If you’ve been a reader of my blog you’ll know I love a good badge or emblem style logo design. I’ve done a couple of tutorials before and featured plenty of great examples in showcases. Today I fancied creating another logo of my own, so I used the IGN Alliance network my @spoonergaming alter-ego is a part of to create a military style emblem. Follow this step by step Illustrator to see how the whole thing was put together, using various tools to create the range of vector shapes.
IGN Alliance is IGN’s YouTube network for gamers. This little emblem I put together uses a military theme to relate to first person shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield. The logo uses a Staff Sergeant insignia surrounded by a wreath with two large banners, all constructed from scratch with Illustrator’s vector tools.
We’ll begin with the sergeant insignia, draw a black square on the artboard then hold Shift and rotate it by 45 degrees.
