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

  • 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 '14 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

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 '14 at 17:45

\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.
