Overlap letters to make logos - one of the most used technique to combine letters for logo making. Place one letter over the other one. You can choose to leave an empty space between the letter.
Put the letters next to each other for a vertical align or one under the other for a horizontal align. The diagonal align is also a good choice.
Playfair Display Font is one of my favorite fonts for making logos. But, you can use all sorts of logo fonts like Poiret One Font or PT Mono Font as shown in the image below.

Combine letters by connecting them like a chain. In this technique we don’t just put one letter over the other, we have to unite them by going over and under.
It’s really a modern way to merge two letters together, plus this logo design looks quite professional.
In Photoshop you can create this effect using a Layer Mask to create intertwined letters.

Combine Overlap Letters with Transparency
The overlapping letters technique is one of the most used technique for combining letters.
The overlapped letters are letters placed one over the other. Earlier you saw overlapping letters with the same color and with different colors.
You can also use transparency to overlap letters by changing the opacity of the letter that is on top. You can also use a gradient and a text shadow with lower opacity.
Turn any font type into an overlapping font. It’s so easy and the result looks pretty cool!
Combine Double Letters
Duplicate the same letter two or even three times. Then, move the duplicated letter(s) up, down, left, right or on diagonal.
Create a double letter logo in a very simple way. Actually a tree letters logo in this logo design example. Use stacked letters to make an eye catching logo for your brand.
Combine Big Size Letters & Small Size Letters
Combining letters with different sizes is another creative method to make logos. Use the same font or different fonts for the letters, then simply resize one of the letters.
Add a big letter and a small letter that is placed inside the big letter or next to it.
Combine Negative Space Letters
Negative space is defined as the space around and between the subject of an image. In the case of negative space lettering, the subject is the actual letter.
To make a negative space logo, create a letter by adding negative space to a colored shape. You can even put one letter inside the other by making one of them bold and cutting the other letter from it.
The negative space logo shown in the image above can be made easily in Photoshop by using a Layer Mask.
Combine Uppercase Letters
To make a logo from letters, you can combine letters that are all uppercase.
Design a modern logo by choosing either a serif font, a sans serif font or even a cursive font. Here are some examples of 2 letter logos made with uppercase letters.
Use the uppercase letters from Merriweather Font and Playfair Display SC Font to make initial letter logos.
For creating a capital letter logo that is more playful but also modern, use cursive fonts.
Playball font is a good font choice that you can use to create an initials letters logo online. Choose this 2 letters logos for your company or brand.
To design truly unique fonts, add text decorations from Elements > Shapes > Text Tails and Ligatures.
Combine Lowercase Letters
To make lowercase logos you have to use lowercase letters. Use the same font family or combine different fonts. Overlap letters, add color gradients, text shadow, etc.
For these lowercase logos I used these free fonts: Merriweather Font, Sofia Font, Yesterday Font, Waiting for the Sunrise Font and Monsieur La Doulaise Font.

Combine Joined Fonts
The cursive fonts and the handwritten fonts are usually joined fonts, so there is no space between the letters.
You can combine letters and turn any font into a joined font. One way to join the letters is to leave no empty space between the letters.
Another way to make combined letters is to join the letters with a line. This line that connects the letters can be placed up, down or on the middle.
For the logos below, I used these free logo fonts: Bebas Neue Font & Michroma Font for the first letter logo and Ribbon Font for the second letter logo.
In the case of the third letter logo, I’ve used the Kaushan Script Font, which is also a free logo font. The letters are connected with a wavy line that has the same color as the letters and a shadow that has the same color as the background.
It’s not complicated to make a letters combination. All you have to do is to experiment with different letters, fonts, sizes, colors & transparency levels.
To make sure no one else has it, it’s better to make your own logo. Or, if you buy a logo design, try to add your personal touch by changing the colors, adding extra elements and so on.
