EximiousSoft Logo Designer is a drawing application specifically aimed to create logos. It includes a collection of nice templates and a huge clipart library.
The design of the interface is very similar to that of Microsoft Office 2007. In fact, it even allows using four different Office 2007 styles as masks. It uses a ribbon where most commands are distributed in three tabs: drawing, design and view. The buttons and controls look exactly the same as in Office. All these similarities will make Office users feel completely at ease.
When you start the application or whenever you want to create a new logo, the program will let you select one of the multiple templates. This is a valuable option for people with poor design skills; however, it will cost you originality. So, perhaps you would like to create your logo from scratch. Although some free-hand tools and custom shapes are available, there is an impressive library of clipart shapes. Once drawn on the canvas, these elements can be modified by adding shadows, reflections, textures, transparency and gradient fills.
Your projects can be saved as independent files, which you can load later to continue working or create new logos. The logos as such can be exported to several picture formats, but this option is not available in the trial version. An additional way to share your images is to print them directly.
In general, EximiousSoft Logo Designer is a nice application. In my opinion, the real value is not the program itself because it does not offer any function that is not present in Microsoft Word. Its merit is the result of providing only those functions that are necessary to create a logo, but above all, it includes such a large collection of useful artwork.
- It is easy to use.
- It allows using templates.
- It includes a huge artwork library.
- The trial version does not allow to export images.
- You can use Microsoft Word for similar results.
