1. Introduction to Create A Logo In Affinity Designer: hello. Welcome to how to create a logo on a Fendi designer. I'm Jen with Jenko Designs. Before we get started, let's go over some of the details of our project. In this course, we're going to be creating this logo. I've divided up into four parts in the first part. We're going to create the basic shapes, and I'll show you how to do a vector mask in the second part will draw the crown in the third part. We're going to decorate the crown and I'll show you about blend modes. The fourth part will go over the text, the final design elements, and I'll show you how to apply a shadow as we go through the course signal are some tips and techniques that are going to make it easier for you to use affinity designer to create your next digital art project. In the next video, we'll go over some details on getting started. How to export and share your logo. I'll see you in the next video 2. Getting Started and Exporting Your Project: Hi. And welcome back in this video, we're going to show you how to get started doing your local project. And I'll show you how to export your project as we go through the course so you can share it. We got lots of cover, solicitous Jump right in to get started. Now, in the resource is section of the course. I'm providing you with this affinity designer file so you'll have this file, and when you open it up, it will look just like this. You'll be able to start at the very beginning and and just create your board and go from there. And if you prefer, you can just open up a new file and then start with a fresh art board and just use this file as a reference. Okay? Throughout the course, I'm going to be encouraging you to share your progress by uploading images of your logo. And the easiest way to do that is if you come up to the upper left hand corner to the export persona, go ahead and select the export persona and come over to the right side and in the layers panel, you'll see the art board here So click the down arrow. You want to just select your logo, come down here and hit the create sliced button. Then go to the slices panel right next door here and your slice will be highlighted. Click the share button and then you'll be able to name your file and then click export and then in skill share, go ahead and hit the green. Create a project button and then, when it says upload image, you can just upload your image from that. In our next video, we're going to start creating the basic shapes for our logo. So let's jump to the next video. We'll start having some fun. Now that we've got all those administrative things done, let's jump to the fun part. 3. Creating Basic Shapes & Vector Masks: Hello. Welcome to how to creative logo in a fancy designer. In this first section, we're going to create our art board. I'll show you how to build some shapes using the shape preset tool. We will use the corner tool and I'll show you how to create a vector mask. We have a lot to cover, so let's just jump right in and get started. So first of all, let's go ahead and create our art board. You go to your tools panel on the left hand side, we're going to use the art board tool. So just go ahead and click on that. Then come over into your workspace and just click and drag out an art board. In this course, we're just gonna ply the colors using the eyedropper tool. I have included the palette there on the left hand side and hex values. If you want to hear those as well now you can access the eyedropper tool from two places. Thekla panel here, on the right hand side, is the eyedropper here, and you can also go on your context Toolbar that runs across the top. Your workspace here, you can actually get your eyedropper tool right here as well, so we'll just grab that one right there. And that little square in the center is the only part that you have to have on the color that you want to select, so we have our color selected. You'll see it in the little button here, next to the eyedropper tool, and just go ahead and click that button, and it will apply it. Now if you notice over here in your colors panel on this side, you have your color, selectors. The large one. The lips is your fill color, and the doughnut shape is your stroke color. So let's create our diamond shape will go over to the tools panel again if you click this little arrow here. I know my diamond is already showing up there, but if you click the little gray arrow, you'll get all of the shape presets that air here. So we're just gonna select that diamond tool over into your workspace. Click and drag out your shape. Now, if you hold down the shift key, you'll get a symmetrical shape. So hold on your shift key while you drag and there's are symmetrical diamond. Now we want to play a color so it can go ahead and grab our eyedropper tool. Come over to our example here. It would just grab that red there and click the button to apply it. But I got my stroke forward. So we want to make sure Phil, there is forward. So click the button to apply. Okay, so we have our first time in shape. So next what we want to do is around the corner. So let's go to our corner tool that's over here in your tools, pat on the left hand side. Go ahead and click that. So now you notice that each of the corners is identified by a node. So