Designing Stunning and Unique Logos with Procreate

Don’t be deceived by Procreate’s simple interface and streamlined features. This drawing app, though primarily intended for illustrations, can perform various design tasks, including logo creation. In today’s tutorial, I’ll show you how to design a logo with Procreate, step by step.

Creating a Functional Logo with Procreate

Procreate is a raster editor, not a vector design app. As such, it may not be the ideal tool for designing logos. However, it is still possible to create a functional logo using Procreate and export it as a PNG image with a transparent background.

Let’s dive into the process of designing a logo that features two interlocking letters within a circle.

Design Steps

Before we begin, please note that the following video tutorial will provide more detailed instructions and a visual walkthrough of the entire process:

Now, let’s take a closer look at the steps involved:

Step 1: Creating The Letters

To begin, open a new canvas in Procreate. Turn off the visibility of the background layer since logos require transparent backgrounds.

Choose the color you’d like for your logo’s text. In this tutorial, we’ll use white. Tap the wrench icon in the top-left corner to add text. Create a text object for the first letter, duplicate the layer, and edit the text to create the second letter.

To achieve a seamless interlocking effect, use a lightweight font like Avenir Light. Rasterize each text layer and use the Select Tool to manually position the letters next to each other.

Once the letters are in position, erase segments from each letter that intersect with the other. Merge both letters onto a single layer and move them to the center of the canvas.

Step 2: Creating The Circle Emblem

Next, we’ll create a circle outline around the letters and add a border to accentuate the emblem.

Activate Layer 1, which should be unused until now. With the Selection Tool, create a perfect circle by dragging and tapping on the canvas. Fill the circle with black or a color of your choice.

Move the circle to the center of the canvas using snapping guides. Create a new layer beneath the black circle and draw a slightly larger white circle. Finally, add another black circle layer, this time larger than the white circle, positioned beneath it.

Step 3: Resizing the Canvas

To ensure your logo is optimized for various applications, resize the canvas to match the logo’s dimensions. Tap the wrench icon, select “Canvas,” and choose “Crop and Resize.” Adjust the boundaries of the canvas to fit your logo perfectly.

Step 4: Exporting as a Transparent PNG

To complete the logo design, export it as a PNG file with a transparent background. This way, your logo can be placed on any background with the transparency showing around the edges.

Tap the wrench icon, select “Share,” and choose “PNG” from the options.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully designed a logo using Procreate!


While designing logos on Procreate comes with limitations, it offers a viable solution for creating simple and unique interlocking letter logos. Remember to work at a large canvas size to ensure scalability and export your logo as a PNG file.
