Layers are the centerpiece of Logoist. Insert rectangles, ellipses, text, clipart and paths to create the basic shape of your image. Layers can even be combined by boolean operations like substract or add.
Logoist offers sophisticated shader algorithms that allow you to create metal, glass, plastic and several other materials for your work ranging from a subtile embossed look to a glossy and reflective metal or glass appearance.
Assign as many effects as you like, for example inner and outer shadow, glow, blur or borders to layers. Create presets from your effect configuration to easily apply them to other layers. Combined effects with shaders in any way you like.
Every layer in Logoist can be bordered with either a flat color, a pattern, a gradient or even using a shader for awesome results. Add multiple borders combined with other effects to any layer if required.
Logoist includes over 3.000 vector clipart images for designing your logo, heading or icon. Of course, effects and shaders can be applied to all clipart images you’ve added to your Logoist project.
A huge collection of patterns is also included with Logoist. Every layer can be filled with a pattern. Additionaly apply effects or shaders like bevel, inner and outer shadow or glow. Patterns can also be used as borders on all layers.
Text and clipart can be transformed using several built-in methods like trapezoid, pinch, ripple, wave or sheer transformations. This way, you can bend text around shapes to create impressive results.
• Easy to use
Logoist features a well thought-out user interface which makes it easy to understand and use. Built exclusively for Mac OS X, Logoist nicely integrates all features OS X Lion offers like Versions, Autosave, Resume and Fullscreen Mode.
Editing paths has never been easier: Logoist comes with a sophisticated tool to edit paths including Bézier paths and straight shapes which can even be combined with other paths, clipart and text using boolean operations.
Logoist features a handy font selector that previews all fonts installed on your Mac as well as a live preview of the text including all shaders and effects applied to it. This way, you can easily choose the best fitting font for your composition.
Logoist comes with over 100 samples you can use as templates for your own logos, headlines or banners. Furthermore, several tutorials are included teaching you how to get the most out of Logoist.
Logoist works completely resolution independent. Export your artwork either in screen resolution or print-ready resolutions of up to 600dpi in several file formats. You can use the results in Pages, Keynote, iWeb, Microsoft Office and almost all other apps, Mac or PC.
• Native Photoshop PSD export
Use Photoshop, Pixelmator or any other graphics app supporting the Photoshop file format to refine your logo or include it in an existing project. Logoist exports Photoshop PSD files including layer information and blending modes in up to 600 DPI.
Logoist uses advanced technologies from OS X to offer a flawless uninterrupted workflow. Grand Central Dispatch distributes the work evenly to all available processor cores of your Mac. Most shaders and effects work directly on your Macs graphics card by using Apples Core Image technology.
• Ready for OS X Mountain Lion
Logoist already supports OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion offering iCloud Document Storage for automatically saving your Logoist documents in the cloud and syncing them to all your Macs. Furthermore, Logoist uses the Share Sheets feature from Mountain Lion allowing you to mail your work to your colleagues or post them on Twitter, Flickr or Facebook directly from Logoist.
Logoist requires Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is fully supported. It fully makes use of 64 bit capable processors found in all recent Macs but also runs on older 32 bit based Macs.

Mendel Kucharzeck of Avis Nocturna Speaks…
1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?
It is common that you spent hours in graphics apps to get a nice and unique effect, for example glass text, right. In Logoist, it is just a few clicks away. The best thing is that all effects are completely configureable to adjust them to your personal taste and your current project.
2 Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?
Simple tasks require so much effort in common graphics apps, that had to change and it did with the arrival of Logoist in the Mac App Store.
3 What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac and/or iOS platforms?
Mac users are spoiled. They demand eye-catching apps, great features at a reasonable price. Users push developers into making great products!
4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?
Simply add a few layers, select presets for these layers to get a first impression of the powerful features.
5 What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?
For well-written software, OS upgrades are mostly a non-issue. Don’t write bad code and test early with beta OS releases.
6 What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?
Despite having a horrible user interface I have to say that it is Cinema 4D by Maxon. Never saw a software this powerful.
7 What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?
Version 1.1 will be available in August bringing background presets, flames filter, better path handling and maybe video tutorials.
8 What’s your upgrade policy?
Free upgrades in the foreseeable future (definitely not in the next 2-3 years!)
9 What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?
The question I receive the most is that how the sample documents are created. Look closely at the layer list at the right of the main window. Check each layer and the associated effects to get a hang to how you can create your own effect combinations.
