Chapter 4. Logos and Textures

The logo is an important part of any web page, advertisement, or letterhead. GIMP is an excellent tool for creating logos. In fact, many built-in logo plug-ins are available under Image: File > Create > Logos. They’re self-explanatory, so we won’t cover them in this book.

In addition to logos, we discuss textures in this chapter because textures are an important part of logo design. Many of the same techniques are effective for both logo design and texture creation. We demonstrate this in the upcoming tutorial, in which you’ll build a texture and then use it as the basis for a logo.
