Creator and Owner of Laughingbird Software

Hi! My name is Marc Sylvester.

I live in southern California with my wife Lisa, my daughter Devan and twin boys Jake and Cody.

Back in 2001, I created a software product called "The Logo Creator". It quickly became a best seller and I've been having fun with it ever since. Laughingbird Software is the name I've chosen for the company. It's a catchy upbeat name and captures the feeling that you get when using the software.

Today, Laughingbird Software has graphics apps for you to help you create page headers, Youtube graphics, logos, blog and podcast images, memes ...and whatever else you may need professional looking graphics for!

All of the software is both Mac and Windows compatible ... and you'll have a blast using them.
