    DO NOT BUY!

    Program will not download on any computer with any operating system. Customer service is non-existent and Best Buy will not take it back due to the item being opened. The Box comes with 2 discs, one has a code on it and the other one is a font disk. The download is fine but when it asks you to register to use it comes up with an error code. Tried on 3 different computers with 3 different versions of windows and every time will come up with an error code. Emailed the company several times like the online Forum said with no response at all. Waste of $30 and it's awful that Best Buy will not return the product, they are selling software that is not usable.

    Good Only For Some People

    This product is only good if you like the built-in design features. If you actually want to design something, it's pretty useless. As is normal now days, it's sophisticated, but there's no user's manual, it's not intuitive, and the built-in "tutorial" is useless. I bought it to wrap text around a circle, something drawing programs could do 20 years ago, but I couldn't find a dropdown menu to do so. (I tried to do it in MS Powerpoint, but it had the same drawbacks mentioned.) The tutorial showed me an example of following a wavy line, but after selecting the tutorial, there was no tutorial.

    Not Worth The Money

    I bought this program because the packaging indicated that it would do everything Adobe Illustrator does. Problems showed up as soon as I opened the box and installed it. It said the serial key was invalid. I had to call the 800 # on the box and finally they issued me a different key. After I activated the program, it would only let me use certain features without purchasing an "upgrade" The box specified that it was the entire program. Files are not compatible with Illustrator :( Not really full vector graphics.

    Fantastic Program for Ideas and Ease of Use

    I have used an older version of the same software a long time ago. I am glad to see that it is just as easy to make unique, yet amazing logos. The GUI takes a little getting used to, if you are used to program such as Illustrator or Inkscape, this will feel real different and at first seems limited in what you can do. However, if you dig into the program a little deeper, you will find how easy it is to create a fantastic and unique yet clean logo. Overall a great product for a novice, if you are a pro illustrator or graphic artist, this program will feel limited and may not be for you.

    Very easy to use and fun

    This software is easy to use and fun to use. Still, it was very practical and had enough samples to give me plenty of ideas for my high-tech training business. I can imagine that not everyone will be able to use some of the samples to build logos, but I think that number will be in a small minority. If you have a small business and would like to start out with a simple logo, give this software a shot. As you grow and start making millions, you can then afford a fancy PR company and maybe come up with something better, but this will give you a very good start until then. Good luck and have fun playing around with it.

    My Poor Choice

    Initially purchased for a task in design. I found it difficult to use and any attempts to find help in the product went the same way. I decided this was not what I was looking for and went to the slightly more expensive Graphic Studio Design product. I found the two products to be identical only name difference. This product also had a major problem in that any design was not saved. Contacting the product help desk revealed that an updated version was available which solved the issue.

    Bought this about 3 months ago. Tried to use it again after not using it for a bit. It would save my work but when I tried to open it again it is telling me that I need to register my product. I had already done that. Now it will not except the registration number I have. Tried to contact support. No phone number. No reply from them. Stay away from this one.

    Logo Design program-good for beginner

    This program delivers just what it says, some great looking logos that you can manipulate. It uses it's own vector power so you can customize things. It is not even close to what Illustrator can do; however, it will do the job of logos. You can use your own photos or whatever and use the vector part of the program to turn it into your own design. It's a great deal for what it can do.

    A good first step if you want to get into this field. I’m an Engraver. It a good teaching tool for my beginner employee. It’s helped me explain the basics and get him interested in this as a career, also helps me refresh my memory on certain aspects of logos & design. It’s. Limited in scope, buts its, i think for beginners.

    Bought the program with low expectation, I mean how much can you do with a program that's about $30 bucks? Well I was blown away by how many things this program allows you to do! I was able to make my logo how I wanted in short amount of time. If you are a regular Joe just like me it's great! If your a designer then this might not be for you.

    When I installed this on my computer and started to work with it, it has limited images to use for logo design. When you try to manipulate the image it is very difficult to center the image and what not. Maybe I need more practice but I feel that this isn't what I was hoping for. Guess it wouldn't be so bad if I had more time but still I think something else is what I will need for the projects I am working on.

    I have never done a logo but being in business for 10 years I decided to make one. It came out good but I didn't like a lot of the templates. It wasn't easy to navigate and in order for me to take advantage of the software I would need to take a class. The bonus business card program isn't very user friendly either.

    Great for beginner and fairly easy to understand and use for getting the idea down, Final Logo design is still best done by graphics designer. However, sometimes its much easier to get the concept down to be better to relay your idea to that expert. I used it and it server my intent and would do it again.

    The product has basic designs that you can work with, but its not good if you want to create one from scratch. The editing tools are basic and worst, its not that easy or intuitive to use. You are better off investing more and get something like adobe photoshop.

    The program was very easy to install and I was impressed with how simple it was for me to use the templates and other tools to design a original logo. I really loved the Vector grapic option which allowed me to automatically have a Logo to send to my mktg resources!

    I purchased this software to assist my employer in creating a new logo and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of content that's included. The platform is a little confusing for the average user, but overall it's a good product!

    I was looking for software with more capabilities and features. There's plenty options for clipart but you cannot create design your own clipart/logo. So, you cannot truly personalize your logo but there are so many ways to use the software to create other projects.

    I have found this program to be non-intuitive. It needs some kind of documentation to give the user an idea of what it is capable of. Relying on help screens to navigate the intricasies of the software is like not being able to see the Forrest for the trees.

    This product is good (not great) for beginners that needs idea to make logos for their needs. The program itself is sometimes difficult to use/navigate and the "HELP" is not so good. Overall it is so-so for the cost of the program.
