Hi mohammad-sn I think the logo improvement is lovely. I am no artist but you may consider using the Mint font if you want. I do not work with vectors but I did a quick play with your first image like so:

Hi mohammad-sn > another very nice logo. As you make them could you please put up links to PNG as well? The font I used is called Formintelegance - it is rather skinny but I fattened it up with GIMP. I don't remember the source I used but a little Google-Fu brought me to this download link.

Way back in 2010 there was a competitiion for a new logo. At that time I opted for the avatar of a member - troken - viewtopic.php?f=175&t=54412&p=333966. I haven't changed my mind since then. It depicts the elegance of Mint admirably. I still have it shown on my Desktop,.

That is very unique. I put it here for easy access because there was no hyperlink.

Don't be discouraged by me RacerBg. Just play around with gimp and see what you can do. I would suggest you start with Logo's and Icons as those tend to be easier to design.
In fact that was the first thing I did... In a galaxy far far away. you want tricky try 16x16 8 color icons. Heck to tell you the truth you have one on me already as I don't actually know how to do fractals :? as to lessons in gimp... never had any myself,nor Photoshop,nor any image software for that matter. I've cludged away at it for oh 15 years now. and If you look at my deviantart you can see some spectacular flops.
