Step by Step Guide
3. Let’s find and select an icon for your logo. There are a lot of logo icons to choose from and depending if you have a rough idea of what you are looking for it can take sometime to choose one that feels right. To save time trawling through the icon library, type into the search bar using keywords. I would then suggest having a look through the list and deciding which particular icon sums up your brand the best.
4. Once you have selected your logo icon you can now decide where to position the logo relative to your company name. Have a play about with the positioning by selecting the logo with your cursor and position the logo round your company name. Try a few options.
