 2: Enter your business name
After clicking the logo maker, you will be prompted to fill in the name of your business and an optional slogan, if you have one.
Step 3: Select your industry
This is an important step. Choosing your industry will let the AI software know how to communicate what you do to your audience through imagery, type choice and colors. If you do not see an industry that your business falls under, take time to think about which industry is the closest.
Step 4: Select the color scheme that matches your brand
LogoAI will provide a few different color schemes that work well within the industry you chose on the previous page. This may also be a good time to pick well informed, branded color options for your business if you do not already have a set scheme. You can skip this step if you wish.
Step 5: Select your font styles
This page will display a few different font styles to choose from. If you hover your cursor over the boxes with the different font styles you will be able to see well-known brands that use each style!
This option is completely up to you and what you think defines your business the best. You can skip this step too and let the AI make this decision too. (Remember, choosing some options will help your brand stand out, so don’t be afraid to get a little creative!)
Step 6: Check out your logo option and download
You made it! And just like that you get to pick your logo! LogoAI will provide a staggering amount of options to choose from. If you notice that a certain color scheme, font style, or symbolism is standing out to you, you can refine the options. If you look near the top of the page, you can refine the search.
If you see a logo option that is almost perfect, you can hover over it and click on the “edit” option at the bottom. LogoAI will then provide very similar variants of the same logo. You can also adjust the style, layout, fonts and colors from this page.
Tips for designing a great logo with LogoAI
- K.I.S. (Keep It Simple)
A great logo needs to have three equal parts to work: it must be memorable, it has to be simple and it is essential for it to be easy to recognize. So, avoid using complex designs that may confuse your audience and stay consistent throughout your design. Make sure it has a complete and cohesive feel. The best way to decide if it does? Trust your gut! Much of logo design is psychological, so trust your psyche!
Use easy to read fonts. Remember, the goal is to have your logo huge on billboards one day, but right now it will most likely live in many small places on people’s phones (social media, websites, emails, etc). Keep this in mind while designing it so you don’t end up with thin, illegible fonts.
Stick to a limited color palette. Using too many colors can give a sporadic, anxious feel to your design.
- Use your colors strategically
Colors cause subconscious reactions within the human mind. For example, blue signifies trust, peace, loyalty and competence while red may cause excitement and represent passion, love, strength and energy!
Utilizing color psychology to your advantage will pay off in the long run, but take this with a grain of salt. At the end of the day, create the logo that you feel represents your business, because you know it better than anyone.
- Be consistent
Be consistent with your logo usage! Use it in the same way across all marketing materials, social media and your website. Staying consistent will build brand recognition and strength. Logo consistency has also been linked to greater brand loyalty!
