Best iPhone Apps for Logo Design: Creative Logos Right on the iPhone
Designing crafty logos is obviously not a cake walk. Professional designers will definitely laugh at the notion of designing logos on your iPhone but for fun, it’s possible. For the professional crowd, of course, there are tons of logo design services but for fun and those random sparks of creativity where you just want to sketch your idea, there are apps.
You can sketch ideas on your iPhone (or even the iPad). There are quite a lot of apps that’ll help you with stuff like sketching, colors, fonts and more. That’s precisely what we’re looking at.
#1. LogoScopic Studio

You can use them directly for your requirements or edit them to modify the logo look. There are several tools for recoloring and editing the logo. You can use the logo for your websites, business cards or even print them on a piece of paper.
Makr is a perfect logo design app for professionals who work on designing logos all the time. Say, if you are at home and got an urgent requirement and you have do not have PC to complete the task. This is the time when Makr comes handy to design a logo within a few minutes.

#4. Jumbo Logo
If you don’t get time to create your own logos by any of the above apps, you can download the Jumbo Logo app on your iOS device. The app offers a wide range of logo design services through which you can easily order your requirements. This would be a lot better than installing the free apps, at least for me, if you don’t have time. The logos will be designed by the professionals who have more than 10 years of experience in designing and give 100% satisfaction guarantee. You can get several plans and logo samples to have a glimpse at them before you hire them.
#5. Logos by Tweak
Get customized designs from Logos by Tweak app on your iPhone or iPad by just tying the name or logo name in the search box. Design like a professional and make logo designing your passion. I am sure that once you start using this app, you will be designing like a pro in just a few weeks. But the character limit is something which you might not like. Just say, you want to print, “ThisisiGeeksBlog”, you might not be able to see the preview. Instead of that, if you print “iGeeksBlog”, you will see hundreds of sample logo designs.
#6. Logos for Adobe in Design
Logos for Adobe in Design app is simple and quick in suggesting you different logos. Although, it doesn’t provide the feature of customizing the logo but still, you can make the most out of the available templates in the app. You can email the logos within the iOS devices or transfer the logos to PC or Mac by using iTunes transfer.
Now this is the most different app in the list with many additional features in it. Designapp Graphics Design not only allows you to create and edit logos but also gives the option to create letterheads, banners, posters etc. The app has more than 600 font styles and thousands of shapes, badges, icons and logos. You can try all the free logosavailable in the app and also purchase the premium ready-made logo designs too.
#8. Adobe Photoshop Express
Adobe Photoshop Express is one of the best photo-editing apps out there. It isn’t a logo-design app directly but if you’re looking at a photo-editing software for the iPhone, this would be it. You can sketch your stuff with Adobe Ideas and then when you want to edit them – have flares and stuff – Photoshop Express will let you do that.
Sketch is one of the simplest apps that’ll let you put your creative logo ideas to paper. Well, at least to the iPhone. Sketch is a simple app to use and has no bells and whistles to make it a complicated app. It’s one of the best tools to have when you’re out and some spark of creativity hits you.
#10. Color Viewfinder
Finding a unique and pleasant color palette is hard. Designers who work with colors know how hard it is to come up with impressive color patterns. Interestingly though, right around us, we’ve got a lot of nice color palettes. Color Viewfinder helps you find new color palettes just by pointing your iPhone camera at a thing. You can tweak the colors and create palettes that can be used elsewhere.
If you are the designer that picks your own colors rather than being inspired by things from the nature and external world, Palette could be the one-stop source for your color palettes. With an easy and comfortable way to pick colors and compare, and an enormous list of features, Palette is a complete package.
#12. Font Metric
Want to figure out the metrics of a particular font? Here’s an app that does it for you. If you are a type-obsessed designer, you’ll find this app to be useful even when you’re designing logos on the machine instead of an iPhone or iPad. Font Metric shows up all metric info about fonts that are on the iOS system and also of the fonts you upload to it.
#13. Font Maker
Font Maker lets you use special characters to create a custom font (which gets replicated on the keyboard too). It’s more of a fun app but when things get really funny on your logo, may be you’re thinking of adding special characters. That’s where Font Maker comes in handy. It’s simple to use too.
Silkscreen is an amazing app that works in tandem with your Mac. When you’re designing on the Mac and want to show the design (Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks) on the iPhone, you can do that with Silkscreen. There’s a Mac app which you install and once you’ve got Silkscreen both on your Mac and iPhone, they pair seamlessly (even better when they’re on the same Wifi network). After this, whatever edit you make to the logo on the Mac (and save) gets pushed to the iPhone app instantly. Works great when you are working with a lot of people and clients on the project.
