A good logo is one of those things you need to have to make your WordPress website stand out from the crowd. When it comes to good logo design, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Remember, your visitors will recognize your blog or site by your logo, so it is important that you spend a little time on it. Here are some tips to get you started:
The Logo Should Be Relevant to Your Website
Your logo has to match the topic of your site. If you have a WordPress website for selling your product or service, then your logo should be have some kind of a connection with it. For example, a logo that incorporates a ship’s anchor is great if your blog is related to the sea, but it will not suit a tech blog. Similarly, you can use the picture of a car or wheel as a logo for an automobile blog. You know you’ve got a winner when you can show your logo to someone and they can guess what your site is about just by seeing the logo.
The Logo Should be Unique
Your WordPress website is unique… your logo should be as well. Let’s take the example of the anchor logo in the last paragraph. A lot of websites related to ships or mariners use the anchor for a logo, so your own logo should be completely different from all of them. Otherwise it’ll blend in with the crowd. You can add or remove some elements to the anchor to give it a distinct identity of its own. Maybe a unique color or style.
Using Text as a Logo
As you can see, I’m a fan of this. Personally I think developing a logo that IS your website name is a great idea and it makes it really easy for someone to remember you. You can always also add some graphic elements in later.
Overall, make sure your website logo is simple and easy on the eye. Make it too complicated or distracting and it’ll lose its power to convey any sort of message.
