I wanna develop this logo called 'Twinky Productions' to be used in the prelude to a video I'm gonna make but I'm not sure how to make one optimally. What do you guys use to design and create your logos?

I use Inkscape, then do any touch-ups in Paint.NET.

Usually, a logo pretty much implies use of vector images, so Inkscape and Illustartor are your go to programs. It means that you can scale and edit and modify the logo for any possible situation/usage. If it's only ever going to be in one video though, use MS Paint or up (PS, Gimp, Paint.NET, etc) and create it at 3840 x 2160 pixels.

Photoshop will do the job well for you as long as you know the basics and proper layering, you'll be just fine. Don't look too much for software that may be new to you. Photoshop will give you anything you need.

I tried Illustrator once, and to me it kinda felt like a gimped Photoshop. So Photoshop gets my vote.

Haha, calling Illustrator a gimped Photoshop is so wrong... You've only tried it once, and even then by trying to think it was Photoshop.

Although I guess you could say Illustrator is a gimped Photoshop for rastor and Photoshop is a gimped Illustrator for vector.

Actually I dislike the use of the word 'gimped' since GIMP is actually another popular image editing program...

Anyway, apples and bananas dude :P

Yeah Photoshop seems pretty adequate and the more I learn it from the more it the better given many people use it these days as a standard.

Logos should be done in vector format, therefore: Illustrator. You never know when you have to resize it for something massive. If you do it in photoshop you already set the maximum resolution (which if you need to use for anything bigger, you have to recreate it if you want good quality).. whereas in vector, you can literally resize it to anything without quality loss. You can always export it into photoshop afterwards.. LOL and calling illustrator a gimped version of photoshop.. you do know that they're both created by the same company right? They both do 2 very different but very similar things, you'll see what I mean one day. Practice and you'll see it's potential :)

Quark has it in one. Illustrator is the program of choice, infinitely scalable with out loss of of image quality. The right tool for the right job.

Aren't we really limited to Illustrator or QuarkExpress in the vector format software these days?

If it's just for a movie then you can use pretty much anything. If you were designing it professionally then you can't beat Illustrator. I'd use PS because I know how to use it. -X

Photoshop or GIMP if you want free software IMO is best solutions.

Flash does vector, so does InDesign, so does corel draw probibly.. but then technicly so is MS word if your talking about text.

But none of which (except for corel draw) are for logo design.
Illustrator (or corel if you must) is the only decent logo design tool on the market.

Quark express and Indesign are both document publishing apps.
Quark is dead as far as im concerned.

or Inkscape, I've done most of my (very limited) range of logo's in Inkscape.

In the end use a vector graphics tool, Photoshop or Gimp are both are great pieces of software but are not suited for the creation of logos.

Got this amazing set of tools. I swear by them... It's called a graph-pad and pencil. Design it on paper first - it's faster and easier to draw by hand. The grid pattern in the graph pad helps you with dimension, proportion and perspective. When you have a design(s) you are happy with, scan it into Illustrator or similar and use the pen tool to create a vector.
