A close look at the recently released DesignEvo 2.5
Designers, developers and business owners are very fortunate these days. We are all short on time, money and patience so we are always looking for ways to improve our workflow in the quickest but also in the most efficient manner possible. Free online tools like the many logo makers have answered our needs.
In this post, I will take a look into one of these logo makers, DesignEvo 2.5 which is an updated version of the original DesignEvo.
The logo is a visual cornerstone of a company’s brand. An excellent logo design will not only help establish brand recognition, but will also build customer trust and deliver a clear view of the company’s culture as well. However, designing a logo is not easy and it often requires a great deal of time, talent and money. But the good news is that DesignEvo is here to give you a hand, since it is engineered to simplify the cumbersome process of logo design and reduce cost dramatically. [DesignEvo]
What’s New in 2.5?
Back in May (Logo Makers Free Online), I performed a test drive on eight online logo makers and they did what they suppose to accomplish, give you a high quality logo in minutes.
In this post, I will take a deeper dive into DesignEvo 2.5, the newest version released by Pearl Mountain Limited.
What are the newest features since my last test drive?

Step 6 Customize Name and Slogan
1) In this example, you can choose your font and font art.
2) Panel on left let’s you add additional Icons, Shapes and Backgrounds.
Step 7 More Customization Options
There are so many options to personalize your log, it would not be feasible to show every example in this post. If I did, I would be writing a multi-page manual.
Here is an example of how you would customize the background.
1) First select Background.
2) I chose the Blue Gradient.
Step 8 How To Save
To save your project, click on the Save button on the toolbar.
If you have not created an account with DesignEvo, you will be prompted to do so.
The reason is so you will have your own storage space to save your projects.
