at our University we just got a new logo made of two letters from a 
special 'graphical' font. Instead of installing a font just to use two 
letters I just traced it using tikz, no-one can see the difference, so 
now I don't have to distribute an extra font or some graphics containing 
the logo in all needed colors.
