There is a difference between raster graphic like the one you can make in for example Windows Paint and vector graphic. To make a vector graphic you have to use programs like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. If you use them you have to avoid bitmaps. Vector format is special because it gives logo perfect edges. The logo you present doesn't look like a vector graphic. It's blurred.

Also, each logo - if not beautiful by itself - should carry some message. Your logo seems to tell that there is a broken ink printer. Can you imagine anybody using logo like this?

I uploaded the 600x400 jpeg, that's why its blurry. And Im using AI. The idea of the logo was to create a maze with CMYK colors that flows throw it.

Hello!
I recommend to get acquainted with the rule of color compatibility. Your main color (which is used as a substrate and in the name “Brand”) is absolutely inconsistent (no harmony).
Also, always start creating a logo in one color (this is one of the basic rules for a proper logo). If it looks great, you can color it. The fewer colors used in the logo, the better (preferably not more than three).
A quality logo should be easily integrated in black or white. At the moment, if your logo is filled with a dark color, it will turn into a stain.
Avoid small details. Hanging drops too small are difficult to distinguish.
Good luck!

Excuse me. I will add more.
Try to come up with something whiter unique. The idea of such a labyrinth is rather widespread. Honestly, this is not interesting.

"I uploaded the 600x400 jpeg, that's why its blurry."

We all upload samples in 600x400 resolution. Please take a look at logos displayed in logoground. They are sharp. If your original logo is in vector format you probably generated jpg file with much too strong compression settings. Pink line is quite blurry when comparing to the rest.

@sculptor
It seems to me that a small screenshot was made. On the server "imgur" he simply stretched to normal size. Therefore, such artifacts appeared.

Hi, crisdesignart!

I give you some point from view side on this logo

1. What is gonna used for?
2. Colors kinda look bad
3. The width of the path is not the same / unbalance proportion (look at right side and left side)

For Basic i think it's enough. Hope that helps

when exporting your work, you must set a resolution of 300dpi so that it won't blurry even though size is 600 x 400.

Just to clarify, I know that many people use the terms DPI and PPI interchangeably, but technically, DPI refers to Dots Per Inch and PPI refers to Pixel Per Inch. The dimensions of the JPG preview file that users upload to LogoGround are measured in pixels only, this is because the file will only be used on the screen (and monitors have pixels, not dots), so talking about inches is irrelevant in this case. By the way, monitors have a default resolution of 72 PPI, but there is no need to specify this as the resolution is virtually locked (you can't increase a monitor's resolution).

To create a JPG preview for LogoGround, there are two options in Adobe Illustrator: 1) Save for Web, which is the preferred method (optimized, 100% quality, no ICC profile), which will yield the appropriate dimensions and compression level; and 2) Export, which offers the option of increasing the resolution, but if the resolution is increased above the Screen option (72 PPI), the dimensions of the image will be altered, which is inadequate as LogoGround has a requirement of very specific dimensions for the JPG preview (600 pixels by 400 pixels).

In any case, the aforementioned issue with blurriness on a JPG file is simply the result of too much compression, as already noted by Sculptor above; the blurriness is cause by compression artifacts and has absolutely nothing to do with resolution (DPI or PPI).

Hope this helps,

Ortega Graphics

An alternative way (regarding to @Ortega Graphics):
Copy your logo image from illustrator and then copy paste it in photoshop with 600px X 400px canvas dimension, Save as jpeg or Save for web (no need to compress). It's always works for me.

@mediarupa, what is the advantage of copy/pasting to Adobe Photoshop to create a JPG file, if the exact same result can be achieved using just Adobe Illustrator without that extra step? If you have issues creating a JPG from Adobe Illustrator, it is better to find the cause of the issue (and fix it) than to use an unnecessary (and longer) alternative method.

@Ortega Graphics, True! I agree with you. But sometimes we try so many ways just to fix the problem when we start at the first time (learning process). And i've just found that way and it could be an alternative solution. Of course it takes (longer) effort but when it helps..why not?

Just sharing my own experience..that's all :)

Another tip I can give you is "less is better".
Remove, remove, remove.
Watch your concept and think of it with one less element.
Try removing the colored background from the maze. (I find it superfluous and kills the design)
Look at the color path and draw it without those color drops (they are too small).
I hope these tips can help you.

@Mediarupa, you basically said that you tried to fix a problem and that your alternative (longer) solution helps. But you haven't described the actual problem you were having. Maybe I can help you. Exactly what happens when you use Save for Web in Adobe Illustrator with the proposed options (optimized, 100% quality, no ICC profile)? What is the specific problem?

@Ortega Graphics, No i don't have a problem in saving the file right now. Years ago when the first time using Adobe Illustrator.
