CNET 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!"
Version: The Logo Creator 6.8
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.
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!
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."
Version: The Logo Creator 6.8
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.
New version is horrible. Past versions better.
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.
