Logo design - Inkscape or Gimp?
#1
Both are popular graphics design utilities with a different purpose. The GIMP is an all in one suite designed to suit many purposes, where Inkscape is particularly suited for logo design, but may not have some of the features of the GIMP.

So for logo design purposes, which do you prefer?

Ah, accidentally voted wrong. Inkscape.
I mod Paradox games. Click here to see my many adventures in doing that.

I agree, Inkscape seems to do the job well when it comes to logo design.

I actually use both in combination.
Inkscape for graphics scaling and whatnot, gimp for effects and layering and stuff.

when working on a project using both it's really very powerful and the outcome is a beautiful logo that fits all screen sizes.

plus inkscape is great for upscaling and resizing images without image distortion or pixelation issues.

I think it's fair I add a couple more things, I use inkscape and gimp because I do my logo design and graphics work in linux, it's compatible with my wacom bamboo without issues unlike windows 8.1...

it is nice to be able to draw on the screen, in gimp, import the layers into inkscape and scale as needed to fit what I want then import/export back into gimp for the final touches and effects.

That's an interesting combination, I like it. The best of both worlds. Big Grin
