Here's a simplified one-color vector Students for Free Culture blocks logo. Here's how you create one for your own chapter. (I'm using the example of the Cornell University chapter.)

   $ sed s/schoolNameGoesHere/Cornell\ University/ freeculture_logo.svg > cufreeculture_logo.svg
   $ inkscape -z -A cufreeculture_logo.pdf -E cufreeculture_logo.eps -e cufreeculture_logo.png cufreeculture_logo.svg

By default, the png that that returns will have a transparent background and relatively arbitrary dimensions. Run the following to get one with

  • (-b) white background
  • (-y) opaque background
  • (-w) width of 200 pixels and a proportionate height
   $ inkscape -z -A cufreeculture_logo.pdf -E cufreeculture_logo.eps -e cufreeculture_logo.png -b white -y 255 -w 200 cufreeculture_logo.svg

If you need something more custom, edit the svg with Inkscape or any text editor.

Having only one color, this logo is easy to print with non-digital methods. Tom has linoleum cut of the mirror image of this logo. Talk to him if you'd like to use it.
