This emblem creator will allow you to create a custom emblem, logo or other type of icon. The end result is fairly basic in the sense it's in black and white only, but you can get some really great results with a little bit of creativity, as shown further down below.
If you're familiar with using layers in any kind of program, this tool won't be too difficult to use. But if you're not, things can get a little tricky. The main thing you need to know and remember is that in this tool you can only edit the top layer (in most cases). Which layer is the top layer changes depending on which layers you enable and disable.
If you think you're up for it without more instruction, go straight ahead, all you need to know is that the layer order is as follows:
- Crests layer
- Details Layer
- Main Body Layer 1
- Main Body Layer 2
- Main Body Layer 3
- Main Body Layer 4
By default only 'Main Body Layer 4' is enabled and all the others will have to be toggled on.
If this seems too confusing I suggest you read the tutorial I wrote, which you can find by clicking here or on the image below.
If this all seems very complicated, don't worry. It just takes getting the hang of, after a few minutes of playing and messing around with all the buttons and layers you'll be ready to create your own rank emblems, logos and who knows what else.
To show you some of the possibilities and to offer some layering inspiration I've created a few examples, which you can see in the image below.
Saving the image
If you wish to save the emblem you've created all you have to do is click the 'Turn into image' button and an image will appear below it that looks exactly like what you've created. The only difference being that this is a single image, rather than a whole lot of separate images. Simply right click it, select 'save as' and name it what you wish. That's all there is to it.
This generator is mostly meant for inspiration and for small, non-commercial projects (except for another emblem creator or something similar). You can use the emblems as logos, even for commercial projects, but you can't resell the images or use the separate images commercially. Many of the images in this generator are part of my Shutterstock portfolio though, so if you do wish to use them commercially, you can either buy a license on Shutterstock (the images are all vectors) or contact me to work something out.
At the end of the day this site, which I put a lot of time into, is still a means to create an income for myself, so I do have to protect some assets.
