Here is a beauty. People have been looking for this Vim logo in a vector format for quite some time. There is of course the old logo, but it looks pretty strange. It reminds me of Tron for some reason.
Anyway this was a pain to make because of all the layers and custom shaping of the V. Also I had to make a bunch of changes to everything once I tested it in the browser because it was all busted.
I usually test my SVGs in the browser as a final OK point. I know if it renders there, then everything should be fine. Also people want it for using as a retina icon now, since the advent of responsive design and development.
If you happen to use this for anything, it would be nice to recieve some credit for it. I actually couldn’t find who made the original Vim logo. It might just be lost in time.
I made a icns version for OSX. You can download it here.
You can change the MacVim icon if you want. I happen to think this one is a little nicer.
