Creating Cool Logo Inspired by Rainbow
Almighty Allah Azza wa Jalla who has created a beautiful rainbow in the sky. A rainbow with colors that decorate it has inspired artists to create a masterpiece. In this tutorial, we will use Adobe Illustrator to create a cool and simple logo armed with creative ideas, playing with colors and a bit of typography techniques. I made this logo for Painthink, my personal blog in Bahasa Indonesia.
Final Logo Preview
Before we get started, take a look at the image we’ll be created. Larger versions can be viewed here.
We start by creating a new Illustrator document size of 1920 x 1200 pixels and set the Color Mode to CMYK. Now it is time to type. Use the Type Tool, here I use Vectora LT Std Font and set the font size to 400pt. Type one by one of each letter ‘painthink’ on the canvas.
Next we change the color of each letter. Here’s color composition that I use to create this logo,
- p (C=0 M=100 Y=100 K=40),
- a (C=40 M=35 Y=65 K=25),
- i (C=60 M=30 Y=10 K=15),
- n (C=19 M=37 Y=59 K=0),
- t (C=46 M=27 Y=100 K=35),
- h (C=43 M=68 Y=51 K=0),
- i (C=0 M=80 Y=90 K=0),
- n (C=40 M=35 Y=65 K=25),
- k (C=33 M=93 Y=0 K=0).
Now we set the spacing between the letters. Set each letter to cover a small portion of the letter in its left, look like the following picture.
The final step, select all the letters and go to the Transparency window, change the Normal mode to Multiply.
This is the end result of a cool logo we have made. Don’t forget subscribe to Grafisia RSS Feed.
