Editors' Review

The Logo Creator for Mac is an app that produces logo images, watermarks, letterhead, and other advertising graphics. Priced at $37 for a licensed copy, The Logo Creator for Mac is available from the publisher and a number of other download locations.

The interface of The Logo Creator for Mac is easy to work with and mostly intuitive. You start with more than 200 templates that can be customized, or you can create an image from scratch if you have the inspiration and skills. On top of the basic image, you can add one or more of the 300 elements that enhance the image. You can also import graphics and pictures to your design. While simple logos are relatively easy to create, you can create more-complex images with The Logo Creator for Mac with more work. The drag-and-drop interface is easy to work with, and the palette for colors and text is simple. All images produced by The Logo Creator for Mac are license-free so you can sell or give them away.

We used The Logo Creator for Mac to create a mix of logos, letterhead, and business cards for a couple of fictitious businesses. In all cases, The Logo Creator for Mac was easy to work with, and just playing around with templates and add-ons gave us some inspiration. While these types of logos won't be a match for professional graphic artists, for many people this is all they need to establish an identity.

"The new version is beautiful!"

April 04, 2014  |  By codySly

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 6.8.0

Pros

This new version is by far the best that Laughingbird has come out with. The new Add-on packages are terrific. I love the Business Card Creator add on set.

Cons

No vector output but laughingbird has a trick to this. The website mentions how to get around this.
Other than that... this software is solid!

Summary

Marc is a great guy! Somebody reviewed here and said he never answers. I always get help from him. he's also got a forum and a huge Facebook following. he posts everyday. there's nothing about Laughingbird software that's bad :)

My humbel opinion

"The new version is useless."

March 21, 2014  |  By SheSheFun

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 6.8.0

Pros

Would be great if the new version did not freeze and was not so slow. Past versions were great to sue if you don't want to use Photoshop and just want to design simple things.

Cons

New version is horrible. Past versions better.

Summary

What I really hate about this software is that the owner, Marc Sylvester NEVER EVER answers customers inquiries or complaints. It's a great software (the older version) as a lite version of Photoshop, basically.
I use it all the time, but the new version 6.8 is totally useless and I can't access my old version.

"Extremely limited."

April 01, 2009  |  By csherman1

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 5.2

Pros

Ease of use.

Cons

Can only move selected objects - cannot resize.
If using imported graphic, can only place and move object - can't resize, or manipulate in any way.
Very simple!

Summary

If you want to use one of the pre-designed templates and just change colors and fonts, this is great. For anything more sophisticated, it's too limited. I was hoping for a simple alternative to Photoshop, which this is, but it's just too basic for my needs.

"This is garbage"

September 22, 2004  |  By siles7

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I bought the product and loaded it. Since I spent $40, I went to the web site to see if there were any updates and it said that there was a "free" one, very clearly stated. I downlaoded a demo version that made the version I purchased unusable. I left a message and two emails for the "creator" and have not had a reply. By the way, it doesn't work very well either. It crashed pretty regular on 10.3.5. Stay away from this garbage

"Not a bad little app"

May 01, 2004  |  By levinedr

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
While far from a full-fledge design tool, this is a useful and easy to use app for non-professionals who want to come up with a logo for their own small business. Coming up with your own logo could save your hundreds to several thousand dollars. Yes, I wish it were smoother and faster. Yes I wish MacWare would update it. Yes I wish there were online additional logos. But, it is preety cheap and maybe that should limit my expectations.

"DO NOT BUY THIS..."

February 28, 2004  |  By StrikeOut

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It's a trap. It just doesn't work very well. The application looks slick (graphics will do that. Even the box looks attractive. But it just doesn't work very well considering it's a 3.0 release. Worse yet, it's not a Cocoa app. It's written in Director and is slooooooowwww.

How about stability? The box it came in is more stable. And more useful. Someone went to a lot of trouble to create a pseudo-application for Macs that looks cool, but creating an app in Director is a shortcut from Cocoa or anything else. It's non-intuitive, buggy (crashes regularly on both my Macs), and not worth this kind of money. You're better off buying a couple of books with a few hundred colorful logos and then use Graphic Converter to "recreate" those logos instead. For the same money you'll have a couple of good books, and a very good graphics application.

I think there's a market for this kind of thing, though. Hey, I paid for an attractive box, right? You can do the same thing in Photoshop but you need about $700 and talent and time. The whole idea of an application like this is to help you with the talent part at a lower price. Unfortunately, you'll waste your money and still have no talent.

Logo Creator is $39.95 at CompUSA. I'll let you have my copy at half that price.

"Arrgh."

 |  Version: The Logo Creator 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Beachballs . . . totally non-intuitive GUI design. It further annoys me by placing a Windows-like shortcut to the app on my Desktop. No thanks.

/me throws in trash.
