Standard Logo Dimensions [List]
It’s been over 15 years since I designed my first logo. It’s crazy how every time I create a new profile on a social media platform or control panel or gravatar that I need to go back and create a special logo file that fits the website’s specific dimensions. So I created a list of standard logo dimensions that any company or entrepreneur should have in their shared drive and at the ready to add to their profile.
This is by no means an exhaustive list but it does have the basics for branding.
- Vector Format. Request your logo designer provide a vector version of you logo. This allows for editing and changes later on.
- Vector Programs. The master file should be required in a vector program such as Illustrator or Sketch so that you or your designer can scale it up to any size you need.
- Long and Wide. You need a horizontal and vertical version of your logo. Consider all of the places your logo will be placed; website, hats, t-shirts, car wraps, business cards, and more and more…
- File Size. For online profiles, be sure to keep your logo image size smaller than 200KB, best if it were under 100KB.
- White and Black. You need your logo in a black version and white version as well as your full color version. Your logo should be recognizable on many different backgrounds and formats.
