I'm currently designing a website for a place that uses a large circular logo. Their logo contains an image as well as text.
The problem I'm running into is fitting this logo into the web design while still keeping the text in the logo readable, but not taking up a huge amount of screen real estate.
Circular logos are as tall as they are wide. Most logos are wider than they are tall and are easier to fit on a screen because of it.
I'm thinking of incorporating it into the header of the page along with the menu but the height of the logo creates a real imbalance on the screen and the text in the logo makes it impossible to make the logo any smaller.
So my question is this how do you deal with unruly logos? Is it alright to deconstruct them, or what kind of workarounds are useful in these types of situation?
