This time we will use Stroke since the texture is a set of strokes : OK. The rest is easier. At this point our wedge of lime is ready, and we need to duplicate it.


Another convenient way of selecting multiple objects is holding Shift and clicking on objects. In the pop-up box set as follows and click Copy : You should have this now:. It repeats or applies the latest transformation to the selected object. We have a tasty lemon. Now for some details.

First of all, group all the slices together to keep things in order. Then make sure nothing is selected by clicking somewhere else on the artboard. As you see now, the green circle is in front of or above our lime. Select that circle and duplicate it below itself as we did in 3.

To align objects perfectly, use the Alignment tools. Those tools are located in the Control Panel, when the Selection Tool is active. See below to understand various alignments: Note that these examples are true for Align to Artboard : If you choose Align to Selection , then objects will be aligned with respect to the outer boundaries of the selection.

Now you can play with sizes and colors if you want. If you make the lime smaller and change the text colors it will look much better: Alright, congratulations with your first logo! If you want to save your logo in. While the second way exports the whole Artboard, the first way lets you export only your object s. After that, when you use Save For Web and Devices you will see that the image size is the new size of your Artboard. Also note: you can check Transparency when saving for web and you will have your logo with a transparent background. While vector graphics are typically two-dimensions you can create nice-looking 3D objects as well.

In this tutorial we will create a simple 3D text with a grungy background like below: As I said, we are now learning the basics, so that you get more familiar with the interface and some useful tools. Once you are, you will see that there are no limits to what you can do with Illustrator.

Go to your favorite website for free textures and backgrounds and find a nice grungy background. Most probably it will be way too big, so you will need to scale it down. Use Transform Panel to control the size of your image: Note: you can use your own values, just make sure it fits the document. Select Rectangle from Tools M , draw a rectangle, same size as your background image you may want to use the Transform panel to set exact values and set the Fill color to light brown and no stroke:. You can always use Transparency panel to change the way an object or a layer blends with layers below.

Make it big enough like 65pt , set tracking to and choose the White color:. Use Create Outlines — right-click on the text and choose Create Outlines , to convert text into vector paths:. With Direct Selection Tool A , select only the faces of the text hold Shift to select multiple objects : Tip : while selecting, make sure that the anchors are blue and none of them white. To do that, zoom in a little bit and click somewhere in the middle of the objects here — text faces. Adding the gradient is pretty easy — just select the object, click on the Gradient panel on the right and set up your colors.

There are lots of them.
