I have given money to a company to design a logo. The designer will be using Corel Draw, and he was saying that he will give me the cdr file.
Now I am confused about how many files he should give me. I have a few questions.
First of all , suppose this is the logo:
I want to use this logo on black, white or colored backgrounds. How should I choose which color the designer should give me? The logo already looks good on a white background because the inner white color mixes with the white of the background. Now suppose I have to use this logo on a black background. What should I do?
Should the logo be enclosed within any shape, like a circle or a square? I mean, should there be any boundary or border or not? Would this make them easy to insert somewhere?
Basically, I’m confused about whether the logo should be transparent, or if the inner white color should be part of logo.
The most important file format he should give you is a vector format, typically in .eps, or vectorized .pdf. He should also give you some high resolution transparent png format as well. But if you have the .eps format, then you can make pngs in any size or resolution later. If he cannot or refuse to give you the logo in vector format, then you hired the wrong guy.
1) The logo should be on a transparent background. for example, this is how the logo(linked in your question) should look on a gray background:
2) no it shouldn’t be enclosed in any shape.
