Once you’ve picked the logo template, you can go ahead and customize it by changing the font, colors, and text. Again, it’s a good idea to think about how each of these elements affects the overall design and purpose of your logo. For example, colors can be energizing or calming, and fonts likewise have a personality. By choosing the colors and fonts carefully, you can rely on them to tell your story.
When choosing colors, pay attention to the meanings of different colors and how people will react to them.
- Red is seen as a powerful, energetic color. If you’re designing a logo for athletic or racing gear, it’s a good choice, especially in combination with black.
- Blue is calming and soothing, which makes it a good color for logos for spas, health services, and water-related businesses.

You will have a wide range of choices of fonts, from bold and stylish to sleek and minimal to cursive and traditional, among many others. It’s also a good idea to match your fonts to the name of your business and your slogan.
