The Batman—also known as the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, or the World’s Greatest Detective—has been around since the mid-1900s and still is one of the most widely recognized superhero in the comic industry. He started out in 1939, but he still holds a special place to all comic book lovers in the world.
With his billionaire, alter ego, Bruce Wayne, his parents were shot right in front of him when he was still a boy. He was raised and taken care of by his butler, Alfred Pennyworth, who acted as his father figure as he was growing up. Eventually, he decided to use his intelligence and wealth to take on criminals and villains as Batman.

Things to Consider When Making a Logo
- Make your logo simple and don’t put too much details on it. If possible, make one that works even with black or gray scale.
- Think about your audience. Make a logo that can be appreciated by different people.
- Never copy from another company’s design. Make your own unique logo.
- Don’t just make a logo based on how you feel it should look, make sure your logo can be explained and understood.
- Play with different fonts but never use Comic Sans. And if using more than just one font, two is the maximum number of fonts in a logo.