to use the corner tool, we want to select the node, and then you're just going to click and drag it, okay? Or you can You can select your corner type up here in your context. Toolbar. You can apply a radius. You can either enter it by a numerical value, or you can use a slide bar. OK, but one of things we want to dio with our shape is we want to apply the corner rounding the corners to all four corners. There's a couple of different ways that you can select nodes. Okay, you can click him to select him. You can hold down the shift key and select nodes. Okay. You can hold down the option key. You can click and drag a freehand shape to select nodes, or you can click and drag out what they call a marquee and select all the nodes included in the marquee. Okay, so now that we have all of our nodes selected and it all automatically defaults to the rounded corners Okay, so we're just gonna go here, and I actually just want put into numerical value, make it easier. We're just gonna put in a 15. Okay, So if you click off your shape now, you can see that all the corners are nice surrounded and what we want to do is to create our white and blue layers were just going to duplicate this shape. Okay, so let's get our selector tool back. And I don't think I talked about this before, but these shortcuts that her down here at the bottom This is your selector Tools V on your keyboard, and we'll go over some of these. All of these are not included in the course. We don't use all of them, but we do use some, but these are the most common, and I thought I just put him out there for you. So let's go ahead. Select in the layers panel on the right hand side. Let's select your layer just by clicking it and then right click on it and you want to go to duplicate. So you noticed that the duplicate diamonds on top. So let's go ahead and grab our eyedropper tools. We can change the color white, and we're just gonna go over here and select that white and then hit the button to apply it . And what we want to do is we want to resize it now. You could just go ahead and drag a corner, but you'll notice. See, it doesn't resize it equally, and it it's moving from one side to the other. So what? We want to determine who controls you to get back where we were. We're going to do a combination of short cuts down here and will resize this diamond from the center. So we're gonna come down here and we're going to do a command decides it from the center, and we're going to do a shift and drag to keep it a symmetrical shape. Okay, so go ahead and hold down your shift key. Grab a corner. Okay, so you got you hold down the mouse key. You got a corner now hit the command key. So now it's gonna size from the center, and it's going to stay symmetrical, so we can just We're just gonna I bought. There's no specific size for that. We're going to do the duplicate again. Go over to your layers panel. Right. Click duplicate. We're going to make this one blue. So go ahead and grab that eyedropper tool and come over and grab your color. Click the button to apply it. Hold down the shift key, grab a corner, hold down the command key and size it from the center. So what we're going to do next is we're gonna create this red bar across our shape, So let's go ahead to go to the rectangle tool over here in the tools panel on the left hand side. Go ahead and slick that and then come into your workspace and click and drag out a rectangle Now we do want to apply the red color soldiers. That eyedropper tool again does come over and grab your color and then click to apply it. We want to make sure this rectangle covers the cores of our diamond. So if you go over to the layers panel and just click and drag across the word opacity and it will adjust the capacity and you'll see that it does cover the edges of the diamond. Okay, so take that capacity back up to 100%. Now. What a victor Mass does is it will crop this object to the object below. Well, we don't want to crop it to the Blue Diamond. We want to crop it to the red Diamond because we wanted to go out to this edge here. Let's go ahead, and we need to create another red diamond so that we crop it to that. Okay, so let's go to our layers panel and select your bottom diamond, the red one right click on it, and we're going to duplicate that. So go ahead and grab the top red diamond and put it in. Just click and drag it up underneath the rectangle and you notice this red bar right here? You wanted to go to the edge of the icon right there. It sets in underneath there instead of clipping it inside the rectangle. We have our rectangle. We have our diamond shape underneath. We want to select just the rectangle, right. Click and hit mask to below and you'll see what it did here in the layers panel. You can see in the icon that this rectangle now has the corners here, and it has this cropping symbol. And that's how you can tell that you used a vector mask. Okay, So what essentially will just select this? What essentially we have here is we have the object and you'll see that it has the corners to match the red diamond. Okay. Noticed. Do control our commands. You to get back to what we had before. So there's the basic shape of our logo. We went over how to apply colors. We created our diamond shapes. We used the corner tool to around the corners and we create a vector mask to create that bar across the center. Okay. In our next video, we're gonna show you how to use the pen tool and we'll draw the crown. Thanks so much for watching. I'll see you in the next video. 