Logo design is a very difficult skill to master, encapsulating a company’s ethics and ethos in a simple easy to remember graphic image, that looks great on the web as well as in print can take even the best graphic designer years to master.

Having the right tools for the job should also be of primary concern when it comes to logo design. It is fairly pointless creating a logo in bitmap-based software such as Adobe Photoshop or Affinity Photo unless you are very confident that the logo you design will not be used at large sizes, such as on posters or billboards.

The reason for this is that bitmap images are made up of pixels and when a pixel-based image is enlarged the individual pixels that make up the image are also enlarged creating undesirable, jagged, blurry edges. This does not happen with vector-based images as the software uses mathematical descriptions to ensure that lines and curves will always render at the optimum resolution.

For many years the only realistic choice for creating professional vector images and logos was Adobe Illustrator. That is until Serif Software released Affinity Designer, breaking Adobe’s stranglehold on professional-grade design software forever.
