Today I’m going to review DesignEvo, a cloud based graphics design software developed by PearlMountain Limited that will let you design custom logos for your business.
About The Company
The company that developed DesignEvo is PearlMountain Limited, the same company that created FotoJet Collage Maker, so they are really not new in the graphics software industry, The company has actually been existing for nearly 10 years now, and has been involved in numerous graphics design software development and is actually one of the respectable graphics software developer today.
What Is DesignEvo
As what I’ve said a while ago, DesignEvo is a cloud-based application that lets you create logos with ease. This is actually a nice application as it comes loaded with more than 3,000 logo design templates which can be utilized to help small businesses, startups, as well as individual business owners to create professionally designed logo with just a few clicks.
DesignEvo was just launched around August 2017 last year by the way, but as of today, they already have thousands of people using this web-based application
Inside The Software
The nice thing about DesignEvo is its free to join, and once you’re inside your account, you can start creating designs immediately. Just click the “”Make a Free Logo” to start the process
To create a design, you can start from a blank canvas or you can choose from the several templates that they provide. There are lots of templates to choose from and well organized according to category that you can see on the left side of your screen
In this example, I chose a template. It will then ask you the company name and slogan (optional). Just fill it out and click “Get Started” when done.
After that, the main design will load and you can start editing your logo. DesignEvo also comes with pre-loaded resources that can help you with the design process such as icons, text fonts, and shapes, and all these you can find at the left side of the design canvas
Below are some of the icons that you can choose. There are actually thousands of icons available but you can easily find the icon you want by typing a keyword on the search bar
DesignEvo also comes with several font types that you can choose from that can make your texts more lively
Aside from that, the application has several available shapes that you can utilize on your design. And these are organized per category as well, making it easier to look for whatever shape you need
Below is the result of my quick use of DesignEvo
Once you’re done with your design, they have a “Preview” feature which generates mock ups for you which is really cool since you can visualize your design on different scenarios. You can see the preview of my design below.
And once you think you’re design is already good to go, you can already download it. You actually have 3 choices and one of the choices is free download but it has low resolution and the background is not transparent
Also, here’s a video I grabbed from their website which gives you a quick overview on how to use DesignEvo
What I Like About DesignEvo
Easy to Use
One of the things I like about DesignEvo is its ease of use,, which is really a huge plus and you don’t need a lot of technical skills to use this app. Aside from that, I really like the interface because it’s very intuitive and the templates and graphics resources are well organized so it’s really easy to find what you are looking for
Lots of Graphics Resources
Another great feature of this product is the available graphics resources as they have a massive library of fonts, design templates, and icons which can really help you especially if you are challenged creatively.
Unlike some graphics application such as Photoshop, DesignEvo is cloud-based, which means you don’t need to install complex software in order to use the product. As long as you have internet connection, you will be able to access your account ad work from anywhere.
What I Don’t Like
Cannot upload custom fonts
The only thing I noticed that could be improved on DesignEvo is that at the moment, you cannot import custom fonts and I hope they will be able to add this feature in future updates
DesignEvo lets you use the application and access all of its features for free, you can also download your design for free but with limitations and lower resolution.
But if you will need higher resolution or transparent background, you can see below the pricing structure for premium design downloads
And I guess that wraps up my review. DesignEvo is definitely something you can try for your graphics design needs and with its nice features including their library of graphics resources it would really help small business and startups with limited budget in creating professional looking logos and other graphics needs
