In today’s tutorial I’ll be demonstrating how you can design a vintage style logo with a makeshift starburst effect using Inkscape version 0.92. In this lesson we’ll be focusing on working with text and applying to both the outside and inside of a circle.
The following is just a brief outline of the steps taken to construct this design. For complete step-by-step instructions, scroll down to the bottom of the page for the video tutorial.

The first thing we need to do is download and install the FreeSerif font. Make sure to do so before you open Inkscape. If you install the font while Inkscape is already open, it won’t show up in the font directory until you restart the application.

Vintage Logo Design with Inkscape
The first thing we’re going to do is generate a couple of lines of text. The first line will be for the top half of the circle, and the second line will be for the bottom half of the circle. We’ll wrap each line around the inner and outer edges of the circle accordingly, then create a stroke that can be used as a circular ribbon.
Your Own Website
If you want to project an image of trust and professionalism, you'll need to have your own website and an associated email address. Logos By Nick recommends and uses HawkHost for all of its web and email hosting.
After that’s done, we’ll be creating a circular stroke pattern for the inside area of the design. This will be used as the starburst sort of effect.
Finally, we’ll be creating a stylized star and placing it in the center of our design. We’ll use a larger copy of the star as a reference point for cutting the paths of the starburst pattern so that those lines don’t intersect with the star shape.
The finished design should look something like this…
