    School Logo

    Hi, I need to have a look at re doing the schools logo, as all the images we have are pixelated does anyone know of anywhere I can get a new logo designed, or is there someone who can have a look at it for me?

    Cheers

    If your only issue is that the images are a bit pixelated, try this site to convert the best one you have to a vector graphic: Vector Magic Precision Bitmap To Vector Conversion Online

    Feel free to PM the best copy of your logo and I'm happy to take a look see how big a job it would be (or how bad the logo currently is etc)

    I had to do the same for a couple of the schools I work in .. turned them from a pixelated mess to a nicely redrawn vector that I could then resize out to different formats as required by the school.

    Like others have said - you can use a bad copy and then "trace" over it - I use GIMP myself.

    Its a bit like fishing - it can take a long time but its very theraputic

    Sometimes, I've had a quick win by taking a picture of a school sign and just using simple fill techniques as when you shrink it down from megapixel size to a final real size for a webpage/word header, the resizing takes care of any slight imperfections.

    Stick an existing copy up and we'll have a little comp

    regards
    Simon
    PS Sysman will win of course

    I have spoken to neilmc and he is happy for me to post this. Here is the main part of the logo that needs improving. Mine is a work in progress but will post the results later.

    What you need is to change the logo completely. Those pixelated yellow birds are so 1980's. What you need is a cool 2k10 falcon as the logo!
