    I use Photoshop with heavy use of Custom Shapes and the Pen. The only reason that I don't use Illustrator is because I don't know/haven't learned how to use it (yet). I need a crash course for that.

    How can you ask this question.

    A logotype has to be made in vector, this way you will always have the possibility to change the size later, if need for big format.

    Illustrator is my favorite. Any vector program would be best. There's a thread with suggestions for alternatives to Illustrator.

    Only ever used Illustrator, not many decent alternatives on a Mac. Otherwise I might consider Corel.

    I try to draw out several different designs for the logo, scan them in Photoshop then take the scan into Illustrator to vectorize it. It is a good process.

    Illustrator

    If anyone else says anything else besides Illustrator, that would be strange. The only other programs I would recommend if you want to build a 3D logo is Cinema4D.

    I usually started with a handdrawn sketch, then scan/or take a picture of the sketch and do the lineart (vectorize?) for it using Illustrator. Logos ned to be flexible in term of size and shape and Illustrator is the perfect program for it (or you can use CorelDRAW as an alternative? I'm not strong in CorelDRAW so..).

    Adobe Photoshop can come in handy for some color adjustments, and if you want, you can use the Animation tool in Photoshop to make a short mini introduction video or transformation process of the logo too.. I tried some tutorials online and it's pretty cool. XD I think it works for CS6 and forward. (I'm not sure about the older versions)

    It's all about Adobe Illustrator nowadays really.

    When I was still a kid I messed around making logos in Adobe Photoshop – never vector so fundamentally flawed from the start...I just liked adding cool effects to my designs!

    Illustrator is the gold standard but Corel is good too.
