How to Create Logo Art with Stable Diffusion

How to Create Logo Art with Stable Diffusion
Learn to create logos, banners, and more! This tutorial shows how Stable Diffusion turns text in to stunning logos and banners. Easy step-by-step process for awesome artwork.

1. Prepare Input Image

To begin, we need to prepare our input image for ControlNet. I will create the input image with outlined text using Photoshop, but you can use any software.

  • Open Photoshop and create a square canvas.
  • Add a white background by filling a new layer with white color.
  • Use the Text Tool to write your text in white.
  • Apply an outline to the text by selecting "Stroke" in Layer Styles.
  • Set the outline thickness (3 to 5 pixels) and choose the outline color black.
  • Save your square image as JPEG or PNG.

The input image should look like this how-to-make-logos-in-stable-diffusion-input-image.jpg

2. Downloading the Necessary Files (Stable Diffusion)

To start creating your logos with text you need a couple models. I will list all the models, LoRAs and checkpoints used here. It's helpful to download these before we begin making logos in Stable Diffusion.

3. Stable Diffusion Settings

To start our logo creations we need to set our Stable Diffusion settings. You can ofcourse change all of these settings and play around to see what works best for you.

  • Checkpoint: I Used the dreamshaper checkpoint but almost all of the checkpoints work really well.
  • Prompts: Your prompts are the most important in all of this process. Make sure you enter a good prompt to get a good output. I recommend browsing the CivitAI Logo page and look for images that you like, from there you can adjust the prompt to your liking. Alternatively you can visit our free prompt generator for awesome creative prompts. Don’t forget to add the LoRA to your positive prompt.
  • Sampling Method: DPM++ 2M Karras is a good sampling method for logo creations as the steps get smaller near the end and improve the quality of the image.
  • Sampling Steps: I recommend a minimum of 25, you can increase this value for better quality.
  • Width & Height: If you are creating a logo make sure that both values are the same, either use 512x512 or 768x768 since most checkpoints are trained on this aspect ratio. You can always upscale your logo later with the Ultimate SD Upscale Script.

4. ControlNet Settings (Line Art)

Now, let's move on to using the stable diffusion web interface.

  • Open the ControlNet interface.
  • Drag and drop the image we created earlier into the ControlNet interface.
  • Set the control type to "Line Art" to optimize the model for logos and similar graphics.
  • Set the Preprocessor to “Invert”.
  • Enable ControlNet and set it to "Pixel Perfect".

5. More creative logos

To create more artistic and visually appealing logos, consider these settings.

In the ControlNet settings, increase the starting control steps slightly, this will skip the ControlNet extension for the first few steps of the image generation. Slightly decrease the ending control step, this will skip the ControlNet extension for the last few steps of the image generation. If the text is not clear enough, increase the control weight.


6. Create More Than Logos

This technique can be used for more than just logo designs. You can create banner images and other artwork, here's how:

  • Change the width of the image to fit your desired banner size.
  • Experiment with different checkpoints and LoRAs to get various results.
  • Keep the ControlNet settings the same as before.
