    Can you please explain how to do this part?

    To create a smoother, lemon-style shape, draw a curved line with the Pen tool that follows the form of the graphic, and complete the path to form a shape.

    I can’t figure it out.

    thx

    DJTrex,

    Hopefully this will clear things up.. take a look at this screen shot:
    http://www.spoongraphics.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/4.jpg

    Where the smaller circles on each side of the large oval were combined, it left sharp angles. Basically you’re using the pen tool to create the triangle shape to follow the contour of the large oval and smooth out the angles. Do this on all four corners then Add to Shape Area with the Pathfinder then you are left with a curvaceous overall shape.

  14. This is the same process I’ve always used :) You gotta start out with sketches, it helps tremendously. Otherwise sometimes you get lost if you go straight into illustrator. Excellent TooT!

  15. Awesome tutorial man.

    This will give me some good inspiration in the future!

    Great site. Question: If I want to design a logotype for my business that I will eventually register as a trademark, are there potential copyright infringement issues with using existing typefaces in my design?

  20. Thanx 4 sharing a great tutorial!

    great tutorial!

  22. tobi says:

    i don’t think that’s a good logo. what about a reproduction in b&w. even a “web/internet or design related company” sometimes has to print its logo.

    the tutorial shows a nice graphics design work but not the right way to make a logotype.

    cheers, tobias

  23. This is very informative tutorial
