You can easily make a custom shape out of an icon or logo that will be reusable whenever you like. Just select the icon or logo with the Magic Wand tool (nested under the Quick Selection tool [W] in the Toolbar). Once the selection is active, open the Paths panel (Window>Paths). Click on the top-right “hamburger menu,” and choose Make Work Path. In the resulting dialog, set the Tolerance to 2.0 pixels (use a higher number for a more complex image). Click OK, and it will create a new work path for you in the Paths panel. If you need to clean up the path, use the Pen tool (P) and Path Selection tools (A). 

Now, choose Edit>Define Custom Shape, give it a name, and click OK. The custom shape will be added to the Custom Shape Picker and ready for you to use anytime with the Custom Shape tool (nested under the Rectangle tool [U] in the Toolbar). After you draw your custom shape, you can also easily add a fill and stroke color of your choosing.
