Hey everyone,


I have this logo which I scanned in and I would like to turn it into a symmetric graphic so I can use it as a "clean looking" logo for websites, tshirt prints etc.. I've tried Adobe Illustrator to turn it into a vector graphic, but since the scan is not very clear the logo doesn't look very symmetric after I turned every line of the logo into a vector. Is there any "smart- program" on which I can turn the logo into a symmetric graphic? I can imagine Illustrator is the right program, but I'd like it to "correct" my vectors, by suggesting alignments of vectors etc......

In advance I am known to ask questions to wrap my head around what you're doing. Please know that reading text does not always tell me the story 😃😃😃and no doubt you are far more experienced than I!

Ok then, did you use your home printer to scan from a photo of this logo?
How did you save the scan?
What program did you use to generate a vector?
Is the logo a "mirror image" that you are attempting to maintain?
Will the logo be in color or bl
ack & white?
You mention wanting to use the logo various ways, this means it will need to be saved with the ability to "re-size"?

Any chance you can "share" the scanned logo, if not public however in a PM to anyone wanting to help?

A logo can be anything to infinity, just not sure what you're dealing with😉

If you are aiming for a really clean vector logo, you should go and trace the logo design using adobe illustrator. Starting from a clean slate is the best option that I can see.
