Logos, title art, icons, banners, website elements, greeting card headings, buttons, iBooks author titles, picture collages.... you name it, Logoist helps you create it! Logoist lets you design stunning images on your Mac using layers, sophisticated effects and eye-catching shaders. Logoist comes with over 3.000 vector clipart images, over 200 configureable effect presets and over 150 patterns!
- Layers -
Layers are the centerpiece of Logoist. Insert rectangles, ellipses, text, clipart and paths to create the basic shape of your image. Layers can even be combined by boolean operations like substract or add.
- Shaders -
Logoist offers sophisticated shader algorithms that allow you to create metal, glass, plastic and several other materials for your work ranging from a subtile embossed look to a glossy and reflective metal or glass appearance.
- Effects -
Assign as many effects as you like, for example inner and outer shadow, glow, blur or borders to layers. Create presets from your effect configuration to easily apply them to other layers. Combined effects with shaders in any way you like.
- Borders -
Every layer in Logoist can be bordered with either a flat color, a pattern, a gradient or even using a shader for awesome results. Add multiple borders combined with other effects to any layer if required.
- Clipart -
Logoist includes over 3.000 vector clipart images for designing your logo, heading or icon. Of course, effects and shaders can be applied to all clipart images you've added to your Logoist project.
- Patterns -
A huge collection of patterns is also included with Logoist. Every layer can be filled with a pattern. Additionaly apply effects or shaders like bevel, inner and outer shadow or glow. Patterns can also be used as borders on all layers.
- Transformations -
Text and clipart can be transformed using several built-in methods like trapezoid, pinch, ripple, wave or sheer transformations. This way, you can bend text around shapes to create impressive results.
- Easy to use -
Logoist features a well thought-out user interface which makes it easy to understand and use. Built exclusively for Mac OS X, Logoist nicely integrates all features OS X Lion offers like Versions, Autosave, Resume and Fullscreen Mode.
- Paths -
Editing paths has never been easier: Logoist comes with a sophisticated tool to edit paths including Bézier paths and straight shapes which can even be combined with other paths, clipart and text using boolean operations.
- Fonts -
Logoist features a handy font selector that previews all fonts installed on your Mac as well as a live preview of the text including all shaders and effects applied to it. This way, you can easily choose the best fitting font for your composition.
- Samples -
Logoist comes with over 100 samples you can use as templates for your own logos, headlines or banners. Furthermore, several tutorials are included teaching you how to get the most out of Logoist.
- Export -
Logoist works completely resolution independent. Export your artwork either in screen resolution or print-ready resolutions of up to 600dpi in several file formats. You can use the results in Pages, Keynote, iWeb, Microsoft Office and almost all other apps, Mac or PC.
- Native Photoshop PSD export -
Use Photoshop, Pixelmator or any other graphics app supporting the Photoshop file format to refine your logo or include it in an existing project. Logoist exports Photoshop PSD files including layer information and blending modes in up to 600 DPI.
- Technology -
Logoist uses advanced technologies from OS X to offer a flawless uninterrupted workflow. Grand Central Dispatch distributes the work evenly to all available processor cores of your Mac. Most shaders and effects work directly on your Macs graphics card by using Apples Core Image technology.
What's New in Version 1.2.3
- Exporting JPEG images fixed
- Presets view improved
- Other bug fixes
Needs another update to fix launch issues
I love this application and it's slowly improving over time but I've always had an issue with it not launching either after I haven't used it for a while or when it happens I delete the app and just reinstall it. However, that's not helping so I'm guessing another update is due very soon, I hope!
Couldn’t be happier with the app, so far it’s been a lot of fun.
BEYOND SLOW / cannot export….
the exporting problem is not fixed !! good program but alot of bugs… wish it ran smoother.
