The best solution is to work in a vector application where canvas size means nothing. You work at whatever is comfortable for you. Since it's vector, you can always resize as needed without any quality loss.

If you're working in a raster application, such as Photoshop (and yes that includes Photoshop's vector tools. Photoshop never creates vector files) then you should switch to a vector-based app such as Illustrator, Inkscape, Xara, etc.


That would depend on the need.

Could be 32X32 - 600X400 - 1024X1024, etc., there is no right size.

If you are making the logo from raster elements then it should be exactly size as needed (more or less).

If it's too small or too big, re-sizing it will damage the quality. Logo with blurred details it's not a good thing.

If you are working with vector elements then it does not matter how big the canvas is.

IMO it is better to choose Illustrator for logo making purpose.

  • is there any default size at least that ican follow? imean, the usual size when creating a logo?is it 1024 px by 1024?
