Or, you could even use a gradient background if you're a fan of gradients like us. We tried out a bluish gradient and we liked what we have. It retains the central colors in the middle of the logo while allowing the background to shine through.

The next template in our collection is a favorite amongst our users. :)

  • It has a red gradient to it, which is ideal for its theme (devilish)
  • The devil makes it appear quite sinister, although it is far from it
  • Its tail gives it an artistic touch
  • It allows you to have your short name displayed on it

We changed it to a yellowish theme without disturbing the devil in the foreground, and we were not disappointed with our choice. A yellow background makes the devil more friendly :)
