New to the forum and could use some help. I have a small logo that’s a jpeg that I need to turn into a vector image. The problem is, it’s so small that I’m running into problems. An image trace distorts it, and increasing the size pixelates it. It may need to be rebuilt because it’s so small but I’m not sure. Anyone able to help?
This sounds like the best solution — assuming a higher res or vector art version is not available from any other sources.
The answer to this question depends on what you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for additional tips, the only thing I can suggest is to do some more work to see if the logo is available as a high res image or vector art. Sometimes, you can scour the internet and find some things you didn’t think possible.
If you’re looking to hire a designer to reproduce the logo in a vector format, you could post it someplace like Upwork. I feel like there used to be a classifieds section here, but I don’t see it anymore. If you are looking to hire the work out, please don’t expect the work to be done for free.
There’s really no choice other than to find the original, use it as it is, or redraw it.
If it comes to redrawing in Illustrator or another vector drawing application, redoing it would be reasonably simple if you can locate the fonts. The word Predators might need to be redrawn from scratch, but that would be easy enough.
I’ve started redrawing it. Was hoping there was a simpler fix but appreciate all the opinions. Agreed on the “Pittsburgh “ and “softball” fonts. I’ve tried matcherating it through several sites but to no luck. If anyone can identify those fonts it would be a HUGE help. It looks like the Pittsburgh is outlined with a stroke…
Font Queen, you’re awesome. Thanks for the font help. I’ll have to check them when I’m back in the office tomorrow. As for the standard logo, I’ve been using that one as a guide. I really appreciate your help.
Ok, looking at first glance, you nailed the fonts for the standard logo. They do consider the other one their secondary logo, and unfortunately the fonts are different. Any leads on the secondary logo fonts?
Understood. I figure if I can get it 99% of the way there manually in photoshop, I can just bring it into AI and save it as an eps or an svg. It’s for team gear. The company needs the vector file for print.
