Modern Logo refers to the combination of classic and trending elements that when combined creates a brand that feels fresh. A lot of business and personal brands opt to choose this type of style because it looks sleek and straightforward.
Do you know that you can create your modern logo without design experience and without hiring expensive agencies? You can do this by using Canva, a graphics-based platform that makes designing easier for everyone. First, you will need an account. No worries because you can choose between a free account or a pro account.

Before I started creating the logo, I first thought of the concept. Where will it be used? what will be the feel of it and to which consumer I want it to appeal. And most importantly what color will look best for. For this one, I came up with an idea of a dainty-looking boutique where young adults shop for dresses to wear on a “Sundate” with friends.
Now that we have a concept, we are set. let’s start creating!
Step 1. Once you are on your Canva screen, the one on the left is the menu tab. look for the “elements” icon. From there find the shape category then look for the circle. You will use this to create an oblong.
Step 2. After that, you will need to find an element to put inside of it. This is to add a personal touch to your logo, a nice way of showing your icon or symbol. What you, your services, or products represent. For this design, I chose a flower, which often represents femininity. I resize it to almost occupy most of the space.
Step 3. Now let’s proceed with adding the texts. I like to wrap it around the shape. I would also like it to say “Sundays’ dress boutique” on top. This will be the name of the shop. Then the tag line at the bottom will say “tailored to perfection”. To do this, just highlight the text and click on “effect” and choose “curve”. You can adjust it if you want it wider or narrower.
I used the font style “ovo” and the font height is 16. 16 is the standard size for social media purposes. This is to make sure it is visible across all devices. I set the curve to 55%
Step 4. For additional detail. add two small solid circles to each side of the oblong. This will serve as a separator for the boutique name and tagline.
Now you have a simple but modern-looking logo. You can modify it further and personalize it to fit your personality. If you love creating logos, you can even sell your design on Etsy. Or even better, when you master the use of Canva, you can offer your services on Fiverr and earn from doing this. There are so many opportunities in this area, and we just need to practice and develop the inner artist within us.
