Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a quick logo, part of Introducing InDesign.
- We're gonna end this chapter with a fun project…in which we create a quick logo.…And this is the ultimate form…of combining text and graphics inside InDesign…because when you're making a logo…you have to convert the letters to graphics…and then modify those letters as graphics as well.…This is just one approach to making a logo by the way.…There are others but it will give you a sense…for how the process works.…Now let's say our client Grunbyte Inc.…wants to take their current logo,…this italic G inside of a leaf…and they want to replace it with something neatier,…this Roman G inside of this rectangle.…
But the G is still gonna end up being white…and it will be cut by the rectangle…and then the space inside of the G…will be filled with an alternate color…as in the case of this final version…of the logo pictured here.…Now all of these objects are on the master page.…So, if you're working along with me,…drop down to the page number…in the lower left corner of the window.…Click the down pointing arrowhead…and choose A master from the list.…
