I would like to make a command \overleaf which prints the Overleaf logo, just like \LaTeX prints the LaTeX logo. Here is a \link to the Overleaf logo. The link includes several examples of the logo and several formats, including SVG, PNG, EPS, and TIFF.

I presume it is necessary to use an image of the logo to make the command? However, I think it would be best if it has the same color as the text (If the text is red, the logo is red; if the text is black, the logo is black.)

Anyone who can help me get started?

    This logo is very likely protected by copyright. So, you should be sure that you are allowed to use it. Apart from that, I would recommend that you convert a vectorised format of the logo (SVG or EPS) to TikZ, which you can then easily use in the context of LaTeX and with different colors. – Jasper Habicht Nov 5 '19 at 20:33

    just save the image, say overleaf.png then use \includegraphics{overleaf} you don't need anything other than teh graphicx package. – David Carlisle Nov 5 '19 at 22:21

    @JasperHabicht I think the advice to convert to tikz is probably bad (for the reason that you start with) the company provide svg logos with particular fonts and branding colours and licenced fro specific uses. If you convert them and modify the fonts and colours then you are almost certainly not using the logos as licenced (but as they say, i am not a lawyer) – David Carlisle Nov 5 '19 at 22:23
  • I would not change the colours that green is part of the corporate branding but the page you link to has a contact link, you coul dask them. – David Carlisle Nov 5 '19 at 22:26

    @DavidCarlisle You are totally right. I was arguing primarily from a technical point of view. – Jasper Habicht Nov 5 '19 at 22:41

I send Overleaf a message, asking them for such a command/ or permission to create one. This is the response: Reply from Overleaf

The example Dan send me was:

Which yields:

Result from code


I sent another e-mail asking if I could create a command for the logo in text (Overleaf, not just the O). This was the response I got (I also asked if I needed to use the branding colours, or if it was okay to make it the same color as the text):
