The EKM logo builder lets you create your very own professional logo in minutes!
You can edit/build a logo by going to Design > Your Logo.
[remember]Under the Your Logo tab you will have two options; upload an existing logo or create a new logo using the logo builder facility.[/remember]
Create a Logo
The logo builder screen is made up of two sections: a sidebar containing editing tools and a large canvas area displaying your logo as you’re building it.
Where the magic happens! Your custom logo can be made up of three parts: two pieces of text and an icon.
This is where your logo will appear as you build it. Think of it as a large sheet of paper for you to work on.
The two text boxes allow you to enter the name of your business and a strap line to use within your logo.
After typing some text in the text box provided it will appear on the canvas. Clicking on this text will display a menu containing options for: Colour, Font Family, Font Weight and Font Style.
You can change the colour of text either by copying and pasting a HEX (Hexadecimal colour) code into the box or using the colour picker popup to choose a specific shade.
Clicking this area opens a drop-down menu listing all the fonts the logo builder offers. We've included a wide range of fonts suitable for a range of applications from bright and friendly to professional and corporate.
Many fonts let you edit how thick the font is; this is called its weight. You can usually choose between regular and bold. Please note: some fonts do not allow you to choose a bold option.
Similar to weight, this option lets you choose between regular and italic text. Italic text appears slanted and is good for strap lines.
You can add an icon to your logo by selecting it from the sidebar. If you’re looking for a specific icon or shape you can search for it using the search box.
[remember]After clicking on the icon you’d like to use it will appear on the canvas (overwriting any previous icons you may have selected).[/remember]
Moving & Resizing
You can move your text and icons around by clicking on them and dragging them with your mouse. You can also resize them by clicking in the corner of the dotted box that surrounds your text after selecting it.
You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move your text around with increased precision.
Saving Your Logo
When you’re happy with your design, click the Save Logo button.
This will open a modal window giving you the option of either applying it to your shop or downloading it (as a PNG or SVG file).
Apply to Shop
Selecting this option takes you to a preview of your shop and gives you the option of resizing your logo so it fits perfectly into your shop. You can do this by either moving the slider or typing a numerical value in the text box.
When you’re happy with the size of your logo, click Update. Your logo will now be added to your shop. If you need to resize or edit it, return to the logo area (in the Design section) and click Edit Logo or Resize. Should you wish to delete your logo you can do so by clicking the Delete button on this page.
Download Your Logo
Selecting this option will download a copy of your creation to your computer or device. We recommend you keep a copy of your logo in a safe place so you can use it elsewhere as part of your company branding.
