I want to draw a logo that I designed for one website. This logo is shapeless and curved, like this image that I drew with CS: enter image description here

I searched for offline/online tools, but don't find perfect one. Is there any suggestion?

    What OS, what pricing? Do you care about format - do you want Vector or Bitmap? As it is I have at least 5 different programs that can fulfill what you've specified. – Nick Dickinson-Wilde Apr 26 '14 at 19:10
  • @NickWilde Windows, and I don't care about pricing. Also format is not very important for me, but vector is better. I wait for your suggestion. – pooria haddad Apr 26 '14 at 19:50
  • What is "CS"? (Adobe "Creative Suite"??) – MrWhite Apr 27 '14 at 0:24
  • @w3d yes, Adobe Photoshop CS5. – pooria haddad Apr 27 '14 at 14:07

You may use Inkscape and its Path/Node tool (Shift+F6)

It is Free/Open Source and multi-platform.

Here are some tutorials: http://www.inkscape.org/en/learn/tutorials/

Here is how you may begin:

enter image description here

  1. First draw straight lines (1 and 2)
  2. Modify them (3 and 4)
  3. Right Click a line and choose Fill and Stroke. Modify Stroke to increase width
  4. Save: FileExport bitmap will save as PNG, while Inkscape default save format is SVG.

    "Export bitmap" - You may want to keep this as SVG for a logo on a responsive design? All current browsers support SVG, although you might still need a bitmap for legacy support. – MrWhite Apr 27 '14 at 14:48

    OR: (1) use any program to create "shape"; (2) "open" or "import" PNG (or whatever) into Inkscape; (3) use the Path > Trace Bitmap... tool to trace the bitmap; (4) edit the resulting SVG (especially Path > Simplify = CTRL+L). See this screenshot for illustration, using the JPG provided by OP. – Dɑvïd Apr 27 '14 at 17:00
  • I used Inkscape to design my logo and that's really worked! Cornelius thank you for your perfect help and nice designing. by tools number 1 and 3(in your image) I design what I want. @Davïd Also your idea is clear and nice. I use CTRL+L and that really helped. – pooria haddad Apr 27 '14 at 19:26
  • @Cornelius Thank you for your attention my friend... My website still has little more way to become online(when that's become ready to show, I put link here!), but here is the link of my first try of this logo design logo. I think it's not bad, but it's my pleasure to hear your view about it. feel free to say your view and criticism. – pooria haddad Apr 30 '14 at 15:02
  • @pooriahaddad nice design! At lines you may probably use rounded ends. – Cornelius Apr 30 '14 at 15:15
