ABOUT SYNIUM

A 20-person team based in Mainz, Germany, is passionate about developing software for Mac, iPhone, and iPad to offer our customers the best apps out there. They started developing for Mac OS 8 in 1998 and have been creating Mac software ever since. In 2005 the company was named “Synium Software GmbH “. Their first product, genealogy software MacFamilyTree, was followed by numerous other apps. They refrain from ported Windows applications and cross-platform development because they firmly believe that software will only feel great to use if it has been developed for a specific platform, and is therefore able to take advantage of the latest technologies.

Logoist 3 has a beautiful interface and all features are easily found. Tons of clipart is available, though they all are in black. However any clipart image can be changed to any color needed to match your creation.

LOGOIST 3 FEATURES

  • Combine vector artwork with pixel artwork – for example, for shiny surfaces, depth-of-field and bokeh effects
  • Non-destructive boolean operations: create great designs by combining simple shapes
  • Innovative grouping feature to structure larger projects
  • Edit gradients, patterns, text letter configurations and paths directly on the canvas for perfect accuracy

One new feature is the 1-2-3 logo creation which creates a nice togo in three easy steps. After entering the name and sub-title a full list is created with automatically created designs.  The other presets presented in the interface are Card, Photo, Business Card and the Showcase. The templates available are a bit limited really. Of course any of these presets can be adapted to your wishes, still I wish the listing was longer.

GENERATORS

With Logoist it takes just a few easy clicks to add soft snowfall, grass, tree branches, flames or other elements to your design. Refine your art with jags, cracks, tears, rubber stamp effects and many more – it’s never been easier to create high-quality images in a matter of seconds. Just check the image below, and see the great created image.

 

Working with Logoist 3 is about moving objects around, not real creative vector drawing. Vector points editing is not possible. Export options for your work is versatile as it provides EPS, PDF, or SVG formats and others.

New opened files or images are set basic to 500×500 pixels, the Canvas button at the bottom of the interface gives you opportunity to change and set a wanted size.
Export setting is set to a density at 72dpi –though this will keep the created images file size small, it is insufficient for printing.
You can set the pixel density to any value for export however for export.

 

VERDICT

If you are looking for an easy to use logo creation tool, Logoist is your number one pick. Its versatile and offers a great interface and styles ready to be adjusted to your liking. No real skills needed, just click, add and adjust to finish your image for export. I like playing with Logoist as it sets no borders to your creative input apart from not being a draw tool which is better for most users really. If there is a minor point to mention it is the minimal number of presets available.
You can use the basic idea of the preset and start from there for your personal touch. Its snappy, and stable as does it support macOS Mojave right now in version 3. Have a go at the tryout version before you make up your mind, I like it!
