The Art of Logo design.

    Logo design is an Art form unlike any other form of Graphics Design. It is a pure creative form of expression, that can make or break a company or site or anything that the logo is meant for.
    A good classy logo will make the company stand out, be remembered among the rest of the fish in the sea, while a crap logo will forever relegate it to mediocrity.

    Designing the perfect logo requires; born talent of the designer, loads of experince, mastery of the software tools, and quirky, think-outside-the-box attitude for the best results.

    Adobe Illustrator is the primary tool for logo design as its a vector tool and vector is what you need for logo design.
    Other vector software such as Corel Draw, the free Inskscape and even the limited vector capabilities of Photoshop can be utilized to varying degrees of success.

    AI all the way. I make better, stronger logos when I use it. Plus it’s best with Mac. Strong logos make a lasting impression. It’s vital branding tactic especially online because it attracts new customers who are generally visual. If you want ideas for your marketing your brands, visit http://leadgenerationlab.com.au :) :)

    Personally I use Inkscape for drawing everything including logos.... firstly because it is free -not just because I am cheap, but so that anyone can easily edit the files.... it is also really good... only problem is it does not seem to have native CMYK support(it has a CMYK profile, but can't save them properly from what I have read). So I need to use another tool to convert them after.
    And you are right, a logo can make or break a company.

    Hi,
    Interesting discussion here.
    I think the Art itself, the Talent and the Vision are more important factors that the software used to achieve the result.
    Do you agree?

    Agree, without clear vision and imaginations, such expensive software would go waste

    Most Graphic Design programs (for a degree in it) would like you to do Logos in Illustrator, but you can always use other things, a lot of people mastered Photoshop/ FireAlpaca to make their designs turn out about the same as it would in Illustrator.
