Creating anything is about expressing yourself, especially if you have something to say. When it comes to fashion I always see it as a walking statement. And this is why to make a clothing brand logo becomes so important, people out there wearing it with pride enforces your message. They wear what they believe in, and of course, your designs empower their beliefs. It’s kind of a first impression to whoever comes across them even if they don’t have a conversation. So if you are a fashion designer or a fashion blogger you must really think of what kind of logo will express your style.

3 Tips for Creating Your Fashion Logo
If you are going to make your own logo, take into consideration that every designer’s first thought is their own signature. If this came to your mind think about it again. Why? Imagine your signature’s applications. Will it look sharp when printed, stitched or stamped? If applied to jewelry, it’s got to be very small and might end up looking like a scratch. So take into consideration these 3 pieces of advice:
- Minimum size. Your logo must look clear on its minimal application.
- Minimum expression. Look into a symbol as part of the logo you can apply to future products that may be so little that by only seeing that mark it’s recognizable.
- Make it unique. If you still want to explore handwriting style, you could create your own symbol and use script fonts. The good thing about script fonts is that they have uniform strokes, without having a designer to recreate it as a vector.
Looking for a Fashion Blogger Logo Design?
Fashion Bloggers must look professional not only to grow their followers but to look serious enough so a fashion brand can actually look at your work and take into consideration making projects with you.
