  3. Melanie Shellito says:

    This collection of tutorials does indeed have some cool techniques and could be very helpful when looking for a specific effect to add punch to collateral materials. But I think it’s dangerous to present these as LOGO tutorials, since Photoshop should never be the go-to software for creating a logo. Building a raster-based file for a company’s brand will only cause problems down the road and it’s very short-sighted to stick a client with a logo that can’t be used in EVERY possible application. In addition, most of the examples I see here would be far better if built appropriately in a vector program such as Illustrator. Many of the end results shown that tout the power of Photoshop could have been done beautifully as vector artwork (including all the fancy blends, gradients and dimensional stuff) while maintaining total scalability and function for print media as well as online. In short, these can be very useful tutorials, but you do a disservice to both clients and designers by presenting them as logo building tools.

  4. Molly Eckler says:

    I agree…How does a client blow these up for signage? These are beautiful but can and need to be done in vector in Illustrator for logo clients.

  23. Alek says:

    Anyone who hasn’t slept through the first hour of the first class of graphic design should be very well aware of the fact that Photoshop is NOT the tool for creating a logo. It is just as useful as Word or PowerPoint when it comes to creating a logo. You can create logos in those as well for that matter. Anyone who even consider Photoshop as a tool for that obviously doesn’t understand what a logo is and should be and I would recommend some reading on the subject of logo. It is graphic design 101, really.
