Jumpstart Your Logo Design With Tailor Brands
Branding can be one of the most intimidating parts of getting your small business off the ground. How do you create a brand that’s memorable and that you can use for logos, social media, and websites?
Enter Tailor Brands Logo Maker. The tool offers an automated logo maker and brand identity platform, that’s easy to use, customizable, and made with small business owners in mind.
Here, we’re going to take a look at Tailor Brands and tools that you can use to jumpstart your logo and brand design.
What is Tailor Brands?
Tailor Brands is a marketing tool that includes everything from a logo maker, applications and collateral for using that logo.
The company provides affordable marketing solutions for small business owners that need to do it all (mostly) themselves. Tailor Brands tools can help you create a logo and brand guide and then make marketing materials that you can use across platforms to help showcase your brand and product or service offerings.
The company has been around since 2014, and Tailor Brands was the first tool to introduce a fully-automated, AI-based system of logo design. To date, more than 3 million users have created designs with the tool.
Solutions for All Your Branding Needs
What sets Tailor Brands apart from all the other logo builders out there, is that the tool doesn’t stop once you design a logo. That’s really only the first step.
Once you design a logo (we’ll get to that in the next section, How It Works), the design tool offers you plenty of other options to meet your branding and marketing needs.
Use Tailor Brands to create automated marketing materials such as:
- Social media images for posts and stories; images are automatically sized for popular platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube
- Snag a domain name to match your brand
- Create a website or landing page
- Design and get branded merchandize through the Tailor Brands print store; items include everything from cups to t-shirts and more
- Design and order printed collateral, such as business cards and letterhead
- Create custom-branded presentation templates
- Create a brandbook that showcases your brand as well as outlines best practices for how to use it, your color palette and recommendations for use, and technical information about your brand design
How it Works
Getting started with Tailor Brands is easy. You don’t need any real design experience, just a basic idea of what you like.
I used the automated logo maker to create a new Design Shack logo in a matter of minutes. (What was most surprising is that it designed something similar to the current logo.)
Start by entering your company name and selecting a few typefaces you like using a this or that format. (It’s almost like a game.)
Then you can answer a few more questions about logo style preferences – logotype versus icon versus big cap, etc.
Then you get a few logo options as a starter that you can further customize if you like. (It really is that easy.)
Once you are happy with the logo design, you can keep going to create other elements for your small business marketing plan. Here, we chose the social media template.
The process followed the same few steps. You make a few design choices to pick something that matches your brand and business, select typography that you like, and watch the templates build right on the screen as you make selections.
Each of the different options for creating other marketing materials works in the same way. Pick a starter from the visual options on screen and make design choices from the options provided until you get just the look you want.
The most important feature of Tailor Brands is that it is easy and user-friendly. If you have struggled with creating a set of brand tools, this is the place to start.
Other key features include:
