I have the original .eps file of the Catalyst logo, you will find it at:


It can be scaled to pretty much any size in a IMP but if you would like 
it as a png/gif/jpg of a set size/quality and do not have the 
time/inclination to do it just ask and I will do this for you and post 
it to the same location for retrival.
