Hi Guys,

I am hoping you can help me?
I have a basic knowledge of InDesign and photoshop.

At work I have been asked to design a logo for a company. I have mocked up a design the client likes and I want to know if I can export/save this design at a high enough quality/resolution for them to use or do I need illustrator? I have PDF'd the design and saved it as a Jpeg in Photoshop but this only saves at a size of 752KB.

Is there a way to save my design in high quality or should I pass on my mock-up to a graphic designer to do as this needs to be at the highest quality for the companies branding?

I’d appreciate any feedback –

Cheers

I'd definitely suggest getting it into a vector format.

Do it in Illustrator.

Actually on a fundamental basis he is right. it is for photo's. Thats at least how it started out. Its grown since then with the birth of the net.

But yes now its also the primary web graphics tool.
But again, its not meant for logo design for Printing purposes. Can and should are definitely 2 different things in this case.

having said that, ive designed logos in it as a quick mash.. but then re did them in illustrator properly for approved versions and for print.

If I know a logo will be for a website only then yes I dont see a problem with using photoshop.

Thanks for your replies..
i am currently looking into purchasing Illustrator.

Anotehr question - to convert the Jpeg logo into a vector image is it as simple as opening the Jpeg logo in illustrator and re saving it as a vector image?

Thanks :)

No, you'll have to re-trace it.

You can save the jpeg as a vector image, but it'll still be a jpeg with .ai behind it's name.