4. Pen Tool Basics & Drawing The Crown: Hi. And welcome back in this video, we're going to go over some pen tool basics and I'll show you how to draw the crown for your logo. We got a lot to cover, so let's just jump start now. This is the crown that we're going to draw. Okay. And to do that, we're just going to trace over this existing crown to get us started. So in the layers panel on the right hand side, we're gonna go over and goto our crown layer. And if you double click right on that icon, it'll zoom right in to there. Now, we just gonna use a stroke to do an outline. So let's grab our pen tool, okay? And we wanna have a stroke color. So let's come over to our color panel here and just apply a gold stroke color. I'm going to start in the lower right hand corner, and I'm just going to go ahead and click, wants to create the first node, and I'm just going to use sharp nodes for right now. And we'll put one here in the center, then one on this edge here, and I'm just gonna go along and hit all of these high points and then I'll show you how I create the arches. Now, I find this the easiest way for me. Maybe you like Teoh. Go and put a node in side in here, Each one. You can do that as well. Now I'm gonna go ahead and come up and use the closed curve button to close my objects so that I know it's nice and close. When I go to Philip, we're gonna use the no tool to adjust our outline here and create thes arches so you can click it on the tools panel or you can use a on your keyboard. If you do use the keyboard shortcuts. If you click it again, it will go back to the tool that you use before. Okay, so I hit a to get the no tool. If I hit a again, it goes back to the pen tool. If I hit a again, it goes back to the no tool. So that's just a little trick. If you start to use the keyboard shortcuts, it will bounce back and forth between the tools. The previous tool in the current tool. Okay, it's And when you're using the pen tool. You do go back and forth between the pen and the no tool, so that becomes handy. And what we really want to do is instead of adjusting this as just a stroke value, let's go ahead and fill this. And it was just going to click this double ended arrow here in the color panel toe. Apply that color as a fill with no stroke. Okay, then, if we come down to our layers panel and few drag across the world opacity, let's reduce that opacity so I can weaken. See below your crown below there. And then we'll just start to come in here and we're just going to pick a center point and drag those curves in to match. Doesn't have to be perfect, but we're just gonna drag those in and mimic the curves that we have on our crown below. And that'll get us started. Okay, so next we want to change this know down here to a smooth note, okay or rant for a rounded curve. So let me take a minute here and go over some of these buttons that you have in your context. Toolbar. There's some convert buttons. Which means whatever. No, Do you have active? You convert it to a different type of note. It's already a sharp note. Identified it by being a square. Write the note is a square, so that means it's a sharp note. If we click the smooth button, you'll notice it turned it toe around node, and it has its control handles now and then. If the next one is a smart node and what that that's identified by a little dot in the center, and what that does is that just makes it a nice, smooth curve. We have the basics of our crown now. What we want to do is we want to drag out the edges here, little bits. We capture this. Just pull on those lines and you'll see even from a a sharp node you get can get a control handle when you adjust the line, okay or the shape. So let's go ahead and we take our opacity back up to 100% so we can see it and we're going to zoom back out. Now we want to take our crown from this art board and take it into our new logo on our board. So first of all, let's drag the object so will identify it in the layers panel, and we're just going to click and drag it over to our art board in the Layers panel. We also need to drag it to the art board. Okay, so because it's still sitting on the main aren't bored, that's why you can't see it. It needs to be on the correct art board for it, for you to see it. Okay, so just drag it up there, click and drag it up to the on the art board. So we've completed the first part of the crown. Let's jump to the next video and I'll show you how to put all those decorations on, and we'll add some shading. 