Design a SPYGLASS LOGO in Adobe Illustrator
In today’s tutorial we will Design a spyglass logo with the help of the Envelope Distort. Other tools which we will use are Type Tool and Shape Tools.
The name of the company which we have chosen for our logo is MYSTERY WORLD. So the design of the logo will be such that it relates to the name of the company.
Let’s begin with the tutorial.
Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a document of 841.89 pt X 595.276 pt with RGB color mode.
Now follow the below mentioned steps:
Select the Ellipse Tool from the Tool Panel and draw a circle of size 245 X 245 pt. The fill color is disabled and the stroke color is black. (#000000)
After drawing the circle, go to the Stroke Paneland increase the size of the stroke from 1 pt to 7 pt.
Now with the help of the Selection Tool (V) select the circle and click on Objectin the Menu Bar. Place the cursor on Path and select Offset Path.
Now create a -10 point Offset Path. Check the Preview and click OK.
After creating the Offset Path, swap the Filland Stroke. Now, the stroke will be disabled and fill color will be black.
Now, we will divide the inner circle into two parts. Select the Line Segment Tool from the Tool Panel and draw a straight line from left anchor point to the right anchor point of the circle.
After drawing the line, select the inner circle and the line. Go to the Pathfinder Panel and click on Divide. Now Ungroupthe selection and the inner circle will get divided in to two parts.
Select the Type Tool and type the two words- MYSTERY & WORLD in two separate type box.
Select the first half part of the inner circle and right click to bring it in the front.
Now select the word MYSTERY and the first half part of the inner circle. Click on Object in the Menu Bar and place the cursor on Envelope Distort and select Make with Top Object.
Now do the same with the word- WORLD.
In this step, we will create a background for our text and will also change the color of our text.
Select the outer stroke and create an Offset Pathof -10 pt. (As done in Step 1 and 2 to create an inner circle.)
After creating the black inner circle double click on the text to isolate the layer and then change the font color to white.
Similarly, change the font color of the other text.
The words are giving an effect as they are under magnifying glass. So we will give our logoa shape of magnifying class.
Select the Rectangle Tool and draw two rectangles, one of a small size and other will be larger as compared to the first.
Select the Direct Selection Tool and round the edges of the larger rectangle.
Place both the rectangles close to each other and select them. Now go to the Pathfinder Panel and select Unite. The handle of the magnifying glass is created. Now place it at the right place.
With the help of Type on a Path Tool, type a tagline above the logo and year of establishing below the shape. If you want you can add effect to your logo. I have applied the Film Grain Effect on the inner circle.
So this is how you can Design a Logo in Adobe Illustrator which relates with the name and work of the company. Also the design of the logo should be such that when you reduce the size of the logo, the fonts and the shapes are clearly visible.
