For those who don’t know , I have been designing logos in fireworks for a few years now. And Â lot of people would ask , Why Fireworks ? Why not use Photoshop or illustrator in designing logotypes ?
I answer them simply with this,Â creating a quality logo can be done in fireworks. It’s a path last travelled, but its doable in FW.Â There are some things you might want to consider when designing a logo in fireworks.
a. FW doesn’t support cmyk and other print formats , you need to export it as a psd / ai file and need to edit it again in ps or illus , yes this might be extra work, especially if you’re client requires it for print.
b. FW text kerning is awful, you need to convert your text to paths sometimesÂ and arrange the spacing manually.
c. Keep the logo simple , dont overdo the logo with eye candy effects , if you want your logo to be exported to ps or ai , always remember they dont have all the fw layer modes on those programs , justÂ stick to gradients and solid colors.
d. If you are just aiming for a logo for your website , or a screen app, then fireworks would be fine. I’ll be posting more tips in logo design in fw in the near future.
e. If you need a logo designer , im available for commissions =) My recent commissioned logos are in my deviantart portflio.
The logos in this pack are my old concepts for my clients , I thought about reselling them but I figured out its best to give it out to the FW community. You can use these files for personal or Â commercial purposes, just dont claim thatÂ you made them. =) Well anyways , here are the [download id=”15″], Leave a comment if you like.
