Uploading Logo To Gingersauce: How to Save Logo in .SVG Using Illustrator?

If you’re using – or planning to use Gingersauce brand book builder, you should know: everything starts with a logo. Once you upload it into the wizard, the system processes it and picks up colors, generates variation, misuse cases, etc. 

There is only one rule: the logo should be in .SVG format. This is the only format (yet) that the system knows how to process.

In fact, saving a logo in .SVG won’t take you more than 1 minute, let us show you exactly how you can do it.

Saving a logo in .SVG

  1. Make sure your logo is a vector in the first place.
  2. Open your logo in Adobe Illustrator.
  3. Select the logo.
  4. In the top menu bar choose Object > Expand.

  2. Then go to File > Save as, and pick the .SVG format.

  3. Press OK, and you’re good to go!

Now try uploading it to Gingersauce – should work like a charm 🙂
