Retro Badge Logo Design Illustrator Tutorial

In today’s Adobe Illustrator video tutorial I’m going to show you how to create an outdoors themed badge design, featuring a simple mountains graphic and colourful sunset effect using a retro colour scheme. This style of logo is based on embroidered National Park patches, and has become a popular design trend for all kinds of outdoors, adventure, or camping themed brand identities. We’ll use Illustrator’s basic shape tools to construct the vector badge design, then stick around until the end of this tutorial to discover an easy way to make your digital design look real with stitching and embroidery effects.
