1. Enter Your Business Name and Tagline
The TRUiC small business logo maker requires you to add your business’s name to help generate your logo. You can also optionally add a tagline or slogan.
2. Choose a Type of Logo Design, Industry, Font, and Color Scheme
When designing your logo, you’ll have to choose between having a logo with a graphic or having a text-only logo.
Option 1: Graphic
A graphic logo incorporates a relevant image into your design as well as stylized text.
Select your industry from the dropdown and choose your favorite font style and color palette to generate your first set of logo design choices. Our generator will come up with logo choices from a wide variety of tailored graphics.
Option 2: Text
This type of logo displays your business name or the initials of your business name in a stylized way using creative fonts and typography.
Much like the graphic logo generator, you’ll choose an industry, font style, and color palette. This will then generate your logo design choices.
3. Generate Logo Design Options
After you generate a logo, you can download your favorite one(s) and use it at no cost. You can even generate multiple logo design options and download them all for free if you want to test out a couple of designs. Our generator creates many options to choose from, so feel free to search through our numerous designs and explore!
4. Customize Your Logo Design
Once you find a logo design that you like, you can customize it further by changing the font and color. If you aren't happy with the changes you made to your logo, there is a reset button so that you never lose your original design.
5. Download Your Logo Design
Now that your logo design is customized, you can move to the final step: downloading your logo. We make it hassle-free with no email requirements and no sign-ups of any kind — simply download your logo, and you’re done!
Our logo maker will provide you with a high-resolution logo design in a scalable vector graphic (SVG) file format. This file format is the best for logos because it is easily editable and can be resized as small or as large as you need without losing any quality.
Our logo designs also come ready for all social media platforms, including YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Google, and more.
6. Make Sure Your Logo Is Unique
Now that you have decided on your favorite logo design for your business, you should conduct a trademark search to ensure that your logo design is different from other brands. This step will ensure that your logo design is unique to your business and that once trademarked, no one will be able to use it.
If you want to learn more about how to trademark your professional logo and ensure its availability, you can read our article on How to Trademark Your Business Brand.
Make sure to confirm that your new logo is completely unique by taking the following steps:
- Perform a reverse image search on Google.
- Formally conduct a trademark search using a lawyer specialized in trademarks.
7. Bring Your Logo to Life
Once you’ve generated your logo design, it is yours to keep and use for promotional materials.
We recommend using a service like Zazzle, which provides quality printing services for a variety of materials such as business cards, flyers, banners, letterheads, and more. You can even choose to have your logo design presented on products, apparel, and retail packaging.
Our logo designs can also be utilized for business branding, social media (e.g., YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Google, etc.), and more.
8. Start Creating Your Website
Now that you have your logo, you are ready to start building your brand and creating your website. GoDaddy’s free website builder offers the best option for creating a professional website and is very user-friendly — even for beginners.

Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can I use my free logo design?

What is the difference between copyright, trademark, and patent?
Copyright, trademark, and patent are all types of intellectual property (IP) that do different things:
Copyright are often used by artists to protect their creative work; if someone copyrights their work (e.g., novel, song, etc.), they own the rights to be able to do what they want with it, from selling to recreating.
A trademark, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are commonly used for logos and slogans.
Patents are used to protect inventions and ideas. For instance, if someone creates a type of machine or tool, a patent can grant rights to the inventor so no one can use their invention or idea without permission.

How to Use Your New Logo
Our logo generator is primarily open-sourced fonts and graphics in addition to some original designs from our TRUiC team, so whether you are ready to use your logo now or want to make changes to it, we highly recommend that you also do some research to make sure there are no other businesses with similar branding.
Doing this search will not only confirm that your business will be able to stand out against the competition, but it will also help keep you safe from infringement.
If another business is selling a similar good or service with similar branding, you could face infringement issues, the consequences of which could lead to the destruction of your inventory and marketing material, fines, and/or legal fees. So, doing some research now could save you a lot of money, goods, and time later.
If you aren't feeling confident with your logo, check out our Design Guides for Beginners, we'll give you helpful tips and advice for creating the best unique logo for your business.
Should You Trademark?
You also want to be careful of any trademarks or service marks that may be active. Trademarking is a legal process that helps you claim a particular symbol, name, or slogan as your own and gives your brand legal protection from infringement.
We do not give trademark rights with our logos; trademarking is a legal process and would need to be done separately with your state or with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). If you are interested in trademarking your brand, check out our How to Trademark Your Brand article for more information.
Once you have your logo and have done your research, it’s time for some business cards! Check out our favorite choice for your new business cards.
Next Steps for Your Business
You have your logo, you’ve done your research, now what? Here are some recommendations for the next few steps in your entrepreneurial journey.
Create Your Website
A good website with a relevant domain URL is an important part of your business’s image. With your website, you can connect directly with your customers as well as offer your services to the whole internet.
Not sure what domain your website should have? Use our Domain Name Generator to get some ideas.Once you’ve decided on a domain name, you can check if it’s available with GoDaddy.
If you’re looking for a website builder, check out our website builder reviews.
Get an LLC Operating Agreement
All LLCs should have an operating agreement. An operating agreement is a document that outlines LLC ownership duties for each member. Some key sections may include the business’s organization, capital contributions, voting procedures, and dissolution practices.
You can easily write an operating agreement for your LLC with our free operating agreement tool, or you can use our free operating agreement template. This document usually doesn’t have to be filed with the state, but some states legally require you to have one in your business records.
You can find out if your state requires an operating agreement by using our How to Form an LLC guide.
Find the Right Business Insurance
All small businesses - regardless of size - need to protect themselves should things go wrong. By purchasing business insurance, you can protect your company from losing its property or financial assets.
Not all forms of insurance are the same. Here are some of the common forms of business insurance:
- General Liability Insurance: This is the most common type of business insurance and protects against injury and damages that occur on your business’s property.
- Professional Liability Insurance: A professional liability insurance policy protects against claims of unsatisfactory services.
- Workers’ Compensation Insurance: If an employee is injured on the job and requires compensation, workers’ compensation insurance can cover the cost and protect your business from any further lawsuits.
