There's nothing unique about it, so I would just redo it from scratch using the original colors as a guide.

When I re-worked your Design Elements logo, I didn't have any kind of font to match what you had there, so I blew it up 6 or 8 times bigger and erased the background from the text so I could straighten the lines that should be straight and smooth out the curves that were jagged. Then I added an embossed layer style and the yellow color to match your separator bars. Then, shrink it back down to the original size.

Coolness, so start out by making it a lot bigger and erasing the background so all you have to fix is the text. I can do that emoticon

With the banner above, the BG is a solid color and I think most graphics apps have a select tool to select a certain color. Photoshop calls it the Magic Wand. Just click on the BG and the entire color is selected. Then just hit delete.

The tool has a sensitivity adjustment if you end up selecting too much or not enough.
