      Now down below i will show you the original logo on paper,

      As you see in the redone logo i still need to let the text lean to the left. But I have still not found an option within fireworks that can do this for me. Does anyone has an idea how i can lean the text to the left? Thanks for u help!

      Greetz,

      Patrick

          I'm no expert but...

          Select the text - select the 'Skew' Tool - you'll see a box round the
          selected text with small black squares - hold your mouse over the top
          middle square and drag to the left.

            Yes, that is how I would do it as well. In fact I'd first draw the logo
            (box's) and the text straight. Then select the text and the logo and skew
            all objects together.

                  You might consider doing it in Illustrator if you have it, you'd use pretty much the same technique to obtain that effect.

                  That way if the client asks for a print-ready file you're all set!
