Use the basic drawing tools and transformations to create a logo for a design project.
- [Instructor] Oh, do you know how I love it…when we sit here drawing together.…It's fab.…We're going to continue on with the logo…that we started working on.…And we're going to tap L on our keyboard,…that gets us the lips tool from over here in the toolbox.…And I'm going to draw a circle.…I'm going to basically look at this line, here.…There almost is a circle just there.…I'm going to move my cursor just up above it, like so,…to where I imagine…the top of the rest of that circle will be.…And the left edge of this one.…I'm going to hold down the shift key.…
I'm going to keep that held down until after…I release the mouse button.…It constrains that.…And drag it across.…Wow, look at that, bang.…There we go.…Release just there and then release the shift key.…That's not too bad, is it?…And then I'm going to move to the middle of the shape…and you'll see that it changes to a transform icon…which is what newer versions of Illustrator…have done for quite some time.…Hold down the alt or option key,…which starts a copy,…and shift to keep it constrained.…
