Looks a lot like Arial Condensed. If it's just a placeholder until you can get an officially sanctioned logo Arial Condensed will probably suffice.

Look into Symbols... I've used them before, I don't have illustrator open at the moment, so I'll do this from memory. Select your tile (you may want to save a copy of it in a separate file first just to be safe). Then you open the symbols pane, and choose "new symbol" while the basic tile is still selected. This will convert it into a symbol, which you ...

Most probably, some of your objects are locked. Try Object > Unlock All (Alt+Ctrl/Cmd+2) to unlock everthing that's been locked. You can also use the Layers palette to unlock objects or groups. Every object and group has a an 'eye' icon and an empty square in front of its entry in this palette. The eye is for visibility—click it to hide the object, ...

Gravit is another open source alternative, originally developed as a freehand alternative, that can be used both online and as a desktop app. And if you're on a mac, definitely check out Affinity Designer, it is by far the best alternative I've seen- even if it's just been released.

I've just come across a fairly basic online vector editor. Definitely a handy web app for creating basic vector work. I imagine it only works on more recent browsers. The vector editor can be found at: http://editor.method.ac/ The person/company that produced that free open source app, have also produced a few apps for becoming better at design both ...

You can also remove the black color in Illustrator itself. Once you have traced and expanded the image, you need to: ungroup the image (Command + Shift + G) select any one part of the image that contains the color you want to remove (black in this case) with the Direct Selection Tool (A) go to the Select menu > Same > Fill Color All components that ...

Here you go: http://www.tbyrne.org/export-illustrator-layers-to-svg-files Supported formats are: PNG8, PNG24, PDF, EPS & SVG You can choose whether you want to export all the artboards in the document with the currently visible layers showing, or if you want to export files for each of the layers in a document on the currently active ...

You can use the magic wand (Y) to select objects of similar, or even exactly the same, fill or stroke colour. double-click the tool in the toolbox to set the Tolerance to 1, meaning it will only select shapes of exactly the same colour. Be warned that, depending on your tracing setting, this may leave some not-entirely-black objects behind, you might need ...

Faux-sketch is very demanding. The interest lies in the question of what is a sketch? Often it would be drawn on paper with a pencil and focuses on the outlines of objects and some shading/texturing, like what you submitted. I have made a few experiments(top right is source): With Gimp, Edge Detect/Edge can be a useful filter here(then invert the result) ...

Try this trick, hope it helps...: With the photo newly opened in Photoshop, press CTRL + J(Win) / COMMAND+J (Mac) to duplicate the Background layer Press Shift+Ctrl+U (Win) / Shift+Command+U (Mac) to desaturate the layer Press CTRL + J (Win) / COMMAND+J (Mac) to duplicate the desaturated layer Press CTRL + I (Win) / COMMAND+I (Mac) to invert the layer ...

You can indeed join two separate nodes from unrelated vector lines. Do this by : Select both lines using the Move Tool. With to the Node Tool and select both end nodes you want to join (hold down Shift to select them both). Choose 'Join Curves' from the Action section of the Node context toolbar.

With the node tool (hit A) shift-select both curves you want to join together. Then, in the context toolbar at the top there are a bunch of buttons labelled "Action" - they look like this: the fourth button along from the left is "Join Curves" (you'll see that when you hover over it) and clicking on that will join the two separate lines together. Hope ...

I would agree that making the switch is a little daunting at first but it's a good idea to learn these ropes I suppose. From a print point of view you sound clear on what you're working with. Check your Font license to see if you are able to share and distribute the Font to the printer, worst case is Outline the Font, however please don't hold me accountable ...

As SVGs are XML-based, it’s relatively simple to write yourself a program that generates the lines as desired. Just generate yourself a file with two lines and take a look at the source to learn the relevant parts of the syntax. If you lack the programming skills and if you want the line thicknesses to decay exponentially, you can do the following ...

Select the area with the magic wand tool right click and make a copy...boom you have separate layer with that shape.

Creating a font is not an easy task, even if you only need to create a few letters. And it’s even worse if you have no experience with it. You have to match several distances, angles and shapes to each other, you have to properly align the letters to each other, etc. Though this does not directly relate to your problem, it is quite illustrating that ...

Upload a portion of your .bmp to https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ and hope that the font can be recognized. Otherwise, find a similar font and go with that.

I had the same problem and as of now you have to start off with "Align New Objects to Pixel Grid" turned off BEFORE you create any object (at least for me), because turning it off after still gave me errors, I'm hoping it's a glitch they will fix. Let me rephrase, it seems to work if you uncheck when the Options panel is visible, but not by checking it off ...

Choosing or getting the printhouse to select the right stock is important, different papers (and inks/print method) get different results, there is a minimum visible print size, but I doubt that was the issue - in all cases get a proof of the print job and make the supplier stick to it, they dont want you to be disappointed so offering you the help you ...

Whenever we perform boolean operations on two objects a single new object will be created. This new object will have it's own properties for fill and stroke on the whole object (left side in the image below). There is no object having different fill and stroke properties from the inside or the outside. To overcome this in the example given I worked with the ...

You can use the Anchor Point Tool (Shift+C) from the Pen Tool Drop down. If you click on the point with this tool and hold shift whilst dragging, it will give you even handles.

I think Bart Arondson is right: you probably have way too many samples/vector points. Let's say you're plotting every sample of an mp3 with a 44.1kHz sample rate. This means that for every second of audio, you will end up with 44,100 vector points. One second of audio would result in a vector point every 6.3mm on a 7 meter banner. Longer audio would only ...

You could use a stroke, then use Object → Expand to create the lines? Here’s a speedrun attempt at it. :) But, if you actually want to snap the control points of the curve to a certain place, and have them both match, you can use guides. I don't think that's going to give you a nice curve though.
