I post today to share a couple of new logos done in Adobe Illustrator CS6. The process was very experimental, but as I approach the completion of the designs, I am pleased.
The DSR logo was originally hand-drawn. I then vectorized it and played [a lot] around with the colors. The image to the left is my favorite of all the edits. I used a Deke's Techniques video (of lynda.com) to place an image as a color fill on the states, gradients to fill the space created by the lines, and the pen tool to fill the letters. The lesson of the video is a little different from what I actually did, but again I say, the process was very experimental! I used his technique of adding a stroke to the text of the Minor Bros logo (below) as well. As far as the reflection for that logo, I used a howtechgraphics video from youtube and some blurring effects I learned some time ago.
That's all for now. If you're trying anything similar, make sure you check out the videos I used as guides. They are extremely helpful! As always, thanks for reading! I'll be updating my website in the meantime (yes, I'll still at it).
