Keep Dalle from including text

Hey all,

I’m trying to make some potential logos, but text is always included (and as we know Dalle text tends to be gibberish). As much as I say, “The picture has no text” or “there are no words in the logo” Dalle always seems to want them in there anyway. Does anyone have prompt strategies for excluding text?

Negative prompts are tricky, so I would recommend not mentioning the word “word”, and instead switch the word “logo” to “symbol”, “emblem”, or “icon”, as those are less closely related to “text”

What’s your prompt look like so far?

“A simple, icon for a company that builds AI models for companies to give their data a better view”

(slightly paraphrased to keep some things private)

I’ve switched to Icon because that provides slightly better results (1/4 doesn’t have text)


Might add “digital art”… “marketing materials” … “simple icon…”

Good luck!


Well that didn’t work haha.,… the graphic icon on the far right isn’t bad, tho…

I’ll see if I can come up with a better solution and get back to you…

You’re right it’s not bad! Thanks for taking a crack at this!

I think it’s taking the words “logo” and “icon” to heart, so maybe try without…

This person went through something similar, it seems…

ETA: Although he did use “logo” in the later attempts… I wonder if putting what you want (which is hard because you want the creative ideas) in front of the prompt and logo / icon at the very end…I’m pretty sure stuff at the start of the prompt gets valued more, but I may be wrong…

ETA2: Yeah, looks a little better… I would experiment with word placement…
