Apart from it, you do not need to be a pro at designing to create a logo on Microsoft Word. There is no denying to the fact that Microsoft Word is not the first choice for the designers for drawing logos. It just does not have the proper credentials to merit a place in the design software lineup. But can we still use it? Definitely yes!
Why should you choose Microsoft Word for your logo?
It is a productivity suite and not one of the creative units of tools. It is no one’s first choice; we get it, but what if someday you do not have any choice but to draw on Microsoft Word? What are you going to do then? Give up the opportunity? No, right? Also, before putting Microsoft Word onthe side, let’s just hear out some reasons why Microsoft Word is not that bad of a choice as you think it is.
- It is a pretty commonplace and relatively easy to learn, perfect place for amateur designers.
- It has multifaceted tools that can work effectively with both images and texts.
- It allows the user to use the document page as a canvas to drag and drop Shapes, Icons, and SmartArt.
- You can combine images and text and add everything into one image.
- You can use the documents to reuse the logo directly on the letterhead or page.
It’s time we talk about more important things, yes that’s right. Let’s teach you how you can design a logo on Microsoft Word.
Steps to design a logo on Microsoft Word!
An eye-catching logo has various elements, such as WordArt, Images, Shapes, and Colors, that grab customers’ attention.
Here we are going to make a logo of the Coffee shop, have a deep look at it, and see how we break all the steps down for you to make it more easily understandable.
First of all, it goes without saying. Open a new Microsoft Word document, go to the view tab and check the Gridlines box to add more Grids as it is more convenient and helps in aligning your future element’s logo.
Move to the insert tab and add a circle to your canvas.
Its time you choose the background color, you can change the default color to any shade you want. Microsoft Word has various colors in its collection.
It’s time you create the copy of a circle that we intend to make. Click on it with the use of the right mouse and select “copy.” Make sure your second circle is smaller than the first one. With the use of a cursor, put the smaller circle above the bigger one. To make the borderline thicker, click on the inner circle. Change the stroke line color to white. In case your emblem is without any borderline, you can add it anytime in your settings.
With the “Insert” tool’s help, you need to add two parallel horizontal lines to your logo.
Next, you need to add your company’s name with the help of the “Text” tool. You can either type the text inside or keep it outside your circle, whichever option you want to go with. Here we are adding the text inside the circle.
You can customize the font as per your preference by using the “Text” tool. Moreover, you have to ensure your text color goes perfectly well with your icon. Please make sure you do not forget to choose a transparent background for your text and remove the borderline.
Since we are designing a logo for a coffee shop, it is better if we add a coffee-related item under the brand name. With the use of the “Paste” too, we will add the geometric shapes that can represent an excellent coffee cup.
In order to give a refined and fuller look to the cup, we added a curved line just below the text.
After selecting all logo elements, click on “Group.” In case you want to move the emblem, it will move altogether, with all the items staying in one place only.
You are done here; see how easy it was to draw a logo on Microsoft Word!
How to use a logo designed on Microsoft Word?
Corporate logos are mostly found on letterheads; it is the best way to show your partner and customers that your brand has a consistent visual style. Moreover, you are free to apply your logo as a watermark anywhere you want.
