Ratings and Reviews
Great Potential Lacks Intuitive Design
This app looks to be a favorite for everything to create and build great graphics until you open it and are confused with layouts. Starting a new logo design, one is greeted with some great predesigned layouts for colorful greeting cards, logos, and business cards. If you want to make a creative greeting card this may be your program of choice. This program is bursting with great effects, and I love the export options.
However, when creating a unique logo (the intended focus of this software), one is continually looking for resources that are not there or limiting. Example: Missing a Clip Art dialog box for specific art via type (currently a drop-down and users have to sift), outline images only add effects to the outlines while filling an outline image may not be an option without adding some an editable shape behind it. Can I import additional icons, textures, and graphics?
Maybe it is because I am new to this product, but with all the neat assets I expected more interactive access. It could be I just want this product to be more than I am experiencing. I work with many graphics programs and see this one as not bad, but requires a bit of time to learn how to create and manipulate when building from scratch. Logoists3 is a quirky program with confusing limitations.
A significant improvement on an already great app.
I am an avid user of Logoist 2. I use it almost daily at work to create motion graphic concepts and visualizations for the editors of my multimedia team. I’ve always found the feature set to be way more robust than anything I use it for, but not to the point where it has hindered my daily use. This app is accessible to beginners and a pretty powerful tool for those with a deeper skill set. It’s not going to replace Adobe illustrator, nor is it intended to. This is a useful tool with many great features that anyone can use out of the box. Time spent with it will be rewarded with the realization and understanding of more adavanced concepts and features.
Everything that I loved about LOGOIST 2 has been improved upon and I am glad to see that no noticeable features were removed. This is strictly an improved version of an already solid app. I appreciate the darker workspace, which is easier on the eyes, and the added customization tools. If you manage to see this at the kick off price of $15, stop reading and just get it now. It would still be worth the full price, but at half off this is a no-brainer.
Good job, Synium Software.
Extreeemly limited but worth $15
After my first experience with Logoist it strikes me as a cross between the Print Shop world and the professional graphics world. It’s got lots of pre-made quick pick goodies, but it lacks common features like type on a path or type on a shape (like around a circle). I’m sure I’ll find $15 worth of time saving quickies to use but I wouldn’t put it in the same class as the other inexpensive vector apps I have, like Graphic, Creator Express, etc. The odd, “type your text in a hidden box in the sidebar instead of where you see it” approach is a primitive, uncomfortable method that removes the feel of hands-on control of type from the equation. I’m an old Freehand user that is still looking for something that just has three of it’s features: a natural drawing pen, aligning of bezier anchors/control points, and one-click reorientation of text on a path. I somewhat blindly buy these cheap apps as part of that search and also to support the developers. This is not what I’m looking for, but it is a very clean program that I would recommend for novices that need ease of use in exchange for even slightly-beyond-the-basic features. The developers did a good job creating a nice program at a very reasonable price.
