The 8 Best Free YouTube Logo Makers

We tested all the 100% free YouTube logo makers, here are the best.

If you’re looking to create a logo for your YouTube channel you might have a few questions such as, what logo maker should I use? And is it possible to create a great looking logo completely for free?

Luckily enough for you, we’re about to answer both those questions. We’ve put together a list of the best free YouTube logo makers to make it easy for you.

Some of the other lists we’ve seen online list logo makers as ‘free’ but in reality some of the tools they mention only give a free low-resolution logo file which isn’t worth a whole lot.  Each tool on this list provides you with a 100% free logo that can be used for your YouTube channel, website, etc.

We’ve ranked them from strongest to weakest in terms of the final quality and design of the logos and the ease of use and functionality of the tools.

But first, why use a logo maker?

  • Reason #1: Get a quality logo for very little money (or for free if you want)
  • Reason #2: Create a logo for yourself without needing any design skills
  • Reason #3: It’s quick – you can create your logo in a few minutes

#8 NameCheap Logo Maker

Namecheap logo maker

Last up we have Namecheaps’s logo maker which, in our opinion, produced the worst looking logo out of all the tools on the list.  However, you can still produce some decent quality logos, and again they’re 100% free.

The biggest plus for this logo maker is the fact that the interface is super simple, within a few clicks you’ll have a logo ready.  You can also do some basic customizations but overall it is quite limited.

Steps to create your logo:

  • Click ‘Create your logo’
  • Enter your brand name and slogan (if you want)

Go to Namecheap’s logo maker


To conclude…

If you really don’t have any money to spend on logo design and you’re happy starting to start your logo design from templates that are free for everyone then the tools on this list definitely fit the bill. 

Being free online logo makers, these tools obviously can’t give you all the customization options you’re probably after but that being said you can produce some really great logo designs and make them unique to your YouTube channel (and brand) with customization options available. 

We hope you enjoy creating and wish you the best of luck with your YouTube channel! Oh, and if you have any questions, comments, or have suggestions for other awesome logo makers, leave a comment below!
