October 29th, 2013 – DesignMantic announces it is launching out of beta, aiming to re-imagine the way we approach design. Designmantic is the Internet’s first and only HTML 5 do-it-yourself logo maker.
“The best thing about Designmantic,” said Zaheer Dodhia, “is that it lets the users create for themselves. We provide enough color, formatting and font options that the possibilities are limitless. And there are useful instructional aids on our blog and on the website to help people get started. But we want our users to be confident about their own creative visions, so that when they’re finished with their logos or their business cards, they have something that really shows who they are and what they’re about, that presents the message they want it to.¨
“And so far we’ve gotten overwhelmingly positive feedback from the people using our site.”
The goal, he explained, is to make professional-quality design tools available at affordable prices to small businesses that need the branding without the costs, and individuals who want to put a personal touch on formal invitations and advertisements.
Private marketing teams and printshops make things more complicated than they need to be, he said.
“It’s a way of getting money. You have to convince people that they don’t know what they’re doing, so you can charge a lot for your services. The whole thing has to be mysterious, because what you’re charging for is really labor costs.”
But creating a good logo, said Zaheer Dodhia doesn’t need to be so difficult, or so expensive.
“What we’ve done is make the whole process as simple, intuitive and affordable as possible, without sacrificing quality. 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. We’re always there to help, and we try and provide as much good information as possible, but here at Designmantic, we want people to feel empowered about their messaging. Especially for things like wedding or business cards, but also with business logos, too, that personal touch is important.”
Creating a logo, he said, is about more than just putting a stamp on a business.
“The logo is the first thing everyone sees, but it’s also what sticks in people’s heads. It’s a brand, it’s an identity, and the most important thing is that it be distinctive, that it represent the business and the business wants to convey.
“With that in mind, we think it’s meaningful to give people the tools to be able to create these brands themselves, because in the final product, that personal attention really comes through.”
On DesignMantic, users can look at the extensive list of designs the company has to offer, and play around with those. Differently to competitors, DesignMantic does not required you to start for zero, but from a set of existing logo you can choose from. Because the platform is HTML5 users can use a tablet, pc and even a cellphone to work on their designs. At the end of the process if you like the end-product you can purchase a high-resolution version of your logo for $29.
With designs oriented specifically toward everything from religious groups to automobile service stations, Designmantic, the only individualized design studio on the internet, is making a bigger and better push to offer services to everyone.
We should keep an eye on them in the last six month alone they have received over 150,000 visitors on their site.
