Have you ever wished you were and avid graphic designer so that you could create your company’s logo? Forget about 99designs and even learning photoshop skills – DesignMantic can potentially disrupt the graphic design industry.
DesignMantic offers a user-friendly design studio built with HTML5, aiming to re-imagine the way we approach design. It’s incredibly easy to make a logo: plug in a name, filter by industry, choose from a ton of preset options, and start making changes with their simple editing tools. If you are happy with the end result, it will cost you $29 to download a high-resolution version of the design you just created.
Founded earlier this year, this bootstrapped startup wants to provide the simplest suite of design tools available online. We can find a few competitors such as LogoMaker and LogoYes, but their tools start you off from zero. DesignMantic allows you to edit preexisting designs — and because it’s built with HTML5, it can be used on both mobile devices and desktop.
“What we’ve done is make the whole process as simple, intuitive, and affordable as possible, without sacrificing quality,” said DesignMantic founder Zaheer Dodhia. “If you give people the right options and make everything easy to use, they can figure out for themselves how they want their designs to look.”
With over 150,000 downloads in its first six months of activity, DesignMantic is already developing banner and flyer options, and the team has already scheduled launches in three new languages before the end of the year. The potential is clear; Designmantic can become the go-to logo design tool for businesses and individuals.
The DesignMantic team plans to release their mobile app on this solution early next year. It’s also working on new language options (German is next) and on expanding its feature set beyond logos.
“DesignMantic wants to offer complete design solutions, so customers can get their logos, stationery designs, brochures, websites, signage, and any other designs all in one place,” marketing coordinator Danielle Pacelli told us “It’s going to take us time, but we’ll get there.”
DesignMantic currently has ten employees between its two offices in Langhorne, Pennsylvania and Karachi, Pakistan. We will keep an eye on their growth and activities.
