Inkscape’s design Uses
Inkscape Logo Design is our topic today. Inkscape is a free and open source vector graphics illustrator software. It’s uses are editing or creating vector graphics illustrations, logos, charts, diagrams and much more. The software saves and exports multiple vector graphic formats. Inkscapes proprietary format is SVG but .EPS, .PDF, AutoCAD DXF and PNG files for the use of their transparency.
Logo Design Ideas
The logo design you choose needs to relate to your business or service. This is going to help brand you amongst millions of other business out there. The clipart will have a direct relationship with what you do in your niche career field. Someone in the transportation business would use a plane, train or automobile to represent that company. Don’t use clipart that makes false statements about who you are or what your business does.
Inkscape Logo Design
Inkscape logo design is going to be based around a cnc wood engraving shop. I’m choosing a wooden mallet and chisel for my logo design. All clipart used is from openclipart.org for the reason that it’s all free use imagery. This website also offers different formats and sizes for download.
The first step taken is importing our images into Inkscape, converting them to a vectorized image and not a raster image. This enables us to re-scale up or down in size without loss of image quality. The images are for business cards to larger print and advertising. CAD reads vector images better then raster for toolpath functions.
Clipart & Imagery
The logo I’m designing for my shop uses clipart. To prevent the use of imagery that violates copyrights I utilize free open source websites. The first one is openclipart.org and the other is pdclipart.org. Both of these websites are free use, no attribution and are allowed for commercial use. I won’t put myself into and legal positions when there’s so much shared on the internet today.
Inkscape Logo Design is done simply in this free open source software.As an engraver I’m not interested in a paid Illustrator software for my cnc shop. All extensive graphic design works contracted out of my shop. With free time available I enjoy learning and the cnc field offers so much. Having a basic understanding of a Graphic Illustrator software is a must. Knowing what formats it creates and what your CAD reads is a winning combination. Inkscape’s never let me down.
