Default Logo

Hi Everyone,

I designed the Logo of my business myself, I took a picture on google, modified it using photoshop and that's the logo of my Business

Is there a problem taking pictures from Google?

If the images are licensed Creative Commons (CC). Then you do not have to worry

You need to be very careful when taking images off the internet as they are all or can be copyrighted. I would suggest go to somewhere like oDesk.com or Desgincrowd.com and get your logo professionally designed.

Also check out stock graphic websites. There are free and paid options available.

It's best to make sure, as mentioned, that it's available to the public. Literally, the easiest way to find pictures is to just google public domain pictures.

I'd recommend designing your own logo from scratch using an online site. I personally used LogoYes, but there are plenty of other free ones.

Actually, I designed the Logo myself from scratch, I also designed the website and the Logo is online now. I don't know if the picture is copyright or not, and how to check that?

www.sewpassion.com

here is the website and the logo, what I got from google is the white bride picture, it is more like a clip art.

Do you think this is a problem?

My Friend, getting images from google/search engine and create a logo will make your life miserable in future when you will use it on internet or physical. Most of the images have binary codes embeded which will bark when bot will search them! And you will get copy right notice immediately.

So it is better to get it done from any good graphic design company at some affordable cost. We can help you in this regards.

Default Nice logo KAYSER...

Food for thought when creating a new business name, logo and/or word mark is to include your .com...

Does anyone know who was the first to grasp this technique and run with it? It was Amazon.com and it was both the company name and logo done in 1996.

I figure if it is good enough for a business that generated 62 billon last year it is good enough for me...

BTW: Hands down best place to get your first logo is at fiverr...10 bucks will get you an original graphic with clean and simple design. with 3 to 5 day delivery.

Any thoughts...