5. Add Crown Accents and Apply Blend Modes: Hi. Welcome back in this video will complete the crown for your logo. You'll learn how to add the final design elements. I'll show you how to use a subtract tool will go over the basics of blend modes and you'll learn how to apply blend modes, toe objects. We got a lot to cover, so let's just jump right in and get started. Next, we're going to do this diamond shape. Will do are triangles and are ellipses. Down here are ovals for our decorations. Okay, so let's go back to our crown and we're gonna do our triangles first. I sold over to your shape presets, and we'll grab the triangle tool. I'm gonna hold down the shift key. So I get a symmetrical triangle, and then I'm just going to put it nice and center here and you'll notice that it has the feel color the same as the crown. Well, let's just make it a different closely. You can see it, and I'm simply just going to do a copy and paste. You continue the do command C command be or control C control V, or you can right click it and do you copy and paste a swell, whichever one you prefer, Whichever one's easier for you and I'm gonna place thes around and then we'll get him off centered in place. All right, so then I just grab a hold of that white circle on the top to, uh, rotate it. And just for simplicity, I kind of just put that the white circle of rotating I can't write there. That tip there on the tip of the crown. That's just my way of doing it. You could do it any way you like. A matter of fact, you could do diamonds if you wanted to do diamonds here instead of triangles, you could use another shape. You could use ellipses here if you wanted to. Instead of triangles, you could use ah, combination off shapes create a unique shape. Teoh accent. Your crown. Well, now I want to show you how to do the subtraction. So the way subtraction works is you select a layer in your layers panel. Let's select this one, because what happens with subtraction tool is it will subtract the top layer from the bottom layer. So we want to subtract the triangle from our crown SoHo down your shift key and selecting crown. So we have those two selected, then come up to your toolbar and select the subtract tool. Okay, and it subtracts the top object from the bottom. So we'll do that again. Select your triangle, hold down the shift key, select the crown and subtract and will continue to do that through all of these as it subtracts each triangle from the crown just to create that nice decoration. So now let's go ahead and will create our diamond shape. We're going to do our diamond shape, and then we'll do our four ellipses or actually ovals. So let's go back to our crown. We're gonna go down to our shape presets and select our diamond tool and then just click and drag it out. Doesn't have to be symmetrical, so you can just drag from the corner. Now you notice I leave the snapping tool on appear in the toolbar. If it any point you don't want things to be snapped in place. Just hold down the option key while you have the object selected and it'll release the snapping. Okay, so there's our diamond now on these shape on these preset shapes, all of these shapes. Here they have these red dots. You see this red dot here, that is an adjustment point. So all you could do is click and drag that and it adjusts the shape. And every one of the shapes have different the red dots, different ways to adjust them. Okay, so you can experiment with that. So I think that looks pretty good. Let's use that now. The square and creed are ellipses will just go ahead and keep doing, um, and blue, and then we'll change everything to read. Okay, so let's go to our lips tool over here in your tools panel, lengthy ellipse, and then we'll click and drag out some ellipses. I'm going to do the copy and pasting again. But I am gonna angle these because we want to give the illusion that this is a round object . Okay, so these won't just be sitting up here straight, they'll be angled a little bit and then I'll go ahead and grab both of those over in the layers panel holding down your shift key can select two layers. Then you can do the copy and paste, and you can drag them over to the other side, and then we'll go up to the transform tools and click flip horizontal and that'll flip those and then they'll match the ones on the other side. So let's go ahead and zoom out a little bit. Come down to the Navigator panel down here and just zoom out a little bit. I want to be able to capture that red color, so I'm gonna select all of our little blue decorations. I want to apply the red color so we'll grab that eyedropper tool, capture the red, and then click to apply it. That looks pretty good. Now, the next thing we want to do, let's go back to our other crown. On what? It's gonna put these all in a group, do this Command G is the shortcut for grouping them to go back to our of the crown and you'll see that this crown has an ellipse right here is actually the same color as the crown. But we have have applied a blend moto it to give it the illusion of a shadow. Okay, so that's what we're going to do with our crown. Next, let's go back to our crown. We're gonna go back over to her lips to with our lips tools still selected. So just click in one corner and we're gonna click and drag out our lips. Course it's red because we were just using red. That's okay. Just gonna drag it up here. Now, I made a little illustration about blend mode, so I'm gonna go to that right now and we'll discuss blend modes for a minute, and then we'll come right back here. OK, so hold on. Okay, So this is the illustration I made about blend modes. If you'll notice in the layers panel, every one of these ellipses is the same color. OK, but they're changed because of the blend mode. The one on the lower left has an overlay blend mode and blend modes were applied right here in