Attached the feather without any of the ugly white pixels (I only added a
white shadow). Just 'render' it from the eps-files of the press-kit

I don't think so. With a light, white shadow (see file) it is usable on any
background. I have added the shadow to increase the contrast; since without
it its really getting all to dark.
