Due to many reasons and quality of the product many people are now switching to Mac OS especially people with a designing background like:
- Web designers
- Logo designers
- Overall graphic designers
Do prefer to use mac over other platforms.
It might be just because they wanted to change the way they work by shifting their focus to other operating system or perhaps there’s indeed an advantage of using this platform. Whatever the case is let’s not talk about that.
Instead, let’s talk about how you can create a stunning logo on your mac.
How Do I Create A Logo On My Mac?
There are actually only three major ways you can create a logo on mac.
- Third party applications
- Web based apps
Let’s talk about each one of them:
Third Party Applications
This is the most popular option when it comes to professional logo designing. If you offer logo designing services to your clients via freelancing platforms or direct outreach this is the best option hands down.
However, if you want to create a logo design for yourself and you don’t have much experience in this area we recommend you to pick either one of the two below options.
Why I have to use third party applications if I’m a professional logo designer?
There are a few reasons:
The customization options you get are a lot. You can make the logo pixel perfect and the exactly the way your customer want.
Many of the buyers want to have the source file so if they want to change the design in future even when the actual logo designer of the company (the one who created the company logo originally) is not available. Any other designer can simply be able to edit the logo if the original editable file (source file) is available.
There’s a great tool inside of mac OS that many fewer people know about. It’s called keynote. You might have heard of this great built-in software but you might not be aware that you can actually create professional looking logos inside of it in just a matter of minutes.
Here’s a little tutorial that will walk you through the process:
Web Based Apps
This solution is getting popular day by day for a few reasons:
- No need to download anything
- Mostly Free
- Many designs available to choose from
With the advent of tools like Canva and the other ones alike, they help quite a lot you in creating professional logo design from your mac.
Actually, there’s no restrictions on these tools and no need to re-learn. For example, if you were great designers on Canva using your PC computer, you can still use that same website Canva to create logos using your mac.
So we prefer using web based apps if you’re creating logos for yourself otherwise if you’re actually in a field of service provider that you must choose downloading professional logo designing tools like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
