I have created a logo in Illustrator. I used to create logos in Photoshop but was told that Illustrator is better for re-sizing because you don't lose quality because it is a vector based program.

So with the original size, I held Shift and scaled down the size. I sliced and went to 'Save for web' and saved as a PNG with Type Optimized but now the edges are blurry. I thought the edges would be sharp.

I went to preferences and turned off Anti-Aliased Artwork and still the same result.

What process do professionals use to resize logos?

Did you try setting Save for Web to Art Optimized? – Scott Dec 21 '13 at 19:31
Yes, i've tried both art and type optimized. – user892134 Dec 21 '13 at 19:36
How much of a reduction are you asking Save for Web to do? Have you tried reducing the artwork to size, then saving as PNG? – Scott Dec 21 '13 at 19:38
50% reduction. I don't reduce in Save for web though, i reduce on the Artboard with the transform tool, while holding shift. Should i reduce in Save for web? – user892134 Dec 21 '13 at 19:40
It's difficult to give any further advice without seeing artwork. – Scott Dec 21 '13 at 19:47
