There may not be a good reason to redesign a logo if it is easily recognized and if the market generally has a positive opinion of the brand. In fact a better option would be to make subtle updates that keep logo pretty much the same but perhaps improve how it can be applied in different use cases. So make sure you have a good, solid business case before ...

If you want a professional logo, hire a professional designer. Do not use one of the $99 logo web sites. If you want a quality logo, you want to be able to work directly with a designer so that they can get a completely understanding of your business needs and objectives and then walk through the entire process with you. You will not get that from one of ...

I think the square in the first use is a little busy -- I'd at least try how it looks without the cutout in the bottom right, or without the small square on the bottom right, or with neither, even if just to be sure that you prefer what you already have. (For consistency, you'll have to change them all, of course.) About the type, I think that bears more ...

Its important to understand that in essence your not actually buying just a logo. Sure, if thats what you pay for thats what you get. But ultimately, atleast if you want good impact, you should be buying a look and feel. You should also get instructions on how to apply that to your benefit, in different situations (Web, print etc... yes contracts still are ...

I like it, fwiw! Comments: 1) Is the first square logo too "busy"? How can it be improved? Not too busy for my tastes, but the mismatch between the lower-right "cut-out" and the red band over the T crossbar catches my eye. I find myself wanting some symmetry here: (1) shows the "problem" with the blue boxes; (2) is the current "standalone" logo. In ...

I'm not personally a fan of the "R". It really just looks like a bastardized P to me. But I realize that is probably simply the font you've chosen. Actually reworking the R would go a long way in my eyes. As for the first square: I don't think it's too busy. But I would adjust kerning for the "Plast" section if possible. The P & L, and S & T create ...

I like the design and branding a lot. 1) Is the first square logo too "busy"? How can it be improved? I don't think it's too busy. 2) Does the wide logo read "RONOPLAST" and the first T is ignored? How can this be improved with hopefully retaining the red/white combination? I didn't even notice this until you asked but yes to some degree it is ...

Expanding on bemdesign's answer: even if it were legal you would not want to use somebody else's concept/artwork as your logo. It would make it hard to enforce as your own trademark/brand.

From what you've stated, you're a little stuck for choices. As it's impossible to add pixel quality, improving the quality is tricky. Personally, in your situation I would print the logo as best as possible, then photography it as best as possible. Some photoshop editing, better quality. If you have a good printer and good camera, you should be good to go.

It's context-centric, for the most part. It really depends on the particular business and the needs of the client. Let's take a restaurant. They need an identity. That could be: a new logo and be all that the job entails. Ideally, though, you'd get to talk with them some more and explain to them how a cohesive brand identity is important as it's not ...

Along with all the other good answers here, please remember that you are creating a visual identity of a business that, ideally, makes money. This identity has the potential to be used for years to come. How valuable is the business to you or your friend? Surely it's more valuable than $99? If so, then invest well in the business identity. It's a crucial ...

If you want to use it for a web-page or a ruff sketch it is ok, if you want to print it you should not use it. Well, you can, but it would only be "good" at a certain width (1 to 3 cm i guess). I would suggest NOT to redraw it in Illustrator as you always ALTER it, which is never a good idea. In such cases you have to contact your client(?) to get a ...

Probably a good start is a good interview with the client. You can not (or should not) start designing a logo if you do not have a minimum information. For example, a logo for a electronic medum only, lets say a web site, can use gradients and shadows, but if the logo must be printed in a shirt, or must be phisically built in the exterior of an office ...

As this is a legal question and as we are not your lawyer and finally as the answer can vary by location (different laws) - this question is unanswerable by us here at StackExchange. All this being said, if you ever find yourself asking "Is this legal?", it's usually a good sign to rethink your current design and try to come up with something better.

Is importing into illustrator and making a vector better? I'd suggest whenever possible to create your logo in Illustrator. Having the logo as a vector file will give you a great deal more flexibility when resizing a logo. If made as a vector, you can use the same file on a business card, and a billboard, due to the infinite scalability of vectors. As ...

Hey is there any standards I should know about when designing a logo No standards, but plenty of things to consider. For starters, where and how will the log be used? On business cards? Semi trucks? Billboards? TV ads? Faxes? Web sites? Etc, etc. What are the dimensions for making a logo for the first time in photoshop? The dimensions are what you ...

I prefer converting the straight logo into an art brush and I would apply it to any curve.

Simply use Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Warp > Arc To curve the logo into a semi-circle. Realize that the larger the diameter of the circle (tire) the less distorted the logo will appear. But some distortion is always present. If you don't want any distortion whatsoever, you need to redraw the logo on an arc rather than trying to make a ...
