Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to create a logo?

Logo design is an important part of your company’s brand development. More than an image with text and color, a logo communicates the tone and personality of your company to your potential customers. Hiring a graphic designer with an appealing portfolio and quality reviews is a solid start to creating a winning logo design. The cost to create a logo can depend on how in-depth the marketing and design services you request are. Designers can create one logo in multiple formats (horizontal, vertical, etc.) to fit both your website and social media platforms, they can create a variety of designs for clients to select from, or they can create multiple logos for one client who needs branding for more than one venture. Logos may be text-only, text and image, or image-only. Many designers and design firms charge by the hour for their services, while other companies offer packages bundled with design services. Here are some examples of cost:

  • National average cost to hire a logo designer: $170-$250.
  • Average hourly rate for a freelance marketing consultant: about $150.  
  • Tiered pricing for logo design packages from one firm:
    • Package One: $200 for three logo concepts, three rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
    • Package Two: $350 for 10 logo concepts, unlimited rounds of revision, and a variety of format and color end designs.
    • Package Three: $550 for everything included in the Package Two, plus business card design, letterhead design, social media graphics and an email signature.
    • Package Four: $850 for everything in the Package Three, plus custom brand guidelines, which outline a strategy for creating a consistent branding in the client’s business.

What makes a good logo design?

A good logo is an easily identifiable, memorable image that represents your brand. A good logo design aligns with your business model and expresses your company’s core values. A good logo design is simple, appealing, and easy for customers and viewers to quickly process. Some of the key components of a great logo are type, color palette and design. The scale, font and arrangement of the text you select will all make a difference in the feel and representation of your brand. A graphic designer will help you home in on the colors that best represent your identity and help you keep the color palette simple. The design of your logo includes the shapes you select and the way the color and type are arranged together. Investing in the services of a professional to create your logo design is likely a smart investment for any size business. Nationally, the average price range for a logo designer ranges from $170 to $250.

Elias and team did an incredible job designing a logo for me from scratch. He was incredibly responsive, took my feedback and preferences into account, and provided me with numerous designs and iterations to choose from. Ultimately, great to work with and I'm super happy with the results. Would recommend Elias and Transformed Design to anyone that needs logo/design work.

As an artist who is well versed in design principles, I thought I could create my own logo. I spent days, and days trying to make something good...Yet, nothing made me proud enough to feature on my website. Finally, I posted a request on Thumbtack. Super glad I did! Ryan at Avenue Republic designed a logo for my photography studio. He encouraged me to send inspirational examples, especially since I am based on the opposite coast. He was communicative throughout the process and delivered fantastic results. Ryan is highly knowledgeable about logos, he is an amazing designer, and I'm very happy with the final work! I would definitely, definitely hire Avenue Republic again in the future.

Julian is amazing and can't recommend him enough. He came to my rescue after a different graphic artist started a logo design project with me but couldn't meet my expectations. Julian worked with me to finalize the logo design that I can confidently say turned out far better than toughing it out with the original designer. What stands out the most is Julian's professionalism, responsiveness, eye for detail. He also collaborates with you, offering a great balance of listening and offering his perspective. My only regret is that I didn't work with him from the start.

James designed a logo for my company. He was very receptive to ideas that we had floating around and was able to translate very well our desires into a professional end-product. Very easy to work with and amenable to changes and requests.

Working with Spark Logo Design was a great experience. I was impressed at the responsiveness and ability to take fairly vague direction into concepts and assets that made sense. The editing process was quick and in the end provided me with exactly what I was looking for.

I aborted the project. Initial deliverables were submitted late and none of the initial logo designs met my tastes. During the email exchange to wind down the project Jamie resorted to snarky remarks. Based on this, I can't recommend working with him

Jerell with Rell Creative LLC was fantastic for my business. I wanted to create a new logo for my business from scratch and they were able to turn it around and send me more than 10 variations within 48 hours! There were various style and design choices that I got to choose and I'm happy with the final design they sent me. My business is ready to start fresh and grow under the new brand!

Muhammad was great to work with and very fast! I had an idea and some pictures of what I wanted for my logo, but an idea and pictures was all I had. I left it to the creativity and artistry of Muhammad and I was not disappointed. After giving me so many options and edits without any problem, He designed an amazing logo for me that incorporated my initial idea but executed it in a much more professional manner. I’m extremely happy and thankful for his great job! Without any doubt, I definitely recommend him to anyone!!!
