Creating A Logo

If you decide you want to create a logo for yourself and aren't into the drawing phase(s) and instead would just like to jump straight into a design software, there are a few options you can look at to create your logo. Depending on your budget and your skillset, here are some options you can look at.

Logo Design Software

Option 1: Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is the industry standard for vector drawing programs. It's the most widely used program in Tech Schools. It is the most compatable with other design programs such as Adobe's Photoshop, and also has the most reference books to learn from. The down side is it costs about $700. (About half that if you are a student and can get it at a student discount.)

Option 2: Corel Draw

According to many review forums I've read, Corel Draw is preferred to Adobe Illustrator. Although, it lacks a lot of the effects of Illustrator, many think it is much easier to use. Corel Draw is also used in some professional environments and is still taught at some tech schools.

Option 3: Logo Creator / Logo Design Studio

I don't know if you've ever come across these two relatively inexpensive softwares. Logo Design Studio and The Logo Creator might be all right toys for the children to play with, but not really useful when it comes to creating original designs. The upside is their affiliate programs pay a 40% commission (for Logo Design Studio) and 50% commission (for the Logo Creator).
