Graphic design help needed!
 
Got a request for you photoshoppers and graphic design folk. I'm trying to get a unique Christmas present for my brother in law (doesn't necessarily have to be done in time for Christmas though). He wants a shift knob for his Mustang, and wants to have the Ford logo on it, but instead of saying 'Ford', he wants 'Ress', his last name. It would have to be the same script though, or something very similar. I found a company that does custom-logo knobs (for $20!) but they need the graphic in a high quality and resolution, .png .jpg or .gif format.

Here's a good logo to start with, it has clean lines, good resolution, and is a solid color. Just replace 'Ford' with 'Ress', in a similar script, and I'll be eternally grateful! Oh, and if you can eliminate the white space around the logo it's easier on the knob engraving company. [thumb]

So your brother wants the "Ford" font for his name?

That he does. He's 23 and has had 20 (I think) vehicles, with all but one being a Ford. He wants something unique that he can transfer to all of his inevitable future vehicles.

Hopefully there's no legal intellectual property issues with using the Ford's logo likeness, I think it will be fine considering it's a custom piece for a single customer. We'll see what the knob engraver says though. (http://www.americanshifter.com)

Nope. As long as you change it up (his name is more than enough) and not using it to gain any financial increase.

Then it is not an issue.

Here you go! Let me know if this will work. This is in Ford's true type font

Made it bigger to match the design better

EDIT: make sure you download it as a *.png or else the white background will come back.

^^ Nice job.

I was about to go looking for the Ford font before I saw this.
