I'd like to make this logo small enough to use on a Facebook profile photo which is 160 × 160 px. Will I have to redesign it to 160 × 160px?

    If you scale that logo down you're going to have trouble with the legibility of the text. You may have to remove the text and show of the world, sword and feather as a stand alone smaller logo. – SaturnsEye Nov 18 '14 at 9:35

While you're in the adobe illustrator file, select all the elements of the logo and up on the toolbar go Object > Expand or Object > Expand Appearance and have the options Fill and Stroke checked if available.

Once that's done you can resize it to what ever size you want without losing any quality. The stroke and fill ratios will stay the same. This technique is much faster than any other.

You won't have to redesign it. Just reduce to the size you need. As long as you are going smaller than the original size, you should not loose quality!

  • I ended making it work by deleting some details in the sword and making the strokes smaller in size. All I had to do with the quill was make the stroke smaller. I also reduced the size of the type. Thanks! – Jack Nov 17 '14 at 23:06
