Category: LOGO DESIGN

Logo Prices Vary Depending on Your Needs

From DIY design to working with a graphic designer or agency, the cost of a logo can vary from $5 to $2500+, with several options in between. Mid-range options include buying a logo from an online logo maker (starting at $20) or a design crowdsourcing website (starting at $99).

So, before choosing a method of creating your logo and deciding on a price, you’ll want to take a look at what’s included. Here are some of the options: 

– Vector / EPS file: These are high-quality image files that can be resized over and over, without losing the quality of the design. We’re talking billboards and business cards, social media and storefronts; any size goes. You can also edit them with design software tools like Photoshop or Illustrator.  

– Transparent PNG: Also known as a transparent logo, this is a file containing your logo design on a transparent background. It allows you to put your logo on any colored background without having to worry about the colors clashing or the background swallowing your design.  

– Design guidelines: Whether you’re designing your logo on your own or having someone do it for you, it helps to have every design element written down – including the Hex color codes of each shade and the exact typeface variation you’re using (weight, font name, etc.). It’s really important to have these guidelines written out, so that you (and anyone else who may work with your brand in the future) always use your logo correctly. 

– Brand strategy: Usually offered by design agencies, a brand strategy can include anything from predefined color palettes and imagery to support your brand message to the tone of voice that goes into your messaging. Sometimes, this can even include competitor analysis, with an emphasis on how to differentiate your brand from others in the market, how to price your offer competitively, etc.

Design Crowdsourcing Websites

99designs
99designs runs seven-day contests divided into two rounds: qualifying and final. You have the chance to give designers feedback, and up to two weeks to review the final submitted designs before choosing a winner.Four different logo packages range from $399 to $1699 USD. The most pricey option is exclusive to what they call “top-level” designers. You’ll have to pay for your design contest upfront (before you get any logo files). But it comes with a money-back guarantee.

DesignCrowd
You can set a three, five, or 10-day deadline for your design contest on DesignCrowd and provide a detailed design brief. Launch a contest for $129 USD, and you can expect to receive up to 50 designs from a handful of designers. They also offer a money-back guarantee.

DesignHill
Through DesignHill, crowdsourcing a logo starts at $249 USD, while top designers cost $699 USD.  Although you can choose the contest duration to suit your needs, you’ll have to pay the cost upfront.

Let's all put together

For our following calculation, we will use the cheapest recommended service suppliers
and an average number of media. 

We would NOT recommend the resulting website because it's just a "cheap low budget" website.

WEBHOSTING
Bluehost: Basic Hosting Plan $9.99 per month *12 = $119.88 

STOCK VIDEOS
VReel:  HD Video 35€ = $39.92 one-time * 2 = $79.90 

STOCK PHOTOS
iStock: 12-Photo Pack = $115 one-time * 1 = $115.00

LOGO DESIGN
NoName *1: $20 one-time * 1 = $20.00

WEBSITE DESIGN / DEVELOPMENT
NoName *1: $150 one-time * 1 = $150.00

*1: Your trusted business partner (neigbour, cleaning woman, best friend,...)

NOTE:   The $484.78 is just the beginning. You need fresh content regularly. That means you need to replace your photos and videos and write compelling content. Think about, if you change only 3-time a year photos, this will cost you another $400+, for videos $300+
If you can do it all by yourself - ok - otherwise, you should keep a few hundred dollars for outsourcing.
