Design a new logo in minutes using the flexible design tools of Logo Design Studio Lite. Easily choose from over 110 pre-designed logo templates, or start from scratch using over 400 premium logo-centric vector graphics and shapes to jumpstart your creativity. Then add or change text, shapes, color gradients and more to get your look right.

All 400+ vector graphics are included in SVG format. SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) allow you to fully edit each object to make unique new looks...a creative advantage no other application includes.

Vector design tools allow you to scale logos to any size without losing their sharpness and clarity, and import and export SVG files that remain fully editable by Logo Design Studio Lite or any other vector editor. You can even make your logo background transparent to easily blend in on any web or print-based project.

Customer Reviews

Cool, handy app! I like it.

I like this program, but agree that you need to learn it. For example, I was frustrated trying to edit text as I keep goint to the "A" in the toolbox and nothing would work. Then I discovered you simply double click the text box with the arrow tool. Once you discover how to do things, its a pretty cool and handy app. I would suggest a more detailed help section keeping in mind that people tend to try to do things as they would in Illustrator. This program is not so cluttered and clumsy as many "professional" and very expensive drawing apps have become. The templates provide a great starting point for logos and the objects library is stylish. I love the access to Apple's cocoa graphic filters. Here's a tip: If you want to do a drop shadow on text without changing it to bezier curves, use the fonts pallet in the program (which is Apple's) and the controls for opacity, blur, offset and angle are right at the top. A plus is that exported pdf is editable in Illustrator. It may be a tab buggy, but hopefully that will be worked on. I did not have too much trouble.

Lite version is great for just a few logo needs!

I found this program useful and easy to use. Despite what other reviewers said, it DOES allow you to export to a wide variety of formats including .bmp, .jpg, .png, .pdf and more. You just have to "export" rather than use "Save as..." to enable that feature. I did find in using it that one time everything locked up and I thought it had "frozen" - but it turned out I had simply accidently "locked" the editing function. I simply clicked on the "lock" icon again and it unlocked it. So, you need to learn how to use this program to use it properly. Seems to me a great price when you can import your own graphics, and not have to buy 1,000 of their in the much more expensive "full program" - which seems more for semi-professional designers, as opposed to this Lite version which is PERFECT for someone like me who just needs to make two or three logos for a school or community group once in awhile.

$2 to try it, Sign me up! The app store is filled with Junk, but this is not one...

No problems so far. For $2, people loose more money on the App store everyday buying stupid or one time use apps. Follow your mind, if you are interested, get it and try it. I am not sure what computer other are using, by mine is a 2011 mini… Lion has introduced a lot of bugs with other software, but I am for the most part trouble free… Though, I do most of my work on a PC… This app allows me to try this software before I go purchase a retail version… For the most part, I have seen reviews for both the mac and pc where this slowed down users computers…. Again, I am not sure what environment they are using theirs in…
