Here are some tips to create a logo design. Here are the steps you need to follow:

Before going through these tips you should aware from how to use Photoshop.

  1. First you can create a rough design on a paper if you are full-fledged with your drawing skills or you can start creating on Photoshop.
  2. In Photoshop you need to work on document for which you need to take a custom size paper of width 5 inches, height 5 inches and resolution of 300 pixels.
  3. You can either take RGB mode or CMYK as it both will function accordingly but to view a clear image CMYK is considered to be better as RGB creates pixels and gets blur if you zoom your image.
  4. To create a logo you can make the use of pen tool or you can take brush tool but pen tool creates better sharp design. For pen tool you have to work on path and a layer in which you can start creating design.
  5. You must see to it that each and every design you have created, has its own layer and path. If correction needed you can select its path and by clicking Alt button you can work accordingly to it.
  6. After creating design in your path it will ask you for selecting and then you need to right click on path and say make selection to add color to it.
  7. You can also increase the size by CTRL+T. Also you can create a duplicate layer if you need the same design but you need to flip it by right clicking and say Flip horizontal or vertical you can make use of other options too i.e. Scale, Rotate, Skew, Perspective, Warp etc.
  8. If you want to add on some effects to your logo you can make use of blending options and accordingly make use of it usually we apply “Stroke Option” to it.
  9. You can also make use of Hue/Saturation, Color balance, brightness/contrast to make color changes. This option you will find in Photoshop software (Image -> Adjustments.)

After all these steps followed you have to save the file in PSD and JPEG format and if changes required you can accordingly work on PSD file.

So use this opportunity, learn these techniques to create a logo and make much money by working from home.
