Squarespace, the leading all-in-one website publishing platform, today announced the release of DIY Squarespace Logo, a drag-and-drop logo builder anyone can use regardless of technical ability or design savvy. Squarespace Logo is free for anyone to use for non-commercial purposes. High-resolution logos for commercial use are free with a Squarespace account, or $10 without.
Squarespace collaborated with The Noun Project to create an easy-to-use interface where customers can combine and format an infinite combination of icons and text to create the perfect logo. Customers can browse thousands of icons as well as dozens of Google Web Fonts. To personalize the logo, customers can choose from a number of different layouts, adjust dimensions, select colors, and more. In addition, Squarespace Logo provides handy previews, presenting the finished logo on a business card, a website, or a t-shirt.
“One of our missions as a publishing platform is to help people bring their ideas to life. When you’ re starting a business, even the basics like your website or logo can seem daunting.” said Anthony Casalena, CEO and Founder of Squarespace. “We’re thrilled to add Squarespace Logo to our suite of creative tools and help small businesses start communicating their ideas even faster.”
“Our international community of designers at The Noun Project has been building a global visual language to make communication quick, easy, and fun. We¹re thrilled to partner with Squarespace and open up this language to a whole new audience and medium, ” said Sofya Polyakov, co-founder and CEO of The Noun Project. “Every time a symbol is used in Squarespace Logo, the designer of that symbol gets paid royalties. It’s a win-win for both communities. ”
Once a logo is completed, customers without a Squarespace account can save a low-resolution, watermarked version of the logo for free, or download the high-resolution version of the logo by paying a onetime fee of $10. Squarespace users can use the entire service for free. Each completed logo is saved to a unique URL, where the logo can be edited at any time. Customers can also share their finished Squarespace logo directly on Facebook and Twitter.
