What does it take to create a high quality, professional-looking logo for your business? You could hire a graphic designer to create a logo. Or, you could buy Photoshop and spend a few years wondering why the learning curve is so steep. Or, you could buy an inexpensive Mac app that just does logo designs.
Logoist for Mac is one of a handful of graphic apps that specialize in logo design. It’s template drive, with judicious point and click about the only prerequisite.
The interface is straightforward. The top Toolbar lists all the Logoist tools.
Each tool has detailed controls (in the right sidebar), and the bottom displays options for Borders, Effects, Gradients, and other ways to manipulate text or shapes.
Adjustments can be made purely via point and click, with an occasional slider for more granular settings.
Logoist works in layers so you can make complex logos which are easily editable. All shapes and text can be customized with borders, effects, and patterns.
There’s also over 3,000 vector clip art images available.
A measure of good taste can be used in place of talent or experience, but the end results speak for themselves.
Logoist comes with over 100 samples which can be used as templates for your own logo design. There’s a built-in font preview so you can see effects on fonts before using the font.
Your finished logo or banner can be exported in high resolution in multiple formats commonly used for both Mac and Windows PCs.
Producing a high quality business logo takes time and experience and the right tools. Logoist gives you an option to lower the barrier to entry. Low cost. Ease of use.
