Typeset logo similar to "LaTeX"

Postby svend_tveskaeg on Sat Nov 17th, 2012

Hi all.

I would like to typeset the logo in the attached picture.

How do I do this when some of the letters are both rotated and shifted vertically?

I know that the "LaTeX" logo i typeset using

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\DeclareRobustCommand{\LaTeX}{L\kern-.36em
  {%
    \sbox\z@ T%
    \vbox to\ht0{\hbox{$\m@th$%
        \csname S@\f@size\endcsname
        \fontsize\sf@size\z@
        \math@fontsfalse\selectfont
        A}%
      \vss}%
  }%
  \kern-.15em
  \TeX}


but I cannot figure out how to do this when the letters have to be rotated too. I would like something similar to what is achieved in this post on {TeX} SX but this is for boxes only and, furthermore, it cannot be shiftede vertically.

P.S. The background color is not important. I would, however, like the last three letters to be printed in the faint yellow but that is not especially important.

You could use \rotatebox and \raisebox for boxes with a single letter.

Okay. What if I want the letters to be typed in yellow?

Thank you!

Use \textcolor of the color or xcolor package. For shading effects TikZ could be used.

Of course. :oops:

Thank you.

Here is what I ended up with:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\newcommand*{\bogstav}[4]{\kern #1pt \rotatebox[origin=c]{#2}{\raisebox{#3pt}{#4}}}
\newcommand*{\bog
}[1]{\textsf{\textup{%
  \textcolor{blue!90}{MATEMA}%
  \textcolor{yellow!90}{%
  \bogstav{-1.3}{-5}{-0.8}{T}%
  \bogstav{-0.8}{5}{-2.3}{I}%
  \bogstav{-0.8}{-10}{0.5}{K}}%
  \textcolor{red!90}{%
  \bogstav{-2.3}{15}{-1.8}{T}%
  \bogstav{-2.8}{-10}{0.5}{A}%
  \bogstav{-2.3}{15}{-1.8}{K}}\,%
  -- #1.~klasse}}
}
