In this video, explore a case study, using Adobe Illustrator to recreate two successful logos that feature lines.
I want to create approximations … of two very popular logos that use arrows. … The recycle logo and the British National Rail logo. … And deconstructing logos like this … can really help provide you with useful techniques … that you can adapt to your own needs. … So starting out with the recycle logo. … I have a triangle. … It has, in this case, … a 17.5 green stroke applied to it. … I am going to switch to my direct selection tool … which will show me my Corner Widget. … then come to your View menu, … and it's this option right here. … For me, it currently says Hide Corner Widget. … I can drag this in to round the corners, … but I actually want to round the corners … to a specific size, … and that is going to be 20 pixels. … So I'm going to come up to my tool options … right here and type that in. … Now, I'll come and choose my scissors tool. … I want to break the path in three places. … There, … there, … and there. … So I now have three open paths. … I'll select them all. … Come to my stroke options. …
