How can I add a logo to a ggplot visualisation?

You could use the cowplot package to easily add an image to any plot made with ggplot. I used the R logo as the image that needs to be added to the plot (using magick package to read it). One advantage of using cowplot is that you can easily specify the size and position of both the plot and the image.


img <- image_read("Logo.png")

# Set the canvas where you are going to draw the plot and the image
ggdraw() +
  # Draw the plot in the canvas setting the x and y positions, which go from 0,0
  # (lower left corner) to 1,1 (upper right corner) and set the width and height of
  # the plot. It's advisable that x + width = 1 and y + height = 1, to avoid clipping 
  # the plot
  draw_plot(p,x = 0, y = 0.15, width = 1, height = 0.85) +
  # Draw image in the canvas using the same concept as for the plot. Might need to 
  # play with the x, y, width and height values to obtain the desired result
  draw_image(img,x = 0.85, y = 0.02, width = 0.15, height = 0.15)