your layers panel. I can click this down arrow, and it shows the complete list of blend modes. Now, the three most popular, most used blend modes are overlay screen and multiply primarily. They are used for overlay and screen are both lightning so that you would use them for highlights. Okay, so this circle here is an overlay. And this circle here is a screen mode, and then the top one is multiply. You normally apply the same color to the blend mode object that you have in your layer below. And then when you apply your blend mode, it interacts with the layer below it. Okay, so, for example, this over this multiply is the exact same color, but it has a darkening effect. These are the same color, but have lightning effects and just notice the color difference. This one is a whole lot brighter. This is the screen. This is a whole lot brighter, then an overlay. But these air to a primarily used for highlights, and this was primarily used for shadows. So just keep that in mind when you're making your illustrations. Okay, so let's go back to our crown, and we're gonna take our lips. And we want our lips to be the same color as your crown. Okay, so grab our color and then click toe, apply it. And then we are going apply a blend mode to this layer so we have our layer active. We come up to our blend modes and we're gonna select, multiply and you'll see what that did. It created a, uh, shadow effect. Okay, so let's zoom out on our art board and see how we're doing. Let's compare it to the other crown. Well, it looks like we made our decorations a little bit bigger, but that's OK. I think it still looks really good. Let's go with that. Doesn't have to be exactly the same as the other one. So how are all you doing out there? Are you able to keep up with the course to have any questions? Comments, suggestions? Go ahead and put those in the discussion area of the course. And how How's your crown? Looking is looking pretty good. Did you use some different decorations? And I did. I'd love to see it, so just click that creative project button and upload an image of your logo to share. So we finished our crown on our logo. In the next video, we'll complete our logo will add the text and the final design elements, and I'll show you how to apply a shadow. Thanks so much for watching. I'll see you in the next video 6. Adding Text & Final Design Elements: Hi and welcome back in this video, we're going to complete our logo. We're gonna add our text in our final design elements. We got a lot to cover it. Let's just jump right in and get so first, let's go ahead. We'll add our text and let's have this word classic. Okay, so let's go to the Tools panel. Left hand side. Grab that text tool. If by chance you hit that gray arrow by mistake, you want select the artistic text tool that's just click and drag it out in your workspace to an approximate size. And then we'll type in the word classic hit Escape so I can grab it by the bounding box and drag it over to the right place. That looks pretty good. Now I want to show you if you notice in the original, the lettering is spaced out. That's called Kern Ing, and there's some shortcuts for that Down here in our shortcuts panel. Let me show you a couple of these. If you do command T, you'll get the character box or character panel okay. Another way to get the character panel is to go up into your menu bar and go to view down to studio, and then you can select it here. The panels that concern text are the character panel, the paragraph panel, and there's a text styles panel, which is a default panel. So that's how you can access the panels in the character panel. There's a number of ways that you can adjust your text cake. Earning is one of them the height from, ah, the baseline, the height between letters, letter spacing, the degree of a slant for your italics. Okay, so that's where you can find all of those for right now, we're just going to select our text and we need to get our text tool back. So go back to your text tool. We need to highlight our text. When you get that little icon, it looks like a capital. I click and drag across your text. We're gonna just that space between letters, so we'll hold down the option key and we use our right and left arrows on our keyboard, and that will help us space out our lettering. And this also works if you have text on a curve. Now, as far as height adjustments and all that, I normally just use the bounding box. Teoh click and drag just much easier. I find it easier than using any other shortcut You can also, because I wanted to match what I have here originally. I'm going to come down to our transform panel here in the lower right hand corner, and I'm gonna make sure that the width is exactly what it is on the other one. So it makes it look perfect. So the width on that should be a 6 10 Okay. And there are height. Should be a 1 21 That's close enough. And then we'll send of that again. So now let's go ahead. We'll do the word quality. We're gonna grab our checks to again this time we want to change our fonts. Who will click this down? Arrow here. And we're going to go to Minion Pro. Both of the fonts that I used Hamburger Haven and Minion Pro are available for free. You can just google him and then download him so we have our fun. Let's go ahead and