1. How to Use a Gaming Clan Logo Maker
Start by navigating to the Logo portion of Placeit. You can do this by either going to the Logos or Gaming sections of the site.
If you think you might like to look at other genres or industries for your logo design, feel free to check out the general Logos section. Otherwise, let's head right over to Gaming.
In these sections, make sure to select the appropriate category, such as Gaming Teams or Logos, depending on which starting point you choose.
Next, browse through the selection of premade clan logo template designs. If something catches your eye, jump right in—you can customize the content. Think of this as your starting point, rather than your final design.
In this tutorial, we'll work with this one, so follow that link if you'd like to work along with me.
And here we are, ready to jump right in and customize our logo. Before we do so, make sure to note the save and favorite buttons, on the right-hand side of your browser's window.
It's free to sign up for Placeit—and you'll need an account to save your drafts.
2. How to Create a Gaming Clan Logo Using a Gaming Clan Logo Maker
Now, let's dig right into how to make a clan logo!
On the left-hand side, we can make adjustments to our text. For example, we can change what the text says, the font itself, and the color of the text.
Try out different fonts and colors! Your logo will update in the browser as you make changes.
Speaking of color, we can also change the colors within the logo itself. In this example design, we have three colors: a main color, an accent, and the background color. Experiment with the color scheme, and Placeit will update the colors in the logo, right in your browser. Cool, right?
Note that you can also choose a transparent background. This is really handy if you plan to make things like stickers or use the logo in your Twitch overlay.
Then, we can also change up the imagery—and this is more than changing the image itself. We can also tweak the image's colors.
Note that some images have a small play icon preview on them. This indicates that this image also has a unique animation. So, if you know you want an animated logo, you might want to keep an eye out for this option. The other images use a more standard animation.
However, if you prefer one of the static images, don't worry—we can still use it in an animation too, right here in Placeit. You have plenty of options.
Here's our sample logo with a new image, adjusted color scheme, and some adjusted text. Remember, you can freely adjust all of these attributes as much as you want, until you come up with the perfect logo.
Happy with your logo? Remember, you can save your draft, if you're not sure yet.
However, if you're ready to download, it's as simple as clicking Download, at the top of the screen. You'll be presented with your download options—a single low fee, or a subscription that allows you to create and download as much as you like.
When creating logos, the subscription is super price effective (and often lower than a single purchase) especially if you know you'd like to download and create variants of your logo.
3. How to Create an Animated Gaming Clan Logo
So, you can make some pretty cool clan logos on Placeit—but there's even more to see. You can also make animated gaming clan logos, perfect for video introductions, highlight videos, and so much more. If you're curious about how to create a gaming clan logo that animates, stay tuned.
Many of the static logos also have an animated variant, just like this one we've been working on.
Just like when we were working with static imagery, it's simple to start customizing our animated logo. For example, let's change up the imagery. There's plenty to choose from here, and it's all available for commercial use.
Again, just as we did earlier, simply browse and select any image you would like to preview.
After you choose a new image, Placeit will automatically update your video preview for you. Be patient on this—it might need a moment's wait. Then, go ahead and preview your animation.
But let's say you made a static logo that you really fell in love with—or you already have a logo design you love. No problem, we can upload your logo—either the static one you made on Placeit or an image logo from elsewhere—and add it to our animation too!
How? Well, we can also add additional slides to our animations here. Let's test this out.
Click where it says Add Slide to add more video content to your animated logo.
Next, choose a video template to work with. For this example, let's try out this animated introduction, highlighted below. It already has a place ready for us to upload our static image logo.
Once you've selected it, click where it says Upload Image to go ahead and upload a static image. It'll add your image to the animated template. It's really that simple!
I'm going to test this out with the original, static image logo concept we created and downloaded earlier. Placeit allows you to crop and adjust your image before it imports it into the animation.
When you're happy with how your upload looks, just click Crop.
And now the placeholder in the animation will be replaced with our upload. Simple, right? Just click on Preview Video to check out what your work looks like.
We can continue to push this further with even more slides. For example, we could try out this animated background with animated text. We could use it to describe the match, list the players, and give other important information about the game at hand.
Just like our logo, we can change the text, the colors, the fonts, and more!
You can preview your adjustments individually, in each slide, or you can watch them all together, as one finished video.
To do so, mouse over the video preview and click on the triangle to display more options. Choose either Single Slide or All Slides, depending on the preview you'd like to see.
You can also rearrange and delete your slides.
Click and drag on a slide to rearrange it in your timeline, shown at the bottom of your screen. So, for example, we could slide the first slide to the end, if we wanted to.
To delete a slide, simply mouse over the slide and then select Delete. It's that simple!
You can also duplicate slides from the menu that appears here, if you'd like to.
Remember, you can also save drafts of your work. This gets extra important to note when you're working with video. Click the icon in the right-hand corner of the screen, or add the template you're customizing to your favorites, so you can work with it again later, too.
You'll need a free Placeit account to save your work.
Once you're happy with your video, it's as simple as clicking Download. Your video will need to process, and you'll need to choose your purchase options. Then, your video creation is all yours—ready to use for personal, professional, and commercial use.
Not sure if your video is just right? Grab a free, watermarked low-res version of your video if you need to test it out first.
