Image to Vector Samples

This image was taken off the clients’ website as it was the best they had. They needed it to be used on a large format banner and when scaled up would become very pixelated so needed to be redrawn into a vector. They could then use it for lots of other purposes without any jagged edges appearing.

This logo had aged over time and the background had become discoloured. We did this conversion and also removed the faded background. Nearly all the logos we redraw will be supplied without the background, enabling them to be placed on different coloured backgrounds.

The original logo had a distressed or eroded effect, which we can do our best to replicate. Although in this example the client wanted it to look ‘clean’.

This is a straightforward job, typical of the type of logos we would receive. A scanned image which is a bit offline, which is simple for us to correct. Also the client needed some text removed. The converted logo was made into signs for a local election campaign.

This logo has a metallic effect which we had to replicate using gradients or colour blends. This is not a 100% true vector image as the gradient effect is actually a raster effect. Although the redrawn version will still scale up to any size and remain sharp.

 

The original jpeg supplied was quite bad quality and because it was made up lots of small speckles, it would have been very difficult to redraw as it appeared. So we suggested to our client that we could redraw a simplified version which would also make it more suitable for reproduction purposes in future.

The detail in the original ‘whelk’ jpeg had to be simplified slightly as the detail was too small to see. But the redrawn version would more suitable when used for other purposes such as signage, T-shirts or vinyl cutting etc. 

 

The ‘flourishes’ in this design is one design replicated and mirrored 4 times. This will make it easier for us to redraw and we would take that into consideration when providing a quote.

 

For this example the original was in quite a bad state, but as long as we can see the main shapes of the letters it can usually be salvaged. 

 

The client requested that the main letters were to be made bolder, to make it print better. Also we couldn’t see the small text clearly enough to redraw it accurately (above main letters), so the client supplied a clearer version of just that section, which we could work from. 

 

To manually redraw the rope in this example, would be very difficult and also time consuming. To make things easier and also keep the cost down for the client, we created a ‘Pattern Brush‘ in Illustrator.

 

The original artwork supplied for this was too small to work from. But fortunately we were able to find a higher resolution version on the web which we could use. 

 

The outer glow effects on this image are actually ‘raster’ effects (bitmap, not vector), which means this example is not a 100% true vector. Although it can still be scaled up to any size and will appear the same. So it’s not suitable for every usage such as vinyl cutting or engraving.
