It took me 4 attempts to come up with a logo for my newest theme and even then it was rubbish! Logos are something I am usually pretty decent at but for some reason I just can’t create them for my themes.
I don’t have anything for sale on Envao yet haha, but it doesn’t really take me too long. I usually do a simple text logo, or if I have a good idea it’d take about 10-20 minutes.
i really don’t bother, i worry more about the space I assign for it.
Lets face it, buyers are going to change it almost immediately.

For sure there are more important stuff to worry about:
Whole design, coding, shortcuts, integration in wordpress, ...
But a real bad logo can destroy a really nice design, even when every buyer should know that it can be changed in some seconds.
I need nearly 1 or 2 days for a real logo, but just because I give my clients a detailed style sheet for how they have to use the logo right. For a theme logo I spend just some minutes and use precreated shapes and a nice typo.
it can be a simple logo, and it can look good too, but with simple I don’t mean just text..
also it would be good for the design, if the logo looks similar to the design… for example if you make a minimal theme, make a minimal logo for it
Don’t have an item here yet but for those items that i’m working on now it took me 5 mins, a simple textual logo and just 5 mins to get the font size and the font family fit
Open fireworks stick a gradient on gotham at size 15 save and close.
I like to add special attention to my logos, so I spend a considerable time (1-2 hours) working on the logo, depending on its complexity.
It’s true that buyers will change it with their own logo after they purchase, but I think it adds a lot of personality to a theme, specially in the live preview.
I’ve even got a person that didn’t want to buy the theme because I didn’t include the .ai file for the logo!.
