I’m looking into designing a logo for our family business and wondered if anyone has ever tried designing a logo through GIMP? If so, is it relatively easy, and or do you recommend using GIMP?
Any advice would be appreciated!

It’s definitely possible to use GIMP. I used to use it all time for design projects till I upgraded to Affinity Photo/Designer. Do you have any other software like PS Elements, or InDesign?November 14, 2017 at 2:27 pm #26813
Here’s a page with several tutorials for making various types of logos with GIMP. The page looks safe to me, but I have Adblock installed, so your mileage may vary.
Even if they don’t have the exact type of logo that you had in mind, they will give you some valuable hints about how to go about it.
If you get stuck, feel free to ask here on the forums, we’ll be happy to help!

Thanks for the info! I was able to get on the link you sent and will be working on designing a logo through GIMP. We’ll see how that goes! Haha!
Unfortunately, the only software I own is Picasa and GIMP…I like free software. 😉
Thanks again for your help!November 15, 2017 at 7:18 am #26825
Another free software solution good for designing logos is Inkscape. The big advantage of Inkscape is vector graphics (svg), meaning once you are done designing it you can export it as big or as small as you like without having problems of pixelation or rough curves. The down side is it take a bit of getting used to…
