There are a lot of reasons to need a logo. You may have a shop on Etsy and need an eye-catching design or you may need one for your YouTube or Twitch channel. Whatever the reason, a logo is kind of a big deal. It identifies you quickly and it looks professional. There are a ton of ways to make a logo. Some even make their own with various drawing or graphic design apps. Others aren’t so artistically talented and may need a little extra assistance. Here are some excellent logo making apps to help you make something that look at least relatively decent.

Adobe has some of the most powerful creator tools available and it’s no different on mobile. Some options for logo needs include Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Capture, Adobe Comp, and a few others. For the purposes of this list, though, we like Illustrator and Capture the most. Illustrator is basically a less powerful, mobile version of the desktop app. You can create a lot of artwork there and turn them into logos. Capture lets you take pictures of things and turn them into vector graphics. Capture in particular is excellent for a good, simple logo, especially if you see some inspiration in real life. You can use the apps for free, but you need the Creative Cloud subscription to unlock everything.
Price: Free / $12.95 per month / $119.49 per year
Canva is kind of the big dog in this space. It’s a graphic design app with a bunch of features for general graphic design and some more specific use cases. You can start out with a blank canvas or import a design you already have. Additionally, you can add text, photos, and other elements. You also get access to 500 fonts, logo templates, and some other goodies. It’s a bit expensive and we’re never fans of subscriptions. Otherwise, it’s a solid app overall.
Price: Free / $6.49
Dotpict is a simple drawing app for pixel artists. Pixel are is kind of in right now for a lot of creators and an app like this lets you create your own pieces of pixel art rather easily. It’s a simple app overall, but it includes some neat features like a consistent auto-save and it lets you draw without hiding the pen tip with your finger. Additionally, you get the usual stuff like undo, redo, zoom, and you can add or remove the pixel grid to see your final product as you work. The app is free to use or you can get the pro version for $6.49.
Price: Free / $3.99
Font Rush is an excellent tool if you need a logo. It boasts over 200 fonts along with 250 background images for use on photos. You can, of course, use this app on logos as well if you want to. It’s a simple process. You import your logo image, add your text, and then change the font until you find something you like. It is mostly for social media and other such platforms and so the tools work toward that end, but it’s one of the few good ways to find some neat fonts for your logo project.
Ibis Paint X
Price: Free / Up to $7.99
Ibis Paint X is a drawing app with a lot of excellent features for logo designers. It comes with 2,500 various materials, 800 fonts, 335 brushes, 64 filters, a few dozen screen tones, 27 blendingmodes, and a stroke stabilization feature for more consistent lines. From there, the rest is up to you. You can design your logo, add text, and make it your own. A lot of logo maker apps use templates of some sort so you lose a bit of originality. Ibis is powerful enough for you to make something 100% original. The premium version is a bit pricey but we think it’s worth it.
Iris Logo Maker
Price: Free / $4.99 per month / $14.99 per year / $19.99 once
Iris Studios makes a relatively decent logo generator. It features a lot of the same stuff you see in almost every logo maker, including various shapes, colors, backgrounds, textures, stickers, and other graphical elements. You simply find the combination you want and the app does the rest. You can add text and change the font (along with color) as necessary. Most of the stickers and icons are categorized in 25 different categories. It’s easy to use for simple stuff, but it gets expensive pretty quickly if you want the premium version.
Logo Maker by Shopify
Logo Maker by Shopify is a super simple and free logo maker app. It works rather well for its price tag. You can create shapes, add colors and icons, and even add text as well. This one walks you through the process in a fairly logical manner. You choose your category, some design elements, and the app generates something for you. You can always retry if you don’t like the first idea. It’s a good, easy answer for those who need something quick.
Logo Maker Plus
Price: Free / $2.99-$4.99 / $4.99 per month
Logo Maker Plus is one of the more popular logo maker apps. It gives you a full editor where you can add graphics, change colors, and do all sorts of other tricks. The app offers a large number of graphic elements for free and you can buy more with single in-app purchases. For instance, you can get 700 additional graphics (plus no ads) for $3.99 or 1,000 (plus no ads) for $4.99. The options are powerful enough to come up with some neat stuff and you can even transport transparent backgrounds with your logo. The $4.99 per month price tag is only for people who intend to sell logos they make with the app so it won’t matter to most people.
Price: Free / $0.99
Palette is an interesting design app. It doesn’t make logos or anything fancy like that. Instead, it helps you find colors. You can take a photo of something and the app tells you all of the colors along with the hex code of each one so you can reproduce it in other apps. You can also save favorite colors, use stock photos or your own, and you can even create and save full color palettes. From there, just take the hex values and plug them in to other apps to get the exact colors you want. It’s a helpful tool you can use to help get your logo just the right color.
Z Mobile Logo Maker
Price: Free / $4.99 per month / $14.99 per year
Z Mobile’s Logo Maker is another simple solution for a quick logo. You start from the ground up with a blank canvas and you add a bunch of elements until you get something you like. The app includes over 100 background images, 3D rotation, textures and overlays, filters, over 100 fonts, and you can render it with a transparent background for use on other graphics. The free version is more or less fine and it comes with a monthly subscription to unlock all of the features.
