Anyone with logo design/graphic experience?

What programs do you use? I need to design logos for different events and T-shirts throughout the year and am looking for the most cost effective way to do this on my own.

Can you recommend any programs? anything specifically for T-shirt design maybe?

    Illustrator, hands down. Its best to use a vector-based graphic program rather than a raster-based graphic program like Photoshop for logos, because logos need to function at different sizes.

    This might not be very popular, but if you don't have it, and don't want to shell out the money for it, you can find it on Limewire.

    I agree on illustrator, and if you know anyone who's a student, adobe gives awesome education discounts on their products, so you might look into that

    Also, you can try out adobe products free for 30 days, just to see if it does all that you want in a way that works for you. Last time I looked the trials were off line for some reason, but I seem to remember they'll be back in July

    I'm looking at some used Illustrator 8.0 on Amazon for about $65.00. I need to make sure our Mac Mini can support it.

    Illustrator 8 is pretty archaic. I would at least try for Illustrator CS.

    Ooof, Illustrator 8 is ancient. It might not even be compatible with your computer.
