We’re here to make great design accessible and delightful for everyone

We believe anyone can make their business, side hustle, or passion project look beautiful — even if they’re not a designer. As an AI-powered graphic design company, we’re automating design processes without taking away the creativity, vision, and fun that goes into building a brand identity.

Our story

Dawson Whitfield spent over a decade designing hundreds of logos for clients, but grew tired of the back-and-forth changes required to finalize a design. Knowing that millions of people start a business every year, he launched Looka (formerly Logojoy) in November 2016 to empower anyone to get great design quickly, at a price they could afford.

Dawson turned to machine learning to streamline the design process, and brought on co-founder Rares Crisan to expand the technology. Since launching, the logo maker has served more than 5 million people in 188 countries, generating over 10 billion custom logos and helping thousands of businesses get the branding assets they need to succeed.
