Before we get too far into things, we have to set one thing straight – Adobe Illustrator is almost ALWAYS the ONLY program you should be using to design your own logo.
Why? There are several reasons that set Illustrator apart from the rest (and we don’t have all day here), but the short answer is because Illustrator can create vector graphics. Vector graphics can easily be edited and they can be resized as large or as small as you could ever want without losing image resolution or becoming pixelated.
Pretty much Illustrator and vector graphics are THE BOMB. And it’s also the best and most professional way to create a logo.
