    Once again a very well written guide. I even picked up a few tips along the way, such as using the Outline mode to properly align objects, and the fact that you can line up gradients on several objects at the same time without changing the colors of the gradients.

    Just thought I’d share my creation based on my own logo colors.

    Thanks again, Chris!

    You make this look easy! That’s just the type of thing you may want to do when designing a new business card. Do you have any tips on the best format to present to your local printer?

    Really neat tutorial. Two little suggestions:
    The rectangles for the drop-shadow aren’t necessary. You could group the 4 regarding stripes and lay an new fill on it. Then apply a gradient and set it to multiply 30%. So you could easily change the size of the shadow.
    You could also scale the underlying stripes up to the border of the overlaying rectangle.

    Is there not an easier way to align the shapes on top of each other? I found doing it manually a bit fiddly and imprecise.

    Good tutorial though, very easy and a great looking result :-)

    Simple is always better in my vision. It looks like a rainbow and i like it.

  20. This is nice, and a clear tutorial. I just hope this actual mark isn’t going to be popping up as a logo all over the web!

  21. Nice Tut Chris,

    Good balance of colour – and gradients is always something I never find intuitive when using Illustrator.

    Many Thanks,
