How to Change Logo in Magento 2 [2024 Updated]

As soon as applying the Magento 2 platform for your online store, one of the first things you may want to do is to change the Magento 2 default logo in the header, and upload a favicon for the browser. Uploading your own logo will make the store more professional and more reliable in the customer’s mind. Especially, the business logo will help you increase the awareness of your brand significantly by differentiating your website from the others.

In the previous tutorial, I discussed changing the Email logo to help you with customizing your emails. So what about the logo of the brand on the website, you may ask? That is why today’s topic is about how to change the logo in Magento 2 via 3 steps.

The size and location of the logo in the header are determined by the store’s theme. Your logo can be saved as either a GIF, PNG, JPG, or SVG file type, and uploaded from the Admin of your store. The default Magento logo in the sample data is an SVG file, which is a scalable XML-based vector graphic format.

How to Change Logo Store Logo

The logo image resides in the following location on the server. Any image file by that name and at that location is used as the theme logo.

Path: app/design/frontend/[vendor]/[theme]/web/images/logo.svg

Or app/design/vendor/magento/theme-frontend-luma/web/images/ then replaced it with a png named logo.svg

If you don’t know the size of the logo, or any other image that is used in your theme, open the page in a browser, right-click the image, and inspect the element.

In addition to the logo in the header, your logo also appears on email templates and on PDF invoices and other sales documents. The logos used for email templates and invoices have different size requirements, and must be uploaded separately.

Magento 2.0

  • On the Admin sidebar, click on Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.
  • In the panel on the left under General choose Design.
  • If you have multiple stores or views, set Store View in the upper-left corner to the view where the configuration applies. Then, clear the checkbox after each field so new values can be entered.
  • Expand the Header section. Then, do the following:
