DesignEvo: Logo Designing Made Easy

Designing a logo used to be a job better left outsourced to professionals. Not that now that’s not an option, but so many digital alternatives have sprung up that you can save the time and money it’d require to hire a professional.

You can technically use the Adobe Illustrator app on iOS to get the logo you want, or you have the Vectornator Pro. Both allow you to create complex vector forms right on your iPad, but on the other hand, both the mentioned apps have a learning curve that might take some time to master. And if you want to go full pro, there’s Affinity Pro, but again, this one for someone who wants to create a logo from scratch!

Hence, if you are not exactly an expert like me and don’t have the resources to hire a professional to do the job, you’d require simple tools to build a logo for your startup or freelancing gig. This is where DesignEvo comes in.

What is DesignEvo?

This app consists of simple and easy to use tools, but don’t let that give you the impression that DesignEvo is an app that isn’t capable of doing much.

It’s a powerful app in its own way that helps you design and create logos with just a few taps, and the end result looks professionally tailored. The best part is that you don’t need to have years of experience to end up with a great logo, because its just that intuitive. There’s almost zero learning curve to it, so to say, because you can just pick up your iPad, flip the app open, choose from a template, and basically edit it to make it your own.

How It Works

Here’s how things usually go down in DesignEvo:

You pick an initial icon or template among the options offered.

You customize it with your preferred colors, fonts, backgrounds and other elements.

Finally, you download the result as a picture on your phone or send it to yourself via email—different apps offer different options for download, file format and resolution.

It’s as simple as that. No rocket science behind it.

Many Templates to Choose From

DesignEvo is equipped with 3,000+ premade logo templates in multiple categories with different fonts and basic tools to suit you. Having these many options can be super annoying at times, though, since you can hardly make up your mind about which to go for. But it’s a blessing in disguise as well since you have an open ground for being creative as well.

However, keep in mind that not all templates are available in the free version. If you want to truly unlock DesignEvo’s potential, you’ll have to shell out some bucks to unlock premium templates in all categories.

Those in-app purchases might not be ideal for you if you don’t intend to use the app regularly, but if you’re a freelancer who wants inspiration or needs to create logos for clients all the time, then take the dive and you won’t regret it.

Is It For You?

We’ve already touched on this topic, but let’s discuss why you’d need this app. If you are on a budget, which most startups are, you will probably not have much cash to spend on a professionally designed logo. This app is a beautiful solution with its in-app purchases allowing access to a huge number of options. DesignEvo can be equally useful for anyone starting out to design logos for freelancing without much experience.

That being said, this app is limited in many ways and if you’re a professional designer that likes to tweak things to their will, this app isn’t for you. For example, this app does not show properties of the individual objects in the image, and you have no brushes to create anything on your own. You’d have to make do with the provided shapes to customize. Features such as brightness or gradient for extra control on the details of your image are absent as well. You get the idea, right?

Bottom Line

All of this means that if you seek a simple solution to your logo problem without being too heavy on the pocket, this app is basically your answer. But experts may not want to make it their go-to solution, which would not be a problem if you are just starting out.
