Yes, I used to drink RC Cola. :P

It looks nice, but it's never really going to be truly yours. Why not take their style and make it custom to you? Keep the swipe but use a different font on the RC. Or change colors. You want a logo that will make people think "Rakib Corporation", not "Royal Crown."

I looked at a few online logo generators and I don't think they're doing anything special. Nothing worth jumping through their hoops.

Photoshop is powerful, but also expensive and hard to learn. If you want something free that's also powerful, you could download Gimp whcih has a lot of the same functions. But it's also very difficult to learn.

You probably have Microsoft Paint, because everyone with Windows has that. And it's easy. Use that as your canvas, and take ideas to put them in and touch up there. You can take a background from an online source to start. So for example your gradient background is good, start with that. Now you want something interesting for your name, so here's a tip: WordArt.

Do you have Microsoft Word? (Part of the Office.) Most people do for work or school. Well if you open a word document you can Insert what's called WordArt. And it comes with built-in choices for fonts, colors, 3d, shaping, shadow, and all kinds of good stuff. So make a WordArt that you like and then when it's ready select it and Ctrl-C, then paste in Paint.



Thanks, i think i have those.

It's your rule that a real world company name is not allowed. Apply it here. RC means Royal Crown in real world which is not allowed here. RC means Rakib Corporation in Simunomics. :bounce:

I think you have it backwards there. :roll: :wink:

Being a trademarked logo it's probably even worse than just stealing their name...

You said ask permission to upload. I want to upload, an over 10 kib file as my logo, from Microsoft word, but it's too big, could you help?

Resize it 125x125. Click right button on the mouse and look for resize option.

It' perfect. Multicolor and colorful background doesn't make a logo good. I like your avatar. Simply best.

the background here on the forum is one post white and the other blue-eesh. I landed on white which did look good but when I land on the other color it wont look good. but black looks good on anything.
actually I realized how good it looks when I saw yours, Rakib

I did my logo in Paint (with a googled font) which is pretty dumb. I will try doing some more work in other more capable software which can make the background transparent (for GIF) instead of just white. and maybe even an animated GIF (even though they are banned). I think I can go lower than 10k with 2 or 3 frames
