I’m a bit old fashioned when it comes to tools of the trade for logo design. That doesn’t mean I don’t utilize the tools & technology I have at my disposal but I generally start out with a pencil and my sketchbook before moving on to refine the logo in Illustrator.
It’s amazing what we can accomplish with technology this day in age and the speed with which we can do it. You could say my generation was the first to grow up with computers but even I didn’t get my hands on an Apple II until I was in 5th grade. I remember spending hours writing a 50+ page story on that computer, only to have it crash and lose most of the data! Ouch, I was crushed. It was an early lesson on the reliability of computers. Although we didn’t have 5 terabyte external hard drives at the time it was a learning lesson on ensuring that I backed everything up in the future. Sometimes triple backups! I’ve been using computers ever since but my generation may have been at the very forefront of the computer age. We did not have internet or apps. We did not have websites or smart phones. No, we had the big clunky stuff and that’s ok. I’ve been in with computer technology every step of the way since I was 10 years old. I now possess a 2017 Macbook Pro, iPad Pro and an iPhone.