click and drag out an approximate size and we'll type in the world quot escape out so we can grab that box there and bring it over. We want to adjust the size so will highlight our text again. This time we're gonna come up to the context toolbar, and we're gonna just the size here. And that should be a 64.8 again hit inner and the other thing we're going to do, we're gonna just the I condensed in the original in this original one, I condensed the lettering here. In other words, I shorten it this way. And instead of eyeballing that here while you're watching me, I'm just gonna, uh since I have the text selected, I'm gonna come down to the transform panel and I'm going to put in a to 81 as a wit and hit enter. So we get the exact same match for this lettering. We also want to we're gonna have to highlight that again. So get that text tool back. We need to groups that text tool, apply the bold up in the context toolbar. So should be bold and italics and was just get that centered and adjusted there. Now, the final elements of our logo are the stars, so we're gonna use our shape presets again. So let's go down to our shape preset menu here, and we're gonna click that gray arrow, and we're going to come down here and select the star tool Now for these stars here. I did not do a symmetrical star. You noticed there are a little fat. We'll just click and drag out a fat star and again to make a match. I'm just gonna add in the dimensions down here in a transformed panel. Should be a 1 17.5 by 85 so that we have our large star. Okay, we'll move that down. Now. The last thing we want to do is these Final two stars and I'm gonna go ahead. And just since I still have the star tool selected, I'm gonna go ahead, hit, escape, and then I can click and drag out another start over here, and we'll just again put in the values for these stars. Make it easier. So down in the transform panel, you want to put in 37 for the width and we want to put in a 29 for the height. Okay, You know, we'll hit escape so you can see that now we're gonna go ahead and select that and do a command C Command V. We're going to duplicate it, make sure it matches, and then bring that over. I want to zoom in so I can play. Sees a little better. So I'm gonna zoom in in in your navigator, pound down here in the bar, Um, the little right hand corner in this navigator panel to this great box. If you click and drag this gray box, it adjust the view so you consume into just what you want. Let's try and get these stars making my selector tool back, and we'll just these stars. I'm gonna go ahead and select all three of these stars in the layers panel because I don't think there that center there we are. All right, let me go back out and go to our main view. All right? That completes our logo. Now, if you want to put a shadow around it like when you noticed the shadow that I have here around this one, if you want to put a shadow around it, let's just go ahead and select who? All of the elements of the logo itself in the layers panel. So select the top star and then will come all the way down and hold down the shift key, select all of those elements and do a command g to group them. And to that group, we want to add, in effect, a shadow effect. So as you have the group highlighted, go to your effects panel next, right next to the layers panel. And we want to add an outer shadow so you can click that we're going to bump up the radius a little bit and course you can't see it yet because we don't have an offset. So when you adjust the offset, then you see it begin to pop out a little bit. Okay, the bigger the radius. If you notice as I do the radius bigger. You noticed the ah blurrier The shadow becomes okay, just a just that like that. Now, if you noticed, this has a little bit of an effect on the side on the bottom. So let's adjust that and you just that here with the dialled, just click and drag it, and it will adjust a little bit, do a little bit there, and if we increase our radius a little bit. We should get a little to the top, just like that. Okay, so that's how I created the shadow. And there you have it. You just completed your first local on affinities. I good listens. So how did your logo come out? How does it look? Please share a quick photo your logo with the class by clicking that break green creative project button. Did you have any problems using our understanding any of the tools or techniques that I explained during the course? If you did, please go to the discussions area. Send me a quick question and a comment suggestion. You need clarification or anything like that by creating your logo. In this course you used shaped presets to create vector objects. You use the corner tool, you create a vector mask, you use the pen and the no tools to draw objects you applied shading. Using a blend mode, you added text and adjusted the spacing. Using keyboard shortcuts, you defined objects using the transform panel and you applied shadow effect. Thank you for participating in the course. Hope you enjoyed your adventure into creating a logo and a fancy designer. Please take a moment and fill out a review. I'd love to hear your feedback. It helps me become a better teacher. And it helps me create better courses for you to enjoy. Have a great day and happy creating.
