What software do I use ?

I'm creating simple logo design animations in after effects - but what software would be best for making the logo ? Photoshop, Illustrator Or could I just make the logo in after effects itself ?

True answer: Yes. If the end product is good, what does it matter how you got there?

Correct answer: Proper logo design is done in Illustrator since it is a vector-based program. That way the logo can be scaled up to be used anywhere. Also, a proper logo will look good at really tiny sizes in just black and white, so no need for any of Photoshop's tools. Then you would take that logo into Photoshop, After Effects, or Cinema 4d to make it look really pretty for whatever hero shot you're doing with it.
