Cool Text: Logo Generator and Web Design tool

My first job in the computer industry (pre-Internet economy crash circa 1999) was as a web developer. Anyone who knows a bit of HTML can tell you there are varying levels of web design, ranging from spending hours fixing a one-pixel alignment problem to those who prefer WYSIWYG editors like Frontpage (*shudder*).

My personal favorite was always Dreamweaver, but for this task I wanted something simple, easy, slick, and oh yeah – made online for free.

A quick search on Google for “online logo maker” yielded Cool Text, a site I’ve seen before but never tried to use. I wanted a logo for FreewareFreak (my freeware blog) so I decided to give it a shot.

This is the result:

The entire process is implemented using javascript and a little bit of active server stuff, but it was very easy to do and took literally less than 5 minutes. The site uses a queue system so you may have to wait for your rendering job to complete after you finish your design, but I had one person in front of me and the job took maybe 30 seconds total.

So if you’ve got the skills but not the drive, Cool Text is a good option 🙂
