What Is the Average Logo Design Price?

Have you ever seen a big yellow “M” and immediately thought of grabbing a burger and fries? Or spotted the swoosh symbol and heard the words “Just Do It” in your head? 

That is the power of a logo, and according to recent studies, over half of consumers are more likely to shop with a brand with a recognizable logo. In fact, nearly three in five would actively avoid a brand with an unappealing one! This shows just how important an emblem is in conveying a brand’s personality, product type, and overall quality. 

With so much weight on a single image, it’s obviously an investment any business will need to make. However, it’s also a significant one: new startups and owners can expect to spend anywhere from $300 – $1,300 for their signature graphic on average.

That may seem wide for a middle ground, but there’s a lot that goes into a design and attention to detail can make or break your investment. We’ll walk you through the reasons why a logo matters for your business’s success, how to determine your ideal price point, and the value you can expect to receive for what you pay. By the end, you’ll better understand the importance of a logo and the key factors to consider when investing in one for your business. 

Why A Great Logo Matters

Finding the perfect graphic to embody what your business is all about—without breaking the bank, of course—can do wonders for your brand, bottom line, and overall image. It’s a simple but powerful tool that can help elevate your business across a multitude of platforms and mediums, and may be the single most valuable investment you ever make. Here’s what a great logo can do for you: 

  • Help people remember your brand: A visually appealing and eye-catching logo can leave a lasting impression on customers, making it easier for them to remember your brand. 
  • Stand out from the competition: In a highly competitive market, a great logo can clearly differentiate your brand from the rest and distinguish your core values in the minds of consumers. 
  • Foster brand loyalty: A well-designed logo helps create a sense of trust and familiarity with your brand, leading to higher customer loyalty. 
  • Make a great first impression: Initial thoughts are huge, and a great logo can capture consumers at first glance. 

Now, you may wonder, what makes a great logo? While there is no one-size-fits-all formula, here are some essential elements of a great logo to remember and a well-known logo that illustrates each: 


A great logo should be easy to recognize and memorable. Think of the Apple logo—everyone’s seen a million Granny Smiths, but that distinctive shape and bite says Mac and iPhone anywhere in the world. 


Your logo should be able to adapt to different mediums and sizes without losing its impact. The Google logo, which changes for different events and holidays (called a doodle) is an excellent example of versatility. 


Your logo should reflect your brand’s values, products, or services. The World Wildlife Federation (WWF) logo is a perfect example of relevance, using a panda to represent their focus on conservation and animal protection. 


A great logo should be easily scalable, meaning it should look good whether it’s on a business card or a billboard. Airbnb‘s logo—a simple yet effective letter “A”—is a classic example of scalable design. 


To create a visually appealing design, your logo should have a good balance of elements, such as color, text, and shapes. Using an arrow that forms a smile, the Amazon logo is a perfect marriage of the movement of the arrow and the warmth of the facial expression. 


A great logo should have a consistent design throughout all its variations to create brand recognition. The Coca-Cola logo, which undergoes small updates about once every decade, still retains key features that have made it easily recognizable for over a century. 


Your logo should have a good balance of light and dark colors to make it stand out. With its clever use of negative space—can you find the hidden arrow?—the FedEx logo creates a contrast that makes it visually appealing. 


A great logo should be able to withstand the test of time and remain relevant for years or even decades. The Disney logo has been nearly unchanged since 1923 and is a perfect example of timelessness. 

As you can see, a good logo is more than just a pretty design. It considers these essential elements to create a powerful and memorable representation of your brand that will continue to resonate with generations of consumers. 

Setting Your Budget

Now that you can see how much thought and detail goes into such a small image, you can probably understand why logos aren’t free! However, budget limitations are real whether you’re a solo act or part of a buzzing startup, so you’ll need to get the most bang for your buck. That being said, it’s the visual cornerstone of your brand you’ll use constantly, and it has to be a budget priority. 

Factors like design complexity, deliverables, and the need for a responsive design can all impact your logo design price, and there are a range of options you can explore. Whatever your comfort level, there’s a price point that’s right for you. 

Low-Cost Logo Design: Under $300

In this range, you’re mostly looking at DIY options like logo generators or very basic freelance services. While these can be cost effective, they often lack the level of customization and professionalism you might desire for your brand. A risk you can run with a low-cost option is your logo looking generic or perhaps like stock graphics.

Midrange Logo Design: $300-$2,500

Here, you find a sweet spot that balances affordability with quality, and you can expect more than just an image file. A typical package includes initial design concepts, multiple rounds of revisions, and a comprehensive branding guide that details fonts, colors, and other design elements. 

The complexity of the design will influence the cost within this range, but you’re likely to get a well-crafted, memorable logo that will serve you well for the foreseeable future. 

High-End Logo Design: $2,500+

This range is where design agencies usually come into play, offering top-to-bottom branding packages that often include extensive market research. Expect a team of professionals to be involved, and depending on their reputation, it could drive the price upwards of $10,000. 

While this option provides a comprehensive brand identity package, it may not be feasible for small to medium-sized businesses. This is definitely for the well-funded startup!
