To repair your logo, our designers take your ‘diamond in the rough’ artwork – be it blurry digital images or a hard copy printed version – and clean it up manually using professional design software to create a vector based source file. As we’re logo perfectionists at our studio, we opt for hand rendering each and every time – while tracing ‘by hand’ takes longer than automatic solutions, we’ve always found auto tracing images through software to be unpredictable and unable to create ‘clean’ files. Once we have this vector based version of your logo, we can create bitmap based images, .JPGs and .PNGs. for example, at any size and at any resolution. Vector files can also be used for print (see here for appropriate logo formats), and can be set up for economical spot color printing.
While we’re building these new files, our designers will also be able to make minor revisions and changes to your logo without any additional charge. The artwork will be posted on our client only Factory Floor, where you can login to make sure the repaired version is up to your standards, and that any changes are to your satisfaction. Once you’re approved the repair, our designers will then created properly formatted color palettes for electronic and web use. They’ll also set up a file format bundle so that you’ll have the proper file formats whenever you need them.
These file formats are ‘industry standard’ so you’ll be able to work with any vendor on your print and design projects without worrying about the quality of the final printed product. Once the formats of your logo have been created, we’ll make everything available for download from your client page. More details on how the repair process works, see our anatomy of a logo repair page. Our Complex Logo Repair also features an upgraded full file format bundle so you’ll have more selection when it comes to using your newly cleaned-up logo in your marketing and branding efforts.
