GraphicSprings is a logo maker that allows individuals to build logos for professional and personal use. The site provides a collection of hundreds of pre-designed graphics that serve as the basis for each creation. All available images are sorted into one of the many categories provided. Categories include children, religion, cleaning, medical, business to animals, construction, politics, landscaping, photography, computers, retail and many more. The user selects one pre-made piece and can begin customizing by applying custom text, colors and other visual elements. Once the logo is finished, the user can download the file as a JPG or PNG. The interface provides a basic three step system intended to help guide anyone through the process, including those that are not artistically inclined.Show more screenshots »
GraphicSprings is designed to help startups, individuals and small businesses create a professional presence for themselves in any marketplace or industry. The service has caught the attention of startup focused blogs and sites, which boast its free price and user friendly design. The application continues to attract users by offering a way to create a logo on a shoestring budget.
GraphicSprings offers a nice balance of price and flexibility. A professional designer will cost money, which is understandable because this is a valuable service. GraphicSprings provides those who cannot afford the fees a way to build an eye-catching logo without a large investment. Users can create an original logo starting with a pre-made image. Of course the finished product is not going to be 100% tailored to the user’s specifications, but it is possible to make something that looks professional and usable with the application.
The GraphicSprings interface is very easy to use. The application is clean and well-organized. There are a few banner ads placed around the sides but these are generally kept out of the way so they don’t interfere with the logo building process. Anyone can create a professional looking logo in minutes with minimal effort. No technical or design knowledge is required.
New users can click the blue “Start Your Logo” button found in the lower, right corner of the GraphicSprings homepage to begin. Next the user is asked to select a pre-made image. This will serve as the basis for the logo. The user is directed to the logo editor where visual elements can be edited and text applied. The last step is to download the finished logo using the button found along the top of the editor. No login details are required and individual accounts are not offered at this time.
Price is one of the best things about GraphicSprings. Anyone can utilize the application for free. There are no subscription fees and the user is not required to make any purchases. Ad revenue helps pay for the cost of the site. This is a good tradeoff to keep access to the editor available to everyone at no cost.
GraphicSprings is a great tool for anyone who wants to build a simple logo with little to no budget. The application makes it easier for startups and small businesses to establish their brand. The only downside to the app lies in the sorting of the base graphics. Users may find that some images appear in categories they should not, like arrows and abstract designs popping up in the animals category. The search tool is also somewhat unreliable. A search for “dog” turns up just one image, yet the animals category has at least two canine themed images that do not show up with the appropriate search term. The interface is very user friendly and contains no other obvious flaws.
