Can I have more than one symbol in my logo?
The Looka AI logo editor follows some design principles to help you create a beautifully designed logo - with no design experience.
One of the major rules is only allowing one symbol per logo design. The reason for this is to maintain a visual hierarchy in your logo design. Having multiple competing elements takes away from the main message of your design/company.
Is there a way to get more than one symbol?
While our editor does not allow for multiple symbol elements on a logo, Looka's database includes some symbols that feature multiple visual elements in them.
At this time, we do not offer any way to upload or customize a logo beyond the options available in our logo editor.
However, we do have the ability to add a symbol to the company name by replacing a letter with a symbol, this will allow you to have two symbols in one logo. Click here for more info.
What is visual hierarchy?
Visual hierarchy directs viewers to the most essential information on a page using graphic design elements like color, size, and alignment to organize and prioritize content.
These rules help create an impactful design, without using too many elements to convey your message.
Take the example below, this logo has too many elements in it, which detracts from the message the logo is trying to portray. It makes the logo appear busy.
Simplicity is key when designing a logo, so your brand can stand out on its own.
Having multiple symbols can also make the rest of your design harder to read/see when at a smaller scale.
