"Create a professional logo in minutes."

Overview

Creating logos and banners will become a really easy and enjoyable task with Logo Design Studio. It has loads of features such as preset templates to work on and edit, thousands of graphic objects and tools to combine and produce stunning results, stunning effects that can change the whole look of your work as well as a slogan library with many catchphrases to use in your logos. When you finish your work just save it and print in the desired resolution, which can reach up to 600dpi.

Installation

When you launch the installer you won’t see the typical grey installation window that appears almost every time you install a product, but instead a colorful window will appear first, asking you if you want to install this program, visit its homepage, view other products or register it. When you click to install Logo Design Studio a window with a blue background will open that will guide you through the simple steps to install LDS. Throughout those steps you will have to type your name and company’s name (you can leave that one blank) and then choose if you want to install additional fonts included in the package. Main installation will take a while before it finishes because of the huge amount of files it has to extract.

Supported operating systems are Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Interface

When you open the program you can start a blank project or load a saved one from the window that opens. You can also choose one of the categories shown on the left pane and view its templates. You can use any of those templates in your project.

The workspace opens as a new window when you load or create a project. Its interface is quite similar to MS Paint, but with far more options and features. There is a ruler on the top and left side of the editing area for precise measuring. On the left side there are three tabs that expand when you hover over them: Objects, Logo Content & Info and Taglines.

Pros

There are over 1500 logo templates included so that you don’t have to begin from scratch. Added to that are thousands of graphics like spheres, shapes, images, signs and flags to use in your project and make a completely unique logo. To make it more modern you can add special effects such as shadows and blurs, and for the finishing touch you can pick one of many taglines that exist in the program and add it in the logo, using a suitable font and color. When you’re done, you can save this logo in many popular image formats: JPEG, TIFF, GIF, PNG, WMF, BMP and PDF. Or you can print it instead in high resolution, with no quality loss.

Cons

In the product’s homepage you can’t find Logo Design Studio 4 as a downloadable trial, but only version 3.5.2. Version 4 is only available to buy.

Alternatives
