I would like to draw my logo with latex. The logo is very simple. It is a text, followed by a corner, which started at the bottom line.

Example logo

The size of the corner should change according to the font size of the text.

With best

Torsten

Welcome to TeX.SX. I've inserted your image. It might help you to show what you have got so far, or what you have tried, and what problems you have encountered. –  Paul Stanley Mar 16 at 10:27
    
Do you want to put this logo in the footer or at the bottom of the bodyof the page (i.e. the very last line of the body)? –  Bernard Mar 16 at 10:41

Since it is a logo, I suggest you use tikz:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node (a) {The end};
\draw[thick,red] (a.east) -- (a.north east) -- +(-2ex,0);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\begin{document}  
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node(a) {The End};
\draw[very thick,black] (a.base east) -- (a.north east) -- +(-3ex,0);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

Thanks a lot. Using a.base helps to bring the line on the baseline.

The \scalebox allows you to make the text & mark any size

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{stackengine}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\def\endmark{\def\stackalignment{r}\stackon[0pt]{%
  \kern1.5pt\rule{.75pt}{2.1ex}}{\llap{\rule{2.1ex+.75pt}{.75pt}}}}
\begin{document}
\scalebox{3}{\scshape The end\endmark}
\end{document}

enter image description here

fwiw, there is a unicode mathematical character, which may be useful here; the decl in unicode-math is: \UnicodeMathSymbol{"0231D}{\urcorner }{\mathclose}{upper right corner}% –  wasteofspace Mar 16 at 17:45
    
@wasteofspace Thanks for that tip! –  Steven B. Segletes Mar 16 at 20:13
