Welcome to the forum Dan1i hope you enjoy your stay.

If you use Fireworks, Photoshop, or maybe also Paintshop Pro you can use the path tool or, try using a number "8", convert it to path, stretch it and rotate it
Hope it helps. That Logo looks quite nice BTW

Regards - Martha

Hi dann1i,

Welcome to RP!

Martha pointed you in the right direction already but, after trying with the N° 8 I wasn't too satisfied so I tried creating my own ... and found it wasn't difficult at all ... Mind you I'm no expert user of the Pen Tool so it isn't perfect ... but surely a way to do it ...

* First I created a new blank Layer on top of my white Background ...

* Then, I started by creating an elliptical selection ... (Attachment 1)

* Right clicked in/on the selection and chose 'Make Work Path' ... (Attachment 2)

* Selected the Pen Tool and, keeping the CTRL key pressed, I clicked on the 'Path' ... several 'drag points' appeared on it and, still keeping the CTRL key pressed, I pulled, dragged etc until I was satisfied with the result ... (Attachment 3)

* Changed the 'Path' back into a selection stroked it and filled the two halves with different linear gradients ... (Attachment 4), (Attachment 5)

Hope this helps.
