My next door neighbor and her husband started their own home business last year. So far, it’s going well. At my urging, they switched from a Windows PC to a Mac, and so far I haven’t had to fix much. Until last week.
They asked me if I could design a logo for their business, since I have Photoshop on my Mac. I gave them a dozen different designs and they were thrilled. But I didn’t use Photoshop.
Point And Click Logo Design
Logo design for big business usually costs a lot of money. There’s research to be done, perhaps a design competition, and the result should be a logo that’ll last for many years.
Or, using a Mac and a simple vector graphic tool called Logo Design Studio Pro, and you can create a credible logo in minutes.
That’s right. Minutes. An hour if you want to play around with different designs and color styles.
For a tiny fraction of the cost of using Photoshop, or worse, hiring a graphic designer, an attractive logo can be delivered in true Mac fashion—point and click.
Design Without A Designer
Logo Design Studio Pro is a vector drawing tool that comes with over 500 professionally designed templates and over 1,300 editable logo objects.
You’re not so much drawing a logo design as you are selecting the pieces that make up an attractive logo design. Start with a template and add text, change color, manipulate the design by dragging and tugging object handles.
Once you’ve selected a template design, simply add the text you want to match. Text can be added to any line or shape, even filling in shapes. Apply over 100 filters and effects so that the end result is a truly unique design—minus the time and expense.
While I can’t speak from experience as a designer, I can tell you that creating an attractive, professional looking logo design is about as easy as it can get. Any Mac user who can point and click can create a stunning logo.
Controls and tools are simple and self explanatory, even for Mac design neophytes. The drawing tools are simple. Pointer. Painter. Brush. Text. Objects. Magnifying glass.
Grab a template design, drop the text tool on the pre-designed text, change the text to your company’s name, modify colors to match the company, and you’re mostly done.
Logo Design Studio Pro is actually easier to use, and takes less time to create a credible logo, than it does to install Adobe Photoshop or describe your idea of a logo to a graphic designer. Seriously.
The vector based drawings can be exported in a variety of files that will make your printer happy. Photoshop designers will decry the use of such point and click tools for professional work, but the results will speak for themselves. Any small business that needs a unique, attractive logo can get many within an hour.
