Create a Colorful Logo Design in Adobe Illustrator

To complete our logo design we will be combine a few simple shapes. With some very simple linear gradients we will try to increase the depth and to create an eye catching design.

As always, this is the final image that we’ll be creating:

Tutorial Details

  • Program: Adobe Illustrator CS5
  • Estimated Completion Time: 45 minutes
  • Difficulty: Beginner-Intermediate

Step 1

Let’s create a new document first. Make sure to set the dimensions to 500 x 500 pixels and the Color Mode to RGB.

We will start with the Polygon Tool. Select it in the Tools Panel and click on the Artboard. It will bring up the Polygon Option box. Set the Radius to 150 pixels and Sides to 5 and hit the OK button. Fill color is not important.

Step 3

We need to modify our Polygon a little. Select the yellow shape and under Effect select Stylize > Round Corners.

Step 4

Make sure to expand the shape. Select Object > Expand Appearance. It will turn the object into an editable shape.

Next thing we have to do is to create the “hole” in our modified pentagon.For that we will use the Polygon Tool again. Grab it from the Tools Panel and click on the Artboard to bring up the Polygon Options Box. Set the parameters as shown in the picture below and hit the OK button.

Step 6

Make sure to align both shapes. Select them and under the Align Panel hit both, Horizontal and Vertical Align Center.

Step 7

Now we need to create a “hole” in our Polygon. Select both shapes and under the Pathfinder Panel hit the Minus Front button. It will cut out the middle part of the Polygon.

You should end up with something like this.

Step 8

In this step we will try to create specific ribbons that will constitute our logo. To do that we need to divide the shape we have just created into 5 parts. One of the possible ways to do that is to create certain paths by using the Pen Tool (P). Since some people have difficulties with this tool we will try to avoid it by using a small trick.
