How to design a logo in Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop

In this tutorial I will demonstrate you about how to design a logo in Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop, follow below steps:

People think that designing a logo is a tough task but in reality it is not. With   help of se simple tools like Ellipse Tool, Grid & Star Tool you will be able to make   basic shape. After that with some strokes, radial/ linear gradient, Gaussian blur, radial blur & Drop Shadow you be able to see   final logo.

Our aim is to design this logo:

    Construct a 700 pixel by 700 pixel document.  n turn   Grid (View > Grid) & Snap to Grid (View > Snap to Grid). After that, you will require a grid every 10 pixel. Just go to Edit > Preferences > Guides & Grid, put “10″ in “Gridline every:” Textbox & “1″ in “Subdivisions” textbox. Fore preview you can open Info palette with size of your shape. Doing this will help you in creating   logo quickly.

Choose   Ellipse Tool (L), hold Shift, Make a 600x600px shape & give a particular name to it like “01″. Leave it blank & add a 30 point, adjust it to center stroke.

Choose Star Tool, click & drag on Art board & do not release   mouse button. Press down arrow for subtracting sides of   star  n press “Ctrl’ key to manage   Inner Radius. Now with Direct selection Tool you must choose each anchor point & move it clearly. This can take little time. Now, take a closer at each anchor point to understand the exact position at   grid. This grid snap can help in getting an idea to move forward in work.

Now see   circle. Choose shape “01″ & hit Ctrl + C once after that hit Ctrl + F two times. This will put 2 new copies of “01″. Go to   Layer panel, choose   last copy & go to Object > Exp &  n choose   upper most copy & remove stroke. Again choose both shapes & click on Divide button from Pathfinder panel.  n you will get 3 new shapes. Again, go to Layers panel, delete   inner circle  After that separate these two shapes by pressing Shift + Control + G. Fill   shapes (remaining ones) through linear gradients as shown.

Choose   original “01″ shape & bring that to front by pressing “Shift + Ctrl + ] “. Lower   stroke size to 2pt after that go to Object > Exp & Appearance. Color   resulting shape with R=241 G=241 B=243. Alter   blending mode to Color Dodge, put down its opacity to 60%  n put Radial Blur effect (Effect > Blur > Radial Blur). Make a copy of that shape. Change its blending mode to normal, remove by erasing Radial Blur  n put up   opacity to 80%. Choose all shapes created till now except star shape & group  m. Give name to this group “Ring” & bring it to Front by pressing Shift + Ctrl +Choose   original “01″ shape & bring that to front by pressing “Shift + Ctrl + ] “.

Disable Snap to Gird (Shift + Ctrl + “) & enable Smart Guides (Ctrl + U). Choose Pen Tool (P) & Make 3 paths for achieving   results shown in image 1. Each path will start & ends at an anchor point. Now, you will be able to easily locate   starting & ending anchor points with help of Smart Guide. Choose  se paths with Star shape & click on Divide button from Pathfinder panel. This will result inDisable Snap to Gird (Shift + Ctrl + “) & enable Smart Guides (Ctrl + U). Choose Pen Tool (P) & Make 3 paths for achieving   results shown in image 1.

Choose  se paths with Star shape & click on Divide button from Pathfinder panel. This will result in dividing star into six parts or you can say shapes. Just fill  m with color &   gradients shown below.
