“A company’s logo in vector format can often be ripped from a PDF on their website (such as a report, accounts, or newsletter).
“Simply import the PDF into Illustrator, navigate to the correct page, delete all the gubbins you don’t need and you’re in business. If the PDF has been correctly formatted, you’ll also get the correct Pantone/CMYK values too.
“Sometimes the logo is embedded in the PDF in pixel rather than vector format but that doesn’t happen too often, I’ve had around an 85% success rate using this technique over the past few years.”
Thanks for the tip, Jon.
