I am trying to trace the below image (jpg).

But it isn't coming out right at all.

Thanks!

  • The image is too low resolution for tracing. Recreate it instead. It's only some type. Should be easy enough.

  • You expect too much. You maybe can easily imagine the wanted result, but the tracing utility in Illustrator doesn't have a slightest idea of it. Tracing utility cannot imagine "this is a letter" or "that's another, but extruded" etc. The starting point of a successful tracing is an image which at least doesn't look blurry. If you can imagine the wanted result, draw it!

  • Why would one attempt to trace that when it's easily reconstructed? It's like trying to use a sledgehammer to repair a set of eye glasses... never gonna work. The original image is way too small to be traced, regardless of what it actually contains. Tracing is more akin to a Fax Machine (if you remember those) when it comes to replicating the original, not a 1:1 reconstruction.

  • @Scott Ok, thanks everyone. I originally had tried to recreate it, but the font was wrong. I managed to get a copy so I'll try it again. Commented Mar 26, 2022 at 18:29
  • If it's your logo, then you can change the font :) It's simply a sans serif with a sharp A N and V. The rest of the letters are rather nondescript and could be any of hundreds of sans serif fonts.

If you can not find the original font or a better resolution file, try to recreate the font from scratch. It looks pretty simple.

Another option is finding a similar font. Focus on the A, V and D.

The truth is that in this case, I would charge the client a special fee to recreate the logo and prepare a basic identity manual so this does not happen again.

    Thanks for answering but um... I am the client 🤣. I think Trend Sans Four is the font used for the T and the TalinTheDev. Even if its not exact, I think its close enough for me. P.S. I used a logo generator (Tailor Brands) that's why I don't know the font. Commented Mar 26, 2022 at 21:21

    @TalinTheDev That's not the font or even close to it (Look at the A) :) But it is your logo. You don't need a font with a built in shadow. You can simply copy the type and create your own shadow for it.

    Definitely not Trend Sans in the logo. My first thought was Brandon Text, which is at least very close. I’m not sure it’s exactly it (the crossbar on the H looks slightly lower in the logo), but it’s definitely closer than Trend Sans. Commented Mar 26, 2022 at 22:24

    @TalinTheDev No, that’s probably not part of the font. Very easy to do, just make a copy of the text in the back, give it the right colour and move it down and to the right a bit (once for the white border-ish effect, once for the light-grey shadow). Commented Mar 27, 2022 at 21:54
