Logo looking fuzzy on smaller sizes


I created my logo in Adobe Illustrator and i'm happy espect that when i need it smaller, it looks pretty ugly and fuzzy. Like pixels are getting squeezed.

Here is a screenshot of the original on the right and the smaller one on the left:

The 'fuzz' is called anti-aliasing. It's a raster image method to smooth lines that fall in between pixel boundaries.

But since this is Illustrator, it's likely not raster, but vector, and what you are seeing is simply Illustrator's on screen rendering. If you zoom in, the anti-aliasing will likely disappear.

The issue may return, however, if you try exporting your file as a raster image of some sorts. Given the simplicity of the logo form, however, I'd suggest just sizing it the way you want, export it, then open it in PhotoShop to tweak the pixels as you see fit.

I found simple and incredible tip for rasterizing with high quality in Illustrator.

I press File -> Export... -> next you choose name and press Epxress another time and in the next window you click choose "type optimised" and ok. I never got such a high quality export results until this "solution" -
