So I am always on the look out for quick and easy ways to have logos made for testing purposes. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am a big believer in using a talented graphic designer that can create a logo that represents your unique identity and your brand.
That being said, sometimes, you are just testing an idea and don’t want to spend the $600 – $1,000 (that my graphic designer charges for my clients) to create a logo for a business, that might not be here in a few months. In cases like this, I just want to try out different platforms that allow me to create a logo quickly at not to much expense.
I decided to test out Tailor Brands. They had a special on App Sumo a couple months back that allows me to test the product with-out being out of pocket to much. So I tested it trying to redesign the logo for this site. The video below is a walk through of the product.
What I really like about it, is for less than $50, you get a logo, with a vector file (EPS). This means, if you like what you have but needed it tweaked further, you can give the EPS to your designer to work with. Also, with an EPS, if you have a Vector software (such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkvine) you can then render out different sized logos without losing quality.
What I like about Tailor Brands
The system is super easy to use, and on top of it, you can actually try it out before paying for it. So, if you never find a logo that works for you, then you don’t pay. It is not super sophisticated. I wish it spent more time going over font choices, especially when you keep selecting, Dislike Both. At the premium level, there are a ton of add-ons to help you grow your business.
What I Don’t like About Tailor Brands
Their pricing is misleading since they price it at as low as $4.99 a month but you have to buy a minimum of 6 months. I am sure they have a reason but I prefer they just state something up front like, $49 includes 6 months of access. The designs aren’t super sophisticated, but that is fine for the purposes we are looking for.
What I will do going forward
Apparently you can do unlimited revisions so I may go back and play with it more, see what those revisions actually mean. My biggest worry is doing a revision and losing the original design. If you want to try it out, click the link below to be taken over to make a logo.
