To go into a little more detail, the principle of revealing the object by coloring the pixels does not work in a vector design. Each color is recreated as you move closer or further away from the subject.

We cannot use pixel-based graphic design programs to make vector designs. So Adobe Photoshop is not suitable for vector design. So what do we need? Adobe Illustrator software, developed by Adobe company to make vector designs, is one of the common programs used to make vector designs. Apart from that, Corel Draw and Inkspace are useful programs where you can make your vector designs. It is possible to find many resources in Turkish and English to use any of these programs.

You have a successful logo. When we look at the logos of brands such as Adidas, Nike, Apple, Mercedes, we realize that we all have logos that we can easily draw. We should also design a catchy logo that is far from confusion. If we are going to use text in our logo, we should prefer an easy-to-read font. Let's stay away from using Turkish characters (çşöİü) in our logo as much as possible. If it is unavoidable to use, let's make sure that the font we choose should support Turkish characters as well as being readable.

Our Logo Is Considered Ready!
